HID only useful for showing off. takes too long to achieve full brightness. eats power like a mofo. also too damn bright to use, no dimming ability.

I had one. useless.

Okay I bit the bullet and bought a 4Sevens Quark AA-2 R5. I know it isn't the "X" model but it's good enough. The X model would be nice at 280 but it's like $15 more. Don't feel like spending the extra at the moment.

Anyway, slight off-topic. Warriors and wonders will be closing their retail store front in about 2 months. They will still continue to operate through their webstore and will have a Pickup option/office when they close their retail store. Something about the market being too competitive and they are just exhausted. Had a decent time dealing with them today with my purchase.

Found something extremely retarded lol.

Bringing up an old thread, but

warriorsandwonders is having a clearance on their surefire flashlights, picked up a g2x for good price (since they are already so damn expensive lol)

Going Gear - Going Gear - Smyrna, Georgia is US based, but type in sootch00 for 10% discount
la police gear also has brand named flashlights for sale, type in Tac1 for 10% off.

After reading this thread last year, I unfortunately became a flashaholic

Nice price! Just an FYI though, that's the older model. The newer G2X's are 320/15 lumens. I just picked up one of the newer models of the G2X for $70 on eBay not too long ago.

But as mentioned, DS Tactical also carries the batteries. Buying a box is definitely the economical way to go. A pack of 2 CR123 at London Drugs is $18-$22 where as a box of 12 from 911supply or similar is around $32-$35.

CR123 is originally designed to be a lithium battery.. of course rechargeable NiMH will never get to the same preformance.

Costco has a $15 3-pack of 200 lumen led flash lights complete with batteries. The quality is not bad. Some of my older 150 lumen lights from costco died after being rough with them in construction work. I should have kept the packaging and receipts. Good for the money though.

+1 for costcos 3 pack flashlights. If you ain't picky about quality, fit and finish, give them a try. But once you purchase your first pricey flashlight, you can easily tell the differences. Gotta pay to play lol.

Cr123s are relatively expensive locally. A pack of 12 surefire cr123s go for $29.99. Preferably, I'd go with deal extremes cr123s, and/or 18650 batteries which you can rarely find.

Mackoutdoors is also another local dealer in Abby that sells decent flashies as well.

Same here. I use it at work all the time as a hammer too. I really want to get a surefire hellfire with 2300 lumens but I dont have the 2g to get one.
And for the cree lights, they are bright but they are built like shit. Had 2 of them bought off amazon for cheap. Both of them were rechareable and pretty bright, but they both broke after a few weeks of use.

I've been using my Streamlight jr led for work for years. Super durable and pretty heavy duty. I bought it from a snap on truck on sale for $50 so half off. Also the snap on guy said its lifetime warranty. Its never broke on me the last 3 years. I take it everywhere I go, seriously. Lol

It's about the length of an average pen and probably 3/4 of inch thick.

^ was looking at that as well but I prefer the buttons being placed at the end of the tube.

It's probably a matter of time before these manufacturers use the U3 bulbs (even brighter at the same current).

XT11-
600 lumens

Also ordered a Nitecore MT26 with max 800 lumens.
