    What is your favorite 26650 flashlight?

    I have the Foursevens Maelstrom MMU-X3, and this is the only 26650 flashlight I have ever owned or used. I've been looking at some of the newer ones on the market. What are some of your favorites? What do you think are the pros and cons of usb-c rechargeable flashlights that use this same...

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    The mode change works every time with alkaline C batteries and sporadically with the eneloops and c adapters. I had taken the eneloops straight out of the package and put them in the flashlight. I am charging them now to make sure that wasn't the issue.

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    Has anyone had issues with mode changing on the 2nd gen ml25lt? I have been trying the eneloops with c adapters and I have to turn off/on several times to get the high mode selected.

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    bykfixer, did you wrap the entire threaded section with the teflon tape? Was the turning operation still smooth? Did you add lube on top of the teflon tape?

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    bykfixer, when you say flop are you referring to movement within the threads while the light is on? Does the head rattle a bit when you shake it while it's on and focused with a tight hot spot? I am trying to figure out if I want to go through the trouble of an exchange with maglite. If the...

    What is the most reliable AAA keychain light?

    I've had the Fenix E05 on my keychain for about 6 years. The lens is all scratched up, and the anodizing is worn some, but the light hasn't quit yet. Sorry no clicky switch or strobe modes.

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    There is some resistance (like I have felt on other maglites) when first turning the head but there is a noticeable point when the resistance stops and the turning is very loose. This happens right as the hot spot is getting tight at a distance.

    Will I turn into a Maglite fan once again?

    I just got a Maglite ml25lt 2C that I ordered from Amazon. It came in a small box (about the size of the light) vs the blister pack that was pictured on Amazon. Is that normal? But my major concern is when I twist it on and adjust to a tighter hot spot, the threads on the head get loose and...

    I have a JetBeam PA40 (4AA Max 468 lumens) in great condition (with original box and contents) that I would like to trade for a folding knife. Below are some knives I am interested in.

    Battery testing for kid's school project

    If we were going to use a flashlight (1AA) to test the longevity of the batteries, which ones would you recommend. I'm thinking the L3 Illumination L10, but maybe too expensive. Nite Ize 3-in-1 mini is around $10 Coast HP1 is on sale at amazon for around $10

    Foursevens Mini Mark II

    Why is the medium so close to the high (after 15 second burst)? Only 50 lumen difference after the step down. Am I seeing that right?

    Battery testing for kid's school project

    Lexel, Can you direct me to a tutorial or example of how to build a simple setup like you are talking about? I am by no means an electronics expert. I just really like flashlights. I am also looking for recommendations on books or websites for my daughter to learn about batteries.

    Battery testing for kid's school project

    I need some quick recommendations and I hope you guys don't mind helping me out. My daughter wants to test batteries for her 5th grade science project (her idea). As I have passed on my interest in flashlights to me kids, I have tried to teach them about batteries. I'm excited that she wants to...

    *NEW* Maratac AAA Titanium

    I have had the Maratac Ti for about a week now. I cleaned the threads and used TriFlow synthetic grease. The threads are still tight and gritty. The inside spring is strong which I think affects the feel of the threads to some degree. If you apply a little inward pressure between the head and...

    Single AAA clicky recommendations?

    Streamlight Protac 1AAA is also worth a look. It has a tail clicky with momentary function, and a pocket clip. You can program it to be high only, high/low, or high/strobe/low.
