    Aladdin "Corinthian" c1935

    Nice find I have several modern reproductions. Biggest problem is finding fuel that does not smell up the house. And do not light the lamp and then fall asleep! Once warmed up they run until the fuel is gone.

    higher the CRI, higher the red region?

    Here is a long and interesting thread on "CRI of White LEDs". Some where else I read that High CRI means, take % black body radiator at 3000K of the emitted spectrum. So a High CRI of 82 for 3000K...

    Sunwayman D40A - Another 4AA compact thrower

    Marconelly, OK I started on turbo mode and bumped back up to turbo three times for about 9 minutes. Suspect that if I started at 550lm it would have made 90min, I'll try that tomorrow. *** Update *** OK my results from HI 93 min's to Med step down missed the Med to Low step an additional 36...

    Car battery VS deep cycle battery.

    OK, with that load your 102A battery should have provided about 5 hours of run time. Sounds like bad battery, bad charger. Get a charger that remains permanently attached that means one that is 3-stage with automatic float. I use a BatteryMinder Model 12248 2/4/8 Amp with De-Sulfator. Go to...
