    Which light are you referring to?
    You can look up the dimensions on the manufacturers websites.

    I recently got a Karis One titanium. Twist on-off, 8/130 lumens, 10180 battery powered and can be recharged in the flashlight. 1.75 inches, 0.56 ounces, $40. So far I am very impressed. This is replacing a Veleno that I lost

    I’m really liking the Tiki LE. Great tint, nice moonlight, very usable red and blue secondary LED and a solid switch action.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I think the deal breaker for me would be the problem I have with most side switch keychain lights....does the Tiki turn on in your pocket?

    I've just ordered a Rovyvon Aurora A1 with a Nichia emitter to replace my Mecharmy illumineX 4.

    Not yet, it has a pretty stiff switch. I’ve been carrying it in my fifth pocket.

    I may have to consider that one. Looks good for the price.

    I have a TUP but the bulkiness and LED screen make it better suited for the pocket, IMO.

    Just recently I picked up a cheap AAA/10440 clicky from Amazon. It's not bad, but AAA is just a tad too tall for my keys.

    I'm considering the Acebeam M50 but the Tiki and the Rovyvon offerings look interesting too.

    didn't you just buy one?
    are you having second thoughts about it?

    I've heard that the i1r (original) is slightly better but the head isn't captured so you can lose it. Runtime is fairly low so keep that in mind. Good for quick uses like finding a keyhole. I would recommend the i3e and use Eneloops. They're $10 shipped on Amazon. I had a bunch of them years ago and switched to the Nitecore TIP for the last few years but thinking of switching back. The i3e is smaller than the ones I had before (and cheaper). Single mode is much better, IMO.

    Aptly named Nitecore TINI.

    I'm sure I'll be stoned or pilloried, but I think "keychain light" is a bogus concept. You can't see how to put your key in the lock after dark when the light is attached to your keys. If you need a light in a hurry, you don't need to fumble around in your pocket, then pull out a wad of keys, find the light, etc....

    Carry it clipped in a pocket & you can grab it quickly...no fumbling or trying to separate it from keys.

    I just swapped to an i1r2 in desert tan. I have it on an s-biner so I can remove it from my keychain.
