    Rundown of Gerbers new line up

    JerryM; I have a growing list of 3D CGI apps and non-free stuff for Poser to get, another for computer hardware, and another for flashlights, headlamps, and related items. All have a habit of growing. My income is $394 per month, SocSec Disability, with a spendable amount (after expenses) that...

    Why are we all here?

    I always liked flashlights. However, given that they were for many years an unchanging technology in at least the basics, it became merely a tool. The advent of the White LED (Nichia) changed that Paradigm forever. When I heard of the CC Trek Light from C. Crane, I had to have one. I have been...

    Rundown of Gerbers new line up

    Oh, darn!! Several more lights to get. That Trio looks real interesting to me. I love my Ultra, so if it does provide as much or more light as the Ultra, and 3 to 4 times the runtime, then it is worth getting. Particularly if it is made to CMG's exacting standards or better (for rugged usage).

    emergency kit light

    I can't argue with your reasoning, Stanley. The Inretech 2AA adapter (white) that goes in a 2AA Minimag, and uses 2 Lithium AAs, would also be an excellent choice for this emergency kit.

    emergency kit light

    Stanley, that could be due to a weak battery also. Of my 123A only lights, the X5T would be used the most where runtime was of greater need than brightness.

    emergency kit light

    Personally, I would go for the longer runtime (X5/X5T), unless you emergency needs required longer throw.

    Welcome to CPF! The incan bulb gives you throw. The KL1 gives you longer runtime (somewhat), and it won't burn out, like regular bulbs do. Personally, I would say the KL1 would be better for EDC. However that sort of thing depends on your specific EDC needs. I EDC the Infinity Ultra, since it...

    Discontinued flashlight that you love

    Me too: Arc LS Rev1. I have 2, 1 white 2nd, and 1 Cyan 1st. Only one 1AA pack, though.

    Why do you carry?

    I carry a light just in case the power dies. No more need than that.

    Why Incand better than LED under foggy situation?

    Re: Why Incand better than LED under foggy situati Remember that Amber fog lights on vehicles are not so much for the driver to see with, as others to see the oncoming vehicle!!!!!!!!!! This is why they need to penetrate further than standard headlights. I get very annoyed at drivers with the...

    In This Case 3 is One

    Try the Infinity Ultra and a Lithium AA. That ought to be reliable and cheap enough for your cash flow.

    The Ideal Light - You Can Hold It In Your Mouth

    Re: The Ideal Light - You Can Hold It In Your Mout When I leave the house and I am wearing a ballcap, I have a ready made impromptu headlamp with my Infinity Ultra. Just unhook from belt loop and clip on the brim of the cap. In winter, I would probably take my Adventure Light Header 2 in my...

    Greatest Failure Concern

    Incan bulb failure drove me to LEDs. Now, it is battery drainage for the hungry lights (L4). Easily solved with rechargables (to do list).

    Best LIght for Newbie

    The old style Legend LX is the best, since it is focusable.

    Not all twistie switches unscrew to turn on. Tektite and Princeton Tec are 2 companies that use the 'screw it down' to turn on method. If you are going to have a light that is submersible capable (not necessarily Dive), then you want something with less chance of malfunction in the switch area...

    I Think the BEST flashlights are:

    Actually, I would call an icandescant/LED combo, a hybrid, not something like the Yukon HL, which is all LED, although 2 different types. I happen to really love my Guide Gear 3C Aluminum 1 watt Luxeon flashlight, even though the beam is not absolutely perfect. I see Long Runtime has a...

    Flashaholism to the rescue!

    [ QUOTE ] JasonC8301 said: paulr - I would mostly rely on LED's because they don't blow like bulbs. Run time is also a very important factor. I want something that provides modest flood light for dark adapted eyes and really long run time also has to be CR123 powered. My godfather does have a...

    Newbee Fast Becoming Addicted

    Arc is a small company at this point, with smaller production runs. The founder and owner is a perfectionist. The stuff that golden gadgets carries are more mass production than Arc's products. If you want premium Quality, you pay Premium prices. It will take me 2 months of saving to be able to...

    Newbee Fast Becoming Addicted

    Mike of Inretech makes really good points. Sometimes brightness is less desirable than Runtime. Finding a balance between the two is not easy. The Inretech Adapter for the 2AA minimag is one that gives a balance, though on Lithium AAs only. The Inova X5T is another that gives a nice balance at...
