It’s been a few years since I bought a “new” LED flashlight. My current Every Day Carry flashlight is still the Fenix E01. The E01 sits in my jeans pocket most of the time, and I use it almost every day. It’s a great little light and weighs almost nothing. However, it is lacking in the power department. I looked around for a more powerful light, and finally decided on a Quark Mini AA from 4Sevens.
Initially, I was aiming for the $70 titanium version of this light. After thinking it over, I decided to save $30 and get the “regular” $39 version instead.
Here are some unboxing and comparison photos of the Quark Mini AA. Click on the images for larger photos. I’ll post up a proper review once I’ve had more hands-on time with this LED flashlight.
The Quark mini AA came in a box, covered in a white cardboard sleeve.
The black box looks like it holds some jewelry or a high end watch.
Inside, we can see the Quark mini AA flashlight and one AA Duracell battery.
