    Look at:

    TL does not sell direct, but a quick Google search found:
    http://www.zbattery.com/TLE-100S-Str...20X-LED-module

    http://www.led-replacement.com/tle-100s.html

    http://www.genesis7supply.com/index....PROD&ProdID=90

    http://defensedevices.com/led-conver...light-20x.html

    or else look for a local retailer.

    Regarding the battery stick, look around for a local battery shop that will build / sell you a NiMH stick to replace the OEM one. NiCd & NiMH can be charged with the same chargers.

    Always consider smaller, lighter and brighter plus rechargeable - they ARE out there!

        Anyone else try this T7????????

        been looking for another light and this looks awesome

          Looks like a decent light... except for the fact that it uses alkaline batteries. With me using my lights in cold weather (sometimes in the teens) around here, that would be a problem.

                Lithium primaries and lithium-ion rechargeables perform better in the cold, alkalines better in the heat.

                  going back and forth between batteries seems like a pain IMO

                    More a case of, are you working - 40 (F or C, either way, its COLD!!!!) or + 40 C (+ 100 F) night shifts mostly? When you store your batteries, are they in a frozen or sun-baked trunk? I DO work in an area that experiences 80 C range of temperatures, and while my lithiums have not become like lit fusees in the summer, I have seen my alkaline powered lights die off prematurely in the winter.

                    Given the latest advances in LED emitters and li-ion rechargeable cells, I highly recommend going that route. Having said that, however, if a person was partial to Mag-style / sized lights, incandescent light sources and NiMH power sources, Black Bear lights seem to be very interesting.

                      I got the Lenser T7 and love it, if that helps. But I don't have the Fenix so I can't say if it is or isn't better.

                          You could always just get 4 AAA rechargables to pop in.


                          I've had my T7 for a couple of months. Still love it and so far I have not even replaced the alkalines that came with the light. It definitely changed my perspective on LED lights.
                          Don't ever pass up an opportunity to keep your mouth shut.

                                So I finally got a chance to play around with my Pelican 7060 during some training, a lot of people had streamlights and surefire and out of all the lights mines was the brightest (freaking thing is like a spotlight) but also the biggest, I don't think is that big compare to the maglite that we're suppose to carry. I paid 100bucks for it with shipping and it was worth it, even today at the training they said you will use your flashlight more than anything else on your belt especially for us rookie pukes working the late tour and grave yard....... I still haven't found a nice leather case for the pelican 7060, anyone know where I could get one that will fit?
