Didn't see any newer AA flashlight from nitecore. not obsolete if suit your needs. Not exploring those using 18650 batt?
sorry, got mixed up. I meant is the MT20A obsolete (not selling anymore)? Read that the MT21A is the replacement of MT20A.

currently considering also the MH12GT vs P12GT together with MH20GT vs P20 .
Would there be any issues from USB charging? like water seepage or rubber cover torn?

thinking of getting a MT1A or EA11 and another with great throw yet portable.

Would not want to bring a AA battery charger and 18650 charger for tour....

The Klarus double switch design is nice.
comparing between the XT2CR and the nitecore MH12GT or MH20GT

the nitecore seems to have a longer throw.
would a throw of 100m be sufficient if for normal walking in dark areas?

There is disadvantage for a small light with long throw. The beam won't have good coverage of the surrounding.

Hi all

So the XT2CR is the best option for a powerful torch with USB charging for a Budget if around $100-150? Any recommended sellers? See it on Lazada for $90 and thought of getting it as it seems to perform better than the more expensive Nitecore MH12GT.

Where can I buy this? Preferably with local warranty?

What's the diff between the 2 versions and which is better? How to tell them apart from the listing?
