How? share the remedy pls.
i know where is my "stop" button. my stop button is when i have lights that cover every base i need. even if i never really need! :bsmilie:

so my needs are:
. wide flood lights (headlamps & handhelds)
. throw lights (handhelds only)
. dim task light (headlamp & handheld)
coupled with a mix of battery requirements & runtimes. cure! :lovegrin:

best cure is no $$$, no new lights. not even batteries! :bsmilie:

LOL yes the best cure is no $$$.

ok my collection:

Surefire C2, 6P
Dereelight DBS
Nitecore D10
Zebralight H30
Fenix P2D

many other china cheapo Crees.
I also do have the same thinking as you to have 1 each, flood, medium throw, long throw and simple EDC.

but ended up with bunch of light which I hardly use.

Love my pm6 3330. the LED was not as bright as the xenon version, but still i feel its good enough. And, its quite durable.

I was told the reflector unit has a lot to do with making the torch even brighter. Hence, you pay for the research and designs.

But, alot of china brands catching up and they are quite powerful as well. Well, I would prefer to pay abit more for piece of mind if i only bring one torch.

Yes, usually those more expensive ones have better build & electronics which are very reliable. I had stopped buying those cheapo ones.

Very true, my pm6 xenon 3320 went bust after a short usage. Hence changed to LED PM6. No more bulb problem!

abit extra, but where did u get ur lights from (i hope not from those DIY stores)....

i have the metal version of ur lights, namely the 2320 & the 2390. does ur light use the same drop-in module? there's brighter & more energy efficient bulbs out in the stores... ;p
