Looking to purchase a flashlight? Here's an awesome resource! - Page 7

Buy a Shure E4G, get a Shure flashlight

The Taiwan distributor for Shure is giving away a free flashlight for every E4G purchase. Each E4G is priced at about US$225. A bit high, but I'm tempted.

I'm weak when it comes to free stuff and couldn't resist the E4G free flashlight offer. The flashlight is made of metal and uses two AA batteries. It is the type with multiple bulbs and throws a cool bluish-tint light.

For sure. In 4 months I've bought:
Surefire L4
Surefire E1L
2 x Fenix L1P
StreamLight 3AA LED
Dorcy 1W CR123
Nuwai QIII
Photon Freedom

That's well over $400 USD in flashlights (wow, I guess I didn't even realize I spent that much) But I have no regrets.
I tend to buy mostly the same type of light: bright and small. I have these scattered around the house, work, garage and car. I carry my L4 or E1L with me everywhere I go.

I've had an Arc AAA on my keychain for a couple years now, and just recently I bought a Fenix L2P and couldn't be happier with it. I'm now going to buy a Fenix L1P.

I know Fenix's aren't considered extremely good, but the emergency ability of sticking in any ol' AA battery is a good thing to have.

It's all relative, the Fenix's are considered great value and the perfect blend of performance-quality for the price. Of course, you can spend more and get better flashlights, but they will COST you

I've got both the Fenix and a UDC Ultimate 60 XRGT.
Although the EDC is an awesome flashlight, I am delighted (no pun intended) every time I use a Fenix torch. They're great lights, and about 1/5 the price of the EDC.

You might want to take a look at Nextorch T9 or the Nextorch T6A. A new company. Looks like it does the same or better than surefire, Provides 110 lumens with a runtime of 90 minutes for around $25. Surefire to me is just a name brand or necessary when your life depends on the light.

The Nextorch line looks suspiciously like the pleathora of knock offs abounding in the marketplace these days. I think I'll stick to my Surefires, even though they're a bit more expensive. Looks very compelling for 25 bux though...

The Ultimate Flashlight is nearly here...

I thought I would awaken this thread since something significant is about to happen in the flashlight industry...

A high-intensity flashlight with a two-stage white-light 60 Lumens LED primary beam, plus lower-level colored LED's (blue, red, yellow-green, and infrared) in a compact, water-resistant unit: The Surefire Kroma-MILSPEC



Now you can really hide in a dark room!

Stevesurf turned me on to flashlights at the NYC summer meet and also introduced me to Surefire. I only have the L4 Digital Lumamax at the moment but I intend to get some others as I have found in work I use them quite often, though I sometimes use them when I really don't need them just because they look soooo cool.

Hey Jeff - thx for the plug and that's a nice case Surefire included! FYI, the new Kroma MILSPEC has LEDs with a IR wavelength of 850nm, perfect for seeing in the dark with our cameras!

$300 for Flashlight?!?

I need a new flashlight, but that's just ridiculous.

Surefire's can get much more expensive than that.

Yeah, I wish they would be more specific for a release date. I will definitely be getting one of the Kromas. I noticed recently that you can order them on the Surefire site while I didn't notice them on their earlier. Maybe they will be coming soon.
