    Eiger QTC SS In Stock

    The Logan/cr123 90* is awesomely usefull.. have it on a 2xAA Brass body with a brass Rainier head. I'll drop the light in my pocket and the 90 degree head lights up my path. i'm using NiZn batteries and 2 of them work really well for direct drive rainiers.

    Crazy Question: Any Peak Bezels compatible with EX10?

    Threads are not the same. I've modded a Peak Caribbean to utilize an EX10 circuit, but it was not an easy task. One of my favorite mods/lights, It's been a staple in my EDC rotation for over a year now. nowadays, you can get similar...

    Possible to upgrade a Peak Caribbean?

    and this method works very well, lost my Brass Pacific CR2 XLR Seoul Pocket Body in the snow this past winter. found it a couple months later when the snow melted. battery and light worked fine, threads were not tarnished, orings were intact, but dried out, the silvery area around the led...

    Any Peak Guru's?

    P4 Baltics are tricky to mod.. but not impossible. once you unscrew the two halves of the head, you'll see an aluminum ring surrounding the led. carefully drill 2 tiny holes on opposite sides of the ring, stop when you are through the ring or you'll damage stuff underneath it. screw in a pair...

    what soldering iron do u use

    i use the radio shack mini butane soldering iron. have been using it for 12+ years and they still sell the replaceable tips for it. the tip is small enough to do work inside AAA heads.

    Ti Sapphire w/Neutral Cree XP-E

    drilling through the 5mm is pretty simple. just make sure you keep it centered while you drill as you dont want to eliminate the original 5mm leads as they become a structural peice. also in hindsight, i wish i filled the resuling hole in the 5mm with some silicone glue or even AA, to make the...

    Source for quantum tunneling composite?

    they are pretty small, but each one can handle up to 10amps. also being so small, they dont take up much space in the body.

    Source for quantum tunneling composite?

    i ordered mine here from mutr. ignore their posted shipping rates. qtc's weigh nothing, actual shipping charge for 70 QTC's was around $4 to NY. was just over a week for shipping. (70 QTC's covers their minimum online purchase requirements..i think min purchase was $17 after conversion, total...

    Anyone try the momentary switch with the QTC yet?

    Here's one method for a standard keychain body with a qtc and momentary. used a nail with a head on it that fit snugly into the brass momentary. cut it down to size so that the nail+qtc is sitting below the top of the foam spacer. remove the brass nub and spring from the momentary and replace...

    Not Gonna Buy Cool White Again! [Join Club Here]

    im this way too. i tend to stick with neutral leds between 4000-4500k, and as for tint at this color temp, i avoid the greens at all cost, I dont mind the blue and reddish tints. warm leds are like underpowered incans...dont like them in a reflector, but they are great as mules. the worst led...

    Searching the most efficiant warm white LED chip

    hmm, thats an old typo on mouser's site thats been there since they hosted S2 bins. these are T2 bin which are 88-91lm, which is written on their site, i also verified by calling them and having them check the bin on their packaging. here's a screen of the leds i'm talking about. but when you...

    Ti Sapphire w/Neutral Cree XP-E

    sorry gunga, didnt notice your question earlier. it's obviously a more robust mod using the heatsink and i prefer it, but i doubt the 25ma going to the led really needs it. (although the older arc circuit pushes 65ma+ on lithium AAA primary) i dont have the ability to do temperature i...

    QTC material as an incan soft start?

    QTC material is becoming a hot topic now spanning many of the led forums here. Havent seen any reference to QTC being used as a soft start device, but it seems like this material would fit right into the incan world as well. unfortunatly i dont have any hi-po incans, but it was just an idea to...

    I'm game, i'll be using a Ti Peak Caribbean with an HO E1R and a cut down McR Reflector as my EDC. Caribbeans are such an awesomely sized light.
