    User interfaces killed by feature creep?

    I'm not normally a curmudgeon when it comes to features and complex menu driven interfaces. My favorite light of all time is the Liteflux LF2XT - plenty o menu options, possibly beyond what's absolutely necessary and definitely limited by the available micro-controllers of the day, in fact some...

    Incoming - What do you have coming in the mail??

    I know they're not looked on with as much favor around here due to the magnificently complicated anduril UI but I just picked up a Noctigon KR4 in black but with a copper head and SS bezel. I went with SST 4000k but I'm already pretty certain I should've gone with different LED's. I looked...

    What LED flashlight is sitting on your nightstand?

    Liteflux LF2XT with memory off, set to come on at its lowest setting for nighttime navigation. CL1HV4 set to maximum is never too far away either, though I don't normally anticipate needing it.

    keeping flashlights 'loaded'

    Had Alks leak on me several times, the worst was when a set of AA's exploded inside my [email protected] they were packed in there so tightly with grime that I had to toss the light, even a screwdriver-ram took some work to get them out, and in the process we sort of totaled the switch mechanism.. oh...

    How do you hold your flashlight

    cigar grip is my favorite but gets interchanged with tactical on occasion. sometimes I also use the 'traditional' flashlight grip even on my tailclickie lights, depends on what i'm doing with them.

    Rotary Adjustable Tailcap - Waddya Think?

    Amen, the UI i've been waiting for. It needs to be a pot connected to the driver circuit to tell it how hard to drive the LED (PWM duty cycle) instead of directly in series with it. That way efficiency can be maintained and you don't need a great big expensive pot to handle the 1000ma+ of...

    Holster for cl1h?

    Agreed, I love the clip, but due to an unfortunate stupidity on my part I tore the clip right off. I'm looking for a holster as well simply for protection of the light. I use the clip as much as i can, but when working or expecting to run into things, i'll pocket the light just so it doesn't...
