Freakin' IlluminationSupply has some special edition Preon 2 with a Nichia 219. I haven't bought a flashlight in months and they had to release something like that. So, final flashlight purchase (yeah right) of 2013 is a FourSevens Preon 2 with a Nichia 219 LED.

I'll just skip lunch for a few days to make up the difference. haha

Too early to say.

Right you are. Even now, I can't be sure. But I'm not planning any more this year, unless something totally amazing is brought to my attention. My last purchase of 2013 is likely to be a SS MBI HF with XM-L2 5000k and blue trits. I think it is a fitting end to an amazing year for lights.

Fenix TK75.

You are going to love it. One of my earlier purchases, and still one of the very best all-rounders in existence. Amazing throw, even stock (current boosted and de-domed, it is crazy) and bright spill too. Can run on turbo for 20 minutes, too (or until cells give out if you re-engage turbo) - a rare thing these days. If I had to choose only one light, the TK75 would be in the running for sure.

Got a olight t20 from going gear a couple weeks ago, absolutely love this light BTW, its super light and simple and the glow in the dark boot cover is awesome...that'll be the last one I buy for '13. But there is always Christmas, and I did give my girlfriend the password to my goinggear.com wish list

the last whole light purchase, which should be delivered today. Is probably the Fivemega Bored/machined/chromed 4D M*g458 with 3V head.

Although I have a M*g85 and a M*g 1.25D 10w HID that might be purchased on the 27th. So in theory it could be those.

Thought it was going to be my tan SWM M11R, but it's actually going to be the 1xAAA Olight i3s in blue, which might be here today.

Yesterday I pulled the trigger for a Nitecore EA4 neutral and an Armytek Viking 2.5 Neutral. I think it will be the last purchase this year.

I actually just picked up a really cheap knockoff of a Skyray King made by SecurityIng, and I have to say that I am really impressed. For $35 shipped from Indianapolis, I wish I had bought 4 of them. This thing is close to as bright as my TK75. A lot more spill, a lot less throw, and much dimmer hotspot, but for $35, I think I may have a new favorite light.

FourSevens Prion 2 with Nichia 219B.
L10 (3 mode) with a Nichia 219. (have a 4 mode version and got tired of the extra twisting)

Five "9 Led/3 AAA" pack of lights for $7. came with 15 "Heavy Duty" AAA batteries that I can feed to my E01.


Talked myself out of a TK21 that I saw on clearance.

A second Fenix E35, plus a couple of batteries and a waterproof battery box that holds two 18650 batteries.
