A very good post. Thank you for sharing your insights.
The flashlight in one of the pictures looks like an Inova X1, which is what I carry day to day. If so, is it the flood model or the older spot?
It’s not an Inova flashlight, it’s one of those cheap generic ones.
But yes, it is one of the older 1watt LED, spot light.
I like it because it has good light and uses just one easily available AA battery.
It’s still a bit too bulky for a keychain. So I was looking to get it replaced and leave it in my bag, and get something else for the keys.
I still want to have a more powerful flashlight with me.
After a lot of poking around and reading reviews, I ‘m getting Fenix E01.
When funds are limited you make a lot of looking around and gathering information before you buy anything.
It’s a pretty small flashlight , uses a single AAA and provides 10 lumens . Not a lot but enough for emergencies.
I was ordering one just right now. I’m getting it in olive.
Should be a good partner for the Victorinox Minichamp.
A nice thing about Fenix flashlights is that they apparently ship free world wide, so you might want to take a look.
I’ll write a small review once I get it and try it out some.
