    Surefire Hellfire

    I went through all 28 pages of the hellfire thread and could only find a pic.... would be interested if anyone has ever changed the bulb/balast themselves? it does look like what you said with the d1s?

    2C FM11 & 3C FM85 Ready To Ship

    FM, in the 3xC version how well will some of the avaliable 12v G4 bi pin bulbs work? maybe not the 12v long life as you can over drive these to 15v+ but the 100/ 50 hour versions.... its the bulb situation (no 1185 ect ect) that puts me off these amazing looking lights

    Can you get replacement lamps and balasts for These? I have seen some at a good price but don't want to get stuck with an expensive ornament! I did try to find some threads but nothing directly addressing this???

    I still have a long role of magnesium tape that's fun to light... I wonder how many lumens you get doing it 😉 when I worked on a firebase in Afghanistan (For the US DOD, I am English) they used to fire flares out of those howitzers! they would light up a whole valley from pitch black to "read a...

    Surefire 3P

    Cool, if you want a cheap lumen fix you can get a 3.7v lamp from kai. com for about $4 . might be nice just to keep it stock, you still see 3v lamps on ebay....

Oh, I got the battery's that had pre spotwelded...
