    Lightbulb The most discussed flashlights of the past 12 months

    "?"-column: q = questionable. kreis105 suggestion has not been 100% fully adopted in the present firmware version 1.05, hmm. therefore suggesting again as kreis106 suggestion for FW1.06.

    i plan to update this interesting top list once in a while when i observe major or plenty changes in either list. The Nitecore E-series has certain potential to enter the Front Page or the Reviews Top 20, imho.

    I agree I have the EC1 and it is pretty awesome! Was thinking about getting the EA2 or maybe wait for EC2.

    This list must of took a lot of time.
