    Best refrigerator?

    As I still check Sub_Umbra's threads on disaster preparedness, I hope you all will forgive a bit of thread necromancy by me providing an update to this advice. There are a number of additional options for performing the freezer to fridge conversion these days (as there is some popularity for...

    Tactical EDC with lotsa lumens

    Still, thank you--I wasn't seeing it when I was doing searches myself. How has it been for you as far as EDC (if you've used it for that)?

    Tactical EDC with lotsa lumens

    This looks like it should be about perfect for me! That's probably both the best and fastest answer I've gotten for a recommendation question. Thank you!!

    Tactical EDC with lotsa lumens

    Looking for a powerful EDC (600 lumens minimum, the more the merrier, mostly throw-based; high candela desired) that I can pocket carry (so 6" max, ideally under 5") under $150, ideally under $100. Any kind of battery is fine. Will be using this in conjunction with a carry handgun for training...

    Two warm/NW lanterns - available in USA

    Bushnell is claiming 2500 hours on ultra-low for that lantern--just how few lumens do they have it set at?! (Of course, they don't list any lumen rating but their max.)

    New: high quality, warm tinted lantern!

    Probably worth me pointing out that the price listed for them at Bare Bones Living is now $50.

    Streamlight Siege Review --- Now in neutral white! (September 2014)

    Fantastic review, Martin, thank you very much for the time you put into it, I am finding it to be a huge help. And the hack is just NICE.

    Maximizing Runtime+Brightness Among Multiple Lights

    If I have multiple copies of the same light that has multiple modes of brightness, how do I best maximize their runtime and provided brightness: in series, or in sequence? To clarify by example: Assume we have 3 Streamlight Siege lanterns. Each runs off of 3 D batteries, and its manufacturer...

    Fenix E12, ThruNite T10 Alternates

    I've heard about QC/breaking issues with these from other sites though. Apparently a lot of people's haven't lasted more than 2-3 months.

    1xAA EDC - Budget Battery Camel

    My EDC, a Fenix E12, has been missing and since a couple weeks of looking hasn't turned it up, it's time for a replacement. Since this isn't the first light that's gone walkabout on my watch (fortunately the other one was just an E01), I don't want to spend more than $30 for one that might also...

    EDC for use with concealed pistol

    Looking for a flashlight to use in conjunction with a concealed-carry pistol, in my off hand. I intend to EDC the light along with a Fenix E12, using the E12 for general lighting and this one for bumps in the night or needing light while out at night. A primary concern is having a stress-proof...

    Power outage headlamp (long-lasting, low lumens)

    I don't know the first thing about battery hacking. Not sure how either the D25A or the N219 would fit in a headband with their length and forward-facing lenses. Thanks for the heads-up regarding low-level claims and the HL05 in particular. That's really a problem for me. So is the Ion's odd...

    New: Fenix HL05, headlamp feeded by 2 CR2032 batteries

    Sounds legit. I've not begun walking the path of modding yet myself, so interface ends up being one of my biggest factors in light selection.

    Power outage headlamp (long-lasting, low lumens)

    I am looking for a headlamp for use in a storm/power outage kit. One of my biggest considerations is having superb battery life in event of a prolonged outage. As this isn't intended to get much use outside of the power being out (and thus, minimal ambient light to ruin night vision), a high...

    New: Fenix HL05, headlamp feeded by 2 CR2032 batteries

    I though this was going to be perfect at first glance as a light to keep stashed for a power outage. It has all the modes you really need for that--when the ambient light everywhere is gone, the moonlight modes really come into their own, and long battery life is king. It's a headlamp which is...
