The ITUO Wiz1 800 packaging is worth noting.

The story gets better when the issue of price is discussed. $80 for the Wiz1 and $90 for the Wiz2 is simply an incredible value.

ITUO Wiz1 800 Beam Pattern

Beam Pattern Photo

We photographed the lights in the same location setting with the same camera settings. The photo was taken in the back yard that is approximately 25 yards long. The backyard beam pattern allows you to gauge the throw and the width of the light. Compare all Beam Patterns here »

Integrating Sphere Measured Lumens

This light measured 795 Lumens in an integrating sphere. Claimed Lumens by the manufacturer is 800 Lumens. Compare all Lumen Tests here »

We were impressed with the performance and value of this light, but the quality and construction were totally unexpected as well.

ITUO Wiz1 800 weight with mount is 208 grams.

It’s a great light that comes in a 2 hour version or a 3 hour version. The battery is field replaceable if one ever needs even more runtime.

    I’d love to see a pict of these sitting beside a Fenix BC21R. The lights have really similar performance (same LED), feature set, and take standard batteries.

    Seems like the Wiz’s are a little bigger, have a bulkier, more versatile mount. The Fenix BC21R seems to be plastic, has a fancier beam, and red side-lights. It’s mount is proprietary and I don’t think that rubber will last as long as the Wiz mount. Especially if you leave it in the sun all day.

    I like that these Wiz’s seem to have the charging port on the side. I’d be hesitant to mount the Fenix upside down for fear of water puddling on the cap and getting in.

    Any comment on the feel of the buttons? Both fairly glove friendly? Do they make clicky noises?

    ITUO recommends “high quality protected” batteries for it’s double-barrelled Wiz20 [http://www.ituoworld.com/en/content/?215.html] and all 3 of these new Wiz lights clearly have a lot in common. Any recommendation for “protected” batteries for the Wiz1 & 2?

    I wonder if the “protected battery” is actually the “19670″? According to Wikipedia, that’s the proper designation for a protected 18650 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/18650#Cylindrical_lithium-ion_rechargable_battery]
