Olight i3E EOS. Single AAA and 90 lumens. I'm not carrying anything on my belt unless I've something specific task I KNOW I'm going to do . When we are on routine calls (I'm a firefighter) sometimes I'm not wearing my bunker pants or coat that have lights either clipped on or in a pocket. I like having a light in my pocket and I also EDC it off duty.
Why is I was surfing here and saw a post about it, then did a bit more research on it. Thought I'd give it a try.
I took a chance and bought a Convoy S21B from ali express: Ali Express for just under $30. Comes with a 21700 battery. For options, I picked the orange peel reflector and the 12 mode groups. If I lose or break the Convoy, I'm ok with that. But If I lose or break my Fenix PD35, I'm not ok with that.
I'm actually surprised with the Convoy. Build quality seems to be excellent.
The orange peel reflector gives a softer, wider light with no harsh hotspot like the Fenix has.
The Convoy is about 1/2 inch shorter that the PD35.
I chose a mode that has 0.1%, 1%, 10%, 50% brightness with deactivated the memory. So everytime you turn it on, it starts from the lowest brightness.
For the price, you can buy 2 of these Convoys with batteries for the same price of 1 Fenix PD35 without the battery.
The Convoy doesn't come with a pocket clip so it can roll off your desk.
The packaging was terrible, paper envelope was all crumpled but no marks on the light.
An Olight Warrior X Pro. I have a couple of other Os and other LEDs but none with much of a throw. The function is ok, but not crazy about the shape. The flared head reminds me of the ol' Eveready Captain flashlights. My search for a tactical light with a LOT of throw continues.
In other flashlight news, I'm on the fence about getting a Seeker 3 Pro. I have more 'lights than I need.
Want a tactical with lots of throw from a small flashlight? Give the SureFire EDCL-2T a look-see.
Two stage tailcap allows one to utilize a very bright looking 5 lumen low for most uses with a firm press to light up a city block sized warehouse.
Folks swore the low was 25 lumens when they first arrived but SureFire said "nope, it's only 5".
My latest is a Streamlight Stylus 360. Why? 'Cause my buddy knucklegary showed me that one. A 2aaa inspection light with the ability to easily become a lantern.
Sofirn SP36 BLF with diffuser mostly for use as a lantern. Run time at 125L well north of 30hrs. Started with a full charge & was still at 3.2v (as reported by the light) when I hit 30hrs. 125L is enough for a small bedroom, used in a tent at a lower level I'd expect even more run time.
Malkoff M61WLL in a VME head and an unshrouded 1CR123 body. The high CRI 3000k light is really pleasant, particularly around the house at night, and the size and clip make it very pocketable. A really neat package overall.
-Nichia 219b sw45k in Emisar D18 because it is one of my favorite emitters
-Nichia 219b sw27 (channel 2) and sw45k (channel 1) in the Noctigon K9.3 because I’m very curious about this emitter and want tint ramping with Toy Keepers new firmware.
-Nichia 219b sw45k in Jetbeam RRT01 modified by Sky Lumen to include four emitters versus one and glow gasket. I wanted a rotary with my favorite emitter.
-SBT90 in Mateminco MT90vn Spec C because 4million candela is king. I’ve been working a lot and this is a good way to treat myself. Get one of my dream flashlights.
