    That would be the LF2XT. Awesome light, but out of production for quite a while now.

    I can't speak for Antithetik, but I had the same problem with 2 exchanged lights and finally got a refund. I won't ever buy any Thrunite products after that experience. They had one chance to make a good first impression and blew it TWICE. YMMV

    No problems with mine, pulls out a heavy punch for its size. I am happy with it for the price...

    Jeff, I really like that flashlight. I've seen them sold occasionally on CPF.
    Are they pretty bright for their size?
    Does it that special electronic switch?

    Nothing special like the above, just my EDC gear lately.
    Cheers.

    Just out of curiosity, why does the Quantum get more pocket time? UI? QTC? ease of operation? I've been toying with the idea of a mini keychain light and I was curious.

    Good question. It is probably mostly the looks. I have been in love the design of the Quantum lights since I saw one for the first time here on EDCF. Also the Quantum simply feels like it has a higher quality. While there is nothing wrong from my perspective with the Spy or the fairy, I would say the difference is similar to good production knife compared to a custom knife. The QTC pill is rather a downside in my opinion because it needs to be replaced at some point while two modes are totally enough for the purpose of a keychain light.

    Definitely not a pocket rocket, but it has a beautiful neutral white (XP-E Q4) tint. You can get over 100 lumens with a 10440.

    The electronic switch has a very nice light touch.

    Build quality is outstanding!
