Does anyone know the web address of the company that was at SHOT that had an item similar to Turbo Flare, but about 1/2 the size?

Yes, yes. We saw those at shot. They are very similar to the Turbo Flare, but run on either built-in li-ion rechargable from 12vdc or a much cheaper option, 123's /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif He said they float with the 123 version. Looked pretty neat.

LOCO is more like it.
Who was it that collected all the brochures?! I thought it was you, Brock. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Yup, that's the one, and I think we all agreed that the 123 version was the winner. Way the heck cheaper, and if run on a R123, we still have most of the rechargeable benefits! These things are pretty nice, and seem more durable and brighter than the Turboflare... but quite a bit more money as well.

Darell, are you sure it's brighter then the Turboflare? Judging from the pictures, I don't think it's visible from 360 degree. There's a 'dead' spot between each LED. Anyway, how many batteries do you put in the Lithium version? And what is the MSRP?

Jeez, only takes me a month to get back down here...

Yeah, I'm sure it is brighter - at least the one that I saw. And certainly more durable. It is 360 visible, and yes there are what you call "dead" spots between each LED - but that doesn't mean you can't see the thing. From any distance, there is no dead spot as far as your vision is concerned.

These things were expensive, but I can't come up with the cost now. Something like $80 for the cheapest rechargeable one? $40 for the 123 one? Not sure how many cells the CR123 unit took. My guess would be two.

I wish whoever had the brochures would pipe up!
