    And yes, I ordered it, but will have to wait for a month, because I ordered it from China.

    All the highends are great but always great to keep some cheap backups to me...
    IE. I just ordered some Ultrafire mini cree pocket flashlights for a couple a bucks each, boasting 300 lumens and waterproof.

    Oddly, I haven't ordered a flashlight, since August 28:

    Left to Right:
    1. EagleTac MX25L3C (6-Nichia)
    2. Armytek Dobermann XP-L
    3. Solarforce LD-D18 with Sportac triple XP-G3 R5

    These three were the last ones I picked up in August. The Armytek Dobermann XP-L was the most recent one.

    DO YOU HAVE STOCK IN BATTERIES ? WOW :Juggle:
    ...as in, do I own stock in a battery company, or do I stock enough batteries to run all my 18650 lights?

    No, on the owning stock (I wish lol).
    Yes, on having enough batteries to run all my 18650 lights :D.

    Currently, 51 18650 batteries, running 40 lights, 32 of which are single 18650, 5 of which are 2-18650, and 3 3-18650 lights.

    Yes, I have a regular charging schedule (in the form of an elaborate spreadsheet). It'd be impossible to keep track of them all, without it.

    Truth be told, the 18650 battery is one of the most economical of them all, for heavy, long-term use. The initial cost hurts a little, but the economy of usage helps these batteries pay for themselves, in a very short time. It's lot less expensive over time, than having to throw out alkaline or lithium primary batteries out once every week or two. Only my D Maglites (3 of my 73 lights) are still running on alkalines, until I get around to picking up some Tenergy 10000 mAh NiMhs for them (kind of a low priority, since I use those lights so rarely).

    Every time I see a picture of someone's new Zebralight, I want to order an SC62W. I'll probably break down and do that this, or next month. Gotta have one :D :p.

    Ah yes, I saw those too but I didn't want to wait that long.

    In case you aren't looking at the general Olight thread; do not cut the rubber bands that hold the light to the cardboard in the packaging when yours arrives, those are your spare o-rings so take them off carefully.

    And a quick peek:

    It's awesome!
