Mmmm... I love me some CR2 action! :twothumbs Nice lights, Donn, and great thread topic!

Here are my favorites:

PhotonFanatic's Tasklight I & II

And also one of my most used lights (next to a non-CR2 light), TB's CR2 Kroll floodlight:

Lovin' these lights! :thumbsup:

Donn, could you list the lights that you have in the photo? Are some of those finishes custom done?

jch, what is the difference in finish/materials between the tasklight 1 and 2?

Listing added to initial post.

A few of the finishes are custom.

Thanks Donn. Absolutely love that blue swirl ion. Saw the sales thread from awhile back. Would kill to get my hands on any of those custom anno'd ones.

Hint Hint to anyone who'd be willing to part with one. ;)

I don't mean to torture you. My EDC for the past two years has been the Aeon, but I may swap in the Ti Ion, because the beam is so much more friendly. I have cataracts in both eyes, and until they are fixed, I frequently need light for things like poking around in closets and other close work. The Aeon is too much of a thrower. The Ions have a flood beam which is much more useful for close work.

No worries! :thumbsup: Sorry to hear about the cataracts. I have relatives that had them so I understand. Probably the only place to pick up one of the anno'd ions would be the Custom BST right?

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier! :wave:

Tasklight I (on the left - dull) is bare aluminum, Tasklight II (on the right - shiny) is electroless nickel plated Al. The TL2 is still available here. The TL1 was limited to just one copy. :laughing:

:thumbsup: john

Hey John,

No worries! Thanks for getting back to me. I've seen the regular task light on Fred's website. Just got my first Photonfanatic lights (two killers). I definitely love the knurling on the Tasklight. Excellent choice! Can't wait to place a custom order with Fred one day.

I have only 4 CR2 lights, from left to Right:


  • 47's CR2 Mini
  • Peak CR2 Pacific?
  • My CR2 Clicky version of the "Clone" of Mac's Custom EDC. Stainless steel with clip taken from 47's Ti Quark.
  • E2DL 2xCR2 Shorty. The 5th light is for size reference, the original E2DL was slightly taller than that, which was a bit too big for my taste, The E2DL bezel "teeth" were removed & the body was cut-down from VG FB2 .

I had no idea there were so many CR2 batteries.

I would like to get some more but I do not want to go over say 50 bucks.
