Greetings from /r/flashlight. I maintain an arbitrary list of popular lights that may be of interest.

You'll probably want something using the 18650 battery and onboard charging like the Thrunite Neutron 2C. I'd recommend the neutral white version of it.

Do not charge Li-ion batteries in freezing temperatures. You can use them, and there are even some 18650 cells designed to have better performance in the cold, but it is dangerous to attempt charging without first warming the battery above freezing.

Nitecore TIP CRI- <$30, small enough to comfortably have on a keychain, USB charging, very bright, high quality LED.

> Turbo: 240 Lumens / 30 min
> High: 95 Lumens / 1 hr 30 min
> Mid: 22 Lumens / 6 hr 30 min
> Low: 1 Lumens / 46 hr

Thrunite Neutron 2C v3 ~$50, much more powerful 18650 light with USB charging. The battery tube can be shortened to use 18350 batteries, which would bring the overall length to under 4". Be sure to get the Neutral White version. The following run times are for an 18650 battery, the run times for an 18350 battery will be less than half as long.

> Turbo: 1100 Lumens / 2.2 hrs
> High: 650 Lumens / 2.7 hrs
> Low: 12 Lumens / 130 hrs
> Firefly: 0.5 Lumens / 49 days.

So, right off the bat you've got two criteria that tend to start fights around here:

  • Starting fires is entertaining, but is extremely inefficient. You waste a huge amount of battery power to do it, and can only light certain materials like dark paper. It's a party trick, not a camping tool.

  • The best use of a flashlight for self defense is to make sure you don't trip while running away. The second best is holding the light in your off-hand while your gun is in your dominant hand. Other than that, if it's possible to disorient someone with light, just about any flashlight we like will be good enough.

    Ignoring those criteria, I'm going to suggest a Thrunite Neutron 2C. Click the button for on/off, push and hold to smoothly raise or lower brightness. Includes a good-quality 18650 and charges on USB.

    And grab a BIC lighter for your fires. If you want something fancier, get a Zippo and a butane insert that won't dry out every three days.

You are basically in for the entire forum to show up and try to talk you out of the zoom lens. They really don't get much in the way of love around here. Most of the lights you'll see recommended (and the A6 in particular, which is a really incredible light) have a balanced mixture of flood and throw. There is a central hot spot that throws a significant distance, surrounded by a spill of light that neatly floods out, it basically encompasses the whole range of zoom. If you need a dedicated thrower, get one of those, or a dedicated flooder, get one of those. A zoomie basically tries to do both, and sucks at everything. Additionally, there really isn't a good way to waterproof one, so they tend to be far less robust than most of the other lights on the market, as well as being far less efficient in the amount of light that they actually put out. The BLF A6 would be a great option, as would a Wowtac A1s, which comes with a battery so it's ready to go. Spending a bit more a Thrunite Neutron 2C is another great choice.

If you absolutely, positively, no buts about it think that all of these nerds who spend an utterly absurd amount of time on the subject of flashlights couldn't possibly be right, and you, come hell or high water, are going to be ordering a zoomie no matter what we tell you, the Wowtac A3s sucks considerably less than the one you have.

"Nah, they totally meant I should just post that exactly rather than giving a brief descriptive title about what specific uses or key requirements I have. "

:P :P

Anyway, perhaps you'd like this one, the thrunite 2c then, if it's /got/ to be amazon. It's not really as good, but it does apparently have a kind of similar UI for the middle brightnesses.

u/dcabines · 7 pointsr/onebag

The suggestions here are great and OP has probably picked one, but I wanted to share an alternative for anyone else that may be looking. I really enjoy my $15 Xtar PB2 paired with two 2500mah 18650 batteries. You can get the batteries for just under $4 each. This way you get lots of capacity and you can swap out batteries and it still costs less than the typical powerbank of that capacity. Also some devices use the batteries directly like this flashlight.

u/Handsome_Zack · 6 pointsr/flashlight

My eternal suggestion for these types posts is the WowTac A1S, which has the advantages of both being cheap and including a micro-USB rechargable 18650 battery of decent quality. Simple on/off from the tail switch, and then there is a side switch to change modes (my dad has never quite figured how reverse-clicky switches work).

However, the low mode is pretty high at 24 lumens and a moonlight mode might serve your purpose better, at which point there are two nicer lights that I would put forward - the Thrunite Neutron 2C V3 or TN12. The Neutron is an e-switch only light that is controlled via one button and has shortcuts to both low and high. The TN12 is a nicer version of the aforementioned A1S with a nicer driver and a lower low mode, but as far as I can tell it does not come with a battery.

There are also a few AA/14500 size lights that you might be interested in, like the Sofirn SC31 or Wuben E05 (The SC31 is 18650... Still a viable option but way bigger than I thought).

Hope this helps!

u/boomermax · 6 pointsr/flashlight

You will want a flashlight with an electronic side switch to operate. They do not require much strength to turn on and cycle through modes.

Something like the [Thrunite Neutron] ( would be my suggestion if it fits within your budget. You get the light, a battery and the ability to charge without having to purchase a separate charger.

With that said, you might not want to fumble with usb cables. If you are like my daddy was he got to a point that something like opening the charge port and plugging in the cable became challenging as well.

If that is your case I would suggest looking at this that can function with AA primaries. It can also take the higher powered 14500 that you do have to charge but if your condition progresses to the point that becomes burdensome you can still use the light with regular AA's

u/qwelm · 5 pointsr/flashlight

That ThruNite Neutron 2C looks like a contender. Thanks for the lead, and thanks for confirming I'll want a warm light.

u/bmengineer · 4 pointsr/flashlight

The most common type of battery used in high end flashlights is an 18650. It's not much larger than an AA light, but you can get a lot more power and batter life out of it.

Just as an example you can get the ThruNite Neutron 2C on Amazon within your budget. It will be much brighter, more water resistant, and last longer than the maglite you were looking at, and it includes a battery and a charger.

u/OneleggedPeter · 4 pointsr/flashlight

I am one that uses a flashlight a lot. I don't have a dozen different lights in my collection, I have 2. Those two are very similar, but there are a couple of differences.
The Thrunite Neutron 2C V3. I like this light a lot. It's my "use it 10+ times a day" light. It runs off of 1x 18650 cell (battery), 2xCR123, or a couple of other options. It has built in USB charging, it comes with a 18650 cell, it has adjustable brightness (ramping), and goes from .5 lm to 1040 lm. This thing is bright! Or dim, whichever you want. It just feels good.
My only 2 gigs against it: It takes a while to get used to finding the flat side switch in the dark. I no longer have any problem locating it, but when I first got it, it was a bit challenging. Second gig is that the lens is not replaceable. The lens being broken on mine has not affected the operation in the least, but I would like to replace it. Thrunite says that it's glued in and is not replaceable. ~$50 USD

My other light is a Thorfire TK18. It's pretty similar to the Neutron, but it has a tail switch. It does NOT come with a battery. It does not have On-board USB (or any other) charging, which means that you would need to buy cells and at least one charger. It feels ok in my hand, but I prefer the feel of the Neutron.
It is also adjustable brightness, but also has a Low/Med/High/Turbo mode which I prefer on this light. ~$29 + cell & charger.

Avoid those Atomic lights and their clones.

I initially thought I would go for the Olight S2R Baton, but after a bit more research, I’d have to say I’m leaning towards the Thrunite Neutron 2C V3 NW. Thanks!

These would be my two options if I were looking. The neutron looks to be the most simple, has the good charging option, and what I would buy someone with the same requirements. Happy hunting

u/rikuvomoto · 1 pointr/EDC

Buy once cry once or get your feet wet?

I would recommend thrunite neutron with an 18350 battery. That is one of the best EDC lights I stand by.

Awesome idea! I just discovered this sub last week after seeing someone on twitter praising its top memes, and having two Streamlight Stylus Pros both very recently die on me (maybe it was the alkalines?). I'm itching to move from 2xAAA to 18650's and I think here would be a nice place to start.

I think I’d go Manker U11 NW but it’s sold out at amazon. I guess my second choice would be the Thrunite neutron 2C NW.

u/cooperred · 1 pointr/flashlight
u/dubyrunning · 1 pointr/flashlight

Do you mean put the whole light in/on some kind of charging cradle? Those are available, but you'd be limiting your options greatly.

USB charging is more common. There are a number of great lights that'd meet your requirements that have USB or magnetic charging, so you plug a charging cable to the light. Again, your options will be more limited than if you were okay with removing the battery and charging it in a charger, but you'd have more options than if you require a cradle.

For a light with built-in charging you can buy on Amazon, and considering you can probably fit a 1x 18650 light in your shorts pretty easily, I'd recommend the Thrunite Neutron 2C Neutral White. Up to 1,100 lumens with useful lower modes and smooth brightness ramping.

EDIT: Although, the Neutron 2C is closer to 5 inches long than 4. If you want something really small (3.64" by 1") and high quality, you should take a look at the BLF FW3A (not on Amazon and not USB-rechargeable though).
