OK, I tried to stay away from this thread…..but I just kept getting drawn back in!

I used to be a MagLite junkie, but eventually went full LED in much smaller packages. Didn't need the heft of the 'Club' and found these little beauties to have a very usable beam pattern and more than enough brightness for my needs.

This is my preferred brand: Inova T-Series

I use the T-1 around the house (have several in convenient places, The T-2 is always in the left tool pocket of my Carhartt work pants and the T-3 is in the van console.

I use rechargeable A-123 cells in all of these, and they have performed flawlessly over the last 7 years or so since I began acquiring them.

Sorry for the flashlite envy.….I tried to stay away……I really did…….but…….but...…but that's what Craig's List and eBay are for

I have used these every day for 7 years and they really are up to the task! In this case, you really get what you pay for!

Now you know what I'm talking about when I say SuperTrouper!
http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...rc-Stage-Light

Not liquid cooled but a great light (or lamp as we say). At several hundred pounds not very much use as a flashlight but would be excellent for a stand up comic or local musician at a campground show!

Let's see, (3) 12Volt AGM batteries in series for 36 Volts and a 45 amp draw....... Hmmmmmm.

Step 1 is admitting that you have a problem.

Personally, I have several Maglites. I've been switching over to LED ones. I have a generic LED "bulb" for my old 3D Maglite, but it developed the notorious switch problem. Fortunately for me, when I looked up official repair places, I found one right here in Little Rock—I could just drop it off.

Given how long the batteries last, I'm moving away from 3 cell lights. These things, batteries, travel in pairs and mate for life. You have to breakup a battery family unit and mostly discard one partner.

Lately, I've been considering Pelican flashlights. I've been using one of their camera cases for years, great product. I've picked up a couple of their penlights that use AAAA batteries to keep in my jacket pocket.


Amazon.com: Pelican 1830 L4 LED Flashlight, Yellow: Sports & Outdoors

That's a couple, because they are easy to lose.

One of my best friends helps me feel OK about my personal flashlight problem. As long as I don't have a 8500-lumen HID flashlight (searchlight?) that came in its own custom-fit roadie case, my problem is under control. We may be crazy, but he's worse.

Thumbs up

Look what the DW brought back from one of her mystery 6hr browsing excursions. (men shop, women browse)

Cheep 5 bucks, magnet base, red flashing strobe, bright trouble and OK flash.

It was really a bribe as we were very late for a fun family eating adventure.
