    It looks great, brighter and has additional features than former XT1C I reviewed before.

    Hmmm... far lower candlepower than the xt1c it's replacing, isn't it? That makes it a pass for me, alas.

    The XT1C 2018 uses different LED that generates different candlepower, but the output is much higher and up to 1000lumens. Meanwhile, it uses clicky switch for a better operation, and the length is longer that better to grip.

    Thanks klight, it's just a matter of usage, I'm looking for candlepower. I do see that for many people, the increased lumens is probably a plus (not sure anyone thinks "longer length" is an advantage, but ok). But for me, the drop in candlepower is pretty big -- what was the last one at, 10-12kcd? Maybe I'm mis-remembering, but it throws really nicely. Is the main switch still clicky-only, no momentary? If so, it's unsuitable for defensive/tactical usage IMO

    I am also wondering if the switch provides a momentary on function as well as a constant on function.

    I would love to see a limited edition copper version of this light!

    Yes, the primary switch has a momentary on function as well as a constant on function

    Thanks for the info klight. I bought one a few months ago and it is my second most favorite small light. The Klarus Mi7 is still my favorite (because it is just so easy to carry around), but this is a more versatile light.
