    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    Now that we have more information about your work I would make an alternate suggestion, Fenix TK35 and several pairs of AW LiIon or IMR 18650's with the Pila IBC charger. With the charger get the 12v plug option. I have both the TK35 and V60C, V60C cost more and in general a very good light...

    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    Yes, there are concerns about using LiIon 18650's but try not to over think it. Right now I am using 18650's LiIon recycled from laptop batteries. I just use them lightly and charge weekly. The SWM-V60C charger has a low enough charge rate to even keep my old a tired cells in balance. Since...

    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    Well I had my first problem with my V60C. Something to watch out for, one of the four screws at the bottom holding the large ring contact was loose and almost fell out. Caught in time and fortunately I had the correct hex driver to tighten it with. Check the other three and they were tight...

    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    Tim, Interesting photo of the voltage reading. In general the anode looks deep enough not to worry about it. But for those who do I would go to the local hardware store to find a plug to cover the anode. Perhaps of even more concern what if the light was dropped in the water? IPX8 only...

    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    The 24VDC charger input is for aircraft. Many aircraft power systems are 24VDC. Remember travel inverters have 12/24vdc input, check the power adapter and see if the back end unplugs for the 24VDC plane adapter. Great job with the review!!! =D~~ Kilted

    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    From a safety point of view yes. If there were a blocking diode then the snap on tail cover with usb charger port would not work. Any one care to take on the task of designing the V60C USB charger port? Remember you are stepping down 12DC to 5VDC and a linear regulator may not be the best...

    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    Re: Sunwayman V60C (review in progress... but now w/runtime, beamshots, pics ) OK, question; I made the dumb assumption all along that there is a blocking diode in the flashlight tail contact assembly. This is what I would do and it never occurred to me until now that there may not be one...

    Sunwayman V60C & Charging Base review (runtime, beamshots, pics )

    Re: Sunwayman V60C (review in progress... but now w/runtime, beamshots, pics ) It seems to me a cap or a rubber plug to cover the charging port on the tail of the flashlight would work if you are in a hostile climate might help. Excellent review I've been waiting on this for awhile. =D~~Kilted

    Fenix TK35 (XM-L, 2x18650/4xCR123A) Review: RUNTIMES, BEAMSHOTS, DETAILED COMPARISONS

    I have had my TK35 for a few weeks now. Last week I took it into work as I was going to be working in a computer room buried in racks, under floors etc. I did my part and was sitting down working on a computer problem and my TK35 kept on getting borrowed. With the included holster the TK35...
