    Fenix E12. I like it, but I want something longer with a "striking" bezel, but without any added thickness. Any ideas?

    Unfortunately, I've experienced that, too, with some of my lights (Fenix PD20, and PD22), so I did away with those lights, altogether. The only light I chose to keep, that runs only on primary batteries, is an old Maglite 6D, loaded with a TerraLux 1000 lumen upgrade LED module; but that sees very rare use. I kept it for nostalgic reasons, but wanted to upgrade from a bulb to an LED setup, and it works well, albeit not nearly as nicely as any of my smaller LED lights.

    I switched over the two 2D Maglites, from alkaline, to Tenergy Centura 8000 mAh NiMhs, and those are kept in my car, as back-up lights.

    Malkoff make super nice lights, though. The only thing I own, of theirs is the 2D Mag XP-G2 R5 modules, and one of their M361 3-mode P60 drop-ins, which is built like a tank. Super reliable.

    Yeah Malkoff is nice I have a few drop ins and I have the m361n loaded in a bored ice blue 6P but that is heavy and my MD2 high low switch is finicky so I carry the MDC mainly for super toughness a clip that is secured( lost my ZL SC600W II) ability to change the clicky and good price point and I don't want to lose my $270 HDS HICRI.....that would not be good.

    Malkoff will probably swap out that faulty MD2 switch, for you, if it's giving you grief. Their service is first class, and Gene stands by his product.

    I dropped the light on the clicky on concrete and it must of hit just right to mess it up but I had a spare around. Yeah his service is top notch.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Surefire 6P with a M361N. I had a problem with it coming on in my pocket so I stopped carrying it for a few months. At the end of the day today I went to pull it out my pocket and use it and it was as hot as fire, the whole light not just the bezel was on high mode and for who knows how long. So I switched to this[​IMG]MDC 219B V1.

    Work: Lumintop IYP365. A good penlight, simple and seems sturdy, havent had any problems with it.
    Regular EDC: Thrunite Archer 1A (V3). Sometimes Olight S10.

    If I want a bit more punch I grab my Fenix UC35.
