I have been wearing a Photon III around my neck since I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail a couple of years ago and find it very handy. At this point in my life I think I need a little "BLING". I don't wear any jewellery, not even a watch. So I was thinking of buying a Wee but a few things are getting in the way so I thought I'd ask the experts/owners a couple of questions:
1/ Does the Wee NS smell?
Because I want to wear it around my neck all the time, except when showering, I was concerned about the nickel smell and it tarnishing very quickly. Might have to splash out on a Wee Ti.
2/ Will the 10180 battery be available in 10 or 20 years time?
I know that one's hard to answer. It's just that with our wonderful "Spaceship Earth" filling up with passengers so quickly, as well as the ships provissions getting low, I'm trying to only buy quality items that are going to serve me well for a long time.
3/ Other than a Wee, and I think maybe the Drake, is there any other device of any kind (doesn't have to be a flashlight) that uses a 10180 battery?
4/ has anyone tried to run their Wee off of any other type of battery other than a 10180, such as 3 or 4 button cells?
I'd like to thank you for your answers and opinions in advance and also express my appreciation for all the excellent information that I've found here on CPF over the couple of years that I've been lurking in the shadows with only my Maglite Solitaires feeble beam to light the way!
