I own between 20 and 25 flashlights., most of them cost between $5 and $25, with ultrafire probably the dominant brand. Around 10 run on 18650's(my fenix E35 is probably considered the best, although not nearly the brightest;love the mode memory and tremendous runtimes) around another 10 on AAs(probably the thrunite T10 and Inova X1 my favorites, mostly due to runtimes), 3 AAAs, and 1 14500.  I used to think that Brighter is Always Better, but lately have begun to embrace the value of "lower lumens-longer runtimes" as espoused by "selfbuilt" on cpf.

Wow, you have more than I do hehe :) I think you're off to a good start :P

Have you considered doing any modification work yet ?

No "Modding" for me(I'm not smart enough to do that), but I Have bought Several more flashlights since my last Post(I'm "Bingeing";  buying my Own Xmas presents).  Since my last post I have added a Nitecore MT21A and a Jetbeam PA20(Both Great 2AA lights, and Both on Sale for Less than 25 bucks each), a Second Rayovac 2AA Indestructible, a Fenix E01and a Nitecore T0(Both AAA Keychain lights, the Fenix on sale for less than $10, and the Nitecore for less than $9), and a Solarforce T1 U2(This one is in Transit; I can't Wait for it to get here).  I have also bought more Eneloop AA rechargeable batteries, as well as a few Protected Panasonic 18650s.  I just figured up last night how much I have spent on Flashlights and Knives in the last 6 mos, and It Ain't Pretty !!  I am going to really cut back for a while; Really !

Hehehe...yeah, good luck with that, Hammer! :D   You seem to really like the AA lights.  I suggest you save just a little and get yourself a Sunwayman D40A.  One of the best lights around!

Are you classified as a flashaholic? Maybe. I can think of other names.  :)
When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.

Thank you for the welcome.

I am still in the process of 4 or 5 mods right now. I usually start a mod then think of a way to improve change a previous mod and jump over to it. With so many unfinished mods I always have something to look forward to each day.

Don't actually know where they all are but think they current herd is around 130, down from around 160 due to lights that got binned or given away. I think I've sold around 10 lights ever. Here's a 4 year old picture of the herd. Which had 94 lights in it at the time. That pic has the single most expensive light I've ever bought.

Very nice, Don!  I'm guessing the most expensive one is either the big silver one in the back row middle or one of the smallest ones.

LOL! Holy crap!  I just noticed the 2 6D mags in the back left.  So much bigger than the other lights I didn't even see them as flashlights. :P
