Beamshot AAA lights, Marts 2011

This time I have compared titanium and stainless steel lights, for some lights I have included two generation. I have included some other lights to, an aluminium light (Fenix E05) and a AAAA light (Klarus MiX5). Some of these lights does also exist in aluminium version with about the same performance.
I have included emitter information for most lights, the Q5, R2, R3, R4, R5, S2 is brightness specification. The S2 is brightest and Q5 is dimmest, for the same amount of power. The XR-E, XP-E and XP-G is emitter type, different types will have a different beam shape (Reflector/optic will also affect beam shape).
Some other AAA beamshots: October 2010, 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): TITANER ET20 XP-G R5, Fenix LD01 SS XR-E Q5, Fenix LD01 SS XP-G R5, Fenix E05 XP-G R4, 4Sevens Preon ReVO SS XP-G R4 NW, 4Sevens Preon Ti XP-G R5, Olight Xmas 2009 XP-E Q5, Olight Xmas 2010 XP-G S2, Klarus Mi10 XP-E R2, UltraFire SA-R2 XP-E R2, D.Q.G Tiny AAA XP-E R2, FiFire A18, Ray S20 XP-G R5, Klarus MiX5 AAAA XP-E R2

Note: Olight Xmas lights are the same as ITP A3 lights.

I have used eneloop NiMH batteries for all measurements and photos, except MiX5 that uses a AAAA alkaline battery.

BrightnessMax

This chart shows the total light output measured with a ceiling bounce. Most of the lights are not that different in output, but it is possible to see the that a emitter with higher output (R5, S2) gives more light than a old Q5 emitter.

Brightness


Combining all brightness settings in one chart it is interesting to see how especially the low level differs between lights. The low level on the old LD01 and SA-R2 is more like a medium level. The ET20 with only two levels has a high and a low level, it is medium that is left out.

BrightnessLux

These lights are not throwers, but there are differences. The E05 is made as a flood light. The FiFire has a focused beam, but it is not very bright.

Weight

None of these lights are heavy, but because they are made of SS and Ti they weight more than their aluminium counterparts. The E05 being of aluminium is lighter than the other lights, except the MiX5 that uses a smaller battery.
These weights include batteries and any attached chains (Olight).

Summary

In this table I have summarized the abilities of the lights. Some lights can be ordered in different configuration or material (Alternate version column). For the user interface I use the following abbreviations: Head: Loose/tight head, Tail: Loose/tight head, FTS: Forward tail switch. The LMH (Low, Medium, High) is the brightness sequence.

Price

Some of these lights are premium versions or special edition, this makes them more expensive than the regular aluminium version.

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