The cell has "2004" printed on it. Im just surprised the battery still holds a charge considering its almost 2 decades old.

Are those TerraLux kits still available anywhere?
The terralux kit was from around 2012. They went out of business in 2020. There are probably some kits left at eBay or Amazon.
200 lumens? Can't say they are but it's cool tinted beam sure looks brighter than the Strion bulb does.

I think it's time to admit that - Yes, I am a collector. There's really no other reason for purchasing such as this -

S l1600


This is Foursevens one and only production spotlight. There are 18 CREE XM-L2 LEDs powered by 28 18650 batteries, producing 15,000 lumens. It has four modes, current regulation, and a built in cooling fan.

I'm Chauncey Gardiner, and this is my new illuminator.

I've ordered the Foursevens Quark QK2A MKIII in slate blue. Seems like a nice color and wanted another 2xAA light in my collection and EDC rotation. Meanwhile I'm still waiting for the new 2021 Mini ML MkIII which still has some issues Jason / Darksucks is getting resolved. So when this comes in I at least have another quality Foursevens light to play with 😁

I just ordered a new incan minimag aa in midnight blue for $10 and change. I am very happy with the glass lens I bought for my led minimag so I ordered one for the incan as well.

Today is a good day.

I got my malkoff VME head with an M31W. The M31W has slightly more of a rosy tint than all my M61W’s. It looks wonderful, best tinted LED I have now. I also got a nice laser products 6P with what seems to be the original P60. :)

Good score on the round 6p Megal.

I'm at the point with flashlights where I was with cameras a few years back. It got where every 90 days there was the next version of an item and it reached a point where what I had was good enough for my uses.

With cameras it got where about the only time I took a photo was a picture of words on a label so I could enlarge the photo in order to read the words more easily. In time a small flashlight brightened up the words so I no longer used the cameras at all.

With flashlights these I have been mostly sitting on the sidelines watching lumen wars and now tint wars do what they do while enjoying the stuff in my quiver from pre-2019. The potential SureFire EDC DFT in 2 cell is a blip on my radar but it'll probably be March before that one is easy to find. By then some will have written the what's what about those.

Reason I like the idea of the 2 cell is it's stated output is a mere 550 lumens with a twisty head allowing it to idle at 25 lumens. With the famous SureFire optic it is said to produce a laser like hot spot with a gentle spill so I could potentially morse code Mrs Fixer from another zip code asking "want string beans or mashed potato's with supper tonight?" without it getting so hot it feels like I'm carrying a hand grenade with the pin pulled like that EDCL-2T does.

Hadn't bought new (or new to me) lights in a while, but got the urge on stuff that I'd been wanting, searching for. Probably take a break again? We'll see 😅

I finally received a old Fenix HL55
The shipment was problematic I only received it now (ordered at the end of September) but the headlamp is nice., neutral tint, probably 5000K
Comparing it with HL60R, the HL60R looks yellowish, the HL55 is perfectly white.
I like how I get the Turbo, from any level you do a long press on the button, when it is no longer necessary with a short press you go back to the previous level.
