    Default *new* Klarus RS1A and RS16

    Found these on the Klarus website. Don't know how new they are, but couldn't find a thread about them.

    That RS1A looks like something I could recommend to non-flashaholics.

    I wonder which light people will like more jetbeam ddc10 or klarus rs 16 .

    Jetbeam : can tail stand and has a pin that you can screw in at the end , smaller then klarus , less lumens. But has a digital display which does not have much use .

    Klarus : larger light , more lumens , no digital display which is great but I dont like the magnetic charging port .

    It's all about what you get, for which price. I rather have a bigger light for less money.

    These are very nice looking lights.The pocket clip looks stable mounted.Only the size is little bigger for the type of the batteries that use these flashlights.
    There's no information about the UI and PWM.

    I take it back the jetbeam ddc10 does have a usefull display in can show battery status I just found out , but on the website it says working voltage: 2-3.2V if this is true then this particular light is a fail . I was hoping it would use a 16340 but it does not look like it does maybe later jetbeam will release an improved version .

    Default Nnew Klarus RS1A And RS16

    Well, I Was wondering about price. I found the Klarus RS1A $74.95 and the RS16 for $79.95 on Ebay. I sort of have a preference for Li-ion at this point. This very well may be a better choice than the Streamlight Strion for many people.

    I'm thinking that this would be a great light for the car. I already have a USB charger in the car for my cell phone and my bluetooth speakerphone.
    Current EDC: Eagletac D25C Clicky, Foursevens Mini-ML XP-G2. The rest of the collection: Fenix E15, Fenix LD20, Fenix TK41. Nitecore MT2A, Foursevens Quark Tactical QTA. EagleTac T20C2 Mark II, XM-L Neutral White, EagleTac SX25L3, ArmyTek Viking Pro . Oh - and a whole bunch of Eneloops, CR123As and 18650s.

    Those things look big

    Anyone verified that the internal charger follows a decent approximation of CC/CV with true termination? Until it's confirmed, I stay on the cautious side...

    Hello
    I have size comparison picture in my Klarus RS16 review.You can compare your lights to the flashlights in the picture(put them to the monitor).
    The charging circuit looks similar to this http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...charging-board

    For the RS1A, if I cannot recharge the included battery, can I pop in a regular alkaline during emergency?

    Old thread, but it looks like Klarus gave the RS16 a new look and update. Or they just forgot they already had a RS16
