    HDS HDS company stopped working ?

    HDS is a solid person and Company. When in doubt, I would order more lights now than you originally ordered so that if a delay happens again at least you will have several lights in house. I think I have six HDS lights in house right now and always keeping an eye on his new LED offerings.

    You are absolutely right. Products do and should get less expensive over time with learning, efficiencies, and lower cost of inputs. Most products today are disposable. Most come with a one year limited warranty and you throw it away when it breaks - dryers, washing machines, toasters, etc...

    I purchase Henry's lights because they are assembled by Henry and his team in the United States. Imported flashlights have zero value to me for EDC. I can wait.

    HDS Rotary LED selection

    I suggest considering the SDR50. I had the 219b 4500 and 219b 4000. The SDR 5000 will give you a cleaner rendition of colors with less artifacts plus 300 lumens. The 4000 will give you a slightly tan artifact on a white surface and the 4500 will give you a slightly red rose tint on a white...

    HDS Recommendation For UI

    Program it. That is how my Executives are set-up. I get lowest level from off. I set them this way because when I wake up in the morning I want the lowest level on the first click from off.

    Opinions for $250 light

    Multi-battery management is a very serious safety issue. If this person is not using a voltmeter and not managing the labeling and use of each battery he may find himself starting his house on fire. Further, if he inhales the fumes from that fire he could permanently lose lung capacity. The...

    Picked up the Longines VHP (Very High Precision) with the white dial. Very accurate and easy to read. Loses about one second every 3 months. Not a lot of lume to keep up with my HDS Titanium Executive night time excursions. Probably will go with a new 41mm Marathon TSAR since it is so...

    For nighttime operations, dog walking and monitoring activities, purchased a used Tag Heuer WAY111a in August and sold it in November. I liked the abundant lume but the watch struck me as more of a fashion statement mostly due to the wide hands and wide dial markers. Now looking at the...

    Try to resist and you are only fooling yourself. Make a priority list of the next three HDS lights you want to have. By this time next year you will have at least one light on that list, maybe two.

    My wife gave me a HDS rotary flashlight for my birthday. She said, "do you know that is a $350 flashlight?" I said "really?" Then she said, "can you fix my (Chinese) flashlight? The wire came loose and it needs to be soldered."
