    Harry Potter Taught Me About Flashlights

    Funny, the reason I like the McGizmo clip so much is you don't need a lanyard lol. They make much practical sense, but for me just another thing to fuss and fumble with. I need to tighten this clip though, it's loose even in my street pants. I'm sure the books are far better than the movies -...

    Harry Potter Taught Me About Flashlights

    I'm glad you guys liked my little story :) Sorry, no pics, but it looks fine. Mostly it looked like the front of my car, except with vegetable matter from the mower instead of bugs. The water that had to be flowing over it kept it pretty clean otherwise., except for the bottom where it was...

    Harry Potter Taught Me About Flashlights

    About 3 weeks ago now, I lost my favorite (and most expensive) light, a XR-27 PD. I paid $600 for it and was glad I did (eventually) because it turned out to suit my life better than any LED light I had. I've had a lot more stress than usual in my life for several months, and the loss of this...

    Sold/Expired Withdrawn

    Re: Regulated Mag85 in FM Spiral 2.3D HAIII bored body This is my #1 host for the 5761. I did surgery on a 2S3P 17670 holder to shorten it and use it in this host (which has been ano'd by Brian.) So there is some versatility there.

    Sold/Expired Custom 3" Maglite Head - 3" Carley Mod - Crenellated Bezel -HAIII [CLOSED] part 2

    Re: Custom 3" Maglite Head - 3" Carley Mod - Crenellated Bezel -HAIII [CLOSED] part 2 I'm just talking about swapping reflectors. Ideally what I'd want is another LS in the smaller ream.

    Sold/Expired Custom 3" Maglite Head - 3" Carley Mod - Crenellated Bezel -HAIII [CLOSED] part 2

    Re: Custom 3" Maglite Head - 3" Carley Mod - Crenellated Bezel -HAIII [CLOSED] part 2 Got the rest of my order a few days ago. Haven't had the time to play with them much, but a few observations. A bit of a fitment problem on a few - loose reflector - but a bit of tape at the base of the...

    AWR Hotdriver

    The fundamental flaw of the hotdriver as a marketable product to me was the timing. It was basically designed in a AA world, then we all started using big boy cells - various versions of A cells - and it had trouble, especially with inexperienced users. That's why I can't use my 64625 4/5A light...

    AWR Hotdriver

    14.4? If that's an unloaded measurement it's basically empty to me for a high current light. Maybe the low voltage cutoff is kicking in. Maybe the problem is in your charging technique or charger, or the pack itself (bad cell?) I use a 64625 on 11x4/5A with a hotdriver with no problems. Can't...

    Sold/Expired Mag D Incan Driver - Soft Start & Multi-Brightness

    This driver isn't regulated in the sense that you can set a specific voltage (like you could with the hotdriver) but it is in the sense that it has two lower levels that are a percentage of the maximum. So you still need to match your power supply to your bulb. There's a truly regulated version...

    Sold/Expired Mag D Incan Driver - Soft Start & Multi-Brightness

    Got mine a few days ago and tried it out tonight. Using it with 64610 bulb on 12S Eneloop. Using the medium posts for the Osram I found the hex screw a little awkward to get to with the wires pushed down in there but it works. Functionally just as advertised. I never thought a low beam on an...

    Re: Custom 3" Maglite Head - 3" Carley Mod - Crenellated Bezel -HAIII [CLOSED] part 2 I got my partial shipment yesterday. Three heads, one reflector. The reflector was for the 5761 and it works beautifully.

    AW's C Lithium Ions

    The WA1111 has already been recommended here, but I'd add the WA1274. It would be running basically at spec on 2C li-ion. I run one in a similar setup and like it quite a lot - it's not dim and yellow, more like "normal" instead of insanely bright and white. You get more runtime, less heat and...

    Re: Custom 3" Maglite Head - 3" Carley Mod - Crenellated Bezel -HAIII [CLOSED] part 2 Woo-Hoo! Partially shipped! Thanks for sticking with this David, the frustration must be overwhelming. I bet you can't wait to do a second run huh? Got it all planned out and everything :D
