    What was the last LED light you purchased and why?

    What did you use your flashlight for today?

    my wife lost a sewing needle and asked for help finding it(in a non painful way), so out came the newest addition to the collection, an astrolux EAO1S 4-xhp 50.2 6500k cw and there is your needle... now i just need to find good batteries to keep the light happy.

    Anduril Ramp Config

    i picked up an astrolux mf01 mini. seems to be a solid, well built light. don't look into it and hit turbo... i'm still trying to figure everything out. so far i'm very pleased with it. not sure how the neighbors like it.

    What was the last LED light you purchased and why?

    just picked up a nitecore br25 bike light with a little different reflector to help keep the light on the ground and not up in someone's eyes. have not tried it out yet on the bike. i did walk it around a little and it appeared to work as described.

    New Product - Nitecore BR25 1400 lumen Rechargeable Bike Light

    FYI - i tried to use the"cppf15off" code, but it did not work for me. i contacted them and they said to use "15off" and that worked for me.

    another alky leak issue

    thank you for your idea about leaking further into the head/driver area. i tried a quick check with some needle nose to look further, but i could not make any headway as to a quick opening. i might check with fenix if there is an easy, non experienced action i could take without damaging it further.
