    Back from the past...

    Hey Guys, long time no see/hear/talk/post/inquire/blah... I missed anything juicy? New LSs? New Hyperlights? New technology that would make me take out a mortgage? I've been out of here for so long, I actually saved some money! Lol... J/K... But it's nice to drop by once in a while. Been busy...

    L4 statement from SF regarding 9V compatibility

    There were a lot of talk about the compatibility of the L4 to a 9V configuration before, so after getting this message from a decided anonymous CPFer here, I'll post, verbatim, what was said: Dear [CPF Member], Thank you for the inquiry and continued support of SureFire products. The KL4...

    L4 clickie not clicking?

    Okay... A little nuisance here... It goes like this: Got the L4 today. Took it out of the box like a kid high on candy. Opened up the battery chamber to check up on the batts. Opened up the tail to check it out. Put it back in, clicked, and the cap felt sticky... Very sticky. But it clicked...

    Opalec/BB500 drain

    A few days ago, I had a couple Duracell AA batts that were running to their end in a BadBoy 500. I figured, might as well kill it between uses with the Opalec and BB500... Well, today, I didn't think the Badboy 500 would still be able to pull longer drops of milliamps from the battery, while...

    A/AA Li-Ion?

    Has anybody ripped these guys apart? And see if there are A/AA sized Li-Ions inside? I've seen them on hand, and they look somewhat small to be A-sized. So I'm assuming these guys might be AA-sized? Hmm... Why do I get the feelin' I might be the guinea pig...

    McCulloch X995

    Courtesy Strategos Int : Looks tantalizing... 10W HID, akin to UKLC100, but hopefully with a better reflector... Price ain't all that bad either... Looks like a solid build light. Maybe even upgradable higher cap NiMH and higher wattage HID lamp... Who knows. Can't wait to get one and try...

    Syria?

    Iraq, I can understand. There's more than just one justification for ousting Hussein. Syria, well, I'm not too sure about. Yeah, they support Hezbollah or other terrorist groups. They have WMD? Well, the CIA says so, but this is the CIA. But does this country really warrant being attacked...

    1/3A NiMH in Maha C401FS?

    Anyone done a custom fit for 1/3A .4Ah NiMHs and tried charging them in the Maha? I've just gotten a bunch of 1/3As and need to get them juiced up, but am not sure if firing up the grill (100 minutes mode) is a good thing for these little suckers...

    Would a dead battery harm an LED?

    Okay, the scenario: I've been trying for 4 straight days now to kill this one freaking Sanyo CR123A battery in my E1-KL1... Every time I go to sleep, I turn it on. And every time I wake up, looked at it, and thought it was dead, turned it off and back on again, and HOLA! It's still got juice...

    Recommendations for a good knife...

    Okay. You know the drill. I need some help. In choosing a knife, of course. I'm a little tired with my little swiss army knife; it's great and all for small envelops and tape, but tough cardboard and heavy rope tear it to shreds. I need a knife that can match these criteria: 1) Will never...

    POWs

    It pisses me off that our POWs are being charaded around TV individually, like some prized animal capture, while here, we're setting some of their supposed soldiers free (to go home), and keeping their POWs in camps and NOT sticking videos of their pictures across TV. It's sickening that this...

    CCrane charger anomaly

    Okay, here's the scenario... I put 4 batteries (actually 8, 2 sets of 4) I got from OnlyBatteries.com, 4 C sized NiMH 4500mah batts, into the CCrane charger around 8:30am yesterday morning. The batteries, as measured by the CCrane, had 1.28V left in all of them; quite uniformed. I then put...

    VS AND/OR VS Has anybody gotten around to reviewing or testing out these cells above, or any other high capacity NiMH Ds that's missing? Just wonderin' what everyone's opinions are on the best capacity/performing D NiMH... Making a battery purchase choice should NOT be this hard...

    The NimH's behind my Madmax.....

    Re: The NimH\'s behind my Madmax..... Obviously, it'd be best to charge them constantly, say in 5-7 day intervals if you're using it on intermittent use. If it's heavy use, you'll want to do it in 1-3 days. In any case, I've always been told rule of thumb is never ever let it drop below 1.0V...

    BB500 running at 788ma?

    Okay... Just got Waynes BB500 today, popped it into a minim$g and voila! Blinded myself. But this time, this blinding was a bit more painful... As it turns out, I'm checking the current, and it's reading 788ma! With regular alkalines, nonetheless... What's happening here? Is this supposed to...

    3x Copia 168Bs in M6???

    ...Just wondering. If I remember correctly, the M6 was running 6 123s in semi-parellel of each other; thus 9V (3 cells) at 6-cell mah ratings. So, would it be possible to drive either the MN21 or MN20 LA with 3 Copias (11.1V) without exploding the bulb? Or is this just a wet dream?

    Copia Li-Ion charger Question

    Red/Cyan-Green/Royal Blue in same light???

    Kind'a seems trivial, but has anybody ever thought about doing a light with a Red, Cyan or Green, and Royal Blue emitter in a triad assembly? Or any assembly of 3 different colors... ElektroLumens? I have to admit, it probably won't be any good of a utility light, save for the coolness factor...
