    I am trying to get a good mix, like when I put the P7 on the non zoom it is nice flooded bright light but it doesn't light up enough of the distance.

    I just moved house and walk my dog in the pitch black in the middle of nowhere, and he is a whippet, and he finds rabbits :p So he likes to bolt away into the distance, so flood of light I get now but a much further distance of said flooded light would be outstanding. Although the P7 is "fine", I am a man, I want a manly man torch ARGH!

    Yeah I can't be doing with all these tiny torches, I like a good old manly torch too. Like the EA41 is still a tad small for my liking. But the large torches are rather pricey, including the EA41 for what it is, as it took me quite a few months to press the "buy button". Anyway Im sure the size of the EA41 will be will be fine for me, as its quite a chunky light with a ok size reflector and hopefully it will last me a fair few years..

    The bigger the mah the longer the charge. :D

    I got the Eagletac, no problems so far.

    You may also need a charger: http://www.flashaholics.co.uk/batteries/li-ion-chargers.html

    What's a good reliable make and model of 18650 battery that won't break the bank?

    Just recieved my Fenix PD35 and my Eagletac 18650, only it's a Nitecore battery instead (same mAH). Is it worth grumbling about or have I got a better battery? The Nitecore is £5 more than the Eagletac and it's from Flashaholics so shouldn't be a fake one.

    Both great batteries so as long as it too has the protection circuit then much of a muchness.

    My Thrunite TN36 just turned up and at 6510lm it's twice as bright as anything I've owned before.

    Feels good in the hand and the UI suits me.

    If I feel the need that my Nitecore EA41 torch isn't enough or get obsessed with torches, I think the Nitecore Tiny Monster TM26 looks like a good upgrade and it looks like a much more manly torch then the EA41:D.........
