    Hi all! I’ve a piece of equipment that takes an obscure 6v alkaline battery, it was supplied with a dead battery which I tore down, turns out it’s just 4xAA alkalines welded in series with a branded heatshrink over the top and a contact plate either end. Does anyone know of any sources for...

    Military portable spotlight upgrade help!

    Hi, I won a ?1970's/1980's? ex-military lamp on eBay and I'm looking for suggestions/ideas/comments/inspiration from the great minds at CPF on ways to upgrade it. I've not found a lot of info about this lamp, the following is all I've managed to track down (from here): Lamp uses a BA9s...

    QTC 'armour' for button cells to protect against injury on accidental ingestion

    Found this link today, great application of QTC technology. From the BBC: Special coating makes batteries child-safe. Essentially, the cell's negative terminal is coated with QTC material so that current is only available when compressed in a battery holder. The idea is to prevent hydroxide...

    Damaged 10180 cell? 4.11V resting, 3.87V charging?

    Right, so I thought I had figured Li-Co cells out, but I'm not sure on this: 1 year old, very little used, LiCo 10180 cell purchased through illumination supply iirc. Used in a Peak Eiger 10180 on a keychain. Clipped it into my CottonPickers charger with display, display flickers very dimly...

    White Slice rechargeable flashlight on Kickstarter?

    Seen here. Appeared on the advertising banner at the top of the page. What say ye more knowledgeable CPF users? 163 backers already and I couldn't find a single reference to it here on CPF! I do have slight concerns that it looks like it's a bit too easy to turn on, and the beam is cool white...

    Gembird EnerGenie LED bulb on indiegogo?

    Link here. Has anyone else come across this? I've seen heat pipes mentioned before in discussion of LED bulbs but dont think I've seen anything that implemented it before. They claim 1080 lumens at 8W power consumption and a 330 degree output angle, 85CRI and 2700K and 4000K options (it's not...

    Blackout - TV show Channel 4, UK

    I think this is the right place to post this.. One-off docu-drama exploring 'what-if?' Britain's power was disrupted due to terrorism. Truth be told, I mainly watched it to see what torches would feature :D. Anyone else watch it? What did you make of it? I'm not a big fan of shakey, handheld...

    British made?

    There are loads of threads on USA made flashlights but I can't seem to find anything for lights made in the UK, open to all formats at the moment- spotlight/keychain/headlamp etcetc... So far I've found a load of 'vintage' stuff (Eveready etc) but I was after something a bit more modern. I've...

    Brass screws?

    Are the current keychain Peak Logan 17500 QTC supposed to come with a brass screw under the keychain attachment? I have a HA and Stainless and neither have the screw :confused:. I bought these lights about ~5 months ago from Oveready and only just noticed that talk of an 'adjustable brass...

    AA/14500 warm/high CRI suggestions?

    Hi guys, Looking for a high CRI and/or warm tint, single AA light which retains low modes when using 14500's. I love my zebra H51c but am after something with a few more lumens on max when fed li-ion whilst retaining a low-low (>0.5lm). I like the look of the Peak El Capitan, does anyone know...
