    Duracell 3 pak, 300 lumen 4aaa @ Costco, deal or not?

    I recommend not buying any of these types of discount lights. The switch does not seem to work properly or reliably. My dad has a dozen of these that don't work, he says he needs to fix the switch or they need new batteries. What's the point in having these lights around that don't work.

    Christmas Present 1x18650 throwy light, semi-bulk buy, $30+ ea.?

    It is not what you are asking about but a good giftable thrower for friends and family is the Nitecore EA41 2015. You might be able to assume some people already have rechargeable NiMHs from the grocery store and a charger they use. The EA41 2014 is on clearance now.

    Nitecore Tube

    Re: Nitecore TUBE - a brief overview. Thanks I like Banggood. My last light from them showed up in just 10 days. I didn't order the $5 Tube because of the shipping cost. You have to have $20 order to get the free tracking. Edit: This is a 2 day flash sale.

    DQG AA, Gen 2?

    Re: DQG AA, clicky? You can always email George who makes DQG lights. I sent some questions to his Gmail account and he answered right back. He seems like a very nice guy. His email is at the bottom of his webpage. The webpage is clearly not up to date. This light is DQG AA version II. The...

    Japanese "Survival" Flashlight

    I have seen several different types of crank flashlights at local stores. I got the Energizer Crank light that is sold in Walmart and Home Depot.

    Nitecore Tube

    It hits 45 lumens which is brighter than any keyfob light I've seen. Built-in microUSB rechargeable I have not seen before either. There is another keychain light, the Inova Microlight STS. It hits 16 lumens, has variable output, and is $12 available at local hardware stores. I thought the Tube...

    DQG xp-g2 R51A mini AAA light

    It appears that Banggood has incorrectly labeled this as a DQG. CNQG and AliExpress both do not have this model listed as a DQG. They list it as the "Mini AAA". So there should be no "Warning, not real DQG" needed for their listings. If Banggood removes the DQG from their listing, everything...

    Re: $11 single AA/14500 XPG R5 450 lumen flashlight ??? No. "Max. 450 Lumen with Li-ion (3.7V)" * And I was comparing bananas, for scale.

    Twisty switch - I actually like it + DQG tiny 18650 review

    Why is there a flat part on these brass AA and 18650 lights? Is it a by-product of the machining process? Ima guess nobody knows probably.

    Twisty switch - I actually like it + DQG tiny 18650 review

    I just got the "Mini AAA" stainless steel tail clicky. It is the cool white and the tint looks pure white. The levels are 7/70/140 lumen. On a AAA I consider that Lo/Hi/Turbo. Turbo will drain the AAA cell very fast. The stainless steel is absolutely flawless detail, no blemishes. Reverse tail...

    Re: $11 single AA/14500 XPG R5 450 lumen flashlight ??? The Jetbeam BC10 XPG does 500+ lumen. Selfbuilt reviewed it back in March 2011. Mine still works great after 3 years, keep it in the car dash.

    $11 single AA/14500 XPG R5 450 lumen flashlight ??? - review link added

    Re: $11 single AA/14500 XPG R5 450 lumen flashlight ??? My experience with budget lights is they don't work right most of the time. It's frustrating having a light in your hand that doesn't make light when you need it. Then you wish you had gotten a better brand that works when you need it to...
