    22.3%

    I've got an S1R Mk1 in black. It's easy to carry, and even gets used as a headlamp, when clipped to the bill of my baseball cap. Amazing bit of kit :)

    Thorfire stainless steel 1xAAA. TS07. Now discontinued (unfortunately, I didn't see that coming & didn't get a backup). It has a L-M-H tail switch, will candle stand, and is very short--even with the tail switch, it's about like a Maratac AAA

    Wow, in post #107 above, I describe how, thanks to this forum, I learned about the Quantum DD from Valeno and bought one in 2013. Believe it or not, I am still carrying it on my keychain, it still works and I still think the tritium tubes in it are great for a keychain light so you can always find your keychain in the dark. I certainly can't complain about 6 years of service from a flashlight. I can't think of any other 6 year old light I am still using

    I carry an Ultrafire UF-6880 that I got for $12. Good quality, uses 18650 batteries which is great since I have a lot of 18650 batteries for my vapes. Around 850 lumens, manual focusing, and USB charging. I liked it so much that I have around 4 of them, 2 of them are in my vehicles and the car kits. I've dropped it numerous times, but this light, despite being inexpensive, is very durable. It's too big to carry in pocket, but it's always in which ever bag I'm carrying. You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a good light.

    I’ve been carrying a Lumintop Tool AA light with an eneloop for 8 months or so. It lives clipped on my back right pocket next to my wallet.

    An 18350/16340 Nitecore EC11 and a Nitecore Sens AA. I’m becoming conscious of carrying spare batteries so I will probably standardise on AA that go in my GPS, shaver, radio etc...

    I've come to the conclusion that you can't truly use just one. Although the S1 Baton is :censored: close to perfect.

    I personally love my X7S which is both a lighter and flashlight. The problem with the X7S is that it is mostly a multitool and a compact one at that. It rests in my wallet 24/7 but I don't use it as my primary light. I keep the Mecarmy MOT10 in my bag because it is both a strong flashlight AND works as a power-bank for my electronics. I also keep the Nightfox K3 around because it is both cheap (under $10), has a reversible clip, 3 useful modes including moonlight, uses a standard AAA battery, and has a diffuser.
