My current favorite EDC light is the Sofirn C01 with a Yuji 3200K LED. It's basically the same design as a Fenix E01, but with a much warmer tint and even longer runtime. Like the E01, it is a joule thief AKA battery vampire circuit. I love the 3200K tint. So, what I would like to see is the same thing with a solid copper body.

This is what I'm looking for in a primary pocket EDC flashlight: - runs off 10440/AAA battery; - built-in USB charger; - lightweight body - aluminium or titan; - clicky switch - side or tail; - lock-out mode; - 300+ max lumens output; - 4+ brightness modes, including moonlight; - at least 1 blinker mode (SOS/strobe); - high CRI; - warmish or neutral white tint; - tail with a keyring hole; - glow in the dark lens ring, button and/or a trit slot; - water and drop resistance (common sense). These two almost tick the boxes: 1. Ultratac K18 v2019 - not alumium/titan; - no moonlight mode; 2. Folomov EDC C1 - not alumium/titan; - no keyring hole; - no built-in USB charger, although provided battery has micro-USB charging port; - no glow in the dark.

For smaller AA or AAA lights i prefer to have a pre programmed multimode and usually a warmer led. For cr123a and 18650 lights on the more "tactical" spectrum full programability is a plus. Recently in my current situation obtaining cr123a batteries has proven troublesome so 18650s have been my move.

Astrolux MF01, Olight X7 Marauder, Haikelite MT03 Devourer , Imalent, I've only been collecting for about 6 months so I'm still learning. Of course there are the big boys, Imalent MS12, Acebeam X65, but those are a little expensive for this crowd (me included)

I’m really digging Olight lights lately. A lot of bang for your buck plus cool recharging features. I have their PL Mini weaponlight that is tiny, 400 lumens, magnetic lithium polymer rechargable battery and a M18 Maverick light Ive carried about 2yrs with a mini usb recharable 18650 battery. They keep upping their game.

Having used an Olight in a professional environment for over 5 years I would really like to see them here. I'm sure that there are Chinese manufacturers are great in terms of both performance and quality, but for me as a buyer nothing can replace hard earned experience with a product.

I can’t agree with you more. I feel like every aspect of the light is accounted for. Value, quality, reliability, function, form, variety. Just s great company with great lights. They do very few bead blasted ti...would love to see that here.

Jetbeam Jet II pro are awesome. Anything above the 250 lumens that is not a Keychain light. Add in USB charging, magnetic tailcap and tritium. Self defense and copper are my fav aspects of a good flashlight. A good pocket clip that also can clip to your hat. Rovyvon titanium is a great little EDC light, tiny. Articulated heads are great as well. All need to be drop and water resistant. Good grip and clickiness is necessary. Able to reach ultra low (moon beam) and turbo fast is a must. Personally I use those two the most but I do like to step it down to a medium lumins setting as well. Last bit not least throwie... Beam should throw a good distance. Thanks!
