    Zebralight H600Fc Mk IV - First Impressions

    Stefano, the H604c is high CRI and warmest LED. That combination = hottest led per lumen produced. So isn't this behavior what one would expect between those lights?

    is there any benefits to gas or keroscenne laterns?.

    Do you understand how the lumens measurement works for omni lanterns? I really have no idea, but I wonder if using those numbers is a 1:1 comparison or not? Your math was great. But it only works for what I am interested in by how well it lights the camp. Lux over a 360 degree horizontal band...

    is there any benefits to gas or keroscenne laterns?.

    800 lumens over 360 degrees, the equivalent of maybe 10 flashlights arranged in a circle. That's 4 pounds for batteries. $240 vs $1.00 worth of gas, or something to that effect. Or possibly I completely misunderstsnd the lumens measurement on lanterns.

    ??? I have thousands of hours on these lanterns. They light in seconds. Yours is probably due for a rebuild. :au:

    is there any benefits to gas or keroscenne laterns?.

    I'm still a huge fan of my Coleman white gas lantern for base camps. I believe white gas carries far more lumens per pound than any battery, but I haven't verified the math. It runs great on gasoline, so if we lose the grid, we still have years of light...as long as we don't shatter the globes...

    Pandemic Mental Health - How YOU doin'?

    I empathize to a certain extent, in that it is about a specific individual. On the other hand, the individual in this case was famous, had the public ear, and was notoriously anti-vax and anti-science. He took on the mantle of responsibility by making his many public comments against vaccines...

    Pandemic Mental Health - How YOU doin'?

    Please look up gallows humor. Please. It's why warriors joke about death. It's absolutely normal, harmless, helpful, human behavior. It by no means reduces the compassion or professionalism of those who are putting their lives on the line every ****ing day to take care of ill and dying people...

    Pandemic Mental Health - How YOU doin'?

    Mentally...better than ever? Killed off Facebook. Got rid of my AT&T land line. I have never had Tweethole, Instablah, or any other social media soul sucking, clown shoes promoting platform. Forums with like-minded people keep me whole and happy. I did catch my first cold in about 20 years...

    is zebralight sc5w ii the best aa light?

    EDITED: Telling me to be respectful while referencing imaginary panties isn't the best way to make peace, but I'm a reasonable non-panty-wearing, freeballing man. So I've edited this post to make it more helpful. :cool: You don't like a light that comes on in high when you click the button...

    is zebralight sc5w ii the best aa light?

    Does a Quark that uses single AA exist? I guess you mean the 12 year old Quark MiNi AA? Not even in the same universe. Zebralight's AA Specs: 407~166~46~3.2/30 minutes, 168 minutes, 588 minutes, 6048 minutes with a max of 550! At low, low it will run for about Quark MiNi AA Specs: 90~25~2.7/78...

    is zebralight sc5w ii the best aa light?

    Maybe actually learn something about the light before you judge it? One short click can turn on the light at any level you want. Holding the light cycles through any three combinations of brightness you want. Double clicking any level can change to any other level you want. Three clicks turns...

    Coolers

    I'm a fan of Made in USA products. My favorite is Cordova Coolers. Made in Alaska. Vet owned. 1/3 less than other rotomolded USA-made coolers. Top access latches, which are awesome. Metal handles, which are incredible. Better design. Equal or better quality. Made in USA. And cost LESS. What's...

    is zebralight sc5w ii the best aa light?

    best non rechargable battery for aa zebralight

    Literally almost everyone made that suggestion, or at least a bunch of us. :-)

    best non rechargable battery for aa zebralight

    2.5 - 3.0 max continuous current. That should be more than enough for 550 lumens. Max lumens in not the reason to use these batteries in my opinion. Again, no reason to use primaries except for emergencies or where rechargeables are not allowed, or where you can't charge batteries, and you will...
