in process of buying these:
Nitecore TM 15
Thrunite TN 31

I’ve begun with the TN 31… if needs be then, the Tiny Monster.

Also a charger… Jetbeam I think… Nitecore, Jetbeam, same same.

No matter our greatest works or achievements, in the grand scheme of things, we’re only a Drop In A Bucket, when all is said and done.

Some of what goes into Varapower Lights, Copper works wonders

This is a comparison of this light (camo VPT3 SBT90 MB VS a top binned and dedommed , old P bin (now called N bin) VP2000 both direct Cu mount

The light on the Left is the VP2000 and still is around 1800 Lumens OTF— Oh my what a difference a few bins and reflector will due. Both are 6500k, but dedoming lowers the appearant Kelvin temperature

Mag LED VPT2 XP-G2 OSTS modded TN31 and VPT2 XM-L

The modded TN31 was sold because the VPT2 XP-G2 modified with DEFT Lens and CF bezel like picture below was much much better thrower. I am one the few not a big fan of the body of the TN31. I think it’s way too big in the hand because of the battery carrier and switching mechanism (LegionII style carrier-less, for example, and the teflon bushings and light spring return switch are significantly more ergonomic)

VPT SST90 5700K Prototype with OMG Lumens DEFT Carbon Fiber bezel and Aspheric

I would not recommend the Aspheric VPT in SST90, SBT90, or XM-L, only in XP-G2. Because the others are too large of a die. I know the SBT90 version has been tested to be over 360K lux, but the XP-G2 version is so much better that it’s not even funny. The VPT2 XP-G2 with _reflector _ alone throws about the same as an unmodified DEFT.

There are 2 of these DEFTs, they look the same, the one has an a R2, this one with the 5A. The other has been upgraded by OMG to XPE2 LR

OMG Deft X-RE and upgraded OMG Deft X-PE2 DeDomed LR


**Fire Foxes FF3,FF4— 4,000 and 7,000 Lumens of Incan like light in a light that is easily the brightest for it’s size. 225K and 428K Lux

Lamdalights Keylight Locator, still running well remaining on only a few Months(runtime with some of my other units has been well over a yr)! with dedomed SST90 4500K VPT3

Pink polyethylene Eveready 2D, from the 1980s or earlier, with krypton bulb from the 1990s, recently sorted as my worst flashlight, heavily scarred, looks corroded but works with no recent attention

Tekna Monolith, waterproof and zoom, 1x Li 123, the plastic window or “lens” extends down inside the head so the whole light is sealed by a single sliding O-ring, krypton bulb, in day pack (My other two backpacking flashlights were a similar Tekna Microlith not zoom and with a longer lithium cell replaceable by two N cells, and a 69 cent 1x AA light. I also carried a stub of a candle and built a fire when allowed.)

Mag Light 2x AA, in the tool box of an old non-running sports car

Orange 2D cell Eveready with halogen bulb upgrade, from when my son rode home in the dark and forgot to bring flashlights back, very sharp focus

My wife’s Mag Instrument Solitaire 1x AAA, focuses, left behind by some Stanford student

RayOVac focusable plastic 2D from Goodwill, krypton incandescent as acquired, sedan trunk

Solid copper screw head focus, 2D, “RAY-O-VAC CASE NO. CS22 BATTERY 2 NO. 2 UNITS LAMP NO. 1. PAT. DEC 3, 1929 MADE IN U. S. A.” on a plate above the switch, “SOLID COPPER” on the body, “MADE IN U. S. A.” and “T. NO. 1,774,722” on the switch, E10 krypton bulb now (not sure what the older one is but certainly not original), not quite as bright as expected, $10 on EBay, worked after cleaning and working the switch


Small led, button cells

Pen with white led and red laser

Red laser

4x Inova micro lights: red from Fry’s, white from OSH given away, red from Inova lost by kids, a third red, 2× 3V 2016 Li, they survive spit and hand sanitizer even though they have no O rings. 3 mode

Shake light with large clear case, to illustrate that a changing magnetic field causes an electric field. Does not work well.

Crank light that doesn’t work well, white led, from Goodwill

5-3+10 changing color rgb keychain lights, non-waterproof switch, cheap source of 2016 Li button cells, 2× 3V 2016 Li, from KD

1-1+1 UV keychain lights, from KD

White, black key chain light, maybe from locksmith

Eight Titanium Innovations button lights from Battery Junction, 2 UV, 2 red, 2 white, one green, one blue, all very nice.

Silver and purple rectangular light in travel briefcase

Keychain mini-Leatherman-like tool, takes all of one side, similar to key chain light

Red led on a cigarette lighter, acquired accidentally

Joke red and green led wedding ring with big plastic purple jewel

Most of the button cell lights are about as bright as the 2D incandescents.


Small led, flashlight batteries

4D lantern style with led conversion, narrow throw, dark body with glow in the dark paint added in depressions, will be good for long power outages

Plastic light from REI with 2× 1.5 V Li AA cells and (unnecessary) large head, hybrid trunk

Inova multi-led light stolen from sedan glove compartment, Li non-rechargable

Small very cheap multi-led light, silver color Al, 3x AAA

Small very cheap multi-led light, red color Al, 3x AAA

Nebo A10G combination light, 1 white (unknown type) intermediate output, 5 green, 5 UV, 1 red laser, beautiful exterior, 3x AAA

Big head multi-led light, yellow, rubber on body, 3 xAAA

Wife’s pink 1x AAA from OSH hardware

1 x AAA (acid) stainless steel Ray O Vac, with o-rings, 1 led with lens and reflector but fixed focus flood beam with spill, larger than Mag Light Solitaire, as bright as button lights, forget where I got it.

2 pack of old type plastic Eveready 2D lights converted to 1D led for $3.60, including batteries— super budget flashlights (labeled as marked down from about twice that price). These are almost identical to the orange incandescent listed above. Similar to the silver multi-led light in output and probably vanishing wholesale price, but narrow throwy beam and much longer run time and lower operating cost by about the ratio of sizes of AAA to D cells.
I got them with the intention of converting one to a liquid cooled 2D XM-L light.
I suppose the conversion from 2D to 1D was to save the cost of a second dry cell. Perhaps one of you in a less wealthy part of the world can tell us if these are common there. It is a little surprising to find something so economical in the Silicon Valley.


XP-E and such

Nebo Red Line AT10J from brother, 3x AAA metal ring XR-E led, nice Flash Gordon exterior, showing off skill with NC tooling, shiny finish, my first high output flashlight (ignoring the Nebo that was lost right away)

Sipik SK68 type, XR-E or XP-E, AA/14500, shape copied from Nitecore Extreme:
1 Mode Sipik, bright silver, XR-E
3 Mode UltraFire with next mode memory and longer lens motion, wider flood, Q5, clip removed, in hybrid glove box
3 Mode UltraFire, starts on high, Q5, sedan glove compartment
Sipik, black, 1 mode, gave to my son
No-brand silver, 1 mode, rougher shape, gave to a friend
Green Sipik, Q3, for giving away when camping
2 x Black Sipiks, Q3, for giving away when camping
Silver Sipik, Q3, for giving away when camping
Red XR-E “Q5”, 3 mode, a few minutes of next mode memory but eventually goes to high, very large lens but no better throw or flood, small flood, ring around spot
Blue XR-E “Q5”, 3mode, no memory, very large lens but no better throw or flood, small flood, ring around spot
Black XP-E Q5, 3mode, From Ali Express (Michael Blue), large lens, good knurling, O ring slide, no mode memory, best AA light
Most of these have been given away now.

Smiling Shark SS-8027 AA/14500, moving led (so better not 14500) but good fins on ring, XR-E “Q5”, square knurling, similar brightness and current as SK-68, my most unusual led light
Sipik SK58, Ozram Golden Dragon led, AA only, nice square knurling, grey, less bright than and draws more current than an SK-68, small throw spot as bright as a 68- given away

Sipik SK58, Q5, from, 3 mode, zoom is stiff

Big no brand movable led light, green ring, externally very nice but poor heat transfer and big for a XP-E Q5, 3xAA/18650, best throw before the big 18650 but small flood, wife has it. From DHgate, advertized and priced as T6.

My wife’s Maratac solid copper, 1x CR123, Cree XP-G, 1.8, 50, 260 lumen, starts on low


XM-L T6?, 14500

TrustFire Z8, stainless steel and black anodized Al, trapezoidal threads everywhere, from Tmart. With the cheap Li ion cells I have, these are about the same brightness as SK68s with the same cells.

Second TrustFire Z8, from Appears identical but a bit cheaper and took longer to arrive.


XM-L T6, 18650

Sipik 73, warm silvery 5 mode, no memory, very compact. Best medium sized light. Does not fit protected Li cells.

Sipik 73 clone, no markings, not more fins but deeper, next mode memory, black Given away

UltraFire (not mentioned in description), longer, bronze color with shiny Al crenelated bezel and tail, 5 mode. From Meritline. This one disproves the idea that UltraFire pays attention to what their name goes on. It works as a cheap LM-L should, but the pill will cross thread when unscrewed just a turn or two. It is worse than any no-brand that I have. The pill is in my Eveready 3D XM-L.

No brand, longer, wider, silver or gold colored, best throw and best flood, head wobbles, 8 square fins on head, so big and heavy that the limited heat conduction to the fins on the head doesn’t matter much. The pill is very long, most of what makes the light so long. It screws into the body and the head slides on it, but the screw and slide sections are short. From Meritline. Best light for home, lost, don’t know where.

Raysoon RS-TD398, Sipik 98 clone, 3 mode, scaled up Sipik 68, black, next mode memory, spring and o-ring in slide. Smaller than the no brand and better cooling and wider flood than the 73s. Very nice knurling and finish.

UltraFire Sipik 98 clone, 5 mode, no memory, brown, slightly larger lens, slightly smaller throw but slightly smaller flood, a little brighter, knurling shallow. Given to daughter.


= maybe 60

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

My collection in my display case. (Around the house and in my pockets are several more lights spreaded)
Not as nice as some of you, and as of now most of them are cheap, but since the last couple of months I’m more focused on better quality and brands.

Picture is not so great as I just took a quick snap shot with my cellphone.

Instead of buying better ones, you could fix what you don’t like in the ones you have. That would be more fun for less money.

Flashlight designers should look at lighthouses and pottery.

It’s not really a matter of not liking them, it’s a matter of getting some lights that will power on when needed (and just another reason to keep buying :P)

And modding is a whole next level. The goldenbrown one second from the right on the top was disassembled and reassembled by me, now the tailcap isn’t working anymore, and I’m almost positive I put everything back in as I took it out. Light turns on as soon as I twist the tailcap on and won’t turn off anymore until I twist it back Silly
Ah well, at least it’s one that I already didn’t use that often anymore.

I only have Fenix E05 and Olight S10 L2 in my collection. I also acquired a couple of Energizer Lithium (AAA) and Nitecore RCR123A with Nitecore I2. Just Ordered a Convoy C8 and a couple of Sanyo UR18650FM. I don’t looking to add more lights now maybe after a few months.

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

That’s DETOLF, from IKEAland. Only $65. My downlight is a Malkoff M60LF in an UltraFire host, hard-wired to a lamp circuit via 9V transformer.

Something I noticed is that many newer collectors don’t seem to own SureFire lights, they must have lost some appeal in the past few years.

I have that same Detolf Ikea cabinet for some of my lights. ( i need a second one though as this one is full.
