Hey everyone! I was just wondering something. How many lights do you EDC? You can include a keychain light if you have one on your keychain. My wife makes fun of me and maybe I am a little over the top, but I always have three (3) lights on me. :devil: A Titanium Innovations Ti CA1 on my keychain, my HDS 170t in my right front pocket on the bezel down clip, and either a Fenix LD10 or my Quark Turbo Limited edition Ti S3 in their holsters on my belt beside my Leatherman Charge. Usually I kinda forget about my keychain light, so I'm always only mindful of my HDS and my belt light, but bottom line is, I still always carry 3 lights. Poking fun at this flashaholic is fine and permitted but I still want to know what you all EDC! Thanks and Happy New Year to everyone! :wave:

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

(Wow, all posts gone - following is a repost of what I originally posted on 1/8/11)

Neck chain (usually under my shirt): 38DD
Jeans key pocket: LiteFlux LF2X (w/10440) clipped to it, riding inside pocket with clip outside
Jeans right pocket: HDS Ra Clicky 170T (w/16340) with flat button tailcap, riding inside pocket with clip outside
Keychain: 4Sevens Quark Mini 123 (w/16340), removable via McGizmo 25mm gate clip
Keychain backup: Photon Microlight II, via small split ring
Coat pocket (or backpack in summer): JetBeam Jet-III M R2 (w/18650)
Coat inside pocket: ZebraLight H501w on a davidt1 type shoelace neckband/headband
Backpack: iTP A1 EOS (w/16340)
Backpack: iTP A3 EOS Upgrade Edition, Blue (w/L92)
Backpack and inside coat pocket: accessories: spare batteries (primary and rechargeable), diffusers, clips

I realize that I'm seriously deficient in lights - need some for left pants and coat pockets, tiny one for wallet, ... :D

Three years ago, all I had was the Photon. Two years ago I got the LF2X, ran across CPF in the process, something burrowed into my mind, and now look what happened ... :broke: :shakehead

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

Man this thread got cut down a little since I last saw it.

I don't EDC anything since I gave away my Fenix E01 as an emergency Christmas present; currently, the closest thing to an EDC is my glovebox light, a 6PL with Malkoff M61WLL

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

Lately VanIsleDSM Quad 5.6A R4 (3 level) in a Oveready HA Natural 6P with FETtie in a conceleco holster, back pocket a Oveready M2-50 (Neutral) on a 6P. If I've got my computer bag with me that opens up a lot more - always the L1 running on a AA and the flavour of the week (Ti 2xAA Pak, Ti VME head with M31W)

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

My EDC rotates often, because I like pretty much all of my lights, but some are used more than others. This is my most standard setup currently.

Normally this is my EDC setup (freetime and wearing jeans at work)
Jeans coin pocket: Fenix E05 or iTP EOS A3 upgrade
Jeans right pocket: Zebralight SC51W or Quark MiNi AA
Coat inside pocket: (Changes the most) Olight T10/T15 or Fenix L1T or other nice light (whatever I feel like carrying or expect to need).
Coat left pocket: Some spare Fauxtons (DX) to give away.
Keychain: Fenix E01 blue and Photon MicroLight II and eGear Pico Zipper Lite
Messenger bag / Laptop bag: Led Lenser P3

While wearing my business suit:
Jacket inside pocket: Small light like Quark MiNi AA or iTP A3 or Fenix E05
No other lights except for the ones in my coat and bag.

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

I EDC 2 lights 99% of the time. I carry a Quark AA R5, regular UI, tactical tail, deep carry clip, & run it on a 14500 Li-ion. I also carry a Fenix LD01 on my keychain & run it on a eneloop or sometimes a lithium primary.

When I go camping or on vacation is when it gets ridiculous. When camping I EDC a Zebralight SC60 or maybe a Quark AA2 or maybe a Quark with the 18650 body...all these choices are for increased runtimes over my Quark AA. I also throw in my EagleTac M3C4 XM-L and my Olight M30 for power. I have a wife & 3 kids, and carry several lights for them too which includes our quarks & zebralights.

Two lights here. The LF2XT is in the pocket and the Arc AAA is on the keychain. If I have a coat the SC50w+ might sneak into its pocket.

Normally 2.
A ZebraLight H50 and a SC60w(Left front pocket).
Before I got the SC60 I carried a Jet III Mw in a holster.

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

Usually 2-3 lights. I have a watch battery style led on my keys. In my left front pocket I rotate between a lumapower incendio v3+, lumapower trust 1, or a fenix pd31. On my EDC pack I keep an eagletac t20c2 mkII. Also in the pack I have spare 123 primaries, rcr123, 18650's and 14500's. Oh, and the GT kit for the incendio is in the pack as well.

Zebralight SC51 or DST TLR in "flashlight pocket" of pants
Preon REVO SS on my keychain (rotates with a Maratac AAA and a IlluminaTi AAA)

1 or 2.
Currently, in my pocket, is my Moddoo Triple v3.10 Neutral in a Z44 bezel on a TL-34 body with a Z49 McClicky hard-press running on an AW IMR 18350! Quite a Lego there, I know.

Included in my rotation, I have a 9P bored body with 2x 18500s for when I want longer runtime on my triple. HDS high cri clicky. Surefire L1 soon to get an XM-L. An LX2. And an aluminium macs sst50 on the way :)

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

Currently EDC 2 lights on me, a Quark 123 in my right front pants pocket and a Maratac AAA on my keys.

Though in my jacket I have a Quark 123^2 and in my Maxpedition Proteus I have a Quark AA and Quark AA^2.

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

I EDC a EO3 on my keychain, Preon 2 without clicky in my back right pocket and also during the summer a fenix ld20 in my front left pocket lens up and in the winter either the LD20 in the coat pocket or a 18650 light depending on the day.

Re: How many lights do you EDC?

Depends on whether I'm at work or not.

If I'm on duty, it's 3 - Streamlight SL20 in the squad car, SF 6P with a Malkoff M61 drop in mounted on my rifle, and a SF E2D LED Defender on my belt.

If off duty, just 1, a SF E1B in my pocket.
