we have the same exact fw3a! neat! nice collection by the way.

Thanks, it was the cheapest model for a while at Banggood and a nice colour so definitely the logical one to get if you wanted one with SST-20s.
My MF01 Mini is also silver although I went for 4000k.

cool, yea i got my fw3a off amazon, it was the second light i bought after the thrunite t10 II, before i discovered neals gadgets and others.

I went back and forth with the mf01 mini between 5000k and 4000k (since i knew from my fw3a the 4000k would most likely ne great) but went with output over cct ultimately..

Just got a new Maglite Mini in the mail today in a color I have never seen before. It’s orange like a Cheeto. Love it. Love seeing these huge flashlight collections too. Lots to aspire to.

New member so this is what I’ve collected before joining BLF. I’m kind of guessing that most lights will be well known so I’ll just give the picture:

Actually not complete, it’s missing a Tool AAA with a nice tinted 219b, my sister needed a small light and she found the one with the big button handiest so she can use it.

In these photos it is a part of my collection; I struggled a bit to put them together because normally, apart from the flashlights that are always charged and ready to use, the others are in metal and insulated boxes (Faraday) and my wife doesn’t want me to mess up, so I owed them photograph a little at a time and then put them back where they were.
You quickly realize that I have a collection …. dated, and that is very much in keeping with the spirit of cheap flashlights of this Forum. In the next few hours/days I will add the list with the names and any changes made.

- Ultrafire WF-503b SS (I have two but not sure where the other one is)
- Solarforce L2T with P60 3x SST20
- Manker Laborer
- Manker Rambler
- Manker Torch Club, (I have two, the second has XHP50 3Volt)
- In the foreground the small Trustfire mini-02 SS 16340


- NAGE 6x XML 3×26650
- Ultrafire (Mod.?) XHP50 1 level
- Flashlight SS (brand ? Mod.?) xml2
- Revtronic MT-20 (I have two, the second has XHP50 3Volt)
- Sofirn SD05
- KDLITKER C8.2 XHP50
- KDIY KF8 XHP50
- JKK26 (I have two, the first one with XHP50)


- Favour M-flare (LED Rebel90, 4X “D”)
- Beamtech T6 (xml, 2×18650)
- Ultrafire C1, P60 XHP50
- Soshine (XML2, USB)
- Favour Angle (2x CR123a or 1×16650)
- Nitenumen NE01 (I have 5 between first and second version)
- Ultrafire (uses 26650 and has an XHP35 1 level)
- Small Sun ZY-T08
- Ultrafire (2/3×26650 5x XML)
- Ultrafire (3xXML)

Why do you keep your torches in Faraday cages?

It is a precaution; my collection of flashlights is part of my “emergency warehouse”, where I have a little bit of everything, from food to batteries, from toilet paper to communication tools (Walkie Talkie, flares, etc.).
Each of these instruments is protected in relation to the dangers that can alter its functions.
Flashlights usually have a metal casing, which however is connected to the negative pole and therefore to the electronics and this makes them sensitive to any strong solar storms (Carrington); it is only for this reason that they are inside metal casings, isolated from the walls (in the Faraday cage the electricity is outside, but also inside the metal walls).

Considering I have probably over 200 lights, no way I would list them all. I especially have many Astrolux, Sofirn, Olight, Thrunite, Lumintop, Convoy, and Nitecore. It is easier to name brands I do not have any of…Acebeam, Ultrafire, Wurkkos, and Jetbeam to name a few. My main collection actually began with Voidhawk, which were all focus type lights. Most of my lights range from 30 bucks to 300 bucks. My collection is insane, with most stored in large plastic storage containers. My collection of lights are rivaled by my collection of knives, and vape gear. I am unsure which is larger, but in all cases I tend to have way more than 1 of each. I have six Lumintop Tool AA v2 for example and 5 of the Astrolux FT03 SST40-W. My very expensive 200+ dollar lights I have only 1 of. My most used light is the Lumintop tool AA v2. Other favorites are the Astrolux FT03 SST40-W…a great value thrower, and the Lumintop GT micro which has been modified with the Osram led for a rated 809 meter throw. Do not know if it is over stated, but the throw is amazing from such a small light. The even more tiny Nano is good for maybe 10 minutes, but that tiny battery goes quickly. I have 1 of the modified GT micro in aluminum, and 2 in brass…well counting the one purchased but not yet delivered. I really have not counted them all, but I have over 200 for sure. I am not including the cheap throw away lights.

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

I feel like its been awhile since i posted, and almost my entire lineup has changed since the last time i posted here. these are my edc's, i dont have a picture of my large throwers or holster carry lights at the moment. Of course the rot66 and mf01 mini aren't edc, but i keep these 12 together in the same spot. i have 6 more coming in, so will post another picture in a couple weeks when those arrive. Obviously i like to share the pictures, but its nice for documenting for myself too.

I have procrastinated listing my lights here, but I decided to go ahead and do so, while both me and the human race are still alive.


1. Four-Sevens MMU-X3. Oct. 2014, 1,600 lumens. I did well selecting my first real light, this permanently classic item will be forever beloved by flashoholics. In its time, this light boldly demarcated the division between lights that were smaller than it, and lights that were larger than it.
Nice beam profile, too. There is no way that I could have picked a better item at the time.


2. Niwalker MM15. Nov. 2014, 5,233 lumens. Selfbuilts’ review of this item had me utterly transfixed for weeks. I could not take another contented breath until I had it in my hands. No classic collection is complete without this ground-breaking hand-held floodlight.


3. Eagletac SX25L3 kit. Feb. 2015, 2,375 lumens, 317 meters. I got this because Selfbuilt always included it in his comparative tables in his reviews, and because of its power/size ratio. I love its “gadgety” feel and I also love the Eagletac build style/quality.


4. Noctigon Meteor M43vn XP-L dd. June, 2015, Approx. 7,400/8,400 lumens. Oozing gob-loads of cachet, this light will forever have its place at the pinnacle of true classics.


5. Thrunite TN36UTvn. Jan. 2016, 13,400 lumens. The ceiling bounce monster of its time. I edced it for a few months. That’s how excited I was about it. My most “beat up” light, from work horse use.


6. MM15 MBvn. Feb. 2016, 9,000 lumens. The must-have successor to the original ultra classic MM15.


7. Olight S2 Baton. Feb. 2016. 1,000 lumens.  I edced this light for four years until very recently. Much used,  never a bobble.


8. Acebeam EC50vn, May, 2016; 3100 lumens. The item for max power in its size in Spring 2016.


9. Eagletac MX25L4Cvn XP-L pdt kit. July 2016, 5,000 lumens. Nice beam profile, provided by the four non-overlapping reflectors. A great looker, too.


10. Fenix TK75vnQ70. Aug. 2016, ~16,000 lumens. I used it every night for a few months, and I am thrilled by it every moment. Currently the oldest light in my “A” list use line-up.


11. Acebeam K70vn. Sept. 2016, 2,471 lumens. Autumn 2016 is when I surprisingly became amazed at dedicated throwers. I bought it just to have such an item, and I instantly became thrilled at what the beam does.


12. Acebeam X65vn. Dec. 2016, 11,500 lumens. I became super excited as soon as its specs were released months before the light itself was released. This light  has the beam performance that I always wanted from other lights that just can not do what this can do.


13. TN42 vn.  Feb. 2017, 2,400 lumens. The logical successor to the K70.


14. P60vn Quad XP-L HD 2 cell host Cryos Cu head. March 2017.  4,300 lumens from a light in its size class: Not bad at all.


15. Acebeam X65vn.  March 2017, 11,200 lumens. Not being content with the first one that Vinh got, I needed another one of these superlative beam generators for my other hand. Combined beam from both is amazing.


16. Manker MK34vn spec 5. April 2017, 7,650 lumens. In its time, it was the item that had the perfect balance of max power for its size.


17. TM06Svn XHP50.2. May 25, 2017, 9,800 lumens, In its time, it had the perfect balance of max power and runtime for its size. One of two modded thusly.


18. Acebeam X45vn XHP70.2. June 19, 2017, 25,000 lumens. I requested and received the KG Tuning specimen from Vinh. I used this light nightly  for 2.5 years for routine chores at the community meeting hall that I operate.


19. Imalent R90TS. July 16, 2019. 36,000 lumens, 1750 meters throw. 18x XHP35, 8× 21700 Samsung 40T, two fans. Beam profile similar to X65, but with a little more throw and some more beam width, and some more spill, with more lumens on the target at given range, but in the form of a larger hotspot. Currently the King of Power Throw. Huge beam performance and well-tempered beam profile from a very big light.


20. Acebeam K75vn. Sept. 3, 2019, 6,300 lumens, 2,500 Meters, 1.57Mcd. The logical successor to the TN42. More throw, and more beam width than TN42.  Currently the King of Throw.


21. Imalent MS18. Oct, 21, 2019. 18 x XHP70.2, 100,000 lumens. Huge power from a very big light. Currently the King of Flood.


22. 47s MMU-X3vn 3 x XHP50.2, Dec. 17, 2019, 5,500 lumens, 346 meters, 30Kcd. A true classic, brought up to current speed.


23. Nitecore TM9Kvn, 9 x stock XP-L2 6500, Jan. 6, 2020, 9,500/268 meters. My first “tactical” light, whatever that means, but that is not why I bought it. Power to size ratio is why.


24. Nightwatch NSX3vn Jan 27, 2020. Stock 3 x XHP 50.2 8,000 lumen, 375 meter, 35Kcd. A red hot screamer for its size. Throw is best of numbers 22 through 25 inclusive, too.  I am so excited about this lights’ beam performance to size ratio that I ordered three more. Even though this item is in a smaller size and performance class than the X45, I am using it for nightly chores around the facility instead of the X45, just to put it through its paces.


25. Nitecore E4K vn, Jan. 30, 2020. Factory 4 x XP-L. 4,000 lumens, 261 meters throw.


26. Emisar D4V2 vn, Feb. 22, 2020, quad W2.1, 4,020 lumens, 429 meters with throw optics. Single 18650. Midway size between S2 Baton and E4K. After four years, this is the replacement for my super trusty S2 Baton. 


27. Lumintop FW3Avn triple W2.1 Feb. 28, 2020, 2,800 lumens, 425 meters throw. Currently the most compact high power single 18650 flashlight, I think. The firmware has more personality than most of the people that I know.


28. Lumintop FW4Avn, quad W2, throw optic. April 13, 2020, 3,850 lumens, 456 meters throw. Currently the most compact high power single 18650 flashlight, I think. Picture perfect emitter alignment, providing for picture perfect beam pattern.


29, 30 and 31: Three Lumintop 21a Pro Vn, May 26, 2020, single 21700, triple XHP50.2. 9,500 lumens, ~350 meters throw. The next big thing in the Lumintop FW series.


32. and 33: Two Imalent MS03, June 15, 2020. Triple XHP70.2. Single 21700 protected usb-c, or with large solder blob. 9,535 lumens, 313 meters. Smallest triple XHP70.2, I think.


34. Mateminco MT07 vn 7 x W2. June 16, 2020. 8,000 L, 678 M, 115KCD. Very attractive combination of power, throw and size.


35. Astrolux (Mateminco?/Sofirn?) EC03 July 9, 2020. 21700 3 x XHP50.2, 6700 lumens, 303 meters. Factory specs appear to be under reported. Smooth, ample reflector wells and ample SS bezel impart good looks. Much tighter hot spot than other single 21700 3 × 50.2 lights.


36. Noctigon KR1vn SBT90 single 18650 July 24, 2020.


37. Emisar D18vn 18xW2 3× 18650 July 24, 2020. 15,500 lumens, 748 meters throw, in a 3 × 18650 package.


38. and 39: Two more Astrolux(Mateminco?Sofirn?) EC03, August 4, 2020.


40. Astrolux MF05 SBT90.2 8 × 18650 August 24, 2020. 5,000 lumens, 3,162 meters.

41. BLF GT94 Oct 19, 2020. 4 x SBT90.2, 8 × 18650 button top. LOP. After a four year wait, the first light that has both more throw and more lumens than the X65.

42. Another BLF GT94 Nov. 13, 2020. 4 x SBT90.2, 8 × 18650 button top. Smooth. Arrived 14 days after I ordered it. This one is so I can have one in each hand, and feel the exhilaration.

43. HK90vn driver VNX2. Nov. 14, 2020. 3 × 21700 40T solder blob top, 3 x SBT 90.2. 14,000 lumens; 1732 meters.

46. Another Nitewatch NSX53, Dec. 24, 2020.

Thanks, I posted a link to a pic recently in this forum: https://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1761851#comment-1761851

 

https://ibb.co/dgtfVGC(link is external)  <- pic link. 

 

That pic is only a few of them, all in one pic is too small. Also, I have attached recent pics on another forum. https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?246042-What-LED-flashlight-is-sitting-on-your-nightstand&p=5429167#post5429167

Sorry about the external link; it is so much easier for me to attach pic to a forum. My apologies.

You have a very nice collection. Thanks for posting your nice collection!

The world is so confusing and bewildering. Just getting through life one moment at a time. Ok, which flashlight forum am I on right now? I got it narrowed down to one or two of three. Taxes. Death. Anaphylaxis. Stop. Go. Wait. Hurry. Deal with life on earth. Double check that I am really on the light forum that I think I am on.

 

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

OK, here is the pretty much completed arsenal as of now. I have (1) more coming in - the Wildtrail WT90 sbt90 thrower. After that, i will probably be halting purchases until something awesome and new comes along that i really "NEED" lol. Or, a used K75 comes along that is $200 or less LOL, that i would buy today if available. Anyway.. about the lights, some notes:

-I just remembered - i have a copper FT03s packed away i forgot to take out for the picture

-All the aux LEDs are set to blue or magenta because i set them to monitor battery life

-The 5 smaller lights that are all the same (bottom left) are Xeno E03's with different emitters (sst40 5000k, xml 5000k, osram NM1 blue, osram NM1 red, sst20 2700k)

-the GT mini has an sbt90.2 in it, i installed

-all of the convoys have different emitters (of course)

-the sc31 pro has a xpl-hi 4000k, i installed

-the astrolux mf02s is the sbt90.2 version

-the K1's are= CULPM1, XHP35 4000k, sbt90.2

-The astrolux C8 has a Green osram PM1, i installed

-Yes, i only have 1 headlamp (sofirn sp40), but i have about 4 more cheapies kicking around the house.

-The most carried / used = KR4 Ti/Cu, KR4 Black/Ti, d4v2 gray w/ amber switch, FireFlies e07x pro (blue body) w/ sst20 5000k, xeno e03 2700k. Almost All get used though

thats it!

That is a nice collection. The only thing that I can add is that you should have kept most of the ones that you sold. Smile
