I myself have an array of varying quality torches but, unfortunately where I worked for some time gave me a generous discount on certain items so I ended up becoming addicted to higher end lights.
The Chinese are pumping out these little LED's so fast it will make your head spin.
This Christmas I prided myself in that I bought no Christmas presents that were sourced from China. Rather, they were all made here...
I gave out MagLites and Surefires.
I have never had a Maglite fail.
My Surefire has been through hell and back and still blinds the shit out of muggers and monsters alike.
Both come with lifetime warranties. And both are upgradeable...
Yes, some of my upgrades are Chinese made but there were no Domestic equivalents and all are held to a certain quality standard.
And most Chinese products are copied from us anyway so they drop right in with no problems. Lol.
So yeah, I have Hybrids, but at least they are largely American.
Chinese batteries are getting better but I still prefer the reliability of American made cells.
