    Anyone know why the LD42 was discontinued? I have one in my car and one in my nightstand, and I have found them excellent.

    BE AMAZED! The New Fenix LD42 LED Flashlight Upgrade is Released

    I've been an intermittent poster and reviewer since 2006. I do not collect flashlights per se; I have however used them all over the globe in various degrees of situational criticality. I understand the various opinions about plastic bodies, and they are certainly worth raising, esp. perhaps if...

    Time for a new charger

    Tom Thanks for the reply. I think I will stick with "proven" technology - i.e., familiar = that which I can more easily manage. Having to remember what the program was on a routine I may have forgotten to save sounds like an invitation to frustration and more for me. Another 9000 could be in my...

    Time for a new charger

    kreisl, I'm comfortable with that, and I'm used to setting both CC and DC depending on my use. No reason I need an all-in-one charger! But what about my 18650's?

    Zebralight SC600 MK III Hi or Plus?

    Dave3 It would really help if you told us what your criteria were. What aspects of a light in this case are the important ones to you? Kind of hard to help without that info; otherwise multi-variable reviews are your best source I think.

    Thanks Fivemega I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that a day after posting my inquiry I took the time to AGAIN rummage through the many boxes of flashlight "stuff" I have.

    Zebralight SC600-III (XHP35, 1x18650) Review: RUNTIMES, BEAMSHOTS, VIDEO and more!

    It's been a while since my last post [I've been off in the wilds more than home, it seems]. I really appreciate your SC600 Mk III review, as I now need a new higher-intensity light to replace some >>>10-yrs old ones I have carried in vehicles over the years. Seems like this ZL is a good balance...

    Eneloop Gen1 vs Gen2 Thread Merge - Norm The last post on this I could find was in 2011, so I am asking for more recent experience/data: If I have the option to keep/rely on Gen1 vs Gen2 envelops [1900mh types] – which are likely to be more reliable over the longer haul? I have both [Gen1...

    selfbuilt I really appreciate and often rely on the many reports you have shared with us here! Thank you very much.

    Why doesn't the SC52 have any real competition?

    Re: What about the XENO E03 V3? Since 2006 I have been using (5) Zebralights, both headlamps and straight-ahead flashlights. Our usage has happened on 5 continents and under very harsh conditions. We get great light and long run times in real-world situations — and zero failures or minor...
