    Although I don't have a nightstand to speak of, I have about seventy plus lights (all with fully-charged batteries), on top of an entertainment center, about five feet away from me, and the WL-S4 is among those lights. I love that one! :D

    I also love that light! Only way it could be better, is if it had a charging dock mounted in my truck like my streamlight stinger.

    See picture below. The sun has just set so I've taken a photo. We get regular power outages so a reliable source of light on the side table is a must. In addition to table lamp the list includes: 3D Maglight with Nite-Ize LED globe, Lumintop Prince Copper flashlight (arrived today), Coleman outdoors 3 x LED round push top table light, Northern Lights candle lamp with spring base, and a copy of the Light Of The World.

    It's been about 6mo since I started this thread. I appreciate all of the comments. Fun to see what others are using. For the record, the TN4A sits on my nightstand and has become my favorite flashlight.

    Does anyone add glow in the dark spray paint or tape to their nightstand light to make it easier to find in the dark? I've never used either, but I'm curious as to the efficacy. I don't know how long that stuff glows for?

    My current nightstand light is a old Streamlight dual switch Stinger LED because I had an extra one sitting around, and the TLR HL on my Glock 17.

    whatever was in my pocket for the day. usually just a little olight I3. I don't consider a flashlight to be part of my home defense set up if someone breaks in at night. My house isn't pitch black, and i will be able to see someone walking in my house without aid of light, and i wouldn't go for a light because i wouldn't want them to see it and know I'm looking.


    if im out late at night walking around i will bring something brighter (1x cr123)

    A Thrunite Ti2 that has lost the high mode (4/5 of these lights have done this) and a cheap AAA incan.

    Fenix TK15, always in low mode. The momentary on switch gets used most often and will illuminate clear across the widest part of our home.

    Took it with us to KOA campsite over the past weekend. The medium mode illuminated objects on the other side of the little lake on the campgrounds.

    A local to me retailer sells nylon SAK scales which I popped on this old Climber. I've seen them on auction sites as well and they aren't expensive.

    I keep a few around the nightstand area, but typically I just put my Olight S30R on its charging dock by the bed when I empty my pockets at night.

    All 4 of my lights are in my bedside drawer; Zebralight H600WmkII, Zebralight H502, Eagletac D25A Ti, L3 Illumination L10.

    TBH most of the time I reach for the ZL H502
