    I'm probably not the best person to ask because I haven't purchased any new SF in a while, but I did get an LED drop in for the E1 which I really like. My most recent SF is this Titan which is also a nice EDC.

    The Convoys:

    [​IMG]

    S3 with XM-L2 T6 4C, S2+ Blue with XM-L2 T6 4C, also in Green, but with XM-L2 T6 3B, M1 with XM-L2 T6 4C, C8, with XM-L2 U2 1A De-domed, with Guppydrive firmware- a little bit on the greenish side, tint-wise, for me; and finally a pair of C8s, with clear finish, and XP-L U3 7A, with Biscotti firmware (currently programmed for 5-modes, from moonlight to blasting). These are among the warmest LED lights I own, tint-wise.

    All of the Convoys are 7135 x 8 (except for the Green S2+, which is a 7135 x 6).

    Well - not a flashlight - but definitely flashlight-related.

    This is the new Nitecore SC4 charger. I just received it a few days ago, and am loving it, so far.

    I'm afraid my pictures don't seem to do the charger justice. Nitecore did an amazing job, with their website pictures, though (as they always do).

    So far, I've only charged a handful of 18650 batteries (and some AA NiMhs, as pictured above) in it, but it does exactly as promised, and has the ability to charge at up to 3 Amps, through two of the slots (perfect for the bigger 26650 batteries, for speed charging).

    The spring tension feels a little bit wimpy, compared to all of my XTAR chargers, but that's just being nit picky.

    The display is a far cut above that of the D4 it replaced (both, clearer, and more colorful - although these pictures are in Black and White lol). It is not defeat-able, but dims, after three minutes of non-use.

    It's significantly larger than the D4 (taller, deeper, and wider), but that's not a big deal. The heat sinking in this one is certainly better (it barely warms up, to the touch, even with bigger batteries - compared to the D4).

    I like that they placed the buttons on top, rather than on the side, as the D4 had, so I could set these, side-by-side, without locking access to the buttons.

    I'm still getting used to the program-ability of the individual charging slots. Maybe in the next few days or so, I'll try and get some better pictures of it, and have some more comments; but I can say that I liked it so much, I've ordered a second one (through BLF Group Buy - killer deal).

    This one arrived in a little over a week.

    I'm still an avid XTAR charger fan, but this is really a step up, for Nitecore (I previously had a pair of i4 V2s, and a pair of D4s, before these two), and I'm glad to have made the purchase.

    I started to carry my Zebralight a bit more, carried the Fenix LD10 pretty much every day since I got it except for a couple of months when I experimented carrying a different light.

    Quick comparison shot between the Malkoff MD2 (top) and MDC/VME combo (bottom).

    Just got this in. Seems very well built. Only charged a couple sets of AA and AAA so far, but seems to work very well and all the info on the screen is very nice. This photo shows weird artifacts in the screen. You do not see these in real.

    EDIT: I plan on getting a D2 (smaller two channel instead of 4) as well to keep in my vehicle as a travel charger to use with my power inverter.

    I used a pair of those D4s, for about three years, and a pair of i4 V2, before that. The D4s were a huge step up, with the nicer metering, and the ability to charge LiFePO4 batteries.

    [​IMG]

    I recently picked up four of their SC4 units, since there was a fantastic deal, through a Group Buy, on Budget Light Forums.

    [​IMG]
    Absolutely love them :)

    I'm kind of a charging fanatic, and I use a lot of lights, daily, so having multiple chargers has made it easier to keep with up my charging needs.

    The chargers seem to have multiplied, like rabbits :|
    [​IMG]

    I keep the XTAR MC6 and the two MC1 Plus units in my car, for on-the-go charging, but have rarely needed to charge, in the car, since I'm fairly religious about charging whatever batteries I used that day, once I get home, in the evening. It's still a nice option to have, just in case.
