    Looking for a bare bones featureless taclight can't find anything plz halp?

    You might also consider adding an aftermarket strike bezel to whatever light you ultimately select. There are several reputable sellers among this community's supporters, and dozens online. I recommend selecting the light first; the bezel bling is the easiest bit to source afterwards.

    18650 to 2-D?

    I bought a similar adapter from XXO, a 21700 to 2C adapter tube. It fits both my light and the 21700 cell perfectly...slides into the battery tube without sticking; no rattle; and the tailcap spring seats with the same tension as when using a 2C configuration. I have no hesitation recommending...

    ---Hooked On A Feeling---

    I share Bull-Dozer's attention to the marketplace, to identify some new variation on portable lighting that might augment or advance my current lights' capabilities. I already have more than enough of what I need for my purposes. Experience has demonstrated however that there are often...

    darkest place you have ever been?

    My darkest nights were all during naval service, with one exception. Happy Memory: Sailing the western Pacific, on a moonless night there are only the stars for illumination. Annoying Memory: When conducting emergency drills, there is no starlight if you're below decks. During disaster...

    Solarforce P1 internal dimension

    Your question piqued my curiosity. I have five Solarforce P1 hosts, and my caliper measurements of each show an internal bore diameter of 19 mm, without any variation measurable by digital caliper. Also, every kind of 18650 cell I have (including Panasonic) slides into each tube easily, without...

    Mirage Man Customs

    Ten million years from now, when alien archeologists are picking over humanity's remains, they're going to find these lights. I suspect that they'll still work, too.

    Woods walking

    You might consider getting your daughter a small, lightweight trail running headlamp, something like a NiteCore NU17 or NU20. It would be all her very own. Hands-free lighting. Both have low modes for woods walking. Rechargeable. A good light for daddy's best girl.

    Hello from SoCal

    Whereabouts in SoCal? I lived and worked in San Diego, La Jolla, LA, Long Beach, and San Francisco, in the days when the sky was brown from auto exhaust, not forest fires.

    Hi from Rome

    So, Alex, are there any interesting Italian-made torches you own or know about? (If the Italian's make one, it's sure to be sleek and elegant, and all of us in the U.S. will want one. 😁 )

    What‘s your favorite headlamp?

    Ohhhh...do I have headlamps. I'm a backpacker, and tailor my headlamp to the environment I'm hiking in. For wide open spaces and mountain environments (the Sierra Nevada range, for example) I prefer a really good thrower with a decent spill beam like the Nitecore HC30 (1000 lumens on Turbo /...

    Disaster Light for Emergency workers

    Quoting Vicv... "I think for the runtimes required, I'd recommend either a maglite ML50 3C or an ML300 which uses D cells. The D cells will give you longer run time but it will also make for a larger heavier light. " If you decide to investigate the utility of Maglite products, I recommend that...

    Duracell Quantums discontinued !

    Responding to the rhetorical question about uses for alkaline C and/or D cells, I seem to recall that the C cells have four times the energy density of a AA cell, and the energy density of a D cell is right times greater than the humble AA. In my anecdotal experience, I have never had a C or D...
