    I've just added a LED Lenser K2 to my Key-Chain EDC to supplement my Fenix E12, I still have the Monarch 6 in the car.

    At this time, a Nitecore Tube on a breakaway neck lanyard; a Ti 1-CR123 in trouser pocket; a Ti 2-AAA next to a Ti Pen in a leather sheath in my sports coat or suitcoat breast pocket. Just before the sun goes down, a Surefire 2-CR123 combatlight is on my left hand until just before I go to bed.

    I'm still carrying my Fenix LD10 on my belt using a FourSevens holster. I stopped carrying my Preon Revo in favor of a Fenix E15. I was checking this thread and noticed I posted back in March of 2014 about the LD10 so that makes almost a year of contiuous carry for the same light with no malfunctions.

    Maratac AAA. It'll police a SAK toothpick in it's lanyard loop.

    It rides in my wallet. I can't stand big key chains.

    Fenix E01 on keychain. A variety of 2AA and 3AAA lights salted around depending on use. Would really like a 4AA daymaker, but I can't justify one.

    How many of you carry more flashlights at night? I almost always have one AAA light on me, but at night I will have my 2xAA light plus maybe a spare AAA light. Also, I carry one light on each side of my body. That way I don't have to shift whatever's in my hand to quickly get at a light. As far as carrying two lights goes, I though it was a little crazy, until the night I needed to walk along a busy road, then I was glad to have one light to search my area and another to make sure oncoming cars saw me. So, now when it's cold out, I just keep my 2xAA light in my coat, so I don't have to worry about remembering to bring it with me.

    I keep another light in the edc bag that rides along.

    It varies between a second Maratac AAA, Solarforce l2p, Fenix l2d, a headlamp, and an old Surefire single cr123a light.

    it is always changing, now more than ever. but lately ive got an HDS custom or Zebralight sc62c in my pocket after work.
    lately ive been bringing the sc62c to work in my pocket, and an sc52 in my bag as a back up.

    for awhile i had an Eagletac mx25l3 xh-p50 in my bag, but i have a tk35ue in the work truck at work and another xh-p50 in my car so i really didnt need to be lugging that 3/4 of a pound around w me.

    i think ill be moving my HDS to permanent work duty once the new Zebralight sc32 arrives, i think it will take over off work duty for awhile.

    edit: i dont have any lights on my keychain generally.

    Fenix L2D 2AA is always in a pocket or on my belt. I carry a Fenix LD41 at work. There's always a headlamp in my car for changing tires at night, and I keep another on my nightstand for power outages and when I'm just too lazy to get out of bed and turn on the light.
