Got in a Nitecore Tiki today.  First impressions are very good.

Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...

I received an olight i5t Eos yesterday. So far so good. I normally like my torches with AAA batteries, but time will tell. Was actually looking the i3t but got too good a deal on the i5t.

I just received a Nitecore LR12.  A much appreciated gift from my daughter, this is a really good flashlight. 

It has four light settings from "just about enough to see in really dark conditions" (58 lumens) and then rising in increments to "wow it's daylight in here" (1000 lumens).  Runs on CR123 batteries and also on 18650 rechargeables. 

It works well as a flashlight, but also has a wind out diffuser to use as a tent light or for power outs etc.

Positives:  Light, fairly compact, and a whopping 1000 lumens if you need it. Wind out diffuser for blackouts etc.  It is the big brother of the Nitecore LA10 which is a superb tent light / electronic candle so has the magnetic base and proven robust build quality of that model.

Downsides: Smooth barrel, so ideally needs the lanyard (supplied).  Base tightening for switch rather than push button, so does need two hands to turn on/off & adjust (I'm happy with this arrangement but I know some folks prefer a traditional on/off switch).  Diffuser not as good as on LA10, but works better as a flashlight.

Overall: I'm very pleased with the build quality and compact nature of this flashlight  :tu:
