    I thought the same when I built the light. I only had one LED. Now I am not too sure where I got it.

    That light is awesome! What a great job you've done with the wiring. However, that attic needs to be properly insulated. Doing mine was horrible. Hire a professional.
    Here I am installing the baffles to keep the blown-in insulation from blocking the soffits. Miserable job all around.

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

    I actually put the insulation in myself. I need boards over it to cover it also?

    I was referring to the floor joists. Without insulation there, the heat from the room underneath is escaping into the attic. Wasted heat = wasted money. There is much more room for insulation between the ceiling joists than there is in between the roofing joists. You and I live in a pretty mild area considering winter weather. Still, attic insulation recommendations for northern states is 14 to 18 inches / R-49.

    I've had three large insulation projects completed by professionals at our church. Every professional (lots of bids) mentioned that attics should not be used as a storage area and there should not be any unnecessary wood present. So, no you shouldn't place wood planks on top of the floor joists nor should there be any wood attached to the bottom of the roof joists.

    The wood present in my picture was only present for crawling on. After I insulated I removed those planks.

    Done a ton of research today, but still not finding all the answers I'm looking for. Maybe someone can help? I have a S200C2vn with the 90. Absolutely LOVE this light and is one of my all time favorites. I have a Warrior X Pro, but with only a medium and high, I never use it. I could get it modded with the 90 and new driver though, but now it's a $250 light. Now I'm looking at the Manker U22 lll with the 90 and it's only $115 stock and Vinh is loving the new Mankers. Seems its the same reflector and performance (minus runtime and heat management) as the Manker 37 with 90, which is incredibly impressive IMO. My question is, how does the build quality and reliability rate between the three lights? Anybody know or have thoughts on these? Anybody have experience with this Manker or Warrior Xvn90?

    OK I will make it a project for this spring to add additional insulation.

    U22vn90 should be be very nice just like the MK37vn. Xvn90 is a nice tactical reflector light but it is pricey....

    I made this post on Reddit and there seem to be some relevant information that I think I should share here also:


    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Vinh Nguyen. I am the owner of Sky Lumen. This is my first time posting on Reddit.com and hopefully not my last. I have debated whether I should chime in on the OP shipping “issue” as I rarely do not like to explain myself in one’s feedback but perhaps I will make an exception.

    First off, SkyLumen.com is more or less a 1 man homemade custom shop so I may run my business a bit different than say Amazon or Ebay. Due to the nature of my products I have restrict sales to minors under 18 and have specifics guidelines regarding usage, shipping, warranty and operation. My Purchase Agreement is so important that it will be the first thing you see when you enter https://skylumen.com/. The Purchase Agreement including the Shipping Insurance is again reminded on the bottom of every sale page on my store including the Laser Throw Compact that the OP is referring to here:

    https://skylumen.com/products/sky-lu...b772278d&_ss=r

    At the bottom of every sale link you will also see this Shipping note:
    + Shipping Signature and/or Insurance (DEFAULT NOT INCLUDED)”

    At checkout one MUST also check a box indicating they agree to the Purchase Agreement otherwise checkout is not possible. The light/order will also be delivered with a printed Purchase Agreement. These 4 measures are taken to ensure that one can not missed the Purchase Agreement and truly realize it’s importance when making a purchase at the Sky Lumen store.

    In the case of the OP the customer admit to not reading the Purchase Agreement and therefore lied that he did and check the box to reading and agreeing the Purchase Agreement. This action is extremely discouraged when buying from SkyLumen.com.

    Yes, it is very true that the buyer will always be protected by the Credit card company or Paypal regardless of what I demand in my Sky Lumen Purchase Agreement. They want to keep their business so if an item is not delivered then the seller is out of luck. So I more or less think of Sky Lumen shipping guidelines as a gentleman’s agreement. If the OP order is indeed lost, (which I do not think it is as Covid19 greatly delay delivery nowadays) I have little doubt that he will be able to recover his money via a Paypal claim. But it is fair? Everyone can surely make up their own mind. I only ask that one please make up your mind before the purchase and not after.

    If you purchase from SkyLumen.com I promise to never cheat you, hassle free returns, and personal customer support/service. All I ask is please read and agree to the Purchase Agreement to protect yourself and keep me in business so I can continue to give what I got to the flashlight community and feed my family. If there is anything you disagree with in the Purchase Agreement we should not transact for obvious reasons as Sky Lumen rules and warnings are not negotiable.

    If you would like to do business with Sky Lumen and or find out more about me on a personal level you may start here or send me an email and I promise to respond.

    https://skylumen.com/pages/about-us

    I will likely not respond further to this matter so please email me should you have more concerns or interest. For now, I hope everyone stay safe as we are seeing the light at the end of this long Covid tunnel. Better days are ahead and please tell someone you love how much you care. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Most Sincerely,
    Vinh Nguyen

    This is totally true in spirit to who Vinh has represented himself all these years. He has made mistakes with my orders and has always made good, no hesitation. The Reddit post is excellent. I just wish Vinh would have also referred the people of Reddit to candlepowerforums to get a further sense of the skill, quality and integrity coming from Sky Lumen.

    Reddit invites the worst of the whine-y, impatient, immature people who want attention, however they can get it. Remember when Vinh announced this to all of us, and none of us cared? I do.....

    SkyLumen in no sense is a traditional company or store, and I'm pretty sure that this (small) change was made to make your business actually viable for yourself.

    IDK. The only time I use the term "SkyLumen" is when typing it or describing which company i have the most lights from, otherwise SkyLumen to me is actually a man and person named Vinh, who I can easily state is one of the most gentlemanly, friendly, helpful, and caring people on this planet. Vinh also mods/ makes kick-ass lights, and whenever I've had a problem it was immediately addressed.
