Oh ok, I just assumed they were from Boaz because he bought dozens of Nitecore's this year. 

BTW, has anyone seen Don around lately?

Is that a lighter shell on the top shelf? (while the one on the bottom shelf is not strictly a lighter of the same type)

but the one in hawaii is a Perfect beautiful grey, my grey is a two toned mismatched one..

 

Well if i come across one on the other forum, would you want me to put a provisional "ill take it" for you? The shipping from australia would be ridiculous given the nature of Australia post. Shipping torches from the US is like $3-5, from australia with the same 3 week delivery time will cost many times that.

I wouldn't part with mine for double what I paid for it and mine's all scraped and dinged up. Smile It does have a neutral XM-L though.

A new cond. ramping D10 "tribute" just sold for $80. A bargain price, especially since this one had a green trit. They normally go for that price without the trit. Money mouthYell

The two above the Trustfire are no name chinese ebay specials I bought several years ago. Complete crap. The lantern was purchased from Costco 10 or more years ago, nothing special really.The Dewalt 18 volt should be self explanatory. I'm ordering this drop in for it  http://cgi.ebay.com/800-lms-LED-POWER-MODULE-New-Version-DeWALT-6V-18V-/120757416972?pt=US_Flashlights&hash=item1c1db3f40c#ht_865wt_1037

 

I bet those are very reasonable and budget upgrades.

I was looking that showerhead for Mag a while ago but could not find it. I was planning to maybe give one for my brother for christmas.

 

I bought my only XM-L Mag from Lambdalights, sure it throws well but I think I might sell it to a friend. It´s quite big and gets quite little use...

My updated collection thanks in part to the bad influence of the Buy Lights Frequently forum.

Duplicate lights were left out to make me feel a little bit better about my addiction.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

I just ordered the Fusion 36 for my Mag host. It's supposed to be 400 lumens  minimum of flood with a 2 cell host. I'll let you know how it works out

It's not 400lum with 2cells. Your really need 4-6 to make it shine. in a 2d host, get some 3AA->D adapters.

KD does http://kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=2723

Basically the more  voltage you put in, the brighter the module gets.

Here's my story and I'm sticking to it...

Became a flashaholic many years ago, started buying lights and loving it all. Then the economy tanked and the company I worked for went out of business. I spent seven months looking for a job. Finally got a job but it took until recently (more than two years) to catch up on the bills. So my collection is 99.9% lights that are over two years old. A sharp eye will see the Xeno E03 in the pic. I have two other lights on order. So I have a collection that in flashlight years is old. But not so old to be useless. I have some good lights. Four of my lights are at least 500 lumens. And I have a few interesting ones. Notice the NASCAR Mag that has a 3-LED drop-in. The Mag in the middle has an Aspheric lens and LED insert. Hopefully in a few months I can provide a much better collection. But for now this is what I have (I have several more at work and the kids took several of my lights, but this is what I had available to photograph tonight).

I'm having a hard time getting the pic to post here. I thought I knew how to post it but it is not working.

I've got lots of bright ideas.

Thanks Racoon city. How about a pic of the lights that you have? I hope every member contributes a pic, doesn't matter if it is one light or a thousand lights.

I've got lots of bright ideas.

I would also like to add that not ONE of my lights is a shelf queen, they ALL get used.

I'm cool with people having shelf queens that are collector's items, but I don't regard the budget lights that I can afford as collector's items, so I use them all. Scratches are badges of honor. That means you actually used the light. Just my two cents...

I've got lots of bright ideas.

Even the expensive stuff should be used, that's why it's bought. I really don't get these people who buy hundred dollar+ things only to stick them on a shelf/drawer never to be touched. I mean, geez it's not some genuinely rare museum piece, it's a consumer product that they can manufacture ad infinitum if need be.

I agree completely! If you buy a light, use it! And I don't mean shine it at a white wall for a lame "beamshot" pic. Real beamshots are taken outdoors at a target that is at a distance that the light is designed to reach.

Hahah I agree fully! On a side note, kingglamis, I was at my parents place in Scottsdale in June. I am absolutely in love with Phoenix. Must say I am jealous of your place of residence!:)
