    Default What Should I Get To Replace My Fenix RC09?

    I have a Fenix RC09 and I do like it quite a bit. When it is on Turbo, with the claimed 550 lumens, it is great. It drops to high pretty quickly , with the claimed 150 lumens.

    If I get another single 16340 light, what would people here recommend? I would like to get one that puts out more than 150 lumens for more than a couple of minutes. Is that possible with any of the current 16340 lights available today?

    When I search Battery Junction for 1 x 16340, I get this. Would any of those be suitable replacements or are there some others, not listed here, that are worthy of consideration? How many more lumens would I need to even notice a difference?

    Would the Acebeam TK16-AL, Fenix E18R or the Fenix E16 be a suitable replacement?

    I find the 16340 sized light to work pretty well as a cap light.

    Definitely the Acebeam TK16.

    My other thought is to get a small 18350 light to use as a cap light. Battery Junction lists twelve of them. The ThruNite T1 looks pretty good and it looks like the 18350 battery has twice the capacity of the typical 16340 battery. (550 mAh vs 1100 mAh)

    Have you considered the Folomov EDC C2? I have one. I added cellophane tape to spread the beam a bit and it works quite nicely as a cap light. So does the aluminum EDC C1 and the aluminum Drop Tool AAA.

    I just received the purple Jetbeam Jet II Pro from BJ and itís a cool looking and capable 16340 light, once you familiarize yourself with the U.I..

    For $53.50 shipped itís a looker!
