Love this little light! I'm shocked at how low the moonlight can really go. It say's 1-30 on the website, but I'd bet it is super close to being sub-lumen...

How do you get it that low? I did engineering mode but I could only get around 10L.

I haven’t mess with the engineering mode. According to manker website, you can program moonlight mode between 1-30 lumen.

Battery maybe? Not sure. But when I put the light in engineering mode, I can get to where the light just barely lights up at all; in fact, it pulses. I then click it and the light ramps up in output.

I’ve got a photo of the light next to my Quark Hi CRI on in moonlight mode and we know that is less than a lumen...it’s an iPhone 8 photo set to auto so take the color and all with a grain of salt. The funny thing is that I couldn’t care less about such an output level...:p

Manker e04vn pocket clip is nice but it doesn’t stay tight in my pocket.. so my opinion on the clip is failed..

they should make a pocket clip like a spyderco para military 3. Very tight.

I tried it on my sweat pants and it hold tightly. However your khakis seems thinner so a slight bend of the clip will make it hold much tighter. Must remove clip from light for the bend. The light is so short it will always be at the top edge of your pocket which adds to the insecure feeling.

Timeback and this light has the same type of machined clip as oppose to stamp and bent on spyderco and most other lights. Stamp and bent operates better as a clip but machined are a bit more classy. Like I said if you give it a slight bent it will hold so hard you will have a hard time pulling it out of your pants.
