It's so nice to have the mini warm white LED's from favorlight available. And now I own four... Well, three because mom talked me out of one to use with the horses at the barn. I can't even go back to using my rayovac sportsman extreme after looking at the light that's so close to an incan that emits from the favourlights.
Keep hoping for the Gentos to show up on our shelves but that seems like it's never gonna happen. I would def. try to mod a rayovac, but just dont feel comfortable with doing it, I'm afarid i'd screw up a lantern and an emitter. Maybe if someone posted a very detailed step by step I'd give it a go, including soldering 101. HEHEHEEHEHE.
Today, I threw my coleman micropackers in the trash (all 9 of them). I asked some of my friends if they wanted them, and they all more or less said "No, but if you want to get rid of your other little ones (The Favorlights), I'll take those."
My collection is getting STALE! LOL I broke down and bought a zebralight clicky warm white (okay color rendition but a smidge green) and i like it, but it's just not as pleasing as the little favorlights. Anyone got any links to a nice new lantern in the warm white variety? Heck, EVEN neutral white, as long as it's not that freakin ugly cold blue, that really isnt that helpful in real world long term usage (1 week camping). --
Anyway, as always, I appreciate everyone here and all the great ideas and info you bring as lantern and flashlight collectors. Hope to hear some new news from you guys. Mike
P.S. Is anyone in Albuquerque that would like to HAVE a brunton polaris (Pleasing light my ****! hahahahaha NOT) 3c cell lantern? I just dont want it anymore. I really cant stand the light output after using my favorlights but figure someone might want it for their collection. I dont really want to go through the trouble of shipping it so anyone in town that would like it dropped off, just let me know. If i dont hear from anyone in a short bit, I'm gonna trash it, it really has become a paperweight.
I'm also thinking of giving away my coleman 8d cell LED lanterns (2 qty) but may try to mod those because if i mess it up, who cares right! I'll let you know what i decide on those.
