    I just realized my best lights are about 10 YEARS old!!

    Yes, with new neutral, warm and high CRI emitters that is true. But the tint of the cool white models of for example Fenix TK10 and TK30 were creamy white and better than many of the bluish tints of successors with higher efficiency.

    I just realized my best lights are about 10 YEARS old!!

    I still have a few great lights from 10 years ago, and even 12-13 years ago. L1D was my first Fenix but I sold it or gave away it long time ago. But I still have TK10, TK20 and TK30(the newly released TK30 is a totally different light and not a successor). I liked the simple UI with low and...

    Dog walking and coyotes

    Ok, I understand. A coyote is like a midsized dog, or slightly larger than a fox, right? So an adult human can usually protect himself against one coyote. But against a pack it will be more difficult. Even worse for children. And even a small canine can crush the finger with its bite so I...

    Dog walking and coyotes

    I am curious here: is the problem with coyotes mainly related to that they consider your dog as a meal or are they even threatening against humans?

    17670 batteries ? Where they go?

    What I wonder is if the stated capacity of other cells is also valid for 4,35V? Are all unprotected Li-Ion cells possible to charge to 4,35V?

    17670 batteries ? Where they go?

    Here I wonder: if 2500mAh Keeppower 16650 is falsely advertised of 2500mAh when that's valid without the protection at 4,35V, is it the same for 2100mAh model?

    Dog walking and coyotes

    I think it's correct that light does not scare away animals. So many examples of wild animals illuminated with bright spotlights and they may be a bit distracted, but likely not frightened. Because in the nature no animals(at least not mammals) have inbuildt light sources so they don't connect...

    Lumens Factory E-series bodies

    But that is with alkalines, right? It is possible to manufacturer an incandescent bulb with higher current draw at 1,2-1,5V and get the same brightness or higher with a single NiMh or lithium cell, or?

    If the 3V bulb is rated for 40lm couldn't a 1,2V bulb be rated for 10-15lm?

    interesting read, Deep red light reboots aging retinas like "recharging a battery"

    Re: interesting read, Deep red light reboots aging retinas like "recharging a battery By the way: the question is whether it requires to stare right into the beam, or is it enough to shine the light into a white wall and look at the wall?

    1D Flashlight Kit by Maratac

    Maratac 1C and 1D: do I need these? No. Do I want them? Yes... These remind of common 4AA and single 26650 lights. I like the stable tailstanding of this design. At low mode they can be used many hours for extra indoors lighting, or for camping.

    What are the reasons for carrying low-lumen lights?

    I think the same and have and like single mode lights in different brightnesses. But that is also the reason I like Thrunite/Wowtac and Acebeam. Some other brands have memory on all modes. This means next time you turn it on, if you don't remember what level you used last time(or accidently...
