Based on the feedback from our customers, users, and fans, we started the work of upgrading the original Auroras keychain flashlights. The improvements are mainly about the battery, operation/UI, and output, etc. Though it utilizes the same LED - CREE XP-G3, thanks to the optimized board driver, the max output it goes to 650 lumens; the optimized driver also brings a better UI and got the PWM issue fixed. As for the runtime, the upgraded Auroras keychain lights are powered by 260mAh rechargeable battery which provides a max 32 hours of runtime at moonlight mode.

I ordered the A4x with a Nichia 219C LED and so far I am very impressed with the quality build and performance of this light. I am always on the lookout for compact (AAA) high quality flashlights with a great tint and this one exceeds my expectations. It will replace a Maratac AAA with Nichia LED as my primary EDC, giving me significantly more lumens and runtime without having to sacrifice much in size.
This was my first purchase from Killzone and I would rate my transaction as EXCELLENT!
