    Possible Pennsylvania get together?

    I am interested in an overnight hike. I have a bunch of new equipment to evaluate: North Face tent, Camelback BFM pack, Katadyn water filter, and my home-made pepsi can stove. Plus I have some Mountain House freeze dried meals and some MREs that I want to taste test. Dave

    Anyone try these E-bay 1xAAA ARC'ish copies?

    Big Ed, What is your base of knowledge to make these broad generalizations? What flashlights do you own? What do you know about electronics? What country manufacturers the 5mm LEDs in your ARC flashlight? Your feelings and beliefs are your own, but don't attempt to pass them off as...

    Choosing a welding helmet

    Wow, there is auto-darkening on welding helmets? It has been a very long time since I was a welder... the lesson that I learned the hard way is that the standard lens for Arc welding (10 rating) is in no way sufficient to protect your eyes when Mig welding (need a 12 rated lens) for long...

    Best buy in tiny headlamps?

    IMHO, the best buy and best headlamp for the activities that you mention is the Photon Freedom light. It comes with a hatclip and necklace to hold the light. The hatclip can be clipped to your hat or clothing or just about anywhere and swiveled to direct the beam, and there are three small...

    Re: Head to Head! 26K vs Nichia chimo, Could you please test these two LEDs in a common real-world application. Some of us common people would like to read the results from a common application such as from a two CR2016 driven light. Thank you for time and effort undertaking these tests. Dave

    Head2Head! LCK26K/NichiaCS/MJLED/LCK65K/LoV35K

    Re: Head to Head! 26K vs Nichia Chimo, I am probably not understanding the logic of these tests, but given that the LCK26 has a max rating of 20mA and the Nichia has a max rating of 30mA. Is it really a fair head-to-head comparison when you are pushing the LCK26 at almost 3x its spec and...

    Advice? 190Lu R/O on a Hotlips driven at 1.5A?

    Wilkey, You will have to remove the emitter from the star if you want to mount it on the hotlips. I think that the sandwiche shoppe can modify a downboy to about 1.4 amps for you. The head,reflector/optic and switch will be a project in and of itself. As will be the attachment of those items...

    sylvania low beam bulb is not bright as HID ?

    The Sylvania SilverStars are not as bright as HID, but neither are the super bright PIAAs. But, both are close to the low end of HIDs color temp, with the PIAAs just a bit closer. The problem with the PIAA and other Hi-Intensity lights is their life. If you get a year out of the bulbs count...
