I started looking at flashlights at 2007, the first mini led maglite, then I got a inova x1, fenix L2DCE. Two years later I got a Fenix TK40. Two years later (now) I got a Fenix TK70. With the TK70, I got these --

No, you're not nuts ... well, not nuts by CPF standards anyways.

I do have to say that you've got quite a few D's there, lol.

I bought 4xD Accupower LSDs and using alkaline as backup ... but i'm thinking of buying another set for backup. I'm also thinking of your batts as I see some reasonable pricing for 8xD. Maybe put my Accupower as backup instead since they are LSD.

I think you must be pretty reasonable and sane! 2 years between lights? Very reserved :D

I've amassed over 20 lights in a couple of months, that's crazy (just ask my mrs)

Yup, You are nuts
;)

change Your setup to 18650s.
Imho the weight/Size/performance ratio is better

... who is carrying around a D-celled light?
I want so see Your pockets
;) ;)
