Hi there

Maybe it's a bit stupid to just ask ask ask, about the cheapest things we can get in this world and never introduce myself properly... So here we go:

Name is Jos, but you can use my nickname too without a problem ;-). I'm from the Netherlands, 24 (almost 25) years old. I've done a education (I'm bachelor of communication and multimedia design) and worked for 4 months. Ain't got a job now (and searching) but still like to get the things I need (or think I need while I would probably not use them for a while...). I've used my mini maglite (2 AAA) for over 10 years. Tried it again one week ago, but it turned out to be broken... That's when I started searching for a new light. I've had a Romisen RC G2 for over 4 months now and I love that little light. Cheap, but very bright. So my search began with these chinese sites. Tried to find some good reviews about lights and found out about 'that other site'. Didn't like the people there (nor that annoying you are under 3 posts banner... I hate these) and that's when I got here. I already asked a lot of questions around here but you guys / girls really helped me out a lot!

I don't know much about flashlights, nor batteries or chargers., as you've probably found out already. But I always like to learn new stuff. I've worked a lot with video / audio and always loved to know a little more about light. Well, I got a 'self made vacation' of 3 weeks so I hope to find out a lot more :D. After that I got to find a new job (which might be / is pretty hard these days.)

Welcome to BLF! That Romisen you have is a good light, but it's been out since about 2008. I think if you buy a modern light you will be pleasantly surprised at how much better they have gotten in the last 3 years. When I say better I mean light output for the money. The quality hasn't changed a whole lot. If you plan to buy more lights you will also want to consider the battery types. What I mean is it is more simple if you own several lights that use the same battery type rather than having five lights that use five different types of batteries. Just something to think about.

I've got lots of bright ideas.

same here, new to the site also..:) Anyway I wanted to share with you folks a very interesting article which talked about Sexless relationships. Comedian Rodney Dangerfield once said, “My psychiatrist said my wife and I should have sex every night. Now, we'll never see each other!” Such was the lawsuit for a French couple in a sexless relationship, reports The Telegraph, but there's an added catch. A judge the French area of Aix-en-Provence determined the male had to repay his ex $14,000 for insufficient sex over their 21-year marriage. Resource for this article: Frenchman ordered to pay ex for lack of sex
