Note: the 18650 is not chargeable in the light. Glass window! Programmable (Streamlight tentap). Recharged...

    Streamlight Stinger LiIon battery now available.

    Streamlight has just released a 2200MAH li-ion battery stick that fits in the Stinger series of lights. Interestingly, it uses the normal or fast charge charging cradles. I'm guessing they are using an 18650, but in a physical shell to fit the Stingers. Overall, pretty cool update. It's part...

    Streamlight SuperTac has arrived

    What a weird light. Streamlight took the body of the TL series and connected it to a turbo head (that incorporates a massive heatsink). GOOD: --Streamlight quality vs. price. --FANTASTIC switch. Easy for momentary, but needs a good pushing for constant on. Probably the best clickie I've felt...

    NEW Inova T3...quick overview.

    I picked up a newest version Inova T3. GOOD: --Amazing output. At least double as compared the second generation T3 (3 cell, reflector K2). Output, for comparison, flood is equal to a Fenix T1, with a nice hotspot that transitions into a tight middle, though not as focused as a T1 or TIR based...

    LAPD's new flashlight

    Chief Bratton has decided that the LAPD needs a propretary designed light, so they turned to Pelican, designated model 7060. I haven't seen pics, yet, but it is an LED with a momentary tail cap switch AND a body on-off clickie switch and Li-Ion rechargeable battery. Looks like it's a nylon...

    Please, no more of the You Tube/Think Geek movies with the modded mag burning the newspaper. There's a thread already posted about it, and the duplicate postings are too much. This is the original thread: thanks.
