G2x. But really, it's too big most days. But I have three of them so I usually just grab one and throw it in my cargo pocket

Either a FourSevens 'Noisy Cricket', one cell, 800lm. Or FourSevens Regen MMR-X. Usually the former now, unless I'm working.

4Sevens Quark 123^2 Turbo on belt (soon to be replaced with FourSevens QP2A, which runs on 2x AA's and has the same user interface as the Fenix)

Fenix LD10 in back left pocket

Streamlight Stylus Pro (blue) in my shoulder bag

Quark Mini-123 in a Fenix headband also in my shoulder bag

3D LED Maglight between my driver's seat and center console (maybe not EDC but it goes everywhere the truck goes)

Almost all my flashlights are tinkered.

 

I EDC (not more than 2 of):

 

- Fenix L0D-CE (circa 2007, to be updated)

- My Rantanplan Ultrafire A20 (hence my avatar)

- A Sunwayman lego light, with extended and bored body to fit larger batteries

- a thrice modded Rexlight 2.0 (beats ANY AA light in the market)

- a stubby Solarforce L2M with a DIY module at 1200lumens

MODS!!! BAN HIM!!!!!! He linked to CPF! Now I'm going to browse for hours, spend hundreds, try to build a super light, fail, and fall into a pit of depression and end up with another sure fire. lol



Currently I'm carrying a Fenix PD22 paired with a Surefire Backup. I love Fenix!

Sorry Psycho, but on ITS gear enabling isn't just allowed... It's mandatory.

My EDC light for the last 10 years (including 3 trips to the sandbox) has been a Surefire 6P that I converted to LED when the came out with the LED bulbs for it.  It's stock, no mods.  But dang that thing won't die, aside from the finish is just about worn off.  I love that light and it goes wherever I go.

Pocket light is an L3 Illumination L10C (AA)

At work, I generally also carry a Streamlight ProTac-HL

I also went and checked out your blog. Yeah... I'm guessing it's full of useful information, but my Greek is a bit rusty!   O_O

My regular EDC is a Sunwayman V11R.  I've got the AA extender for it.  Any hints as to where I could get it modded?  I'm curious about the topic.  You can either post here or PM me.

My mod was to bore out the AA extender and use 17500 lithium ion batteries. AA size long but thicker.

I used a lathe but one can bush bore it. i.e with a dowel and sandpaper . The trick is not to go further than the lip on the forward edge (have a look).

Other mods are to replace the LED with a newer version or better tint. that requires some candlepowerforums search for an experienced modder or someone that has done it before properly.

When the light was in its prime there were group buys for titanium parts and tritium vial installation.

My EDC carry is a Lenslight mini TAD edition in desert tan if I have cargo pockets and Rogue Gunfighter Mini Pen Light or a County Com Maratac AAA light in my watch pocket.
