    Yes, they lego, I'll get some pics up tomorrow.

    The change I really like is the new clip. Much easier to slide onto a pocket.

    Just got a couple of Nitecore SRT3s. These are really nice little lights. Not cheap or at least I didn't shop around. I would say much better all around (more modes, better UI) than my Sunwayman M11R and with easily as nice a finish. I think the construction and materials on the Sunwayman feel slightly better but then again that light is not without its problems and I paid more for the M11R than I did for the SRT3.

    The Nitecore comes with a AA extender (I had to pay extra to get one for my Sunwayman), more modes, a very nice moonlight and constantly variable (M11R has only fixed stops but V11R which I didn't buy for other reasons does). Also takes a lot of different batteries, 14500s are recommended by Nitecore as working well.

    Just received the Operator L1 from LA Police Gear. A little too big for EDC but a nice looking, very bright light.[​IMG]

    I got an Olight M2R Warrior in the mail today. Incoming I have a Mini Giga Thrower and a Copper Convoy S2+ heading my way. In theory my buddy is building me a custom tripple and fixing another one I had gotten that was malfunctioning that I probably should have returned. He's been super busy and hasn't had time to do either yet.

    For some odd reason I just wanted a Fenix E01. Don't know why. Just thought it was a classic.

    I have a Lander rechargeable smart lantern incoming. I'd never heard of such a thing before but I was doing some research after one of my battery banks died and discovered Lander. The lantern doubles as a 10,000 mah power supply as well. Very interesting product of it works as advertised.

    Sorry,,,just realized the title said incoming,,,,,,it is here!

    TN42vn 90 W/CFT-90 LED.

    Yes,,,at Turn that is 1.05 Million cds! 988Kcd after 30 seconds. The LED is very expensive. $130. I looked at it closely and noticed it is NOT centered within the "Square Box". When I measured it, it is exactly in the center of the LED circular opening which is what

    The light is unbelievable. It is also way too expensive. I sold a $400 TK75vn QUAD. to help pay for it!:unsure:

    A few beam shots.Actually,,,several!

    The First 3 photos were taken from the Prototype version last winter. The finished version[mine] is an additional 500 lumens and 100Kcd. It also has a much more efficient driver where I get much better run times.

    The little speck at the end of the beam is a water tower that is 1787 yards away-1 mile 27 yards.

    Another water tower 1.1 miles away

    One more. Here is a picture my assistant took from the water tower to my launch site! This was a trail shot from 902 yards away.It is the light in the center NOT the 4 lights to the right creating light pollution!

    Thanks for the "Likes" everyone,the only thing not to like is the price!

    I've had this Olight i3T for a few days now. I got it to replace my Streamlight, and I don't get why I don't see more of them on here. It's great, two modes and a pocket clip that can be used in two directions, AA size and not too expensive.

    @Journo: re Streamlight Microstream vs the Olight i3T. Maybe. just inertia -- the Microstream has been out there quite a while. May also be that with the Microstream using a AAA cell it is just slightly lighter and smaller in diameter. I kinda doubt that those differences in size/weight are significant though.

    I run Streamlight products myself; at the time this was influenced both by tremendous popularity on these forums plus the relatively low pricing.

    Now that I think about it, maybe (?) there's also an element of belief it is an American company whereas not so for Olight? Just a wild-:censored: guess!

    L'chaim!

    I have the Olight i3T, a Fenix LD02 and 3 Fenix E01s on the way,on a AAA kick here lately. The i3T is a AAA not AA ,don't know if it is larger than the Microstream as I presently don't have either light yet. I think the i3T may be getting overlooked due in part to the big output difference between low and high. Some people want a medium mode and are likely to opt for a 3 mode light instead. Streamlight is a U.S. company but much of their product line is still made in China so that isn't as big a selling point for me personally.

    The LD02 V2 was too enticing for me to pass up combining warm and UV in the same light at a reasonable price. The E01s are just good lights to have for a BOB,car,back-up etc.

    Thanks everyone. The ONLY negative is cost! I sold Three modified lights and a few hundred dollars to get this! A bit insane but so worth it to me. My other modded lights seem weak and inconsequential now!:unsure: Also the photos are clear and decent, but do not do the real life experience any justice.

    Thanks to work I’ve now got 5 Microstreams coming. Thanks to this forum I’m going to try the 10440 hack.

    Since I upgraded to the Olight i3T, I have a Microstream that just sits on my desk. Maybe it's time to copy you.

    Also 5?!

    I can't buy anything for me personally. I can only purchase for each "camera bag" we have. Plus when purchasing from Government vendors you sometimes have to have a minimum dollar amount. So, yep 5 of those bad boys! ;-)
