    My current EDC lights are probably pretty boring compared to most but I've been rotating these two Olights

    Dirty Rods Surefire Frankenlight. A Backup head with an E1e Executive body. I've got more than a dozen Surefires around the house all the way up to the 1000 Watt Fury but this little guy hits the road with me all the time. Single battery, dual output, 80 lumen, and small enough for any pocket.

    Finally found a light that met my picky needs. Finding a decent light withOUT all the fancy options and not super expensive has been a journey. Finally ran across this light and it's as close to perfect for my EDC needs as any I've found. The Streamlight Protac 1L-1AA. The duel fuel idea is nice, I can run cr123 for max output but if I run into a situation where I just need a battery I can pop in a AA without any modifications. It's a little smaller than my trusty S30R, not a bunch of modes to run through, and best of all a tail clicky. Lots of programming options but I have it set just the way I like it, on or off. Lol. Perfect pocket size for me and no buttons to search for in the dark. And best of all, inexpensive light. [​IMG]

    My Nitecore turned out to be a piece of trash, so I replaced it with an Armytek Prime A2 Pro. It runs on 2 AA's and has a magnet in the tailcap, which has come in very handy for finding staples that need to be removed from the paperwork I do at work every day.

    Jp85, Maratac CR123 Stainless Steel from CountyComm. You rotate the bezel on & off for low, medium, high light modes (2, 55, 300 lumens). Very small for a CR123 light and rides great in the pocket plus the stainless steel does not scratch nearly as easy as titanium. $59.95 & in stock right now. Also comes in a Copper version but it's out of stock until January. Love your avatar BTW!!!!!

    That is great, i will keep an eye out for the copper version since i have been looking for one to go along with my swiss bianco copper alox.

    What are the specs on the blade? looks great too.

    Jp85 Folder is a GREAT knife. DPx Hest/f2.0 Black Mr. DP. It's getting hard to find this one. Has a blade of course but also has a bottle opener, glass breaker, and wire stripper. Rides great in the pocket, excellent pocket clip, the Elmax blade steel is great to me. Just a fun fun knife. Made for DPX in Italy by LionSteel.

    Big fan of the O-Light S10R II Baton. Such a great light output for the size of it (500 lumen). Magnetic base and rechargeable too. Can't imagine me needing anything bigger than this for what i do. I recently got in the mail the tiny i3S-CU EOS which im really pleased with, a decent light output for a AAA torch.

    Yeh, i think it is. I seem to remember it's just slightly brighter than the mini maglite, which is 99 lumens.

    The i3 has 3 modes though (unlike the mag), super bright, medium and candle. Very useful for those close up tasks that don't require something as bright as the sun.

    Colt Seavers is the s10 the one with the rechargeable docking station? I sort of want to maybe invest in a good nightstand flashlight and was looking at the s30R
