    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.

    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...

    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.
