    September 2010: lights you bought this month

    That preon revo keeps saying, "Buy me!!!" It looks like an upgraded fenix e01 but what inside is what really blows my mind.:poof: Anyways I have always looked at the coast lenser models and thought they were great with the advertised runtimes and lifetime warranty. Then the other day I was...

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    Same here as I have wondered this same thing. As I didnt want to make the same assumption as the Maratac and itp lights. I would guess not as the photon has a rich UI and the blackburn only has a strobe and an on setting. Dont want to go ahead and assume...:shakehead

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    Its a great light but doesnt come with the rich features of the rex, freedom or xlight. The blackburn flea only comes with a flash/strobe or on as this is pretty boring but seems to be strictly for a bike rider. Then again it states 40 lumens for 5hrs which seems over stated as you cant get that...

    Rex Accessories At Photon Light

    i seen that too and the wait is finally over and would like to see one of these kits in action as the clip for the light is awesome. then again they could have just beefed up a photon freedom clip so you can direct the light anywhere. Also wonder how long it takes to charge via solar? Its is...

    Dont forget nichia 5mm's as these are relatively expensive and hard to source here in the US of A.:grin2:

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    great point!:twothumbs As for dropping this light, the panels will not break. They test quality solar panels with a 50lb weight hooked up to a rope and swing it at this and it usually takes about 10 tries to get the panel to even break. The quality manufacturers take serious pride in...

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    Couldn't have said it better! Alot of people have the conception that a new technology is going to have better implications right off the bat as to meed and exceed current ones. First of all we are on the grid so these do not really apply to us, we do not have to get our own water, kill our...

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    Thanks for clearing this up. As the light I had used was from a year ago and was released to haiti and ghanna residents for testing and it was the original large model. This does have the two colors of leds, as its great to hear that they have a nice light as the original was ok. Also, does the...

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    The light I was referring to was the original large bogo light. If you have the mini then its changed the leds. I am 100% sure the larger one had used blue spot 5mm's and green flood 10mm leds. The smaller one uses all the same size leds and has white light, sorry for not clearing this...

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    5 years is a long time. The only power-storage device that doesn't have a rapid rate of decay is an ultracapacitor but its capacity is no where near a nimh or lithium battery. There has to be a trade off. The typical li-ion is full use will last 2-3 years but when using here and there it should...

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    These are pretty bright light and i would say they are 30-40 lumens and have a li-ion internal battery and can use 2-2016 or 2032's for backup in the tailcap. They have them for 9 bucks at jr.com with super cheap shipping too. As for the thermoelectric and photovoltaic comment, keep those...

    nightstand and car flashlights

    I would like to suggest the maglite xl100. It has the dependability of a typical maglite and its user configurable. It has a specific feature you are looking for. Its called the nite lite feature, when set the light will dim when set down and when picked up again it will resume to full...

    SOLAR Charged Lights ???

    I have been wondering this to since day one. Also was wondering if the solar and usb kit from the blackburn will work? Its sure taking along time but im sure it will be worth it as the photon rex kicks sooo much but and is with me at all times. They should make a photon freedom rechargeable...

    Alternative battery

    Looks like a great idea as its good to see alternatives being built or even being thought of. 1) There is the eneloop 2AA usb power pod that you could charge through usb and then can be a power device as well. The only thing you would have to do is pick a usb voltage led driver and then solder...

    What light is in YOUR bug out bag?

    Its hard one to toss out there as most have already posted but going to throw a couple out there that would be on the top. 1) My absolute top and number one pick. My maratac aaa stainless and have three eneloop tones in the pill bottle case it came in, and one of these would be in the light to...
