I have several Fx Models. Two clean blue, and four (red, green, white, amber) with logos. And all those with logos have it under the resin. You definitly can´t peel that off. I bought the Fx toobs during 2007 (mostly early 2007). Maybe earlier versions had a sticker or something attached but all my Fx models (I got mine from lighthound) have he logo under the resin (it might be printed onto the cylinder or might be a sticker on the cylinder - but definitly "under" the resin).he means he cant peel it off from the old FX glo toob model, they can be taken off, unlike the new lithium glo toobs that have it under the epoxy.
Ok, I remembered my very first glo-toob Fx. A blue one that had a stickered logo on it that I was able to take off. The following image shows the difference (the different switches don´t matter), you can see it by the style of the logos. The red toob is the older Fx version that had the stickered logo that can be taken off, the green toob beneath it is the newer Fx version that has the sticker/print under the resin (like the lithiums).he means he cant peel it off from the old FX glo toob model, they can be taken off, unlike the new lithium glo toobs that have it under the epoxy.
Ah, gotcha. Yes, I think that will be harder not only because of the photographer usually being the person with the Toob, but because it might take a bit of experimentation with the camera to get anything worthwhile (I could be over thinking it though).
Since I'm such a nice guy though, I made an artist's rendering. SCUBA diver at night? Hunter marking his tree stand? You decide!
Does anyone have the amber Glo-Toob? Seems like that might be, for me, the best color for an area light. Red might be too dim, and the others too harsh to look at directly.
Modes can be seen here: http://www.glo-toob.com/Images/Products/litmode.html
There is a 100% level for constant-on and a 25% level (PWM)
Huh... I would have to disagree. The green is by far the brightest and can be seen from the furthest distance.I regret buying the green Toob. It doesn't work well as a roadside marker since it may be mistaken for a green traffic light. It also makes a poor wearable marker when walking/running/biking at night for the exact same reason. My green Toob is now treated like a novelty light as I feel it's too dangerous to use in any real situations.
As a random point of interest, my green Toobs on 25% level are still brighter than my red Toobs are on 100%. I know you guys are talking about amber, but I still thought that was an interesting point worth mentioning.
Edited to add that I am talking about Lithium Toobs here... so that may change the discussion on color/brightness/modes some.
Ok, yea, that must be the crucial difference. In the lithium versions, every color Toob has 3 LED's no matter what. I just checked the FAQ for confirmation:Perhaps the Lithium Toobs are different, but my amber Toob is far brighter than my green one (23A versions). The amber uses five LEDs, while the green uses three.
(Emphasis added)http://www.glo-toob.com/faq.html said:How many LED (Light Emitting Diodes) does the GLO-TOOB have?
That depends on the color of the GLO-TOOB. Red has 6 LED’s, amber has 5 LED’s, blue, green and white have 3 LED’s. Infra-red has 6 LED’s – both wavelengths – and the Lithium GLO-TOOB will have 3 LED’s across the whole range of colors.
Is the CR123A version brighter too? I've got an Amber version of the old style and may want to pick up another amber and a white Lithium version. I'm thinking bug-out bag type stuff. Maybe even a red one; but for sure an amber.
