    Default Blue Photon with Blue LED?

    I was leaving the chip shop (fish 'n' chips) last night and a young lady was using a blue LED to find her car door lock in the dark. Realising that I knew her from school (that's a long time ago now!) I walked over to say "Hi!". It turns out she was in a gadget shop and saw it; thought it looked cool and bought it.

    I believe it was a PhotonII (blue case with blue LED). I showed her my ArcAAA turq but she decided that it was too big for her keys. Turns out that when her LED light goes too dim she takes it to a watch shop and gets them to change the batteries.

    When I told her I've met David - the inventor of the Photons she was like "Wow!"

    Conclusions:
    23 year old female who talks to me.
    Likes LEDs. EDC's an LED light.
    Rich enough to pay somebody to replace the batteries.
    Single.
    Graduate.
    Blonde.

    I'm off to marry her!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Back on topic -
    Do Photon make other colour cases with same coloured LEDs?
    Anyone got any photos?

    Thanks

    AFAIK Photon microlights only come with black cases. They do have another model that is blue but does not look the same as a Photon I, II or III.
    However there are some "clones" out there. See this post on the Photon website forum. This is probably what you saw:

    P.S. Marry her before she gets away!!!

    The Photon Rav'n Party Light has a blue case, but it has that silly multi-color LED changing colors all the time. It does look like you could transplant Photon III guts and a blue LED into it.

    Could it be that your lady friend is more than a flashaholic... dare I say it, could she actually be a ... modder???

    If so, I'm sure every other CPF'er online wants to marry her too. Bring her here, we can have a mass wedding [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img].

    Genuine Photon I, II, and III will always come in an opaque black case. The Rav'n comes in a translucent blue case, and the X-Lights come in combination translucent/transparent cases to match the LED color, but as far as I'm aware, the others only come with black cases.

    I was in a sporting goods store tonight; I was checking out the lights they had in stock, and I found a genuine "Photon II" light with a "camouflage" case. I forgot the type of camouflage - I do remember it was not the typical "woodland" pattern so often used. It had a "white" LED, and had a price of (I believe) $15.95. There was only one left. I didn't buy it, as I spent my money on items I needed for work.

    AlphaTea,

    You are likely to be right. I guess she didn't know any better [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
    Thanks for posting the photos.
    I didn't have a close enough look to tell whether it had the Photon logo on it.

    Could it have been an LED Club Blue torch? I have one of these. They're extremely bright and look like a photon!

    I don't have plans to see her again. Anyway, I've have to bribe her not to post about any of the flashlights I carry and use.

    (straying off topic further)

    I have always been partial to the Focke Wulf 190 myself.
    I prefer the long nose "Dora" model. It would definately
    be chasing the Spitfire! (especially at higher altitude)

    (but we digress)

    Ask her up to your place to "show her your SureFire collection" . . . [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/naughty.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/drool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yellowlaugh.gif[/img]

    Mike 161 -

    I believe those are the new photons made in a partnership with eveready. I remember seeing pics of the camo cases in the press release.

    Here they are: http://www.photonlight.com/products/camo_photons.html

    Don't see anything about Eveready partnership, though... perhaps I've got my facts mixed up...
