    I bought my self a Fenix TK11 a year or so back and I absolutely love it. Picked up a pack of rechargeable batteries for it. I now have a few Fenix products along with that TK11 which I affectionately call my "adventure light." I carry it everywhere I go. A while back I even used it to smash...

    How many Lumens is enough in a flashlight? Or is it MORE than just Lumens? I've just had run of the mill flashlights, low brightness, not very bright for the most part. I bought a Coast PX20 from Lowe's a few days ago. It's rated at 125 Lumens and was around $25 bucks. It kicks my regular mini...

    There are lots of cheap, small flashlights out there. Looking for recommendations for a reasonably priced quality small lightweight flashlight with relatively long battery life. It will be for my BOB bag emergency use only. Thanks in advance.

    So I'm interested in the Surefire E2D LED I have the FENIX LD20 (two of them) (2 AA) and the LD10 (1 AA) I like the idea of having lights that take an easy to find battery. So would you add another light that will take a different type of battery but would be a better quality flashlight.

    Anyone else into them, or am I the only one here who gets a kick out of 500+ lumen Surefire 6P's and the like?

    After research and shopping for days I have been stuck on these 3 flashlights, I'm not sure which one to get for my bob. Which ever one gets the first ten votes I'll go with. Here they are: 4sevens quark AA tactical r5- 2 aa batteries- $57 Coast model Hp8420- 4 aaa batteries -$49 Fenix E21-...

    I just received my flashlight from China that's supposed to be 250 lumens, which is supposed to be about three times brighter than a full size maglight. Well it's not even as bright as my $2 keychain LED light, and it has a short in it and the light flickers. And I paid $18 to boot. Stay away...

    Been thinking about doing this thread for a while and MIL-DOT got me into the mood with his recent flashlight thread. So, I'm a flashaholic. No it's not what you think. A flashaholic is someone who collects, builds, modifies or simply appreciates a good flashlight. Basically we're portable...

    I am looking for some advice on buying a good reasonably priced LED flashlight. Anyone have any experience with 4sevens or Fenix vs Surefire?

    * Warning this guide is aimed at first time buyers of quality LED lights. Those looking for $5 lights look elsewhere. * Caution to experts. There will be simplification, technical heresy, summarization, cpf blasphemy and general boiling down of information. Not for the faint hearted...

    I have three different Surefire Flash lights all of which unfortunately take very expensive 123 batteries. With three + 50 dollar flash lights I still carry a 15 dollar Gerber Firecracker as part of my EDC. What about you? I feel that it is way to expensive and impractical to carry an...

    I was lucky enough to be able to test a beta model of a new flashlight coming out soon from a flashlight company named Fenix. It is called the TK45 and it is a LED flashlight with a maximum output of an impressive 760 lumens from 8 standard AA size batteries! Some quick specs from the...

    I often think about nice survival and preparedness items that can’t be bought on the market. I guess that some or all of you got some similar thought so why not exchange and hopefully get someone in the business a good idea for what to make. Some of the items that I would like to see: Survival...

    I am new here and I did a search, but didn't have success in finding a thread regarding flashlights. I need to buy three for bug-out-bags, and a few for the bedrooms. The ones I have are plastic and are not very bright even with new batteries, and they are huge and awkward for my child. And I...
