    Lightbulb Can anyone list any recently released single 18350 sized lights?

    Recently I read an HKJ test/review of an 18350 with significantly better capacity than the currently available 16340's, so I decided to do a simple Google search for lights produced in the past year or 2 that run on a single 18350. I assumed it would be easy to find some recent lights that way, but for some reason the search was fruitless. I did find a thread in cpf, but it was from 2012. Technology has improved a lot since 2012.

    I've previously owned at least one CR123/16340 sized light, in which a CR123 or 16340 was a very loose fit, with at least 2mm of space to the side of the battery. So I'm sure that I've owned at least 1 18350 compatible light, but I just never owned any 18350s, because back in 2012-2013 when I would've bought it, there really wasn't any significant difference in capacity between 16340 & 18350 batteries. But FINALLY it seems that they've figured out that a cylinder that can hold slightly more than half the internal mass of an 18650, probably SHOULD be capable of storing more than just 1/5th it's capacity! **Seemed like such a no-brainer all along**

    It would be helpful to have a list of recently produced lights that will accept an 18350. If anyone knows of 18350 lights produced within the past 1-2 years, please post them. Thanks....

    Most of the players in this space are custom. 18350 is a favorite size if mine. Released these just yesterday:

    Like said from Overready there are magnificent offerings from them and other custom manufacturers. If you just search CPF for 18350 instead of google you’ll get a lot back

    Solely on the criteria of 18350 there are several OTC (over-the-counter) offerings include Emisar D1,D1S,D4
    Manker E14, E14 II
    Astrolux S41,42,43
    BLF GT MINI with tube
    ...and sunwayman, Jaxman, Tiablo, Armytek, Solarforce, and I’m sure more
    Nokoff is back!..and made in China

    Eagtac DX3b mini is extremely good.

    * Excellent tint
    * Very light-weight... just vanishes in the pocket.
    * Good UI
    * Good output - approximately 1800 lumens OTF.
    * Built-in charging.

    Only real negative is that the charging port cover comes off a bit too easily.
