    Is that a RovyVon E300S with Nichia emitter?
    Also, what's the multi-folder on the right? :)

    The Aurora is a great little EDC flashlight. I have the A8 and enjoy it. Just wish the battery was a little larger, but then recharging is quite fast. And this is really meant as a "momentary use" light, not for long continuous use.

    Indeed it is!
    The oddly named "Angel Eyes"!?
    Neat little light though and a whole lot more rugged than I expected too!

    The Knife is a Boker Tech Tool 5 which is the Boker attempt at a SAK and it is also pretty impressive to me.
    No Corkscrew thankfully and nice Pliers as well as Scissors and these Boker come apart for cleaning too!

    Sometimes I wish we did not have a great Knife Shop local to me here!

    I have wanted one of these since Kev showed his and they finally showed up where the exchanges are an easy deal if one breaks!

    I have several Milwaukee lights now and they have all been really great for work!

    $20 at Home Depot!
    2aa,300l for 5 hours & 100l for 16 hours claimed.
    Gnarly Clip that rotates and Magnets on 2 sides.
    Milwaukee True Color or whatever they call it warm emitters.

    Seems like a lot of light for the price to me!

    Really liking this budget light, FW3A it’s a super small 18650 pocket rocket at 2,800 lumens w variable brightness. Best deal out there IMO [​IMG]

    Still waiting for a shipment notification from Nealsgadets on mine.

    As far as I've read it's a stellar budget option.

    Thanks Man,
    It’s a Mechtorch EDC, added the 16 trits and did the Anodizing. It’s a really nice “budget” light.

    The tritium and adhesive (Norland 61) is from a guy from mixglow.com and the anodizing is actually super easy just YouTube “anodizing 9v battery” there are a few items you will need:
    Something Titanium
    Titanium wire (couple of bucks from EBay)
    Whink rust & stain remover
    Alcohol
    Glass cleaner/windex or generic
    Distilled water
    1-5 9 volt batteries (different amount will provide change in color)
    Plastic gloves
    And alligator clips.

    With anodizing you are essentially painting color on the Ti if you don’t like it dip it into the Whink for 11-15 sec and it goes right back to natural Ti. So you are not committed to a certain color.

    My Fenix LD12 is my constant EDC companion. At other times, it's the now discontinued PD22.

    Mac's Customs EDC SST-50 Aluminum

    I'm still sporting my Mac's Customs EDC SST-50 18350 most days after many years of service.

    Sorry, I have no pics to post. I have been EDCing a Fenix UC35 V2.0 since they were released and have been very happy with the light.
    I just received the new PD36R today. For all purposes it is the same size but has half again the lumen output at 1600 lumens. This has now replaced the UC35V2.0.
    Uses the newer 21700 battery with the USB-C connection to charge the battery.

    Just got mine a few days ago, a pocket rocket for sure. This is my first 18650 light, there may be more...

    Andúril has lots of options for the UI, I think it will take a while to get completely comfortable, but I like it a lot.

    I hear ya, changed the mode accidentally and had to look up how to access them all. Really kind of cool in a EDC’er nerd way.

    HDS Rotary with a 325 NLT in the pocket and Jetbeam Mini 1 on the keychain are almost always with me.
