Got a Photon Freedom in white, and a Photon II in yellow because they’ve become my favorite lights and I still have a handful of warm Yuji leds laying around.

A Prometheus Delta custom.
Got it with 519a leds, copper metal button.

Wanted a triple. And did not disappoint.

After a couple years with a Tiki LE as my main pocket light I decided it was time for a possible change. Found a similar one on Amazon. It's from a company called Zixear, and is the model M300. It hasn't made it to the pocket yet, because of the added size (0.5 in.), but it does have a lot of nice features. It's rechargeable through a type C port with red and green charge lights; four levels (400 l. - 2 l.) with a nice very slightly warm tint; last level memory; four side lights (white, white strobe, UV, red, red strobe, red/blue strobe, all listed to be 50 l.; IP65 waterproof; and a luminous poly carbonate shell with an aluminum head. All in all I'm mostly pleased. The price was right (~$16), and the switch is a good clickie. Cons to me would be the increased size compared to the Tiki and I'd like a lower low.

P.S. Forgot to mention it has a magnet at the tail.

This Foursevens Regen R-50 prototype arrived yesterday. It's the tallest light in the middle of the picture.

Why? It's a Foursevens Regen R-50 prototype. Have you ever seen one? 😄

Is that the PK to the left?
I liked that one. Never got the hang of all the secret settings tho. Hi/lo with memory was good enough for me.

Tell us a little about the R-50 if you don't mind.

The most recent, and WHY?
Because CPF made me do it!

Here I was minding my own business, when someone posted that Maglite went dual chemistry. And I had to try it out.

Actually, it seems that family members grab my larger lights when they need one so I thought that the 2C cell/ 1 18650 model would work out well.

I got a couple Olights: Marauder Mini modded with Nichia 519a 5700k x3 and 5000k x3; Marauder Mini with Nichia 219b D220 sw45k; Stock Perun 2 Mini; and Swivel Pro. I’m really enjoying the Sw45k.

A Sofirn SC31Pro in 5000K at the recommendation of another member. My first 18650 light. It is great.
I am strongly considering a Emisar D4Sv2 dual channel now.

After not buying any for the last few months. Bought two now!
IMALENT MS12 Mini (10% off)
KLARUS XT21X Pro (15% off)

Purchased from their respective official websites.
Handful of rechargeable Klarus lithiums too.

Why not have 65,000 rated lumens strapped to my belt, with 4,400 lumens clipped to my pants pocket? (And yes, I know those reported numbers aren't actually what you get. But who doesn't like saving some money too!) 🙂👍

With over 4000 lumen, the perfect batteries, price and function, the search stopped there.
There simply was no need to look for anything more.
