That way you can have our moonlight at startup (double click) if you like. Then again, the RovyVon costs twice as much as this Nitecore TIKI. A site for things that interest a flashlight fan! Similarly a runtime on Medium. I’ve got the Aurora 24Ti and A4Ti, both are great. And if you’re the CRX I know from all over the forums, I hope you get one of these lights and work your magic on it. I don’t have experience with it, but have been thinking of getting the Lumintop EDC01. For me the UV is just a cool novelty to supercharge the GITD. The other option is the 1g pocket clip, which friction fits around the body (middle) of the light. Have you explored the reprogramming of this light? Love the side lights, especially the blue/uv. Here’s a link to a relevantly filtered page on parametrek.com. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. It’s a clicky indicating side e-switch. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Have you explored the reprogramming of this light? It’s bright, seems brighter than the A5, and seems to drop off less and less fast. There’s a glut of 10180 lights I could mention here. Charging of the small cell proceeds at around 350mA. The reply was that is was possible to reprogram it but that the warranty would be voided. The clip is very useful on a ball cap. And the light can’t be disassembled, so it’s not easy to change the LED (I won’t say it’s impossible.) It’s impossible to know because Rovyvon did update some of them. The clip lives best on the side of the light without the switch, but it can be fitted on either. Am I making a mistake for not going for the A7X? Or, under that perspective, an Emisar D4 in 18350 tube would almost be a better option…. FW3A (18350) This cover is easy to take out but doesn’t just fall out easily on its own. Acebeam TK16 (16340) (I would love to see a lower option for the side.). This mode also has a stepdown, starting at about 275 lumens, and settling in at around 75. Press J to jump to the feed. A LiPo may last 300 to 500 cycles, depending on how it is cared for.”. Your light will likely ship with this mode set to High! That’s much too cool for my tasted. I’d love to see this one with Nichia. There are two positions, and the clip will fit in either orientation in both positions. There’s a single side switch for operating the Aurora A5. I’d hoped to get a sampling of various iterations, but in the end RovyVon agreed to send the GITD version, the Aurora A5. Seen below is the pouch cell. I reset the runtime at about 6 minutes, and near-high output was achieved again. Not sure what size you are willing to consider as a keychain light. It’s basically just a scaled up version, though. I find myself using my zerbralight all the time on moonlight mode. Great for hiking, though! ), Four emitters, and an effective lantern mode. If you purchase this light on RovyVon’s official site, you may use the coupon code zeroair for 10% off! The RovyVon lights have been popping up over and over, so I reached out to RovyVon on amazon about some review units. But in case you need it for short bursts, instant illumination for short periods, any of the above will suit you. It's slightly larger, but this thing is more powerful than most of my EDC. Namely that double clicking to turn the light on steady does not go to moonlight as we wish, but goes to Medium (consistently, though). RovyVon sent over an updated A3 light – the A3x. I should have listened to what you said though and stayed away from the XP-G3. You’re welcome! I use that site a lot! The aluminum body lights here go for $32.95, and the stainless options are a little more expensive at $39.95. Actually I’m in discussions with RovyVon about getting a stock version with Nichia! Bigger than the original yes, but still perfect for a keychain. The aluminum looks to be available in gunmetal (seen here) and red (as an option, but no photos if it yet). The output is stunning. Length: 57.3mm GITD is cool (A5/7/x), blue sounds nicer (A7/x), I prefer the smaller size of previous gen over the larger battery capacity of the new X gen (A7). The runtime for high and medium follow. I was not paid to write this review. The side emitters are of course, all spill. Green is a brighter glow than blue. What can I say about the TIKI LE that I haven't already said about the RovyVon Aurora series. I second the RovyVon flashlights recommedation. But to be fair the smaller in the photo below is a different cell (10180) and none of these have secondary emitters. What about the nitecore tip se, any good? The end of the light has a nice bit of branding, with the tiniest font known to man. Charging looks great, and reliable. I purchased the A2 and A3 upgraded via Amazon, so only got the XP-G3. Also this is the lanyard attachment point (and a lanyard is included). This is as much a new light as it is an update, but addresses issues raised from the initial release. Not just this light, but from your whole order on the site! I can’t find documentation on what these are, but it looks like they’re just about as cool as the main emitter. Actually I’m in discussions with RovyVon about getting a stock version with Nichia! I was actually looking at their line-up seeing if I could justify getting more one or two of those smaller lights. Thanks ye looking a bit pricy but ngl that’s one hell of a pocket rocket! In general this updated series probably feels at least a little better built than the originals. One change is that the body now has only one clip attachment point – probably good for those of us already on the edge of analysis paralysis with daily life decisions. Does anyone know if the plastic Rovyvon (A1X) is good? Granted the moonlight mode does flicker on the original but it’s not horrid (unless you’re moving or watching movement) and I don’t use it on that setting much anyway. Although small, I wouldn’t consider it a keychain light. There are two of these, and they provide a nice diffuse beam. I like XP-G3, but there are plenty that prefer Nichia 219. I compare everything to the Killzone 219b BLF-348, because it’s inexpensive and has the best tint! It was somewhat possible with the old series, but the bezel is glued down. The A1X looks really cool. It’s possible to see the seam for the bezel, below, but mine didn’t budge. I can’t put my finger on why, but it just feels a shade more sturdy. They’re quite receptive!! Very informative review. Please consider claims within 10% of what I measure to be perfectly reasonable (accurate, even). The reply was that is was possible to reprogram it but that the warranty would be voided. I’d hoped to get a sampling of various iterations, but in the end RovyVon agreed to send the GITD version, the Aurora A5. The red emitter is between the two white side emitters. How long is the expected battery life? So if your battery is 1300 mAh out of the box, it might drop to 75% of that (about 1000 mAh) after 200 charge/discharge cycles. Of course the tail end of the light is a receptacle for two of the accessories. UV is the most interesting one but warm white flood and the red is cool too. This is not replaceable, except by RovyVon. The EDC01 is much less brighter than any of the lights suggested before and OP wants a bright light! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed about getting a light from them.
