I have three McGizmos now and just placed an order for another Mule (along with some other goodies) from Don!
Currently:
1) Lunasol LS20
2) Ti PD Mule
3) Sapphire

On Order:
2) Mule XML

I'm loving the flood of the Mules. I've found a use for all of these lights and my goto EDC has been the Lunasol.

Haiku High CRI - XPG engine sitting unused but at the ready
6V Haiku XML with a 2x123 McClicky Pak

Nice lego - a 2xAA McClicky Pak in bead blast hosting a 6V High CRI Ti Mule Head
And the latest, a nice little McLux III PD-S in aluminum - with datiLED right now getting a warm XML heart transplant and a current bump to 1A

I've added a Sundrop XR-U to the Haiku XP-G and Ti PD-S, and it is amazing! I've never seen anything like the beam from this, it's sort of strange to have this little patch of 'sunlight' in front of you when surrounded by darkness. It really is a pleasure to use!

I know! That's where I got the idea! I should have referenced you as the inventor of that pose, but I wasn't sure it was you. Anyways, your pic is better, and there's an extra clip there. I still have work to do. :help:

Ain't she a beaut?? :kiss:

I know, I need a PD to round out the family, but that might have to wait until tax return time. :broke:

When I bought my Haiku in June, I wasn't exactly planning on buying three more Gizmos in the next three months. :oops:

I'm running out of other lights I can bear to sell for this addiction. :crazy:

Up to 4 now:
1) Haiku XP-G
2) Ti PD-S
3) Sundrop XR-U
4) Sapphire GS

If the Sapphire had been my first McGizmo it probably would have been my last; it had a really ordinary finish on it, with several prominent marks, compared to the flawless finish of the three others I've got. I was disappointed, but given that's it's a keyring light I decided it was redeemable. I polished it up to reduce the markings before putting it on my keys, where's it's getting a nice patina of microscratches now. Don has never claimed his lights are made with cosmetic finishes in mind, but I think we become spoilt by the usually excellent finish. The Sapphire is a hugely useful light though, it's much nicer on the keyring than the 4Sevens Revo SS it replaced, the smooth finish with no knurling is nicer for pocketability and it has very smooth lines. The light output is perfect for reading, both in lumens, beam profile (or lack thereof), and tint. I even prefer the tint to read with over the Sundrop.
Cheers, Matt.

A fine collection you have, especially your modded LunaSols.

I'm confused with the naming of McGizmo's PD and the various LEDs used, wouldn't stoli67's be known as a Ti PD-XML?
