    Business and Industry Liason for my provincial government. I often visit rig sites etc as part of my job at night and it scores me points having a brighter light than any of the rig and/or service crews.

    College student in technical theatre and part time stagehand. Most of the time I am working either in the dark or a poorly lit area. I circulate an EDC sized light with a low setting (especially during performances), and something beefy (like a high output lamp in the G3 or the M60) for certain very dark open spaces that tend to eat up your lumens.

    Hahaha, I see a lot of people just like to carry that many lights because its a hobby, or because they really need at least 2 -3 lights in some cases.
    Well I carry 2 lights in the car and one on my keys

    i am a home builder and i use my light constantly to inspect sheetrock, cabinets, attics, you name it. you should see the look on my contractors face when i whip out a light. most of them figure that, if i don't find it or see it , then they got away with it. or at least they use to.

    I am a radar technician, but where I work, power goes out about 2 times a month and it is good to have a light on your person to make your way out of the building until power is restored.

    Commercial and industrial generator electrician. I see the worst cases of "prevented" maintenance and abuse one can imagine. Spot, flood, throw, runtime- I need them all. If I had a nickel for every darkened stairwell I've ascended...

    Audio visual technician. At work I always belt carry a P1D R100 which gets used many times a day. Great for delving into equipment, cupboards or finding my way around a dark hall. An L1T v2 lives in my desk drawer as a back up. Any other lights I have with me are my usual EDC (P1DCE Q5 keychain, P2D R100 and 120P in backpack) and don't get dragged around on the job.

    I'm the recruiting manager for Multi Level Marketing Inc. I have a key-chain flashlight, because there is our cool company logo (" $$$ ", cool huh?) on it!














    Okay, here is the truth: I need a powerful, tactical LED flashlight with me, so I can install those tiny devices in the suite of the Chinese ambassador but also render the guards incapable by shining 200 lumens in their eyes!

    I work in a hurricane ridden county engineering department, and require a few different lights. before that i was in the navy and worked for one of those places left unsaid where i required many "T" series lights. i have/carry so many because i'm a flashaholic/knifeaholic/watchaholic/compassaholic/gpsaholic/anythingthatwillensuremy/myfamiliessurvivalaholic. ha. i like being prepared for anything, and like jeff above, i like having the right tool for the job ( by the way, i am also a jeff).

    I work in technology and frequently find myself crawling around in dark wiring closets and dimly lit control rooms and stages. I can't tell you how many times my QIII and Fenix P5 have kept me from falling down stairs and tripping over wires. They've also been helpful during power outages, of course.

    L.E.O./Firearms Instructor. I enjoy demonstrating Surefire weapon lights & handheld tactical lights to officers who think having a "good" duty light means buying a two D-cell M**light

    I mainly use my 6P LED Defender (w/ Malkoff M60), a 6P (w/ R2 290 Lumen Lamp Upgrade) & a 500 Lumen M6 "Guardian" for those "special occassions"

    Student. But I only carry one flashlight.

    It gets very dark here on the island at night so it is a lot easier if you DO have a flashlight. We have a blackout at least once a year on campus and it's another good reason to carry.

    It's really my hobbies where a flashlight is useful... outdoors, exploration, cycling...

    Island as in Staten Island?
    And campus as in CSI?
    Its better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it.
