    Collimated light - 1" beam at 100' feet - little to no scatter

    Does 1" mean 1 inch or 1 foot. Technically it should be inch, but I am just checking. 1 foot would be pushing it, even my old Inova X0 won't do that at 10 feet, and that is all hotpot no spill. 1 inch will be impossible. By bounce do you mean reflect? Sounds to me that you need to look at...

    What Should I add to My Small Collection

    Headlight - I am looking at a Zebralight H502d, but they have plenty to choose from. For the keychain a Veleno Designs Quantum D2 - takes a 10180 battery, but comes with it's own USB charging cradle. Can't say for the AAA or 123

    Recommendations for: Batteries & flashlights

    Batteries - I would go AA for ease of supply, especially if you are staffing for emergencies. My preference for rechargeable are Eneloops or other low self discharge/pre-charged followed by lithium and then alkaline. If storing, normal rechargeable are no good. Also store the batteries next to...

    Budget bike light

    I partially agree with that, however I personally would reserve head-mounted "seeing by" lights for off-road use only. There is nothing wrong with having a head mounted "be seen" light though, so long as it is not dazzling to oncoming traffic. I actually run a hub-dynamo on my bike, coupled...

    Budget bike light

    Firstly, where do you cycle? Urban/lit or rural/unlit? If the former, you only really need lights to "be seen" as the street lighting should be more than ample to "see by". In this case look at the planet bike superflash for the rear and blaze for the front. If the latter, or a mixture of...

    EDC-able inspection light suggestions please.

    Not worried about them being headlamps, I want to get the best beam pattern and colour definitions to spot defects quickly. I'm not paint matching, but I do like my tech ;)

    EDC-able inspection light suggestions please.

    No, I have the LD05 but was also looking at the E05. Never said I didn't trust them, said I was worried due to reports I had read (like this one for instance: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?367253-Bang!-2nd-Zebralight-failure-tonight-H502d). Well I'll look at the LD12...

    EDC-able inspection light suggestions please.

    OK. In the market for a new inspection light. I am a bus driver, and during the winter months it is obviously dark outside when I take the bus out of the yard to start my duty. Part of my job involves checking the vehicle for defects (a LEGAL requirement), and as such I want a good light for...

    Streamlight Stylus Owners - NOT the pro

    Cheers. You have confirmed my suspicions that the Stylus is only really suitable for small indoor tasks. I did mention the Preon Penlight above. How does it compare to the Fenix LD05 in both size and output.

    Streamlight Stylus Owners - NOT the pro

    Looking around for a nice little inspection light that will fit in my shirt pocket and not be too heavy. I have to admit that the Preon Penlight seems really nice, but might too big for what I want. I already own a Fenix LD05, which while adequate for the task is a little bulky. Could anyone...
