    Still humming along with either Fenix L1 or P2 or LumaPower Connexion or Incendio as Primary and EagleTac P10C2 as secondary.

    That does look interesting. I wonder how it would work on 2xAAA eneloops or Lithiums.

    so glad I got the pic thing going...here is my Surefire E1B
    [img width=640 height=480]http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r115/fsmh3/surefireE1B.jpg[/img]

    battle scars are from about 2 years now of CONSTANT carry -
    really think I use this thing 5 times a day on a slow day...5x that on a heavy use day/night
    one CR123 lasts a very long time - and I love how it defaults to "blinding protection mode"
    prob. my best $-to-useage-purchase...even at $149...

    clipped in my weak-side pocket (RH for me)
    clipped to a PFD when I'm paddling
    clipped in a smart carry every night with the Glock23 (backsleeper)
    Also has it's own "spot" in the Tommy's Gun Pack
    It's been dropped countless times on everything from garage floors to slipping from my hand and 15-20 feet down on some rocks on a portage trail...I've been dunked with it at least 4 times I can think of...once I swam for 10 minutes to catch up to my boat...all I've ever done is change the battery when it needed it.

    Been carrying around a streamlight stylus pro and I am loving it. It hides deep inside my left pocket clipped on and easy to get to. Dont even notice its there. The only thing i am worried about is how long the tail cap is gonna last. As for now Im loving it, heavy duty and a enough light for what i need it for.

    I've had my "Fenix Stream" light in my back pocket for over a year now and the tail cap is still mint!!!

    Definition of a "fenix stream": Micro stream or Stylus Pro with a Fenix head on it.

    I have a Micro Stream with a Fenix l0d-q5 which I don't think they make any more. It gives you all of the functions that the Microstream come with but 5 different settings. No modifications needed!! Low-Medium-High plus S.O.S. and Strobe.

    I also have a Stylus Pro with a LD01 which doesn't have the strobe or S.O.S.

    All of my Streamlight series lights Tail Caps are mint. The Microstream is often sat on because I carry it in my back pocket clipped. Don't even notice it's there.

    Funny you should mention... I just picked up one of those and one Micro Stream (shorter and one AAA instead of 2)
    http://www.brightguy.com/newsletter/STR66318review-3.jpg
    and one Nano:

    These are so handy, I went to NY dinner with 5 women. It was dark and the Micro Stream was a total hit for reading the menus. All these lights are excellent and for the price and no tears if they should "grow legs". So unlike my Fenix PD20, the Micro stream carries on an outside pocket (very handy). Only hitch, on the Nano (at least the one I got) feels like it has a a risky lack of resistance when unscrewed to turn off. Still I recommend them all.

    Sadly, the Nano has a well-earned reputation for the head becoming unscrewed from the body and the cells falling out. An annoying issue if carried in a pocket. Unfortunately, I kept mine on my keyring ... hanging off of my belt. Before I lost the head, it was my favorite tiny keychain light. Unlike my Photon II, the Nano is actually very water-resistant. My new tiny keychain light will be a Photon Freedom, soon as it arrives in the mail. (I hear it's far better in the rain than the Photon II).

    I wonder if I should drop a little non-permanent locktite on it. Wadayathink, Mono?

    Won't you not be able to activate the Nano if you put loctite on the head?

    That would likely cause the exact opposite problem. The Nano is still a nice light. If you carry it on your keys, be sure they're kept in your pocket. That way, you can just re-attach the head when it comes off.

    Fenix LD10 with clip when I'm not in school. Unfortunately I probably have got bad one - there is an awful darker ring between hotspot and spill :(
    However, it's rather good light - very bright. But the beamshot is annoying me.
