    Any companies making a light like this?

    Been a Fenix fan for a few years now. My stuff is old skool. One thing that sticks out to me every winter though is how nice it would be if lights were made with a polymer body like a SF G2. My current dream light would be having my old and faithful LD1/P2D/P3D, same dimensions, same functions...

    Using drop in to moda M*glite

    I got an idea after using dereelight and ebay Cree drop ins on some SF's. Am thinking of using one in a 2D and 3D mag as a quick and easy mod. Noticed alot of the pills state 3-9v input. So if using a 3 cell mag I should be getting 4.5v and 3v (approx) for a 2D. This should be enough to run...

    Car Overheating Question
