    TerraLUX Lightstar 80

    I've been carrying this light for over two years everyday. It has worked flawlessly and even though I use it several times a day I only change the batteries every 4-6 weeks. I have several higher end lights but I could only own one flashlight it would be this one, no contest. This is an...

    Thanks for the help PCC, I sent you a pm regarding the adapter. In the mean time I found a light called a Lumintop L2A today at my local gun store for $45 that seems to meet all my criteria but wanted to do a little research on it before I buy. Oddly enough their price was better than what I...

    Re: Cheap eveready 1D? LED lights at Home Depot Mine just died, I tried it in an older Rayovac 3 D cell light and it did not turn on at all so I figured it was not making contact.

    I have a flashlight made by Tacstar that is called a T6 Baton light and uses 4XAA batteries. It puts out about 75 lumens and has a 1 hr run time. I think this light was discontinued in 2006 but they pop-up on ebay from time to time. Mine has a very nice beam similar to my G2 but is a little...

    Mag Xenon Disappointment

    I was also unimpressed with the mag xenon magnum star lamps when I tried them. I would recommend switching to a 5 cell krypton. The 5 cell lamp will be over driven a bit by the 6 cells and will produce brighter beam, probably a little closer to what you were expecting. Also I have found that...
