Built-in irreplaceable lipo is not good. I’ve learned the hard way to not trust built-in batteries. A two second delay between pushing the on button and the light coming on is a deal killer. Here is a good review: https://youtu.be/6drOplrdUcY

EBAY!!!!
This is a pretty solid light, as are most Nitecore lights. Amazon Prime + Prime Visa (5% off) is a much better deal considering warranty/replaceability via Amazon and Visa, IMHO, at basically same net price. Or go EBay or Ali and get it for closer to $20 and risk getting a Chinese copy of a Chinese copy.

You are aware that Nitecore themselves are chinese tho..., so if you buy from a seller in Hong Kong as I did you are actually buying closer from the source than if you buy from here.

That’s why I said a Chinese copy of a Chinese copy. :)
Bought this on e-bay 5 minutes ago for a bit shy of $21 with free shipping to norway... and it was the Tini Cu. The aditional $13.25 you are trying to extort just for shipping for this itsy bitsy pocket light is a Crime!

Ah. Well, I forget what I paid for my TM 06, but it wasn’t too egregiously expensive, until you account for the batteries... :-/ Anyway, I haven’t found anything with the quality, the power, and the size to match or beat it. I’d love to have something half the size with twice the power, and no parasitic uneven battery drain.

impossible. Small flashlights with high lumen outputs will always drain a battery like water through an open dam. Sad but true event of life

Fellow shoppers, I just picked one of these up from an Asian website for $10 less then this. Ali has a few options right now that are at least $5 cheaper.
Where’s the copper version? Should offer that one!!
Excellent light. $30 on Amazon with more colors. But if you don't need it soon and/or don't have Prime, this is a good deal.
I love this light. Tiny, super bright, and durable. I just found mine in the dryer after I accidentally put it through the wash, and it's still working fine. Edit: I've had it come on in my pocket a lot of times and kill the battery, which is kind of annoying. I also apparently smushed it too hard in my pocket recently and broke the power button. It just keeps turning on and off :( I still like it, but not as much as I used to. I'm waiting on some tiny star bits to open it up and see if I can fix the power button so I can actually use it again.

Aargh why does the shipping have to be over half the price of such a tiny item O_O

Cool looks like they adjusted it
I've owned one for about a year, maybe 1 1/2 years. I keep mine on a lanyard on the bedpost on my side of the bed. Low has just enough light to make sure I don't stub my toe or trip over the dog or a shoe or whatever when I get up to hit the john. I rarely use it for anything else, but it certainly does have many uses. It's more than 3 times as bright on High as the single AAA light that I have had on my key-chain for several years now. Since I hardly ever use that one anyway, I saw no need to replace it with the TINI, and the TINI is so perfect for what I am using it for that I anticipate it hanging on my bedpost when that bed becomes my death-bed however many years from now. I might join the drop just to get an extra one, but either way, I highly recommend this light, and I rarely chime in to highly recommend anything.
This light is on sale at Battery Junction at the moment for $22.49 (https://www.batteryjunction.com/nitecore-tini.html). Haven't checked shipping charge either here or there though, so can't say whether it would turn out being cheaper than here or not. Also don't know how long that sale lasts, but it would ship before Nov. 5th. Battery Junction's cheapest shipping method ain't no turbo-charged system neither though. Still probably get it before you'd get this one though. Just thought I'd show an option, so there ya go.
Whats the operation with the 2 buttons, is one just power and the other cycles modes?
djpr
Mode button From OFF: press to do a battery check (blue LED blinks 1-3 times). From ON or OFF: Press and hold for 1/2 second to momentarily enter Turbo as long as button held. From ON: Press to cycle Low/Medium/High
Power button From OFF: press and hold for several seconds to turn ON to last mode From ON: press to turn off
Press both buttons together to toggle "automatically turn off after 30 seconds" feature.
I have the copper version and it's the best keychain light I've ever owned (and I've tried a bunch). 380lm is impressive. Only downside for some could be the two-button interface.

I would love a copper version.

I have & love the copper version, too. The only "downside" is the 2 second delay when turning on, I'm so used to immediate on from other lights. Also impressive is how long between charges for such a small light; I thought it'd need to be charged every hour or two of use but I go (with moderate use--several times per night every night) a week or two or more between charges.
How do you recharge it?

Thank you.
Can anyone compare this to the TIP? I know it has slighter more lumens but wondering if there are any other advantages. Not sure I like the form factor as much.

I have both, and it ended up being personal preference in the end. Aside from the form they're both very similar, but if you plan on putting it on a Keychain and keep your keys in your pocket or on a hook I would go for the tip as the tini tended to get snagged and bang around noticeably more. Ymmv though, both great.

The TIP is twice as long and has a larger, longer lasting battery. The brightness of both is about the same.  360 vs. 380 lumens is not discernably different.  I have both and like both lights.
This is a great little keychain light that I've been carrying about a year. Great to see it here at a $5 discount vs normal web pricing.
It's very durable, impossibly bright & small enough to be a choking hazard. It's very close in size to those el-cheapo-exposed-LED gimme lights, but an actual honest-to-goodness usable light.
After my wife saw my black version, she ordered the red. Be aware that it's closer to pink (salmon's a fish, not a color) than actual red.
