    Quality Warm/Neutral Headband Light

    I have a couple excellent Zebralight headlamps but am intrigued by these headbands with a strip of LEDs integrated into the front. It seems like they are all cheap and cool white though. Does anyone know of a good quality and/or warm/neutral version of this style if headlamp?

    How to Fix Loose Lens on Alpha

    The lens on my Alpha has become a bit loose and rattles ever so slightly. It can be wiggled back and forth as seen in the video below (turn up the volume to hear it rattling). Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

    Nitecore i4 Only Charges to 4.12-4.15v

    Hey everyone, I have a Nitecore i4 charger that I bought brand new a few months ago to replace my Trustfire charger. I love the 4 bays and higher charging current but with my 18650s and 16340s that I've been charging, the i4 only gets them to about 4.15v. A lot of the time all the lights will go...

    How To Mount Two Zebralight Headlamps On One Band

    So I'd like to mount a H600w AND a H602w on one headband...any tips to do that without each pointing off to the side? Perhaps mounting both heads to the inside? That still might point off to the side a bit though. Plus it would be a huge pain to move back to a separate headband when necessary...

    10,000 Lumen SupBeam X60 (4xMT-G2, 6x18650)

    Just came across this on SupBeam's website, looks like they're upgrading the 4xXM-L X60 to 4xMT-G2 and now it's 10,000 lumens instead of 5,000 lumens, wow! If Vinh (vinhnguyen54) can squeeze nearly 7,000 lumens from the 2xMT-G2 NiWalker MM15 then I bet he can squeeze 14,000 lumens from this hoss!

    IMAX B6-AC Question

    Here's a question for someone with more experience than me. I've always used my Ultrafire WF-139 2-bay charger for charging all of my Li-Ion cells. It's 500mA which is fine but I was wanting to charge some of my 18650s a bit faster so I pulled out my IMAX B6-AC hobby charger that I use for my...

    1xAAA with Flash/Beacon Mode

    So I recently started taking my dog out at night off leash. He's getting of an age where I can trust him pretty well off-leash so when I let him out at night to use the bathroom, it's a good way to help reinforce "come" when he's done. Anyways, I don't think he'd just run off but there are a...
