    Need a XM-L(or similar) 18650 light or drop in for Solarforce l2.

    Looks okay. But I kind of prefer a low setting for close up auto work or such, plus battery life obviously. I was thinking of trying to get a new driver and maybe the LED with star and trying a DIY type thing. But I'm not experienced with this type of DIY work. Probably not too complicated.

    Need a XM-L(or similar) 18650 light or drop in for Solarforce l2.

    Basically the thread title. I would use the light for backpacking, fishing, other. Must be able to use an 18650 battery. I already have a Solarforce L2 XR-E(?), works fine, glass is a bit scratched up. Just want something new, and also would prefer to have a light without the strobe and SOS...

    Best 18650 LED light for under $100.

    Is the XP-G led better then the XR-E R2?

    Best 18650 LED light for under $100.

    Main preference is that is is a well built light that uses one 18650 and is under $100. Would like it to have either a button on the tube section or on the back. Needs two settings at least, high and low. It would be a plus if it could use some other battery type like CR123, but not a...

    Made in Japan. Shamwow is made in Germany. Germans make good stuff.

    Has anyone tried or tested the new Energizer Rechargeables?

    AA's would be best for me. Says NH15 1.2v HR6 2300 mAH on the batteries. Energizer claims that you can charge these more times than their previous batteries and that it holds a charge longer, so I assume a lower self discharge? If that's all true of course. Doesn't say anything about...

    What are some good, cheap upgrads I can do to a Solarforce L2?

    I have a Solarforce L2 already. I have the Cree R2 in it. It's really good as it is, but modding it interests me. I'm pretty sure that extension from KD would work, it's a CM shorter than an 18650, but I think there's an extra space already in the flashlight. And your link doesn't work.

    What are some good, cheap upgrads I can do to a Solarforce L2?

    So..., just get that driver from KD to replace the stock driver, and use the same LED? Who sells cheap extensions for 2x18650? I probably should also get two better, protected 18650's. How about this one? http://kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=6304

    What are some good, cheap upgrads I can do to a Solarforce L2?

    Would I lose brightness if I used two rechargeable AA's? I've got plenty of them so that might be a good mod for me. "8.4v Pill = Just buy a 18650 extension for 2x18650" 8.4v pill? I don't know what a pill is... sorry about that.

    What are some good, cheap upgrads I can do to a Solarforce L2?

    That's pretty much what I'm wondering. If possible, I'd like a bit longer battery life with the same brightness. Maybe a new driver? I'm fine with the 5 modes, Hi-med-lo,strobe, SOS, but if there are better drivers on DX or somewhere that would be worth switching in I'd probably change it...

    are leds the most eficant means of light

    Pretty sure gas is still best for a lantern anyways. I don't know if lumens is anything worthy of a specification for a lantern, but Coleman has a propane one at Walllllmart that says 1546 lumens on it or something on it. EDIT: This one...

    are leds the most eficant means of light

    What. And as far as I am aware, any LED lantern I have seen will not produce as much light outwards as a gas coleman lantern. I would consider the sun the most efficient source of light for us. That's a big run on sentence by the way.

    Looking for a cheap light kit

    Honestly, I just saw another thread on here recently where another user talked about that light, and it seemed great for the price. I looked at Fenix lights, I might get one for myself anyways. Any of you know of the battery life to expect with that light at the setting of 300* lumens with a...

    Looking for a cheap light kit

    After looking at my budget restrictions and whatnot, I decided just to get him a prebuilt Solarforce instead. This one. http://www.solarforcestore.com/servlet/the-1029/18650-FLASHLIGHT/Detail Honestly, I think the whole DIY stuff interested me more than him, and if I order a battery and...
