    What was the last LED light you purchased and why?

    Olight Warrior X Pro Camo because I need a bit of throw and simple operation.

    Manker LAD, a new 219c option, alternative to the Tip?

    My Manker Lad is definitely like the top pic. It must be the earlier version. Shouldn't take much to correct it though when I get a chance.

    Manker LAD, a new 219c option, alternative to the Tip?

    I just bought the Manker Lad 219c to replace my Nitecore Tip cool white keychain light. I like the Nitecore tip, but the accidental activation is really killing it's usefullness for me and I am not a fan of the cool white. I bought the tip on preorder and no hi cri version was available at...

    keychain flashlight EDC

    My new keychain light is the Nitecore Tip which is replacing the Nitecore Tube. So far so good with this light and it has a lot of output for it's size. I plan to get a Tip CRI 5000k version later on.

    Your Favourite Zebralight and Why ???

    I just bought a H52fw just because I wanted to try an even smaller light than my H600's and I have a bunch of extra aa rechargeables that aren't being used for anything. I received it Saturday afternoon and went out for a 4 mile hike Saturday night. It worked great and finished the 4 miles on...

    Your Favourite Zebralight and Why ???

    It's a Nitefighter BT40s neutral white bike light. Here is a link to it on gearbest. http://m.gearbest.com/bicycling-gear/pp_180805.html?currency=USD&gclid=CKfktcL_4M4CFdNbhgodejIGwQ I bought mine off amazon last year lighthead only for 29.99 as I already had battery packs. Uses the...

    Your Favourite Zebralight and Why ???

    My favorite is the H600w because it has enough throw to use as a helmet light when cycling. I use it along with a 1400 lumen neutral white floody bar light and the H600w reaches out beyond the bar light and they blend together well. Then when hiking at night or just general headlamp use I...

    Zebralight SC600Fd III Plus - XHP50

    I'll be keeping my eye out for this light too. It sounds like a good one. As far as the Armytek claims they are LED theoretical lumens, just watch the beginning of this youtube video and the Armytek spokesman states the actual output of the new Wizard is about 1,600...

    Review of the new Sunwayman T16R.

    Sounds like this light has a beam similar to the Zebralight H602w that I own. It's all flood and it does it very well. Oh course the H602 is also a headlamp so it becomes more useful than a handheld all flood light. I love the beam on my H602w and use it nearly every day. It is only useful...

    last purchase and I want it to be a good one

    I hear what you are saying and if it is really a humid foggy night, I just take a Zebralight headlamp and put the strap around my waist like a belt and use it as awaist light. It works really well this way and helps you to see trail detail and roots. I go a bit overkill sometimes and do a...

    last purchase and I want it to be a good one

    The best main light for camping/trail/hiking would be a good neutral white headlamp. Zebralight, Fenix, Nitecore, Armytek, etc. make some decent headlamps in the 1,000 lumen range and run $100 or less. Along with that I would bring a flashlight with more throw. For myself, I don't need a huge...

    Blast resistant == really tactical

    I think this flashlight should be described as spark proof and not explosion proof. As far as impact resistance it is minimal with only 1.5 meters.

    Single mode lights - what advantage?

    I like these types of lights too. My favorite UI for a light that hides it's lower modes is Armytek where you are always just on hi unless you loosen the head to get to lower modes, but I leave mine tightened all the time. My co worker who borrows my Armytek Predator Pro has no idea it has...

    Cell phone's camera flash LED as a light anyone?

    I have one of the cheapo LG flip phones with no flash and I use my phone as just a phone. It's a $5 phone with $10/month service lol. I haven't seen the need to pay for one of them fancy phones yet with a flash so I carry flashlights with me for light. I have a real small keychain light...

    Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a definitely fan!

    Re: Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a defintely fan! Cool, I'm glad it worked for you too. I can't take credit for the idea, I read about how to do it from someone either on these forums or maybe budgetlightforums or another forum. Can't remember, but it's a great bit of information so I...

    Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a definitely fan!

    Re: Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a defintely fan! There is no risk of burning your forehead as the silcone holder is still in place and protects your head just as much as the other routing. The band is the only thing touching the lamp, but in my experience the lamphead doesn't get hot...

    Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a definitely fan!

    Re: Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a defintely fan! I actually emailed Zebralight about the stability improvement when routing the headband this way and they indicated that this has been brought up in the past and they will pass the info along. Also it was indicated that they may consider...

    Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a definitely fan!

    Re: Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a defintely fan! Those loops will easily accommodate the band through there as well and the light itself and it hasn't made it any harder to put the light in or take out of the band. The loops haven't stretched out a bit on mine, they hold everything firm...

    Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a definitely fan!

    Re: Just got my first ZebraLight. I'm a defintely fan! Congrats on the new Zebralight GPS Rider, it's an awesome light. I would recommend you consider rerouting the headband so that the main band goes through the front rings that hold the lamp. It makes the light head much more stable and...

    *NEW* 2016 Fenix Lights

    The 1 meter impact resistance says to me, the light manufacturer doesn't have much faith in their light if dropped and then can use that rating as a way of not honoring their warranty. I killed 2 lights that I can remember from dropping them. Neither were high end or pricey. One was a 2aa...
