    All tiny lights I have are Lummi Wee SS and Lummi Raw NS.

    Despite the business practices that Robert has, he really is a nice guy and I can't help but to say I trust him.
    Now I'm not saying I haven't ever had some bad practices, but, everything always gets resolved.

    I meant to ask about the Peli in my last post, must've forgot!
    Is the Peli any bulkier/heavier than the Streamlight? I like the fact that it has a higher output but still similar price and AAA batteries! Can it run 10440's?

    And Keith, what's the one with the green tailcap boot?

    Both should run 10440's fine, though my blue trustfire's don't work either light, probably because of the reverse polarity protection these lights have. It's important to note that while the output is a little more on the 1910, they both have the exact same emitter, the budget XP-C. I believe both companies call it a "C4" or something.

    I just weighed each light without a battery:

    Microstream: 2.1g
    1910: 2.8g

    Just got my black Olight I3S in yesterday. Awesome little light. I gave the red one away, which is good, because I like the black better. The black version has a blacked out clip and keychain.

    The MBI needs to have a third low mode to be functional for me or have a QTC variable controlled output. I know TGWNN is working on both. So until then I am holding off on using them as they are so :censored: bright, I can't go blasting them every time I need a light. :)

    I have two and I like them. Good throw for what they are, with a decent spill. The v2 with a recurve pocket clip is definitely the better option, in my humble opinion. The output, despite what the packaging says, appears to be the same, but the pocket clip makes a huge difference in practical application.

    Almost pulled the trigger on a Quantum but ordered a Nitecore EA4 instead, though I did also order a couple more tiny lights like the Thrunite Ti2 and the Mightystar. The Quantum looks cool, though.

    Just off the FedEx truck with more coming. It's safe to say I'm a tiny light addict.

    I'm still not sure what's going on here :unsure:

    Just before I got on EDCF I had bought a Maglite XL50. Apart from a couple of cheap ones & a bicycle light that was the first real LED flashlight I owned & I was on top of the world when it got here. I was a little reluctant to pay the high local price for them but luckily found a nice deal on ebay witch still cut the price in half for me even after USA shipping. I mean, who is crazy enough to pay almost 50 euro's for a flashlight, right?

    ( :rofl: )

    So there I was thinking I'd be good for at least a decade or so in the flashlight department with my shinny new Maglite (it even had modes!), little did I know..

    Only weeks later I ordered a Quantum DD. Just because it was so pretty & I talked myself in to believing I earned something nice & well, it holds trits!

    I guess that was when my resistance went out the door completely, even if I didn't realize it just yet.

    I can't stop checking out more lights now in a quest to find a perfect one (& have more shinny things to look at), especially titanium & SS ones. & I have at least 3 outstanding orders for more lights. What did you people do to me!?! *shakes fist*

    This crap better ends soon , it's starting to get in the way of my knife-addiction :help:

    Well, I'm just gonna get a couple more back ups for my back ups, but then I'm really done here :rolleyes:

    ...until the next gens come out... :(

    Just wanted to let you guys know that there are still a few BLF-Minis left btw. If anyone wants one now would be the time to get it.

    The best flashlight is the next one, which is ... a Thrunite Ti2. It has the latest XP-G2 emitter. It's funny how they just wrote the lumens in with a pen.
