    Well, and a McGizmo as well...

    But that's really more of a grail item.
    I had looked at them for over a year before deciding to get one. I absolutely love it and now have two (one edc and one end table/night stand).

    I had tried a couple magnetic ring lights, which is what finally made me decide to try the HDS and I can really tell the quality difference. They are well made, quality lights with a lot of options for setting up. Some people really want the high lumens, which you are not going to get with an HDS (200-325 max depending on emitter).

    I carry an Eagtac d25a ti with a 4.2v lithium battery for direct drive. It fits in the change pocket of my jeans and is insanely bright (500 lumens) especially for its size which is not much larger then a single AA battery.

    In the house I have multiple lights but my bedside light is a Convoy l6. It can light up my entire back yard with 3800 lumens.

    I also keep lights in every car. I have 3 or 4 in my car and my wife's car has 2. In the car lights I use lithium primary batteries (lithium energizer non rechargeable) since lithium ion doesn't handle extreme temperatures very well.

    I like flashlights. Check out candlepowerforums.com if you haven't before.

    This happened at work once and I was the only person that had a light. This was before cellphones had the flashlight function.

    Always. Which one depends on what I'm wearing.

    Left to Right, small to big:

    Streamlight Microstream: 45 lumens
    Streamlight Protac-1L: 275 lumens high, 22 lumens low
    Streamlight Protac-1L-1AA: 350 lumens high, 40 lumens low
    Surefire G2L: originally 80 lumens, now with Malkoff head 300-something lumens?
    Surefire G2X Tactical: 320 lumens
    NEW HOTNESS: Surefire EDCL2-T: 1200 lumens (or 1/10 of the sun's output if you prefer) high, 5 lumens low

    I have other more elaborate and powerful lights..but the light that I have on me every day is this $10 90 lumen, rock solid and reliable little light. It features a tailcap switch...that is all...always on me and used almost every day. The only thing that I dislike is the alkaline battery...I am a CR123 fan...but I love how thin this little light is and it does have pretty good battery life as it is.

    I prefer the 2 AAA flashlight from Harbor Freight. I like the length. In my warm weather vest I have their 588 lumen 4 AAA flashlight too. I like the weight of that one better.

    This one goes everywhere I go. Hardly a day goes by that I don't use it. As my eyes age, I find myself needing it more and more.

    I have three Fenix PD35 Tac flashlights each using two CR123 batteries. One for each car and for home/nightstand. I don't carry it on my person except when I go to the movies or someplace where I know it will be dark. I always take it with me when traveling and staying in hotels, friends, etc.

    The light has a tail cap switch for 1000 lumens, 1000 lumen strobe and 60 lumen "low". The light also has an outdoor mode where you can easily switch between 1000, 500, 200, 60, 8 lumens and 1000 lumen strobe.

    I purchased them directly from the Fenix website. I really like the light!
