Get the Acebeam T20 - its the latest XP-L HI LED flashlight that is able to throw 1km. Uses only 01 x 18650 battery~
Size wise the head is bigger than the M2X-UT so thats its drawback
Tint is also more towards neutral-warm side
Well Ace, they mentioned all the ones I would have. However you shot it down due to head size, So I think your thread title is a tad misleading.
Google the BLF D80 and see what you think about the head size. It is sorta in-between others mentioned. Don't let the price fool you. It is a awesome little light. For its price, you could buy one of the above mentioned (awesome) lights and get this as a spare or back up. It is one of my favorite "small" throwers. It carries well in a open top holster with the tail down.
BLF D80 Lucky Sun is a very good option if you are OK with the head size.
I have one in warm white tint and my missus likes the tint over my other expensive lights such as Nitecore TM16 and Olight M2X-UT.
As the above poster mentioned, don't let the $20 group buy price fool you.
If you still prefer slimmer head for a thrower, maybe the Nitecore MH27 suits your need.
You just can't defy the law of physcs if you still require latest greatest thrower but want the package in small reflector
Since M23 and MH27 were mentioned, Eagletac G25C2 MKII is worth adding to the list.
It is currently my preference in the class of compact throwers with 1.6"/40mm head.
Like it for aesthetics, UI, and availability of XP-L HI neutral white LED option. :thumbsup:
Just need to overcome procrastination and finally order one.
I'll add to the suggestions for the MH-27.
I was just looking for a light, and my requirements were fairly similar to yours. Good thrower on 1x18650, but not one of those ones with the colossal reflectors/heads.
After considering the Olight M-23 and the Nitecore P12GT I went with the MH-27.
The MH-27 has the new XP-L HI V3 diode which is domeless from the factory, which has some advantages over other lights that are "dedomed" like the Vinh mods or the Olight M-23.
That, and the quality on the MH-27 is amazing. All around great light, I highly recommend it.
I concur with royalpig180. My NC MH27 is the go to EDC now over Fenix E35UE and thrunite. Really like the throw and spill, enough for dog walking in the dark of night and checking out the local wildlife.
