Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

An EDC flashlight is something I never considered until the past year or two.  This idea came from communicating with people on knife forums.  Seems there is a bunch of flashlight nuts out there just like a bunch of knife nuts.  These guys even collect lights and get excited when their favorite company comes out with a new model.  They have to buy one even though they already have around 50 (or more) flashlights already of all different sizes, shapes, colors, uses, etc.  Have you ever heard of anything so rediculous?  lol  Betcha have. :)  There is even a "candlepower" forum specifically for lights.  I might have the forum name wrong.

Anyway, I now have 3 lights.  I have bought 5 or 6.  They don't excite me like a pocket knife might but I have been carrying a Fenix LD01 light (single AAA) in my pocket for about a year.  It's as common there as a pocket knife.  I can even take it into the courthouse or airport. :)

In the past several years (10 or 15) the technology has improved without me knowing.  I used to carry a Mini-Maglight (2 AA batteries) in  my tool pouch.  Now my single AAA battery light out performs that thing by about 3 times.  It's amazing.  I can walk the dog or look under the couch for the grandson's toy with a brightness applicable for each. My Fenix LD01 has 3 brightnesses and that's all it does.  Some of the lights you can get these days have strobe, SOS, many brightness levels and will change the baby's diaper in a pinch.

I even invested in a battery charger for AA and AAA batteries.  This thing is a godsend for my 3 year old grandson's toys in addition to flashlights or any battery device.  NEVER don't have a AA or AAA battery anymore.

Are there any light nuts here?  If so I thought it might justify a group.

Here is my light attached to a small knife.  I always carry the light now and prefer to have a "keychain knife" attached to it instead of my keys.  Sorry about the blurry picture.  Camera's fault of course. :)

Well I know you are going to find this hard to believe Jack: http://www.iknifecollector.com/group/ikcflashaholics

Yep we have a Group for that!

Trying to decide if I need to start one for Zippo Lighters?

You are partially right.  I'm NOT surprised there is already a group.  I am surprised I missed it because I looked before posting.  Then again, I find myself missing a lot of things I look for these days. lol  Shoulda used my flashlight. LOL
