Nice! Big Smile

No big lights? Lumen monsters and mile plus throwers? Cool

To admit is to acknowledge.To Accept is to take action.

Afraid not, Bort is a very budget BLF member.
Several of those lights were won on giveaways, and i sold some lights recently. The Wurkkos on the far right is my newest light, the Convoy M3C before that. Before that the last purchase was probably 2018ish.

The M3C is a somewhat lumen monster, 4000 lumens iirc.

Yup, the SA-22 has stripped threads from lots of use so its an emergency light only with 4 charged Eneloops.

The C88 sits in a box, it was upgraded and tested by an old BLF member becasue it arrived defective. But the small removable pill has huge lumen sag. The threads are silky smooth though, i never found out what they are lubricated with, i wish i could buy a bottle of whatever it is.

Indeed Innocent

I would like to upgrade some of my lights, but then i would want to sell the old ones off. I’m still sporting a fair number of XM-L lights.

I am surprised nobody asked about the second photo.

Its a 75W cigarette lighter inverter or Renogy Phoenix 100 as power sources. The power bank outputs USB and 120VAC and has 4500mAh x 6 21700s batteries built into it.

The bulb is a Sylvania partial spotlight 8W LED. An older one with metal base and some heft to it. And the cord is a 15.5 foot Ikea cord.

It lives in the trunk and would be good for working on the car at night, tire changes or even camping.

The new Sofirn Q8 Pro might be something for you.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

Looks nice, also the Astrolux FT02S is a contender for monster lumens!
Right now i have about $50 to spend from my light sale and am thinking of buying two Convoys (M21B and S21A).
Probably wait till Black Friday and get them on sale.
