    Night vision (not the goggles)

    As I’ve gotten older, I have had increased issues with seeing at night. This occurs mostly when I’m driving, or when there is another light source distracting my field of vision. I find it harder for my eyes to adjust to what I may be focusing on. For this reason, I have been finding lights...

    Civil Twilight distances

    I was watching a video review by The Urban Prepper on the Thrunite Catapult V6. It was one of the more detailed reviews I’ve seen, and it had very practical details. (Not all detailed reviews are practical). One detail that interested me was his use of Civil Twilight distances in rating a...

    2xAA 800-000 lumen lights?

    Hey Guys, Does anyone know of a true 800-1000 lumen light that takes 2xAA batteries? The Manker T02 is the only one know, but I don’t like the form or the UI..

    Thrunite switch cap replacement

    Hey Guys, Has anyone replaced the electronic switch cap on the TC20 or TC15 with the supplied extra rubber cap? I need a more tactile feel than the current metal cap, but I cannot figure out how to unscrew the ring that holds it in place. It looks like it needs a special tool. I tried to...

    A little disappointed with my Manker Light purchases.

    Hey Guys, Haven’t been in the forums for a long time, but I’ve kind of “caught the bug” again and have made several purchases. Two of which were Manker lights, particularly the T02 and the MK41. I’ve been moving away from 18650’s and the 123’s,and have found lights that can take 14500’s and...

    Have run times significantly improved?

    Hey Guys, I haven’t posted anything for about two years. I kind of got burnt out with the discussions that seemed to devolve into arguments all the time. I owned more flashlights than I needed, and was caught up in the lumen race. I found over time I never used or needed much more than 1000...

    Bark River Knives

    So, I have a semi-decent collection of knives. Some SOGs, an Esse 3, Fallkniven F1, some Buck knives, etc. i think the most I spent was on the Fallkniven and Esee. About $115 each. I like all of my knives, but I felt they were all lacking a little. I couldn't quite put my finger on it...

    A little disappointed with Eagletac

    I know this is minor, but I bought the D25A2 Tactical. It's a great light. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice 2xAA light However, unlike the two G25C2's and T25C2 I have, it did not come with the rubber tail stand boot. I looked back and it wasn't in the description, so it's...

    Eagletac D25A2 Tactical have an itch to buy it...

    Has anybody picked this light up yet? I don't know why, but I have an itch to buy it. Could just be that I have't purchased anything in a while. Although, I did just buy two Maratac Copper AAA lights... Lol. But, before that, it has probably been a good six months since I have picked...

    Maratac AAA Rev 3

    I've been thinking I would like to get the copper Maratac AAA light. It would go nicely with the other copper items on my keychain. However, I can't seem to find much on this company. Do they have their own website? I see they are sold at County Comm. Do they make these? Also, are there...

    Knife vs Multi-tool perception

    I was wondering if people carry a multi-tool because it's just "easier." I'll explain. I have at times carried a folding blade with me. I like to have a knife with me. I find uses for it all the time, around the house, at work, etc. It always comes in handy. Self-defense is the last...

    2x14500 lights

    Just wondering, has anyone ever seen a flashlight that would take two 14500 batteries? I have kind of taken to using 14500's over 16350's as I can also use an AA in a pinch if I needed. I like using li-ion, but I find the CR123/16350 lights a little less practical. (Just my opinion, not...

    D25a clicky in AAA

    I was curious if anyone would be interested in a rear clicky AAA that's like the Eagletac D25a clicky. My favorite AA light is the D25a clicky. I often wonder why there are no lights like this in AAA. They are all either twisty lights or the rear click lights don't have a recessed button. An...

    D-Cell batteries and charger suggestions

    Hey guys, I have some Tenergy LSD D-Cells, they seem pretty good. Their capacity is only 8000 mah, which is almost half the capacity of a good D-cell primary. I was wondering if there are any other quality LSD battery brands someone could suggest. I have a Titanium Innovations charger...

    Has anybody used the UST flashlights?

    I purchased a couple of Ultimate Survival Technologies flashlights. I wanted something that was reasonably inexpensive, yet decently built. I also liked them because they are orange, so it's clear they are for emergency use. This way my family knows to keep them in their designated space...

    Love the Eagletac D25A, but....

    I love my D25a. It really is perfect for me. There is just one little thing I don't like. It's doesn't have a momentary switch. It's not the worst thing, but i really like momentary. Below is what I like about the D25a. If I could find these features in another light, but has momentary I...

    Thrunite Neutron 2A V2, EXTREMELY HAPPY with follow up service!!!

    I am chalking my recent dissatisfaction with Thrunite customer service up to a miscommunication. After posting about my experience, Dave at Thrunite contacted me personally, and immediately offered to replace my light! Customer service was quick to respond, and sent me a new light right away...

    2-bay Universal Charger for Travel?

    Hey everybody, I am interested in a universal charger for traveling. I currently use a Nitecore D4, but it's really too bulky sometimes. I don't use the charger often when I travel, but I do like to take a charger with me. The batteries I most use are Eneloops, 16340 and 18650's... Can any...

    Thrunite 2A V2, VERY DISAPPOINTED

    I contacted Thrunite about the problem I am having with battery drain from the off position on the Neutron 2A V2. After several emails, they confirmed that the batteries will drain FROM THE OFF POSITION within one to two weeks. They also claimed that it says in the manual to remove the...

    JetBeam WL-S1/WL-S2 FAIL 1xcr123, 18650, AA, 14500 or 2xcr123 blah blah blah

    Ok, where do I begin. I have never had any experience with JetBeam flashlights before, but my first impression is not good. I purchased both the WL-S1 and WL-S2 flashlights. Right off the bat, the marketing material, and descriptions on the boxes are terribly misleading. I had an idea this...
