    15,000 lumen exterior area light flashing in cold temps

    Just swapped the defective unit for a new one and it works just fine. Tossed it in the freezer for a couple hours to see how it handled the cold:)

    15,000 lumen exterior area light flashing in cold temps

    It's this one. I'm gonna swap it out for the same one and see what happens but I'm guessing it'll do the same thing. Gonna grab the 10,000 lumen model also just in case...

    15,000 lumen exterior area light flashing in cold temps

    Just installed a 15,000 lumen dusk to dawn LED area light in Michigan and it flashes off and on when the temp drops below 40 degrees. If I bring it in the house for a while it works just fine. Any idea which component is the culprit? The output is amazing but it's useless right now. Was...

    Home Depot Closeout Lights

    Some Lowes stores have the Utilitech 3C on clearance for $7.50. Nice torch that seems to have better build quality then any of my Defiant lights. There's also a 9AA 1000 lumen triple for $10.00 but i didn't care for it.

    your suggestions: Most lumens in a 30$ish light?

    Thorfire C-8. Pretty inexpensive and I think they can take 123's and 18650's.

    C8

    Big reason why I went for the Convoy was the warmer tints available. Love the 4C tint of my Convoy C8's!!!!!

    Woop my convoy S2+ arrived, I did not expect this!

    I got a couple fake red ones from Gearbest back in August but they did eventually send me two real ones. Fantastic lights and I absolutely love the 4C tint. I also grabbed a C8 from them with the same tint.

    Definition of a Budget Light?

    Me too. It's truly amazing what you can get these days for under 20. I'm blown away by the Convoys I just got for less then 15 bucks each.

    Favorite Buget light.

    I just got the C-8 and it's really really nice!!! I went for the XML T6 4C and love the warmer tint. Think I paid around $14.00 for it.

    Favorite Buget light.

    After finally getting a real red S2+, I just ordered a blue one. The S2+ is really an amazing 18650 torch for the price.

    Favorite Buget light.

    I really like the Hugsby XP1(1 aaa) and Convoy S2+(1 18650). Waiting on a Convoy C8.

    XTAR RC1 Nightwalker ( Review )

    Love the idea of a single 18650 flashlight and charger combo!!!! Nice that you can just pop in a spare 18650 when she starts to die. So all my micro USB phone chargers will NOT work with this????

    Woop my convoy S2+ arrived, I did not expect this!

    I don't have a real S2+ to compare mine to. Can you expand on the build quality? Threads? Wall thickness? I may try to find a real one.

    Maratac AAA pocket clip (need stronger)

    I just tried the very sturdy clip from one of my Hugsby XP-1's. It fits on the Martac head nice and tight but then I have to twist the body for off and on. I guess it will do for now cuz I was getting sick of it falling off my ball cap. Can't even count the number of times it fell off while...

    Woop my convoy S2+ arrived, I did not expect this!

    Pretty sure the red s2+ from Gearbest is a fake but it's a really nice fake. It's got a beautiful warm tint and really cranks out the lumens on high. I ended up ordering two more!!!!

    Maratac AAA pocket clip (need stronger)

    Has anyone ever found a nice strong pocket clip for the Maratac AAA lights? I like to clip mine to a ball cap for headlight duty and the stock clip ain't happening.

    Review: Convoy S2+ (the red one!) – Fantastic 18650 EDC

    Well this makes 3 fakes I have gotten in the last month. I'm pretty happy with the fake S2+ and don't mind that I have two more on the way. The two fake Hugsby XP-1's I got are pretty bad but I can give them away to my enemies!!!! So now the Chinese are making fakes of their own flashlights???:)

    Review: Convoy S2+ (the red one!) – Fantastic 18650 EDC

    Thanks G, The one I received has an alloy retaining ring so it might be a fake. Quality feels pretty good and the light functions fine so far. Kinda wish I didn't have two more on the way from Gearbest if these are fakes!!!!

    Review: Convoy S2+ (the red one!) – Fantastic 18650 EDC

    Finally got the red S2+ I ordered from Gearbest. $13.00 shipped is a steal so I just got done ordering two more. This is the compact 18650 light I've been looking for!!!!!!!! Perfect size, tint and beam pattern for all my hunting and fishing adventures. Pretty amazing what 13 bucks will get...

    OE Vehicle Lighting That Makes You Go "Ugh"

    I know most on here preach that vehicle lights are not decorations but, for the life of me, I can't figure out what the led light bars on the front of my 2011 Ford Edge are for!!!!
