Would love to see the aluminum (black) model next time around. Thanks!
TLDR: This is a game changer!!

I did a video review for the Aluminum AAA version and thought I would share the link below for any future drop participants that are curious. I also feel that flashlight is super light and if you prefer a bit more heft this SS version could be better suited. The Aluminum one I have feels like it would be much less noticeable to drop out of your pocket or what not.

My review includes discussion of the clip versus if it had a magnet, and I compare its light output versus that of other lights I had brought home from work.

Well if it should matter I will go ahead and leave my impressions on this newly received toy. It is tiny (lol) and I have medium size hands (if that means anything). However..it is a thing of beauty. Yeah it took me a moment or 10 mins to figure out how to cycle thru the modes since I am used to clicky switches but once I did it was effortless in its totality. Great flood (circle) light and this will serve a nice purpose in my burgeoning collection. So to not beat around the bush I give this beautiful light 5 stars and Massdrop got it to me quicker than expected.
Hey everyone, the pricing here was incorrectly set based on the AA model. It's been adjusted and everyone will be charged the new lower price when the drop ends. Thanks for letting us know, sorry for the mixup, glad we got it sorted.

So it is the AAA light for sure? Glad to know and thanks for the clarification.

I suppose the dimensions in the description is for the AA as well?
  • Dimensions: 2.8 x 0.8 in (7.1 x 2 cm)
Kind of a joke, it was cheaper on Countycomm's site by a few bucks for over the last few months...then it hits Massdrop and the price increases both places. :/

I can wait on this "deal."

This is a totally valid comment, and independent of the price on Massdrop. We don't control the prices on anyone else's site, but I've passed your comments along to the vendor. Thank you.
I like the specs on the AAA which is why I am going to grab this but they do need to be updated on the site for those not paying attention to the discussions. AAA has higher lumens despite lower run times.
Now this is a way to start my steel edc and this could be useful but I'd really like a AA version. Will probably jump on this regardless, I need a 90 degree light and don't have one yet.
Official site $39.5

Why is the description and specs wrong on just about every item that massflop drops? It's ridiculous. Just copy the specs from the manufacturer. Are they getting mixed up because of translation? It doesn't give me much confidence that I will be getting what I thought I bought. Come on, be professional.
so is it aa or aaa
I got an email from Massdrop saying that the flashlight is going to be a stainless steel, AA battery light. This is what I hope that it is.

Well what is pictured is defiantly the AAA version. And as far as I am aware, they don't make the AA version in stainless. So idk.

From looking at Maratac's websit, I would agree we you. But, this is the notification that I received.

"The vendor has let us know that although they had originally confirmed that there was inventory Martac Aluminum AA, there has been an unexpected backorder. However, they are able to provide the Maratac Stainless Steel TPF AA Flashlight at the same price. Our apologies for the confusion.
We wanted to reach out to you and let you know about the change. If you prefer not to stay in the drop at this point, you can go to massdrop.com/tranactions to cancel this drop.
Our apologies for any inconvenience, and feel free to email us if you have any questions or concerns."

I wish that Massdrop would make a definitive statement.
