I wouldn't have shown my first attempts to anyone.

 

A 160 foot garden must be a pain to maintain though. That lamp makes a great target for the lower-powered stuff.

Oops double post. I think I could get to hate this mouse that interprets every click in its own "special" way.

Cheers mate, yeah the garden can be a right pain what you can't see from the pics is that is also slops quite a bit which males pushing the lawnmower even harder.

My 3MCP one killed the batteries in less than 15 minutes with new batteries. It was a lot of fun while it lasted though.

Ah, those rocket launching shots you posted were from a spotlight?  As in a flashlight with a handle that is at 90 degrees relative to the head?

Usually, but not always. To me it means a device powered by SLA batteries with one or more high wattage incandescent bulbs in large reflectors giving a narrow beam and about 15 minutes of runtime before the batteries spend another 12 hours attached to a charger. Probably not your thing, our esteemed administrator. Alternatively you bolt a few truck batteries to the thing and use a truck to move it. Great fun for long-range spotting, just not for a very long time.

Don your spot on mate here's the little beastie...

Runtime 

Low aprox 60mins

HIGH approx 20-30mins 

Then 12 hour recharge or as Don pointed out you can connect it to your car via the power point and run it that way no need to charge battery..

Now that sucker is nice.....i have a Black&Decker 55 watt spotlight that i used to use a lot out in the cemetery's to make sure that there were no bums or critters out.  Made a very good light but didnt last for very long at all.

With Darkness, there will always be Light.

WOW!!!  What a strange response, I was expecting something more like, "this is a budget light forum according to rule 4, chapter 5, paragraph D of our charter, which you are violating and you're subject  to suspension or expulsion from our forum. We will have mercy on you this time, but if you don't like it, GO ELSEWHERE.":(

 

Instead I get, Here is the new section you suggested, ENJOY !   :D

 

No 'tudes here! 

 

THANKS!

 You're welcome!  Pretty much anything that makes light is fair game here.  I'm thinking about adding a glow worm and lightning bug section too...
