Hello from the sink of Europe

Yep, that’s really the nickname of where I live, big delta where big rivers meet the sea. So I like my flashlights and use them a lot, I live in a small village and like the outdoors so find enough darkness I need to chase away. I’ve already started something of a collection so here’s a picture as of now:

Hello and welcome!
Cool collection already. I think you would “need” some multi-emitter light next. Thumbs Up

Hello Kwispelhond, welcome to BLF. Enjoy your stay here.

By the looks of it, you are already beyond salvation.
So maybe it is time to move on to the next level?
That would be either multi-emitter or multi-cell lights.

BTW, is the dog wagging the tail or is the tail wagging the dog.
(for non-Dutchees: remark about the username)
I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. Just sniffing.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

It’s an old nickname I’ve been given long time ago, it kind of “stuck” so I’ve been using it for internet for some time now.

So, I need something to give us a full moon everyday? I kind of like my lights a little smaller or at least easily portable so probably rather multi-emitter than multi-cell I guess tho I was thinking about one of those 4x AA coke-can lights…….., ah time will tell, It’s not like I’m sitting in the dark!

Welcome to great BLF forum!
For coke can lights my favourite is Sofirn SP36, you can see some it is variants. It is best for bucks.

Welcome to BLF Kwispelhond! Nice flashlights and congrats on figuring out how to include a picture on your first post.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I’ve been eyeing some of those multi-emitter lights but nothing decided still.

These SP36’s are pretty useless en goofy at almost half a kilo so perfect for geek-play, wonder if I’ll don’t need the brightest of the series so the “Pro” version, I’ve never even seen something as bright as 8.000lm even if it’s only for a minute or so. fortunately they make one in 5000K too as I can’t imagine I’ll ever going to like looking at 8.000lm in CW. Must admit that the least powerful version, the BLF with the hi-cri Samsung’s seems like much nicer light to look at thou.

And then the grown-up part in me tells the child in me to just buy the Lumintop FW3A or FW4A because these ones are actually portable……. Ahhhh decisions, decisions……. Facepalm

So, the man in the White Van raced by again today: again very fast all the way from China in 10 days!

Jep, an older BLF light, The Kronos X5 with XP-L Hi 5300K 3b led. I was looking for something well pocketable with some more throw and came by this flash from the past for only 20,56 euro, it’s the last ones going out on sale. Really happy with it so far, seems good quality and looks like it will do perfect for camping with low moonlight, good throw but still usable spill. At the moment I have no better 14500’s than my Eagletac’s at max 3A but I’m waiting on delivery of some H10’s from Vapcell, well over a month already, they took the slow boat but these will make this light SHINE!!

Yes, that is good light. Thumbs Up Only reason that I don’t have that is my Lumintop GT Micro.

Is the clip reversible on your Ti3 V2 shown in the OP? That looks like a good size for a hands-free headlamp on the brim of a cap.

Now i used to think that i was cool,
drivin' around on fossil fuel,
until i saw what i was doin',
was drivin' down the road to ruin. --JT

Yes, the clip is reversible and is pretty good and strong so that will probably work pretty good.
