    Review NITECORE T4K - KEYCHAIN - QUAD-CORE 4000 lumens

    The same was said about the TUP. Way I see it, it's got a pocket clip on, so that makes it a pocket light with the facility to also clip to/hang off something else.

    [Review] Nitecore T4K (EDC-Keychain, 4000+ lumens, OLED, USB-C, 2 switches)

    I'd have to see for myself, but I have this same issue with Olights, my E18R and pretty much anything with a side switch. Problem is that surfaces inside pockets and pouches are not flat, so dig in enough to hit the switch and even sitting down or in a car is enough pressure to trigger it. The...

    Forward vs Reverse clicky & why?

    A light that always starts in Low mode, if you please. My torch may have a perfect memory, but I don't... so I'd rather not stick my head into an engine bay and burn my face off with 4,000 lumens reflecting off every flippin' shiny facet all around me, just because I forgot which mode I last...

    [Review] Nitecore T4K (EDC-Keychain, 4000+ lumens, OLED, USB-C, 2 switches)

    If it's anything like the TUP, I would suggest finding a method of increasing the button surround. I just used Sugru. It has a double lockout mode, but that can still easily get tripped in your pocket or pouch, as the buttons stand so proud of the body.

    Polished metal reflectors, for both sunlight and firelight, have been in use since the time of the Classical/Ancient World. The Lighthouse at Alexandria used reflectors, in around 250BC. There are Roman oil lamps with flip-up reflectors, too. Close them down and they extinguish the flame -...

    how did are ancesters get buy with candles

    Night-adjusted eyes can see a lot with minimal light. On a clear night with a Half Moon or greater, I can walk the dogs without the need for a torch. Also, lanterns and sconces often featured polished metal reflectors, which throw a lot more of that 1cp in a useful direction.

    USB charging ports, and the covers that protect them

    Meaning no disrespect, but taking a lighthearted prod - Isn't that a bit elitist... or does 'flashaholic' have a very tightly regulated set of criteria by which one can identify as one? Are you considered out of 'the club' if you do find a USB port of use to you? :p

    USB charging ports, and the covers that protect them

    They're for the 'Normals' who don't have external chargers and wouldn't want to mess around with things like 18650s or any other cell they can't buy in IKEA. They're for people like me who might need to recharge a torch from the in-car USB port, while travelling between site jobs (even though I...
