CR2 budget light.

I have a couple rechargeable CR2 batteries I picked up for a weapon mounted laser, but I still haven't needed them.

Is there a budget CR2 light that someone could recommend for me.

Thanks

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

Aurora SH-033 Like the SH-034 (But not the SH-035), it is a very nice light.

It's a nice little stainless steel light in the style of the stainless C3. I have it in my work bag. Some comments here

Those SS CR2 lights look great, but considering how huge they are compared to the small CR2 battery (not much smaller than a CR123 light), they don't seem particularly practical. Unfortunately, small CR2 lights generally aren't 'budget'.

You might be able to find a Nitecore EzCR2 - they were being sold around the $30 mark a couple of years ago. They are pretty small.

 

You might find a used Orb Raw - they are tiny and take CR2s. They may well sell for well above budget prices though personally I'd not pay more than $50-60 for a used one. You probably wouldn't want a Luxeon 3 one, they aren't all that bright by today's standards.

 

The WF-606 is pretty tiny when used with a CR2 but the Luxeon ones didn't take a rechargeable, don't know about the Cree ones. It looks very, very odd when used with a CR2 though - a large head with a tiny pimple at the back holding the cell. I'll put up a picture tonight.

The nitecore cr 2 lights are still that much money or more  35 was what I kept seeing ..i turned a few down at 30$ just didn't seem like it was worth it  the cr123 or the ezAA seemed like a much more practical option .

Trustfire Z1 is a very fun light, and practical.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Maybe Romisen RC-C6? Very nice, small with zoom.
