    Fraz Labs Mechanical Flashlights (formerly QTC Non-Battery Crush)

    No pressure (QTC pun intended) , but I can't wait to see a 14500 version of this wonderful design in the future.

    User interfaces killed by feature creep?

    In my happily increasing years, I want it dirt simple. My favorite UI is of the rotary variety.

    TEKNA Splash-Lite

    I hope the XP-C looks better :sick2: Very quick and dirty beamshots. Original 222 Incan, in all its focused glory :) Warm white 222 led : Approximately 2 ft from galley wall. Sorry, no patience at all for photography and it shows.
