Im in.

Yesterday evening. Typical night walk on standard route. Instead of comparing my two latest C8 mods (4,5A Qlite and direct drive East 092) with 20R cells, I put in a Keeppower Protected 18650 in both of them to keep them more similar (and both below 4,5A). 

I also used my new custom MRsDNF light attached to my keychain a little bit..

I’m in too!

The last time I used a flashlight was to light up a totally dark room in Uganda (which was last week). Used a Shiningbeam Caveman and then a Convoy S2.

This morning; getting up and walking down some stairs. It’s still pretty dark here in the mornings around 6AM. Instead of using the house lights, I have been using flashlights to get around in the dark. My light of choice is the Jetbeam RRT-01 variable brightness.

It’s perfect since it starts off in low and I can turn up the brightness to a comfortable level. With only a control ring to twist, it makes for easy operation with one hand. I thought the control ring was a bit loose when I first got the light, but now I think it’s just perfect because of how easy it is to operate.

Thanks ryansoh3 and Banggood for sponsoring such awesome contests/giveaways as of late.

I was using my Convoy S8 to repair a tub for squeaking. I cut out the drywall and used the S8 to see where the problem was and added shims on the top of the tub supported by the horizontal 2×4.

Ohh, please count me in to this great giveaway.

I actually used ALL my lights today to test out my new luxmeter! Silly

Thanks for doing this giveaway, I’ve always been intrigued by the L3 but not enough to actually shell out the money for one.
Fingers crossed!

Tucking in my 2 yr old girl. We played with the flashlight on the way up the stairs to her room the whole way. Then after a kiss good night she tells me..“My light Dada, My light” I tell her no Dada’s light…..I get “ohhhhh….okayyy, my light dada!”

She does have her own light

playing with flashlights with the kids is actually how she discovered her shadow. That was so cute and so much fun

Last time I used a light was a convoy (don’t remember the number, a cylindrical one) five minutes ago, trying to find my baby’s pacifier under the sofa; there were three of them there, good catch
