    The only threads I see on flashlights that take 16340 batteries are older. Anyone have any newer modes they’re using that they’re happy with?

    I have a Jet-II MK and it’s a cool little light. Like most junkies, though, I want to get another one to try some different make/model in this category.

    Jetbeam put out a new RRT-01 that can use 16340 or 18350. I got mine from SkyLumen so I could have a different emitter put in it. The control ring goes from moonlight to 950 lumen. Although it can use an 18350, I use mine with a 16340 and do not notice any rattle.

    EagleTac also put out a MkII of their D25c which can use 16340s and higher output (800 lumen).

    I’m not sure how long it has been out but Olight now has a mini version of their S1 baton which is not much larger than a 16340 and that one can even be had with a HiCri emitter.

    Fenix is putting out the E16Ti which is an anodized titanium version of their E16 and I think the smallest 16340 light out there.

    Thanks for the tips! Going to do some searching for reviews and stuff and see what people think of them. I’ll let you know what I think I’ll like. If you know some good deals/online retailers and want to share I would be appreciative of that too. Thanks again!

    The Olight S1R II is great. If you’re looking for a 16340 it’s tough to beat IMO. Plus they have copper & titanium versions out right now. Good stuff. :)

    I’m about 90% sure I’ll buy it next week and about 10% sure something else will catch my fancy and 100% sure I do not need another flashlight LOL

    Does the FourSevens Mini Turbo Mk III count as 'newish'? :D

    Acebeam is about to release the TK16 which looks awesome. If it fit 18350s I'd be all over it.

    Lesser known brand On The Road has some interesting 16340 lights, M3, i3, U16 & M3 Pro.

    Not really crazy about anglehead lights. Maybe some day though.

    I have been carrying this one for a few weeks now and it is pretty interesting and also can be had with 123 cell battery.

    I've always liked the Rofis transformer design, but for some reason never got around to getting one...hmm.

    Thanks everyone. All great great options. I went with the S1R Baton II ...it’ll go with my Seeker 2 Pro and and I like the interfaces these lights have too.

    I mulled over options for a light like this for some time now. Klarus, Olight all have lights in this form factor. I did strongly consider the Fenix E16 as well.

    In the end I went with the Acebeam TK16. Hopefully it should be in my mailbox soon enough. I chose Acebeam for a few reasons; mostly to try something different. It has a tail switch instead of a side switch, triple LED, excellent moonlight mode, high lumen output etc.

    I waited forever to get a light with this battery configuration, so hopefully it turns out good.
