    TINI 2 by Nitecore

    Re: TINI2 by Nitecore No you are right. Not sure why it was hard for me to grasp the concept but it really isn't that difficult. It's pretty qquick to get out of lockout, you only have to long press for maybe a second.

    TINI 2 by Nitecore

    Re: TINI2 by Nitecore That's funny, I'm about to go back to the original TINI because I don't like having to put the TINI2 in lockout and struggling to get it out of lockout so it won't come on at the lightest tough. I thought I read the TIP2 no longer had moonlight mode so that did it for me...

    Still looking for perfect night time walking flashlight - Olight Warrior Mini is not

    If one wishes to spend more, the Surefire Guardian looks like a viable option. From beam shots, I like the look of the maxvision LED and the Guardian contains one of those plus a thrower, albeit a bit unorthodox looking. It seems like Surefire doesn't make a cylindrical flashlight with box...

    What does a $150-200 flashlight get you these days?

    Years ago, the Streamlight microstream was my work pocket light. This year for Christmas my nephew asked for a little lantern he could bring out to the outside porch when he was grilling this winter and I picked him up the Streamlight Siege. Seems like a nice little lantern.

    What does a $150-200 flashlight get you these days?

    Back in the early days when the Luxeon's (I probably spelled that wrong) ruled, it seemed like in order to get a really decent LED flashlight, you had to spend $200 and the like (Surefire, etc) and there were limited mainstream manufacturers. I myself bought a couple of McGizmo mods. Now there...

    Still looking for perfect night time walking flashlight - Olight Warrior Mini is not

    Thank you for the suggestion. I'm not up on my flashlights the way I was 10-15 years ago but I'm curious. With lots of fine offerings by Fenix, Nitecore, Olight and others, what is the justification these days in spending $200 for a flashlight? What makes them significantly better than say a...

    TINI 2 by Nitecore

    Re: TINI2 by Nitecore Yes, I'm definitely preferring the pause before engaging that was not carried over from the first Tini. Pretty much every time the light is in my pocket, it turns on. Getting it out of lock mode is tricky. Short press, long press, seems to sometimes work, sometimes not.

    TINI 2 by Nitecore

    Re: TINI2 by Nitecore No I mean the Tini2. With the original you had to hold down the button a bit before the light would activate. Not so with the 2. You can put it in lockout mode but it seems a bit tricky to get it out of lockout mode once engaged./

    TINI 2 by Nitecore

    Re: TINI2 by Nitecore I love mine. The tint is much warmer than the original Tini. But it keeps coming on in my pocket!

    Still looking for perfect night time walking flashlight - Olight Warrior Mini is not

    Thank you for all the nice suggestions. You know the scotch tape does make a difference. Can you buy diffusers of the right diameter that will fit over the flashlight head?

    Still looking for perfect night time walking flashlight - Olight Warrior Mini is not

    My latest flashlight purchase is the Olight Warrior Mini. It's a nice light, certainly the 500 lumens on high is almost always sufficient without the need for 1500 lumen turbo mode but still with a very pronounced hotspot cutoff, still not a very good walking light for my purposes. Good for...

    [Short Review] Olight Array - 400 lumens headlamp

    Thank you for this review even though it was about a year ago. Anybody use this light for running? They have some good weekend deals on this. I know the battery life isn't the greatest but two hours on high would get me thru my run and hopefully I could get by with the 200 lumen mode. Is the...

    Help me choose a running headlamp

    I wanted to offer thanks for the suggestions. Still haven't made a decision. Just know I don't want another front end headlamp. I'm thinking ones with the battery pack in the rear are going to offer a more balanced choice, especially those that use the 18650 or similar batteries.

    Fenix HM61R ticking all the boxes?

    Thanks for the insightful answer. I can see your point. For a running headlamp, the weight distribution would probably better if the battery pack was on the rear. I can see how a headlamp with a battery of that size and everything at the front, would be front heavy, more so then my HL26R.

    Fenix HM61R ticking all the boxes?

    The HM61R seems to be advertised as an all around headlamp. I was looking at reviews online but do you think the beam profile is wide enough to make a good running headlamp? Fenix sure has a ton of headlamps with much overlap.
