    I said I'd post photos of my new Tain Ottavino. Next to it is another new arrival, a Maratac copper AAA for comparison. The low light photo shows how well the diffuser cap glows in the dark.

    I used my Olight i3 EOS AAA light which has an XP-G2 emitter on high (80 lumens) as my light source. :-)

    Oops, looks like the third photo didn't load. Will correct shortly.

    Here's the third photo showing the diffuser cap. You can even see a bit of the glow reflecting off the metal of the USB connector on the charger. Also you can see the purple trit in the tail of the Ottavino.

    I just posted this photo on the Show Off Your Copper thread. It's not pure copper, but bronze is mostly copper. This is a closeup of the Muyshondt Ion CR2 light from my earlier group photos in aluminum bronze.

    I'd never had a light with a fancy fob before. The fob makes it a lot harder for a small light like this to get away from you and drop it on concrete or whatever and ding it. From now on I'm going to have fobs on my more expensive lights if I plan to carry them.

    Drops on concrete



    Ok on a serious note(well not really tbh) i do find them easier to handle if not attached to anything(like keys etc). In short i am a clumsy *beep* so having something there imo too helps grip and gives that more of a security feel as well.

    Really nice lights you have at some point (when my very bad week/month is done with) i will be looking into some smaller special lights at a later dateTill then i can admire yours and others .................and hopefully more yet when other members show their lights

    Actually I rarely carry my more valuable lights. I can't bear the thought of dinging one because I was clumsy or careless, so they are pretty much shelf queens. But once in a while I do, in which case I'm extra careful.

    Only the first scratch or ding hurts. Most of my "expensive" lights are a pleasure to use. Great UI, beam, tint, ergonomics, material, build quality, etc. are what make them expensive and a pleasure to use. I also frequently use a lanyard - one end clips to a belt loop on my pants and the end is clipped or tied to the light and the lanyard is long enough so it doesn't hinder using the light, but short enough so if I drop the light, it doesn't hit the ground. I started doing this when I used to do a lot of salt water fishing. I got tired of dropping knives, pliers, and other tools in the water. The lanyard can be ornate (braids and fancy knots) or very simple. Both types work.

    A lanyard sounds like a great idea. I might give that a try for my pricier lights.

    I agree, E25 is a little thrower for 2aa light. The diffuser makes a huge difference using it indoors. I like the lantern effect.(flood) make the light more practical.. If i don't lose the diffuser...

    EDIT: I JUST READ POST ONE! I GUESS I AM DISQUALIFIED!

    First I apologize for the distractions,,,,,,,,I used my Bootleg Hendrix album for stability on my "Small tiled" table! Then of course the awesome wallpaper!Plenty of little torches for me. My majority of lights are high powered throwers!
