    Micro Lantern build

    Maybe I missed something, but if ur selling these I’d like to buy a couple myself. This is exactly what I’m looking for. Always have some sort of “dead” batteries in AAA, AA, or D cells around. If you don’t sell them, how hard would it be to assemble them via PCB? I’ve got basic soldering...

    Quality Warm/Neutral Headband Light

    Walmart has their version of the same one you posted. If I remember correctly they are $15~20 bucks. Nothing spectacular for flashoholics. But for the mechanics I work with they are great when working in panels and big electric motors. Does what it needs, and then move on to the next job. I...

    What happened to good 9 volt flashlights?

    I agree those Pal Lights run almost forever! Looking back at it I should have bought more. I found my Pal Light a year ago from when I bought it around 2007-08ish. Now it sits on my bedside window as a nightlight

    Ryobi diy mod help

    Just off the top of my head, and it's been a while, but have you looked at Mountain Electronics for drivers in that voltage range? I had an idea to convert a 6v lantern style battery flashlight into a low lumen <100 lumen light (which is subjective) that can have a long runtime. When I say...

    Yellow Navy Battle Lantern to LED help

    alpg88: Wow 35w HID? That is awsome! Let me understand this correctly... 3.7v x 8 => 29.6v Does the HID bulb get hot? I am under the impression that all HID bulbs get hot so I am assuming the same for this one as well. Or does the aluminum enclosure double as a heat sink? Either way thats...

    Yellow Navy Battle Lantern to LED help

    After Hurricane Dorian passes thought my area I can post a more detailed build on each light for those that are interest. I think it would be fun to see how I went about converting my first two lanterns and compare it to this commercial version. So for now I will have to leave everyone hangin...

    Yellow Navy Battle Lantern to LED help

    alpg88: Interesting link, but may I ask what is that box for hanging out in the back? I see the lantern still retains the orignal bulb. To recap on the picture I posted, the first lantern I made into LED is the second from the left with (as you can see) has nine 10mm LEDs. Mounting was not a...

    Yellow Navy Battle Lantern to LED help

    I was really hoping I could adapt a multi-mode flashlight into the Battle Lantern. Personally I think it would be cool to bring a little functionality to the light for various tasks. Some would argue the “Keep It Simple” or “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”, but I already have one and just want...

    Yellow Navy Battle Lantern to LED help

    alpg88: At first I was thinking of going that route because of all the available space in the lantern, but since I have other 18650 and 26650 lights that are capable of high output, I came to the conclusion of a genal long runtime "hurricane" or "blackout" light. The multi-mode thing would be...

    Yellow Navy Battle Lantern to LED help

    DIWdriver: Now that you mention it, I forgot to list which LED emitter I was planning on using. Lately I have been getting more and more into the high CRI lights and so far my personal experiences has been with a Lumintop 2x AAA 219b(?) pen light which wasnt too bright, and the really...

    Yellow Navy Battle Lantern to LED help

    Hi everyone I was wondering if anyone has messed with a battle lantern within the past year or so to convert to LED? I have one I modded almost 10 years ago with 5 ~ 7 10mm white LEDs from Radio Shack to use 6v. Back then it was a pretty crude mod and more of a challenge to myself to make it...

    Powertac Sabre Head Disasembly

    It was really hard to get a Macro shot of what the head looks like when taken off from the body, but there is a small gap right below the o ring. So I guessing that there are no threading and just simply glued in. I don't know if Powertac does that just to help save on machining cost and make it...

    Powertac Sabre Head Disasembly

    Its been a long while but in case anyone wanted to see how the glow epoxy turned out I took some pictures. Since I wasn't able to pull the head part, I just added the glow expoxy in between the bezel teeth and around the champfered area inside the bezel. I was very careful to just get the...

    Powertac Sabre Head Disasembly

    Thanks DrafterDan for the reply, if I have more time i may try that in the future. I had the light for almost a week and my brother called and said he is coming by the house tonight to pick it up. While I was waiting for someone to chime in I also sent Powertac an e-mail not really expecting a...

    Powertac Sabre Head Disasembly

    Hey everyone! I was looking on the web trying to figure out how the head of the Powertac Sabre can come apart? I don't see the two holes where you can unscrew a retaining ring like some lights. It's a brand new light for my brother and don't want to screatch the finish if it's one of those...

    GXB20 – Homemade CC Programmable Single-Cell XHP50 Boost Driver

    Can't wait to see how all this turns out! I can't speak for everyone but I personally would like to see a 4 - mode w/ memory function something like this: "Turbo Mode" where it will run in overdrive anywhere from 30sec - 2min then drop down to 95% output "High" @ 95% output "Medium" @ 80%...
