Olight i3s should be here Tuesday, adding it to the keys
Finally decided to pull the trigger on a McGizmo and put in an order for a SunDrop XR-U with an XP-G2.
Does a TEC-S323 fob with green tritium count? If so it's on the way!
Just received an HDS 120E high CRI 3700K.
Very first impression: underwhelmed.
Then after maybe 5 minutes of using it I had a sudden 180 in attitude. Wow. After using it for two days I completely understand why everyone raves about these lights.
I am very glad I got this quite warm emitter.
Another Olight i3s, lost another one and an Eagletac d25a clicky neutral
I just picked up a SolarForce L2T (Stainless). Yesssss!
Hmmm.....going to need to start picking up some more drop-ins now....
Surefire G2Z incandescent, bnib. I have issues.
Muyshondt Mako Ti. Can't wait.
Oh man that will be a nice one. I almost got a Muyshondt Aeon one of the last ones but could not get the funds together.
Ya after I bought the aeon I was hooked on his lights, I don't like the titanium aeon (strange for me to prefer Al over Ti) the black and brass compliments each other well.
My exact reaction to my Zebralight h502w. Much warmer than anything else I have. Underwhelmed at first, now it is all I use.
I also thought about a ZL H52Fw for up close work. These models all have low lows eh?
Very low. I can use it at night without ruining my night vision. Quick click for high. Hold down to cycle low-med-high. So easy to start from either side of the spectrum. Very nice.
I have a Fenix E12 on the way for myself and a Fenix E05 in purple for my wife...

2 Fenix PD35 on it´s way. Was looking for a good AA flashlight actually, but couldn´t settle for one.
Read that the Fenix PD35 uses 2 CR123 or one 18650 battery. Which of the two options should I choose?
Congratulations on your new purchase! I love Fenix lights, myself, and I'm sure you'll be very pleased with this one.
The general rule of thumb, as far as CR123 vs. 18650 goes is:
If you're going to be using the light rarely, but want it to work - even if it's a year down the road - even in less-than-friendly weather- choose lithium CR123 (primaries), and don't worry about it. You're all set, and the expense will be minimal.
If you are going to use the light heavily, prefer better run times and performance, and are comfortable with the use (and the expense) of lithium ion batteries, get the lithium ions, the charger, and go with those. Just be sure to read up on safety issues to consider, with these batteries, and you should be fine.
Lithium ions will seem expensive on the outset, but will pay for themselves very quickly, with repeated use. You can charge them hundreds of times. But, they do slowly lose their charge (and I mean - slowly), so keeping one in a flashlight that's rarely used isn't cost-effective, or dependable, when you need a light once in a great while, and don't want to be bothered with whether or not there is a sufficient charge on that battery.
There are also many safety considerations you need to be aware of, when using lithium ion batteries, and there's a great thread, right here on EDCF, on this very subject:
Here is an excellent thread on Candle Power Forums, on benefits and comparisons between 18650 and CR123 batteries:
I hope this helps, some. Enjoy your new PD35

This one arrived today. For those that know me on CPF, I have a terrible weakness when it comes to CR2 lights - though it is a burden I am most happy to bear.
Wow, great information. Thank you very much! I guess the CR123 should work for me then.
Got a Preon 1 in my pocket and a Fenix Ld-20 in the backpack
