    I’ve always bought these for ~$5 on eBay and they’ve a lasted years, warranty wise I would just buy another but never had an issue-Just lost it after 2 years.

      These new China-made torches (such as Lumintop, Emisar/Noctigon, Sofirn, etc.) are leagues ahead of the generic brands you find on eBay, and even better than some of big brands you see in brick and mortar stores such as Led Lenser. If you want to go down the rabbit hole, check out https://www.reddit.com/r/flashlight/ and https://budgetlightforum.com/.

        Don't do it - I just wanted one good torch and I've bought 18 so far. twitch (this is a great one though - I was deciding between this and the EDC18, this is much better… I ended up with both :-|)

          I got the GT nano for shits and giggles. Fits in the mini pocket in most pants.

              @sickburn: Hmm I didn't know that was a term or thing. Really tempting but so pricey.

              I've already got the gt mini too but have been tempted to expand the collection. Got a d4v2 too.

                US$170 for a LEP light that throws over 2.6km!

                And yep, I use a D4V2 with 18350 tube as my bedside emergency light.

                •  

                  @sickburn: Tempting. I was looking at the thor2. I'll have at that link too.

                  D4V2 is my bedside light too but with a diffuser. I swear it's not as bright as it originally was though.

      I actually buy them from AliExpress. Cheap and plenty bright for what I need and if I lose it(which I do) just buy another. Probably will invest in a proper one like this one day.
      Batteries are the issue now that you can't buy from overseas with cheap postage.

      Not this one you didn't - i think you're referring to the Sipik sk68 clones that use AA batteries and put out 100-200 lumens.

    had one of these since the original group buy, smashed some nichia 219b in it, still my favourite torch. everytime these deals pop up im tempted to buy another.

      Was tempted to get a purple Toykeeper variant but held off after hearing some horror stories.

    Hard to imagine holding a 2800 lumen torch this small without burning your hand

      You only need it that bright for a few seconds while you show your friends. Then you can go down to 600lm or so and it’s just pleasantly warm

    The listing keeps saying that this includes the battery. Weird that I trust the ozbargain post more than I trust the listing’s own claims

    •  

      thanks. Sorry I listed this one quickly as it's a lightniing deal which is time limited and didnt pick on that key point. According to the listing a battery is included which makes it an even better deal. Sorry for my error

    Which battery charger is everyone using for the 18650?

    • +1 vote

      I've had multiple brands and models over the years, but the one I've used most is the Xtar VC4

      Cheers!
      Appreciate the advice!!

    How do these compare to Sofirn?

    •  

      Quality wise I think they're on par, I've only had a problem with one Lumintop (EDC18 rubber button not working properly) and haven't had an issue with any of my Sofirns (SP36, LT1, SC31 Pro, SP40 and SD05… yes, I have a torch problem).

          Received mine and loving it. (sorry OP, this model is better). First time buying a torch over $10 but this is a phenomenal product. It's so blindingly bright. Loves the tail magnet, switchable clip, lanyard and the glow in the dark diffuser. Might consider purchasing another one.

          •  

            @Yummy: Mine arrived yesterday too and it's very impressive. Certainly not my first torch (wife just rolls her eyes now when a new one turns up), love the ramping rather than clicking through levels and nice even beam. Totally forgot about the tail magnet until I read your comment…just keeps getting better!

        •  

          Love my EDC18. It was my first all-copper light!

  •  

    I've had a Led Lenser T7 for a few years now and it looks like it has max output of 175 lumens and I find it's pretty bright.

    Is this Lumintop FW3A actually 2800 lumens? Am I comparing that right? That means this torch would be 16 times brighter?? If so torches must have really come a long way over the last few years.

      The F3A in the OP would most likely achieve around 2,800 lumen or thereabouts for a short period. I dont have one but should achieve around 2,800 for 10-20 seconds then dips to possibly 1,000 lumen. This is a lot more light than the Led Lenser you mention. I've got a (https://lumintop.com/product/fw21pro/) which in theory produces up to 10,000 Lumen in turo mode. It may not peak at this figure but it would be close, again for a short period.

        Thanks for taking the time to reply - that is absolutely phenomenal.

      I don't remember the exact function but lumens and perceived brightness is non linear. It won't look 16 times brighter to the eye but it certainly is 16 times more output.
