    Sea Elite 1500 question

    A fellow diver was at the LDS last night with this light - Since we're always looking for the best bang for the buck, it looks like an inexpensive upgrade to this light, which many of us have -...

    Plastic or aluminum body?

    I've been looking at possibly getting the DRIS 1000 lumen light. I tried my buddy's and it seemed very heavy compared to the plastic bodied ones I've tried. The last thing I want to do is drag more weight around. Is one better than the other for any reason(s)?

    Best bulb for a real old 5D

    I have a 5D maglite that I just resurrected. If my memory serves me, I bought it in the early 80s. It was beat inside and out, and I just cleaned it up, repainted it, and plan to keep it in my truck as a backup light, and a little bit of personal protection. It works fine, and the stock bulb...

    SCUBA cap for lithium glo-toob?

    Does anyone know if there is a SCUBA cap available for the lithium Glo-Toob? I purchased this because the description did not specify that it fit only certain models, and it does not fit the lithium model. I have not gotten a response from Glo-Toob...

    Stock dive light recommendations

    Not sure at this point, haven't even gotten certified. Just advance fact finding, as I am with all potential gear purchases. I have no problem spending to buy quality gear, as long as it is appropriate for my use. I guess I'll wait until I get certified and have more specifics to ask. Maybe...

    Stock dive light recommendations

    Going to be taking the OWD course in a couple weeks, which will allow me to buy new toys, so of course I had to come looking through CPF. From reading through here, it looks like most of you build/mod your own dive lights. What would be a good stock dive light for a beginner? I recently bought a...

    OMS K2 or Saint Minimus?

    I pulled the trigger on the Saint. The two things you guys mentioned, the adjustable light level and differences in beam are important. Also, Battery Junction had free batts and free shipping making the difference in price more palatable.

    OMS K2 or Saint Minimus?

    I've been in the market for an LED headlamp that uses 123As. I was just about to order the OMS K2 here when I got the email from Surefire today on the Saint Minimus. Now I'm not up to date on the technology...

    Can anyone recommend an A/C Nano charger?

    I recently purchased my first ipod, a 3rd generation Nano, and since I'll be traveling soon I thought about getting an A/C charger. There are so many knockoffs out there, and many pro and con reviews, I was wondering if anyone here could recommend a dependable and inexpensive one, and where to...

    Leatherman Skeletool

    REI now has the skeletool CX in stock. I just ordered one. I was able to use my member dividend and coupon, so I got it for a good price. I'll write up a review when it comes in.

    Palm questions

    Just picked up a Palm T/X and the user manual is non-existant for all practical purposes. Is there a quick cheat sheet anywhere with instructions like, "to load an excel spreadsheet, do this. to load a music file, do this, etc."?

    Yep, typo.

    Krill or Glo-toob?

    What makes one better than the other? I've seen good reviews on both. I was leaning toward the Krill due to AA batteries (didn't want to add A23 to my stash) but now I hear Glo-toob is supposed to be coming out with an A123 model.
