    Lumapower ConneXion X2, arrived yesterday
    Why?
    It was the closest to the EDC light I wanted:
    - Takes AA batteries
    - It's floodier than average (but has a good throw for up to medium-range)
    - Tailstands
    - Can be turned into a full flood light if needed (by removing the head and exposing the LED)
    - Multimode with a good high and a nice low mode (medium is a welcome optional for me)
    - Helder

    It's not how far you fall, it's the way you land

    I just ordered the 3rd Fenix P1D after the postal service apparently sent it on a round the world voyage. I bought one for my daughters mate as a thank you for letting me stay in their home for my triple bypass and one for myself, unfortunately mine went for a walkabout so I ordered a 3rd one just as my ex notified me it landed at my daughters house yesterday. I told her I had just ordered another one as a replacement and she asked "Can I have this one then" I think she has lost the dorcy 2 cell 123 light I gave her so naturally I said yes just read the instructions and don't lose this one LOL. It sure is fun creating new flashaholics!!!!

    Here is a little discussion on the owners of this light I had found. Also some beamshots included.
    http://www.dealextreme.com/forums/Default.dx/sku.20233~threadid.325257

    The only thing is that they say it is not an HID light... they are claiming it was falsely advertised and is actually a halogen...
    http://www.dealextreme.com/forums/Default.dx/sku.20233~threadid.271543

    The light seems to have a powerful beam, based on the posted beamshots.... but then again it does take 3 18650's... And if anything... this is probably a cell guzzler if it is a halogen..

    TaigerSX... what is your input on this? Since you do own this light...

    I guess nobody credible like Selfbuilt really tested this light out. So no really confirmed lightbox results and/or runtime charts for this light ATM...

    I appologize that htis is my first post and have been reading up for quite a while on all information. I have the uf rl-2088 light and think it is worth every $. Well made, quite bright, fair run time and came with out any flaws. I have researched all the lights that I have purchased through the CPF forums. I have used the reviews good/bad and even on this light I found mixed reviews. I still purchased the light and am very pleased with it. My hat is off to all of you for your great reviews as well as bad. I guess you have saved me some $.

    Last week I received two new Fenix: E20 and P2D. Today, another Terralux Lightstar 220 arrived.
    The reasons: These are the 4th and 5th Fenix models in my collection. I really like this brand: reliable, well-constructed, never failed or blinked.
    About the Terralux, as I said, is the second unit of the same model I own, this time purchased as a back-up (the original is alright, thanks). Also very well built one.

    I suck at actually buying lights...

    The last two lights I bought were my Fenix e01 (last october) and L1T (over a year ago) - the e01 as a replacement for a Solitaire style light - small, basic and functional. The L1T as my main light - simple UI, AA batteries, solid and functional.

    Between those two I haven't really had any need to buy a new light (ignoring the cost factor) and I have not yet found anything better suited to what I want than the L1T (the LD10 for example is better, but too complicated, Surefires use 123's not AA, etc...)

    I am currently debating either another L1T as a spare (after misplacing it a couple of times...) or an LD01 as a halfway between the e01 and L1T - smaller and easier to carry than the L1T, but also more output and better tint than the e01.

    4Sevens tactical Quark AA is what you need. It has the same 2 mode interface as your L1T, but it allows you to select the 2 modes with 8 different settings, 5 brightness and 3 flashling. It really isn't as complicated as it sounds.

    A D10 R2, because I can't bear to be without a light while waiting for my Warm Quark AA.

    It's the second D10 I've had, the switch stopped working on the first and it never reached the company I returned it to, but the simplicity of the UI and the ease of carrying it clipped in the coin pocket on my jeans were enough to convince me to buy another one. Sadly the new one seems to be going through batteries at an alarming rate, but it's here to stay at least until I get the Quark.

    I ordered the Eagletac T20C but haven't got it yet. Does that count?


    Eagletac seems to put out more lumens than the M20 and gives you a diffuser. The colored filters are neat but I didn't buy them. I have no real purpose for them.

    I ordered the UltraFire MCU-C7 from DealExtreme along with a bare MC-E emitter. I wanted to try the emitter swap I read about. Worked pretty well. Runs about 250 lumens but it sure eats batteries.

    Eagletac T100C2. Excellent regulation with 18650 batteries, and 200+ lumens with a smooth beam using a smooth reflector!

    Eagletac P100C2. It has plenty of runtime and output and is small enough for pocket carry.
    Fiat lux!

    L1D and an E01 as my first "real" flashlights for EDC.

    Use them both in work, and as good as the L1D is, I still want more. I have a feeling August could be an expensive month, I want a load of lights sorted and ready for the winter!!

    Maybe you can save some money by knowing that the L1D head can be interchangable with the L2D(2xAA 180 lumens) and P2D (1xCR123 180 lumens) bodies... L2D for longer runtime and brightness, and P1D for a portable light with the same brightness level as the L2D (180 lumens).

    So as not to confuse you.... I am copying Gunner12's post to show you which head is compatible with which body tube:

    "The P2D/PD20 head is compatible with the L1D/L2D/LD10/LD20/L1T V2.0/L2T V2.0 body and the same circuit as the respective models(P2D/L1D/L2D, same circuit, PD20/LD10/LD20, same circuit)."

    Hope this helps and saves you some money!

    Quark 123 Tactical Neutral (warm) Tint No Clip.

    I ordered this light because I wanted the following features:

    2 level operation, with each level selectable
    Warm tint emitter for outdoor use (hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, etc.)
    Low lows (moonlight .2 lumens and low, 3.5 lumens)
    Silly modes (strobe SOS) either absent, or completely out of the way

    As a bonus, there are several other desireable qualities:

    Very nice beam pattern, good combo of throw and flood
    Very good build quality
    Lego-izable for different battery types
    Forward clicky
    Great knurling - aggressive enough to hold onto, but probably won't eat pocket linings...time will tell
    Aesthetically pleasing styling

    LiteFlux LF5XT: unparalleled customizing possibilities, build quality, sale price, and the fact that my only other AA lights are a JetBeam Jet 1 (about 30-35 lumens, max) and a JetBeam EP3, which is made of relatively heavy stainless steel.

    I've been looking for a AA light with an upgraded LED and a UI that I can conform to my desired qualities, at a good price, and the sale on this light was an opportunity I felt I should jump on.
