    Why I Buy Maglite

    I buy Mag because no other brand matters as much to me decade after decade after decade. I have ten on the way from Mag Insturment. People act like they hate them but they offer the most for such a fair price.

    Headlight vs flashlight

    I use headlamps off and on. Usually in times when I'm not doing lights as a hobby I'll only use a headlamp from Petzl or Princeton Tec. I don't find them exciting like flashlights so I don't buy many. I've broken a Zipka and another got stolen, both were Petzls.

    you are only allowed one flash light for rest of your life.What is it ?

    That is why my choice would center more around design of the light than power or function. The only time I went for an extended time without electricity C/D MagLites got me through just fine. STick a 5 or 4 D cell down the side of a couch and bounce light off the ceiling to light a room. The...

    Seems like all the 4 AA lights are gone

    I mentioned UK because it is most certainly a light you can get in USA because it is made here. The quality is high enough that some people here have them. I had a rebranded one back in the day. Bright Guy out of Ohio sells them.

    Pre-krypton minimag bulbs

    I've used every kind of MiniMaglite bulb. I'll never forget losing my first bulb in a waterbed only to find it a month later or better yet discovering a hidden spare in the tailcap. When I had them both burned out I would even use my allowance monies to get more at True Value which was costly...

    LEP Lights Made Outside of China

    Some design firm crafted some for Energizerin the 90s and Wolf Eyes is so popular there you would swear it is from AU. I too would like a made in USA LEP but I'm leaning more towards a Nitecore for the time being.

    Elzetta- The industry's best kept secret.

    fcuk Elzetta Who hadn't seen the Yellow Charlie for $300+, I got out my own Charlie and looked at the turn cap and pointy bezel and could just imagine replacing two sets of parts here in a month or so. Instead I go for something Spanish instead.... I thought I saved a bundle buying this from...

    Inside the Wuben flashlight factory!

    Don't make jokes maybe they get lost in translation. It is really great that they let someone film production and the like. I don't see American flashlight companies being this open. Knowing they produce Reylight I think it is neat knowing more back story this time on the production side of...

    What did you use your flashlight for today?

    They really like if you wrap a rag around a stick and soak it in fuel and hold it under their nests. Lit of course.

    What did you use your flashlight for today?

    I liked Arc back in the day and had two at some point but gave them to some people. Last year I see their website and decide to buy one but they are now out of buisiness. I guess Peak is the closest I'll get now. That said I have a Brinkmann incan, Mag Solitaire LED, and SF Titan which never get...
