    Where to buy quality 2x18650 pack with connector?

    A lantern of mine came with a terrible quality 2 x 18650 side by side pack, wired in parallel, with what looks like a small tamiya connector. I’d like to find a source for quality cells like this config. Any ideas as to where to buy?

    Modding an Inova T1; possible?

    The Inova T1 has always been a favorite of mine for its incredible build quality, grenade grip, kroll switch purely cylindrical form. Can’t think of any other light quite like it. Awesome handfeel. Anyway, the T1 was discontinued. I have 2 of them, one with an xpg and the other with a luxeon...

    Looking for best quality LED Christmas lights

    It's time to completely retire my old dying incan light strings. I have been looking online at pre-done strings as well as individual retrofit bulbs (C7 size preferred). From what I've read so far, retrofits are brighter (3 emitters vs 1) generally speaking. Been looking at the ones made by...

    Inova T4 battery - higher capacity replacement?

    I love the T4, but it still amazingly comes with a 2200ma battery that seems proprietary in structure. Anyone figured out a source for a better cell, other than tearing down an old one and soldering?

    A Stranger seeking... The Pumphouse!

    This past Sunday evening around dusk, an older guy I’ve never met before knocked on my front door. He was super thin, friendly, with scraggly white hair. When I answered, he smiled warmly and introduced himself, and said he was an old acquaintance of a man named, “Timer”. I had to stop and...

    Looking for insert for votive lantern

    Ever notice that many stores carry very cool lanterns made from glass, metal, wood, etc, and are powered by a votive sized candle? I was wondering if there was an insert of sorts that could be used to produce a useable light from them. And not the dim, amber flicker 5mm led sort, either...

    Upgraded headlamps to Cibie/Osram, but I have ?s

    Recently, I swapped my 2012 Wrangler's headlamps for Cibies and Osram 65w bulbs (Dan Stern). Great improvement. I opted to go with pigtails and the stock wiring, fearing extremely short bulb life if I went slightly Hotwire by getting the rallylights harness. As a flashaholic/longtime CPF'er...

    Quick IMR question about when they are beneficial

    I've researched alot and found three seemingly prevailing opinions on IMR 18650s and when it's beneficial to use them. 1. When you are doing a 3+ amp draw 2. When the current draw is 5+ amps 3. When powering incans with 2+ amps, so as not to get a quick voltage reduction because of the burst...
