    what was your first led light

    Arc AAA premium (a couple of lumens more from its 5mm led) Opalec dropin for mini mag. 3 x 5mm leds, but! Flat regulated runtime for 10 hours on 2 alk AAs! And! A 3mm red led to tell you when it was no longer in that regulation period. I think it was 12 lumens, something like that...

    Streamlight Polytac X: Now with pics for Modernflame and Chauncey Gardiner

    Re: Streamlight Polytac X I got this light in safety yellow with the usb 18650. I agree that Streamlight did a nice job on this. It feels super solid. Lots of good design features. The tint on mine is more towards the neutral side and the beam is smooth. Makes an ideal glovebox light; 123s in...

    Streamlight Polytac for Xmas

    The polytac makes a good glove box light; plastic for holding in winter with bare hands, lithium primaries for fuel.

    What is the consensus here regarding Streamlight in general and the Protac 2L-X in

    Great post, mono. I like Streamlight a lot. Selected models, but that’s the way I am with all manufacturers. I never like every light in the catalog. Streamlight makes good, reasonably straightforward, tool-level tough lights. If I was talking to a working professional who was looking for a...

    Maglite ML150LR Closer To Release

    Has anyone purchased this light recently? I'm still quite curious about the runtime chart myself. Mag has made a note that it has heavily heat sinked this light vs previous lights. My curiosity is high as I've always had a soft spot for the traditional old school Magcharger. The MC60 was the...

    That's cool. Was it hard to do? Is the light on all the time?

    I agree. For my dollar, Mag is the best alkaline batteries design in retail.

    Streamlight new Protac HL4 and Super Siege

    I think SL is thinking the Super Siege is meant more for situation lighting where you know you'll want a solid, easily portable area light vs. emergency response for power outtages. Lighting up a scene as a first responder, etc. Recharging between actions makes it powerful tool for...

    Streamlight new Protac HL4 and Super Siege

    Streamlight is coming out with two new lights I find interesting. The Protac HL4 is a 2x18650 or 4x123 2200 lumen flashlight. The Super Siege is a beefed up 1100 lumen rechargeable 8800mah li ion lantern with usb charging for cell phones, glare guard, and waterproof compartment. See them on...

    New Maglite 3rd Generation 2D/3D - 524 + 625 lumens stock!

    If D nimh were used instead of the eneloops, what would the output curve look like I'm wondering? Would runtime at full brightness be longer, or does the circuit step down output over time regardless of battery condition? Thing is, I think 2xAA nimh will behave similarly to 2D alks under heavy...

    Warm White LED flash light?

    If you are trying to get the clearest most accurate vision possible with a flashlight, for painting, etc, consider also adding diffusion film to the lens. A hotspot up close can distort perception of color drastically; natural light doesn't have a hotspot. The hotspot also tends to be of a...

    New Maglite 3rd Generation 2D/3D - 524 + 625 lumens stock!

    Just saw that Brightguy shows the ML300LX 2D at 143 lumens vs the 130 of the 3D. Interesting.

    New Maglite 3rd Generation 2D/3D - 524 + 625 lumens stock!

    I get that. But isn't 625 x .22 = 138 lumens (3D) vs. 524 x .34 = 178 lumens? That is how I'm reading your great runtime charts. It seems that the 2D is brighter on low, albeit with far less runtime?
