The Quark MiniX is just one of those lights that a person can’t fully comprehend until they see it. The amount of light that comes out of this thumb sized torch is truly something you have to witness to believe. The small size, along with the amazing output makes this light one of my personal favorites. Don’t let its diminutive size fool you, the MiniX hangs with the big boys.

This little light runs off of a single CR123 cell and has 3 different brightness settings allowing you to get the most out of your battery. The XM-L emitter puts out a blinding 210 lumens on high; even more surprising is the full hour of run time the light gives you at that brightness. The MinX is operated by twisting the bezel to cycle through output modes. The bezel operated system is what allows the light to be so small, while also offering the advantage of durability.

If you are looking for a small but powerful flashlight then look no further. It may not be the manliest light out there, but its size and power make it the epitome of the go anywhere, do anything light.
