Continued from Part 1
Intro and Overview
So based on the reports from cpf member rala, I decided to make a trip to Walmart after dropping off my kids at school (about 815am) I made my way to the automotive department, and started looking for the Stanley HID light, but only could find the Stanley1365 Halogen. There was a price tag on the shelf, but no light. Actually, the light was there, I just didn’t see it because it was behind the Halogens.
Being Friday, I had to head to the office to prepare payroll, so I did not have much time. I cut open the blister pack, squeezed the trigger, and the light flashed on for about 15 seconds and died , pretty much what I expected; batteries needed to be charged. Off to work I went. returned home just after 12 noon, and the charging indicator was green (maybe 3 ½ hours had passed). Time to PLAY !!! But before I continue, let’s look at some pics.
Here’s what the package looks like
Inside the package, this is what you get, AC Charger, DC PowerCord, and wrist strap. Oh, there’s an instructions sheet.
The top has 3 leds (gee, where have we seen this feature before?)
The reflector on the Stanley is 3 ¾ inches, ¼ larger than the N30/L35
The back has an AC charging connector, charge indicator and Hi/Low switch (italics) (much more on this feature too follow)
Inside the package, this is what you get. I couldn’t help myself. I felt compelled to void the warranty. Seems I have this responsibility, obligation….. Anyways, it has a 12 volt /3amp sealed lead battery. Take a close look, an 8,000k bulb, and note that the ballast has 10 wires (much more on this feature too follow). The construction is similar to cordless power tool, nicely done, IMHO.
