    Disaster Light for Emergency workers

    This would be my take on the situation as well. Nothing sucks like learning new equipment during an emergency. Especially if you have the muscle memory engraved in your brain. For your budget you could buy a lot a spare cells for the lights you have. Im actually surprised you don't already carry...

    Olight Hacked

    Im not sure if this is the right place to post this or not so Mods please move it if this is the wrong place. I just thought I would let everyone know that the Olight sites have been hacked by a scammer attempting to get your credit card info. It has been confirmed that Olight Canada's facebook...

    Olight Warrior Mini Stopped Working After Airplane Ride

    Only two thoughts come to mind, perhaps the presure effected the light somehow as you already suggested. Another thought is airport security may have done something to it if they checked it out?

    Think It's Covered?

    I've been running lithium in 2 of mine without any problems. The only reason the one in the photo above had duraleaks is because it was still on its original batteries.

    Think It's Covered?

    I was honest about what happened so the warranty rep got the full story. They know the plastic in this model is flawed so they had no problem exchanging it. They were probably happy to exchange it for a different model if it means I wont be replacing it every year. They only thing I dont like it...

    Think It's Covered?

    Well I went to pelican today and they admitted the photo-luminescent plastic is flawed so they offered to replace it. Because of the known flaw they allowed me to get a 3315 instead. Its not as bright or have multiple modes but at least the body should last this time.

    Think It's Covered?

    In all fairness I have a few of these lights and they all have cracking around the head. Its only the photo-luminescent versions though so it must be some sort of defect. Im sure most of my other lights would survive the fall no problem. I wish I could say "you should see the other guy" but it...

    Think It's Covered?

    It fell 3 stories onto the concrete sidewalk. I only found 2 out of 3 batteries. The driver and all circuitry was gone. Its like the battery springs shot it out somewhere. One of the Duraleaks had started to corrode so I wonder if the off gassing made the plastic more brittle. Pelican sure aint...

    Anyone Identify This 18650 Cell?

    That's disappointing. I was hoping they might at least be brand name cells re-wrapped. I guess Ill have to treat them like typical chinese crap and assume they are not protected. Thanks for the reply.

    Anyone Identify This 18650 Cell?

    Im hoping someone can give me some details on this cell. I was able to salvage 6 of them from my laptop today. The numbers dont really show anything useful on google. I'm thinking the capacity is 2000 mah. One site indicated a similar cell was protected but I'm not sure about these ones. The...

    Do not use Battlecord for rappelling. There is some sheath slippage when you apply fiction. In the photo I was lowering a 140# load off a 3rd story building using a munter hitch. You can see a noticeable bulging effect. If you were to use enough weight or a friction plate similar to an ATC it...

    Underwriters Standard UL 1576 for flashlights and lanterns?

    If you go on the UL site there is an option to use the free viewer to read it. It does require you to sign up but you can give false info on the site but you do need to verify the email address. Basically it...

    Challenge Week #4: Brick & Mortar Store-Bought Flashlights ONLY!!

    What if you handled the light in store but opted to buy online because it was much cheaper? I generally buy all my lights that way because we get charged 2 -3 times more locally unless its a pelican light.
