    Will the EPA EnergyStar v1.1 spec mean more 4000K LED bulbs on the market?

    The EPA EnergyStar spec v1.1 means more ominidirectional light, with marketing claimed "300 degree beam angle", and if I read it correctly, 4000K EPA certified bulbs. I hope this is what it takes to get 4000K bulbs on shelves. The Green Creative Series 4.0 looks nice...

    Curious 2015 Hyundai Sonata

    My brother rents a different car when he comes in on the weekends, and he has a new 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Curiously it has HB3 marked into the plastic housing for both low & high beams. I wonder if Hyundai uses a voltage controller/limiter to extend the longevity of the low beams, or do they...

    AA + moon mode + neutral-white

    My brother moved overseas, and seeing as cr123A is an American thing, I'd like to substitute something equivalent to his 4Sevens flashlights. So, is there anything besides the Eagletac D25A2 which has these traits? Thank you.

    Can the Zebralight silicone holder be load bearing?

    Inspired by varuscelli and his routing of the excess band to get more padding on the forehead, I changed the routing of the elastic band so that the silicone holder no longer just hangs from the band. The point of this was to avoid the indentations you get in your forehead after wearing your...

    Anything better than the Luxeon Rebel 0120? Is there a Rebel 0140

    I may have inadvertently overheated my Fenix L2D rb100 by discharging some NiMH cells by running in Turbo mode, tailstanding, and now the color has tint shifted toward solidly cool-white, and the intensity has dropped significantly. I know that there is a small Rebel 1x1mm 120, but are there...

    H1 bulb high performance options

    Seeing as the industry has installed the H9 burner in the H7 bulb format ["rallye"], what is the chance that the same burner will be installed in an H1? Baring that, what is/are the options to get 2,000 lumens or better?

    Eneloops 1800x

    So I was just looking to see if the US will ever 'officially' get the Eneloops XX, or 'Pro' in brick & mortar in the US, and I notice a little release in the new tab. Apparently 1500 times wasn't good enough, and Eneloops have been upgraded to 70% capacity retention at 5 years...

    Prognostications on when Cree MC-E based Fenix

    Does anyone know if Fenix plans on introducing a flashlight based upon a Cree MC-E, in neutral-white 4000K, that has three levels of output: say 50-250-500 OTF lumens, roughly 50-300-700mA? [that seems good according to the efficiency curve of the most recent specs...
