What's the Best Light with a Side Light?

Looking for a flashlight with a side light. 18650 or bigger, Neutral LEDs. Probably not the NexTool with the siren that reduces the complexity of the night (their words).

Anyone have a link to reviews and info?

Thanks Beer

Highly recommend the EagTac DX30LC2-SR, it is a very well made, reliable light.

It does have proprietary charging port, but if you don’t use that than you can just drop 18650s in there.

That looks really good, except for the CW LEDs. I edited my post to narrow it down. But that is a nice light.

The throw is CW, the sidelight flood is a Nichia 219B warm.

When I win the lottery I’ll pick one up. “Strong magnetic tail” I’d like to see that – it would have to be.

Haha yea no kidding! That gives me a weird idea. What if someone built a light with an electromagnet? You could toggle it on/off. Probably not a good idea but an interesting thought.
