    Help me think: 3rd world country lighting and charging solutions

    That's how the vehicle fast charge station for the 5.11 lights work. I hate that it got discontinued before I could get one. I could see it as one useful tool among a selection of equipment for the case of being in and out of the vehicle frequently. Check my post history, you'll find I'm...

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

    Wow, man, sorry to hear that DT. I've had to do some work on "new in box" DX lights before as well. Can't beat the price, guess it's like the old saying... you get what you pay for.

    Thank you sir. According to the first link, you charged the supercap at 1 amp and it was done in about 8 and a half minutes on the Cooper cap. I find myself wondering how much faster, say at 4 amps like the Samsung INR18650-25r? Do we know max charging rate for that example capacitor?

    I have an antique vehicle. It runs, it gets me places. Just because the BMW HP4 Superbike exists doesn't invalidate my antique. There's more to life than what you're admitting. You're extremely closed-minded sir. I can take wild game with a bow and arrow. That still works, though gunpowder was...

    http://www.led-resource.com/2011/02/5-11-tactical-light-for-life-pc3-300-review/ I've decided I'm going to build a supercap light. I will giggle when I charge it on a campfire. Better yet, I'll send it to Vinh and see what he can do with it. :)

    double o-rings?

    My one and only dive light is double o-ring. :) Uranusfire. Surprisingly, build quality wasn't bad except for an unscrewed pill that I had to tighten. I don't see how it could do anything but help water resistance.

    HKJ, sir, as one of the most respected battery guys of CPF could you tell us offhand one of the fastest charging 18650 batteries and at what rate? I know slow charging helps battery lifespan, but how hard can we put the pedal to the metal and on what battery? Safely?

    I agree, etc. Eneloops and a Foursevens Quark, perhaps? Really efficient light, great low mode support. Nice long low runtimes. Unfortunately, nowhere near a search light. :( So? So what? Burning alcohol has less energy density than gasoline. It still burns. Whatever, man. Apparently, you missed...

    You're just logging in to disagree with people as usual. :( The point was that the body heat light runs on a supercap. Also, you just said that thermoelectric doesn't work. So cool water and fire don't exist in the third world? What of the power generation and rechargeable lights that you put on...

    Hey, the way I see it is that a light is a light is a light. If you're in darkness, you light a light. Doesn't matter if it's a fire-on-a-stick. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?312310-Fire-on-a-stick-Review-A-Layman-s-Perspective The advantage of light is being able to see. A...

    XKCD: flashlights

    What model is this? I need a flashlight that has sound effects and sets trees on fire. It's an added bonus if it has recoil as well.

    Does that matter if it charges in 90 seconds, such as the 5.11 "Light for life"

    How do you rationalize flashlight purchases with your significant other?

    What models of wife does Surefire offer? After several failures without recourse, I'm interested in SF's customer service and warranty.
