The subject line says it all. This doesn't necessarily have to be your favourite flashlight, just the one you reach for & use most frequently.

For me, it's the EN McLux with white LED and McFlood reflector.

Arc AAA-P. I updated to the newer brighter one, but I've been carrying a Arc AAA on my keychain for the last 4 yrs. I use it most everynight from the car to the door now that its dark when I get home.

I have motion sensing nightlights throught the house so I don't use a flashlight inside unless the power goes out, although I have 4 or 5 on my nightstand just in case :D

I use the G2 most, because it's always within reach. I'd use the Photon Freedom Micro, but it's too small for me to find quickly when I need it. If LRI made a... 1xCR123A or a 1xAA light with the same features as the Freedom Micro (I really like the dimming features) for a low, under $50 price, I'd use it all the time.

This should make for some interesting findings, Craig.

In order of my use-frequency:

1. SF E2/KL1
2. Peak McKinley
3. SF L5

In order of daily runtime:
1. SF L5
2. SF E2/KL1
3. Peak McKinley

With so many neat lights in the torch-locker, it's often tough to find the "right light" (tool) for the job. Maybe that's what the great journey of Flashaholism is all about: exploring... i.e., Illumination Testing & Evaluation.

Fenix L1P, since it's in my pocket all the time. My Pelican M6 3W LED seems to run a distant 2nd, followed by the Surefire U2, Surefire E1L, and my 3x3W 2D magmod.

Lately its the Fenix L1P. In the colder weather months, a heavy coat makes it easier to carry additional lights. In that case I also add a TM301X-3 or a Inova T3.

Surefire U2. SF calls it the Digital Ultra, I think of it more as Universal, because that light goes everywhere, fills almost every concievable mission (except the ones requiring Turboheads and Ludicrous Lumens).

I alternate quite often with my lights, but 10 times out of 10, I use the 3[M]iniMag since it's ALWAYS on my person.

Hrmm... probably my Fenix L1P in first place, followed by my TW0K-modded BOG module in a 2 cell Vital Gear body on 2xR123 cells. Those are the 'away from the house' lights.

When I'm at home, I've mostly been using a Quest minimag clone modded with a Snow 29 LED running on a 14500 cell and a dummy cell and before that, the same light with a Nichia CS LED. I sand the LED to give it a frosted appearance and sputter the reflector to make the beam almost entirely hotspot with basically zero artifacts. Second place would probably be the Minimag with the SMJLED on Energizer Lithiums though I think I prefer my best MJLED to the SMJLED as I can focus it down tighter.

I tried to do a search before starting this thread, but that is currently nonfunctional.

Don't worry about it... I think everyone likes threads like these and since some of us CPFers change our EDCs more frequently than our socks, starting a new one each month makes sense.
