My modest collection

For some year, I have been absorbed by a passion like most of you on this forum Smile
During that time, some different flashlights passed through my hands. There are those that I really like and use. Of course, a few of them had to be modified to be happy.
On the way to me is ThruNite TC20 and the next one will be TN42.

My collection:

From left:
- Utorch UT02, modified resistor R100 and paste MX-4 change
- BLF Q8, improved connections, you do not need more because it’s a refined flashlight
- Skilhunt H03, here I have nothing to improve Smile
- Utorch UT01, switch improvement, LED replacement for XP-L HI U6-3A, shortening of tail springs
- Lumintop SDMIni, replacing the cold diode on XP-L HI U6-3A
- Nitecore TIP CRI, a great addition to the keys, I did not change anything.

Excellent collection, no need to be modest at all. I like how you have carefully selected the lights for each purpose. The mods showcase your attention to detail and your knowledge!

The quality of light is very important to me, probably because I am a photographer, computer scientist and electronics :). Every day I’m dealing with photo processing, correct white balance, etc. That’s why in my collection there are lights in the range of 5000K. I try to have well-thought-out shopping and as you have noticed, I have lights for various purposes. I take into account not only the quality of light, but also power, weight and size, and UI. I like everything very much and practically everybody uses it. Such a little whim will be the purchase of TN42 but I just like it.

Nice collection, Komeko.

If you want, you could also post your collection in the collection thread.

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

Small upgrade. I made another UT02 modification, now it’s almost 6A on the tail. I got 1742 lumens thanks to it. I wonder if it looks like a comparison to Thrunite V6:


I could not resist and another lamp ordered. This time Noctigon Metero M43 in XP-G2 S4 3D version.
What will be next? Maybe TN42, V6, MF01, MF02, DQG Tiny 26650.

Very nice, well-rounded collection! I have the Q8 & TC20, and like them both very much. Enjoy!

Nice collection. I have the Q8,TC20, and H03 headlamp. They’re all great lights. You say you’re interested in the Astrolux MF02. I got one a couple of weeks ago in neutral white. I love it. It’s by far my best thrower. I also have a ThruNite V6 in cool white. It doesn’t throw as far as the MF02, but it’s much smaller, and not nearly as heavy.
