    Well I have the 6p led standard that I take in and out of my truck to use for daily shit, and Im looking to get another one so I can just leave it in my truck. My question is If price was no option what kind would you get I would like to keep it about the same size as the 6p so under 6 inches but im open to anything. Also I was wondering if anybody had any experience with the defender, for breaking windows and such not really attacking people:)

    looks like good stuff Ill look into those, I like how they stay at the consistent rating until they die and not turn into the terrible light quality that mine does when its low on battery

    The "splines" are not really pointed enough to be an ideal "safety tool" for breaking windows. They are designed for the pressure point compliance. You would be much better to buy the 6P and a "as seen on tv" life saver windshield breaking tool, if vehicle rescue is your primary concern.

    As for money no object, I like the Kroma. It has 3 different colors; Red, White, and Blue, with 2 levels of intensity for each color. It is very handy and will run as many as 80 hours on the lowest power setting.

    I keep one of these in my camera bag, the red bulb is VERY handy when I'm out shooting pictures at night. Plus, you can push the tail button for high intensity white light at any time.

    Even thought this is a $200 plus light, I have customers who have bought several, each.

    i have the ED2 defender. not so sure you can smash a window with it. jamming it into some guys soft tissue parts..would hurt him bad. right after you blind him into confusion with the white lazer of bedazzlement...

    i WOULD NOT leave it in a car. i would cry losing that torch. for my truck, i have a regular G2 nitrolon. same brightness, less ..way less $$.

    i clip my defender into my pocket when i go out at night into san francisco. one time, in an elevator, the lights went out. when i flipped on the my flashlight, the ladies thought i was their savior..it was funny. blackout lasted about 30 seconds.hahha..or i could have gotten a date, cept i'm married.
