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.

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).
