I just ordered: *Special Edition Q5* Fenix Digital P1D CE NATURAL Finish. It sells for $61.00, but if you use discount code cpf8 you'll get 8% off =)

All I've got is a Rexlight with a single Cree P4 XR-E LED. That's not to say that it isn't insanely bright, though

I can't justify buying another flashlight-this one does it all and uses a single AA

You can't buy them from kaidomain anymore, but this is it: http://kaidomain.com/WEBUI/ProductDe...px?TranID=1359

My collection is slowly growing. I have been a member of Candle Power Forums for a few years. Right now I mainly carry:

-Surefire G2 (with Lumen Factory HO-9 lamp)
-Surefire E1L (modded with Seoul LED, two stage tailcap, and beam diffuser)
-Surefire L4 (on E1L body with rechargable cell)
-Mag 2C (Philips halogen bulb, 3 stage driver, glass lens, aluminum reflector, rechargable C sized li-ion cells, stainless steel tailcap)

My favourite of all is my Modamag Drake. I wear it on a necklace and it comes in handy all the time. Cree LED, 10 brightness levels, green tritium locator, smaller than an AAA battery.

If you don't need a ton of brightness, the ARC flashlight is well regarded as one of the most durable keychain flashlights: Arc Flashlight: Testimonials From Owners of Arc Flashlights

If you can easily afford the RAW, I'd say go for it for the bling and wow factor . Be wary you will need to start buying those special CR2 batteries for it.

A few weeks ago I got some 1xAA P4CREE Flashlights from DealExtreme, SKU 1993 & 5346. Awesome lil lights, very bright for only single AA battery, even with NiMH's! Highly recommend you get one.

The Ultrafire C3 you mention is a great little light. If you are ever looking for a little bigger brighter torch try this one. I've been very happy with all the lights I have bought from DealExtreme as well. For their prices, some of there cree and rebel lights as bright as the comparable Fenix's with just a little shorter on the run time.

It always amazes me how so many of these forums share the same members Techno-collector hobbyists of the world unite.

Hmm .. iNova X5, I haven't read much about that. FWIW - I LOVE my DX SKU 5346!! perfect single AA light ever! I am curious about Fenix's 1xAA's ... but these 5346's are awesome!

Also I love my Lowes Task Force 2C 3W CREE torch! it beats my 4D MAGLITE TerraLUX TLE-6EX upgrade hands down!

Mag-Lite Mag Charger. Awesome flashlight, and rechargeable.

Just installed Diamond L.E.D. 3 watt modules in the 3 D-cell MagLites I keep in the car and beside the bed. Very nice improvement. Also picked up a Fenix L2T for the pocket of whatever dogwalking coat is in "current rotation". Nifty little light! My ARC AAA Premium remains my constant companion.

I have an X5 from years ago...it's built pretty sturdy and still looks new. The X5 is a light built for close-range flood. 5 low output LEDs clumped together. Battery life is very long though.

Make sure you buy those CR123 batteries online to save $$$ (BatteryJunction, etc.).

Hey, this was cool. I owe you a beer! Even though this coupon code is almost a year old, it saved me $5.64 on my order that would have been $70.50 without the coupon code, so yup, it was 8% exactly!

I ordered the following:

1 x COMBO: Fenix Digital L1D Black Textured and E01 (L1DB.E01) = $55.50
1 x Fenix 360 Bike Mount (fbike) = $15.00

The bike mount will come in handy because it allows you to pivot the flashlight in any direction; 360 degrees, plus up and down.

They have some nice specials now where if you buy an L1D, L2D, P1D, P2D or P3D, you get an E01 as well. The E01 is not free, but discounted.

https://www.fenix-store.com/index.php?cPath=22_52

For example, the L1D that I bought is on sale separately for $49.20 whereas the combo was $55.50. So the E01 ($15 retail) was only $5.70 extra, but then with my 8% discount, I basically got it for 6 cents!
