    Is it worth the extra $20-$30 per light? I don't mind it at all if it is. I just don't want a flashlight to fail on me when I need it. I'm looking to pick up a TK10 for my rifle and then something small for an EDC.

    Dunno about DealExtreme but I picked up my first Fenix (PD20) the other day for my wife to carry in her purse. I'm ordering one for myself any my SF E2E is going to end up on glove box duty.

    Yeah, I was impressed. Compared to the E2E it is 1/2 the size, 2x+ as bright, 5x the run-time, and I think the switch design is significantly less likely to be bumped on while in my pocket (which has happened twice with my E2E. Hmmm... what is that horrible burning sensation on my thigh?)

    I have the Ultrafire C1 from dx. I love it! VERY bright, good runtime, several modes and small pkg. You simply cannot beat that for $21. Get some Tenergy cr123a batts from batteryjunction.com and you're set!!!

    I'm gonna order a couple more c1 soon.

    I have a Romisen RC-G2 Q5 I got from Shiningbeam.com. He takes the RC-G2 from DX and adds the Q5 emitter. Runs off 1 AA and is solid as a tank. It's a great EDC and simply cannot be touched for $20 shipped. There's a code for shiningbeam, I think it's cpfuser or something.

    I bought an Ultrafire from Dealextreme. I stopped working the first week I had it, and their return process is a fucking joke. They said they'd give me $5, and I could take it to a local repair facility.

    Eventually they said I could send it back, but I never got a refund.
