    What lubricant?

    Confused about lubricants I've been researching this for a while now, and my understanding is that nyogel is a good lube that will make my P2D's threads silky smooth and easy to turn. Will nyogel do this? If so, what specific type (I've seen multiple numbers after "nyogel") and where can I...

    Fenix Turbo Mode

    Hand warm. Less avg. kinetic energy/molecule to lose before able to freeze. jirik_cz: I would also check that there was a thermal insulator (maybe a piece of styrofoam between the flashlight and the metal test tube clamp in both trials.

    I Told You So moments....

    Whenever this one particular person I know touches my P2D Q5, "Don't look at it when you turn it on" "Okay" *Facial Enlightenment* :poof: "Told you so" Its invariably on turbo, too!

    Please recommend me a flashlight!

    You have been spared this time, but I have observed that resistance to flashlight purchases is inversely proportional to the amount of time spent on CPF. That said, :welcome: I would recommend a L2D if you can sacrifice the focusable beam. I find that it has a nice combination of flood and...

    My first Build...

    looks pretty awesome! Nice job! Teflon coating sounds like a good idea. Does it provide good grip on a flashlight? I don't have much experience with the material.

    Flashlight Story

    Believe it or not, I wasn't. It was a real blackout. The funny thing is, since I got into flashlights, we haven't had a single blackout until now. It only lasted about 5 minutes, unfortunately. Before it started, I had the pleasant 10 second "hurry and unplug the laptop and get out a...

    Judging light size from photo

    I have a hard time doing this, especially with Fenix and Surefire lights. I guess its just the pre-CPF days of C and D powered flashlights. CR123A's have roughly the same proportions as a C cell, so that just makes it worse.
