I dig flashlights, but I'm not really "into" them the way some guys are. I am interested in the latest led technology, though. I have an Inova T1, X5, and older X1 and a Fenix P1D CE.

Yep, I have a keychain super bright LED that I have with me most of the time. It puts out as much light as a lot of full size standard (old style) flashlights did and has a much longer battery life. Tex

wow thats a lot of batteries in play - sounds pricey.
i have two dynamo lights that work well with a 1 or 3 LED option.
i also have 2 shake lights that are way cool but the thing i dislike is that i have to be careful where i put them in a pack (i.e. not near a compass or LCD screen).

I almost had a heart attack today, though. While shopping at Sam's Club this afternoon -- I saw a display of two-pack Serengeti 3-AAA hi-intensity multi-function LED Flashlights with CREE led's and tactical heads/bases for under $29
How I managed to get outta there without caving I'll never know. (I'll prolly go back mañana and get 'em anyway...)
...I mean, I do need them. Right?

Are you kidding me Aaron? You must of missed the thread on our "other" forum.


I really would like to have ONE ultra bright light at home and one in my bug-out bag.
Don't get so excited! I said Flashlight, not Fleshlight Lamby!

J/K I guess I missed that thread.

Have you seen this one:

$32 for 900 Lumens FTW.

This is the flashlight I use most often around the house:

However, this is the one I really want:

Are you talking about this one:
https://www.samsclub.com/shopping/navigate.do?dest=5&item=417255

Looks like a decent light. It is roughly 160 lumens. I recommend checking out this site before you pull the trigger on those:

...but the thing is -- after I clicked on those links from Aaron, for the same $ outlay, I can end up with one of those MAJOR lights (clones of those $500 Surefires)?! I'm really in a quandry now!

...And I actually need a Flatband Ergo "curley" or a BB Laminate S/S just as bad?!


My plan for today was to get in line at the $2 window at Santa Anita Race Track and double my money on a "sure thing"
in order to buy it ALL, but it's raining so bad that it's hard to pick a winner since horses don't run according to form on sloppy tracks...
So I'm staying at home just a-wishin' instead.

Nice collection! How are the LED Lensers?
Led lensers have good build quality(like Fenix) I realy like the P3 with to zoom u have basicaly 2 options ; focused ,and this other very cool looking big blue circle it spreads the light very evenly everywere in the circle, acctualy its more usefull then the focused beam cuz that's not very nice .P14 looks ,feels steardy nice throw in complete darkness I would say 170m useful light amount.
