Thread: The Lounge 2021

    Default Re: The Lounge 2021

    We are getting used to the new work load. In another month I should be back to work at 80% load. ;-)

    Lately I have found red and very warm LEDs the best for the baby room. I have like 10 lights that I rotate ceiling bounce with between both rooms that the baby stay in. Flashlights are great for this job as I can move them around the room and angle them just right. I a a huge cool white fan but lately I have found less and less uses for cool white other than dedicated throwers and sometime massive flood lights just for the bit of extra wow factor when showing off. But for any real use I prefer warmer tint. Even 3000K in some situations. This is kind of scary. Feels like I am getting old.

    vinh, congrats on the cute addition! I got into flashlights and watches with tritium (have 5 Ball watches) when we had our first child, since he was a light sleeper, colicky even and I needed to rock him to sleep every night for an hour! that was 15 years ago!! cherish the present even though it is rough, take lots of videos, my kids still love the cute vids I took of them and frequently request that I play them.

    I will post Sky Lumen Newsletter this month here. If you are interested in getting on please email me.

    Hello All!

    I finally found a little time to update my SkyLumen.com page. :-)

    New Sky Lumen most important light list. I will try to add and take away from this list as time goes on.
    https://skylumen.com/pages/sky-lumens-best

    Added a new Feedback record page. Please please stop by and leave me a comment on your past experience. Good or bad I promise to not delete. :-)
    https://skylumen.com/pages/feedback

    I added more qualifiers for my special Promotion.
    https://skylumen.com/pages/promotion-of-the-week

    Updated the About Us to include our newest family member ;-)
    https://skylumen.com/pages/about-us

    LM10vn copper: Triple W2.1 with modified optics tuned for max throw is my most fav set up of all. Throws incredible with good output. This triple in this light makes for a nice collectible.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...er-limited-run

    GTvn Mico Brass: Man does it look like a chunk of gold. Makes a great gift IMO.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...ss-limited-run

    X9Lvn Copper for me is a must have for sure. Yeah its heavy but I love this light so having it in copper is a special kind of cool.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...er-limited-run

    EDCvn: EDC doesnt get any easier than this. 1300L is nuts for something this tiny. I dont think any smaller put out this much output.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...a-size-light-r

    G1vn: Kinda fun but not my cup of tea. May be I am just not a fan of any light with the 14500 other than the micro. Even that I rather have the Micro reflector in a 18650 light.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...1vn-turbo-glow

    Pimi is sooo cute! I wished they named it Preemie instead! ahah
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...n-copper-light

    PerunVN2: Quickly becoming my most fav headlight. Not sure what more to ask from a headlight. Actually, I use it more as an angle light for Viet's room.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...adlamp-thrower

    HC35vn: Still not use to the UI although I use it every single night. I like the tint too much so I kind of have to put up with the UI.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...ght-headlamp-r

    KR1vn Fiat Lux: If this one doesnt sell soon I wil just keep it. What a thrower for the tiny size.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...-lux-max-throw

    PreonVN Ti: Pricey but I paid more for it and the polishing job took forever. This is the light I really want to keep but cant justify the price.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...ens-preonvn-ti

    MT01vn: I still prefer W2.1 but XHP50.2 SDCE sure makes impressive number. This optics makes all the LED impressive in it.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...-tir-thrower-r

    TK04vn: Ummm...It s alright. hahah
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...output-thrower

    Mk34vn II: Most Fav flooder to date.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...t-flood-king-r

    MK37vn: If you haven't gotten one you should.
    https://skylumen.com/collections/v54...st-tir-sbt90-2

    Thats all for now! Cheers!

    Very cool photos. That middle one shows the same expression Vinh gives in his videos sometimes! Looks like the precursor to a flashlight in his hands.
    Great shot of your dad: shows good spirit.
    Another shot of Viet that conveys the eyes of a keen observer, with an abundance of sound reasoning.

    Tomorrow, I have the Thursday 3:00 pm weekly Bible study at my meeting hall. It is a great high point for the week, and it is a great opportunity for the faithful of different locations to meet and study, who ordinarily would not mix at one location.

    I am curious as to what the successor to the SBT90.2 will look like, and when it will appear. What will it be called? SBT110.1?

    I work on my sun tan seven days a week, 365 days a year. I get one hour and 45 minutes with my face and arms exposed, even on cloudy winter days. It is late February in mile high country, and I currently have a deep, rich, dark tan on my face and arms.

    I have not had a cold/flu in six years. No cough, no sore throat; I used to get those a few times a year. That all ceased since I went vegan five and a half years ago.

    In eight weeks, I will have five years success keeping 70 pounds, 30% of my body weight off of my body. I have logged 12,500 pedestrian miles in five years, seven miles per day.

    My next flashlight is the FT02S Vn 4 x SBT90.2, being built by Vinh.

    Well, that is my contribution the The Lounge, until next time.

    My lights.

    This is my new flashy. It was lost in the mail (zero tracking) for seven days. I am really happy it finally arrived.

    Sometimes I wonder if I've purchased my last flashlight.

    Iím patiently waiting for the next monster light to be released. The closest one to this was the haikelite hk90. But Iím looking for something bigger and more powerful. The last bunch of lights have been small and medium powered, which was great because I was in the market for some new ones to add to the collection.. which I did. Still waiting on the mk39vn90 to arrive. Iím sorta on the fence with the nano gtvn. Looks like a fun little cute light to have. My current keychain light is a toolvn. Iím not sure if this nanogtvn has more show off power to the 1000 Lumen toolvn...
    oh I love lep technology. I been carrying my w10vn v2 almost daily. Iím looking to dethrone it with smaller size similiar power or same size more power hehe

    I am curious as to what the successor to the SBT90.2 will look like, and when it will appear. What will it be called? SBT110.1? Until a brighter stage light is needed I suppose. We are adapting all sort of LEDs to flashlights. I wonder why Luminus made the SBT90.2 Vf so low though. Since its meant for AC plug in commercial use I would imagine making it higher voltage makes more sense. Regardless, I am thankful that its a low Vf LED.

    I work on my sun tan seven days a week, 365 days a year. I get one hour and 45 minutes with my face and arms exposed, even on cloudy winter days. It is late February in mile high country, and I currently have a deep, rich, dark tan on my face and arms. Maybe you should post a picture. I dont think I know what you look like.

    I have not had a cold/flu in six years. No cough, no sore throat; I used to get those a few times a year. That all ceased since I went vegan five and a half years ago. That's good to know. I am starting to really get out of shape and this is unacceptable. I have a Bow Flex Ultimate sitting in my living room yet I am too busy and lazy to work out.

    In eight weeks, I will have five years success keeping 70 pounds, 30% of my body weight off of my body. I have logged 12,500 pedestrian miles in five years, seven miles per day. That is nuts to be that consistent. VERY impressive actually!
