    Faint OK... YA'LL's Fault!

    one day, i looked at a "spotlight" i saw on AVP..... that led me to CPF.... there i found that the spot light i was looking at was +$2000.... so.... i lurked a bit... bought the stanley, and got lucky.... it worked... and still works...... then i saw LEDs... HIGH POWER LEDs. and acquired some nice Rockys from Sams Club.... and while at it...my son loved my stanley HID so much i bought him the 520lm LED for xmas..... and THEN.............................................. ....
    i decided to start my own.... The HAND-SUN HID... and it's a work of art if i don't say so myself..... i put alot of research into it... and it does WAY better then ever expected!................. (my wife is now LIVID at all the damn HID's around the house, so PLEASE BUY ONE and SAVE MY LIFE!!!)
    .................. and here.... at the final end..... (and maybe the end of my life)..... i bought a Maxabeam.
    yes..
    i did...
    i can't afford it..
    (unless peeps buy)
    but i HAD to have one!!!!!!

    it's a GEN II...
    with a well cared for Nicad pack...
    and low hrs...
    best i could/not afford....
    got it for $500 on ebay...
    light, batt, charger.

    .....
    i have a MAXABEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    yeah i know... all'yall have better, newer, and prob cheaper....
    but i have my 1st SA spotlight! and it's a respected light!
    it may have cost me my soul.... (and marriage) but i have 1! and i am proud!


    so.... at this point.... if anyone has any advice or ..... well (anything cheap) that will benefit my "new" MB Gen II light... i welcome them!!!! i'd LOVE to have a Collmanatining lens and i'd KILL for a UV lens!!!!
    ..... and needless to say (again) PLEASE BUY/SPREAD WORD of my Hand-Sun spotlights so i can fund my MB!!!!! lmao


    (yes i know... bad juju to promote my sales, but i HAVE to do something! :/ )

    FYI, modified HID usually doesn't sell well on CPF due to smaller amount of people into HID spotlights vs. led flashlights.

    You may want to try put it on ebay, you may get a few bucks less but you'll get faster cash flow, which will help to make your hobby sustainable...

    Not trying to drag you in deeper, but stock Gen II MB only does 2-3 million cps...

    With a Ushio UXL-75XE in parker VH adapters it can easily double that - mine (with SLA battery) did 7.2million measured at 165 metres

    Congrats on the new light, the Maxabeam is one of those lights that makes you giggle when you fire it up
    I believe the current models are still the worlds furthest throwing commercially available handheld light (though i could be wrong)
