I was just about to post a thread titled something like "Ode to the Streamlight Polytac LED" but I'll post here instead.

This light is a "tactical sized" LED flashlight that uses two Lithium 3 volt cells to deliver 120 lumens. How bright is 130 lumens? If you shut off the lights and shine it at yourself through a mirror, you won't do it again.....

They are about $40 and when you consider that replacement batteries (CR123A) are $15 or so, that's pretty inexpensive. Run time is about 3 hours so this is for when you really need a bright light, not for taking a walk with the dog.

I got the "Where is the damned flashlight" yellow, but it is also available in Mall Ninja black. Widely available.

Pelican 8060 LED. Its a bit long, but at 190 lumens and a rechargeable battery in it, and the fact that the maintenance unit I work in hasn't managed to break one, even after running it over with a truck and dropping it off an airplane, it's pretty much perfect.

Sweet... My non-Ti Mini123 is my favorite...

My only suggestion to 4Sevens: they should have a holder for your mouth for when you need both hands to work on something...that knurling is tough on your teeth... that..and the drooling...

Did you see the next generation Mini123 they are just comming out with??

More power (new emitters)...same body!

Well hell, first the G11 Canon and now the mini123. I also bought
an 86 CJ in 86 and an 06 last year. I must have a thing for
buying just before the updated model comes out.
I'll have to try the drooling/teeth method when I have a chance.
