    Flashlight Story

    Well, although I enjoy the use and ownership of various flashlights, my parents feel otherwise. We were having a discussion on the matter earlier tonight when I brought up that if they don't want to carry a flashlight, at least there should be one within arm's reach of the toilet, preventing...

    Anyone know if these are protected? Does anyone know if these batteries are protected? It doesn't say either way on their web pages. Also, are they any good? Did anyone have any problems with these? Thanks. Stephen

    EDC for Mom

    Hi! My mom has a job that requires her to walk through isolated unlit areas. Therefore, I think she needs an EDC light. It needs to be powerful and have a way to quickly switch to the brightest mode. I am torn between the Fenix L1D and the Fenix P3D. The only thing that is stopping...

    Fenix L0D upgrade?

    Hi! I'm considering buying a Fenix L0D. Until five minutes ago, I was sure that I would want an L0D-CE. However, I noticed a few threads referencing a L0D with a new type of LED (Rebel 100). This apparently isn't for sale yet, but should I wait for the new bulb? What are the advantages and...

    Is this a good flashlight?

    Hi! I'm looking for a good flashlight for general/rough use, as well as some possible search and rescue work in the future. It therefore should be submersible. I've found this one by Lumaray, called the FL-12RX. As I am a noob, do you guys see anything negative about this light? I want to...
