    I guess after they released the AAA Ti3 which could do just the same output with a much smaller size they decided to step down. I ordered a ti3 in stainless. I was and still am impressed and thought this could replace the bigger t10. But T10's great clip and longer runtime and tailcklick and true mode memory are well worth the larger diameter The ti3 now sleeps in a backpack pouch as backup light. the T10 is still used daily..

    the ti3 is however the best ever flashlight if you need to check your newborn's sleep. the default moonlight is very low 0.05lm (half or even less of T10) and when it was off for more than a minute or so it always starts on low. perfect in picth black.

    else the ti3 is just as bright as the t10, albeit with less runtime ofcourse. awesome AAA light next to the bigger brother.

    just with any of my older AAA flashlights, like led lenser AFS or Olight i3s, the Thrunite ti3 clip was not too reliable and I also lost it. luckily I didn't lose the lights.

    the ti5 has a locked clip and has a tailswitch. so I would prefer that nowadays. but it wasnt released back when I bought the ti3, and the ti3 is amazing. I considered that ti5 light, but then I felt I did not need it when I still have a working ti3 which does the same job just without click.

    so I just bought a cheap chinese light with sturdiest looking clip-on clip to replace the lost one on the ti3 and and then had another light that I gifted to someone.. (replacement clip would be more expensive than a whole new AAA light with clip)

    btw, I was pretty impressed by the build-quality of a 2$ chinese AAA light of 2017 by the way. was a nice gift for non-flashlight people that just want on on high, med and strobe. I personally hate this UI, but still, decent very bright solid light. The clip alone was worth the money, and you get a solid light along with it.

    Just got a Fenix E01. I've carried Mini Mags for years, including my current factory LED version (and been converting them to LED since red LEDs were the only common option).
    The small size and long runtime is what sold me on the E01. It's my first Fenix.
