    1. JetBeam BA10 on an IMR 14500. Super bright (600+ lumens probably), and wonderful floody beam w/ no donut.
    2. SkyRay STL-V2 on 2 IMR 18650s. Bright (1000 lumens), and my Daddy Thrower. 62mm head, period...
    3. TerraLUX LS300 on 2 AA Eneloops. Brightest 2AA light I know of (300 lumens). Very floody, and the low mode is nice too.
    Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    Currently:
    4sevens Preon2 Hi CRI (EDC)
    JETBeam E3S (alternate EDC) (sometimes sub'd with neutral Xeno E03 - I have trouble choosing between these two.)
    SF 6P w/ NB Neutral XM-L and McClicky (walking the dog at night)
    The E3S should be replaced by a HDS Hi CRI Rotary within a month

    #1 & 2.


    #3 The yellow one on the right.


    I don't go out much at night. When I do go out there are plenty of street lights and parking lot lights. I do carry at least 3 lights with me when I go out but I rarely need them.

    Indoors I have a low wattage LED light in the hall running 24/7 enough for me to wander around without bumping into doors and walls or trip over the furniture.

    The Klarus XT11 is the primary EDC, in the pocket...its the right light 90% of the time for what I do.

    The Foursevens S12 and the Klarus XT20 would be next depending on the day/scenario.....

    But that could be shifted to the ElektroLumens Big Brute or Foursevens S18 again depending on the day/scenario.

    The DEFT edc LR is in the mix as well, mostly in tight spaces with long ranges, like a deep, pipe infested crawlspace that I'd need tight throw to penetrate to the ends.

    The Olight SR 90 is simply amazing if I need a large amount of light on a distant target, but is too much for a tight crawlspace...but perfect for disaster response and inspection of very large spaces where access is hard, but there are lines of sight, etc.

    The above pretty much covers my everyday lighting, except for UV lights - which are more specific to the forensics end of my job....and the XeLED UV light has become my UV EDC light...it works even better than the 3D Maglight with 5 watts of UV and the Inova X5 UV I used to carry daily.

    Hard to imagine the EO1 is almost 4 years old. I have 2 and one of them still have the original battery.

    Great thread since no one single light can meet everyone's needs.

    1) Off duty my FourSevens Quark AA tactical. Easy to carry and bright enough using a 14500 cell for just about all my needs
    2) On duty plain clothes my Quark 123X^2 tactical. and usually another light
    3) On duty in Uniform I switch around but primarily a Klarus Xt-11
    In god we trust.........all others are suspects
    There are no problems in life that can not be solved with high explosives or small arms
    Too many new lights to list

    I have hard to decide 3 specific lights. But if I mention 3 groups/series of lights it would be:

    1: Surefire Outdoorsmans/Defender
    2: Surefire Z2/C2/9P with Malkoff M61/91 dropins
    3: Malkoff MD4 Wildcat gen.1

    I could sell many of my lights but these are keepers.

    Hi all,
    Thrunite 1c with Li-ion battery replaced my SF E1E for EDC.
    Ultrafire UF-T50 with 18650 batt, forward mounted switch reminds me of a Zebra Light. Infinitely adjustible intensity, just press and hold, release at the level you desire. Memory is most convenient. Two quick presses gives you strobe at max intensity reguardless of the intensity you start with...just in case.
    Shadow TC-6 with 2X 18650 for outside around the house. replaced 3C maglite. will be replaced with Shadow Jm 5
    2X 26650 All have cree XML T6 leds.
