    Used to think the same but after 2 of the P6 (dual AA) having issues with the switch start playing up and not being able to get spares (or even a reply from Lenser!) I decided to try the 5.11 Been good so far and I at least can get a replacement end cap switch for it

      The Nitecores come with a spare tail switch and spare o rings, I'm sure they're not the only ones to come with spares these days.

        My enthusiasm for a torch is inverse to it's size.

        Nitecore TIP. 500mAh Lion USB rechargeable, multi-mode, key-chain torch... max at 320 lumens!?



        Hmmm, makes my hand look big

        edit: Of course the 1 lumen for 46 hours mode is arguably more useful day to day

          I actually just grabbed one of these as well... was going to post it up but you beat me to it!!! I grabbed one to sit in the car glove box and can be charged via USB.

          The other purchase was this monster:

            Cool. Might have to get one for the car.
            $50 on catchoftheday ATM.

            Both of my P7s have been destroyed through battery leakage.
            Not going to replace them - as good as they were.

            I have an H14.2 that is my goto headlamp for camping etc...

              I've got a mini Led Lenser F5. It's bright... but I also have a HID torch that's as big as my arm... its a damn spotlight! You could cook an egg on the lens after about 1 minute of use too.

                Update:

                I rocked that little puppy doing a midnight shoot up at the Pinnacles. I had a high output torch for light-painting duties but needed something with lower outputs simply for getting around in the dark without killing my night-vision. The flat form-factor and light weight makes it comfortable to hold in your mouth for hands-free use.

                Has a battery indicator (internal led flashes) - and after a full night's use and a few days of messing about testing etc it still is above 50% charge. Only issue is that it can turn on in your pocket unless you use the lockout function, so perhaps flusher buttons would have been better.

                  I was reading up on this and the lock out, instant hi and low functions make it real user friendly too. I' considering gifting my little BT-01 and buying one of these.

                    The TIP is a good little addition. Like it.

                      Just another shout out for the TIP.
                      Been using them a fair bit lately, around the house, at work, 4WDing...

                      I've got four now.
                      They're in bags and cars all over the place.

                      Awesome punch for such a small torch, and I almost can't remember the last time I charged any of them.

                      The new ones by default have a 30 second auto-off setting, just in case you turn it on by accident.
                      It can be over-ridden by pressing and holding both buttons (light will flash twice).
                      Also has a 'clip' now that you can use to attach it to a hat visor or chain... or extend to hold it between your teeth if that's your thing.

                        Been using 5.11 torches for a while now at work and around the house/shed and find them great

                        I have an XBT-A2 and a TMT-A2 I use for work, an XBT-A2 in the house and a TMT-PL Penlight in the car for emergencies
                        I like the fact the A2 just take 2 x AA batteries which are easy to source (and free from work if I can find them) and the PL just takes a AAA No need for fancy/expensive/hard to obtain batteries
