    Opinions on HDS flashlights.

    I have a couple new HDS lights, a rotary and a clicky. They are dependable and built to industrial-usage standards. They do not seem like a great value, until you hold one in your hand and use it regularly. The latest 320 lm versions address some of the output concerns. IMO, the HDS lights are...

    Mechanic flashlight

    I use a headlamp and a few flashlights, but 95% of the time I'm in my garage with access to 120V and use an AC LED light!

    Help me choose my next flashlight 2020

    Love my PD36R. It does not tail-stand! I don't have a TK22 but don't believe it tail stands either.

    EMISAR D4V2 TI QUAD 18650

    I'm loving this Ti/Cu light with Samsung battery, magnetic tailcap, clip and upgraded emitter for less than $100. The interface is easy to set-up and it is a strikingly beautiful light and IMO a great light for the $$! Of course the standard issue D4V2 in grey is a pretty light, and a screaming...

    Sold/Expired WTB: HDS Rotary or Clicky 325 with Flush Button and Sapphire Lens.

    Either of the LED emitters will be fine, thanks. Prefer Black bezel and universal clip, but these are not a necessity.

    Looking for a new EDC for work

    When I did this work I had a Streamlight Litebox and a Streamlight UltraStinger, both with charging cradles in my truck. My pocket EDCs included a Streamlight Microstream and Streamlight ProTac 2L. I also kept a couple of Streamlight Headlamps in my truck. Be safe out there.

    Best way to storing an LED flashlight in a pouch?

    Bezel down. It offers more protection for the lens, and to me it's more natural to remove and utilize. I see no advantage to lens up storage.

    Comments from non-flashoholics that really annoy you.

    I occasionally get, "You always have a pocket knife and flashlight, why it's light out? Well, I carry a pocket knife because I'm a man and i might need to cut or fix something. And, it gets dark here most nights and I might need to illuminate something to better align my shots. "You carry a...

    Emisar D4V2 and HDS Rotary 325...

    After being a flashlight geek for 40+ years, I dropped out of the enthusiast loop for the last 10 years or so. Now that I've recovered, I've purchase a dozen or so new lights: RovyVons, Fenixs, Emisars, and an HDS EDC Rotary 325. I love my PD36R, my Rovyvons and Emisar D4V2s (One Al, one Ti) and...
