    Protected/Unprotected and IMR cells

    I have always purchased protected cells (18650). I am in the process of getting a couple of 26650 based lights (one for my truck and one for my wives car). So, I have been battery shopping and have never been so confused. I have already posted a couple of questions and received some really great...

    26650 batteries

    It seems that the 26650 batteries are available with or without a button top. I am not sure which I need, or which would be more useful. I have been looking at EBL (buttonless, best deal) or the Odec (button tops). Would one be better than the other? FWIW, I am going to be using them in a...

    case for a Thrunite TN-40

    I am looking for a case for a Thrunite TN-40. I bought this light to carry in my boat for navigation at night. I would like to have some protection for the light, especially the front of it when it is being stored. I found a Flyye FY-PH-M006 that seems like it would fit and might be the best...

    Thrunite Tn42 or Tn40? Or other?

    TN40 it is (I think I want the one with the rechargeable battery pack). I have been searching for the TN40 in NW and I cannot seem to find it, but then again I don't shop that often for lights so I am probably overlooking several outlets. Can someone recommend a vendor with decent service and...

    Thrunite Tn42 or Tn40? Or other?

    I am looking (once again) for a light to carry in the boat. I fish on a lot of large lakes and being able to spot buoys, channels, markers, etc is important. But, equally as important is having enough flood to be able to spot deadheads or anything else in the water. Initially I was thinking...

    Light for boat

    Thanks for the info. I am on fresh water (boat is trailered to and from most days) so corrosion should not be a major issue. I too am looking for a light to find obstacles and marker buoys. The primary lake that I fish on is a bunch of bays connected by channels, some are very narrow and most...

    In Light rechargeable for the boat

    I spend a lot of time on the water and most evenings I find myself navigating back to the dock after dark. Last night was very dark and made navigation difficult (if not exciting). The body of water I often fish on is connected via a series of channels which can be difficult to locate at night...

    Headlamp for fishing, camping and hunting

    I need a new headlamp for my outdoor activities. The headlamp needs to have a red light for night fishing, and a decent throw to help with boat navigation at night. That being said I am leaning towards the NiteCore HC90. I like the variable output slider and it seems really bright at its...

    Trustfire, or is it an Ultrafire? return it? Upgrade it?

    I do a bit of soldering on circuit boards so I would guess that I am good enough for some mods. What I don't know is how to get started, nor what mods to look for. I would like to make this a brighter light with a lot more throw but have no idea what to change first and where to get the parts...
