High output flashlights

Postby CatFuzz » Thu Oct 15, 2015 1:05 am

Anyone else into high lumen LED flashlights? I have three different Nitecore flashlights. There's nothing like being able to really light something up.

These are the three lights in my collection

I carry this one on my belt. EC25 Cobra http://www.amazon.com/NiteCore-Cobra-Ul ... 5+nitecore

I keep and SRT 7 handy in my toolbox. http://www.amazon.com/NiteCore-Revenger ... 7+nitecore

And I keep a P36 handy in my truck. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00R3J ... detailpage


I never thought I'd pay a hundred bucks for a flashlight but these are totally worth the cost.

Oh man... a good flashlight is pretty darn handy. One of these days...

That's one of those things I can't buy because I know it will just get ganked. kids... can't live with them, can't suffocate them with a trash bag and freeze the body then throw it in a wood chipper aimed over the lake....

Just added this one to the collection. It's just as powerful as the P36 but it's smaller and lighter and the controls are on the side, which is where I prefer them to be. The P36 will probably live in my truck and the EC4S will likely be a semi EDC (Every Day Carry) at least when I'm working.

I hate how companies use the word "turbo" in their advertising (turbo washer, turbo phone, etc., etc.) :roll: A turbo is used on a vehicle. (rant off) :lol:

If I had the time to build one, this would be it...
