    LED Search Light

    Good thought. Be aware though that (to my knowledge) most bike lights have thermals designed with higher airflows in mind. Bike mounted = lots of cold air to help keep the LED cool. You may find these lights to overheat and / or shut down when being handheld. Just something to bear in mind.

    Anyone edc a surefire?

    TL;DR - Yes, ultimately overdriving would probably be the best summary. This was from a more innocent time when I hadn’t looked into the effect of circuit design and component selection on thermal management and emmiter lifespan. Potting of course interfered with the thermal side of things...

    Anyone edc a surefire?

    @knucklegary & @ilikeguns40 Haha, yeah I wear my lights pretty hard. Between myself, my Dad and my large family, we have a lot of "torches", as we call them here down under, and they get a massive amount of use put on them in our line of work. We take good care of our gear, but both Dad and I...

    Anyone edc a surefire?

    I confess I've always been partial to the looks of the older generation Surefire lights. But when they could be had I couldn't afford them. I got a Solarforce and modded it instead! =) I've always meant to get a stock 6P or something just to put some use on it. I stuck with that Solarforce...

    boring a 6p

    I have the proper tooling for boring, did three heavily-used Elzetta Bravos just the other day. I use adjustable reamers to keep it centred, and then polish with sandpaper for a nice finish. These went out to 18.70mm for a snug fit on Panasonic 3500mAh wrapped cells.

    {{ Stuff that just works }}

    Zero Tolerance and Rick Hinderer collaborated on the ZT0562TI folding knife. No-nonsense functionality in a top quality folding knife. Has never let me down, unlike not one but two other knives, which left their marks on my hands when their respective locks broke…. (No I wasn’t misusing them...

    Is the (flashlight) "save" dead?

    I was started many moons ago by a friend who gifted me a Mini Maglite - a treasure indeed back then - and a folding knife. I was hooked, and have pretty much never been without a good light and knife ever since. Nowadays I carry an Elzetta Bravo AVS flood which I bored for 18650s. I own it...

    Expansion tube for Elzetta Alpha

    Nice work! Keen to do something like this for my Bravo. I've bored it, (properly) and am considering modding an old Solarforce L2 extension tube I have, so as to be able to run two 18650s. The only consideration is that Solarforce run their ID (internal diameter) at 18.85mm, whereas I like a...

    Elzetta- The industry's best kept secret.

    bykfixer, I'm pleased to say it was your post that tipped me over the edge into laying down my hard-earned cash on an Elzetta Bravo with the flood lens. I was considering throwing a Malkoff into my very, VERY well-worn (almost through the tail stand ring) and modded Solarforce L2P, but went...

    Elzetta Limited Edition

    Hi everyone! First post here on CPF, so forgive me if I doo-doo anything I shouldn't! I've followed CPF for years, and sourced much valuable information here in my path from Maglite through Kathmandu and Fenix to Solarforce (the famed and much-loved-when-potted L2P!) and on now finally to the...
