    Vintage Meyer Flashlight, drop in mod

    I was scouring the bowels of eBay one day and came upon this light, it was old (understatement of the millennium) stock in a hardware store and sat on the shelf for about 26 years. Until I snapped it up for about $10, it came to me with the original packaging and bulb and worked right out of...

    A few questions about making a Thor hid

    I've looked and searched prior to posting this to make sure I'm not asking something that's already been answered so forgive me if it has and I've missed it. I plan on fitting a 24v 100w HID into a Thor Colossus but before I start I have concerns about getting the beam properly focused. I've...

    50,000 Lumen (OTF) 400w HID lantern feeler thread

    As the title suggests this is a feeler thread to see if there is an interest big enough to make this a production reality. I am proposing to develop and manufacture a hand held, rechargeable, variable brightness, water resistant HID lantern. If this project sees the light of day the end...

    Has anyone had any experience with Kaidomain SKU: S006762

    This looks like a pretty cool light, 3 x 18650 with an 80mm reflector and a claimed output of 1200L. Any incan with that big a reflector is sure going to throw a nice beam. Has anyone bought one and got some useful info on it?

    This is about my 15th hotwire build and I'm starting to get over the whole 500000000 lumens for 10 seconds wow lights, I want something practical that's still bright. The cheapest & easiest bright hotwire to build is the ROP so I chose it but I don't want fiddly battery carriers, expensive...

    Kaidomain 32600 7.2v packs

    Has anyone got any experience with these battery packs yet? They are essentially a 2D LiIon 7.2v pack. I am not sure how to safely use the supplied charger and mine won't fire up the ROP high without an NTC which makes all their wonderful claims of high current constant discharge a pile of crap.

    Introducing Ropzilla... 7C 1500+L 4" reflector vintage ROP

    After reading Lux Luthor's tests on the ROP high bulb I decided to try driving my well used 3854H bulb into 8.6v territory with 7 5000mah C cells and it worked without flashing, the claimed output is about 2000L less reflector losses. The big C's don't sag under the nearly 5amps and the only...

    I'm pretty sure I have discovered a new Hotwire bulb

    With the help of NorthernLights (thanks very much for ordering and delivering to Aus for me) and AWR's Hotrater I have discovered a new superbulb that I don't think anyone has used before. Testing it in my regulated (9.5v) M-64 set up it is definitely brighter than the 1164 and costs about the...

    MAG1164-HD 1000 Lumens Regulated Incan

    Inspired by Fivemega's first tamperings with this bulb (the WA-1164) I felt I had to build one of my own, but because of how much stress 9.6v was putting on a 6v bulb I wanted it regulated, so I decided to use a Hotdriver. Hence the name I decided on is the MAG1164-HD The initial plan was 8 x...
