Today I purchased my first "nice" flashlight...

It's a Fenix LD22; 2AA Cree XP-G LED with max output of 190 lumens...

For those who are still running around with lights from WallyWorld...

This is an EDC item you should really consider.

I'll try to post an in-depth review in this thread soon...

All I've got with me right now is some alkaline AA's so I can't comment on all the modes.

I like mine but I have the LD20 so I can use the easily available AA. I have to have a bunch of them on hand anyway.

I used only AA and AAA lights for a few years. Recently picked up my first cr123 light and an 18650 rechargeable and man the difference is night and day. :embarassed: sorry for the bad joke. isnt technology amazing nowadays though?

My EDC light is a Fenix LD10. 1 AA battery, 100 lumens, strobe, SOS mode, low power modes, great size!

I have a light that uses 2 CR123 batteries and it works great but I have to mail order batteries to get a decent price on them and I like the availability of AA batteries.

I have had quite a few CR123 and 18650 lights over the past few years. Cree LED emitters are truly amazing. My EDC though is an ITP A3 eos. Its a Cree XP-E emitter. Runs on 1xAAA, 96 lumens. Low, medium, and high modes (No gimmicky strobe mode)



My favorite headlamp is an 18650 Ultrafire UF-H3



But my favorite light over the past year is the Sipik SK-68 clone lights. They run on 1xAA or 1x14500 (rechargeable lithium-ion). They are incredibly bright with the 14500 cell, and still very bright on an AA. They tailstand, so they work great for lighting up a room during a power outage or just setting down somewhere where you need some light. They are a push-pull zoom light so you can have all flood, or a tight beam that throws a long ways. The best part, they are $6 shipped, so I have like 10 stashed around the house. I like these little things so much, that I sold most of my high-dollar flashlights. These little lights have quite a cult following on flashlight forums.

I love the fact that I can resort back to commonly available AA batteries in case of a power outage or situation where I am not able to recharge the 14500 cell.

FWIWIMHOYMMV
Is this just random mashing of keys or does it mean: for what it's worth in my humble/honest opinion your miles may vary?

Dang, that's a mouthful if you say it aloud. :redface:

Not random...

Just forthcoming that I'm not a full-fledged candlepower zen master...
