I own many high quality flashlights from many manufacturers. I love this little AAA wonder and it has become my EDC light of choice (and I can choose from many) I love the fact that it is powered by a AAA battery. It has great versatility and is loaded with features. It is rugged and dependable. I have had this light for about a year and I have been tough on it. I carry it all of the time and I have, unfortunately, dropped it many times. It just keeps going. The finish is excellent and it still looks virtually new. The flood is bright with broad coverage. The throw is much better than I expected for a light that is designed for flood purposes. I use the tail cap magnet frequently and it is more than strong enough to keep this little powerhouse in place. Bottom line: This is a well made AAA EDC light that you can count on. Hands down the best AAA for the price that I have found. Feature packed, rugged and reliable. I will buy more Manker lights with confidence.

Is this the brightest flashlight in the world? Nope but for a light no bigger than my pinkie, it's so solid, very bright and very versatile. I got the Nichia bulb and love it, going to order another Nichia as well as a Cree model just to have. Big fan. Use in law enforcement capacity, coworkers also agree with its value.

This light is replacing a much larger right angle flashlight. i like to clip it to my shirt, so I can have both hands free. It does everything I need it to do in a very tiny package.It seems to be high quality and well-made.

I purchased two E02 with the Nichia LEDs and am surprised at how small these torches are. They fit in pockets, bags and pouches taking up no more room than a stick of gum. AAA batteries are easy to source and four spare batteries take up less room than a box of matches. The light is astonishly well projected and the controls well thought out. I thoroughly recommend the E02 torch. It should be in everyone's pocket, little alone in every EDC.

I received this light today, it took about three and a half weeks to get to United States. I absolutely love it! I actually just ordered a gray one with the headlamp band.

I've had occasion to want a light that is powerful enough for rural work at night but with options lower output for reading etc. The light must be small enough to always be on hand, run on batteries i can get easily, if it can be used hands free even better. It's still new but it's part my edc in all roles I hold and it makes most of my other flashlights redundant.

Built very well, powerful, great diffused light, a true compendium of practicality and utility.
I am very happy with the purchase.
Well done Manker!

I am a big fan of 90 degree angle head lights and wanted to try out the Nichia 219C led, and this light gives you that option at a great price.
Giving the option of choosing the LED is a huge plus
CRI in the 90's.
Small size almost disappears in your pocket.
Nice clip, removable. Able to clip on the brim of a hat or shirt for hands free use.
Magnet in tail cap.
Lockout feature built in or by loosening tail cap.
Low moonlight mode. (most lights the moonlight mode is too high. This is just right.)
Nice output level ranges
Beam pattern, nice sized hot spot with good transition. Good for up close work as well as at a distance. No artifacts visible and no noticeable rings.
I have been having to care for somebody with some very serious wounds and have to change the dressings and monitor the wounds for signs of infection. I have been comparing my different lights as to how the wounds and skin appears under different led lights. I have 11 different lights, some very high end flashlights. The skin tone and damaged tissue looks the most natural using this particular light and LED (Nichia 219C) configuration. Most by a very large margin. I did not purchase this light for this particular reason, it just so happened that I had it ordered and received it at this point in time.
User interface: Takes a little while to get used to the hold down to turn off. I am used to clicking once to turn lights off. Not bad, just different.
Not a big fan of the blinking and strobe options, but they are there and you don't have to use them.
I would purchase a headband if that was available.
I would like to see this light available in aa as well as the 123 / 16340 battery configuration as well.
The light was purchased by myself and no money or merchandise was given for the review.
All prices are in USD.
