    Holster for SureFire UB3T?

    Hi, does anyone have a suggestion for a good holster or another solution to carry the SureFire UB3T? It doesn't need to be SF, 3rd party solutions are fine. I tried a Mag D ring holder, but the UB3T is too top/front heavy, so it doesn't need a big push to the tail to get it to jump out.

    New version of SureFire E2L

    Looking at the following video, it appears SF is coming out with a new version of the E2L: It might just be a cosmetic change, but the head looks a little bit bigger, so I guess a different type of LED will be used. A black E2L...

    Too high MaxaBeam current consumption?

    I measured the current used by my MaxaBeam (Gen2) when hooked up to a 12V 12.5A power supply through a cigarette lighter adapter, I got 4.84A on normal mode and 10.2A on high mode. The voltage from the power supply was 12.12V at normal mode and 12.06V at high mode, that means my MB used 58.7W at...

    Warning against McGizmo clips

    I have been using one of these McGizmo clips to attach my TiCN Draco to my keychain so it is easily detachable, what I discovered yesterday was that it was a little bit too easily detachable since it detached on its own. When I got home and was locking the door I was shocked to see that my Draco...

    Upgraded Lupine Wilma 830 lm

    This thing will make our Stenlights look weak and dim :( I don't know what LEDs it will use, most of the Lupine forum is in German and my German isn't good, but from earlier posts by the Lupine engineers I got the impression it would not be based on the Cree die, so it will be interesting to see...

    I have discovered a new feature...

    When using my HD45 the other night I discovered a bonus feature that I haven't noticed before. If the light is turned on in low mode and it is almost turned all the way to high mode, then you can apply a litte pressure downwards on the head and the light will switch to high mode. Release the...

    Mittens/gloves "compatible" lights

    I'm wearing shorts and sandals today, but it may only be 2 or 3 months before the first snow is here, so it is never too early to start preparing for the winter. The most important difference between winter and the rest of the year, when it comes to using lights, is the use of mittens or gloves...

    R123 and Surefire L1

    Has anyone been successful in using R123 Li-Ion cells in their Surefire L1? I'm thinking about getting this light and would like to know if it can use rechargeables. Does the cells fit or are they to fat? I'm especially insterested in knowing if AW's protected cells will fit. Will the...

    Maxa Beam Li-Ion

    Does anyone know what the Li-Ion battery packs for the Maxa Beam cost? I will start saving for a MB and need to know how much 2 of those packs will cost me. Btw, my EagleEye/Polarion HID is great, but I really need some more throw, therefore a MB :D Sigbjoern

    Bulb cleaning

    I never touch high powered halogen bulbs when I install them, I use a piece of paper to hold them when I install them. But after a WA1185 I had installed exploded in a light I built for ZeissOEM2, I think I will have to start cleaning them with some cleaning solvent after installing them. So...

    P60 in Pila GL2?

    Can I use a Surefire P60/P61 LA in a Pila GL2? The Pila 3.7V LA only lasted for 1 hour (before the bulb became too black to be useable), so now I want to convert it to run a P60 with CR123 instead, since Pila doesn't use Halogen bulbs. If this isn't possible, then I guess I have to get a...
