    I decided I liked the Olight i3T so much (I bought a pair on an Amazon flash deal) that I decided to try the i5T for its increased physical size and output - 30/150/300 lumens. The i3T is 5/180 which makes for a nice nightstand light.

    O-pen flashlight & pen. I often (well, before COVID-19 anyway) take notes in the dark during theatre rehearsals. Thinking this would be just the thing when (if) we ever get back to having live performances.

    I took a flyer on the redesigned Streamlight Protac 90 X USB. They now have a max high of 1000 lumens (from 300), and while remaining multi-fuel, comes with their SL-B26 battery pack (also can run 2 CR123 batteries). I wanted to try a right angle light and almost went with the earlier model but decided to try the new one instead. It's a little bigger as the original version takes a single CR123 or AA battery. I have mixed feelings about spending about $25 more for this version which doesn't list an AA option. Due to arrive this coming week. This is a light for home use and to, hopefully, replace my Night-Ops Gladius which is a brilliant (so-to-speak) light but only 80 lumens. It was one of the best of the best from the old days of tactical LED lights.

    lmao, I hear ya. I just hate the color red. Figured with my luck of course it will be the color I get. Guess I'll find out in 2 days.

    EDIT: Well mine arrived early, got the green one and it did come with a charging cord. Thought it said the "free" ones wasn't coming with one. Over all It's a nice little light for $5. I wouldn't ever give more than that for a light with a built in battery. I'll most likely stick with my 16340 S2+ as my daily but I can see my g/f wanting this one.

    Mine showed up this morning - it's the gray color. Also, it's an awesome little flashlight!

    I got my Streamlight 90x USB the other day and it's wonderful but, alas, the lens was cracked. The dealer was excellent and the replacement arrived today and is 100%. For me, this light is perfect as a home/bedside/defensive/security light. Held like a pistol with the 90 degree head, it's ergonomically pleasing to me and easier on my aging hands. Instead of a tail switch, it has a button up behind the head and it's very easy to access. Highly recommended for those looking for a tactical light with the right angle head. A zillion outdoor uses for clipping on a vest, belt, shirt pocket, etc. This will absolutely replace my aforementioned Gladius from all those years ago. Dual fuel as well - the included rechargeable Streamlight battery and cable or a pair of CR123s. Surprised this new light has not been reviewed on YT yet! All you find is the earlier 300 lumen version. The X model goes to 1000.

    I got my replacement ProTac 90X USB and I like it so well, I ordered a second for the rig. This is an amazing flashlight, especially for people who like the right angle design.

    For grins, giggles, a 20% off coupon, no sales tax, and free shipping I ordered the new Fenix E12 V2.0 from the Fenix Store. I have a couple of the originals but the new version is brighter, has a longer run time on low, AND a pocket clip. Good deal for $21.56!
