How does this compare to more well known brands in the flashlight world like Fenix, Streamlight, Olight, etc.?

I use the Pelican 2360 and 2690 at work every day since i work the night shift at a locomotive repair shop and from my experience here and the military, anything made by pelican is pricey but great quality. We get our headlamps and flashlights issued to us and I've never seen anyone have their light fail. I'm probably gonna buy this one to have around the house

I have this light and 4 olights. In form and function, this pelican is most like my olight 13t; which is my edc toolbelt light. The similarities are: 1xAAA powered, tail button, momentary on with push til it clicks to stay on, hi and low modes.

The olight 13t is my edc toolbelt light and replaced the pelican 1910b. The key differences are:

1. When cycling through the modes, the 13t goes to Low mode before High mode. The Pelican goes to High mode before Low mode.

2. The 13t has a larger brightness difference between Low mode and High Mode. The pelican sometimes feels as if it has only 1 mode.. The Olight however, has a very usable 5 lumens which for close work and night work is not blinding. Today, for instance, I was able to sight down a 1/4" pilot hole to determine the composition of a wall.

3. CRI - the color of the olight is published 70 CRI, but to my eyes (and I used to do some photo work), it functions more like lights that are 80 CRI. That might be because of where those colors are in the spectrum, but in general, it's easier for me to distinguish colors and details, even on the 5 lumen setting. Sometimes the Pelican feels like it can't get bright enough, and it's because the colors reproduction is lacking.

4. The Olight has a two direction clip; the Pelican has a single direction clip - spring retention is good on both, but the pelican does feel like the pen clip that will eventually stress and break while the Olight clip has a little more depth and spring.

5. In my use, I get longer runtime from my Olight, and it also continues to run until the brightness eventually diminishes. On the other hand, with the Pelican, when the battery starts to get a little low, the light glitches - the switch will function intermittently, not turning on until I've let it rest or I put fresh batteries. I've experienced this 5-6x, both with disposable and rechargeable batteries. I almost sent the Pelican back for switch problems. Because of the nature of using a low-lumen light with a momentary half-press button, I'm often flashing it on and off to peer at things in dark corners. It becomes very frustrating when suddenly the light stops working, even though the battery may have 20% charge. When a battery is done in my Pelican, I can often throw it in another light and keep going, but not when I'm at work and it's my only light.

6. The Pelican has smoother threads, which seems impossible since the Olight has very good clean threads, but the Pelican's are buttery smooth. I almost never open the 1910b without closing and opening it a couple more times. It's that remarkable.

7. The Pelican tail-switch button takes less pressure to actuate. Imo, it's got the perfect amount of resistance to go from a half depress to full click. This makes it function easily whether using the thumb or forefinger. The Olight has a stiffer response which made me to change my grip to thumb-only for momentary use.

A final note and very much my opinion: the Pelican is a near miss - so good that it's short-comings make it somewhat disappointing every time I use it. I originally paid the somewhat premium Pelican price because I didn't want to delve into becoming a flashlight guy with 10-50 flashlights to get a good one. There are many good options out there, but if I knew then what I know now, I'd get this instead and be done with it:

But probably not. Cheers.

I have a couple of knock-off metal body flashlights that I got via sd over the years. One is USB charged, and I *really* like that feature.
Can any flashlight nerd/aficionado recommend a smallish USB light that is a step up, a quality unit which will last me? thanks

Regarding the Olight, who wants a 21 min battery life? That's what happens when they make it 180 lumens on a single AAA.

Thanks to Blocky for the great information and many compelling reasons to spend $5 more for the Olight. For me, I think the cheaper Pelican would be sufficient, but you probably can't go too far wrong with either choice.

I'm sure it's very user dependent, but I imagine that not a lot of people use these tiny lights for extended constant-on activities, so the Olight's 21 minutes of battery life may be plenty for those using a light to momentarily illuminate whatever it is they need it for.

Pelican has been making lights for a lot longer than those other brands have been around, fyi.

Good to know. I know them from making awesome camera and gun cases. Never saw their lights though.

Here are two USB-charged very small, *keychain* lights:

1) OLight I1R EOS. About $20. Up to 130 Lumens.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07CT423H2/

2) Nitecore Tube. $9-10. Tiny. Up to 45 Lumens.

There are plenty others, especially those that can get much brighter, once the size or price increases. For example, the Nitecore Tini that can do nearly 400 Lumens for under $30 and is not much larger. Anker also has some USB-charged lights that decent and at a decent price (not large, but still much larger than a keychain light).

The tech in this is too dated to make this a deal. You can get similar built, much brighter flashlights from Convoy for $10

But does the Tini use a lithium battery? I kind of want to wait for the lithium air batteries supposed to come out in the next few years, to double the battery performance.
Some say that these flashlights are constructed around the smd emitter, I say it's constructed around the battery.

I own the Tini. Love it.
The Notecore Tini description states:
"RECHARGEABLE WITH LONG RUNTIME - The built-in Li-ion battery runs for up to 60 hours and is rechargeable from any available USB power source using the built-in Micro-USB port."

But convoy are going to run off an 18650 and will be considerably larger. Plus convoy doesn't have the best build quality.
