    Best pricing I have found outside of mass purchase straight from Surefire, is Lowes you can buy a 2 pack for 5 and some change. They to me are worth the extra fantastic little batteries.

    C2 LED Centurion Surefire(pricey for me but worth it, if your gonna spend money on it and rely on it might as well buy quality) thats my 2cents
    Surefire makes good stuff but I could never spend $100 or more for a flashlight. I only need one for general use and since mine just sits on the nightstand most of the time, I'll take my chances on an import.

    Did you get a good pair of welding goggles to go with it? I'll bet that Olight throws an awesome beam. Congratulations.

    The only thing I'd be worried about is the fact that 450 (if the advertising is accurate) lumens is way, way, way too bright for "tactical" use inside your home. 450 lumens is more than enough to blind you with light reflected off walls.

    I would completely disagree with this statement I have LumaPower's D-Mini VX ULTRA (550 Lumens), a Jetbeam M1X MC-E (450 OTF Lumens), and a Dereelight DBS V3 Cree MC-E (500 Lumens).

    None of these lights will "blind" you with light reflected off the walls.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

    Nice light, I've thought about getting one myself.
