I got my new L0Dce and from what I can tell so far it will replace my P1Dce for EDC. Reasons being, it is extremely small and light weight. With the clip you can drop it in a front shirt pocket beside a pen and not know its there. You can easily pop it out and turn it on in one motion. Another advantage is the batteries, AAA for this light are so small you can easily pocket an extra one.

With my P1D I always unscrew the twisty a least a half turn, to not run the risk of it turning on accidental, I do this mainly because of cost of batteries and also the twist is not as nice as the L0D, so when I go to turn on the P1D it basically takes 2 hands because of the longer required twist.

With the L0D I have found that it has a very sure/easy twist, in that when I turn it of, I go past off just slightly, making it very easy for one handed ON operation. Also the fact that its running on cheap AAA Duracell I don't care if it would turn on, however it hasn't yet and don't think it will. Also put 2 wraps of Tommy tape or similar around bottom of light, making it bite friendly. And dont underestimate the value of it being able to stand on its tail, this is very handy in some situations.

With a 10440 Ultrafire in the LOD and very unscientific testing inside and outside it is very similar to my P1Dce . For every day use Duracell rechargeable are perfect and cheap. For the fact that it (lod) is so tiny and nearly as bright as the P1Dce it has some serious wow factor. My son was so impressed with it compared to the pid he immediately ordered one. This appears to be a great EDC light with enough throw and spill to cover most lighting situations. Discreetly drop in a 10440 and you will seriously impress or depress other flashlight carrying buddies. Ya , for me it definatly is the new EDC champ.

cheers

I think I'll order one, but am concerned about ruining 10440s in it.

Not supposed to run them below 2.5V, and I can see this getting dim much lower than that, so really 10440s would be functioning like disposable batteries -- ruin them one after another.

Well to me using 10440's will probably be a temporary situation. Once I've thoroughly impressed myself and a few buddies, I'll probably stop using them. Duracell 1000 rechargeable's are perfect for this light, you really don't need more, trust me its bright.

cheers

I've already bought eneloops for mine, which seem to be top-of-the-line, and are on sale for $2 each at HHGregg now. Bought the 4 battery charger ($18), will sell the AAs for ~$12, and there's a coupon for 2 free AAAs when you buy the eneloop charger. (see battery forum)
