    Pandemic supply chain in your area

    Was lost and now is found

    Six or so years ago I started a new job that was 75 miles away from my home. Given bad weather and all else that could go wrong, I got a large backpack and filled it with stuff I might need to get home, or just to survive if the car broke down. I left that place 2 years ago but kept the bag in...

    Charger for longer length batteries.

    I was hoping that some members here would list more chargers that they are using with the longer batteries! When shopping for a charger it's not easy to tell the max battery length as many companies don't list that spec. Several companies that claim that they work with protected 21700s have a...

    Charger for longer length batteries.

    In case you've wondered why some Olights come with empty battery cases

    >> DO NOT separate the battery from the flashlight. So you should not have multiple batteries? When it goes dead put it on a charger vs popping in a second fully charged battery? If so, that sort of eliminates using that light for many purposes like camping, hiking, caves and anywhere else...

    Wurkkos WK30 The specs may still say ~390 but they recently changed to 365. It can "see" things that my other UV lights cannot.
