    Fenix TK75 Review including Extended Runtime Kits (2/4/6/8/10/12x18650 or 4/8xCR123)

    The old incan's didn't really kick but they were a hoot to turn on in a crowd. I would take a 3D Mag conversion fame thrower and turn it on then tell the onlookers it was a new MagLite from WAL-Mart. Go get you one.

    Fenix TK75 Review including Extended Runtime Kits (2/4/6/8/10/12x18650 or 4/8xCR123)

    You fellows crack me up. I am an old incan light builder and we have some 100 watt ++ lights with some real kick when you turn them on. I built some LED lights several years ago and they just didn't get the job done like an incan. That was then and this is now. All I can say about the TK75 is...

    Fenix TK75 Review including Extended Runtime Kits (2/4/6/8/10/12x18650 or 4/8xCR123)

    The light is so strong it kicks when you turn in on. (might be a little exaggeration)

    Fenix TK75 Review including Extended Runtime Kits (2/4/6/8/10/12x18650 or 4/8xCR123)

    Well I just got my TK75 and I love it already and it hasn't even gotten dark. The only complaint I have is it kicks so hard when you turn it on.

    Fenix TK75 Review including Extended Runtime Kits (2/4/6/8/10/12x18650 or 4/8xCR123)

    I just ordered a TK75, Fenix charger, 8 Fenix batts, and the extension kit, no tax and delivered for just under $300. I think I got a pretty good deal and this will be my first high powered LED light. I am an old incan fan and this might turn me.

    Best Incan Bulb for 9 volt applicaiton

    Much appreciated 5M. Glad to see you are still around. It has been quite a while since I have been here and I still recognize some of the old timers. Actually, I feel like the largest dummy around. I just found out these fine Li-Ion cells are primary cells and that is not what I wanted at all...

    Best Incan Bulb for 9 volt applicaiton

    Thanks darkknightlight. These are LiSO2, PTC-protected cells from HDS Systems. I have the 1185 bulb in the light right now and it looks like a regular mag light. I have a couple of other bulbs in my tool box and I am going to give them a try. This is a tough voltage to deal with. I need a nice...

    Best Incan Bulb for 9 volt applicaiton

    I have a old 1185 in a Mag 3D and some new batteries. These are D cell Li-Ion and are rated a 3 volts not 3.6. What is a good incan bulb for a 9 volt operation? Thanks

    2 Part Epoxy

    Unfortunately, during the pour two of the wires must have touched together. Now I am using a Dremel to remove hard epoxy. I did not think it was conductive either. Can't be.

    Removal of Anodizing?

    Well I have a tail cap sitting in a weak solution of Draino. How long does it take? overnight??

    Removal of Anodizing?

    Thanks very much. A really small amount of Draino in water followed by hot water should do the trick.

    2 Part Epoxy

    Now another off the wall question. After it dries is ordinary Loctite 2 part epoxy electrically conductive?? Probably not going to admit why I need to know.

    WHOA this is better than google maps and its a bit more recent with satelite

    Birds eye does not work in all areas of the country. Guess the photos haven't been taken yet. What I did not like is the Birdseye is available on military installations. That should be a no go.

    AW's Going Regulated ! W00T !

    Nope, on this one voltage in = voltage out. No cutoff either. There were some other regulators for sale a while back that regulated the voltage to suit a particular lamp and had a cutoff voltage, but they are not for sale now. AW is supposed to be working on a regulated version, but there have...

    How do you charge your hotwire?

    I have modded the tail cap with a DC plug and run wires to the battery pack or if possible the battery holder and just plug it into a smart charger. Can't do this for all battery holders, but you sure can for a custom battery pack. It is certainly nice and handy to not have to even take the...

    He was working on the controlling codes months ago. What is the status now, several months later??

    AW's Going Regulated ! W00T !

    The ones AW presently sells are not regulated but provide a soft start at 30% on the first click up to 100% on the third click. They work GREAT and I have one in a Mag85 which is one of my favorite lights. The model he is working on is regulated to a specific voltage output which will also be...
