    Indoor LED fixture for plants?

    I'm looking to see if modern LEDs provide enough spectrum to help plants (I have a few orchids, some herbs) grow indoors. City life sucks without having access to an outside area, so oh well. The other choice is simply use two 24" fluorescent broad spectrum bulbs at 20 watts each with a...

    Hey; Does anyone know if SureFire has altered the optics between the KX2 and the KX2C head? I know the drivers and LED bins are different, just wondering if the KX2C optic is more designed for throw or not.

    Is there a P7 head with remote battery?

    Hey Guys... I just moved to Hawaii for a grad school position. Yay. I bought a bike. Yay. I need a headlight. Yay! Difficulties I'm currently looking at: High theft area, so anything that isn't bolted to the bike is getting yanked immediately. People do carry around hack-saws, so I'd...

    Shortest SSC P4 optic/reflector?

    Hey guys... I just modified my Underwater Kinetics Q40 mini from a side emitting LuxIII to an SSC P4. While I love the floodiness of the light... So yeah, what is the shortest, most compact reflector or optic you guys know of? Height is an issue with this mod. These LEDs should have...

    Couple of high-end Gerbers...

    Nah, the title isn't as paradoxical as it sounds; I've heard Gerber getting a bad rap from the higher-up knife community, some of it deserved (some not). Anyway, I decided to fire away and the girlfriend got the me the 06 Automatic for my birthday (bless her heart... she also got the me LMF...

    TLE-5EX Issues

    Hey guys... I have a TLE-5EX I bought from Batteryjunction and it served me well for the first month or so. Now, whenever I have it turned on for more than 2 minutes, it will start flickering. It's not the battery, or the contacts, or the Nite-Ize clicky I put on the AA minimag (tried...

    Complimenting 18650 Flashlights?

    Hey guys - first post on this forum. I'm looking for a versatile duo of LED flashlights, one for long range applications (hello Dereelight DBS) and one for closer (~30 m) applications. I've pretty much set my mind on the DBS, but want another LED flashlight with high output for close ranges...
