    WTT: Oveready Aluminium 18650 Battery capsule for 18350

    Here's a long shot... I have an OR 18650 Aluminium Battery Capsule that I've only ever used once or twice in a fleece pocket with no companions. There's a tiny spec of ano missing from around the lip of the tube, but it's 9/10. Before I mess it up and put it on my keyring, I'm looking to swap it...

    Do you lose your lights?

    That's LOSE not USE! I think that at least once a week I manage to lose one of my lights. There it is in my hand and the next minute it's gone. I try not to panic as this happens so often, but there's this nagging voice at the back of my brain thinking about it lying beside the road waiting for...

    Change Colour Temperature of Overhead Bathroom Light

    We've just moved into a new house. The bathroom lights are too bright and far too cool. I've been using a 4500k Nichia Triple in there and and the light is so much more appealing. Before I mess our brand new bathrooms around, I wondered if anyone had an idea of how to lower the CT of the current...

    Sold/Expired Found! Novatac Switch

    That was quick, thanks to Msf below, I have a replacement on the way. Hurrah! If anyone can help, I'm looking for a switch, with or without the tailcap, to go in my Novatac 120E. I've just had a Nichia fitted in there and was so enjoying the light, when the switch failed (nothing to do with the...

    HDS Novatac Mod

    I have a conundrum. Here's the pill out of my Novatac 120E. Before I removed the SSC emitter I carefully marked the polarity of the connections on the pill, then I managed to clean off the marks with alcohol. Short of wiring it up to see, does anyone know if there's a way of tell which is +ve...

    Headlight with red and white emitters

    A friend of mine wants to buy a headlight for his submariner daughter, so he asked me. I've found a Streamlight Sidewinder Compact II, which I can get from by next Weds. i just wondered if anyone else has a good idea. I imagine 1000 lumen lights in a submarine would be a pain in the...

    Sold/Expired Gone: Surefire Z2 for Malkoff MD2

    Welcome to another of Peter's Pie in the Sky swap threads. I have a very nice condition Surefire Z2, no drop in, but I can put in a used incan P60 if you wish. It was nearly new when I got it and I haven't used it at all since. I can't see any damage, but I'm sure a purist could, lets say 9/10...

    HDS How to blacken a stainless steel bezel

    I'd like to turn one on my stainless bezels black. I know I can do it with a titanium one by heating and then immersing in oil. Is there a similar way to do it with stainless? Thanks, Peter

    So I've got an Ra Twisty 100 Lm Warm light that I was going to modify, but it's in such nice condition that I no longer want to do it to the poor thing. Thank you A for putting me on the right track. It's a lovely little light and I really appreciate the amazing engineering that went into it...

    HDS Identical HDSs

    How many of you have two or more HDSs of the same type? I'm thinking of modding another Twisty with exactly the same emitters and driver as my existing one. Apart from the pleasure of doing it (which is immense), I can't think of a good reason to have two lights that do the same thing. P

    HDS Conversion of an Ra Twisty to a Nichia Triple.

    Hopefully Dan won't mind me posting this here, if it's a problem I'm sure we can move it. This will be an ongoing thread that I'll update as I do the work. Here's some of the bits. There's a complete reflector next to the bored one. I ordered a spare reflector and bezel from Unique...

    Sold/Expired Armytek Partner C1 V1 WTB

    I'd like to get hold of an Armytek Partner C1 V1, the one with just the two modes. I gave a few to friends when they were available new, and I would like to get another to give away.

    Intelligent Chargers

    This morning I read the sales puff for a new All singing - All dancing Xtar charger. It will detect cell type, size, capacity and IR and charge it accordingly, with no input necessary from the user. While I can appreciate the convenience of this, especially for recharging virgins, I feel...

    Powerbank Question

    Do powerbanks have some sort of boost circuit in them so that they can bring something to a state of charge higher than themselves? Imagine two similar containers of water, one full the other empty. If you connect them together the water will flow until the containers are equaly full. If you had...
