    Yes, The battery IS replaceble. But, Due to its water resistant design,
    It will have to be changed by yours truly.. And if that ever happens,
    I will only ask for you to send it back to me to take care of it
    (psst, That means the battery replacement is free )

    What if you get hit by a bus the day before the battery dies? What would I do then?

    Is it not user-serviceable because of the silicone filling alone, or are there other seals that need to be broken to remove the covers? Is it possible to order one that I could service myself, even if it means I couldn't go swimming with it? It would never hit any water deeper than a puddle or a running sink anyway.

    Hmm, fyrstormer, Sabrewolf "bites the dust"? I'd say you'll just have to go it on your own and see if he was wrong about the user not being able to change the battery! Prayers might be in order if you're the religious type...

    Heeey! You putting a curse on me?
    I have these lights sealed up real good.
    All the components are fully potted in
    a 2-Part silicone that protoects them from
    the elements. And on top of that, The
    covers are glued to the top and bottom.
    You would have to break the glue bond,
    And then cut through the silicone.
    I would definately Not advise this due to
    the possibility of cutting into the battery
    and causing a big mess That being said,
    If you really want to handle that task on
    your own then i won't stop ya. I can
    supply you a battery too.

    I was just offering the replacement
    service as a courtesy because i know
    people dont like to tackle jobs like that.
    The replacement service is indeed free
    of charge to any of the original owners.
    And I would only ask for return shipping
    and the cost of the battery to anyone
    that bought the light from the original
    owner. The battery is about 8 dollars,
    and shipping is about 4. So 12 Bux
    Hopfully that seems fair to ya

    I'm not putting a hex on you or anything, just trying to do an end-run around Murphy's Law, that's all.

    Okay, so the way the light is built, it really is a pain to dig into it. I ask again, just for fits and giggles, could I order one without the glue and the potting, if I pinky-swear not to blame you if I drop it in water and it never works again? Or is the glue and silicone a structural component as well as a sealant?

    The glue and silicone are both structural components of the light.
    But if you want this light done custom, Please IM me for more details.

    Well, it is what it is then. Can't very well have a light that's falling apart all the time. If I had my way, though, I'd prefer tiny screws holding the faceplates on instead of glue.

    I haven't just been asking questions to be annoying; I'll let you know when I'm ready to order one.

    A little update




    I have some news for ya folks
    I decided to use double the magnets in the charging system
    on the lights and charging cradles to make them hold onto
    each other better. That means i had to order more magnets
    And they wont get to me till the end of next week. But the
    other good news is that i wont be gone much more than a
    week from monday I will pick right up on them as soon
    as i get back from the family matters in florida

    Since the lights will have double the magnets, They will hold
    onto other objects better. Like the sides of cars when you
    change a tire.. Or your fridge

    I appreciate the patience from you all, And will be getting these
    little lights out the following week for sure!!!!!

    With double the magnets I would have thought you would only have got 1/2 of them out

    They need some finishing work on the body,
    But you get the idea meethinks.
    They are just a tad thicker than the current
    taglights as you can see. These will be offered
    for sale soon too! I'am thinking around 250$
    with the same options as the current taglights.
    Anyone interested, Shoot me a PM

    This is a pre-pay sale.

    Sabrewolf, I had posted in the original thread when these were still in the proto/ design stages expressing interest, and have just returned to CPF after a shameful 3 month absence and found this thread with the help of a few other members.

    Anyway, I still want one of these if that's ok! Give me a day or two to look over the options and so on in your first few posts and I will let ya know what I'm after!

    Great job by the way, these look awesome

    Hey Sabrewolf, can I order one that's put together with LEDs I supply you with? I can send spares in case something goes horribly wrong with one (or more) of them.

    Are the emitters run at 100mA each, or somewhere in that vicinity?
