    What lights have (or will have) a ring for level control

    Well, I'm underwhelmed, solid light but it is way too big for what it is. I'll post more later. I like the control ring interface but it seems loose on this light. The light has ridges in the battery tube to accommodate AA's but it could take 123s at least. Very large diameter for a AA light...

    Dosun R1 at It is 2xAA powered AND on clearance! Max lumens are only 85 but it looks decent, and I had a credit voucher so :paypal:. Now I'm really glad I posted the question :)

    What lights have (or will have) a ring for level control

    A friend just brought me the 2009 Surefire catalog, so I know about the, possibly, upcoming Invictus. I knew about the U2 and Titan. I just noticed the JetBeam RRT series. I see that the RRT-0 has an option for AA, but as I looked around I saw a few for sale on B/S/T at CPFMP, making me...

    Preon impressions

    I can annoy many of my children by putting my PD 10 on high, even from across the room--not that I would do it on purpose :) --. I had them play with and listen to my Preon 1. Only a faint whine heard, except from the children--"Can I have one" :) --. Now that is a Preon1 not a 2 so YMMV I...

    BEST AA Flashlight available in the market

    I've been EDCing the D10 for about a year. I use it quite a bit every day. One of the big pluses of this light IMHO is that you can buy it from one of, if not the, best dealer in the CPF network. I haven't needed service for this light but in other 'problems' I've had, I haven't had a problem...

    Problem w/ Gerber Trio

    Her Tritac is now open, but is back in, an only slightly mangled package. :) It does have a tail switch, not a clickie, a pushie switch. How's a first class, delivery confirmation, swap sound? We're in MN--In USA, barely. Either PM or email, [email protected]

    Problem w/ Gerber Trio

    Well.... I try to buy lights w/ lifetime replacement. Our first LED lights were from C Crane, Tektite-rebrand, after replacing 6 lights they asked what we were doing with/to them :) We really just use them alot. The light is shipped, sorry no pics. Hey, I'm a flashaholic. Nano-lube on all...

    Problem w/ Gerber Trio

    This light is about two years old, got it as a warranty replacement then. However this one is having a problem that I find hard to believe. The threads are worn out, so worn that they won't hold the light closed. First, for those who aren't familiar with the light. Flashlight Reviews 8/2004...
