    TK40 or wait?

    I say go for it!!! I got mine and even if it's bigger then then other or this or that, I think it's a great light for the fact it used batteries you can find just about anywhere in the world. It is also a tough light and great thrower.

    How Can I Test for Parasitic Drain?

    Keeping your light clean will avoid parasites. Rubbing alchool works well and helps keep the contacts clean also. Sorry I couldn't resist. Sounds like it's a simple enough way of doing this test. Thank you.

    *NEW* Fenix TA20 & TA21!!

    The TA20 seems to be a direct attack at the Olight M20 only it doesnt use the 18650's for those of you using those batts. The TA21 I agree with many of you on this it has a lot of modes and I truely question how many people will actually use all modes other then when they get the light the...

    My Extreme Fenix TK40 Torture Test.

    Hey well I just got mine in today and I must say it's nice. Thanks for that test I agree with many on CPF that said it had a thin metal feel about it but guess this not the case. Can't wait to try it out tonight and see what gives. So far no regrets it's smaller then I imagined it to be even...

    Small bright flashlight for aircraft mechanic

    I have to agree with Flashcrazy. Headlamps are the way to go for work of this nature. As Exhibit Maintenance Tech in an Aviation Museum I often need to work in all sorts of weird spots. I have a Black Diamond dual source head lamp(3W center LED and 4 side mount LED) I use for both work and...

    Toughest survival flashlight

    Ever think of a decent survival knife like a Ka-Bar of Falkniven that has a stryker plate for hammering then you could get something like Fenix PD30 or LD20. Yes they do put out +/- 200 lumens but can also be dialed down to 9 for super long runtime and you can as a red filter that could be...

    Torture Test - How would you impress?

    Waterproof: Well IPX-8 seems to be a good standard. I would love to see something I can maybe take to the bottom of 13 foot pool in a diving class pool or something but otherwise more hasle and cost for no reason. Drop: I like think the tipical drop is 6 to 10 feet which should be about the...

    Anything better (in terms of throw/output) than my TK40

    MaxaBeam, I had a buddy come up with with something like that. It was a Motorcycle headlight with a deepcycle battery and High beam low beam switch. Lit up the worl like it was daylight. Looks like it was just as portable and at a fraction of the cost. Still a cool light none the less.

    Fenix Problem

    I assume it's the same but in my PD20 manual it clearly states that Turbo mode should be used sparingly and only for 15 mintues at a time. Maybe this is why.
