From the ARC AAA Files under Novel Uses

While dining out with friends the other evening, the candle on our table, at the darker rear area of the restaurant, expired. Although ambient lighting was plentiful and our server brought over another candle after a 20-minute wait, it was a perfect opportunity to use the ARC AAA. with a rubber band I simply attached the mini torch to the paper umbrella from my wife's pina collada, placed it in an empty coffee cup, and activated it. We had a good time talking about our makeshift candle (we didn't use the one our server brought). After 4 hours of dinner, great conversation, and 2.5 bottles of Pouilly Fuisse (there were six of us) the little torch never failed to provide. It still had enough light to illuminate the dark walkway from the restaurant to the parking garage two blocks away. I'm still using it with the same battery. Thanks Peter Gransee and staff for a great little light.

I don't think a day goes by for most manufactuers without them thinking of ways to lower the price of their product.

Now we are in it for quality over price but I do admit I have looked at price more than once. We have had several offers to make our product in China for example. I do not want to make our products in China. Mag has proven that you can make your flashlight in the USA and still sell to the masses.

No, our market is definately highend. So price, while on the list of features, is not towards the top.

Besides, I have long reasoned that if I am going to save you money it is in delivering a flashlight that may be expensive up front but inexpensive in the long run.

Actually I have a joke made many, many times. The last time just the evening before Stingmon introduced us the Lightcubes.

Question: How to turn regular beer into light beer?

(just put an Arclight AAA in it)
Some people do not appreciate it, so do it with your own beer. Needless to say, that my Arc AAA never leaked. In former times I used the UKE 2AAA for this purpose, but the Arc AAA looks better.
This time a girl on the other side of the table complained about blinding her while drinking.

under Automotive Emergency Uses

I visited my good friend of 35+ years and fellow semi-retiree recently. He had called me for assistance in installing a new Holley carburetor in a classic Chevrolet he had been working on for several years now. Knowing his prowess with automobiles, I knew that he certainly did not need my help with this task. He just wanted the company. We installed the big Holley and got the '69 Camaro Z28 running and out of the driveway in less that an hour. Unfortunately, it had gotten dark outside already, but he was nonetheless eager to road test the musclecar. While on the freeway, the dome and dashboard lights "went out." It seems that the carburetor was not the only thing that he worked on that afternoon. Fortunately, the headlights still worked. We were a good 20 miles away from his home but he could not see how fast he was traveling. Out of my trouser pocket came the powerful tactical flashlight, however it proved too much when I illuminated the dashboard. My friend said it was too bright and he nearly lost control of the vehicle as he suddenly turned away when I first activated the powerful light. The ARC AAA, however, provided just the right amount of driving light. I pulled it off my keychain, found a roll of electrical tape, and fastened the tiny light at just the right place on the dashboard so that my friend could see the spedometer. After a good laugh and a thrilling ride, we arrived safely at his house. Looks like another purchase of the little wonder is in order.

I'm published! My wife and I are absolutely tickled. My friend with the Camaro said he bought a dozen for himself, family, and friends.

Thank you, Peter Gransee.

Oh oh, I hope you have plenty of web space Peter. The stories of our beloved Arc lights are bound to be many.
