    Tactical light with advanced charging features

    My ideal light would be something like a surefire stiletto but with a USB-c charging port that supports 2-way fast charging, meaning I can use it as a small emergency power bank or recharge it from my phone. For some reason most light still use micro usb or if they do have USB-c, it's a dumb port.

    New to cycling. I Inherited an 8yo Trek 7100 that came with similarly aged bontrager front and rear lights. The guys at the Trek store were quite helpful in making sure the bike was road ready, providing maintenance tips and recommended upgrading the lights for better visibility on the road...

    I wanted to get some more innova microlights but i see innova ruined them by adding stupid "features". Does anyone know of a featureless microlight with the same made in USA quality for the same price or less?

    Performance Question: Eneloop Stick booster and Mobile Booster.

    Where the mobile booster is concerned, i'm referring to the one that operates with 2x AA eneloops, not the lithium ion one. If anyone has one, i'm wondering what your impression has been using it to give a quick charge to your mobile devices. I recently got a stick booster from Japan to...

    Anyone making some affordable-ish face-melting Mag drop-ins

    With the pace that LED technology is advancing and prices are dropping, I'm wondering if anyone is making affordable-ish (light + drop-in under $100) drop-ins that use either an array of high power led's or a single monster to put out 1000+ lumens. I just want something to throw in my car that...

    Source for Gladius parts?

    My tailcap has developed a snag in the constant on position. It still works, but i'm not sure for how long and it is quite annoying. Because my light is modified with a P4, Blackhawk wants $71+shipping for a new cap.

    Anything out there that can compete with the Gladius tactical UI?

    How long has the gladius been on the market now? 5 years? I have an original and i had the LED upgraded a couple years ago to breathe new life into it. I've continued to use it, but now even the upgraded P4 emitter seems behind the times. My new quark puts out way more light and is the size...

    New backup is brighter than my primary...

    Just got a new Quark 123 tactical and, for something the size of my index finger, that thing puts out a ton of light. So much so, it totally washes out my P4 modded gladius. I still use my gladius as my primary work light since no one to my knowledge has come up with a UI as good for a...

    Quark 123 Tactical: Clip or no clip?

    So, I now know that the clip is not removable, so, does anyone have any compelling reason to get one without? I've seen somewhere that someone said that it can hinder operation of the flashlight since it rotates with the head, but I'd like to hear other users opinions.

    Does anyone make something like a Fenix with a STANDARD clickie?

    Reverse clickie's are clumsy and awkward for tactical use. I want a small backup for my gladius and a P2CE would rock if it wasn't for it's annoying switch. Ever time you light-move-light its on a different setting. I don't care if it has less features, i don't care if it has a strobe (i've...

    Any CREE or SSC weaponlights available/in development?

    I've been in the market to replace my M3X for a while with something of the LED variety, but i really don't want to spend the money on old technology. It just seems like surefire, streamlight and insight are a generation behind. Everything is still LuxIII or LuxV. Has anyone heard about...
