...since I enjoyed the last thread in search of the not-quite-EDC light and it made me break with the list of what I thought I'd need in that light to make me happy (the Zebralight I chose has no internal charging which I initially wanted), I'm going to annoy you with another one of those. Only now, things get turned around. Instead of providing an immaculate list of relevant specifications, I'll be horribly vague. So in my active roster of duty I have the following Items: EDC: Olight S1RII Ti (winter edition). It's the same as the normal S1RII, only it's got a titanium body and the emitter is MUCH warmer. 3000k of oldschool flashlight yellowness, but with a turbo mode spitting out modern 850 Lumens. I love that one. It's been with me every single day since I had it in the mail. In my bag that I carry most of the time, I have the regular S1RII as a backup. Things I like about these two: The UI suits my needs just fine. Low-Mid-High per normal operation, moonlight and turbo per easy 'special presses'. Recharging inside the lamp simple visual indicator of battery status magnetic tailcap the tint of the Ti version the size vs power ratio the good balance of a large hotspot and spill, very good for EDC, but will reach way over the 100 yards mark in a pinch. Not-quite-EDC: Zebralight SC600w Mk IV HI I've not had this one very long, but I liked it from the moment I slid an 18650 cell into it and turned it on for the first time. I kept clear of all the guides and manuals on how the UI works and tried to figure it out myself. Lo and behold: I mastered the muggle mode within mere moments.This one has a bit more juice than the Olight, it has a bigger reflector and a smaller hotspot, so it reaches further, stays on longer and while still being tiny, it's actually something that fills your hand while working with it. Not too large to hold it in your mouth, if you're into that. In some ways, it is the exact opposite of the Olight. Where the Olight comes with a UI that offers more modes close at hand (5 instead of 3), the Zebra comes with so many options to customize it that it's baffling. Where the Olight comes with a set of nice-to-have extras (magnetic tailcap, magnetic charger, two way clip) the Zebra seems to focus on the job at hand (use the juice in the cell as good as possible to make light come out of the fat end) and do that exceptionally well. The Olight with the sexy knurling around the barrel and the flashy beadblasted titanium seems to suggest to be more than a mere flashlight, it aspires to be a work of design and art. The Zebra is a flashlight. No doubt about that. It looks a bit unique, but it's so flashlighty that no one could ever confuse it with anything else. So the Zebralight hops in my bag when I know it's likely that I'll need a flashlight. My Quest could be over here. I have my EDC and I have a slightly bigger one with more power. I also have spares I did not mention because they are sitting somewhere in the house waiting for the first power cut in decades. But in the last thread I said that I'm a three flashlights kind of person. I said It's about having an EDC, a not-quite-EDC and a thrower. I claimed that I sometimes need to scan for deer which needs a 1000ft range before I let my dog off the leash. I also said that the kid in me requires a thrower because back then, the best light was the one that could shine further than the others. So I went and got an Olight Javelot Pro. I always liked the looks of that one, especially in Coyote Tan. I found one for a ridiculously cheap price, so I had to get it. I toyed around with it for a few minutes, but realized that it's a bit too big for what I like it to do. It won't fit into my coat pockets. And it's too expensive to have it 'just because'. So I sold it on with a profit. And that money needs to go somewhere. I gave away my old Dereelight DVB v3 thrower, so ATM the Zebra is the flashlight that shines the furthest. So what do all these words mean? I'm looking to get a flashlight that has me grinning when I pull it out of my coat pocket. My intended budget is a two figure sum, but could stretch further if I really like what I see. I do have an unused 14500 and a pair of protected 18650s in my possession that have nowhere to go. Objects I looked at so far: -One of them LEP laserbeams. HUGE grin potential, but all I've found are north of 200 bucks and the used market does not hold any of them. -Thrunite Catapult v6. This could be an obvious choice. It has many things I like and fits the bill rather well. -Lumintop GT mini and GT micro. I don't like ramping that much, but the micro is so tiny, yet powerful that it intrigues me somewhat. -Prometheus Mini Turbo MKIII. Too weak. I mean, incredible numbers for the size. But too weak for me to consider it. So that's where you guys come in and suggest something I have not thought of, we start a discussion, I realize you've got a point and somewhere on this planet, someone packs a flashlight, writes my name on the parcel and puts it in the mail.
