    Rechargeable options for 16340 in multi cell applications

    So I have a couple of lights that use two 16340 size cells and have been using AW IMR cells because those were recommended at the time as the best chemistry for multi cell applications. AW's are no longer made and not many other options out there these days for IMR. Can I just use two quality...

    Hey guys, I have one of the original Draco's and my last o-ring bit the dust. Anyone have any suggestions for a replacement? I'm pretty sure these were custom made o-rings. Modamag doesn't seem to be around any more...

    Gdup question

    I'm thinking of getting a Gdup LE for my Aleph I and have a couple of questions. I've been reading different threads for an hour and am still confused. When switching brightness levels, do you have to actually "click" the light off and on or can you "tap" the momentary on and off to change...

    Lithium-polymer battery explosion

    Well I've been building a new electric RC plane and while I was installing the electronics, I accidently cut into a 11.1 volt 910mah Lithium Polymer battery and it instantly vented with flame. Similar to what happens in this video:

    Aleph Mule Pricing

    I was just looking at the new Aleph Mules on the Sandwich Shoppe website and noticed that if you were to buy a complete 1x123 Mule it would cost $219. But if you bought the complete head separately it would cost $119. Then if you bought a 1x123 Aleph power pack for $22 and a McTC tailcap for $35...

    Aleph light engine acting weird

    Hi guys, I recently purchased an Aleph 1 flashlight and as I was using it last night it went dead. Thinking it was just a dead battery, I put in a new 17650 and instead of it's usual bright beam, it was only putting out like five lumens. I tried putting primary 123's in there and it was the...

    Do AW's protected LI-ions have nipples?

    I've been researching for an hour and can't seem to find out if AW's PROTECTED cells come with nipples on the positive end? I know on the unprotected ones you have to use the little magnets but was hoping that the newer ones come standard with nipples in place. Anyone know? Thanks.

    Teflon Tape On Ti-PD Threads

    I recently aquired one of the new Ti Pd's in the last Don sale and ever since I have been trying to break in the threads. They are much better than when they were brand new but still pretty gritty feeling. I decided to clean the old dirty grease off and put some new Krytox on the threads...

    Back in January I lost my beloved Mclux III-PD and was not a happy camper. I have since replaced the PD with a new/used one and decided to take an extra precaution should I be so unlucky as to lose this one. I took a small piece of paper and wrote: "$50.00 reward if you return this flashlight"...

    Help with LE Identification

    I was hoping one of you McGizmo gurus could help me identify the LE or converter on a used Aleph II that I recently aquired. It came with a two battery tube but seems to also work fine with one battery and I just want to make sure it's OK to use both configurations. I've included a drawing of...

    Aleph II Question

    I just recieved in the mail a used Aleph II. I started playing with it and it seemed to work just fine. Then I took the head off and noticed that the light engine seemed a little loose and I found that the whole thing would unscrew from the head. Then I put it back together and screwed the LE...

    Aleph LE Question

    I have a question about Aleph light engines. I have been wanting to aquire an Aleph 1 flashlight and thought that I would be able to use either a one or two battery configuration interchangeably. But after doing some research it looks like the LE's are designed for one or the other but not both...

    How I EDC my flashlight

    I've always had a problem EDC'ing larger objects in my pockets because they would always lay in there sideways and feel uncomfortable and get in the way of everything else in there. So I decided to sew a little pocket into the front pockets of all my pants and shorts that didn't already have...

    McluxIII-PD battery dies unexpectantly

    I've had my McluxIII-PD for a few months now and I really love it. It's my go to light for everything, but i'm a little concerned with how the battery will die unexpectantly without any warning leaving me in the dark. It doesn't have any moon mode at all. One minute it's working fine then boom...

    Arc AAA in candle mode

    I've read that some people complain that the Arc AAA can't be used in candle mode. Well I think that i've found a solution to that. I remove the split ring, then flip the clip around and slide it down to the end and voila! candle mode.
