My kind of giveaway! That Bag-O’-Lights™ is a big Bag-O’-Want for me!
But I can’t post a picture of my life-time least-loved light as it was trashed promptly on receipt:
It’s still this light:
…as mentioned in the thread mentioned in the OP.
The only current contender I have for this role is this light:

…but ultimately, disappointing. Large for its size, this single AA light is almost the size and weight of an S2+. Although I originally though it might have some modding/host potential, the odd switch arrangement died very quickly and I’ve done nothing further with the light!
I literally hate the Thrunite 2C V2. It was the first time I spent “more” money on a flashlight and…. it was DOA. tried several batteries, both 2x 18350 and 1x18650. Didn’t help, the driver was apparently never working in this light. A shame because the Thrunite was the smallest 18650 light I have ever seen IRL.
I then went back to my Solarforce lights, they never failed so far and I have built the drop-ins myself.
Congratulations on your 6K posts - please count me in on the giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.
one of the first TF lights i bought, i modded it then the driver blew. then the switch broke. and the fine-threaded zoom i really hate. for a zoomie the beam pattern is to narrow on full flood, then the throw is mediocre. i just never liked this one and its threaded zoom design.
Congrats on the milestone and thanks for the opportunity to win your BoN-LL.
This Nitecore is, by far, my worst and least loved light. From the ridiculously complicated UI, to the well documented switch issues, to Nitecore’s horrible customer service, it is the one light I wish I’d never wasted money on. It’s so bad that it stopped me from ever buying another Nitecore product and I gleefully speak ill of Nitecore at every opportunity.
