Xwhatever for streamlight products. have one for work and one at home, both stinger HL models. my light at work has gone to hell and back (run over, left in a water tank, left on an exhaust manifold on a test drive, dropped a million times) and it still works. its lifetime warranty too

Amy has a habit of taking my flashlights. Then she forgets where she put them. I keep buying her cheaper flashlights because I know they will disappear. Protects my pricier lights. Somewhere in my house there are half a dozen flashlights lying around out of sight.

My most used light is probably the skilhunt H03 right angle headlamp. I use them so much I have 2. Magnetic tail, 18650, easy UI, ip68, nice and floody for up close work.

And looks like they have a rechargable model now.

Do it, you won't regret it. I think gearbest or AliExpress has them for good prices and on sale often.

Got poking around r/flashlight today and decided I needed a new light. Ordered a Noctigon KR4 with SST20 4000K 95+ CRI LED’s. My D4V2’s both have XPL HI 5000K LED’s so it will be interesting to see the difference.

once we find this guy a flashlight is also like some suggestions if someone has experience with 90* flashlights. Looking for something for night time walking.
Holy shit.... I have ALWAYS wondered why military lights were 90 degrees....

I think the SST20 4000 max is 3000lm versus the the XPL HI 5000k at 4300lm. I don’t use it at full blast often so I doubt I’ll miss the last 1300 lumens that it can only really support for 90 seconds or so anyways.
