Excellent weight to lumens ratio. New favorite.
This light is not only incredibly light weight and even smaller than you'd expect, it's also got the perfect solid clicky cap with great mode settings (med-low-hi). I don't like getting bogged down in endless useless light cycles and strobes, and this is straight to the point with enough light levels for any close-mid range need. The beam is very smooth and symmetrical, quite brite really!
The clip is solid, and the ridges under it on the body border on too-sharp for some pants, and it takes a little effort to get it clipped into my pocket. It still removes easily, however.
I must say again how light weight this thing is, and the difference in temperature transfer in titanium is really neat (it doesn't really seem to get cold to the touch like aluminum, out in the winter winds.) I'm using Energizer Ultimate Lithium for now, only a few weeks in but being used every day. Very happy indeed.
I own some shurefyre and other lesser cost stuff, this is by far my favorite that light I have. Thanks again!
Worth every penny and overbuilt.
This flashlight is so lightweight and compact it will disappear in your pocket. The light settings are all the perfect brightness for any task you could use a light for. Nice and durable, I plan on having this light for a very long time.
I must say that I am addicted to County Comm products. This light is perfect for EDC. It is not my tactical light but it wasn't made for that purpose. It is precisely as advertised: an inspection light. Get it!
It’s so light, it’s easy to forget the flashlight is made of metal. Bright beam with quick and easy cycling between brightness. Excellent design and construction.
I've owned a few inspection/pen lights in the past, but none were nearly as bright as this. The titanium body has a great fit & finish, feels really good in hand, and the light is really easy to use. The tail switch feels solid as well. This was my first Maratac light, and I am really impressed with the overall quality.
I really like this light. It's the perfect size, nice and bright. It will pretty much serve any purpose you might need for light,almost any purpose. I don't even notice it in my pocket when I don't use the clip. And it's so tough and durable not even a scratch yet. Love Titanium. Love this light
I've been carrying this little light daily; love the click-switch at the back, and the three modes are perfect for all my needs. Light, strong, and there is a ring of glow material near the bulb that remains bright with the light off so you can find it in the dark. Tremendous little piece of gear that's become a daily user.
Extremely lightweight and well made. It stays in my EDC bag and goes where I do. Thanks CountyComm!
This flashlight ticks just about all the boxes: solid form factor, beautiful machining, lightweight yet substantial. Rubber click-on is perfect for this model and its three modes are easily accessed. I really like the use of triple a's--you can travel with this and not worry about exotic batteries. My favorite edc light by far and amazing for the $$$$.
Titanium - Inspection : AAAx2 Extreme - Tactical Light by Maratac ™
Just freaking awesome. I love my copper nichia but this is a great compliment for greater output and longer runtime. Leave $urefire and $treamlight in the dust with this immaculate maratac!! I would suggest this flashlight to anyone.
I didn't appreciate this little light till I compared it to a Pelican 2xAAA light I had before. The Maratac is smaller both in length and width. It carries so well in my front left pant pocket that I sometimes forget it's there. I guess being Ti, it doesn't need the excess material like the Aluminum Pelican. The Maratac casts a wider beam too, which I like. It's very well constructed and tough as hell.
The only thing I might change would be to make it programmable. It works great at night in that it comes on in med. But using it at work during the day, I need high power to look into dark areas because of the ambient light. So it can get pretty annoying having to shuffle through the levels to get to full power every time.
This upgrade would likely increase cost and possibly size so maybe it's not worth it.
Otherwise it's the perfect EDC light in my opinion (and I have been through MANY lights.)
Bought this light for my job at a automotive shop, the basic 3 modes work great as I often have this light in my mouth to see what I’m doing, the hi output mode is very bright and the mid level is what I use most. Light weight and durable have dropped it a time or two but with 2 Duracell’s it stays viable for quite a long time... the only complaint I have personally is the pocket clip is kinda dainty. I have caught it a few times but honestly just take it off and bend it right back with pliers and it’s good to go. I’d buy another.
I love this lite. Not a mini but extremely pocketable in my jeans pocket, even with my cell phone. Very adequate lite on medium for most any task and the high power will come in handy in the woods. Also easy, fast service from County.com. I had my order in 4 days. Thanks much County. I'll be back.
It very pocket friendly and very light weight. And it does pack the power with a nice bright light and three levels help when you don't need full power. Only complain is that the edges are a little sharp around the grooves on the head but it's not a deal breaker. Great light for great price and AAA to boot.
As always the quality of product supersedes expectations. CountyComm has excellent items.
Not much to report other than it’s an ideal EDC inspection light. Modes are good, brightness of modes is good, and the fact that it’s titanium makes it awesome. The switch is excellent as well. If I were to nitpick I’d like to have a warmer tint led. That’s not a negative overall, just my preference. As with everything from CountyComm, you seem to get more than you pay for.
Quality beam, well balanced throw and diffusion.
Good build quality, threads improve with use but are less Ti gritty than older lights.
Body is reversible should you prefer deep grooved rings over knurled or want your clip in a different position.
Consistent tail cap switch with enough strength to resist unintentional clicks.
Still has my preferred Med/High/Low order of output with partial clicks.
Apocalypse proof flashlight built to the highest standards that you can truly depend on. Most amazing quality and my first titanium flashlight. Beam adjustment in three modes from maplight, medium to room filling brightness is best experienced by buying one and you will not be disappointed. I own several high quality lights and this beauty is one to be proud showing your friends!
I was delighted when I received this flashlight and I still am, now that I have dulled some literal sharp edges. The flashlight works flawlessly and well, but the machining of the titanium on my flashlight was so sharp that the back edge of the knurling by the switch, and the edges of the grooves at the very front by the lens regularly snagged any fabric they touched. It took several minutes work with emory cloth to solve those issues (I slowly realized that I should have used s small fine file first) and now I simply enjoy the flashlight. One other cautionary note, and not too surprising: I left the flashlight on the highest brightness for several minutes while working on a piece of machinery in a dark area. When I finished the work and picked up the flashlight it was literally almost too hot to hold. I had to gingerly pick it up and turn it off, then set it on its "nose" for a time to let it cool. Better to use the highest brightness for only a minute or two at a time.
This is the first time I have ever written a "less than 5" review for any CountyComm product - I have always had superb results from their products, and I suspect this slightly lower review may simply be a result of purchasing a then brand new product. PLEASE don't let my review keep you from purchasing this flashlight - with the issues fixed, I simply love this light.
Excellent design, beautifully finished, and an outstanding value. I had to get two! This is a great "pen-style" flashlight that fits in many pen holder sleeves in nylon portfolios and briefcases. It comes with two spare O-rings, which is a good idea. You may want to use some pure PTFE lube on the threads, because titanium can gall.
This light has become my new EDC light. I used to carry 2 of the Maratac AAA light, but now 1 single cell and my new AAAx2. I believe in redundancy, especially living in an area waiting for a subduction zone earthquake. This light is much brighter than the single cell version, but doesn't take up much more space. I clip it inside my front pocket where I can instantly access it. And being titanium it light in my pocket, and I don't have to worry about corrosion.
if you are running out of funds and can only get one CC light, I'd get this one.
This has become my new favorite EDC lights! It's so light that you barely notice it, but still has enough size to grip, as well as provide a range of brightness options to do just about anything.
Having this much light immediately at hand comes down to
1) grab any which way toughness,
2) nothing weight,
3) cutting edge brightness,
4) one-hand use,
5) strong battery life,
7) not noticing you have it on your person.
High polish Ti, barrel-flats integrate well with County Comm touches such as firm click for on/off automatically changing to lighter click for cycling light modes.
Ti AAAx2 disappears in either breast pocket of my fall/winter shirts.
This is another welcome County Comm follow up with imaginative, well crafted, light technologies.
Great UI and very well made.
This was my 4th flashlight purchase from CountyCom. Premium workmanship once again!! I carry this flashlight in my front pocket for EDC and don't notice I have it until I need it. I recommend this product as well as other CountyCom products!!!
This flashlight is really impressive and having it available in titanium is just awesome. Basically the same light as the aluminum version except that it's made out of titanium. Sweet!
Lightweight, well machined, reliable.
Titanium - Inspection : AAAx2 Extreme - Tactical Light by Maratac ™
If you are the one that collected very good metal flashlight.
Please, Hurry up.
Because, it for sales in Limited Production Run - 500 Pieces !!!
Don't miss it !
It's not a CR123 "Tactical" light and its not a mini key chain light but it IS a great general purpose light. The thinner AAA size is perfect to fit in a front pocket without getting lost in the bottom with your loose change and the length is just right so when you sit down it doesn't dig into your body. The lightweight and corrosion resistant titanium will probably last a lifetime. The rubber end click switch rounds off the features with a Med-Low-High tap function.
The only negative that I feel I have to mention is the machining left some sharp corners on the bezel of the light so it catches on clothing like your pocket. I will probably knock off the sharp edges with some 220 grit emery cloth so that it won't be an issue.
Overall, County Comm came up with a winner with their Titanium Inspection Light.
Badass lightweight flashlight. I forget it's even clipped to my pocket. Bought another one for my Dad too. Great gift.
Great light. Nice even beam and lightweight.
It's tough, practical, and very bright. This light is light enough and slim enough to be carried all the time, while being bright enough to actually be useful. As an electrician, I have a need for a flashlight several times each day. This one is barely noticeable so I'm able to always have it but never notice the weight or bulk in my pocket. When other lights have been as bright, they're usually bulky enough to make me think twice about carrying, giving it the "will I really need it" type of consideration. With this light, I never think about it.
Superb tool, well made, sturdy and the three light modes are incredibly handy. Built for purpose, I highly recommend this light.
I first bought the aluminum version and loved it. So when the titanium version came out, I had to have it. Bright, lasts a good amount of time on batteries and looks good!
Great little light - packs a lot of power and three levels of illumination all in a small AAA package. These have become my go-to for small portable lights! Highly recommended.
Of course this is just my opinion but after owning multiple Maratac flashlights in the last 5 or so years, this one is my favorite; a perfect mixture of quality design, functionality, lume-power, size and user-friendliness and the price is more than fair!!! I’d say it’s the best Maratac light. (my #2 favorite being the TPF - AA / in black)
Nice light. My EDC. Machining - especially mating threads - was done to a MUCH higher standard than on the single-AAA titanium light. Switch works easily, always returns to mid-intensity from off. Brief presses on the switch cycle from medium to low, then high, then back. Simple, and no irritating flashing cycle to get through. Much better ergonomics than having to screw in the tail cap to turn it on - especially one-handed. It might seem a bit spendy, but your eyes and your fingers are the most important tools you carry, and your flashlight is the enabler for both.
As always the quality of the light is superb! May be my new EDC lamp as the weight and LED color output are correct.
Very well made light lightweight wore on pocket for week hardly no scratches awesome
I tend to use headlamps more than anything for illumination- most of which run on AAA batteries- so in the interest of keeping it simple and consistent, I usually stock a car emergency kit with a headlamp and a handheld flashlight, and an extra package of lithium batteries. Up till now it would be the single AAA titanium maratac rev 4 (which I also daily carry on my keychain) - but now the car kit has this flashlight in it. Love the push button feature. It works great.
I carry this with me every where i go. I clip it in to my shirt like a favorite pen. The build quality is second to none. The beam pattern is wide, even and bright. But this has no range. A Great floody for indoor use. Money well spent. Should have bought Two
Lights are very well made. One issue i see is the sharp machined ridges by the lens. They are very sharp and need to be made less sharp by sanding.
Great pen sized light that travels easily in travel bag or pocket. Great battery life and variable settings.
Slim, light, sturdy, and bright! The Titanium Inspection's quickly become my favorite EDC flashlight.
Same Maratac quality. Very positive click to activate. Light weight quality titanium. Worth is relative, but I would not pay over 45 bucks for this light. If pen lights are your thing it’s a really good light. The look and idea of titanium is a cool factor, but one would be just as well off to have an aluminum version at less cost.
The best "inspection"-type light ever created, Besides being attractive, it appears to be built as tough as nails and plenty bright to boot! I'll be buying more of these before they sell out!!!
This flashlight feels like its...fake, really. It weighs so little. Not a bad thing at all, but this is my first titanium light and I was shocked at how light is is. Compared to my solid copper flashlights, this is thinner and I think will be easier for EDC. Knurling is crisp and grippy. Button action feels firm and definitive.
Output doesn't quite seem to live up to expectations. I think it is quoted as 325 lumens, but it doesn't seem much brighter than my 200 lumen Surefire. But that's just a seat of the pants thing as I have not compared them directly. In any case, output is adequate for my needs. Beam spread is a nice combination of throw and fill that works great for a small light EDC light. It's not going to compare to larger head lights with deeper reflectors, of course.
Overall I am very pleased so far with my purchase and will likely end up buying more to give as gifts (or as backups in vehicles and go kits).
Like always I am very impressed. I own all your TI flashlights now and I am sure this one will hold up just as tough. Nice attention to detail of this fine piece of treasure. No other lights I’ve owned have been able to hold up in the military field.
Surefire, fenix, notecore yep they all failed me. Then my opinion of metals. If your going to have them in a austere environment then your not going to want corrosive or soft metals. Then there’s batteries, CR 123 has been around a while but they seem to still be an uncommon and as soon as you need them they are no where to be found and cost difference over performance ( nope ).
Thank you CC for you high caliber affordable lights and GR8 workmanship.
The only thing that I really want is a memory function on this light. I'd like to use it for EMS but want to be able to start out on the lowest setting so that I don't blind the patient and don't have to always cycle through to the low setting from medium. The only memory mode that is has is that if you turn it of and turn it on withing 2 seconds, it will switch to the next mode (medium, low, high, in that order). But the button his stiff enough that the light tap to switch modes is easy to get and very different from the strong, full, solid click to turn it on or off. Otherwise the light is a very nice size. A bit big for a pen pocket on my uniform shirt but fits in the pockets on my 511 nicely and I'm not particularly worried about dropping it due to the nice clip. The light weight is good too.
Great deal at $42.50, not so great at $54.50, two days later, supply and demand I guess !
I have been using a larger flashlight that takes 18650 batteries at work. I carry it on a hip holster and use it frequently. This "inspection " light looked like a handy size for my shirt or jacket pocket. After a week of using it I rarely use the larger light. This is perfect for most tasks. The different output levels are well spaced and the light is very lightweight but seems well made. Not much else to say. Give it a chance you will love this flashlighr.
I've owned several Maratac flashlights over the years but this one is tops. Its blend of portability, practicality, brightness, and toughness, is sublime. Because it takes AAAs, it's easy to carry and very easy to find batteries for anywhere. I keep a peanut light in my EDC bag, the copper AAA in my jeans pocket, but this is going in my jacket as a matter of course. The single AAA copper light is lovely for most uses, but when I'm in the countryside, it isn't really enough, and it doesn't make a good kubotan. This one does. Also, with two batteries, this one will last a lot longer, so it's perfect for travel. It's light weight as well! I've compared it to the other lights I have around the house (Fenix, 4Sevens, etc.) and this is the best blend of all the best characteristics. And it's a bargain.
Super lightweight, the button works well. The threads are smoother than other titanium twist flashlights. Great flashlight, great price for titanium.
