    You know it!

    Not as Trendy or as Spendy as the other ones but they work just as well for me.

    Just received this Lumintop EDC05 in the mail today. It will be replacing a very worn out and loved JetBeam.

    How would you say that the Manker compares to the ArmyTech?

    I have a few of the Manker lights, but I have been rather unimpressed with their switch design. It is prone to sticking.

    Aaa is 600 lumens and aa is 1000 lumens.

    Both good lights. I carry a 1xAAA light myself. I wear jeans almost every day until summer, so the AA is just too noticeable in my pocket-YMMV. I own the Lumintop Ti tool, but it's not my EDC, because the switch has accidentally activated a couple of times. My Thorfire has been durable and the interface is less-likely to accidentally activate. Had I known then that it would be discontinued, I would have bought more than one. Lesson learned the hard way...:(

    I take it that you are running Li-Ion cells in the lights?

    Just out of curiosity, how were you carrying the light? I have carried the same light for two or three years and never had an accidental activation while carrying in the pocket (which is what I typically do), but have had a few when carrying clipped to my pocket (such as when working around the house).

    I carry clipped in RF pants pocket for quick/easy access. I still have the light, but due to its predilection for accidentally engaging, I no longer EDC it. The Thorfire stainless TS07 is my daily go-to. As I mentioned, it's evidently discontinued, so I watch it carefully.

    This is what was recommended by the guy who modified these lights.

    Maglite Solitaire LED. Old reliable, I have 2 and they have never let me down. Sometimes it's a Fenix eo1 and I may even add a photon freedom to the rotation. I know there are more "hip" lights out there, but I've always gotten good service from the solitaire and eo1. The photon is the only other light to turn my head in 5 years.[​IMG]
