When....

When your wife picks up an unfamiliar flashlight and says, “Wow, now this one’s cool!” instead of, “Where did this come from?” Big Smile

Then she kidnaps it and I only get to see it when the battery needs charged. Sad

When....

When an eel bites your leg, and the pain makes you beg, that's a Moray.

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

Time to admit that you're in a relationship with an Asian girl called Mae Ling.

You met her on Ali-Express ..After sending her money ..She refuses to answer your emails .

Thats good, it means she is seeing the utility of the hobby.
Of course when she complains about it again tell her she bought into it already. She is now a willing participant LOL

But buy another because your not getting that one back.

Opposite happened with BLF GT.

We’re out in the boat looking for a campsite in the middle of the night and she’s in the bow. Instead of my usual aspheric lights I’d brought the GT. After about 5 minutes trying to hold that monster up high enough to gets the spill off the boat and she was ready to throw me in the water. Worse, it was foggy so it was also barely useful.

Now headlamps….she loves to steal my headlamps.

That’s exactly what happened with my ZebraLight SC62w. Of all the flashlights I had my wife try, this is the only one she liked. She likes the side switch, the small size, and how bright it is. I like that it has temperature regulation and low voltage cutoff so I don’t have to worry about it.

I only see it when it no longer keeps the high brightness and automatically shuts down to low. It then appears at my spot in the kitchen, which I then recharge the battery and give it back to her. With the last recharge, I found that the older 18650 battery still has most of its capacity.

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

Yup, mine stole my S2 219b sw-45k triple with a lighted tailcap, Solarforce L2M shorty with 219b sw-40 and Haikelite 26650 XP-L hi since it was blue. When they start flashing, she comes running tor a recharge. She is trying to kidnap my Unicorn at the moment. Granted, she has only taken 4 or 5 but she uses and abuses them. You know, heavy finish wear, sometimes get dropped and generally used hard.

I have not placed my FW series or D4V2’s in her hands, do not want them to disappear. She is a TBI survivor and really likes simple tail switch lights with lighted tail switches, they take very little thought for her to operate.
