    My new Fenix P2D Q5 Edit: now working fine

    My new Fenix P2D Q5 died for no apparent reason the other day. I have no doubt the reputable dealer who sold it to me will replace or repair it. I am curious about what the problem is with the two month old light, and if I could fix it myself. The light all of a sudden stopped working. I...

    Fenix diffuser, how good is it?

    I use my D series Fenix light most of the time. If I want smooth even flood, I use my Surefire L4. Now I see that Fenix has a diffuser. If you have one, does it produce a white, even flood beam? Here is a link: PS...

    What's a Mule CX2?

    What's a Mule CX2? Could somebody please post a link or answer for me. It looks cool, and at this point it is still available. They will probably go fast. I assume it does not use 2 C batteries. Is it just like a Mule PD but brighter and longer?

    NRA supports gun control law?

    It's all over the news. They say the NRA is supporting a gun control law. The NRA says it's not a gun control bill. The NRA says it will not cause any more people to lose their constitutional rights, and it will allow people who have lost their rights a chance to regain them. This is not just...

    ElektroLumens P4 Stunner, does anything compare?

    I've got an Electrolumens P4 Stunner. It is by far the brightest light I've ever seen. It also has extremely good run time thanks to the 8 Seoul P4 and high capacity rechargeable D cells. It's also small enough to fit in my glove box or briefcase. Does anybody out there have a P4 Stunner? How...

    L2D-CE with single CR123a body

    Anybody else want a L2D-CE with single CR123a body? I like the L2D-CE and L1D-CE because they allow you to select whether you want low or high on the first click. I wish Fenix could combine the small size, and impressive power of a CR123a with the choice of high or low on the first press of the...

    Lumens Factory E-Series Lamp Assemblies

    Has anybody here bought from Lumens Factory? I'd like to hear what you think. I saw in a thread they had some new E-Series lamp assemblies that are rated at 150 bulb lumens for the Surefire e2e. Is this awesome, or too good to be true?:)

    Cree lights at DealExtreme, Genuine?

    The Cree lights at DealExtreme look like a good bargain. I especially like the DX 3W Cree, because it can use either an 18650s or 2 CR123As. Can anybody verify, from their own personal experience, that these lights have genuine Cree LEDs? I assume that since they are labeled Cree they actually...
