    My Google Photos just came up with "7 years ago today" and a picture of Lee struggling to put his tent up.

    Wasn't I trying to put the bloody thing away? (If you mean the pop up one I borrowed from Remoteneeded).

    I'm sad that all our meetings are such a long time ago. We need to work towards having more Torchy-camping-hijinks in the future, once we're less frightened of the viral outbreak!!!!

    I guess we could meet up and socially distance, but it's not gonna be as easy to try out each other's torches and knives.

    Until we meet again...Stay safe all.

    Picked up a Nitecore UM4 charger from Banggood for £15. Bargin I thought even before the 4.8% Quidco cashback. Its going to replace my aged i4 charger. I like the the fact that it runs off USB so easy to charge in the car. The i4 would do car charge as long as I remembered to pack the 12v lighter socket lead for it. Think its going cheap because they just brought out a replacement but there doesn't seem to be a lot extra in the new version I need. Arrived in 8 days. Still on sale as at now if anyone is interested.

    Also been watching Sapphire and Steel repeats. Classic!

    Crap! The Olight sale was on today and I did the stupidest thing, I remembered. That's another £114 I won't see again.

    Still, picked up....
    Olive green i3T. aaa light. Nice little lights. Gave Tofty one for making that adaptor for me.
    Two of their new penlights. (Looking forward to getting those.)
    i1R (just what I need, another little 10180 light but it was free 'cause I shared their ad on Facebook)
    S2R II Baton in purple

    I like the penlight. (Open 2 - what happened to the Open 1?).

    Some of the bundles are interesting... Mmmm.

    Thanks Jay, I think you may have cost me some spondulucks! Still, Christmas is coming!

    I had their first penlight but the batteries went bad and solidified in the tube. Had to chuck it. Tought me to use rechargeable or primary lithiums.

    My goodies arrived. The pen is really well presented in a very nice case with usb lead and spare ink. It also writes really nicely. The purple on the S2R II looks really good. I may have to start looking at some of the other colour lights, they do an orange that would match my car....

    What refill does the pen light use?

    It comes with a spare but not sure if it is a standard size. I'll pop into town later and see if WHSmith have them. (Update: they didn't.) Rollerball style and its 3 inch long(exactly) and about quarter inch wide.

    Just read a review that says a "Schmidt CL8126" ​will fit. Not sure if that is the same as a Schmidt 'Mini 8126'. I ordered one from ebay and I'll try it. Apparently Olight will be doing a pack of 3 refills for $10 but no sign of them yet.

    Just glued a 6mm trit into the trit slot in the clip.

    Thanks,
    From your dimensions it sound exactly like the Schmidt Mini 8126.
    I would have expected something a little smaller, like the Lamy M22, having looked at some pictures, but if they could fit in a larger refill then great, more space for alternative refill hacks.
    I might just have to pick one of these up.

    I have a spare you can have for the £40 it was in the sale.

    Thanks a lot for the kind offer Kay, unfortunately I'd already purchased one.

    Yes, my Schmidt Mini came and it's the right size refill for the pen.

    It will depend on how much internal space the pen has close to the tip as to whether some of the more interesting refill conversions will be possible or not.
    The Schmidt Mini isn't a bad refill though and the Schmidt 4876 pressurised refill (basically a smaller Fisher PR space pen refill copy) should also be a straight drop-in replacement, perhaps needing a slightly longer spring.
    Funnily enough for the 4876; Schmidt have gone for Li-ion naming conventions, so it is 4.8mm in diameter and 76mm long. How thoughtful.
