    What's the latest in magnetic variable ring type flashlights?

    I prefer flashlights that I can control the output on and those I found the best are the "magnetic ring" types which can slowly be ramped up in output as you twist the ring. Unfortunately, there aren't very many small lights that do this, namely small AAA or AA size lights, so the next best are...

    Never thought I would be impressed with a store bought flashlight.

    Okay, generally, store purchased flashlights aren't as good as those which are usually purchased online. However, I got curious at Target, the other day, and picked up the Energizer Vision HD 2AA, . . . which has three small LEDs with two small throw-ish optics, and one flood optic. I have to...

    Sold/Expired Considering having someone put an XP-L in my Jetstream RRT01

    I'm looking for someone to put an XP-L [I have one on the substrate] in my Jetstream RRT01. Who can do this? Vinh? Will the XP-L work with the existing reflector? Will the output be worth the money? FYI, I run a rechargable in this light. Thanks for your consideration.

    Need input. Running XML2 LEDs on a 12v Power Supply?

    I was thinking of a "house lighting" project using a 12v 300mA Power Supply to power the XML2 emitter [thinking of going with 3 of them, . . . 4 volts each, running them in series]. Would this power supply be inadequate to power the LEDs to any significant brightness? I plan on putting them on...

    Question about LEDs in gun lights...

    An owner of a local store, that sells flashlights, said that XM-L LEDs won't hold up to the recoil of a gun like the XR-E LED will. I personally think he's full of baloney, but what do you say? I think it may be that HIS lights use XR-E LEDs in his tacticool [Hellfire] flashlights. Comments?

    Is there a CR123 battery drainer available [LED]?

    I have a bunch of used CR123 batteries that need a lighting device to squeeze out all the remaining power out of them. I'm looking to get something that is simple that just hooks to the battery. Probably using a lower power LED [or two. . . or three] would be best. Let me know if there is...
