Got this SK58 clone.
I thought it would be a compact light but it’s not, a light of this size should easily fit 16650.

I finally got an 8pak of toilet paper!

Was running low on Scotts (which I’m saving), did get crappy ¼-roll CVS-brand 4pax for a while, ordered a box of Tork huge-roll industrial TP that should be coming in a week or so, but finally had marginally-better Marcal for a change.

Jesus smiled on me… Innocent

The difference between the batteries is quite big in diameter and length!
Can you check the measures on the battery tube?

I didn’t mean to imply that with some adjustments one could fit 16650 inside but rather that the light is quite bulky. Far from the largest but very far from what I hoped for.
24 mm bezel diameter
93 mm total length
20.5 mm tube diameter
14.65 mm tube inner diameter
16.35 mm inner diameter of the threaded part
61 mm depth of battery tube from the driver to the end of threads. Actual battery compartment is shorter than this by roughly 6 mm.
11.5 mm tailcap length

So…one could easily mill it to accept 16500. 16650 would require removing the switch.
Honestly, I don’t think it’s worth bothering.

I couldnt wait so had to have a look on acebeams site. The osram led stands out. I like the beam they trow. here is one on the right behind a 145mm lens, tree is 50m, other beam is W30.

I fully agree, did some crimping on 1.5mm wire and it’s really easy to do, I feel like there is no room for error, especially when compared to some no name tool I sometimes used before.

Sorry, I misinterpreted your statement before, now I get what you say! For a moment you got me thinking that this could be one of those lights that fit different types of batteries. But I see that it’s due to the overall size that you said it
Thanks for your measurements, though!

I got this primary arms advanced micro dot (rotary control version). These primary arms optics absolutely embrace the spirit of BLF in the firearms optic world; high quality and extremely high value for your money! I put it on my marlin Camp 9 and sighted it in, can’t wait to get out and have some fun with it soon!

Agreed. I ordered one from Illumn on Friday, showed up in the box on Monday. Cheers to Illumn. Always nice doing business with them.

I never had a real need for a thrower like that until I got this new property. I have a few hot rod C8’s and a BD06. That about rounds out my thrower collection, until now. That E10 is a impressive little light. It’s about 200 yards from my front porch to the tree line. No problem lighting it up. 100 yards from the back porch to the tree line and of course that isn’t a problem for that light either. It will get used for looking for deer and critters and seeing what the occasional rustle in the woods is all about. It’s impressive for sure. Never seen a TIR that size, pretty neat. I’ll try for some beam shots tonight if it’s clear enough. Been kinda hazy/foggy around here the last week or so.

Please don’t buy this thinking it will work as a great everyday light. It just won’t. It does exactly what it is suppose to do and, it does it very well.

Ikea PS 2017 Light.

Refreshing design; lacking UI.

Especially when you consider that there is a PIC inside that could have been programmed into something else than 1-mode only light.

For my initial impression, see https://imgur.com/a/BbkvAqI

Already consfiscated by my 10-year old daughter.

Got the SOG BladeLight BLT 10-K. It was $9.99 delivered. It comes with two AA Energizer batteries. Also, a Kydex sheath.

However, the flashlight is DOA. I even went and bought new AA batteries, but still not working. The knife has a 9Cr18MOV blade, and a FRN handle. So it is worth $10, not a whole lot more than that, though.

Got a Rofis MR70, really liking this light so far.
I am a sucker for lights with dual output modes, and USB charging.

Also picked up a Blackfire hat light, was tired of not being able to use a headlamp when I had a hat on.
Decent light for the price, 40 and 100 lumens, though I wish it had an even lower mode.

The smallest diameter TIR zoomie on the market, Coast HP2.
I bought it despite it being a twisty because I hoped with this short zoom travel I’d be able to do a full zoom with one hand.
No chance, it takes 540 degree turn of the bezel to do the entire travel and requires so much force that I can barely move it with one hand.
Zoom travel is huge for a lens this narrow, about 4.5 mm.

The light doesn’t focus too well with the aspheric part. But beam shape is very good at the extreme bezel positions and fair in the intermediate one. In this regard it is the best TIR zoomie I’ve seen so far.

I can’t disassemble it, there’s a retaining ring closing it from the front and it doesn’t have any place to attach any tool, I guess it’s press fit.

Today I got a used Surefire E2E, still in a very good condition with a very little scratch on its bezel.

Thinking to give a “new spirit” with better driver and LED.

On the 22nd of June i bought a q8 on sofirn’s website

Today I received this message:

“Hello,

Your parcel has been returned. The shipping channel stoped caused by severe epidemic in Brazil. Your orders may need long time to arrive. Would you mind the delayed delivery time?”

I know that we are in difficult times because of the coronavirus and that the news from Brazil is terrible, but I cannot explain the sadness I am feeling.

I was anxious to have a real light, watching my messages 10 times a day and now I’m empty-handed and without hope …

This crisis will not end anytime soon here.

Finally got my red Jaxman E2L today. I’ve been waiting for them to get back in stock since October 2019. Order placed in March.

This is my holy grail cycling tail light (for the moment).
