After a year, I have such a collection. Of course, apart from H03, I was all modifying Wink .
What else do I need? I do not know. Maybe TN42 or V6? Maybe DQG Tiny 26650? What would you advise me? I have 26650, 18650 and 14500 batteries in stock Big Smile
I do not like the switch in the back.

After years I have finally got around to getting a display cabinet to put my lights in.

This is all I have left now as I have thinned down my collection over the last year and just kept the ones that are unique or ones I really like or use a lot.

@LSX: may I know which one do you like the most? ( if you can only have one, regardless of size, lumens, battery, etc.)

Hmmm that’s a really hard one because I like them all for different reasons. However one which I spent a bit of time on and find really useful is the Thrunite TN30, although it’s not like a normal TN30 anymore…

@komeko: Your BLF Q8 seems to be perfectly aligned in terms of the knurling on the head unit and the battery tube. Mine is unfortunately a bit displaced between head and battery tube when the thread becomes tightened.

I wanted to keep track of my emitters mostly…
You may have noticed a “free” column… I added it recently to feel a bit less guilty Innocent
The Olight collection has been thinned from the beginning, I owned each of their products from the last 3 years at least once… except the X9R Sad
I think the collection would be 150+ lights if I kept everything Silly

Y’all are gonna make me pull everything off the shelf and dust it off, make a list. And then I’ll have to charge cells for 2 days…!

Somewhat over 200 these days. One out for delivery as we speak. Big Smile (had to run around counting, 209 best as I can tell)

This is what I will bring there.

So has anyone ever taken all the collected flashlights out some dark night, turned them all on, and taken a picture?

My collection (130 lights), as of November 2019. ,This first photo is my modern LED lights collection (excluding Maglite, Convoy, and Olight i3E), which are shown in separate pictures below.  Direct download link (for zooming in) to high resolution photo HERE.

   

My Maglite collection. The aqua blue one (with silver bezel and end cap) is a rare Vari-Beam.  The long one on the bottom is a 10 D-cell Maglite (originally 6D), created with two extension tubes from Adventure Sports Flashlights.  Also, as I did with the Convoy S2+, some have had parts swapped for unique color combinations. Direct download link (for zooming in) to high resolution photo HERE.

 

My Convoy collection, mostly S2+ of various colors.  Parts were swapped for unique color combinations. The one on the far left (with white/yellow stickers) is a calibration light from BLF member maukka. Direct download link (for zooming in) to high resolution photo HERE.  The three in the back row are are the S21A, C8+, S11.

 

Olight i3E collection, including two of the special-edition tan ones (given away during an Olight 2019 promotion). Direct link (for zooming in) to high resolution photo HERE.

 

Vintage lights. All but two were new-in-box. Direct download link (for zooming in) to high resolution photo HERE.

 

My most expensive coke-can light, Acebeam X80.

 

 

Miscellaneous; increasingly rare Maglite 6C:

 

Additions; vintage Ray-O-Vac ML22, with unusual toggle switch.

 

Mint condition 7C Maglite (next to my 6C Maglite).

Nebo Redline 6K

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.
