    how to check if these 18650 are good and capacity ?

    When you insert your batteries into your charger, you can hit the 'mode' button until 'Charge test' appears. It will fully charge the batteries, discharge them, and then fully charge them again and display their mAh rating. Could take a while.

    New Release! XTAR VC8, An 8 Bay QC3.0 Battery Charger / Capacity Tester

    I like the ability to be able to charge batteries to their nominal voltage for storage - Very handy. The fact this can accommodate larger protected cells is nice, too. I noticed the input power is USB C, does this accept the USB PD standard, and if so what is the input voltage and current...

    V54 Lumintop Tool AAA with Streamlight Microstream tailcap / pocket clip

    Hey guys, I've been on quite the hiatus from the forum, I guess I got burnt out but I've rekindled my love of flashlights lately. A few years ago Vinh was modifying Lumintop Tool AAA's, and I picked one up. It runs on a 10440 and is a real little lumen monster. My major complaint was the pocket...

    #4 FOURSEVENS Quark Smart QSL !

    I actually shelved this light until today, when I thought I'd head over here to see how the firmware updates were going, and I'm glad I did. Very nice work with the firmware update!

    I really hope these quirks get worked out in a software update. I'm still optimistic this can be done.

    Lightweight headlamp

    I've been eyeballing the HL50 and zebralight single CR123 headlamps for a few weeks. The only reason the red output mode is important to me is because the Marine Corps has a thing for it in 'tactical' situations. Thanks for all of the input thus far.

    The lighter the better, but I'm open to all suggestions. Ideally, under 4oz

    Lightweight headlamp

    So, I just returned from what I can only describe as the most trying and miserable field op of my life during my five years in the Marine Corps. We were in the mountains of Vermont, with way too much gear, in some pretty adverse conditions. To save on weight I took with me my S1 Baton (which...

    Check out the Quark Smart, which when the app is released shortly, will allow you to do what you're asking.

    Anyone else gathering necessities (food, water, etc.)?

    I don't think there's anything wrong with being prepared for a natural disaster and short term scenarios. I think many people are disillusioned when it comes to long term scenarios there, where the stuff really hits the fan. I know a few preppers who have become so absorbed by prepping, that...

    Best or worst way you killed or lost a light?

    In all likelihood, I left it laying around. There's a saying in the Corps - "Gear adrift is a gift', which basically means, don't leave your crap laying around or it's fair game.
