^You must have done a lot of research before buying the PD36R. You use it for everything, it works for everything. Good for you.
I change lights about five times a night.
PW picks one light and runs with it, and I've always found that frugality really cool. First it was a Fenix PD35, now it's a PD36R, and both have plenty of stories to their names.

I finally got around to working on my 1960 Morris Mini. Of the endless restoration tasks, one was to match the new wiring harness to the old maintenance manual and label where everything goes. I used my Elzetta Bravo with a high CRI Malkoff drop in to identify the trace colors on the wires.

Is it green/brown or green/red? Easily done with this light. But is it more brown or more green on the sheath, making brown/green or green/brown? That was another story.

Klarus XT2CR Pro on the highest setting to check my backseat. One of the free mini strudels escaped from my bag. Made sure the other one didn't make a break for it too. (Hey, it's dark in that basement garage.)

Some wires change color slightly with age, mainly due to being in the light, but after 60 years, some wires may change color even without sun, I'm not a chemist, but I suspect that chemistry is involved here

Dusted off this Bushnell 2x123 number from about 2016 and used it to light my way on a brisk walk with Mrs Fixer on a Spring-like January evening.

I'm glad to see that you are letting all your toys a chance to get out and play!

Yeah, we too are getting 10F to 15F degrees warmer than average this entire week.
If not for the rain, it would be beautiful!

Darn it! I opted for the doodoo brown one thinking the green would be some kind of funky lime or something. Wonderful little flashlights.

I used my wife's rainbow PL-2 by PKDL to light up a menu in a dark-ish restaraunt. Wife bought me a steak and loaned me a flashlight 👍👍
