    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.

    Mine are older models, and it's purely anecdotal, but my H52 and H600 have endured dozens of falls. Many to concrete and steel surfaces and most greater than 1 meter height.

    TEKNA Splash-Lite

    An attempt at moderation, contentment, and gratitude

    Enjoy your life, enjoy equipment that serves your needs and wants. External validation is another highly overrated fallacy.

    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.
