    Default JETBeam RRT-0 Overview With Lots of Pictures

    I got my JETBeam RRT-0 Raptor today. All I can say is to JETBeam! This thing is a beauty....A work of art....No! A Picaso, a Rembrant, A friggin' Masterpiece! What a compliment and wonderful addition to the Raptor family of lights. An EDC to behold...And I could go on. But really....A one cell light that can put out 240 lumen....just like its bigger brothers. That is phenomenal! It has the same feel of quality and craftsmanship that we all have come to expect from the JETBeam company. It utilizes the same UI as its siblings...That being the Rapid Response Ring to change the levels, and a momentary forward clicky to activate it. It has a total of 5 settings from a high of 240 lumen with the Lithium rechargeables, and 180 lumen with an alkaline or nihm AA...to a user changeable low of 10 lumen or a low low of 1 lumen. This light will be at home loose or clipped in your pocket as well as in a holster on your belt.

    Looking forward to some beamshots... Even better: outdoor beamshots!

    By the way, have you tested it on CR123 primaries?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not outdoor shots yet, but I will. Going to bed soon. I'm old, it's raining, and it's after 11pm, and 6am comes early....

    I don't have a Nitecore Extreme, but it beats the heck out of the NDI with both rcr123a's and 14500's, even though I am using an 14500 in the NDI. It is even brighter than the NDI using a nihm AA cell.

    You should see it in person. It is absolutely beautiful! It is about the same size as my single cell 123a Surefire pictured above.

    Will it tailstand without the rubber button making it lean to one side?

    Unfortunately the rubber just barely makes contact with the table surface, and it leans ever so slightly. Nothing extreme for sure.

    Hows the clip....will it hold the light on a belt......never really liked clips that just wrap around the body tube. Sometimes i tend to bump into things and my phone meets the floor....i tend to use holsters because of this.

    The clip needs some work for sure. Seems like it was an afterthought. If I use it, it will be clipped down in my pocket. I will probably holster it though. The clip looks and feels like it could detach from the light. Hopefully they will come out with something better.

    Yeah that was my impression when I saw the pictures of it and then read that it's supposed to tailstand. But beyond that and the cool tint, the only question I have left is how well does it regulate on both 14500 and NiMh. Can't wait for a runtime graph from one of the awesome reviewers.


    Thanks for the first impression and pics.

    It does seem awfully long for a single AA light (and even for a single 123 light). Nice looking tho.
    Bought, sold, lost and busted too many lights to remember. Certified Zebralight fan. High CRI baby.

    OK....I have slept on it with great contemplation, and have decided with unreserved clear mindedness and pure objectivity that the RRT-0 is the beautiful, sexy, hunk of hardware that beguiled me yesterday when she first came in to my life....

    Ehemmm .....So anyway, I will be getting a few more pictures up later today. Unfortunately outdoor beam shots will not be coming for a couple of days. We have a huge honking storm passing over us that's dumping a ton of rain. One thing that I did discover is that the Surefire F04 diffuser and F05 red filter fit perfectly on the RRT-0

    Hey didnt realize where you lived.....were also getting all this rain as well.....but no power outage so far....too bad since i have most of my lights ready as well. Its a shame about the clip, but that would not stop me from getting it anyway.

    Nice looking light . . . but those beamshots: ring-o-rama !!!

    And . . . are they as green-looking in real life ?

    I, too, would be interested in a side-by-side with the Extreme.

    Looks very beautiful indeed!
    Does the ring give a good tactile feedback when turning?
    It'll be awesome if such a tiny light can throw 200 meters .

    Too bad the strobe is gone though :/

    Oh, btw, your 6th picture ays it's a LF2XT... That's actually a LF3XT.

    I don't get why people are complaining about the light being long... it' going to be longer than average with the selector ring. That's a given.

    Can anyone speculate if the tailswitch from another Jetbeam light will fit the RRT-0? This one looks too fat compared to the others they have. I don't care if I lose the tailstand ability.

    This one looks really nice!

    Do any of the JETBeam owners have experience/comments on the reliability of the Raptor series (especially the selector ring, etc.)?

    If only reliability was considered, which one would you guys recommend: the RRT-0 or the Surefire E1B?

    Thanks and sorry for the n00b questions.
