    Tech leap 2021-banner year or was it?

    I agree, the size of the two battery formats makes a difference. I became aware of LEPs this year - I think that's a definite advancement and a potential "one and done" tool with a built-in or external diffuser.

    Your favorite / best / coolest / nicest flashlight of 2021?

    My best EDC is the ReyLight Pineapple Mini 219B in brass. I like its light, size, style, and that it runs on all kinds of AAA format batteries. I still really like and use the Acebeam TK16 and the Manker E14 III though. It is probably a bit OT, but I feel like I should mention the Victorinox...

    Opinions needed: "keychain light" size?

    This is my keychain with the Sofirn SC01. I find it ideal. Ti would be nice, but I am good. This way I have steel, Alox and Titanium represented. I also have a Vic Traveller Lite and the Cybertool Lite which could be in theory used as key chain tools. I could call that as big as I want to go...

    Is it my imagination or, is this Forum declining?

    Personally this is a seasonal interest, I am more into knives in the summer and more into flashlights in the winter. Now, I would still like a Fraz labs light and maybe even a LEP some day, but I have enough lights for every use and every type of battery and I am more interested in maintaining...

    Lumen creep

    Get a light that is more of a thrower IMO, instead of chasing lumens, if you want to stand in one spot and scan your spaces.

    How old is you EDC flashlight?

    I have two SC01 Sofirns on my keychains that are about half a year old and my bigger lights are a year old at most. I had four i3E Olights that I recently sold for not being used (I only used one really), they were about three yo. I also EDC a couple of Petzl e+Lite headlamps that are about...

    What do you use a flashlight for the most?

    A lot of frequent uses, when I think about it. Going by duration, the Sofirn BLF LT1 as a nightlight must be my most used one. At the dimmest and warmest setting, it will last forever on a single charge. Runner ups: - for photography, Nichia EC65 Acebeams, - Convoys as utility lights...

    Buy a super bright flashlight

    Manker MK41 (4xAA) if you need throw (or slap on a diffuser). It's pretty awesome, I love mine, bright yes, compact, not really. My Armytek A2 Prime Pro (2xAA) and my Olight i5T are more compact for EDC, but not super bright.

    Beam width

    I suggest simply watching a bunch of YT reviews by Flashacolic (who is also a member here) and by others too, to get a sense of beam profiles at various distances. With your budget you should have no problem finding something good. Let us know how you go.

    How low do you go ??

    I am careless - I leave it to the LVP to tell me the time is up and I charge everything with the Auto setting with my Vapcell S4 Plus. Samsung 21700-40T is prevalent. But these are all mostly used at home, no big deal if/when they are getting depleted.

    How do you explain this Hobby?

    Maybe start with the concept of EDC and its main components? What use is a knife when you can't see what you are cutting?
