    12V battery pack; low voltage; making knocking/ticking noises: Dangerous?

    Hey guys, I've got a Motomaster Eliminator battery booster/power pack. Kind of looks like this: http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/4/Auto/SolarPortablePower/PowerPacks/PRD~0112014P/Motomaster+Eliminator+800A+Powerbox.jsp?locale=en- except I can't recall how many Amps it is, and it's an...

    Does Peak LED Solutions still take orders through their own site?

    Bullzeyebill, thanks for moving this thread; I realized after posting that General was probably the wrong forum for it. Hey guys, Thanks. Looks like I'm either in for a long wait, or for another light from someone else. Hopefully standard orders for non-cool tints will be available again...

    Does Peak LED Solutions still take orders through their own site?

    Hi all, I was wanting to grab an El Capitan AA Neutral today from Peak LED Solutions; it doesn't look like their site's been updated for some time and I couldn't reach them. Most of their distributors seem only to carry the Cool tints of this light. Anyone try ordering from them (Peak)...

    Dereelight Javelin - Tailcap conductivity issue?

    Hey guys, I just got a Dereelight Javelin. I'm running my Malkoff M30WF in it. I'm using three L91 AA batteries. I had to wrap the Malkoff in a lot of foil to get good contact in the head. I notice that when I'm using the AA extender to allow for a third battery, the momentary on...

    Thanks again; that Brinkman looks pretty fine for what it is; will also have another look at the LiteFlux. Cheers!

    Thank you, carrot. Is there a thread around that I've not seen which goes into more detail about this? Cheers

    Seeking AA/AAA light for friend; specific needs listed

    Looks good, too. I'm a bit out of touch with tints and what's what these days. Is the R2 warm, or neutral? Cheers

    Seeking AA/AAA light for friend; specific needs listed

    Wow, wow, wow; lots more choices than I anticipated. I will be reviewing all these and sharing what I find with my friend. Thanks so much, everyone. Oh - good point about the low lumens and Malkoff style flood! Thanks you. Yeah, the warm (or neutral? One of the two) Quarks have caught my eye...

    Seeking AA/AAA light for friend; specific needs listed

    Hi everyone, A friend of mine has become fed up with the bulky, weak flashlights she keeps buying and told me that she wants something brighter, smaller and more reliable. She's not after 200 lumens or anything, and so likes the idea of a single AA or AAA light for her primary user. She's...

    Your crappiest flashlight

    Just about every 6V Canadian Tire one that's ever been in this house (with one exception of a yellow lantern style one; 2 no name Maglight imitations; and these old, awful incan models, name unknown, that had electrical prongs to plug into a wall outlet to recharge. I really got tired of there...

    M30WF plus 3 Lith. AAAs - safe?

    Hey everyone, I'd like to try my Malkoff M30WF dropin in the Solarforce L2i (which takes three AAAs). Just wondering if anyone has any caution or experience warranting not trying three Energizer Lithium AAAs to do so. Even if they're 1.7 or 1.8 V out of the box, they still wouldn't exceed...

    The M30WF - thoughts and thanks

    Hello CPF, This isn't a full blown review of the M30WF, but rather a few thoughts. I received the drop-in from Gene Malkoff promptly; only one or two days to reach Canada. Speedy service! I've been using it in a Solarforce "9P" (with extension tubes), and 3 AA batteries. In my case, I had...

    Will any dropins fit in the Fenix TK40?

    I'm dreamin'...I'd need someone to mod it for me; but heck, if I can ever afford someone willing and able to desecrate such a good light to appease my whims, I will certainly post the results. Maybe I should stick to more conventional ideas for now. :)

    Will any dropins fit in the Fenix TK40?

    I knew I would catch some mild flack for this post, but c'mon guys - I was only asking. People do things to lights all the time. Basically, when I said "great voltage" or "great format", I meant that I like AAs. No, that many AAs isn't delivering the kind of voltage you could get from lithiums...

    Will any dropins fit in the Fenix TK40?

    Touche. ;) Had I an extra five hundred bucks or so...and if it ran on something other than multiple lithiums...

    Double and Triple Barrel Flashlights?

    Is there such a thing, then, as a 3AA host which can take P60 dropins? (Again, using a battery holder, or a configuration that allows the light to be shorter and fatter, rather than the length of three AAs all lined up).

    Will any dropins fit in the Fenix TK40?

    I know, it's already a serious light to begin with; I was just thinking of the great voltage provided by 8 of the most accessible battery format, driving something else; frankly, with a body like that, I'd love to be able to stick something strictly single mode, warm tint, and bright as hell in...

    Will any dropins fit in the Fenix TK40?

    I've tried a search, but couldn't find an answer to this. Is anyone aware of dropins that fit, or tried sticking different emitters in the TK40? Cheers

    Double and Triple Barrel Flashlights?

    Yes, dagnabbit, yes! I was just about to ask the same thing, then found this thread. That would be such an awesome format.
