    Lookee what I got today....

    I wanted one of Vinh's V10rVn Ti's but got cut off due to the supplier pricing and the sale was ended. But something came up via PM that I bit on and glad I did. This little thing is both an amazing performer, and beautiful as well as a limited run. My very first titanium piece, V10rVn Fiat...

    Nitecore Intellicharger I4 compatibility with IMR cells

    I've sprung for a light that I need to use IMR 16430 cells instead of RCR123. The i4 charger is my first serious charger, and has done a great job with my Li-ion Eagletac 18650, 17670, and 14500 cells as well as my Eneloops. This new light will be my first IMR cell purchase. Is the i4 good for...

    Protection circuit cutoff.

    I was running my SF C2 with an M61, single 17670 AW protected cell tonite. I ran the light probably longer than I should have and I noticed the light getting dimmer. Using the light as an overhead area light hanging with a Xeno diffuser. Anyway, light was getting pretty dim. I pulled the cell...

    I got a good laugh tonight!

    Nightwalking in a campground tonite. Headed down by the lake to spot bullfrogs and whatever else I could see and play with some lights. I had my Xeno E03 running an eneloop in a headband just casually checking out the shoreline. A guy in am adjacent campsite by the lake asks me what I was...

    XTAR H1 Commander

    Not a detailed review, but just some initial observations. My unit arrived today, fit and finish seem very good and the H1 feels very well made in general. The tailcap feels a bit cheesy and light in construction, Smooth matte anodizing seems uniform and black as coal. The clicky switch feels...

    17670 in 18650 lights?

    Can you run a 17670 cell in a light designed for 18650 without problems? I know runtime wont be up to par but it wont damage the cell will it? Even if the emitter is drive pretty high lile 4.2 amps? Sent from my SCH-S720C using Tapatalk 2

    Good score?

    I picked up a LNIB Sunwayman T20CS with all the acessories original to the light for $40 bucks on CPFM. I think its a steal. I hope so. Never had a Sunwayman but from what Ive read its a nice compact thrower. All my lights sofar are floody-beams with mid-throw hotspots. What do you guys...

    Struggling with a decision here. I'm thinking abooit either buying a Surefire 6p host bored for 18650 amd picking up a Malkoff M61 dropin. Or other option is just getting a Malkoff MD2 turnkey. Torn between the two. Can somebody steer me with pros/cons of either option? Im fairly new at this...

    Thinking about my first Malkoff....

    Eyeballing the Malkoff website last night. Considering an MD2 turnkey to keep it simple. 300 lumens does not sound real powerful considering my Fenix Pd32 has a 700+ burst mode. What is so special about the Malkoffs aside from that its a small USA firm which is awesome, and the drop in heads...

    Own 2 good headlamps.....going for a third.

    I have a Zebralight H51 NT out to ZL for repair/replacement. I love that damn torch. It's my meat and potatoes HL, and I'd buy another in a heartbeat. I use my headlamps every day. I ordered an H502 daylight to use while my H51 is out for repair. I love this one too, but it's just a floody vs...

    2nd Gen Eneloops and Eneloop XX's vs. standard white Eneloops

    Hi all. New to Eneloop usage in general. I purchased my first set of Eneloops about a week ago and have been charging and using them, they are much better than the Energizer NiMh's that I've been using to date. Much higher output and longer lasting without a doubt. The first set I purchased...

    Trashing Alkaline batteries

    Please dont laugh but I just learned how to use a multimeter to read battery voltages. Common AA,AAA, C & D are 1.5 v. At what voltage level do you folks trash them? And how about 9v batts too? I'm going through a big pile of alkaline household batteriea with my meter to determine what to...

    Noob wants a compact blaster.

    Klarus RS11 or Fenix LD41??? What say ye? Pros,cons, opinions? I'm liking both these lights, specially the Klarus. I think I like the rechargeable plug in feature along with the ability to drop in a fresh battery. I'm looking at a Nitecore Intellicharger, will this unit handle the Klarus...

    New member, Zebralight comments and battery questions

    Hi all. Been lurking the forums for a while and decided to sign up. I've been an avid headlamp user over the years for camping and daily household activities, working in the basement etc. etc. Candlepower forums turned me on to Zebralight headlamps. I bought my first H51 Neutral Tint about 2...
