    Cheaper maybe but just S$2-S$5 cheaper.

    The TL3 price in US is US$66.97 = S$111 (base on 1.67 thats what the credit card charge even when the exchange rate is only 1.63)
    The cheapest mail is around US$5 around S$8

    So the total will be $119 (but this is non-registered postage, so it may get lost on its way to Singapore

    For this model, Its better to get in Singapore. no need to wait no need to worry about lost package.
    U can actually bargin the price down to $120++ cos they always give a min of 5%-10% discount.

    Agreed. My friend have lost some items buying "non-insured". Other option is buy in bulk like mass order.

    had few shipments from US via GPM, so far so good, received all my package. Btw, brightguy.com selling TL-3 for $59.95. If i were to get from US i will definitely order more than 1 item or share the shipment cost with some other friends. :P

    12 LEDs should be bright enough for normal usage, it gives a lot of flood, don't expect any throw distance from it. Should be good enough for normal usage and close up work but i find it a bit big and bulky

    Its good for looking for things in a Small room or anything less than 8-10meters.

    Anything more than 10mins. I think a cheap 2xAA maglight will be better as it has a reflector and can project the light beam furthur.

    powerful lights like surefire uses 2xCR123, sucks batt too, and the batt costs more $3 each from eastgear

    what's your requirement and budget ? xenon lamp with throw distance ? need to light up something e.g. 10m away. Or as a walking light, to light up surrounding only ?

    think i'll use my mag light for long distance, so i'll wanna buy one that can last long and uses AA batt so i can use my rechargable for lighting up surrounding like you said. but it will be for outfield in total darkness.

My Inova 24/7 with only 4 white LEDs is brighter (on high beam) than those cheap made in china 12 LED lights and it throws better too, but price is 3x more lor. (if u r willing to pay, but you definitely get quality for sure). There are good made in China lights around, as good as if not better than those made in US. You can try Pila, very solid! Streamlight or Quantum III also good. Hope this help.


    Just my 2 cents.
    sounds good to me, price ain't a prob for me if its worth the price i paid for and most importantly rugged and long lasting.

    If you are looking for cheap and long lasting batt life, go for a CMG infinity
    Around $30++ uses one AA batt, and can last for around 20 hrs.

    http://www.flashlightreviews.com/rev...nity_ultra.htm


    But I think that you should be the Streamlight TT. cos it will still have a better lightbeam than your maglight and at the same time if you only need long batt long life, just turn on the LED only and you batt can last for 80hrs

    yup, the eastgear light should be good enough for such purpose, even my CMG infinity ultra single LED can light up my bedroom at night
