The BIG flashlight collection thread - List your flashlight collection here!

The Olights aren’t concidered “Budget” lights, though the others are.

Yeah, I was referring to the XinTD and the stainless AAA from the group buy, but I did get the S80 for under $30 including the diffuser and 26650.

A few more - S6 is triple nichia. :ghost:

Not at all. It doesnt say exclusively budget light forum, there are huge amounts of information and threads on the subject of budget lights, and how to make them eat expensive lights.

…. sure I will be adding to this.

I knew I’d forget one…. My Energizer! (My first “budget light”)

:smiley: I can think of several worse ones, I.E. gun collecting, Car modding, hell, hobby aircraft even. But I love the oxymoronic tittle of this site! At least we are among friends?

I’m glad to be here, and I thought my light collection was getting silly, thanks for reassuring me of my relative sanity everyone!

My list, with photos to come!

Cheap button cell tri-led head pickup magnet
Streamlight Nano keychain light

Streamlight Stylus Pro x2 Nice light for the pocket, easier to lose than a pen!
Misc Pen light from Snap-on (free) falls apart all the time, disaster of a light!

Streamlight Pro-tac 2 - modded with XM-L2

EagleTac T25C2 Modded w/XM-L2 High CRI (don’t like the hue, great for work though) & XP-L Drop-in
Eagletac T20C2 (x2, one new one old body) 5 modded drop ins, XM-L2, XP-G2, XP-L
Eagletac D25LC2 Un-modded XM-L2 light
Eagletac MC34 XM-l2 In the mail, can’t wait for this one!

Nitecore HC-60 Trusty Hardhat light for two years, taken apart for repair but not modded
Zebralight HL-600 Great headlamp, very light, super bright, easy to use.

Need to diversify my brands, but love the Eagletac stuff in hand, and I’ve found out how to take apart the pills to repair/mod them easily. Even found out how to easily make the T25c2 take 16mm sinkpads instead of 14mm.

In the true spirit of BLF, all of my lights cost less than $30

^ Real nice family portrait there. You got some pretty sweet lights. Congrats :)

why is the picture b&w?

Thanks. I appreciate it!

I don’t know. I kind of like black and white, sometimes.

Thanks for the color picture, goes to show how few colored flashlights are sold.

Hmm I’m at around 30+ now, I could probably qualify for posting in this thread.

Yes - you should definitely post :smiley:
