Perfect hand feeling. UI is just simple and awesome at the same time. Both lights can be upgraded easily if needed. Only issue is that Quad head fits loose on 18650 tube but thicker oring can fix that.

Let's start with the deal: You're getting two lights and two kinds of battery tubes for a great price. 'Nuff said there.
Onto the lights:
The construction and feel of the bodies of these lights is mostly fantastic. Everything feels great in the hands. I love holding the E14, and it looks gorgeous. One place the construction falls down is in the metal tail switches. They rattle, you can shake the light and hear it rattling. Also hitting the switch on the wrong angle can cause a grinding against the walls of the switch housing. These things ruin the feel of the switch for me.
The MC13 has a crazy tight little hotspot. It's a fantastic thrower. The E14 is super floody. It's definitely using a floodier optic than most quad emitter lights. The tint on the neutral white E14 tends towards green. Greener than I've seen on a neutral white before and even when it's in the higher modes. It could use a minus green filter, but it does not come with one.
The UI is subjective, and the jury is still out but I think I'm not a fan. It seems every brand wants to put out their own UI for various reasons (whether it be copyright, brand identity, or they think they know how to do it best). A few brands get it right, but I think most do not. Mankerlight is no exception. I find their need to differentiate in this area has lead to an usual UI that is less intuitive or just breaks muscle memory or both. I'm not sure how long it will take to get used to but at the same time I'm not sure I should have to.

I purchased the manker blf combo as o has a previous e14 gen 1
I lost and had loved. The gen3 is even better and I would say manker is the best value Edc light on the market. I also have the thrower that was part of the combo and I’m super impressed with it also.

Love the MC13, great throw for a light it’s size. Seems like solid quality also
E14 puts out a lot of flood, slightly on the greener side but still great output. Glad I purchased them

Nice package combo, at a price you’d expect to pay for one light. The MC13 puts all the light on the subject you’re seeking, with no wasted spill. And according to my wife, the E14III is as ‘cute’ as can be. Powerful enough to illuminate the entire attic, she emptied the battery on a four hour tour cleaning the attic “Looks great, honey. You sure you don’t need help?”
I told her the tubes were on the wrong lights (i lied. How else would i get my light back?). So I switched heads between the lights and they work perfectly in that configuration also. I think the 4 leds in the e14 benefit from the bigger battery tube, since i only use the MC13 for spotting numbers on a house. Doing a 20 minute premise check on a building Didn’t even put a dent in the battery life.
My only gripe is the loose feeling of the tail switch which is noisy when you use it, but functions perfectly.

These are great lights. The MC13 has an awesome pencil beam and will throw quite far for its tiny size. The E14 is also great, the Samsung emitters are a little more green/yellowish than I would like but overall it's very good, and the glow gasket is a nice touch. The 18350 size is great and on the low setting the E14 has a good runtime with the keeppower 18350 rated at 1200mAh and puts out a lot of light. My one gripe with both is that the tail switches rattle around a little more than I would.

Thanks Manker! I love the new UI. The quality of these flashlights feels good.
