    Streamlight Sidewinder Compact II Review

    Nine years later and still, quite possibly, the only AA capable headlamp out there with red (or green) color function. I have two of the Aviator model. I really hate AAA option, and not just that but triple AAA batteries required!

    A blast from the past: Whatever happened to your Fenix L1P?

    necropost: I was curious what the net might say about the L1P these days. I still have mine. I'm looking at it right now. Works great. Even after letting a regular alkaline leak inside of it and it having sat that way for who knows how many years lol. Inside it now is an Energizer lithium...

    Review: Streamlight Sidewinder Rescue (2xAA)

    2020 would like to point out :D that, yes, the double tap will make it flash. But then you hold the power button briefly and that puts it into true strobe mode.

    More durable, water resistant headlamp?

    I really like the Energizer 3-LED headlamp. Lightweight swivel head excellent white runtime and excellent red light runtime. But it's a bit fragile. Looking for something more durable and also water resistant that is otherwise just like the E-3-LED. Recommendations?

    Smallest headlamp?

    The SF is nice but it costs .............. well, you know. Given the goals for this request, the ones in the running so far are the Mammut S-Lite and the PT Scout and the Petzl e+lite, despite those two being button cell lights.

    Smallest headlamp?

    Well it seems one person was intent on raising the dead. Now that thread may follow the typical pattern of reading just the first few responses and readers shaking their heads in confusion as a result; "that ain't even close to small, WTH?" :rolleyes:

    Smallest headlamp?

    single AAA power supply preferred but the Petzl E+Lite could also be an option. Actual requirements: - LO mode allowing for light in the 20-30s of hours - At least IPX4 water resistance rating - uber packable. Like if it were to take the form factor of a midsize swiss army knife that would...

    New Rayovac LED industrial lights at Home Depot

    they had these at the entrance to Home Depot and I couldn't resist when I saw the power ratings: 100/15hr, 18/35hr and on AA batteries to boot! Pretty smooth light. About 15% larger than a Maglight 2AA then with the rubber overmolds it becomes about 25% larger overall in volume.

    Orange Surefire G2

    Tan Ok, I picked up the patient yesterday. Still deciding on the operation lol. I've had a few G2s so I learned how to take one apart fully except that the first one had the tail switch just slide out. Apparently they're glued in now. Anyway I have one of those watch tools that can unscrew...

    Small form factor that will do 1 lumen or less forever and ever (amen)

    Something that will fit in a pen loop even if just relatively well. Right now I'm using the rayovac led pen (aaa) and that's about as thick as will work in the kneeboard. I've seen the Quarks have a 0.2 lum mode with a wide spill, both factors are great for cockpit usage. But their site...

    Has anyone come up with a method to waterproof a Surefire G2?

    and by waterproof I mean 3m or less type of thing (I figure that's good for a driving rain). Ironically screwing down the tailcap will seal it up but of course that means constant-on, eliminating the momentary function (and of course eliminating any storage option)

    Needed lumens for reading.

    this is perfect for your situation (I have one). Get 2-3 at that price as backups that you can carry right on you. I found it at Walmart. Rayovac BRSLEDPEN-B Brilliant Solutions LED Pen Light Please read the banner at the top of the page about external links - Norm Well crap, that ruins...
