I received this light yesterday and am impressed with its small size and light output. The change for this model vs. the regular quark mini 123, the reason for the "x" in the name, is the use of a newer model of light emitter from CREE, the XM-L T6. The size is rather compact being shorter than two cr123 batteries laid back to back. The brightness, when compared to other flashlights, seems to be coming close to its stated outputs but because its spread pattern is more of a flood style you don't get the wicked bright hot spot in the center of the beam that you do with a larger light. For example a Surefire Z2 combat light with a led conversion that claims 70 lumens when pointed at a wall has a tighter brighter hot spot and the minix123, claiming 210, seems to put out a good bit more light overall on a wider portion of the wall but its center is not as bright to my eye. The user interface is a simple twist style with no tail cap button. Time will tell if I miss the tail cap button enough to be an issue but in one day of playing around I got fairly quick at cycling thru the functions one handed. I am impressed with this, my first example of a 4sevens flashlight, and look forward to putting it to use.

One year update:

This little guy has been with me for a bit over a year and it is still going strong. It has ended up in my left pocket tied to a small pocket knife (Case Mini Blackhorn, Zytel) for 55 hours a week for the last 52 weeks. Rubbing against the plastic scales of the knife it shows wear to the black finish but nothing that is unexpected and the lens shows no signs of wear. It has only needed batteries, lens cleaning and a little gun oil on the threads from time to time.

This light is 1) blindingly bright (when it needs to be), 2) small, I mean really small!, 3) shockingly light and 4) built like a US-made tank. What else is there to want?

I have lots of other LED lights including SF and two other 47s. I have high standards and high hopes for this light, and I was not just pleased with it, but impressed.

If you are looking for a light in this form factor, look no further. I love its interface, and unless you need an EDC that will instantly blind an aggressor, the interface of this light is perfect.

This is a practical light for almost all nonviolent uses. This light won't bash anyone's skull like the SF E2D, or win a game of chicken with a car like the 4x123 lights, or provide an infinite range of brightnesses like the $200+ SF T1A, but it will work reliably cycling from low to medium to high brightnesses with a smooth back-and-forth 1/8th turn of the bezel answering almost any need for light.

I will mention that since the switch is by screwing down the bezel, it is possible not to turn it off enough that a slight pressure on the bezel will activate the light. If you play with the amount of pressure necessary to switch on the light, you will see it is easy to avoid. However, should you inadvertently activate the light in your pocket, you have about four days (100 hours) to notice before your battery is dead since the first setting is the lowest lumen setting.

THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. 4SEVENS SPECIFICALLY WARNS AGAINST THIS.

So don't do it and then expect warranty service if it, or your house, burns up.

That said, I've been doing it for months now with no problems so far, and others have, as well. It's silly, really, to call it a hack. All you do is use a quality rechargeable cell, preferably with a protection circuit, like the 750mah AW RCR123A that 4Sevens sells on their own web site. You'll need a charger, of course, made for lithium-ion cells. Pila makes a very good one, and 4Sevens also carries a good one on their site.

These rechargeable cells put out 3.7 volts, compared to 3.0 for non-rechargeable lithium primary cells, like the one 4Sevens includes with the light. That small difference in voltage makes this little thing into a 400-500 lumen pocket monster.

DO NOT run the light for extended periods on high when using the RCR123A. There just isn't enough thermal mass in such a tiny light to dissipate the heat, and it's very probable that you'll ruin the light. If you're holding it, you'll know when it's overheating. Just run it on medium if you need to use it for an extended period. Whatever you do, don't leave it tail-standing on high. You won't be touching it, so you won't know that it's getting too hot.

It won't last as long on a single charge as it will on the regular primary cells, but it sure is bright.

I just bought another one of these lights, not because mine burned up, but as a gift. Mine's still running strong on an AW RCR123A.

This fantastic little light is amazing. The body is barely longer than the CR123A battery it takes, and just about as thick. It has a bright 210 lumen beam, that is very floody. Much wider than the spot on my LX2. At first I didn't like it, but the flood has grown on me. As my EDC it is primarily used for illuminating close objects, the nicely diffused beam and 1.2 lumen low setting are great for this. However, it is not tactical in any way. It takes 3 turns of the bottom half to activate the 210 lm high mode. While it is nice to have a strobe in my pocket, I do not think I will ever use this feature. I have accidentally activated it a few times after passing the high mode the first time.

The beam is white, with a noticeable yellow tint. This happens with most Cree XM-L LEDs, as I understand. Most people will not notice it, but when side-by-side with a LED surefire, it is obvious. The reflector has an orange peel texture to it, which helps it achieve a near-perfect beam.

The body is knurled for most of it's length, except for a band where the name/logo is screened on. The tailcap has a drilled hole for the included lanyard or to attach to a keychain. Smaller than most USB flash drives, most people wouldn't notice a flashlight on your keychain.

Overall, a great little light, especially for an EDC.
