    The reason we carry big lights

    Earlier tonight, I was doing live sound reinforcement for a small acappella concert - and as usual, I brought all my gadgets with me, including my flashlights. I mounted a Quark 123^2 with Prism diffuser on low above the sound board so that I could see when the lights were turned off...

    Knife rec - under 2.5"

    So, I don't usually come to the knife forum, but I thought I'd try and ask here and see if anyone can help :) Ive been relatively happy with my Benchmade 556 Mini Griptilian Spyderco LadyBug H1, but I realized that both of them are a bit lacking in some of the tasks I want to do. 1) Im in...

    FM CL1909 bulbs / JC5607

    Hi all, I really love my Mag2D/1909 conversion - it's given me lots of "wows" whenever I take it hiking or use it for extra lighting in photos - people just can't imagine a flashlight giving out more light than their car headlamps or their house lights! But, I've been a bit concerned because I...

    Flashlight + Paracord = "Headlamp" (somewhat)

    Recently, I was wondering how to EDC a headlamp without having to carry around the relatively more bulky headlamp straps, and so I wondered - why not just use some paracord? Obviously, it's not the best solution - I wouldn't use it in a critical situation unless I had NO other options, and I'm...

    [email protected]/09 build & some questions

    Hi guys, I recently acquired a Mag2D, and decided to build a Mag85 (later to be upgraded to a Mag09 with the FM1909 bulb). I built it using a Kiu socket, KD V3 SMO aluminum (15mm) reflector, and borofloat lens (still on the way). Currently being powered by 3xIMR18500 in a PVC pipe, later to...

    Budget hobby charger needed asap

    Hi all, I have 4 chargers, all Ultrafire, WF-139, and 3x WF-138, and only one of them is working properly. Only one of the WF-138 is working properly, and all the rest will not properly charge anymore - they'll stop charging at 4.08V, and seem to charge REALLY slowly. (Only go from 3.92V to...

    Flashlight BURNED! What did I do wrong? (Seraph SP-9, D26/TL-3, 2xIMR18500)

    Hi guys, I'm not sure if this should be in the general forum, battery forum, or incan forum. So JUST 2 hours ago I opened up my package with brand new AW IMR18500 Lithium Ion batteries, and couldn't resist doing beamshots. So I was out doing beamshots, and I decided to change from the LF IMR-9...

    Any guide to Bi-pin bulbs? (Bulb type, base type)

    Hi all, I really don't know whether this has been discussed before, but I feel that information on this topic would have helped me and prevented me from making some costly mistakes a while back when trying to buy bulbs/sockets/reflectors. I have done searches (both CPF google as well as the...

    Story: Quark gets its first real tactical situation usage, it was buggy

    I had actually gone to bed, but after this happened, I thought I'd post. I turned off my bedroom light, and lay down in bed as usual. Then, just for fun, I lit up my Quark AA Tactical in moonlight (I do it often enough, just because.) and shone around my room. Then, on my wall, a couple of feet...

    Suggestion for incan pocket rocket - **Got Seraph SP-6/IMR-9+D26-G4+WA1111**

    Hi guys, Up until now, I have been an LED person up until now, but I've always been curious on how incans perform, and I've never had a proper one (other than those cheapo 2aa/3D ones). So, I've been looking for a decent incan. Since I always carry LED flashlights with me (Liteflux LF2XT...
