Haunted House exploration

Which light would you bring to explore an abandoned haunted house? I think I’ll bring my s2+ SST40.

I enjoy watch this guy cause it’s funny, scary, dark, and lights are involved.

I don’t understand what he’s saying but enjoy it nonetheless. I am not affiliated with him in anyway.

Just thought you guys might enjoy this. Fake or real, it’s pretty scary.

Horror movie tradition dictates that you must use a cruddy alkaline powered light with bad electrical contacts and a fragile incandescent filament. If you can’t find one of those a nearly empty lighter or a candle is acceptable.

I’d take an S2+ as well, but with a Nichia 219C. Great beam (with smooth reflector) to spot the spoopies both nearby and afar.

Mode spacing making me think twice…

Don’t for get the critical use detector that causes it to fail at the most dramatic moment.

The Q8 is a great choice, but this is the correct answer.

Fun fact: I play one of my games with a mod that adds a flashlight. You get the options of incandescent (kinda dim, wide spot with no spill, warm), halogen (less warm, longer reach, floody) and LED (perfect daylight-like tint thrower with a tight spot and wide bright spill, like a BLF GT Mini). Guess which I use to keep the atmosphere Silly

If I have learnt anything from horror movies, is that you need a thrower with the narrowest beam, such as an Acebeam W30.

Being an urban explorer, I just use a selection of Convoy S2+ (in different tints) and a KDLITKER E6 (with various colour P60 drop ins) for exploring.

I would use my Acebeam L30. Bouncing it off the ceiling lights an entire room up with plenty of light to identify anything and its got range to light up any house. And if I thought there might be danger like when I explore abandon mines here in Nevada I use my L6 or X45. Bears mountain lions rattle snakes scorpions skunks and vagrants will put a damper in you explorations. I had two small scorpions fall on my legs once and it freaked me out lol, it was almost a very bad day but it was colder out so they were very dormant and slow moving. As a kid I would run around and explore abandoned military bases in Washington state along with coal mines, very dangerous but fun.

You are in a fantastic spot for exploring abandoned mines! TRV Exploring, this guy has probably been to them all.

By its nature, Urban Exploring is visiting places you shouldn’t be in. So in most cases the locations are illegal to access.

I’ve visited many large stormwater drains, mental asylums, bridge rooms, and various abandoned properties.

One of those glow-in-the-dark balloon light modules that emits about 1/100th of a lumen.
