    Old Nitecore i4 Intellicharger behavior

    By “old” I mean the pre-2016 version with the individual LEDs and not the newer, fancier display. I just put an AW RCR123A black wrapper battery in it, and the charger did something I hadn’t seen before. If the battery is dead and not chargeable, all three indicator LEDs will flash, I’ve seen...

    Odd battery find

    I just found this carbon-zinc battery. We have hundreds of NiMH batteries, having replaced all the alkalines in all our small devices, but I didn’t know we had one of these. I have no idea where it came from. I knew these batteries were developed from the original wet Leclanche batteries, and...

    “Fun” with alkalines

    So I found myself in the position of not having an extra NiMH battery replacement (a pretty rare occurrence since I usually have lots of Eneloops and various other brands around) when both my Fenix E99 Ti and Olight i3E EOS AAA lights, using a Sanyo Eneloop (white wrap) and a CVS (green and...

    Show off your charger collection!

    I didn’t see a thread on this so I thought I’d start one. Except for the two Goal Zero’s, this is just my small battery chargers for sizes 10180 up to CR123A.

    Low voltage behavior on Lumintop Ant AAA stainless

    First, before I say anything further, I want to say I really like this light. It is one of the few side button models out there in the AAA format. I normally carry a twisty in an AAA or 10440 size, but thought I’d try the side button model. Despite the greater weight of stainless steel vs...

    Unusual, odd, or rare lights

    I don’t see a thread for this, so I thought I’d start one. Not sure how much action it’ll get, but I think I have a good one to start with, the unusual Art Steigerwald “The Sphere” AA/14500 bronze (“Captain Nemo”) light:

    Sold/Expired SOLD: Sunwayman V10R Ti2

    It was a tough decision, but I’m going to be putting a few of my much loved SWM’s up for sale. I need to raise money for new projects, and I have to be brutal. This is the first, the SWM V10R Ti2 Collectors Edition in the black. For SWM fans, this model probably needs no introduction. For...

    Sold/Expired Sold: Sigma Brass 18500

    ​First, a correction, this is a Sigma, not an Okluma as I stated originally. I’ll be putting a few lights up to help pay for current projects. The usual sales rules apply. I reserve the right to sell or not sell to any buyer. Once it’s in the mail, it’s yours, not responsible for postal...

    Inova X1 flashlight AA NiMH battery compatibility

    Hello all, I just discovered that the Duracell Iron Core AA NiMH batteries (the green and copper ones) and the Amazon Basics (black label, not gray, which are alkaline) batteries are too big for this light. Mine is the "titanium" model in gray. However, the Goal Zero batteries just barely fit...

    EDC'ing without lithium ions

    Hello all, What with all the concern about lithium ion batteries these days I thought I'd put together an EDC kit with just NiMH. Of course I luv my lithium ion lights and am not overly concerned as I feel I've learned enough about safe use and safe charging procedures by hanging out here for...

    Show off your Legos

    I looked but didn't see a thread here on this which is surprising. I know there are some great Legos out there so post them here! I'll start it off with these two MBI HF-R Legos (made from Ti & red anodized aluminum models) with the MBI Nuke charger and 10250 batteries. . . .

    Show off your Luter lights

    I thought there was a thread on this but couldn't see it. Anyway, here's a little tribute to one of our fave makers in Great Britain, Luter (Yuri). The beautiful right angle purple/purplish triple mod just arrived so I thought I'd post an undated photo of my collection. . . . From L to R in...

    Show off your Nitecores!

    I didn't see a thread for this so thought I'd start one. Here's my lineup of Nitecores (the Niteye Eye40vn was in the same box by mistake so I threw it in just for variety). Missing is my EA4 4xAA light which will turn up eventually. . . . Back row, left to right: EAX Hammer 8xAA Niteye Eye40...

    Post your multi AA lights!

    And by that I mean at least a 3xAA light, not the common 2xAA lights. Here's mine, an ITP Polestar 6xAA light and a Nitecore EAX Hammer 8xAA light. I also have a Nitecore EA4 4xAA light somewhere but couldn't round it up for the photo. . . .
