I’d like to see a side by side for comparison.

The skinniest gal at a weight watchers meeting.

I almost think bigger is better in these lights.
They’ll never put on a corset and won’t be mistakened for a pocket EDC light.
So might as well go chunky

I would be interested to see the QT next to the SL.. there really is a huge difference in this one compared to my last one. I don’t mind having this one in my pocket.

We are at the beach this week and last night we were looking for the sand crabs with the kids. The color of this Emitter is amazing. I will try to get a picture of it later tonight.

@thermal guy does the cr123 fit in there pretty decent? I was always curious if I could run one in the 18350 light in a pinch if it was all I had.

If you shake the hell out of it it will rattle a bit.but does not lose contact. Other then that it works. A 16340 works the same way.

I have been using a cr123 in my Tiny Nugget SL 18350 for months. No problems at all with fit or contact. It's not very bright on high but bright enough for what I need.

Arrived

Compared to a prior similar model... this light is several steps forward in: heat output, fit & finish, threading, the 'piston' design, smoothness of operation, output, MUCH smaller & lighter, spring design.

Also, the anodizing required the base metal undergo sand/media blasting. It's got a nice matte finish that's just enough grip to not be 'slick' anymore.

Did you just add some heat to get that pink on there, @turbodog?
Also, did you solve the rubik's cube or just pull the stickers off and replace them?:)
