    I have no doubt that I'll really like it. It looks awesome! It may be just a little bit too long for what I have planned for it. I will likely have to just get one to see for sure.

    email sent for Sapphire 25. I found I've been EDC'ing my Arc AAA LE (one of the ones from the very first limited edition run of the AAA) a lot recently when I don't want the bulk of the Haiku or SunDrop, and it's got the crimp ring problem and flickers and I've always intended to get a Sapphire, so now seems like the time! Looking forward to it! Should have gotten one years ago.

    Default First timer question

    I am new to this forum and was looking to purchase a key chain flashlight. I came across the McGizmo Sapphire and really like the design. I have a pretty basic question. There are many AAA flashlights on the market that produce greater lumens. What is the rationale for only producing 5 lumens?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Go to the McGizmo sub-forum and look for the "Sticky" thread - McGizmo: Available lights, Pricing and Ordering Info. Everything you need to know should be listed in that thread.

    I've never had the pleasure of ordering a McGizmo lights, but from what I've read, Don has the easiest and smoothest ordering process of all the custom light makers.

    Good luck and .


    Edit - Oops, Archimedes beat me to it. And yes, ordering info is also listed in first post of this thread.

    I found these tiny S-biners fit the sapphire perfectly.

    I don't see any numbers on it, they came with the KeyRack Locker. The size is perfect, the Sapphire rotates freely on it.

    EDIT: looks like the S-Biner Micro Lock, I'm ordering new ones because mine don't have the locking feature.

    EDIT2: Actually not sure if those will fit, may be too big...

    EDIT3 LOL: The size for the one I have is 0.5 S-biner.
