    Over the years I've watched and followed the LED technology developments and some nice handy lights and lanterns that have come out as a result of this technology.
    Some of my favorites include Fenix, OLight, Streamlight, Black Diamond, Nitecore and what's yours?

    I have three Eveready headlamps around, can't beat the price and utility,
    My favorite headlamp though is this Black Diamond.
    Fenix make some good headlamps too.

    I also have these handy key ring sized lights.

    Oooh, I have a flashlight fetish or so my wife says so anyway. Everyday, I carry 2 Olights on my person (I1R Eos, S1RII Ti Winter or an S1R) Olight makes high quality flashlights, and if you sign up for their email list they send emails for their flash sales which are awesome. (steep discounts on the flavor of the month) The magnetic charging system they use is impressive. I am absolutely positive that I will own more Olight Flashlights in the future.

    I also carry Niteize lights in my JLUR all the time, again USB rechargeable.

    Sorry I don't have pics right now my lights are in the garage and upstairs, and I am too lazy to go get them and take a picture. Maybe tomorrow.

    Good stuff.

    I think my next light is going to be a Larry Light 2, by NEBO.
    Tried one. Pretty practical. Only $25.

    How do you like that Streamlight Lantern? Been thinking of getting one or two for camping.

    It's a great little lantern. Between that and the Fenix with a magnetic base they are my current go to lights. I have had the Streamlight (small one) since they first came out. Not sure where they are price wise these days or if others have come out with anything better since I purchased this one a couple of years ago now. Like most lights, it could use a lower power setting to make it more a nightlight and conserve batteries.

    Another Spyderco carrier I see. My Spyderco Native is the most carried knife I own. Mostly due to weight (lack of). Not the most robust knife going due to the lack of liners or metal scales.

    That knife is a custom... It just showed up one day, had my name and rank laser engraved in the blade. I don't know who did it, but it is my favorite.
