    Manufacturer Grades_Who makes what level of quality.

    +1 however, let's play along and allow me to humbly offer my lists (only lights that I have handled or use before... and I may miss a few brand names...) Superior - none, or rather, any brand and any light that is with my person when I need it most! Consistently Good - Elzetta - Malkoff - HDS...

    is anyone future proofing against 'too-powerful' lights?

    @mickb, you are not alone... these are mine... simple and not blinding... I initially thought the E05 may not live beyond 2 years on my keychain, so I haul up as many as I could without raising suspicious to my better half, but my first E05 lasted 4+ years, and my second E05 is showing no sign...

    I use flashlight app only when I'm in cinema even though I have between 3 to 5 EDC lights with me whenever I'm not at home... so that I blend-in and doesn't look weird to other movie goers...

    Olight 2016

    Hi John, you can minimize the damage by taping the place where the clip contact the body where-ever you can with masking tape, and then just pull the clip away... see below gif... note that there will always be some small scratches, and anodizing on the edges of the body will be first to go...

    Olight 2016

    Olight 2016 (second half, that is...) Was contacted by local flashlight dealer back in July whether I'm interested to test a couple of flashlights with direct Q&A with the manufacturer Olight, in exchange, to share my user experience with the community... hey, how can I say no to...

    My Son's new book light

    :thumbsup: Agreed. That's why I start him young... with a NIB G2 ~3-4 years ago with constant supervision whenever he is playing with it. :kiss: It's the only "plastic-light" I could find and trust that can withstand his abuse without leaving anyone around him bruises or cuts (including...

    Flashlight stops bullet, anyone know what kind of flashlight this is?

    hmmm... that looks like a 2-in-1 zoomable Flashlight + Lantern. Pictured below is my unit. Bought it a year or 2 ago. A few more pictures: It's a 3 x AAA light, 3 modes in cycle, high - low - strobe, reverse clicky. The switch boot is big. I'm not sure if it's the same make and...

    Surefire C3 17500's and McClicky problems

    I remember AW replied to my queries some years ago that he do not recommend using 2 x P17500 with P91, as the cells can't supply the required current to power P91, 2 x P18500 (bored host) or 2 x P17670 (with extender) is the minimum recommended. P90 is perfectly fine with 2 x P17500 tho... :)...

    Brite Strike APALS Air

    reviving an old thread... :nana: recently get my hands on a couple of these, was thinking it's a good replacement for "glow-stick" (chemical or battery-powered), but after testing, these are much better than that and it's in a league of its own. Given the low cost, I'm impressed by the value...

    Some Diffuser Film, DIY

    @tam17, you are right, thinner film doesn't necessarily has better translucency, I think the design (opacity and pattern) of the film does. I also forgot to take a pic with the scotch tape I have, #4 above is slightly better than the scotch tape. :)
