    22650 vs 18650 question

    Ended up just boring out a piece of CPVC with a 3/4" Unibit. Works great. I would likely remove most of the middle of the tube for heat reasons (leaving two thin connecting strips between two rings) if I only had an heat issues with this application. I don't so I probably won't. Thanks for...

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: 18650 battery pack assistance needed. Depends on what you mean by "wet". I purchased two of these to use for my shorter runs -- I have no qualms with them in the rain, but wouldn't want be ducking through sumps in caves with them.

    Headlamp Porn (Night Orienteering)

    NICE!! Watching that might help some understand why off-trail and technical running benefits from more than the usual 160 lumens that road runners and backpackers do so well with. It was amazing to see some of the shots of those headlamps which were so big they weren't supported by mere...
