    Surefire G, P, C and Z original series. Great hold comfort and great for use with Malkoff dropins.
    Fenix TK20 - one of the most solid flashlight Fenix ever made, also the most comfortable hold.

    Quite a few. If we leave out the SureFire L1 and SureFire's entire Inca. line of lights; then mainly two.

    1) Nitecore Original EZAA model. (Honestly I must have bought one of the last, if not the last one in existence. Very glad I did.)

    2) Fenix L0D.

    #1 is the only single-AA light I consider small enough to actually replace a common, also small, single-AAA light on the typical keychain. #2 is technically still in production, but as the LD01 and minus the Strobe and S.O.S. settings. I consider those settings as nice-to-have, in case of an emergency. So, not quite the same light as the old L0D.

    1) Surefire E2E-BK (I got a second one when the discontinued all the incan line)

    2) 4sevens warm/hcri tactical... I have a warm and for a long time I was worried how would I replace it if it should quit working. I was comforted when the HCRI lights came out but now those are disappearing. I'll just have to hope mine doesn't stop.

    3) Surefire P60 handgun light... I want a weapon light but none of them are HCRI yet so this seems like it would be good for a drop-in

    I really liked Leathermans flashlights, especially the Monarch 200. But the bigger ones as well. Cheap and well built.

    I saw that 4Sevens had a RGB-flashlight, I'd love to have one of those.

    Very flat output! And that was more than 7 years ago. 75% of initial output to slightly more than 4 hours is good considering it's runned by alkalines.

    Since it's been five years and eleven months since I last contributed to this thread, it's high time I chose another light for this list (My original choice was the ARC +4).

    I miss the ARC's!!!!!! All of them, the AA, the AAA, the LS, the ARC +4 and most of all the ARC 6.

    All of my ARC collection live in frequent rotation in my EDC regulars (today is my LS First run with flupic) and are my most reliable lights.

    At the risk of repeating myself, here's a shot of my collection:



    (This was before I acquired my ARC6)

    Let me try and clarify what made these lights so special.

    Robust. OK, lots of lights are robust, Surefire, Firstlight, etc. the military grade lights. But ARC lights were great to hold, no rough edges, the top anodized coatings, they just felt right and lasted and lasted. No blisters or shredded pockets or misdesigned protruberances. They were smooth and functional and beautiful.

    Small - as well as the above smooth and sleek features, these lights were small enough for EDC as well as being tough enough for military uses.

    Lanyard anchoring points - well you might think there's not much to say here but the design of the lanyard holes is perfect and strong - I'm sure there is a thread somewhere on this forum where someone mentions using his ARC AAA as a makeshift piton climbing in a cave!!!

    Groundbreaking. Well maybe they were just lucky enough to be at the forefront just as the power leds came out and jumped on the bandwagon - the Lux 1 and 3 as well as the nichias for the AA and AAA.

    Fun. Not only were white lights produced, but any colour of led available from UV through CYAN, BLUE, RED, AMBER, GREEN, and even RGB - in fact I've probably missed several. These were produced directly for torch enthusiasts like me (in fact if anyone has an AMBER LS they'd like to shift???)

    Multi battery types. Any manufacturer has a light for most available battery types, but the powerhouse that was the LS range could be powered by CR123A. 2 AA or AA, just by changing the battery packs. Also electing whether to have twisty or clicky interfaces.

    Reliability - maybe I'm lucky, but all the lights still work as was intended at the factory, and some of these are over ten years old.

    Over and above all these points is utility - these lights just do what is expected from them and no fuss.

    So, I am very very sorry that the ARC line stops at 6. I can only imagine what a 7 and 8 and 9 would be like - wonderful lights, all of them.

    (Just a few more pics!!)





    I haven't seen many ARCS come up recently on BST, I hope this doesn't mean they are all broken or forgotten in a drawer somewhere...

    Nyctophiliac,

    That pic of your Arc collection on the S.T. game board is one of my all time favorites . Great collection, carrying a stock LSL-S today myself.
