    Default Show your CR2 lights!

    I've added some new ones to my collection, so I decided to photograph the group:



    From top left, left to right, top to bottom:

    Top row:

    Surefire KX2 on Netkidz flared body with Surefire tailcap and Ti shroud.

    Titanium Muyshondt Aeon

    Middle row:

    Blue Swirl Ion

    Bare Aluminum Raw with warm K2TFFC emitter (my brightest CR2, by far)

    GanP Retro KL1 head with Cree Q5/McR19XR on Netkidz straight body with Surefire tailcap.

    Bottom row:

    Bare shortened KI-T, beadblasted and polished, SSCP4 emitter.

    Mirage_Man Camo Raw, Cree XR-E, 100L high, Modified / Turned Down McR 19.

    Titanium Ion

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Let's see yours!

    Mmmm... I love me some CR2 action! Nice lights, Donn, and great thread topic!

    Here are my favorites:

    PhotonFanatic's Tasklight I & II



    And also one of my most used lights (next to a non-CR2 light), TB's CR2 Kroll floodlight:

    Lovin' these lights!

    Donn, could you list the lights that you have in the photo? Are some of those finishes custom done?

    jch, what is the difference in finish/materials between the tasklight 1 and 2?

    A few of the finishes are custom.

    Thanks Donn. Absolutely love that blue swirl ion. Saw the sales thread from awhile back. Would kill to get my hands on any of those custom anno'd ones.

    Hint Hint to anyone who'd be willing to part with one.

    The Blue Swirl Ion is a dandy. It fits perfectly, and looks right, in the watch pocket of faded jeans, and has a lovely floody 2-stage beam.

    I don't mean to torture you. My EDC for the past two years has been the Aeon, but I may swap in the Ti Ion, because the beam is so much more friendly. I have cataracts in both eyes, and until they are fixed, I frequently need light for things like poking around in closets and other close work. The Aeon is too much of a thrower. The Ions have a flood beam which is much more useful for close work.

    No worries! Sorry to hear about the cataracts. I have relatives that had them so I understand. Probably the only place to pick up one of the anno'd ions would be the Custom BST right?

    Sorry I didn't see your question earlier!

    Tasklight I (on the left - dull) is bare aluminum, Tasklight II (on the right - shiny) is electroless nickel plated Al. The TL2 is still available here. The TL1 was limited to just one copy.

    Hey John,

    No worries! Thanks for getting back to me. I've seen the regular task light on Fred's website. Just got my first Photonfanatic lights (two killers). I definitely love the knurling on the Tasklight. Excellent choice! Can't wait to place a custom order with Fred one day.

    I have only 4 CR2 lights, from left to Right:


    • 47's CR2 Mini
    • Peak CR2 Pacific?
    • My CR2 Clicky version of the "Clone" of Mac's Custom EDC. Stainless steel with clip taken from 47's Ti Quark.
    • E2DL 2xCR2 Shorty. The 5th light is for size reference, the original E2DL was slightly taller than that, which was a bit too big for my taste, The E2DL bezel "teeth" were removed & the body was cut-down from VG FB2 .

    I had no idea there were so many CR2 batteries.

    I would like to get some more but I do not want to go over say 50 bucks.

    The Coleman on the left is the only one I have so far. Saw it at Walmart one day and I couldn't resist.

    Aluminium. My wife EDC's it on a lanyard with her keys etc. Survived very well so far, over 3yrs in use. Nice thing with the UI is that it inherits most of the code from my other flex drivers. So, it has the autolock feature turned on, so every time you click it off it needs 3 quick clicks to turn it back on - so no chance of it being accidentally being turned on day to day. Turns on by default on medium (around 150mA to the LED), but a press when on will set it to high (350mA) which is plenty of light from such a little light.

    cheers,
