Wowtac A6 flashlight,18650 built-in charger $24, FS

$24.00

ThruNite Direct via Amazon [amazon.com] has the Wowtac A6 for $30 - 20% off clippable coupon = $24. Free shipping even if you don't have Prime.

I saw another flashlight deal today on the front page for the Anker Bolder LC90 $22 and almost brought it. After some research, I'm glad I found this one instead. It's $2 more than the Anker, but has some features I liked better:
  • no awful "tactical" aesthetic. Just a straight flashlight.
  • has a firefly mode of 0.2 lumens, and it can be accessed directly from off.
  • button sequence doesn't force you to go through strobe or turbo mode mode in typical usage. Don't have to hold the button down for 2 seconds to turn it off if you want to avoid those annoying modes. Just a much cleaner UI.

Otherwise, it has some of the same good features as the Anker in the front page. Built-in USB micro connector for charging the 18650 battery. Really bright, multiple useful modes.

Some negatives: no zoom though, and doesn't have the customer service reputation of Anker.

Why no USB c
If you want USB-C, you could get the Wurkkos FC11 for $29. There's a 5% off coupon. I almost got that one. USB-C is very nice. It has everything the Wowtac I posted has, but the low isn't quite as low. Decent UI.

The zoom makes the spot light smaller (more intense brightness) or bigger (less intense, but bigger ring of light). There's probably not that much difference between the turbo modes. 900 lumens, 1400 lumen...meh. It only works for a couple of minutes anyways.

ok cool thanks for the info, kind of tough decision to pick which one, though i'd lean towards this wowtac, the extra 500 lumens could mean seeing that ghost in the woods or not lol!

Fenix is a brand I've been very happy with. Have a couple that are 13 years old and still going strong.

What kind of flashlight? Flooder or thrower? Small or large? 18650 or AA/AAA? Warm light or cool light?

Are you thinking of carrying it every day for work or for outdoor camping use?

If you want a pocket carry, check out the Thrunite TC15 at nearly double the price.
If you want a soda can sized light, check out the Emisar D18 which is $99 before batteries.
If you want a thrower in a small packet, check out the Noctigon K1 which will run between $80 and $150 depending on LED format.
------------------------------------------------------------

This is a fine flashlight. Don't let the 1460+ lumen statistic be the selling point though. Keep in mind that this flashlight won't hold 1400+ lumens for longer than a minute or two tops. After that, it will throttle down to 400 lumens. Also note that doubling the lumens only leads to about 40% perceivable light increase. So don't get into a lumen battle decision over these flashlights.

The main issue with this flashlight is it's a cool white and has relatively low CRI seeing as it's a 5000k to 6500k tint. You would be better serve with a warm light 4000k tint which you would rarely find in this price range.

For this price, this would serve well as an every day pocket carry flashlight for work. Trust enthusiast will tell you to double your budget and get a better light.

wowtac is the value brand for thrunite, which is regarded as one of the high end flashlight manufacturers. I have had a Wowtac a1, a1s, and a2s for a couple years and they have served me well. You can recharge the 18650's in a standalone charger that costs like $10-20 on amazon.

Bought this days ago on this deal. Worth every penny! Also have the a7 and Nebo Torchy [cool lil thing, magnetic base/charger. ]. Why does anyone care about USB-C in the $2x range?
