    Default The best flashlight ever?

    Seems like a pretty bold claim. Thoughts?

    Well, that's...something. I should show him the pipe-lights CPF has made.

    Not quite sure about the claim, but I like the sustainability of it as long as he's using steel parts that would otherwise be thrown away.

    I wonder if that adapter will fit on my HDS so it can have a spot beam too.
    I used to be afraid of the dark. Now, the dark is afraid of me.

    If i dropped this, i would never find this thing in the woods.

    Edit: Is it just me, or is the switch off center?

    He bought a fully-assembled flashlight that required industrial equipment (and probably fossil fuels) to manufacture, then put it inside a stick. It would be more sustainable to leave the flashlight as-is and use the sticks to mulch a garden. There's nothing wrong with innovation, but let's not start attaching buzzwords just yet.

    Makes me think of AardvarkSagus' review of fire on a stick. Clearly he's copying his design.

    Yeah...when he started trying to sell me iron pipe as a handy way to screw the light in a base...he lost me.

    This is a hoax or inside joke...or a very sad day in the history of American progress.

    The above analysis regarding mulch is smack on point.

    Sorry, but you must be CPF'in© with us.

    Wow, now I've got wood...

    Oh, and about the link to that Sanyo lamp in post 15: It says there's an accelerometer inside to let the light switch between lamp mode and flashlight mode -- neat. However, it also states that it goes into flashlight mode if the lamp is turned 90 degrees or more... I guess you can only look at ceilings and walls in flashlight mode, nothing on the floor.
