Not sure if this belongs here, however, the plastic lid from a Pringles brand potato chips container makes a surprisingly good beam shaper. The resulting light is somewhat reduced and a little yellow, but very even and pleasant (the yellow is somewhat candle light in hue). Cut to the correct size and carried with a strip of folded over electrical tape, you have a beam shaper you can carry in your wallet. It even makes the UltraStinger into an up-close task light.
Regards,
Greg

Is there no end to the uses for pringles boxes ?

Antennas for wireless networks & beam shapers !!

Oh and they work pretty well as potato chip containers
