    More flashlights :)

    I got my Solarforce L2X limited edition body in today from Illumination Gear, along with the 493 lumen (approx 400 OTF lumens) ThruNite dropin LED module. It's pretty cool. I can't wait for it to be dark outside so I can compare it to my other lights.

    It should be brighter than my P20C2 Mi II and T20C2 Mk II Eagletacs

    When purchased in the normal bodies - Solarforce lights are a great light for the money...

    Heck, this makes 5 Solarforce lights for me now (they are basically surefire clones)





    And here are the 2 noticeably cool models I have in my Solarforce collection

    I don't understand; what are the spikes for, and why so many? Do you carry them in states that don't allow concealed handguns, to throw at bad guys?

    Which one, the cool strike bezel or the other one? Or the standard ones?

    No, I don't generally carry them as a weapon. I do carry a small light with me most of the time. Sometimes I'll carry that silver, gun metal one - as the strike bezel is pretty sharp. The one with the large stainless bezel - I just bought it because it looks cool.

    Picked up a Maglight LED today to use until I can find the surefire I misplaced on a camping trip. No, I'm not posting a picture next to your fancy ones...

    Oh, you know you want to order another light

    What is amazing is that with the newest tech, even a 1 AA light will blow a maglight out of the water. Mag is unfortunately way behind the LED tech curve. I have a 3D LED mag light I keep at work, but it's really low output compared to the R2 and R5 LEDs

    I'd love to order a few, but probably won't. I only picked up the (3)AA Mag LED because it is made in USA. I think it's about 100 lumens, but I don't recall. Hopefully I'll locate the Aviator sooner or later.

    Oh Bother. You talked me into it.

    Found a Solarforce L2i AAA/18650/CR123A R5 XP-G Cree on eBay. I'm not entirely sure what all that crap stands for, but I did read 320 lumens in there somewhere. That should brighten things up a bit.

    Mucho cool.

    Be aware that they also sell just the flashlight bodies in some instances. So, make sure ya get one with the LED included (you can also buy those seperately)

    I noticed that. Bodies seemed to be going for around $15. The one I chose was $22. Not a bad price. No battery, but single emitter LED is included. I'll see what shows up at the door I guess.

    eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

    Still haven't recieved the Solarforce LED light from eBay. Maybe it wasn't such a great deal afterall!

    Sent them a note. They said it must have been lost. Will ship again though. We'll see...
