I found a 100 year old company that would create these heirloom quality canisters for me. They are handmade and will keep your tea leaves, coffee beans or anything that you need dry for years to come.Best feature? The USB-C charging setup is great. USB-C type connectors are symmetrical, so they go in right side up or upside down. It's much easier to use than a micro USB type connector. I'm glad I did! The LED screen is great and the various modes go all the way from nightlight mode to a pretty respectable 500 lumen bright light. The built-in timer functionality is really great as well.

With the torch both off and on, press and hold the MODE button to access the TURBO level; release the button to switch off or to return to the previous light level set. I knew this would be tiny, but I was still surprised when I got it in my hand. It's impressive how bright this thing is given its size, and they managed to stuff a OLED screen in it, too! Because the TINI2 uses the same UI as found in the T4K I previously reviewed, this section will be quite familiar to those who read the T4K review. Please bear with me on this! There are some subtle changes though, mainly the Turbo mode.
When and how
With the flashlight both on and off, press the POWER and MODE buttons simultaneously to switch between the DEMO and DAILY modes. The LED will flash to indicate the currently selected mode: 1 flash indicates DEMO mode, two flashes indicate DAILY mode. (During this operation, the display will show the "DEMO" or "DAILY" mode to inform the user.) The compact torch is rechargeable via a USB-C port and has multiple charging safeguards, including over-discharge, overcharge, short-circuit protection and once charging has completed, it will automatically terminate. Please note, a charging cable is not included. When fully charged: Turbo 15min, High 45min, Mid 2hr 30min, Low 8hr, Ultralow 60hr. It was able to hold a charge for over a month with infrequent use.
