    I use my pocket light about 20 times a day during winter.
    I think the last use was either in search of a power socket behind a cupboard or to light up a pier to see if there still was ice.

    One of my friends who is into vaping (but I didn't think he was interested in flashlights) saw my Q8 sitting on the table and was excited to try it.

    I guess a lot of vape users are crossing over into this hobby to put their batteries to use. He said he read a little about the light online.

    He was quite blown away when we brought it outside. It lights up a reflective speed limit sign about a 1/4 mile away from my house!

    Lights went out at the shop this morning so I had to break out the Bazooka!

    It is claimed to be able to run for up to 10 hours on a 5ah battery!?
    But I have not been able to try it for that long just yet.

    I set my zebralight H53c on the floor to light up the storage space under a desk while putting away soup cans. That little zebra light is the perfect work light because you can set it down and aim it in any direction whether it be tail standing or on its side.

    A container of cat treats. I’m taking care of the in-laws cats. When I was over today, I couldn’t find the treat container that had been up on a shelf. Using my flashlight I found it under their pool table behind some boxes.

    Used my TK75vn QUAD[7700L/423Kcd] to light up the Schuylkill River trail so CAPO my Siberian can do his usual Scanning of the area!

    I was walking in a shore town last night and several of the streets on the way back to my car were pretty dark and had uneven slate sidewalks. Unfortunately, I had forgotten my main flashlights at home, but I did have my trusty Fenix E05 (old single mode) on my keys. I did need to stop and grab my spare AAA battery from my pocket kit since it's been forever since I put a battery in the E05, but it did the job. I was pulling a two wheel cart, so the little E05 was crucial for spotting uneven pavement so I didn't accidentally tip over the cart.

    My use has involved rental cars a lot. In a dark garage, checking for damage before accepting car. Looking for the gas cap cover release early in the morning or at night. Looking for the power socket in dark in an unfamiliar model.

    Walking through my dark garage. Light connected to the garage door motor needs new bulbs. Too much junk under it to put a step ladder. Too lazy to move the junk.

    Sure is nice having a NiteCore Tube on the keys! :)

    L'chaim!

    Moonlight mode walking around the house last thing at night, closing the windows after cooling the place down without attracting moths and mozzies.

    I play saxophone in public for donations. Last night I used my Zebralight h53c balanced on the lid of my open sax case to see to put my saxophone away and I used my Nitecore MT2A when walking down dark uneven sidewalks back to my car. The Zebralight worked well clipped to my belt loop to provide light while loading my things back into my car.

    I'm going to guess you play jazz? Which flavor(s)?

    Love jazz. Love Coltrane and Sonny Rollins, among MANY others! :)

    Silly me. I just noticed your 'avatar'! 'SLAP' -- MY PALM HITTING MY FACE!

    My humidor. Bad storm knocked out the power so it was a great time to burn a stick.

    Our was out last night from 8:30pm until 3am.

    My zebra light SC63 lights up the whole living room when placed on a coffee table and shined on the ceiling.

    Lit up the trap I'm using to clear out this season's groundhogs in the back yard so I could bait it.
