You people are amazing.

I have got not much of a collection going.

These are the lamps I actually use.

Dereelight dbs v3 (my throw light for walking the dog at night)

My EDC Rotation:
Olight S1R II
Olight S1 mini HCRI
Lumintop Tool AAA copper

Lumintop Tool AAA (backup)

Led Lenser P3 (I use this one when I’m looking for something in the house, the narrow beam helps me focus)

And that noname AAA is usually strapped to my bicycle as a makeshift headlight.

I have others scattered around the house and car, but mostly these are cheap AA / AAA I did not like enough to find a decent use for.

And keeping the collection small in my opinion is better.

For your next light, I think you should step up to a Convoy S2+ SST-20. You will positively love it.

Nice collection X3. Is that Olight in the back right corner the M3XS-UT Or M2XS-UT ? I only ask because I don’t know if it is the M3XS-UT with the extension tube removed. I like my M3XS-UT. However, with only 1,200 lumens and 1,000 meters of throw, these days I am not keeping up with the Joneses. Not that I need too, but high lumen lights are fun if they can maintain them. I say I do not need to becuase I have done very well with less than 1,000 lumen lights. Yes, bullets I have had whizzing over my head many times, and pistols pointed at my face at six inches away from me. (Twice). But the lights are fun that put out a lot of lumens. That is why I bought a Marauder X7 back in 2016. Now, 9,000 lumens might be a joke today, two years plus later. But wait until that poorly made Imalent 100,000 lumen toy, (yes I called it a toy) Will be dethroned by a light that puts out 20,000 lumens of throw or flood or a mixture flood/throw with Malkoff, Elzetta, or Surefire reliability. In the circles I run in it will be king. YMMV, and trust me I am not a fanboy, I currently own Surefire, Olight, and Emisar. Not many brands, but I will add more Chinese brands I feel is quality. I will buy a Emisar D18 and an Elzetta this year. Side note, I took four lights to my pool back in 2015. I told my then girlfriend which lights would die in which order. They were all cleaned and lubed with Nyogel before the submersion test. I had A Fenix, Nitecore, 4 sevens, and a Olight. From previous quirks the lights gave me, except for the Olights I told her The Nitecore will die first and the Olight will die last. Yes that happened and the other two were in between. The lights got to a depth of 2 meters with me swimming with them. All lights died except the Olight that night. The next morning the Olight S1 Baton came on for a few minutes. I turned it off. Later I turned it back on and it flickered and finally died too.

/ with sympathy Wink ON /
This is a test
Made by me several years ago; The small flashlight cost $1.5 and provided me with a lot of data on the breaking points under continuous and violent impacts.
It would be really nice to have a similar test for the Elzetta or other brands reputed for their robustness. Not just hit by .12 buckshot; not simply dragged by a car, but in a blender of the appropriate size; steel blades, as if in violent and repeated contact with a motorboat propeller. Mine’s back on; yours? (if you do, I recommend not to put lithium batteries).

There’s a very old very large maglite missing from the pic, but this is most of them. Really should stop as I have something for most occasions and enough to lend out if need be, but you all know how that goes.

No pics right now my collection is small anyway I’m only a couple months in. Convoy S2+, Convoy S3, Astrolux C8, Fireflies E07, & just placed a order for the new Emisar D4V2. As for my C8 I ordered astrolux because it had more lumens than convoys C8 but now all the sudden I see convoy has a C8 with 2,000 lumens so I’m wanting it.
