EDC illumination?

Recommended Posts

What do you all carry for EDC illumination? I need to replace my stalwart Streamlight Microstream. Before I ran out and got another (which I'm perfectly fine with) I thought I'd test the waters of other manufacturers. I don't like the bigger CR123-running tactical flashlights; they're too big to stuff in a jeans pocket and not be obtrusive; I'll beep it to AA or (preferably) AAA powered.

 

Thoughts? Recommendations? Aaaaaaannnnnd...GO!

Pak-lite ultra 9 volt and a LED key chain light 1,200 hours on a GOOD 9 volt battery on low soft and 80 hours on high.

it is barley larger than the battery it has a glow after use so you can find it in the dark IMHO there is no better longer lasting on a single battery on this plant for it's size  I have a silicone slogan wrist band it fits in (under) perfectly,


here is a link    http://9voltlight.com/

 

Used a Streemlight NANO but it eats coin batteries like chicklets and unless you buy them in cards from a independent dollar store or off ebay they will suck your billfold dry !

 

 keep a crank emergency flashlight / radio in the glove box

 

Have a Pelican "C" battery with AA Panasonic enloop batteries in enloop "C" adapters in the truck

a AA 5 LED keychain lite on my spare ring my mobile phone flashlight app a USB battery bank to charge the phone 2 times,

 

I am like any red neck cowboy your in deep sh*t if you come at me anytime but if I get to my truck your S.O.L.

 

Last I carry a BIC lighter

 

many buildings I go in are large if the power goes then I like not to trip over everything on the way out I was in a attic today

My EDC doesn't change much through the years, pocket knife, Bic lighter and Streamlite Microstream in the left front pocket.  After I had the Microstream for a couple of years, I was so impressed with it that when I found them on sale, I bought 4 more.  I like to experiment with guns, knives and flashlights and it isn't often that I run across something that does everything I want it to do.  The Microstream meets that criteria, just enough light, perfect size and unbelievable battery life.  You obviously have found that out for yourself.

Butler Ford,

 

You hit the nail on the head. I ordered a Fenix LD02 and a Surefire Titan, but I still like the Microstream best. I like the simple on/off tailcap controls - no multiple levels of brightness and tailcap tapping or adjusting. Kinda stupid for a 3" long friggin' flashlight.

Drew, I couldn't find a Streamlight Titan but did find Surefire Titan...HOLY LIGHTBEAMS, BATMAN!!!  $90 for a single AAA flashlight!!  Granted 300 Lumens is awesome but you better find what you need very quickly!  After you've played with it for a while, I'd really like to hear an honest review.

Hah! Nice catch! I have edited my post. You are correct, it's a Surefire Titan. I didn;t get the 300 lumen bigger Titan Plus, I bought the $50 125-lumen standard Titan. it's still quote bright, but I don't like the bezel twist on/off activation feature.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
