after an exciting early evening kanina
I'm suddenly in the market for a good light hehe
Whats the best light for 2t??
Preferably small enough to fit in a beltbag , led , w/ AA batteries
Was looking at a Maglite led , w/ 3 AA batteries, ok ba yun?

Fenix lights could be found at SOE. Cree bulbs are very bright.

looks expensive those fenix lights :) baka lampas budget
Doc , that light of yours mukang 2t na hehe
I need a little bigger light, mga 2 to 3 AA batteries

I dropped by SOE pa naman kahapon to have a knife sharpened , hindi pako tumingin ng lights

Sir I think you should reconsider, Fenix lights are brighter than maglights with 2 batteries. You can get the fenix for around your budget. :)

Hmmm...the lowest priced model with a CREE bulb is the LOD for 2889, the non-CREE E0 at 1089.

Just talk to Manny or Bien, I'm sure they can work something out for you.

A LOOOOT

Just imagine: I tried it last night, I'm at the street level and flashed the P3D Cree Bulb Fenix Turbo Mode 160 lumens into the 4th to 5th floor apartment building right next to me and still highly visible white light plus the inside of the room.

2k budget?

dagdagan mo ng lang ng konti....

fenix ka na!

around 2.8k to 3k yung L1D w/c uses 1 AA batt...
cree bulb, 90 lumens.... sulit to !!!

maglite uses 2 batts... pero mahina pa rin yung beam...

highly recommended si Fenix ah
Makapasyal nga ulit soe
How long does the L1D AA battery last?
Baka pwede gamitin sa night bike rides

charlie-xray
07-04-2007, 06:54
Madali po dahil po 2cm width lang po yung P3D and some L series but packs a punch, I believe SOE has the Jetbeam as well highly recommended din po yan, ang claim po sa Jetbeam is the Cadillac of Cree Bulbs.

I was browsing Fenix's site and zeroed in on the L2D with the CREE unit. Did I read that right, 135 lumens from a pair of double A's?! That's more than twice the output of my Surefire.

That's their advertised claim, you can check candlepowerforums for the real deal. It IS really bright, but keep in mind it's an LED, so incandescent (yellow bulbs) like the one in the G2 still throw further. It's a great light though.

I got the P3D.

Check them out at the shop.

a little help my friends , lumen for me is the pretty girl in the detergent commercial

How bright is 90 lumens? pwede pang outdoor?
How would a 1 cell AA L1d compare to a 3 cell AA battery mini-maglite?


9 lumens for 25 hours on a single AA? maganda pang brownouts or camping trips

Eto na lang sir: "The 2-cell AA Mini Maglite can last up to six hours on its batteries and puts out 5.30 lumens of light." from http://www.special-operations-technology.com/article.cfm?DocID=799

The Fenix is better. :)

Did anyone else experience a weird brownout tonight? I live in the Alabang area and we lost power for a short time, no real rain, but almost storm strength winds hits us and knocked the power out.

My fenix and my JetBeam came to the rescue, especially when I had to open the gate in the dark. I used highest setting when I checked the outside of the house for any fallen tree limbs etc, and the lowest setting to light my way inside the house.

Yap. The Fenix L2D is the one I got.

But really for tactical use, I would still prefer my G2 Nitrolon. Incandecent bulbs I think still reigns supreme for tactical applications. 65 lumens from Surefire G2 Nitrolon is much like 135 lumens out of white LED. Much better if you have a P61 light assembly producing 120 lumens. Try focusing it in your own eyes (I did it bro). The G2's 65 lumens from an incandecent bulb is much more painful and hotter (much like searing) to the eyes than the 135 lumens from the white LED.

The Fenix L2D though is an excellent all purpose handheld light which can do double duty as a handheld tactical light. The strobe function is superb and has tactical applications too.

Sir, Pardon for the question. How would you define a "Tactical" use for a flashlight?

For me I would define "tactical" as gaining an advantage over your opponent. After all that's what tactics is all about. Something like momentary incapacitation, impairing his vision, causing hin disorientation. It can also be something that allows you to effectively illuminate dark areas and identify threat. Tactical in the sense that it allows you to sustain the initiative that you already have or steal it from your opponent.

It is interesting to note that incandescent lights allow one to see much better and discern objects and colors than white light. Have you ever driven through a white stret light? That's exactly the reason why incandescent lights are preferred to illuminate the streets. Same principle applies to handheld lights.

Both the LED CREE lamps are very good and economical... will get the job done for most applications...

But based on my experince and reliability of flashlights... I would recommend a surefire flashlight... for a just few more hundred bucks....

Quality and Reliability === guaranteed...

G2 Nitrolon or a 6P would be a very good investment... (2.5k ~3K???)

If you could save alittle more... I'd suggest the 6P Defender...(around 3.5k~4.0K???)

Fenix lights are ok.... But I'm happy and really sold with the SF Difference...

Just my thoughts....

I agree with you here bro, SFs are really made to be tactical lights, they are more durable and have been proven through the use by policemen and the military.

I like the Fenix lights too because they're a good everyday light for normal tasks like looking for something that fell in the movie theater or checking your car engine.

I reserve my SF's for the tasks like checking some night time noises. The Fenix is for everything else. :supergrin:

I'm guessing it will be in the 40~42k range...

lets see... If I can save enough cash for a 2nd GLOCK why not...

damn... Anyone want to buy a Glock23???

When are visiting the GUNSHOW??? Will call/text thru BIEN... Really also want to get my hands on that G21SF... Reserve one for about 5K...

See you there...

My apologies to all... Back to the Topic...

Fenix lights are good... Just visit their website --- FENIXLIGHT.COM
Also visit SF's site ---- SUREFIRE.COM

The same person who was with me here yesterday had a bad experience with a tactical light. His SF G2Z Nitrolon's P61 bulb burned out at the very last minute when he went to check something outside his home. Had to return inside to replace the burned out P61 bulb with the standard P60 bulb he replaced a few months ago.

Yes, those uber-expensive incandescent bulbs have a nasty habit of burning out at the worst possible time. As such, I usually carry two lights with me just in case. Also, I have switched my primary light to a Cree-based LED from Lumapower. I'm saving up to buy one of their MRV lights, which has very, very good throw and is sufficiently bright at 210 lumens. They are more expensive than Fenix lights, but they fit my particular needs better... mahirap kaya mag-illuminate ng bukid sa gabi :supergrin:

Kaiser Soze
07-10-2007, 01:55
Before we all bash incandescent lights, please try to remember that there operate at a much higher temperature than LEDs so their lifespan is decidedly shorter. They aren't meant to be used as flashlights for everyday use, or "pambugbugan" as we like to call them, but for a specific use only, either as a weapons light or a tactical light.

That's why I have a fenix for normal use, and a 6P defender pambarog ng ulo.:supergrin:

Anyway, if it's any consolation, I don't carry a gun outside the house. I just exercise more prudence and avoid probable troublespots.

on the subject of flashlights,

i have a surefire g2 nitrolon, i dropped it while it's on and it burned out faster than you can say "what the f..k?".

on the other hand, i have 2 china led flashlights that i throw around lit and nothing happens. i have one that says 7w on the body and it very bright, brighter than the g2 in my opinion.

i dont think i'm ever buying incandescent bulbs ever again.

i'm a convert.

i have a fenix LOD and it's the bees knees!

just outside the house na ngayon :) I live in the boondocks kasi

our laborer told me there were 3 guys w/ bonnets hanging around a few klicks from the house
Next day , there was another guy hiding in the bushes daw malapit sa compound
So I investigated a sobrang dilim and found out I didnt have a flashlight ( a candle is better than my coleman )
Had to take out the car have it follow me and use the headlights
Still couldnt see anything so I started shooting at the bushes hehe
Not a very good idea now that I think bout it but that's what he gets for disturbing me while I'm in the cr@pper hehe
Kaya feeling tactical me ngayon , they better watch out
This will probably last for a few weeks at least until may ibang trip nanaman ako :)

Didnt help I went to the gunshow w/ our gunclub , di nga pala nakain sa turoturo mga yun , funyeta dapat nag bus nalang ako

Pero when I got home and tested it , daym! these mfs are bright!
It really does out perform the big maglites all from penlight battery source
The turbo mode could illuminate the 2ha. compound hanggang dulo
I hope they are reliable in the long run, I'm very very impressed for now
I'll be recommending to my bddies who are doing a 24 hour bike race, these light would be perfect!

If you think the Fenix AA and AAA models are bright, try using 10440 AAA Lithium Batteries in the LOD CE and the 14500 AA Lithium Batteries in the L1D CE. These batteries double the output of these lights by more than a 100 percent.

w/c means and L1d will put out 180 lumens w/ lithium batteries???

is this fact? or fiction? can anyone please confirm?

http://www.ultrafire-shop.com/photo/battery/14500.jpg
Shown above is the AA sized 14500 3.6v rechargable battery

The 14500 can be used for the L1D CE and the 10440 can be used for the LOD CE respectively but you can't use 2 of these in the L2D CE as it will overpower the Cree Bulb.

Imagine these LOD CE and L1D CE Fenix lights being bright at 1.5v and now powered by these batteries at 3.6v. These are now much brighter than the P1D CE which is powered by a 3v CR123 battery and the L2D CE which is powered by 2 1.5v AA Battery. :supergrin:

will using the 14500 batt (3.6v)
not damage the cree bulb of the L1D?

TIA !!!

According to CPF, the Cree Bulb takes in the maximum voltage of 4.2v so 3.7v would not harm it. But putting 2 of these inside the L2D CE(Combined voltage of 7.4v) would destroy the L2D CE's Cree bulb.

You can use your Credit Card or PayPal to buy these from www.lighthound.com

Or you can get these as a set of charger and 2 batteries in eBay:

Spare AAA battery

I carry a spare AAA Energizer inside the leatherman pouch so when the 10440 Li-Ion battery goes low, I still have some light.
(Somebody borrowed my digicam again so I'm posting cellcam pics)

Those Surefire lights with Cree heads will surely cost an arm and a leg when they are introduced :sad:

I have this light (from SOE of course!) and I like it because it its my hand better than the E2D...I've given my E2D's to my gf and my sister.

I agree that the fenix strobe function is really disorienting... Tried one on blinker mode during the gunshow and I was flash blind for about 3~5 secs... damn... (must not do that again...hehehe)

My SF 6PD works just as effective... disorienting a fellow officemate from about 20feet away (while doing a flashing / strobe effect)... (and to think that my batteries need changing already)...

Cant wait for the next CREE LED lamp from SUREFIRE...

Stay safe everyone...

According to some CPF threads, these can be used to replace the Surefire Weapon mounted bulb assemblies.

Surefire is set to debut some CREE lights soon, but I'm not sure if they will be used in weaponlights. Something about CREE lights not being made to withstand shock from recoil just yet. I'm sure that SureFire will figure it out though.

Cree Bulbs from Wolf Eyes would do

This accessory would be a great addition to LOD CE or L1D CE owners. Sad to say that it's quite dificult looking for one.

For a weaponlight I use a Surefire M78 flashlight mount on my Fenix P3D mounted on the side of my rifle with great success. LED's are supposedly "shock proof" as it doesn't have a filament to break unlike incadecent bulbs, but some have used SF G2s on their rifles with success also.

bosing atmarcella, maybe an experemental combo of this
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5369
and this
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2588
might work kasi same diameter yung light tsaka yung laser mount/holder (.83"):)

medyo mahirap nga lang pindutin yung push button sa dulo pagka nakakabit na sa baril yung lights. :sad:

SOE carries the complete line of Fenix lights and almost every type of SureFire light in existence...but I don't have a price list so it's best to either call or visit the shop bro.

Got my Fenix L2D CE today, after two hours pondering kung eto ba or yung L1D ang bibilhin ko, I decided to get this one instead coz of the availability and price of AA batteries.

I also got a LED LENSER, but the one with the two lithium batteries; much brighter than the 3AAA model, but over P3k. I got mine at Zwilling - J.A. Henckels Solingen; they stand by their products. Thing is, if you leave the batteries in, they will eventually drain, which is what happened to the batteries it came with; expensive pa naman ang lithium. I now keep the batteries in a little leather coin pouch attached to its pouch ring.

My G19 is also not far away!:)
