Best magnetic keychain flashlight

Lumintop Glow I

Specification:Highlight:
Max output40 lumens
LED typeOsram
Recharge type:Micro USB
lumintop glow 1 runtime

Looking for a really small magnetic keychain light? Then this light is probably what you are looking for. It’s not bright by any means, but some people only need a single-mode flashlight to save the day.

The Lumintop GLOW I is a 40Lumen flashlight with a built-in Micro-USB charger. No hassle with batteries. The built-in battery lasts about 50 minutes on a single charge. Is the battery empty? Charge it with any USB charger. The package includes a short Micro-USB cable so you can charge it on the fly. You can detach the flashlight from the keyring with a quick-release system, which is also magnetic. This is a great feature! Want to know more? Check out our in-depth Lumintop Glow I review here.

Best Magnetic AA flashlight (14500)

Lumintop Tool AA 2.0

Specification:Highlight:
Max output140-650 lumens
LED typeCREE XPL-HD
Battery configuration1*AA / 14500
runtime test 1
Test 1

If you’re looking for a reliable magnetic AA flashlight, have a look at the Lumintop Tool AA 2.0. It’s especially popular amongst flashoholics. We reviewed 3 of them, including the Titanium Tool 2.0 AA light here.

The Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 has three different brightness levels. The great thing about AA flashlights is the extended battery life compared to AAA flashlights. (about three times as long). We do not recommend using Alkaline batteries. You are much better off buying rechargeable NiMH batteries, especially Panasonic Eneloops. Those are constantly coming up at the top of every rechargeable battery test. Make sure you buy the one with the magnetic tailcap.

Magnetic Tactical Flashlight

Olight Warrior Mini

Specification:Highlight:
Max output1,500 lumens
LED typeLuminus SST40
Battery configuration1*18650
Charging type:Proprietary
runtime graph Olight Warrior Mini

The Olight Warrior Mini is one of the shortest tactical 18650 flashlights on the market. Its primary LED is a powerful Luminus SST40.

During our test we noticed that the runtime of the Warrior Mini is exceptional. It runs for 18 hours at 140 lumens in Medium mode, while Turbo and High mode last both more than 3.5 hours each. Its highest output of 1500 lumens is available for 4 minutes before it drops to roughly 500 lumens. This continues for more than 3 hours. And all of that with a single battery.

The included battery can be charged with a normal lithium-ion battery charger as well as inside the flashlight itself. The magnet in the tailcap is strong enough to attach to any vertical metal object. If you want to read all the details about the flashlight, we have a very in-depth review for you.

Olight Warrior X PRO

Specification:Highlight:
Max output2,250 lumens
LED typeN/A
Battery configuration1*21700
Charge type:Proprietary

When it comes to Tactical flashlights, you can’t get around Olight. The Olight Warrior X PRO is a 2250 lumens flashlight with overall great performance.

The Olight Warrior X PRO is quite a unique tactical magnetic flashlight as it comes with a Vibrating Low Voltage Warning system. When the battery level goes down to 30%,  it starts vibrating once every 5 minutes. When the battery SOC(State of Charge) drops to 10%, it will vibrate every 60 seconds. When it drops to 5%, it does so every 10 seconds.

This is another flashlight that has lots to offer. It has 2 modes, 1 Turbo and 1 Low. No hidden modes like strobe or anything else. Probably my favorite, or even the best tactical flashlight with 21700 batteries. We did an in-depth review on is, please check it out here: Warrior X PRO review.

Best right-angle magnetic lamp

Fireflies PL47 Gen2

Armytek accessories
Specification:Highlight:
Max output0.03 – 2000 lumens
FeaturesUSB rechargeable, head strap, magnetic tailcap, bicycle attachment
Battery configuration1*18650 (rechargeable)
runtime test

The reason why I choose the Wizard C2 PRO is the following:

  1. The right-angle flashlight can be used or carried in different ways.
    1. It includes a headband so you can use it as a headlamp, so you have both hands free to
    2. It has a magnetic tailcap, so you can stick it to something metal like your car hood
    3. It has a clamp to attach it to a bike, but you can also use it to attach it to a pole or anything else
  2. It can be charged with a USB charger
    1. Whether you have a USB charger at home, in the car, RV, or anywhere. You change charge the battery inside the flashlight
  3. Its lowest mode is extremely low, so you have a very, very long runtime.

There are however 2 caveats.

  1. The UI needs to be memorized in order to use it properly. Therefore I recommend setting it to General UI, and forget about the Advanced UI
  2. To charge the battery you have to unscrew the tailcap 1/4 turn.. so you have to remember this, which is not easy. It’s best to keep a small cheatsheet with the UI inside the flashlight.

For all these reasons, the Armytek Wizard C2 PRO is a great flashlight to keep in your car for emergencies. Also, keep in mind you better get a USB car charger adapter to make sure you can always charge the flashlight.
