    From left to right:
    Blue LEDs;
    Open White, No color;
    with L161 (used to be my running show blue);
    with L285 [3/4 CTO] (for better color temperature).

    If I have 3 then I don't see what's wrong with you having 4.

    Looks like you actually need 5 of them. Unless that N/C one is one of those new ones off course. I bought the one that takes 3 AA's and my friend got the one that took 2 AA's. The 3 AA unit produced a much brighter, whiter light. It is still perfectly bright completely across the auditorium or up in the grid, and best of all, the LED is focusable.

    I liked it so much that I bought a second one to keep in my car at all times to replace the D cell one I had in there since it was significantly brighter. I've now also purchased the retrofit made by Maglight to convert my D Cell for outdoors use. Mag doesn't make the retrofit that I've seen yet for the miniMags.

    If you don't mind lugging them all around... I don't see why not. I suppose you could phase out one of the blues... (yes... I know they are different colors)

    I direct all borrowing inquiries to my loan officer. I tell applicants to go to Helen Waite.

    I don't think that he carries all four of them at the same time. I don't, but then, I only have one.
