    Rayovac rechagable at walmart

    Real easy to break the usb port on these. A neighbor went through 2 of them and after the second got a refund. Didnt get a chance to try opening one. A big FAIL! IMHO. I gave him a sofirn 21700 triple and an mc1 ant. Now he has a taste of decent lights and down the rabbit hole! We often swap...

    Led usb emergency bulb from dead bulb.

    A neighbor and I made up 12 for emergency kits. He found a bunch of NOS 20' usb printer cables. I am sure thats out of usb spec but as usual adjust resistor value to hit current target. And lots of the cheap led bulbs die as often as incans so getting the word out to save them gets you plenty...

    Will we produce enough energy again where incans will come back in style?

    What happened to that ultra efficient incan that was in a lab a few years back? Likely no funding to develope it further due to low profit potential

    1950's Tom Thumb lights

    How well does a #112 do on a li primary? Might be a mild bump up if the bulb life is reasonable.
