    Fenix E01 (1-AAA, you probably know) on my keychain. I'll carry other lites if I think they'll be needed.

    The keychain Streamlight is the Nano. Also, I usually run the Fenix in my LF pocket and the Nano rides on my keychain which is typically carried on a brass clip attached to a belt loop and in my LR pocket.

    Here are the two Fenix torches I keep in my Remora copy EDC bag. The LD12 is kept on a pouch on the outside for easy access fastened to the bag to prevent loss by a grimlok. Great light, but much prefer the LD10 I gave to my brother ! The LD20 is stored in the bag in my Maxped pocket organiser with the filter attached. The diffuser is kept separately in the bag ...

    I also carry a Fenix EO5 on my keychain too ... Again great little light, long burn time and 27 lumen.

    On my key chain I carry a Veleno Designs D2. In that same pocket I carry a double AA flashlight as of late it has been the newest 4 seven (300+ lumens) or eagle tac (400+ lumens). On the outside on my bag i carry two high output long lasting glow sticks and a small but bright Gerber light/can opener. On the right side of my EDC bag I'm rocking my nitecore Thor and on the inside the nitecore MH2C.

    When outdoors I mostly carry my Fenix LD12 or my new Olight S15 single AA battery flashlight. And I also carry a keychain light (single AAA battery). When at home I carry just one light.

    Picture of my options:

    Almost always have a E2D defender in a Desantis pocket mag holster. Sometimes a e1b backup, when I feel like going light that day.

    Fenix E05 has been in my Maxpud micro pocket organizer that I slip into cargo pocket. I also have an E12 and a Nebo CSI (which is a surprisingly decent light for 9$).

    I have a Maglite solitaire that has been in my laptop bag for years. It's a woefully dim little thing compared to a fenix, but I have a soft spot for it.

    I own several flashlights. The two that are with me most of the time are a Fenix PD35 and PD22. The PD35 is what I use as my primary light for work and to carry with me personally (I may buy a second one because I like it so much). The PD22 is a small backup with the same functions at the PD35, just in a small package. I always have a light on me.

    I find a Maglite Solitaire LED (single AAA light) adequate for EDC. I keep it in the breast pocket of my jacket. I've tried various lights on my keyring or in my pocket with my knife; they always fall apart or get turned on and burn out.

    I carry a 4Sevens P2 in my Maxped pocket organizer that I keep in my work bag, and if I'm not carrying my bag it's my Preon 1 in my front pocket.

    Just ordered a cheap torch for either my car or my wife's from gearbest around $17 AUD, they even have Nitecore & Fenix which I might get.

    My son just found my Preon 1 lost for a month so I'm going to start carrying that again. Been carrying the V11R.
