    Where are the flashaholics?

    I noticed awhile back that I went from a flashaholic to a "Well-known member" during the forum changeover. Does anyone else miss seeing flashaholics everywhere here in the forum?

    A nicel single 18650 lantern I bought years ago.

    I bought a small LED lantern a few years ago that takes a single 18650 cell and liked it but it got flaky and I found that when they assembled it a wire was crushed under the plastic where it shouldn't have been. I took the lantern apart and while trying to fix it I was testing my soldering job...

    100 lumen LED 3AA desk lamp at Dollar Tree

    I just picked up a $1 desk lamp at Dollar Tree today and am pleasantly surprised at the bargain. It uses 3AA batteries and I have 3 duraloops in mine. Output seems to be on par with 100 lumens and color it probably 5500K or so slightly bluish output but not bad. It uses a cheap clicky switch...

    How many people still use light sticks

    When I was growing up we used to get light sticks or bracelets at the fair and the light was fun not as much for the purpose of seeing by it but getting noticed. With the onset of LEDs that take small amounts of power you can buy LED light sticks for cheap, not as cheap as a light stick but...

    New Milwaukee 12A lithium ion tool batteries uses 21700 cells

    I had thought it wouldn't happen nearly as quickly as this, power tool companies embracing larger than 18650 cells in their battery packs. I figured they would stick with 18650 cells for the size/shape/weight etc. I saw a new 12Ah milwaukee tool battery at Home Depot last night and it looked...

    I got a warning that this site is a deceptive site and it says the site may try to trick folks into installing software or giving up personal information etc. I'm guessing others will also get this warning who are using firefox 50.
