    Surefire lamps on LiFePO4

    That is pretty cheap, I had seen some online at around $6 each but figured rechargeable to still be better value overall. I have noted these cells are used in some Wireless PIR detectors...

    Surefire lamps on LiFePO4

    These cost around $10+ AUD in local stores, how cheap are they sold for in the US?

    Surefire A2 Aviator bi-pin adaptors/Tad's customs

    What an interesting development, I have read the entire thread and visited Tad's site but am unable to determine the dimensions of the bi-pin bulbs supported in these adapters, hence my question... are these bulbs the same dimensions as a Streamlight Strion bi-pin?

    What is the pinnacle of Incan Flashlights in your opinion?

    And another here... with the FM Strion & Koala LED ring upgrades the light is by far my favourite, the only negative is the battery options.

    strange behaviour of my A2

    There are times when my Strion adapter modded A2 hums like this so your not alone, I've always understood it as being a regulator quirk...

    Well, so much for Incan support from SureFire

    I guess the "window of opportunity" is even smaller for those of us that only recently acquired aging SF incandescent designs... there will always be the potential for enterprising enthusiasts/machinists to offer an aftermarket solution though there would be no guarantee that will always involve...

    Well, so much for Incan support from SureFire

    This reminds me of the ever dwindling almost non existent N90 lamp assemblies out there... perhaps some expired assemblies to modify/experiment with might be a better option... where to source such a beast? :thinking: I'm glad my A2 needs have been addressed for the next few years...

    MR16 Maglite; applicable?

    I had considered building one of these but opted for the flexibility of a bi-pin bulb configuration instead, the KIU socket/modded mag switch is sufficient for the job unless you've using more than a 50w bulb, 14AA cells in a 4D carrier was an excellent alternative to Li-Ion D sized cells...

    Thoughts on a P60 sized micro-hotwire

    If you want another Sundrop G4 production run OR custom PR bulb P60 express your interest to FiveMega garnering sufficient interest along the way to make such a venture financially viable for him...

    should i mod it or leave it alone????

    Yeah it looks pretty old school for a 90's light doesn't it? :ooo: Reference @ Flashlight Museum :thumbsup: FWIW I'd ROP mod it too ;)

    can u direct me to incandescent flashlites featuring more than one bulb?

    In addition to the dual bulb spotlights, 9N, 9AN & 10X there are/were also hybrid lights featuring an incandescent primary and LED secondaries :thumbsup: BTW Pelican also make the Aqua Lite & King Lite flashlights with a dual filament bulb not quite 2 separate bulbs though is it? :naughty:

    Streamlight Ultrastinger

    +1 :thumbsup: My wife purchased the Ultrastinger for my birthday, it's one thing to have a spouse accept our peculiar hobby but to have one that also supports it is even better! :devil:

    New: upgraded Magcharger now available!

    That would stand without question... the ANSI rating yields an additional 44m range to the Magcharger over the Ultrastinger as well as a higher candela rating just not the Lumen rating ;) Blackbear did an interesting beamshot comparison of the Mag & Ultra @ though to be...
