    HDS Systems #23

    It’s understandable but would be quite sad. I do think HDS sits atop the flashlight world… this is because of Henry. The company should have value if Henry does decide to focus on other pursuits; in The first sale, the purchase by Novatac was welcomed by me and while Novatac was very good but it...

    SUREFIRE EDCL-2T

    If you can say, what is the runtime on high with this setup? I would like to know because this sounds like a good setup. I have been using an RCR123 from Olight in my EDCL1T and that works good for around 25-35 minutes on high before it’s lights out… the EDCL1T seems really finicky about what...

    SUREFIRE EDCL-2T

    The Surefire rechargeable cells cut the already short runtimes in half… I have a number of them and wish they were double their capacity… also, mine will not light the high on my EDC1LT😫

    Single Cell CR123A Lights: What do you use?

    You might be interested in trying the Tactician head on a Malkoff MDC body using rechargeables… it is an awesome setup. The Maxvision beam is, from my perspective, superb and with Efest flattop 16430’s, IIRC, I get >300 lumens for 45 minutes. Low works great also when needed. For my use, this...

    Recommendations for micro USB-C keychain light

    Nitecore Tini 2 and Fenix E03R are options you might like. between the two, I like the Nitecore but it is close. If you need or want red, then the Fenix is your huckleberry. the UI, the battery meter, and the floody beam on the Nitecore win me over

    Very Happy… Surefire Tactician + Malkoff MDC + Efest IMR Flat Top Battery

    it works identical to the way that the Tactician head works on a Surefire body, by loosening the head a bit. I am smitten with the Maxvision beam profile and the output in this configuration is just spectacular! It makes my 325 Lumen HDS look a bit anemic. It ran for an awful long time also… I...

    More Happiness… Malkoff MDC + KeepPower 3.0V RCR123

    The MDC is so very nice to me with perfectly spaced levels and good runtimes. It’s also surprisingly lightweight and apparently rugged. I am a big HDS fan but am surprised at how much I like the MDC. I do wish that that the body could accept an 18mm cell but I also wish the HDS lights did as...

    More Happiness… Malkoff MDC + KeepPower 3.0V RCR123

    I charged them through the mini USB so I could not tell what voltage they cut off at. There was no visible change in the brightness throughout the >50 minutes… my guess is that it was the same output. I ran an MDC on medium and did not even get 6 hours… that was disappointing and I plan on...

    More Happiness… Malkoff MDC + KeepPower 3.0V RCR123

    I did a quick runtime test and got >50 minutes on high before the protection circuit kicked in and cut the light off… I compared the output against my HDC Executive on high (250 Lumens) and found the output, even at 45 minutes was equal to or better than the HDS. That’s not too shabby if you ask...

    More Happiness… Malkoff MDC + KeepPower 3.0V RCR123

    I had to share this also… I’m thrilled also with the Malkoff MDC + the KeepPower 3.0V RCR123 battery. I love the Malkoff but could not stand that I could not use rechargeable batteries… I just don’t love not knowing how full my battery is and I never can remember when I am using primaries. The...

    Very Happy… Surefire Tactician + Malkoff MDC + Efest IMR Flat Top Battery

    The Tactician head fits perfectly on the MDC body and works perfectly to give both a high and low beam. I was able to get around 30 minutes at something better than ~325 lumens with the Efest battery. I shut the light down when it looked like the output was dropping below ~325 Lumens and this...

    What was the last LED light you purchased and why?

    Surefire Minimus and Maximus… had to get them. I have had and used the 100 Lumen Saint Minimus version and loved it. The new one really called to me so I answered the call. The Maximus was an impulse buy and I added it when I bought the Minimus.

    Single Cell CR123A Lights: What do you use?

    I primarily carry an HDS Executive and occasionally a Surefire EDCL1-T.

    Single Cell CR123A Lights: What do you use?

    You are my hero! The MDC is such a great light but it was really hampered by the limitation to primaries. I tried Surefire rechargeables but the would not permit low to be low. The on board charger makes this excellent also so that the batteries can charge using a usb cable. Awesome!

    Replacement O-Ring For Surefire E1L Outdoorsman

    Does anyone know the size o-ring that I need to get to replace on on my E1L? I tried Home Depot and a #13 looked to be the right diameter but it was too thick and would not let the head screw down to the body enough for the battery to make contact.
