Can anyone comment on how this compares to the MecArmy IllumineX Series that's currently an active drop? That is substantially lower in price, and the specs look very similar.
I don't own either of these lights yet, I'm also looking at picking up one or the other. From what I can tell these are the differences:
MecArmy IllumineX Stainless Steel $21.99
Cree XP-G2 130 lumens
Built-in USB charging port
Comes with 1 battery and a chain/lanyard
1.7" x .5"
Maratac Peanut LED Stainless Steel $39.99
Cree XP-G2 S4 145 lumens
Seperate screw-on charging head
Comes with 2 batteries, waterproof spare battery case, zip pouch, USB cable
1.3" x .5"
Basically the Maratac is smaller, potentially brighter, comes with a spare battery, USB cable and a couple other extras. Up to you if that's worth the extra $18. It's interesting that the MecArmy light claims to be "the world's smallest USB rechargeable flashlight" but the Maratac is nearly a half-inch smaller, probably because the charging port isn't built into the light's body. Personally I would probably go with the Maratac just for the smaller size.
