.... and what is the deal with this obsession?

I started collecting the incandescent Maglite solitares back in the 90s. I liked the little size and the fact they were higher quality and can be used for a keychain light. I didn't even realize the flashoholic symptoms back then, but yes, I had a problem. :sweat:

So that model is the one that I own the most of. I have like 7 of them. We are talking 14 beautiful lumens combined!!!!! WoW !!

Then I found this forum and everything changed. So I've added extensively to my collection and I think my runner up is the Fenix E05 ... I have 3 blackies and 2 stainless. 3rd place goes to the Sunwayman C20C .... 4 of them.

I figure if one is good, 4,5,6 or 7 is better!! :touche: Am I right??


You ??

7 Coast HP7 lights. One of each model in available color(s).

Woulda been 9 but the pair of LED Lenser-Coast HP 7's I bought online were stolen property and ended up becoming confiscated by the US gov't.

Now I did not know that when I bought them.

But tbh I do not know how many mini mags I have. I started to say 10, but remembered the one in the garage, the one in my briefcase and all those aaa ones...15? 20?... I prefer the incan with drop ins.


Wait, just remembered a couple more mini mags....

When i first started looking into LED flashlight, i got a few tektite lights and got some for the kids. Over the years, they didn't like the twist interface and have give the lights back to me, I figure i have about 8 of those including the aluminum versions. Thats the most of any lights i think.

Speaking of meandering, I now have a few of those Coast 3XAAA 12XLED lights that no one wants and they go to my "flashlight shelf". I have at least three of those now. I hate those things, but the low output is good for the baby who likes to look into the beams. I usually put in some weak batteries and she is good to look into them. Perhaps i can find a way to modify them so they only use one battery and are always low.

The second wave was finding some Leupold lights on clearance that i had one of the models for. Since they were being discontinued, i bought as many as my budget would allow. Between the two models, i probably have 5 or 6 of those. I was looking into modding them, but the upcoming baby has stopped such decadent projects...

Other than that, i usually buy back up lights for lights i really like. I have a BLF A6 and two on the way. So 3 total, but at least one of those will probably wind up being a gift.

I think i now have two Convoy C2s, three if you count the one i bought the wife. I'll probably get some more of those for gifts and will probably wind up with a couple more in the process.

I have a few AA mini mags, but some of them are damaged by alkaleak batteries.

In the future, I'll probably get a couple PD35s to back up the one i already have, but not at normal price...

I own a dozen E01's or so, scattered here and there. I have a problem with SF C2's as well, seven at last count. Two Crosshair, one Oveready Fire red, and four "users"...

wow, magellan, good taste.

My first flashlight was a Maratac AAA. I have purchased 10 since joining CPF, 9 Cu, Vinh modded 3, 2 of those and 3 stock I gave away, so gifted 5. Anyway, this is why 2 is really 1.

Thanks!

My Maratac AAA stainless is a regular EDC light for me. I love the copper ones too but they are shelf queens. And I just got two titaniums now that they're back in stock.

Just noticed the sale is still on for the pre-production run on the Ti's so ordered two more.

I like Mags too. Here's about 2/3 of my collection of AA's and a few AAA's, which includes several rare colors and patterns (like the weinrot or wine red, shimmer blue, dark orange, copper, charcoal, and light pink):

Quite a lineup of Ku's and Veleno's you have there. I have one of each but don't have all the trit colors you have. About the only thing I don't see is a Dogbone.
