Manker E02 1xAAA flashlight / headlamp €12

The best 1xAAA flashlight I own. This is a genuine reduction, it's almost always $20+. Once the US wakes up this deal will not last long. One of the nicest & highest quality torches you can buy at this price.



It's a right-angle design, so very handy for putting on a table/shelf, clipping into your shirt pocket while you're walking, using the magnet to stick to a radiator etc. Comes with or without handband - for $1.50 extra you might as well get it.

Multi-mode, very bright on max. 220 lumen is incredible for a 1xAAA (will only achieve this with a good NiMh, alkaline cannot supply enough power).

Option of Cree or Nichia LED. The Cree is more efficient (more lumens per watt) but a cold and not particularly attractive tint. The Nichia is much warmer tint with better colour reproduction. I prefer the Nichia.

The larger and more powerful 1xAA E03 is 50% off also. But it's the E02 I recommend as it's so tiny !

E02 without headband $11.48

E02H with headband $12.98

Thanks OP. I'm a sucker for flashlights and I wanted a small one with a magnet.

Free shipping too!

Olight don't really have a model that is directly comparable.

Olight have lots of right-angled torches but they tend to be bigger models running on 18650s, built-in charging etc. An 18650 light is in a whole other ball game to a 1xAAA flashlight in terms of size, output, weight, runtime etc.

There's actually very few right-angle 1xAAA on the market, which makes this very cool.

If you mean the Olight 1xAAA that has been posted before, this is a better or more versatile light, but not as compact. It's about twice the price of course, but even at that I would consider it a bargain.

Bought one! Got the one with the headband and Nichia like you recommended. Never ordered from MankerLight (sounds a bit rude!) before but I'm sure you know they're reputable.

They're a well-known brand and the link is the factory direct store. I ordered my own E02 from there a few years ago. They take Paypal so very little risk.

It's coming from China so I wouldn't expect it for at least a month.

Bought the AA and the AAA version. Thanks for the recommendation teotwaki (and earlier olight ine too ) I was just cursing my old head torch wondering how I might get a decent quality replacement at a decent price.

Post it up and I’ll send you a few euro to waste on the cheap plastic PC that you need.
