    Got mine from Sheares for $31, a pretty strong torch with only 1 LED and uses only 1 AA. I used it in my trip to Tibet, carrying it with me everywhere I went, illuminated the dark areas and towns easily.

    Normal (Krypton) Maglite or LED Maglite, Arto?

    IMO, the Krypton Maglite cannot compare to the present LED torches. I have Maglites from the Solitaire up to 4D. The whiteness of the light and the coverage (not throw) of the beam pales on comparison to the LED counterparts. However, I have not used any of the 3W LED Maglites before, so I can't comment on those Maglites.

    Modification to krypton bulb? I thought that it is krypton bulb modified to be LED. I think that you got it the other way around. See: http://www.maglite.com/LED_Mod.asp

    I just got the C5 from Cateye, Tactical Vision C5.

    Single AA, $45, 3 Level brigtness with 1 SOS, 1 Standby.

    Not a bad torch. Was comparing it with Fenix L2D-CE.

    Might be getting the L2D-CE or whatever that comes along later on. Only worried about the L2D-CE loose tail ring issue.

    having a single flashlight is not good enough, you'll need a backup for the main light, and a backup for the backup

    Thanks for the great service CarEYE. But just out of curiosity, what problem will a loose tail-ring cause? Loose contact? Could not power on?
