    Hi Morgan,

    I think you got it wrong. KL5 doesn't cost that much. I bought mine for $250. The L5 Lumamax will cost about $350.

    Aiyo Morgan,

    I suppose you should know that no one doing a business would quote you discounted prices over the phone right? What if a competitor calls up? It happens everywhere, Cathay Photo, Alan Photo, Max Photo, even IT stores and so on...

    Sheares would quote me a high price over the phone too but when I clarify who I am then they would give me a discounted price. I suggest you make your way down there.

I ended up initially with an Underwater Kinetics Q40 which uses 4 AAs to power. I thought that was it, but until I come across Surefire's website http://www.surefire.com that I realised what I have is peanut.

    I am now a happy owner of the Surefire M2 Millennium combat light with 120 lumens light output, a Streamlight Scorpion with 60 lumens light output, and the Inova X5T LED light with about 5 lumens output.

    If there is anyone in CS who is interested in torchlight (flashlight in States) hobby, please feel free to write down your experience and/or why you are into this hobby. You may feel free to PM me if you would like to arrange a trip overnight in Pulau Ubin to play torches and take photos.
    gee i guess u can make a hobby out of everything

    maybe all potential buyers should check out the respective websites for the US prices before buying..

    and you'll roughly know what are the price ranges, before asking how come this one/that one so expensive as compared to certain buyers' actual purchase price..

Example, if I go in-camp I don't have to worry about the sand and soil scratching my Hard Anodized touch and disfiguring it. Nitrolon plastic is very much scratch resistant. Even if scratched, it won't be so obviously bad. I had initially wanted the G2 Nitrolon that retails S$75 instead of the G2z but it is the extra lanyard, Pyrex lens, and combat grip that made me purchased the G2z.

    Try not to.

    You may shorten the lifespan of your bulb (not a documented theory, don't take my word for it). Lithium 123 batts don't contain liquid in them like alkaline batts and they have a lifespan of 10 years. They won't leak, they hold on to their power whereas alkaline deteriorate daily under intense heat. Most powerful torchlights are built to withstand heat because a flashlight can get really hot after turning it on a while if it is the powerful type.

    If your flashlight is made of aluminium, you should not worry but if there is any plastic or rubber coating, it will deteriorate over time to the heat, and not forgetting the silicone grease on the rubber 'O' rings being baked by the sun over time.

    Sounds contradicting? A flashlight built to withstand heat can't hold on under sun? Nobody uses a torchlight hours in a row but if your torch is in the glove compartment of your car, it may be there for hours and days.

    So far...not that I know of. Most LED lights are very small and compact. Most take either CR123 batts, Alkaline AA and AAA, and some uses LR44 or the likes but I don't recall seeing one made for size 'C' batts.

    If I remember correctly, Maglite is manufacturing an LED head for their torch. You may want to check out Maglite for the latest products. If they really do have, you can buy the torch and change the bulb. But, support for Maglite in Singapore is still very poor. most shops carry a lot of old products and not the latest range.
