    Wow. Things have a changed a bit for me since May 2010. My SC50 and Quark mini both crapped out on me.

    My current top 3 would be:
    Zebralight H51F (right pocket clipped)
    Niteocore D10 R2 Camo (EDC pouch)
    Solarforce Skyline II (inside Car)

    1) Fenix LD01 Always on me.
    2) Fenix P2D On me when out at night or whenever I think I might need it, otherwise in my bag.
    3) don't know yet. I want a PD30 or similar (for when the P2D isn't enough?) also often carry a variety of cheap hardware store backups or area lights.

    EDC for me
    1) On my keychain is a TI Draco
    2) In my pocket or bag is Nitecore EX11.2
    That's it for EDC really, although most likely other light to have with me is a Zebralight H31

    That's surprising. I'd expect that both Zebralight and 4Sevens have taken good care of you?

    It's a stock clip that comes with the headlamp. I'm not sure if newer models still have them.

    Muyshondt Aeon
    Sunwayman V10R Ti
    Maratac AA

    I also have a Incendio V3U XML, but unfortunately it doesn't work with primaries (only working with RCR123s) so I've sent the pill back to Illumination Gear for a replacement. If it all works out, this light will replace the Maratac...

    My primary light is a Surefire E1B in a belt holster, Fenix EO5 on my keys and when the need arises either my Quark AA or Streamlight Microstream/ITP A3 combo.

    my top edc light/minimal carries in order of the most usage:
    1. iphone flash flashlight apps
    2. nite-ize spotlit keychain light (omni directional light source for keyholes & other close-up tasks)
    3. streamlight microstream (more as a spot light source)

    then,
    4. fenix e05 aaa flashlight -i still need to buy that separate clip to make it more useful, otherwise it's tucked away in my caselogic flash drive case & less accessible.

    5. niteize ziplit if i'm wearing my jacket or cargo

    6. cheap-o aaa multi-led clicky lights from retail stores as a collateral, beater light.

    this is excluding other flashlights that i might happen to be carrying.

    Random lights in bags and/or jacket pockets (from L4 to A6 to Scorpion to Preon to coincells to etc.), but for the last several years a Fenix L0D has been riding on my keychain and has seen by far the most use. Size, flexibility, battery availability, performance, and durability have been satisfying and reassuring.
