Somewhere north of forty. I have slowed down somewhat since I've caught the knifaholic bug.

The goal is to keep it under 100

The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

I think they are about 30 but many of them are "noob" flashlight like the classic "9 led flashlight" (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/9-led-flashlight-20000mcd-1254)...

@Davx: those multi-LED "noob" lights can be pretty decent, too. I always have a couple of those around.

I don't have to buy them, tho; they usually come as freebies. Great for lending to others, as backup lights or some are even nice enough to serve as hosts ("if it doesn't fit, try harder!").

Never bother to count. Have them spread at home, farm, cars.... 30?

I am not counting the 5mm keychain lights. Do have a bag full of those to give to the kids.

I have 15-18 flashlights. But isn't it more important, how much do you use?

I Solarforce L2 is in my car, a Ultrafire C3 in my backpack, which I use some days a week. At home I have a Ultrafire 504B (my EDC). If I need more throw, I use a Romisen RC-T6.

On the way from Hong Kong to me: Solarforce L2p in grey, Trustfire Z1 (will be my small pocket torch)

Light up the darkness.

I think. I can usually find around 130 of them at any given time.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

you feel bad because you lie to your wife ... or feel bad because she can't count ?... or feel bad because she knows you're lying to her .?

Ten.  I won't admit to more than ten.

(I expect everyones answers will shift depending on the answer...)
