    Default What’s your Malkoff bedside light?

    I tend to switch out my bedside lights but my Malkoff 2XAA has been next to me for about a month now and it’s dam near perfect for a bed light. I do also keep a Z3 with a full power M61 stuffed in a V85 surefire holster for if things get real bad😂
    If i had one day left to live i would want to be at my workplace.Because every day is like a frickin eternity.

    I keep an MD2 with high/low ring running an M61N powered by a dummy 18350 and a CR123. Mostly used to rundown used batteries. I have a couple of other lights for the “bump” in the night.

    I've got a pimped out G2 with an M61LLL 219v3 that I am quite partial to for any late night/ midnight errands. Super-tired or quick medical things I use my HDS and double beryl.

    Big bumps in the night would get my M61HOT H/L- and the horse she rides in on.

    My bedside light is an MD2 with a V2 NIchia M61 and an OR Triad tail which is also GID. I tend to turn it on at dusk pointing upwards. Mrs Yeti likes a mains powered proper light on her side. I don't - I have been known to take the fuse out, and tell her it's broken, but of course, then I have to "mend" it.
    Also there is an MD2 with an OR Nichia Triple and a Triad tail plus two Nichia HDSs, mostly so I know were they all are rather than for convenience.

    I had this exact setup by my bed for months.I like the idea of have something I can strike with if necessary And have full output if I need it. Problem I had with this rig was that the low was WAY to bright for me.Only solution I found was to have more then one light next to me. That’s why I’m using the setup I have now. My AA for the low. My M61 just in case.Not complaining mind you. But I would really really like a hi/lo ring that could give me a lower low.

    I did speak to gene about this an asked him if he would consider changing the ring to a lower output.His response was that for everyone that asked for a lower low there was someone that asked for a higher low lol. That’s when he suggested that maybe,possibly,No guarantee what so ever that an adjustable ring with a pot on it might be an option down the road.

    Hound Dog 18650. This has become my goto light for a number of things. My only complaint is that my pockets aren't big enough to carry one.
    I occasionally wear it on my belt, but even then it's bit too big.

    How does your 361 work with the ring on low? Pretty reliable?

    Sometimes it works as it should, so I keep it on low when at my bedside and if I am carrying it I keep the ring on Hi.

    Am thinking to retain the M91N at the bedside, with the M91BN secured elsewhere ?

    MD2 with SF tailcap, M361 (6200k, 400 lumen version) with high/low ring. This M361 drop-in works perfectly with the high-low ring, and those three super-low output levels are very useful for indoor navigation with dark-adapted eyes. This particular drop-in also has a nice tint for a 6200k emitter. FWIW, my M361 219B v3 does not cycle reliably with the ring set on low.

    It's really an extraordinarily useful light that's at home on the nightstand or in a pocket. Shown here on the lowest output;

    Those tailcaps from the P2X, P3X and 6PX are lovely. I have one on my Hound Dog with a ZeroRez inside.
