Can you say skin cancer real quick 10 times ....  

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

I can.

I am missing some tissue now here and there, surgically removed, but I am fine. Still, waiting for the test results was harder than breaking up with a long-time girlfriend would be.

My esophagus is still at risk. Whatever happens there isn't caused by ultraviolet rays, though.

Battery life will be a bit of a problem, it is a 9.6kW device. Your typical good 18650 has 9.6 watt hours in it - runtime of 3.6 seconds isn't all that great.... Silly

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

True, but one would also get a secondary illumination effect from the battery....Not counting the smoke, the flame should be worth a second or two Wink

I think we're all overlooking it's heatsinking capabilites or lack thereof.

talking about heatsinking, going back to my RC cars days i remember buying this heatsink that wrapped around the motor. i still have the car in the garage but it would be a little too big for an  L2 and it would probably look funny. looks similar to this but much bigger.

My brother used to have what seemed like a small fortune in RC cars so I know where you're coming from.
