I bought a half-dozen Battery Drainers from datiLED -- some 5mms, some triple lanterns. Useful little beasts -- very tiny, very efficient. And he's working on some even tinier ones for me.
One of my brothers saw the lantern and had to have it. Good thing I had ordered two.

I like the Crealant CH10 headlamp so much I bought 4 of them, unfortunately 3 out of 4 eventually became unreliable, so I was in a search to get a replacement.

I settled on the Sofirn D25L

I like it enough, that I bought another as a back up, just in case they stop production of it.
Here it is carried in Star Trek mode strapped to the back of my hand.

A malkoff mdc 1x 3.7 li ion / 2x cr123a head and a 16650 e series body.
It’s been delivered to my local post office as I was out. Which does not open till Monday.

Why I bought it?, because they sent me a 20% discount email🤦

I did want them for a while but the $55 postage was stopping me buying.

Went into my local post office and the lady who runs the post office counter was in today so I got my new mdc after all.

That looks way more practical than those square boxes they held in their hands on the next generation episodes. I suppose when they made that series they had to use an array of LED's that size to put out a lot of light, yet they seemed outdated looking.
Then again they drive around in a gigantic space ship that takes about 10 soldiers to operate the auto pilot feature and one to tell them when to push the throttle. "engage" pyyaaaaw.

My last LED light purchase was a grenade grip 3C Maglite in forest green because I did not already have one in forest green.

FWAA Copper Nichia.

1. This is a well known design. We all participated in its creation (in away).

2. Copper. I like copper.

3. High CRI. I need to check wiring from time to time. Color is key.

4. Nice flood pattern of a beam.

5. My beloved wifie has expropriated my Lumintop Tool AA 2.0 in copper that was filling this gap :)

My last light purchase was a Rovyvon Aurora A3Pro because I was curious about them, having read about them here...and because there was a $5 off sale on-line and I was already shopping so "add to cart" was easy to press. I'm quite pleased by it. True, can't change the battery in it (without a lot of trouble). But a keychain light doesn't have to last forever, and it puts out a lot of light for its size. Only been riding in my pocket for a month but so far, so good; hasn't turned on in my pocket and has lit every time I've pulled it out. What more can one ask from a flashlight?

Sofirn SP10 Pro, the worlds first AA compatible light running Anduril 2. Because it has a ramping UI, is AA compatible, has lower lows than a Zebra, and is moddable.

more info here, including photos and a modding tutorial

We are Flashaholics. Let's face it, out of all our lights, we will really only use a maximum of 3 of them, and the rest will just collect dust.


GUILTY!
