    Flashlights that accept 1xCR123A or 1xAA

    By the way, does anyone know if Thrunite's Archer V2 series can be lego'd? It looks like Archer V2 1A, 2A, and 1C share the same running voltage, so wouldn't it be possible to just swap the battery tubes to make it work with 1xAA, 2xAA, or 1xCR123A configuration--just like the Quark Pro/Tactical...

    Yeah, that was a mistake. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Flashlights that accept 1xCR123A or 1xAA

    I like having a 1xCR123A/1xAA light as duty backup and EDC primary. I recently lost my Quark X with 1xAA tube in Guam during FTX, and settled on a SRT3. In the process of searching for a suitable replacement for the Quark, I noticed the distinct lack of list showing flashlights that can feed...

    Looking for ideas, on how to improve grip on a Maglite 4D?

    Camo Form tape by McNett. Very grippy.

    Twilight to dusk jogger here, anyone else carry a light in hand? Why do people stare?

    I find lights of such size the perfect to run around with. No need to fumble with them in your hand. Just point the business end at targets and light them up. And, no, I got vinh's copper-mounted XM-L2 running at 4.2A. As much as I like high lumens, I also want something that can run on...

    Twilight to dusk jogger here, anyone else carry a light in hand? Why do people stare?

    That's roughly the way I run with my C2 in the dark, as well, except that the lanyard is around my wrist. Anyway, I wouldn't pay attention to others. They are probably paranoid because they have probably never seen anything like it carried by anyone before. Let 'em wonder. If you get stopped...

    Twilight to dusk jogger here, anyone else carry a light in hand? Why do people stare?

    When I'm running out in daylight, I usually stick a small light in my pocket. When it is dark or darkness is approaching, I run while holding my "big gun" light, complete with lanyard so I don't drop the thing. One such time, this happened; ledmitter_nli, which park do you run in? Running...

    Flashlights in Space

    The worst that can happen with alkalines when they go sour is they spew acidic jizz and render whatever device that they are crammed into unusable. Lithiums, on the other hand... Tend to give more spectacular results when they fail.

    Super-light, strong material options for neck-carry lights

    Re: Super-lightweight but strong material options for lights If you read the first line of my post, you'd know what I mentioned is completely relevant to the topic. Not to mention that I have provided another example of "super-lightweight but strong material" that is used in flashlights at the...

    Why is there so much lumen-age lost between the emitter and the glass?

    Re: OTF lumens vs emitter lumens? Five hours of sleep in the past 30 hours will do that. Results are fine. Just the symbols are mixed up.

    Super-light, strong material options for neck-carry lights

    Re: Super-lightweight but strong material options for lights Aluminum is light enough, strong enough, common enough, cheap enough, and an excellent thermal conductor. Steel, an ingredient in both Fibercore (link #1) and Flash Bainite (link #2), is even worse than titanium when it comes to...

    Why is there so much lumen-age lost between the emitter and the glass?

    Re: OTF lumens vs emitter lumens? The purpose of reflector is to shape the beam into desirable beam profile. If correctly designed and installed, it should be able to capture all aspect of the light emitted, and project it into a beam, which means that, aside from minor output loss due to...

    Why is there so much lumen-age lost between the emitter and the glass?

    Re: OTF lumens vs emitter lumens? Aside from reflector quality, you also have to take into consideration the texture of the reflector. Orange Peel textures will be less efficient than Smooth one of the same quality. The heavier the diffusion, the more lumen lost. Most standard reflectors have...

    Why do you catch and release flashlights?

    When I was cycling through mass production lights, I usually gave away the ones that I put into retirement. I haven't done that in a while after finally settling on my dream P60 build. Of course, I do swap the drop-in whenever newer emitters become available, but I'm happy with the...

    Upgrade from Foursevens Maelstrom G5/MMS Flashlight That I Lost?

    EagleTac G25C2 MkII has a similar UI as the Maelstrom G5, where you can set the light so that it will change its output as you turn the head.

    What event made you a flashaholic?

    No specific "event", but I've always had an affinity for gadgets and something that could produce light was fascinating to me. When I was a kid and lived in my native country, I would often visit school supply stores and pick up some batteries, copper wires and small incandescent bulbs that...
