    Can the 10180 be charged on the AAA Nano charger. On Orb's website it says to use the CR123 Nano charger, but on Lighthounds website it says to use the AAA charger, and would the charging spacer be different?

    Thanks for any help.

    Well, I have a wee that came with an 10180 and a CR123 Nano charger, and I have a drake that came with a 10180 and a AAA Nano charger. The batteries themselves appear to be identical. I haven't made a detailed side-by-side comparison of the two chargers in action, but at a casual glance they seem to work equally well. Certainly the spacer are different for each charger, as the size of each is different.
    Hope that helps.

    My Wee arrived this morning! I, and everybody in my house, love it! Now I just need to find a decent lanyard for it. I have a Lockheed one somewhere but I can't find it!

    Thanks, I guess either charger will work then, it's just a matter of having the right spacer.

    They are charging to the same voltage, correct?

    I wonder how the charger knows to stop at approx. 1.5Volts vs approx. 3Volts.

    I think there may be a misunderstanding here. The "AAA nano" charger mentioned above is this one:
    http://www.lighthound.com/index.asp?...OD&ProdID=2462

    It only does 3.6 Volt Li-ion batteries, even though it's intended size is the 10440 aka "AAA size". Don't confuse these with "real" AAA (alkaline/NiCad/NiMH) 1.5V batteries.

    I took receipt of my Ti Wee today, and must compliment Rob on his fine work!! A very cool little light, exhibiting great workmanship and thinking.

    Thanks Rob for creating something unique & wonderful!

    I have decided to get for my wife a Wee NS to be attached to a long silver chain necklace. Because the main purpose of this light will be occasional use during domestic chores I have chosen the 25 lumen output which I deem suitable for the application. I have also added blue trits, spare cell, charger and clip.

    Looking forward to this exciting light.

    siciliano,

    It is always a good idea to make sure everything has gone through correctly, especially where money is concerned. Have you emailed Rob directly?

    His email address is @gmail.com. Before the '@', you want to put 'lummii' Be careful, there are two 'i's, despite the fact that the company name only has one 'i'.

    I'am helping out my fellow countryman siciliano who's new around here.

    He ordered a Wee plus some accessories on May 21st through the Lummi website and paid by Paypal. The Paypal receipt bore all the right info including the name 'Robert Cheetam'. Siciliano also sent a few mails to the right Gmail address including the two 'i's but got no answer. I remember that in my case last month there was no need of an additional email: upon receipt of the Paypal notice of payment Rob confirmed shortly.
    Finally we notice that Rob has not posted here since May 23, is he away?

    Conclusion: will Rob please contact siciliano and tell him when he is going to ship the Wee.

    Thanks.

    Rob was in touch with me yesterday, so I am pretty sure he is around.

    I wonder if siciliano's email is somehow getting filtered by Gmail by mistake.

    I just got my Wee NS and having had an aluminum Raw previously which might be a problem if it was run over, I just don't see how you would get any damage to a Wee NS by any means!

    It is so small and stoutly built, especially with the integral reflector, that the only thing I would worry about would be surface scratching.

    This thread looked a little ignored the last couple years and I guess getting my first Wee is a good time to get it going again! By the way, anyone with a 25 or 50 lumen pill that doesn't need it, send me a PM.

    If the variable output Wee ever comes to fruition it will be the premiere tiny light on the market!
