    You're welcome.

    As for the misspelling, t'was an attempt at self-deprecating humour of the "People who live in glass houses..." sort. Sorry if it fell short.

    Cheers.

    About a year & half ago I bought a 6S HobbyStar LiPo (25V at 6.2Ah) for a crazy good deal.
    -- a project I never ended up doing.

    Thinking about what could be done do with it, picked up these https://www.amazon.com/HIMA4X4-4000L...897MJQ5W&psc=1
    which comes out to be about $22 each.

    Wanted to do an auxiliary lighting setup running on 25V DC (I'll just use one at a time)

    Did I need to get these..no but sometimes I just have to do a project, just to do a project. Tint filters will be installed.

    An old Pelican M6 Lithium. It's got some patina but I'm looking forward to trying it out. The cells are sitting on my desk and I have a lanyard ring and UCL glass coming for it.

    Going to be my EDC/primary work light until my girlfriend returns my warm tint XL50.

    Nice. I've been eyeing one. I hope you like it and get a lot of service out of it.

    A Convoy S12 (Samsung LH351D, 3500K) and a Samsung INR21700-40T for it.
    Because I couldn't justify an Acebeam X80 CRI.

    Olight Baton S2R Baton II,is coming ...real soon now....delayed by a stockout. It will be replacing the NexTorch P8A that's been promoted to car glove box duty, that replaced a Home Depot Defiant 3 C zoomable that I ruined by cross-threading the tail cap, that replaces a Maglight 3C that I ruined by leaving alkaline batteries in it...twice. (The Maglight outlasted three cars, so it served well.) Getting rid of alkaline batteries in the car lights is a long standing goal, now achieved. I should probably get something cheaper as a car loaner in case of emergency, that I can run on AA lithium/iron disulfide primaries. And I'm lookign for a traffic wand for the car, too.

    Managed to find some Maglite C cell incans, these are becoming quite rare now, as they've been discontinued.

    All black ones, I'm not sure on the bulbs as the seller gave a vague description. But price was really low, so we'll find out when they arrive.

    So, went a bit overboard this opening month of 2021. Here's what's in store for my subs. on my NGMonocrom YT channel as far as reviews later on in the year, and most likely into the next one too.

    Klarus 14500 batts. (3)
    Klarus 18650 batts. (2)
    Klarus XT1A
    Klarus K1 charger
    Klarus E1
    Klarus G20L
    Klarus P20 LED penlight
    MecArmy X4S in Black
    MecArmy 10180 spare batt.
    Olight I5T EOS in Black
    Nitecore TIKI LE model
    Streamlight Protac single-AAA light
    Maratac S.S. TPF single-AAA light - REV.2
    Maratac Brass single-AAA light
    Pro Intelligent Batt. charger
    AceBeam 10440 batt.
    Samsung 18650 batt.
    XTAR 26650 batt.
    R-SPEC PRO INR 26650 batt.

    Yeah.... So in about a month I acquired enough lights, batts., and chargers to keep most folks satisfied for the rest of their lives.

    I just bought a very nice used surefire E1D defender, a second E1B backup, and a 12 pack of 123a’s. My wish list is shrinking pretty fast, provided I don’t add any more to it.

    Batteries. It's starting to feel like all I do is order batteries. First it was batteries for a light I've had a long time(18650s), then batteries for lights I upgraded to(more 18650s), then batteries for a light I planned to buy(more...18650s), now batteries 'cause I bought a body I didn't plan to buy(18500s, annnddd maybe a couple more 18650s).
    Ok, fine, my vaping coworkers may have relieved me of over a dozen 18650s, but it still seems like there's an awful lot of battery shopping going on for a guy with just 6 flashlights and a few headlamps...

    AND, somehow, there's still 2 more empty Malkoff hosts sitting here. 2 of 4 that didn't even live here a couple of months ago. It's like stray flashlights and parts just started showing up at my house all of a sudden.
    I'm starting to resent them taking advantage of my good nature, too, because I already know that when those needy little freeloader hosts grow up to be flashlights, somebody is gonna have to feed them.
    With more batteries

    well I thought I was done buying lights for a while, but I came across an Ultrafire WF-600 incan going really cheap that looks like it might be an interesting host to play around with

    I have a sweet light coming in a trade with a member here, but...

    ...both of us mailed out (via USPS Priority Mail)our respective lights on 1/29. The person I traded with received their light on 2/1. On the 29th of January, mine arrived at the local “distribution center.” Ever sine then, on the USPS app, the package has been listed as “In Transit, Arriving Late.” The last update available was on 2/2. I called the USPS Customer Service line on 2/6 and “opened a case” with them to try to locate the package. Today is the 9th. The package is still “in transit.”

    As well, I have a non flashlight package that has been at the same “distribution center” since 2/5 that is also “In Transit, Arriving Late.” The last update on the USPS app for that package was yesterday, 2/8.

    At what point does this COVID stuff stop being a valid excuse for extremely poor performance? “Opening a case” with them is total BS.

    If if I do any more trades or sell any lights, I promise I will only use Fed Ex or UPS. I’ll pay the extra for the same treatment. I’m just done with waiting for something that cost extra for “quicker, tracked shipping” and not receiving the item within a reasonable timeframe...

    Since COVID, I've been paying more for shipping than the cost of flashlights.

    Peace of mind is worth it IMHO.

    I hear you. My MD2 shipped USPS International Express on the 27th, and has been sitting at Miami airport since the 30th. Somehow, I don’t think it’s going to make to here in time for the estimated delivery today. :/
