Fenix E01 and E05 :tu: E11 will be next.
It seemed like a good idea at the time.

The solarforce LT2 looks good.

I just had some LEDs and other bits sent over from the states to build a mega maglite. I just need to find the time to make it.

Picked up a Serac S3 for $24.99 on Amazon, seems to be the going price for them now, beats the pants of $60-70+ for them a few months ago. Definitely not worth more than $50 to me, but a pretty good light for $25.

Hard to beat the AAA Maratac that put out 80 lumens on a single AAA cell. Before the Serac I picked up 2 of these. Love them.

My latest. When it is released, I will probably get the XT11 as well.

Just ordered a 1000 lumen single mode drop in for my flashlight. Also getting 1 or 2 more 3p bodies and soon the parts to build some more.
If I remember correctly, wait, what was I saying?

Waiting on a new 1xAAA keychain light to show to replace my Mr Lite KC-05 (nothing wrong with it, it's served me well for a year).  Should be very, very interesting piece based on the specs and what I know what in to it's design.

Not Ti... just the regular one (hence being a T6 :D)

Nothing extraordinary to report, expect that I REALLY like it!

Lovely smooth beam, easy to use and really bright. Didn't like the clip much myself, so it's on a P7 clip which suits my pockets better, Size wise it's a tad longer and wider than an IncenDio, but worth the extra bulk for the great variable control.

Can't find fault with it at the moment!

The variable control is just fantastic on the sunwayman isn't it. Odd thing is now I find myself using the really low more than high.

I'll be keeping an eye on Sunwayman next year.

I've been a fool and just bought a Jetbeam TC R3 titanium as well as a Klarus MiX6 titanium from Heinne Haynes. I'll post some pictures when i get them. Supposedly getting a Maratac stainless AAA and Titaner titanium AAA for christmas but you never know.

Be fun to see how these stand up to my really cheap MXDL AAA and Ultrafire WF-501B 2xCR123, the latter being the brightest torch i own by far at the moment.
Pictures of most of my work can be found on my Facebook Page.
Also have a look at my Shapeways Shop and SW Torch Shop for 3D printed items.

You have too many torches when big men come round and take them away again.

Likely a Tank007 E07.  A groovy and cheap AA light, that can be simply modded like this:

Used my amazon GC from my MTO secret santa to pick up one of these:



TerraLUX TLF-3002AA-BK LightStar300 3-Watt LED Aluminum Flashlight,Titanium Grey.

2xAA batteries.  Dual mode 300/100 lumen output - ok, probably not quite 300 lumens but it is brighter than my previous bright light, which is rated at 200 lumens.  3 hour runtime at high and 24 hour runtime at low.

Great light, I'm really enjoying it.

Streamlight Microstream, just got it today! Very nice light. 28 lumens is perfect I think for a single output level. The dual-action pocket clip is way cool, and it comes with a cool neck lanyard.

One thing I found odd, was it was sealed it the clamshell package, with an Energizer AAA alkaline inside the light...seems odd that they would do that instead of offering the battery on the side like Maglite does. No leakage so everything was ship-shape. Great little light!
