    Lumens Factory E-series bodies

    I celebrate your incan E choice. Some LED comes into the same league as incan, but IMO, is not in the same ballpark, not yet, perhaps not ever, and the only compelling LED choices I see for E is what I would term custom work from Tana, Malkoff or Oveready; worthy product, but it is an...

    Coronavirus - II

    I think this may help understanding why modern vaccines can not infect the vaccinated with the very virus they aim to prevent. chillim already seems to have covered why the polio vaccine is different, that in aggressive attempts to eradicate polio globally, many in Third World counties require a...

    Seeking the best 18650 batteries available on Amazon US store

    I may be seeing things, but seems to be a belief not strictly true that the best cells have protection circuits, or that with a protection circuit one is safer, glazing over the fact that protection circuits are only necessary on ICR cells (LiCo or LiCoO2). When LiCo cells drop below 2.5V they...

    Lumens Factory E-series bodies

    Mark from Lumens Factory posts in this thread, so he'll know, and I vaguely remember reading something about it in a recent thread with a simple solution, something about a spring I believe. Point is, someone knows. I just looked, and searched, I can't find the thread or remember the details...

    single AA flashlight usa made?

    Good call, most of their products are made in Asia. Article is from 2014 and there is a quote saying that "the company is planning to move some production to the United States, possible [sic] to Oregon, within the next year or two." So it is possible some of their products are now manufactured...

    Update on Lithium chemistries

    If you say so, but personally, I have never seen cells labeled ICR, IMR, INR or IFR that were anything but LiCo, LiMn, LiNiMn, and LiFePO4 respectively. Except maybe one major label... KeepPower's IMR labeled cells I saw HKJ note they were hybrids, but that doesn't mean that they are not also...

    List of sub-CR2 size lights

    Hello 2015, when there were few enough tiny lights to list. Browsing Fasttech, I noticed Fenix has, or had at least, some 10180 lights, the Fenix UC02, in at least a few ano colors, and the UC02SS in stainless. Also seen at Fasttech in 10180: Blackwater Kite in a few ano colors and stainless...

    Coronavirus - II

    LOL They don't actually work all those hours. There is a book they go by with standard hours listed per job, which they use for billing labor, whether they work all those hours or not. You're probably aware, IOW, book says job takes 2 hours, but the mechanic gets it done in 45 minutes, still...

    Update on Lithium chemistries

    Unfortunately, the popular convention is already established, which is to use the abbreviations used on cells, ICR, IMR, INR, & LFP (or IFR), or the shorthand chemical formulas, respectively, LiCo, LiMn, LiNiMn (or LiNiMnCo), & LiFEPO4.

    The roadway maintenance thread

    On my way in and out, there is an interesting gulch and turn that somehow scares any passenger into thinking they'll hit the tree. I have not experienced it myself, and there is no such anything from the driver's seat. I am standing in the gulch, at the corner the passenger will complain, to...

    Coronavirus - II

    dragging me in... bykfixer, touchdown well made, got me thinking if you weren't, if the pandemic were a football game, the goal for the virus is our nose and eye ducts, the grid iron is everywhere, every surface, and the defensive plays are astounding and tremendously complicated and have to...

    Coronavirus - II

    I didn't want to post in this thread, then I did, and post was removed. Tempers seem high, and I don't want involved. But I have been following the thread for weeks, and I found your reference, and learned something. I just wanted to make a small point, but it may take a few cracks to make it...

    Protected 14500s- what do they fit? Constant Current regulation?

    Constant Current, and I assume among those, Direct Drive. I think there may be some confusion between a driver with current regulation (constant brightness) and a constant current driver. The two are not mutually exclusive, but one is not the other.
