    Default Flashlights You Bought This Month - May 2012

    Just picked up a Fenix TK12 to replace the Malkoff MD2 as a bike light. There's nothing wrong with the Malkoff, I just got sick of taking it off everytime I wanted to go for a run at night, plus the TK12 has a tighter beam which is what I'm after anyway.

    Also picked up a Fenix PD20 R5 to replace the Quark AA2 Tactical in my EDC bag. Again, I got sick of taking it out of the bag everytime I wanted to use it around the house. So, the PD20 is the new resident in my EDC bag, which actally makes it a little lighter. Got about 50 CR123s I've had in the drawer for two years, time to use 'em.

    Bought my first p60 host, a solarforce l2 with forward clicky. It now houses a 90cri xpg @ 1.7 amps. I really love this thing !

    Just bought a used Surefire 6P n-a. Then I found this forum and talked myself into building a flashlight of my own. I have on order: Solarforce L2P with a Solarforce XM-L 3-mode running off of a 18650 3100mAh protected rechargeable. I'll put together something nicer in the future thanks to everyone helping educate me Lol

    Well here's a rather eclectic bunch!

    - Romisen RC-27 II Q5 "flood to throw" (2x AAA)
    - Xeno E03 XM-L T6 Cool White in "Deep-Sea Blue" (1x AA or 1x 14500)
    - Inova X5 (2x CR123A) Black
    - Zebralight SC600 XM-L Cool White (1x 18650 only) WHAT A FLASHLIGHT!!! I KID YOU NOT!!!

    Each of these lights is rather unique in its design and purpose. And so far, each one has more than met my expectations.

    It's been a very bright May 2012.
    EagleTac D25C S2; P20A2 MKII S2; P100C2 Q5; Fenix TK21 U2; LD01 R4; E05 R2; E01

    Well, after carrying a little NEBO led light on my belt for a few years, and having another one on my nightstand for nighttime bathroom runs, I decided to get my wife a new nightstand light after she pointed out that she would like something better than her mini mag. I selected a Fenix LD15. Then I decided to try a Fenix E11 for myself.

    Then, after reading quite a bit on CPF, I thought I'd add a Fenix HL21 headlamp to make my rewiring project in our crawlspace go a little easier. And then I thought I'd better replace the 3 D cell mag light in our car with a Fenix TK35. Of course I needed a couple of Panasonic 3100 mAh 18650s and a couple of packs of Lithium CR123As for backups. Got the order in yesterday and everything is being shipped now. Should arrive the end of this week or early next week.

    That sure is going to be an expensive nightlight that I ordered for my wife. I sure hope she likes it.

    Besides the Sunwayman V10R I bought earlier this month, I ordered a Fenix LD01 yesterday since it was on a daily offer at my favorite Fenix lights supplier. Since I love my 47's Preon 1, Olight i3 and iTP EOS A3 I figured another light in the same category (three settings, AAA battery) would definitely fit in my EDC rotation.

    Do batteries count? I bought 4 x AW IMR 18650 2000mah and 2 x AW IMR 16349 550mah batteries today, plus two waterproof cases to hold them.

    Didn't buy any new complete lights, but I did buy two Malkoff drop-ins. (M61 and M91W). And switched all my lights over to rechargeable cells (Mostly Because I got the new SureFire RCR123's)

    Quark Tactical QTL
    And after considering how fun it would be to light up the town water tower from my yard (among other uses), an Olight SR-90 is on its way and should be here by the weekend.

    Bought a Bayco TAC-200. Impressive thrower with excellent spill. I got mine at almost half off market price, not sure if it's worth what the going market price for it is.

    I've got a Sunwayman V10R T6 with the Sand Finish coming from BJ. I’ve been waiting since August for this one to become available.

    This past Saturday I order the HDS hi-cri. It will be a while before I see this light but, it will be worth the wait.

    Our beloved flashlights need to be fed don't they? I'll say it counts. Nice to have some decent batteries available.

    My Klarus XT2C was at the start of the month and my Eagle Tac D25LC2 XM-L U2 Clicky is in the mail as I type.
    I needed the Eagle Tac after the saddness of not having a clip on the otherwise GREAT light that the Klarus is. [Come on Klarus, get that clip made and ready to order!!!]

    E2L AA, and soon to be delivered 2 E2Ls and a yellow G2. Hopefully the E2L's are the original 45 lumen models with insane runtimes. My collection is lacking models with longer runtimes.

    I ordered a Sunwayman V11R and I am waiting. I need another good EDC to replace the Quark123 due to its little practice UI.

    Maglite Gray 2D incan, with a Nite Ize 1Watt drop in... Boring but worth it for the BOB bag. Wish I could get Energizer Lithium's in D's here in Aus...
