    What LED flashlight is sitting on your nightstand?

    My nightstand drawer is the retirement home for most of my former EDCs (getting pretty full). The two that get used most are my Quark 123 (love the low) and my Fenix TK40 (no I never EDCed this one).

    keeping flashlights 'loaded'

    I have single cell Lithium lights in my cars with spares, and LSD NiMH AA and C cell lights loaded around the house. I have several packs of Alkaline C and D cells stored separately from lights for extended power outages. I don't own any AA alkalines. I will never leave an Alkaline cell in a...

    Who likes the Fenix P1D and why?

    I EDCed a P1D for a while, added a Leef body to it for a while, and have now switched to a Quark 123. I would still be using it today if the lower modes worked with 4.2volt RCRs.

    The MagLed module should work fine. You need to take the plastic bulb holder from the back of the relector, insert the MagLed, pack aluminum foil around the magled to hold it into the reflector and to help conduct heat away. You may need to slightly bend the metal strip that makes contact to...

    My beloved Fulton Anglehead. PIC HEAVY:)

    When I have installed MAG LED upgrades in these I just removed the plastic bulb holder and packed aluminum foil around the bulb base. It's not pretty, but it works.

    do you really need all the lights you have

    I came to the conclusion that 200+ lights were a little much, so I have sold off about hundred lights so far.... I'm convinced that I can get by with as few as 20-30 (in theory). I did just order a TK40:whistle:

    Power outage must have lights

    One vote for EternaLights (up to 700 Hours on three AAs). I keep one loaded with AA Lithiums (along with my hundreds of other lights....). Link to EternaLight Info:

    Still waiting for high quality, 2D alk flashlight...!

    I am another one wishing for updated Pro-Poly Streamlights. In general 3 cell lights (or more) can be the cheapest since they can be either direct drive or resistored down to the LED vf. 2 cells will require a boost circuit. That said here is another 3C alternative (I know it's not 2D)...

    Neat Gravity Powered LED Floor Lamp

    Re: Gravity powered LED light Didn't you notice the fine print that mentioned that this light is designed for operation only on the surface of a Neutron Star, with the assumption that the residents there would be strong enough to lift the weight from the bottom back to the top of the...

    Rayovac sportsman old school

    I just gave away a light just like that at Christmas that I had modded with three Cree's. I love the old "chromies". Here is a link to a thread I started on some of my modded vintage lights.

    Discovered a flashaholic dog in the family!

    Last year I gave various family members modded Mag lights for Christmas including my niece who lives a couple hours away from me. A few months later she mentioned that one of her two dogs really liked carrying around the flashlight I had given her, which seemed a little strange since a 4D Mag is...
