    Someone must stop you darned enablers.

    Don't buy it bro. It's a crummy little light with almost no battery live. Your other lights are much more useful, & this thing is so bloody tiny you'll probably loose it before you ever get to use it anyway.

    Sorry, I just got up, I may think of better arguments after another coffee or two.

    (love my DD btw)

    :p

    If the D2 is anything like the Quantum Ti, it's not an enjoyable flashlight to use:
    You'll want to obtain more batteries to swap in while you recharge one.
    You'll want extra QTCs, too.
    It's difficult to turn even with two hands, leaving your fingertips hurting.
    I'll probably try a mod so the sharp Ti edges don't bite so much.

    So, the Quantum Ti is sold out...

    Never to be made again...

    Sadly that makes me not want to EDC it anymore...

    You've got a Peak 10180 on the way anyway. Sit the Quantum on the shelf, bro. ;)

    I know! It must have been a glitch bec $65 was prob the DD price, I was hoping nobody would notice until after I ordered ;)

    Now I think I'll get the DD for $60, I prefer the un-coated stainless to the black anyway...



    Although, I have a Preon P0 on the way so do I really need another keychain light? Hehe

    Pretty good promo price. Glad you got in on that. :D

    I'm still too up in the air on whether I want a Quantum or a Peak 10180 for my keychain. It's a hard decision. :cold:

    I could barely afford one of them if I saved up for a little bit specifically for one, much less both of them. I could never justify 200 bucks for the titanium one without knowing if I would prefer it or the Peak, regardless of how much I love titanium.

    I am thinking of getting both a Peak 10180 and a Quantum DD/D2, and prob an MBI HFR.

    Starting a <2" inch flashlight collection...

    But yeah, no titanium, not going down that road yet.

    My Snow Peak titanium spoon and fork is in my bag 24/7 and that's all the titanium I can handle right now.

    Steve, recently mentioned here on another forum that the only additional production will be another batch of SS D2s.
    That means getting hold all others will be from remaining stock or 2nd hand.
