    The Lounge 2016

    Re: The Lounge It's hard, Wimmer! Since being "good" for the past week, I've bought a charger and an extension tube for one of my lights, which don't count because they aren't actually "flashlights". I'm about to buy some more batteries, which also don't count. I did just leave a voice mail...

    R50vn - Best 26650 Light

    Did you move? I haven't been on CPF in about a week because I'm trying to get my flashaholism under control (at least a little). It was SO hard too! I'm not kidding. :sigh: I'm so happy to be on CPF right now, yay! lovecpf I might celebrate by buying a flashlight! LOL! I've seen your...

    R50vn - Best 26650 Light

    Thanks Bdm82. I saw a few online stores say that the Olight R50 26650 battery is protected, so hopefully a different protected battery won't be tripped by turbo mode. If I test my Keeppower 26650 battery in the R50 and the protection kicks in when I turn on turbo, can I still charge that...

    Review: Klarus Mi7 (1xAA/14500)

    I thought I had locked it out using the switch but from my calculations, it seems that I forgot to lock it out. :ohgeez: I guess I calculated wrong yesterday. I just calculated that it would have taken around 5 months (not weeks) for the battery to drain enough for the protection to kick in...

    Review: Klarus Mi7 (1xAA/14500)

    I just made a long post about parasitic drain on the Mi7 then lost the post when CPF froze.:ohgeez: So, to make a long story short, my Orbtronic protected 14500 was dead in my Mi7 after leaving the light in my purse for 6 weeks. I'm so conscious of locking out lights I'd be surprised if I...

    Flashlight Selfies - around the world :)

    When I clicked on this thread title in my 'settings' page it brought me right to post #363 of the picture of the dead rabbit with a flashlight in it's mouth. That was a shocker because I certainly wasn't expecting a picture like that. That was disturbing to me and it probably would be disturbing...

    TOOLvn- Best IMR10440 Clicky of 2015

    I just tried this today too (see post #634 above). Mine was shiny after only one minute but I polish mine every few weeks, so it was just 'dull' looking (not a heavy patina) before I put the ketchup on. I'm sure the older/darker the patina, the longer you'd have to leave the ketchup on. I'm...

    TOOLvn- Best IMR10440 Clicky of 2015

    Update: Using ketchup is MUCH easier and better than the lemon juice! No rubbing and no need to get the paper towel into the tight spaces. I just slathered the light in ketchup, let it sit for one minute, then rinsed. It's so shiny! From now on, I'm using ketchup! :twothumbs

    TOOLvn- Best IMR10440 Clicky of 2015

    We're about to leave the house to run to the store and I just told my husband "I have to polish my Tool first!", he LAUGHED and said "What?? Polish your 'tool'?". LOL! :crackup: In Canada that word is used for something else too, lol. :p Trying ketchup method right now ;)

    TOOLvn- Best IMR10440 Clicky of 2015

    So does lemon juice. I use lemon juice on my Lumintop Copper tool and it works really well and it's nearly instant results (about 20 seconds to polish the light). I found out about using lemon juice via Google (and Martha Stewart, lol). I pour lemon juice on a small area of a paper town and wipe...

    Review: Convoy L6 (XHP-70, 2x26650)

    You mean they're using unprotected 26650 batteries in series and adding magnets to the mix? They're pretty brave. Wow. :ooo:

    Re: The Lounge You're so lucky that you get to work with them! What a great business to be in. I'd love to do that kind of work. I'm considering learning how to do simple things myself. I have a "budget/bargain" light here I bought because it was on sale (dirt cheap) and I'm considering...

    The Lounge 2016

    Re: The Lounge Me too! If a man gave that to his wife she would be sooooooo happy, so it should be called "Happy Wife", not "Angry Wife". I think it's titanium though. I have one titanium light and I find it gets hot fast compared to the aluminum and copper versions (all Lumintop Tool). I...

    You Just Know Your A Flashaholic When......

    Wow, Monocrom! That was so nice (and generous!) of you to do for your workplace. I hope they appreciated it. You're obviously the most responsible person there. Good thing you're a flashaholic who knows about flashlights so now they're better prepared for an emergency. :thumbsup:
