Got my 219c D4 a day or 2 ago. Love it.

I’m sure this has been done before, but I’m amazed at how tiny it is, so here it is next to my Convoy S2+ EDC with an 18350, but the D4 has the 18650 tube:

I also got the 1830 tube, but at that size, I’m carrying it with the 18650 for a while.

Today I got my BLF A6 bare (non-anodized) in 5A, with an S41S / S42S (18650) Extension Tube.

Wow, I have to say it’s awesome with this tube, the nicest knurling I have! (most aggressive)

.

My idea was to have the aggressive knurling of the S41S/S42S on the aluminum A6 so it wouldn’t be as heavy as a full stainless light.

The 5A tint is BEAUTIFUL! Way nicer than my 3D A6!

My second Rofis MR70 arrived today. What a great light. I love this light. Very unique design with tons of utility. This is a very high quality light.

I am super pleased … Smile

A Liitokala Lii-S-1 Charger. It seems to work well so far. The display is off by 10 mv when compared to a Fluke 189

^^^ Amazing how something this affordable can be so good looking. LiitoKala is quickly gaining a cult status in my book. Cool

BTW, there is a flashing V when reading voltage. The picture caught it between flashes.

Haha… Yes! And it also doubles as a cheese grater or meat tenderizer. Silly

Jokes aside, it’s not an EDC for me, but actually no, it’s not uncomfortable in my pocket.

.

(obviously) I’m a HUGE fan of aggressive knurling. I’d be nice if someone with a lathe made aluminum tubes with aggressive knurling like this for our Convoys, s2+, C8’s etc. Wink

I’m not the only one who likes it. Smile

I got these pill bottles today, two in red, two in blue and two in green. I have had two pieces of a clear version for two years now but when I wanted more I could not find this version for sale since. And now I found them in colours Party

They are perfect for 18350 cells provided that you sand off 3mm off the top threading, see the red one in the picture (the green top is stock). The rim of the top clears the +pole of the battery by a good margin so that you can safely carry the battery with no possibility for shorting it.

Hjeh, I ordered a bunch of these in various colors. Not for cells, but loose stuff that’d probably otherwise get lost.

Dunno how hefty they might be, probably close to blow-molded Al-foil Big Smile but they still sound pretty useful.

Tnx for the pointer!

After buying a Lumintop SD26 from FrankA I figured I had to get it’s 18650 little brother. Cool little light. Picked up a Convoy S2+ as well. I don’t know why but I have never had one. Now that I do I really like it. Put the illuminated tail switch in it too. Be nice on the nightstand at night. Picked up another Ganzo too. Tried to get it in one of the Aluminum colors but I couldn’t find them anywhere. Oh well.

My new toy arrived

Yeah I had to change out the lanyard. The included on was ok but just looked tiny on this big of a light. I was out of black so until my order arrives these left overs will work.

Very nice. Don’t have anything bigger than the Q8 right now. Hopefully soon I will be able to order a mega lumen monster. Nice purchase my friend.

Yes it is. All of my lights have been pocket lights, s2+, wb502, and a tk15 in the mail. I can’t take any credit for this, all goes to very generous Gear Best. Otherwise there is no way I could justify spending this on a flashlight.

I was quickly informed by my 10 year old this is his light, lol. He is out of school today and we stayed up all night playing in the field lighting up the world.

I've been pondering (for many months) those 5K lumens custom Maglites that Matt builds at Adventure Sports Flashlights. Finally ordered a purple one.  Uses 2X 26650.

 

.

.

Dangerous in the wrong hands.  The turbo timer can be programmed to safe limits with the installed DrJonesGuppy2drv firmware. However, before adjusting the turbo timer (which is OFF out-of-the-box), I wanted to see how hot it would get after 15min.  Ouch.

Yikes! That’s dangerously hot indeed.

I like the way you two think. I have a 10 year old boy as well. We would have been outside all night going through batteries like we just won the lottery. I have been on a light buying frenzy the last few months. Time for me to slow down a bit and let the credit card cool off. Although everytime I say that another one pops up that I just HAVE to have.

Nice light. Hope you and the boy enjoy the heck out of it. Nice clean father/son time right there.

My Enogear SS AA light got here today. Cool little AA light. Plenty bright for what I will use it for. Nice 4500k tint. Tail clicky has a great quality feel to it. Has PWM in low and medium that I can’t notice but if I put my ear up to it and try real hard I can kind of hear it. If I wouldn’t have read about it somewhere I never would have noticed.

^ nice little light up there Smile

I got some pure decadence today, a 20.5mmx2mm sapphire lens.


I got it from this aliexpress seller for 9 dollar shipped and I assume it is legid sapphire: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/High-Quality-2-0mm-Thick-Sapphire-Watch-...

Weird enough I got a message that the item was not shipped, that the tranaction was closed and indeed I received my money back. I will send them a message that I still received it.

I bought it because of a recent discussion via PM about the advantages of HDS flashlights, and the only advantage I could see over a S2+ was the sapphire lens.
Now that is solved for my current EDC, bring in that truck to run it over! Big Smile

Why does it look like a plastic centering ring is sitting inside the reflector instead of under it?
