    Replacement for Fenix E21

    Hey guys, I've been out of the loop for awhile so I don't know what's new but my E21 has finally given up on life. It was my beater/loaner light that I'd give to my friends and family who know nothing about flashlights. I liked it because it had a nice form factor with the 2xAA configuration...

    Skarp Laser Razor - brilliant or bust?

    So I saw this "laser razor" on Kickstarter awhile back and the video really got me hyped about how awesome it could be to shave with a laser. I held back from supporting it though since they didn't actually have a video of a working prototype. Well, about a few days back I saw the video below...

    Modding My Leatherman Charge - The "ReCharge"

    I've been wanting to do this mod ever since I first saw that Leatherman came out with a plier head with replaceable cutters. It took me awhile to get around to it but I saw that others have been doing this mod successfully for years and it gave me the confidence that the Rebar head would fit and...

    Frederick Sanger dies at 95

    Not a household name I know but he well known among biologists and biochemists. He was a hero of mine when I was a kid. Only one of four people in history to be awarded more than one Nobel Prize. His work developing the dideoxynucleotide sequencing method (first reliable DNA sequncing method)...

    Quark RGB owners: thoughts and opinions

    I see a lot of threads on CPFMP about people who want the RGB brought back and as a RGB owner this is interesting to me as the RGB continues to have some kind of appeal. I actually rarely use my RGB but I have a hard time justifying letting it go because of its uniqueness and discontinued...

    Small, cap-compatible, neutral/High CRI light

    Hey guys normally I know exactly what I want but this is a bit of a different circumstance so I'm coming to you guys for help. :wave: Last year I gave a close family friend a iTP A3 EOS as a present and he has since used it as a light to walk the dogs at night with the pocket clip reversed...

    Witnessed a gruesome accident today

    Today I was driving on the right hand lane of a 4 lane city highway when I came up to a stoplight that was just turning yellow. I came to a slow stop but the motorcycle in the left lane decided to try to beat the yellow light and I heard the engine rev up and the motorcycle zipped past me. At...

    Opinions on Card Tools

    So I was thinking about buying a Victorinox SwissCard when I saw another brand, Tool Logic, and that got me thinking that there's a market in tools like these. Before I push the button on any order I was wondering what your opinions on card tools were? Do you find them worth the money...

    Hooray CR123A

    Being that this is my 123rd post I'd thought I'd make it in honor of the humble CR123A 3V lithium cell. My understanding is that Surefire pretty much pioneered the use of the 123s in flashlights and the rest is history. This may or may not be true either way I'm a little bummed about my lack of...

    ZL H31w VS ZL H31...?

    I've been looking for a good area headlamp and I think I found what I want in the Zebralight H31w - then I noticed the plain H31. I know they use a different CREE LED which explains the difference in efficiency/output but I've been torn over whether to choose the neutral white or just go with...

    Peak LED Banner Ad Mistake

    I don't want to come off as a grammar Nazi but one of my biggest pet peeves is when people use the word "your" in place of "you're". I just noticed that the Peak LED banner ad states, "If you haven't taken a peak at us recently your missing some cool stuff." Am I the only one bother by this or...

    "White" Inova X5

    Well, I was playing around with my Inova X5 today and something popped up that has previously never bothered me - the beam was a pale blue color. I know I may be expecting too much from 5mm LEDs but I've always wondered why even the "white" ones never come close to being white. I'm probably...
