    I use the "clip over the button" trick sometimes and the lockout mode mostly or my S20. No problems in 3 months with it....

    How are you liking this one? I was kind of sad that I didn't get a Jetbeam E3S before they stopped making them, this looks very similar in size and styling.

    I love this thing. Keep in mind that I am not a flashlight expert and am new to all of this. From the moment I saw it I fell in love with it and decided to give it a try. It has a little weight to it which I dont mind at all. I will probably order another one just to keep it as a back up. I know Selfbuilt just did a review on it and dont know if that affected the sales at all but the place I ordered it from is out of stock at the moment.

    Yeah, I suspect his reviews have that effect ;) (not that they've EVER influenced ME ;) )

    This Surefire just arrived on Friday. It is much bigger than what I normally carry but I really like it.

    My everyday carry flashlight is a Fenix E12. It does everything I need for EDC. I like everything BUT, the fact it came with no clip. Why they wouldn't put a clip on there, I will never know. Otherwise this light is perfect for me. I have several flashlights of course, but this is my EDC.

    Ive been eye-balling around for a 'mule' pure-flood light lately and when i was about to pull the trigger on a Zebralight h502 this weird little voice in my head said 'You have enough spare parts to build something like that yourself!'. So i did;

    [​IMG]

    Meet the Quark Ti Mule (top light)! Full 120 degree or pure floody goodness with worlds most awesome driver; 3 freely programmable slots that can be set at any brightness, beacon, any speed strobe, SOS... its awesome to toy with (currently set to moonlight, low, medium). Driver will run on anything from .7 to 4.2 volts, has undervoltage protection that can be disabled so can completely vampire a primary cell bone dry while shutting down on low voltage when using RCR cells. And best part; it works with all my shiny old Ti Quark lego bits so i can do AA/CR123/18650 sized cells in as good as any chemistry!

    Built this little puppy yesterday but im already in love with it, with a clip hooked up to a cap it makes an awesome headlamp!

    <edit> Pics clipped on mah cap!

    Sent my Surefire E1B for repair. The lens were scratched, and there were rattling sound inside the head. The boss at my local retail store told me I have to wait for a couple of months before Surefire send it back to them. I need a flashlight, want it in CR123 and don't want to spend too much on a spare light, so decided to get a Nitecore MT1C, and here it is:

    Got this yesterday and it will replace my Jetbeam RRT-0 I have been using.

    TAD Lenslight Mini Ti from the Eclipse Set. Pete Gray did a amazing job modifying the items in the set.

    Nice! I'll be interested to hear what you think of this as you get to know each other. Do you know what CRI that G2 is rated at?

    All I know is it is a High CRI CREE XPG-2 LED, its just a really cool looking light that is super floody when you want it to be and really focused when you want it to be. It is only 300 lumens but seems to utilize them better than the 550 of the jet beam. I personally wish I could put a lanyard on it instead of the Ti pocket clip it has I like them much better on a flashlight.
