    Reliable make/model/source for LiFePO4 cells in 16340 (RCR123) size

    I just ordered an Xtar VP-2 charger, and I'd like to try out some LiFePO4 cells in my lights that take 16340 cells, but don't handle the higher voltage of LiCoO2 chemistry very well. I realize I'll be taking a big hit in terms of capacity, but in general I'm looking to use these lights around...

    Smoke alarm powered by CR123A

    I'm shopping for photoelectric smoke alarms, and I saw a "Micro" model from First Alert (P1000, ~$20 each) which runs on CR2 lithium primary batteries. It's appealing to get multiple years of service from each battery change, and also to avoid issues associated with leaking alkalines. Although...

    Sold/Expired TRADED!: Inova XO3 NIB (200 lumens)

    [/URL]Inova X03 by Richard Rhodes, on Flickr[/IMG] I recently received this light as a gift, but I don't care for the 2xCR123 form factor. Still unopened, but the packaging allows for activating the switch, so I'm sure that it works. 2 modes, 200 lumen high. I suspect this is not the latest...

    Quark Click owners, please help me out

    How long does your Quark Click need to be off in order to memorize the previous mode? I read a description (by Reppans) of the UI that says .5 seconds off or longer will memorize, and shorter than .5 seconds off will advance to the next mode. Otherwise there has been remarkably little posted...

    Help me choose my last flashlight

    ... well, maybe not my LAST flashlight, but I'm drawing a line in the sand and have decided that if I buy another one after this, I have to give away or sell one of the current collection. So in that sense, this is a big flashaholic milestone for me =). As much as I enjoy looking at the new...

    1xCR123 light for camping... anything comparable to Olight S10-L2 w/ these criteria?

    I recently acquired an Atom AL headlamp, which I like very much and will bringing with me on my next camping trip. However, the Atom is my first CR123 light, and I'd like to pair it with a small, relatively inexpensive light with a reflector that runs off the same power source. I'm not looking...

    Zebralight H502c L2

    I was just looking at Zebralight's website, and they have new headlamps in stock... an "L2" version of their Luxeon-based lamps. I'm specifically looking at the H502c model (Item # ZLH502c-2), and the changes since the old 502c that are immediately obvious are: The battery tube on this new...

    Lighten7 Conve A1A

    I enjoy 1xAA lights, and came across this product while browsing the website of an online retailer: I'm unfamiliar with the manufacturer, and found no significant commentary when searching the LED Flashlights forum. Does anyone have experience...

    Questions on premium headlight bulbs, and impressions of strandard Flosser halogens

    I have a 1998 Volvo S70, and have been using Sylvania Xtravision H7 bulbs for a while now with good results. There is no reason I've been using them other than convenience (Sylvania is what's for sale in the Walmarts and AutoZones around here). I had a headlight bulb burn out today, and picked...

    Circuit "noise" in 1xAA lights: EagleTac D25A, Nitecore MT1A, and Fenix LD12

    Circuit "noise" in 1xAA lights: EagleTac D25A, Nitecore MT1A, and Fenix LD12 I've been looking for a decent 1xAA light in the $40-$50 range, and I keep reading reviews of (what otherwise seemed like) good contenders talking about circuit noise, especially in the lower modes. Specifically, 1)...

    Incandescent bulb suggestions for 5D Maglite running on 6AA NiMh Eneloop

    [I tried posing this in the modders forum, but haven't gotten any replies, so I'm trying here...] I've settled on a cheap and easy method to put 6AA Eneloops into my 5D Maglite using assorted PVC plumbing bits, -- and I'm under the impression that might provide a very modest gain in output...

    Incan bulb suggestions for 5D Maglite conversion to 6AA

    I've been reading up on the various Maglite mods that folks have documented on CPF, and I'm at once impressed and overwhelmed. My initial goal is very modest -- to replace the heavy D cells with easily-procured, rechargeable AAs. I've settled on a cheap and easy method to put 6AA Eneloops in...

    Convertible 1xAA and 2xAA light with neutral white tint

    By convertible, I mean it comes with (or there is readily available as an accessory) an extension tube or alternate body tube so that the same head and tailcap can run on either 1xAA or 2xAA. Examples I've been looking at are: 1) Olight S15 Baton XM-L2 (~$45, free shipping from Amazom) Pros...

    Describing LED tint and CRI to a non-flashaholic

    I'm trying to help my brother choose a new headlamp, and I've narrowed it down to the Zebralight H502. However there are several emitter choices, and I'm trying to explain them. Have I done a good job of explaining this in an unbiased way? I'd also be curious to hear if I've gotten anything...

    Nichia 219 in Xeno E03 V3

    I'm looking at the Xeno E03 v3, and noticed that it comes with an optional Nichia 219 emitter. I'm new to the benefits of this LED, but after doing some reading I'm gathering that it is (was?) well regarded in illuminating a broader band of spectrum (i.e., better color rendering) than some of...
