Beamshot AAA lights, October 2010
Another round of AAA beamshots, this time the new lights are 4Sevens Preon ReVo, Tiablo E3A and 4Greer WS1, but I have also included many of the well known lights.
Some other AAA beamshots: July 2010, Juni 2010, January 2010, ITP A3 EOS and Maratac AAA comparison, AAA flashlights

I have included the following lights (Same sequence as picture): Tiablo E3A Exquisite, 4Greer WS1, LiteFlux LF2XT Custom Ti, Ray S20, 4Sevens Preon ReVo, 2x4Sevens Preon, Fenix LD01, ITP A3 update, LumaPower Avenger GX, EagleTac PN20a, Titanium Innovations IlluminaTi, 4Sevens Quark Mini CR2

I have used eneloop NiMH batteries for all measurements and photos, except when LiIon is specified and on Mini CR2

BrightnessMax

This chart shows the total light output measured with a ceiling bounce. As can be seen LiIon can give a large boost to output, but this boost will depend on charge condition of the battery. The MiNi CR2 already uses a battery with higher voltage.

Brightness

With all brightness settings in the same chart, it can be seen that only the 3 level lights has a low level, two level lights has a medium and a high level.

BrightnessLux

With the small reflectors, none of these lights are throwers, but there are differences. The 4Greer and Pn20a has the best focus, but it does not throw better than MiNi CR2 that uses more light, not focus, to throw.

Weight

None of these lights are heavy, the lightest of them is the ReVo and the Ray S20 in stainless steel is the heaviest. These weights include batteries and any attached chains (ITP & IlluminaTi).

Summary

In this table I have summarized the abilities of the lights. Some lights can be ordered in different configuration or material. For the user interface I use the following abbreviations: RTS: Reverse tail switch, FTS: Forward tail switch, ETS: Electronic tail switch, Head: Loose/tight head.

Price

Most of the AAA lights are about the same price, only the ITP is significant cheaper. The LF2XT is sold out at this time, but with the custom body and led it is around $200. I have uses the price for the cheapest model of the lights.

Beam profile, high power, reduced exposure
The reduced exposure makes it easier to compare the hotspot.
