    A good few times I found my UltraTac K18 turned on by itself, as worn attached to my keychain, in an otherwise empty cargo pocket, and locked, obviously.

    Just to be clear, the Nitecore Tube, old or new version, has a *single* button. Other Nitecore keychain lights can have two.

    I dont know why this is so tough for you to accept?

    These simply do not lock out enough for me to carry.

    It is also hardly the end of the world for me,I have plenty of other lights that do not turn on while in my pockets.

    It is frustrating though to be sure,if the buttons were just covered or more recessed I think they would be OK maybe.

    Tube,Tip,Tup and Tini which I can not even find all perform the same way for me.

    Interesting how closely it resembles the Thrunite Neutron 2C.... or is it vice versa?

    Use it long and in good health!

    I'm not sure if the Neutron2C uses USB C charging. Does the 2C use the Luminus SST40 LED?

    I had a Zebralight SC52w (AA) for a few years and enjoyed it. The design is really great, so unusual. But, I didn't like the tint and anemic output. So I went with an SC64c LE and couldn't be happier. It's just a little wider in diameter, and while notably taller, it's a terrific trade-off for the power & duration of an 18650 lithium cell. And then of course, there's the wonderful tint of a Samsung LH351D emitter.

    I have no idea which LED it uses. It does have USB recharging...looks to be the same place on the body and about the same size as in your picture.

    Neutron is XP-L only. Standard Thrunite options (cool white or neutral).

    Sofirn is such an awesome budget brand.

    Well, I ended up adding another light to my keychain a couple weeks ago. Olight was having yet another one of their sales, and I had recently bought a pair of their i3T EOS lights from Amazon at a ridiculous sale price. I now keep on one my nightstand and one in the console of my daily driver. Matter of fact, we had a 19 hour power outage here last week and the i3T spent much of the evening clipped to a ball cap and set on 5 lumens. Worked great for walking around the house. Back to the keychain, Olight makes a little rechargeable light called the i1R2, a tiny twist switch light that can put out 150 lumens for 15 minutes or 5 lumens for 6 hours. They were free but $5 shipping. It is one cool little keychain light and comes with a nifty charging cord included. Normal selling price is in the $15-20 range. So now I have two keychain lights which comprise my EDC for flashlights unless hiking or camping.

    That OLIGHT i1R2 EOS is a nice little light. I have an i1R that has been on my car key chain for 3+ years. The anno has worn off a bit, but it works great. If I'm in a situation where my EDC is not in immediate reach but I have my car keys, I activate the OLIGHT. I keep it on with a claw clip for easy detachment. Super convenient and ample bright for most things. I've charged it about 3~4 times so far!

    The DC1 hasn’t left my pocket since I got it however many months ago. Great lil light and I haven’t looked at other lights since getting it.
