Thread: OK, Fenix ignored me.. alternative 10440 Cree???

    Hahaha OK, Fenix ignored me.. alternative 10440 Cree???

    Hi,

    So, Fenix ignored me and my reasonable request for a one-stage 135-lumen 10440 light!!!

    Anybody have any idea where else I can get a similarly specced single 10440 high power "keychain" light for my wife?

    Ta,

    This should fit the bill:Huntlight FT04XJA3 SSC

    Don't know about the SSC version, but the original lux model was regulated on 10440. Should be the brightest single-stage AAA out there.

    FYI, here's a review:

    Any AAA sized light that is putting out 135 lumens on a 10440 will get extremely hot, and will also drain the cell very quickly, to the point of overdischarging it if you aren't careful.

    The new model isn't regulated on a 10440 like the old one was, but Huntlight may produce a Seoul P4 light with the original circuit intended for Li-Ion use. It should be 55-60 lumens, but I'll know for sure if my P4 upgrade of my old model light is successful.

    I believe at such a high current drain, the light will show very obvious signs of dimming before the batt even reaches near 'overdischarged'. Its the super-low modes that will suck your unprot batts beyond repair.

    hi face,

    try a LiteFlux LF2. It has

    1) battery voltage indicator built-in &

    2) Li-Ion / NIMH overdischarge protection built-in which you can decide to enable or disable.

    The Draco with the 10440 extension is just what you're looking for.
