    I just need one good flashlight

    I have an L3 illumination L08, and a Fenix LD12... Beyond needing to clean the threads of the L08 from time to time, I've had no issues with either light.

    L3 Illumination L10 failed...TWICE!

    OK, I now my L08 has stated to get all kinds of wonky on me. If I bump it on something and give it a good jolt, while it's on, it either skips modes or goes completely dead. After an hour or so with the battery out, the light will begin to function normally, until I bump it or drop it again...

    L3 Illumination L10 failed...TWICE!

    That is horrible luck... I've EDC'd the L08 version for a while now without any issues, and I recommend it all the time... A cheap alternative (I recommend this light all the time too) is the Shiningbeam Spark neutral tint, and buy a single AA parts tube to go with it. Total of about $32, and...

    Zoomable / focusable lights - anything better out there?

    I adore zoom lights, just not the ones made by Led Lenser. I got a Romisen RC-29 at shiningbeam a year or so ago, they have a newer LED in them now, nice light, low price, only one level though... but absolutely amazing for looking at the ground while walking at night, lookin' for...

    AA flashlight recommendation needed

    What is she going to use it for? I have an E40, it's a rather awesome light. On par with a 2d maglite, doesn't throw quite as far, but the beam is wider, and it throws plenty far enough. But do you need throw or flood? ....if you want a more floody beam ShiningBeam's Caveman 2aa XM-L is on...

    High output LED Flashlights that run on AA,AAA batteries that won't break the bank?

    L3 illumination makes some affordable lights, I adore my L08 I got from SBflachlights, but I assume the L10 would be more practical for most people. Fenix is a fair bit cheaper than Surefire ...if Fenix isn't in your price range, Shiningbeam has lights on clearance. His Caveman 2AA light is...

    Inspecting Manholes

    A fenix E40 is like using a mirror to reflect sunlight. I used one for the longest time when I was poking around in factories doing inspection stuff 4 AAs, 17,500cd is damn hard to beat, it's rating of 200 lumens is very misleading. Like the Streamlight Vinniec5 recommended; these are very...

    Long Camp in Extreme Cold Weather

    If you are using L91 Lithium primary cells (and not 14500 Li-Ion 3.7 volt) then you can get a Fenix LD10, LD12, LD20, or LD22, and one of those "lampshades" they sell. Or you could just make your own lampshade, and save some money. Edit: I looked up the "Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries"...

    Big newbie Lf a brand new EDC light

    The bigger the battery, the bigger the commitment to safety. I think all newbies should stick to AAs or AAAs A fenix LD10 with an R5 is a good starter light, and will blow the mind of anyone that grew up with maglites.

    Bright, easy, safe light for a 5-yr old girl in a campground, Amazon Prime, <$20?

    Re: Bright, easy, safe light for a 5-yr old girl in a campground, Amazon Prime, <$20? Romisen lights are just about perfect for these situations. I bought mine from shiningbeam's website, but I assume amazon has them too.
