In light of my current design project (an emergency flashlight), I've decided on upgrading my EDC flashlight.
I currently have an Arc AAA-P on my keychain, which is exceptional for light duty and is solid as a rock.
I also have a Surefire G2 (incandescent) that I use for more demanding tasks, as well as camping, urban exploration, night hiking, and searching for my cats when they hide 8-)
The Surefire is a nice light but at 60 lumens/1hr of runtime (with TWO CR123s), it's not very efficient.
I wish I could afford an Arc 6, but $300 is steep.
I've been looking at the Novatac series as well as the Surefires. I am very confused as to the differences between the Novatac line. Can someone please explain this to me?
Also, how do you guys like the Surefires as compared to the Novatacs? Perhaps the E1B and L1 in the Surefire line.
Ease of use is a huge factor to me. I want something that is drop dead reliable but never a hassle to adjust.
