The Sunwayman T20C is an every day carry (EDC) light on steroids. Normal lights which are similar to the T20C don’t even come close in terms of output. The T20C uses the big CREE XM-L LED which pushes out 438 lumens on max brightness. That is close to 500 lumens coming from a light that is more than small enough to fit in your pocket. The T20C uses two CR123 lithium batteries which provide long run time while without making the light bigger and heavier. Having a light with this much output isn’t always necessary, but it is nice to know that you have it in case the need arises. I think lights like this will become fairly common in the future, but as of now the T20C is one of few with this kind of performance in this small of a package.
The JETBeam Jet III 3M XM-L (that’s a mouth full) is the definition of a pocket rocket. The Jet3 is a fairly small and very pocketable light. Most of the time small lights don’t have a whole lot of bragging rights when it comes to output, but the Jet3 is definitely an exception. Using two CR123 batteries and the new CREE XM-L LED this torch has a max output of 450 lumens, which is lot for a light of any size. If you need long run time and not a whole lot of light, the Jet3 has you covered there also. On the lowest setting it can run for up to 200 hours. The Jetbeam JetIII is the perfect light for anyone wanting a pocketable torch with a whole lot of output!
The ThruNite Scorpion v2 is a super high output flashlight which uses the new CREE XM-L LED. While the v2 version of the light is sold out now, we do still sell the regular Scorpion which also uses the XM-L emitter.
The Scorpion is an every day carry light that has the guts of a full blown search light. Using two CR123 batteries and the XM-L emitter the Scorpion x2 can put out a max of 750 lumens. While that is impressive in itself, the Scorpion v2 isn’t a one trick pony. The unique interface which the Scorpion uses is another reason these lights are so popular. Using a tail clicky and rotary switch the Scorpion v2 can ramp from the max output of 750 lumens all the way down to .1 lumens.
The Scorpion is a very popular light, so be on the look out for them on the site. Snag one when the chance presents itself!
The EagleTac P20A2 is the light for the people that want very high output with batteries that are easily replaceable.
The P20A2 is functionally the same as the popular P20C2, except for the fact that it utilizes 2 AA cells instead of CR123 lithium batteries. The AA cell is much cheaper and easier to find than the CR123, making it painless to replace when the time comes. The P20A2 uses the CREE XM-L LED which pushes out a max of 524 lumens on high. Output that high is hard to come by in a torch this small, not to mention at a price well under 100 dollars. This is definitely one of the most EDC friendly high output lights out there, all the while being easy on the pocket book. This one is very popular, so get it while you can!
The EagleTac P20C2 MkII XM-L is definitely one of the best values in the flashlight world right now. This P20C2 is also one of the brightest CR123^2 lights available today.
For well under 100 dollars you get the new CREE XM-L LED which pushes out 524 lumens. The light is powered by two CR123 lithium batteries which provide the highest energy density while still maintaining a small size. There isn’t a whole lot to say about the XM-L version of the P20C2. If you see the light in action then there isn’t a lot of convincing needed after that. The XM-L P20C2 is one of the smallest and brightest lights available today, plain and simple.

The Numyth Vulcan fire piston is one of the coolest ways on earth to make fire. Making fire from nothing is in itself pretty cool, but using the fire piston makes it that more interesting.
Fire pistons work in a similar fashion to diesel engines. A piston compresses air which in turn heats the air to the point of ignition. A fuel source such as char cloth is ignited by the super heated air in the cylinder. As long as you have a fuel source to ignite, a fire piston can be used indefinitely. The only thing needed to make fire is a fuel source; other than that a fire piston is self contained and reusable.
It may be a little confusing without actually seeing it in action, so check out the video below to see the magic of the Numyth Vulcan fire piston!
The most useful light in the world is the light that you have on you when the need arises. The Fenix E05 fits that bill perfectly with its small size and light weight.
The E05 is a small “key chain” light that puts out a max of 27 lumens. 27 lumens doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s plenty of light for most any task. The E05 uses the ubiquitous and thrifty AAA battery. No fear of running low on power with the E05 since the AAA cell is incredibly cheap and easy to find. The sum of all parts makes the Fenix E05 one of the best possible lights for every day carry. It is small enough to have on you every day which makes it a valuable piece of gear. Check out the video below to get a good idea of how this tiny light performs!
The Fenix TK41 is truly a unique piece in the world of high performance flashlights.
The TK41 is a very high output torch topping out at 800 lumens on max brightness. What makes the TK41 so unique is the hardware that it uses to give you those 800 lumens. The TK41 uses the new CREE XM-L LED, which is a larger emitter that allows a higher volume of light to be produced. Where the TK41 differs from most is in the power source. Instead of using lithium batteries such as the CR123, the TK41 utilizes the standard AA battery. Using the cheap and ubiquitous AA battery means that when it’s time to replace the batteries, you won’t have to hunt for expensive and sometimes hard to find lithium cells.
The Tk41 sets the bar for AA performance lights. It may hard to understand how a light can produce 800 lumens using the regular old AA cell, but we attached a video below for proof!
The Fenix Tk21 is a great every day carry light that has tons of output. Most EDC lights top out in the 200 lumen range, but the Tk21 has a max output of 468 lumens. Needless to say the TK21 does not have many competitors in its price range.
The Tk21 is similar to a lot of other lights in its class in that it uses 2 CR123 lithium batteries, or one 18650 rechargeable. What makes the TK21 special is that is has such high output in a relatively small and affordable package. Most torches which are similar in output to the Tk21 cost twice as much, and are normally larger also.
Fenix has a pretty unique line up of lights, and the Tk21 is no exception. Very few lights in the same price range can even come close to the Tk21, which makes it one of the more popular lights that we stock
The ThruNite Catapult v3 is a mega output torch with a neutral tint LED. The Catapult v3 still utilizes the CREE XM-L LED, but instead of having the normal cool tint that most LEDS have, this torch has a whiter tint which has more accurate color representation.
The neutral version has a little less output than the cool white version, but any version of the Catapult v3 will have a crazy amount of output. Unfortunately, ThruNite only made a limited number of these lights. Both the cool and neutral tint versions of the Catapult v3 are already sold out. While you can’t get this exact light anymore, we do stock many awesome ThruNite lights which you can choose from!
