    What LED flashlight is sitting on your nightstand?

    Especially the Dust Destroyer...might not be a bad idea, as my nightstand is covered with dust. :o

    Maglite warranty

    It's true, Maglite recently added a handling fee for warranty work, depending on the size of the light (ie. Solitaire LED is $3, Pro 2D LED is $15). I don't think their warranty service centers will be able to repair LED lights.

    I haven't seen the lights, but based on the specs, it looks like an LED upgrade to XP-E or XP-E2.

    Companies that use shatterproof lenses like Surefire?

    Polycarbonate is plastic, I would expect it to be more flexible than's very hard to break polycarbonate.

    Companies that use shatterproof lenses like Surefire?

    As far as I know, Streamlight is the only company that uses scratch-resistant coated polycarbonate. These windows can mainly be found on the Stinger series.

    Only SureFire's lithium-phosphate rechargeable 123A's are recommended for the Fury. Anything else, and you're on your own.

    Pelican 7060 Amazed me...

    It's not the same version of the Pelican 7060, the 2007 review would be of the original 7060 with 130 lumens and a 1.5 hour runtime. In 2010, the 7060 was upgraded from the original XR-E EZ1000 to the XR-E EZ900 (identified with 7064 REV. C printed on the outside of the LED module), which draws...

    Are there rechargeable AA lithium batteries but with 1.5v?

    Nope, there's simply no lithium-ion 1.5V AA's because of the chemistry.

    Anyone know how to remove tailswitch on a Streamlight Propolymer 4aa Luxeon?

    Call them on Monday and ask for instructions. I've removed tail switches from Stinger lights (insert needle-nose pliers and turn the tailcap assembly), but I'm not sure how the switch is secured in the ProPolymer series.

    Are we losing the plot?

    On the R1, the tail switch is pretty much fail-proof though (it's not really a switch). There's also the new four-function switch in the UNR, which allows maximum output when the switch is fully pressed and bypasses the control ring. In other words, there are many ways to make mode memory and...

    Are we losing the plot?

    Mode memory is fine for tactical situations as long as there's a way to get to maximum output. For example, the SureFire R1 has mode memory for the head switch, but the tail switch is a tactically correct single mode switch.

    Just ordered a streamlight 66318 microStream C4 led light.

    We've got a bit more info here: Overall, it's a nice pocket light. Remember that more output means less runtime, and sometimes, it's not really necessary.

    .25 lux at 400 metres = 50 lux at ?? metres

    ANSI FL1 Beam Distance is calculated using the following formula: Beam Distance = √(Peak Beam Intensity/0.25). If beam distance is 400 meters, that means peak beam intensity is 40,000 candela. Using the formula with 50 instead of 0.25, you'll get 28 meters for beam distance to 50 lux.

    M7R Power output/options

    It's 2200mAh. More info here: I think you should be able to use any protected 18650 in the light, but I haven't tried it.

    Based on the rate at which SureFire releases products, I think you're in luck. ;)
