BEST 2x AA Flashlight - Nitecore MT22A

The latest 2x AA Flashlight in my pocket at all time, with proof, is the Nitecore MT22A. This little guy is ALWAYS in my pocket from now on!  What's the deal with this and why it is so good?  First of all, as an emergency tool, it is compact in size and you have 180 hours of light to use, isn't that crazy?  All you need is 2x AA battery, and of course we know that we should only use Eneloop PRO AA (rechargeable NiMH). The light itself is light weight, waterproof, and smallest size for this kind of flashlight. Usually, a 2x AA light is long and bulky with the tube style, and they don't fit in most pockets. This light will fight my jacket's chest pocket, which shows you why it is so good already. The plastic body is not "cheap" but sturdy and strong built. I cannot say enough good things about this light, read, watch and buy one!

Max at 260 lumens - runs for over 2.25 hours, insane!

Here goes the light, it looks very simple, but is very practical and useful.  Trust me, this is not a cheapo light at all.
The head is metal and the body is plastic. I like the yellow color which actually do react to my UV light nicely in the dark!
One button operation, waterproof and you can put a landyard loop there if you like.
Look at the grip, it's so comfortable and just the right size for your palm!  Lovely!  I also find that this light does not get hot much!  

The metal / steel button there is the release button for the head, which you need to take off to put in your 2 batteries. I thought that was the mode switch at first place!
Look at that pretty electronics inside!
Here goes my 2x Eneloops! 
When you take it out, you can see the springs inside and they really made the design to the most simplistic and minimal form. I love how simple it is, and how they utilize the space!
A clip on this side, but i wish the clip can be rotatable, yet it is not. So I cannot use this light as a cap light, but it is more meant for clipping to pockets and such.
Here goes the Nitecore MT22A on turbo, 260 lumens with some good throw power. I have to say that as a 2x AA light, this light is very amazing with the amount of light it can produce along with the runtime for the turbo and the lowest mode. It's a true survival light, a must have for EDC and emergency kit!

Nitecore TM03 - 2800 Lumens Single 18650 Flashlight for Defense

The Nitecore TM03 is one of the high power EDC self defense flashlight that I have been long waited to try, but too bad they did not come out with a proper holster yet, so the combo is really not complete here. The light itself is great, but not the best so far.  If I have to choose between this and the Klarus XT11GT, I will vote of the klarus because of the USB charging feature and the fact that I have a proper holster for the light with quick deployment setup. This light is missing a USB port and a nice holster, period. But, if you do not mind that, feel free to grab one!  2800 Lumens, instant strobe button, and super tough body which can withstand any abuse you can imagine.  You think a surefire is tough?  maybe this is over-tough.

The first thing you noticed is, 2800 Lumens of FLOOD and not throw. Therefore, it is not meant for a blinding purpose, but more of a flood light, for illumination. I did tried to be blinded by this and it does the job well too, just that I would much not be preferred to be blinded by a focused beam on the face or the eyes.
This is the typical "strobe" ready setup for Nitecore, just like how the klarus also does their light. Very simple. You press the lever for strobe or instant turbo depending on your light's setup, and you can also use it for mode changing once the light is turned on by pressing the main button.
The body is anti-roll and you can see the fins and everything is just typical nitecore quality, meaning - WELL BUILT and tough.
The other side... not sure if you come from cheapo flashlight background, but the crappy "CREE": or ultrafire crap really does not give you this kind of coating on the body and it feels VERY different touching a good light versus a crappy cheap light.
I do like the stainless steel bezel here, it is very useful for a defense light. The Nitecore P80UV or P80 is also meant to be a fighting light, but they forgot to put this bezel on the light, making it a big problem when it comes to smashing and crashing fights.  However, the P80 got its own holster, and this TM03 doesn't...?! WTF nitecore?!
To be honest, the light is kind of on the long and heavy side, but that is for a good purpose if you do use it for fighting and defense.
Here goes the legendary Nitecore TM03 body tube. You can try to shoot it with a 12ga slug and it won't penetrate, LOL!  Why do you need the wall to be that thick?  I don't understand but I love it.
The threads are well cut, and you see the double thick red orings there? Wow!  They made it as if this light is going to explode or something, so they need to make sure everything stays inside and not come out!    The light is crazy, it feels like science fiction flashlight specs.
Gold plated spring, thick spring...!  
So here is the IMR18650 from Nitecore, and it is labelled "For TM03" only, while they do not give you the USB charging feature on the light, how weird. 
By luck, here i snapped a shot inside the tube and you can see the inside wall is actually polished!
Very special setup on the front end with the "flaps" springs protecting the board. This is one very special setup, and i think it is supposed to protect the board when you smash things with the light.
The Nitecore TM03 is a good flashlight, but it is not complete. At the mean while, they are lacking a USB port, a moonlight mode, and a good holster, in order to call this a "great" light.

Frmo the left - Nitecore P80UV, Lumintop TD15S, Nitecore TM03, Klarus XT11GT.  I do like the Klarus much more if I am going to recommend someone new to tactical lights for defense.  The Nitecore TM03 is powerful, but if you wait a year or so, there could be another light that is smaller, with the USB port, and it will output 3800 lumens instead of 2800, with just one 18650.  Who knows?!  Technology for flashlight is flying like rockets these days!

HaikeLite HT35 - Seriously Powerful Zoomable Flashlight

The HaikeLite HT35 is a 2300 lumens(max) flashlight with zoom feature, running on 2x 26650 batteries, with 3 modes and a super heavy duty construction body. It's simply a budget thrower flashlight, and you can expect to beam out to about 700m or more with this beast. I can compare to those 1km throw lights such as the Thrunite TN42 and Nitecore TM16GT etc. The difference is the price tag on the light, and zoom instead of non-zoomable. Personally I do not like zoom myself, but this one is one of a kind, and it does have a nice quality, heavy glass lens!

First thing to look at is the heavy and coated glass lens. Unlike the cheapo flashlights on ebay and such that claims to be zoomable, this one is really well made and is really tough build. 

The "ring" part of the light cannot be removed, and the tailcap cannot be tail-standed, yet the switch is simple to operate. Just bump it for the next mode, and the light always start on highest mode.

There is also a hole for the tripod stand, and it originally comes with a little attachment for the strap to hang onto, which I don't find it useful but clumsy instead.

The size of the light is not bad, just like a Convoy L6, not too big. 

Lots of fins for heat to vent out, and the light really does not get hot much in real use.

That is the haikelite ht35 when extended or zoom out all the way.

That is the light when zoom'd back all the way.

When you zoom all the way back in, you can see the LED in the center but there is no reflector of any sorts, but just the lens doing all the magical work on its own.

There is a thick red o-ring on the thread. Good threads btw, very smooth! As you can see here, the body of this light is very thick too, sort of remind me of the Nitecore TM03

There goes the tailcap, and surprise that there is no gold plated spring.
I have put 2x Liltokala 26650 in it, but you can put any 26650 you like, or even 2x 18650 too.

With some luck, I got a nice shot of the board inside, and the nice thick spring in the center. 

here is the Haikelite HT35 zoom'd out.

Haikelite HT35 zoom'd in.

You can unscrew the head off like this and the lens is actually sealed with the body, by a nicely lubed o-ring under the lens.

I really love the heavy lens!

You can see the seals in the head now, and yes it is air and water proof inside, unlike the crappy zoomies from ebay and "cree" brand crap.

Here you can see the Haikelite HT35 and the Haikelite MT03 together side by side. Gearbest's picture shows the HT35 a bit shorter, or even looking like a normal tactical light size. Here let me tell ya, it's big and long, it's definitely not an EDC light fory ou to carry around, but it is useful if you go on a trip that needs a thrower to spot things from far away. The Haikelite MT03 is a flood king, while this HT35 is a throw king, both insanely powerful with a low price tag. I strongly recommend you to try it out when the coupon and discount codes are still working!

Imalent DN70 - Only $58 for a 3800 Lumen Compact Flashlight

Imalent DN70 is a crazy flashlight at this price range. It outputs max of 3800 lumens, comes with a nice 4000mah 26650 battery, and is USB rechargeable, that means it is a full package that is ready to play when you get the box!  Great gift idea!  You will shock all your friends with this flashlight, it's really crazy bright for this kind of size, and it is comparable to the Convoy L6 at 3800 lumens too, just with less flood i guess. I would have to say, that this is the best compact flashlight I have seen in 2017 out of all the other small size monsters. Even my Klarus G20 got to step asde and bow to this Imalent DN70 lol!
Imalent DN70 $57.99 - CODE- 45kafc 

Here is the LED and the nice orange peel reflector, giving you a lot of flood but also throw. Weird enough, this light throws very well, even better than the Klarus G20 and such. I am shocked!

The back is very unique, because it is blue in color but dos not have anything special inside!  I thought it's magnetic or there is supposed to be a bunny popping out when I unscrew the blue part. Turns out it's just a design, with nothing special but color...

 The light is sexy looking and the two rubber button is very easy to find in the dark.  You can also see that the center is an OLED screen that shows you the voltage and the lumen / mode too. I have to say that this light does get hot when you use it on the turbo mode for a while, but its normal I guess. What doesn't get hot when its outputting so much light?

The other side is the USB charging port, which is protected by the rubber cover. I do have to tell you that this rubber cover can pop out by accident if you pull to hard. Don't be too aggressive with it when pulling it out.
The size is just right for my hand and it is pocket friendly!  Bright, powerful, and compact size, the perfect combo for 2017 flashlight trend?
Can you spot the 3800 lumens word in the O LED?

When opens up, here goes the included 26650 battery, 4500 mah, pretty good!  Notice that the battery is a flat top. My klarus G20's battery cannot fit in this light, because of the extra height on the button top part. Ooops!
Look at the spring inside, pretty beefy looking right?  I would have to say that these Imalent lights do have some nice looking internals.
When the battery is in, that's how it looks, very nice picture showing you the flat top part.

You can see my klarus G20 beside the Imalent DN70, and it is a big contrast isn't it?  My Klarus G20 keeps on screaming at this moment because it is too long and bulky, he wants to slim down to win the competition. LOL!
