    I blame you for reminding me of Lighthound, now I have registered, and I know what such use to result in...

    After weeks of reading selfbuilt's review of the Olight M21 Luminous SST-50 over and over again, I reluctantly pulled the trigger on it at Lightjunction using the awesome CPF discount. I found the M21 cheaper on ebay, but why take the risk when I can get it from a reputable dealer?

    I bought the Olight M21 to replace my trusty 'ol Surefire 6P w/LED drop-in. Hopefully, I won't have buyer's remorse...

    Also ordered a bunch of AW 18650 2600 mAh to boost the run-times a bit on a few lights and some Nyogel lube from Lighthound.

    Now comes the hard part...the wait.

    My shipment from 4Sevens:

    Preon II (black/titanium)
    Preon I (gold)
    Mini 123 black
    Mini 123 titanium (SOOOO pretty!! )

    They're all great. I love the size of the Minis, but I'm not sold on the UI because sometimes if you apply a bit of pressure while twisting on, it will jump through low and medium and go to high when I was after low. Definitely not a deal breaker though - I love them. The Preon II in black and Ti is just beautiful.

    I also got some of those emergency glow sticks (the ones that you bend, crack and shake). Good fun.

    I received the Preon II just this last week...in black...what a beautiful, brilliant light! The texture of it is amazing too, it's almost like it is rubberized, but it's not.

    I have yet another order with with 4Sevens, another Mini123 Ti and and Mini123 Al. Should be here on Monday!!! WOOOO!!!

    It's not a flashlight, but in a related note I just bought a red Coleman Pack-Away 4 AA LED lantern with a Cree XR-C emitter inside. I bought it at Target and it's *perfect* for when I have a blackout, which happens regularly where I live.

    Originally I was strongly considering the River Rock LED lantern, but I didn't like its 3 AA arrangement. Once I read about the Coleman Pack-Away lantern on CPF and saw in person how small it was in its compacted form, I gave up on the River Rock one.

    Surprise, surprise! It showed up today. I'm happy again

    Indeed LH is bad for your wallet. Was there last week to buy a Lumens Factory bulb for the M4 and ordered that along with a Leatherman gift set. Somehow there's an inkling in my head I'll need to go and order some more stuff sometime

    Mag XL 100. Had some money left on a Home Depot gift card. The UI is growing on me but the purple tint leaves much to be desired.

    Today I received Malkoff M60LL and M60LF to my Surefire 6P and 9P.
    Just replaced the Surefire stock incans with the Malkoffs. Now I am waiting for the night to try them more.

    Not flashlights...but I ordered 10 lithium primaries and 4 protected AW RCR123's from Lighthound (which my wife tells me were delivered today! ) and a Shekor Li-ion charger.

    Should keep my RRT-0 going strong for a while.

    Despite the criticism agains LED Lenser on these forums I decided to try their newer M-series. M for micro-processor.

    A brand new (by both means) M14 - you can almost still feel the heat from the forge. So new it's only available very few places. Got one with a very low twin prime serial number not far above 100
    Even like the unusual way they write the serial number. In a fancy way next to the logo. Like saying "here's something very techy from a future far from now". (You might use it when You're doing some "urban exploring" on LV426 )

    Also grabbed an M1 while at it (single CR123A light comparable in size between an LD10 and a PD20).

    Both feels like very nice lights and seems to have addressed the main criticism about a proper driver. Mechanically they're great has a nice quality feel to them. You could argue they're a bit on the expensive side being only XR-E lights but comparing to many other lights it's IMHO not that bad - and none with the great throw of the lens system. The M14 easily makes a brighter hot spot than say a TK40.

    So guess some here just has to get used to the thought - LED Lenser seems to be in the game again
    The annoyance of having bought something mediocre lasts much longer than the joy of having saved on quality....(!)

    1. Surefire AZ2 - after just a short year and half wait for production lol
    2. Surefire G2L in Black (didn't have one with the metal bezel)
    3. 2 Coleman 3 AAA Flashlights (gifts for family)
    4. Malkoff M60LL - cuz it was on sale

    and to think just when I thought that I had plenty of flashlights already.

    I finally obtained a LensLight Mini (after almost 4 months of trying to order one). This is my first flashlight of 2010.

    I've been on a a bit of a spree in the last couple of days:

    4Sevens Quark 123
    4Sevens Quark Mini 123
    Solarforce L2
    Solarforce L2M

    Nothing major. The Quarks are because I wanted to check out some EDC options to add to my Fenix L1D, and the Solarforce hosts to compare with my Surefire 6Ps and G2 (although the L2M was just because I fancied having a 1xCR123 sized P60 host).
