    Found a light caving

    This Saturday I went caving with some friends at a local favorite of mine. Part way in while walking in a stream passage, I saw a foreign object floating in the water. It's common caver practice that when a caver finds trash they pack it out of the cave. But I squinted, and quickly recognized a...

    MagLite upgraded to a Rebel!! (pics in post 34)

    While at Lowe's tonight checking for the Remington headlamp, I happened to look down at the Mag's. And what do I see, but Rebel LED's in the 2D and 3D models!! They were stamped with "060", which suggests to me that they were Rebel 60's. Should focus into a tighter spot now.

    Fenix LD01 - LOD-Q4 replacement

    Just found info on the fabled replacement to the LOD-Q4. 4sevens hinted at this upgrade back in September, and said it would include a higher PWM frequency, but nothing else was really known. The other important upgrade is to a full Q5 LED. Unfortunately I do not read Chinese well enough to get...

    Subforum rename

    It seems to me a LOT of members totally miss the "flashlight electronics - batteries included" forum and post their battery questions in the light section.

    Home made water pressure/depth test

    I was thinking about the low pressure water resistance tests which some people perform. This usually entails a sink, bathtub, and occasionally the deep end of a pool. This is all fine and dandy for most uses, but what about the more robust lights which should be able to handle much, much more...

    Looking for low Vf 5mm white

    I am looking for a 5mm white LED with a particularly low Vf. I want to direct drive it off two AA's, so Vf needs to operate from 1.8-3.4v idealy, 2-2.8v would be acceptable.

    Need outfitted for caving

    I am interested in joining a local caving group (Huntsville Grotto for those of you in the area). My caving experience is pretty much limited to tourist caves, and not really any wild caves. From what I understand, they will loan me a hardhat and headlamp for the first couple trips, until I...

    CPF Business Cards

    Should we make unofficial, or Greta approved official business cards for CPF? Here is my reason: Checking a semi-local Target to see if they had anything left of the spring clearance, I overheard a guy and his wife talking. They were passing the flashlight aisle and he tugged her in saying "Oh...
