And some basic dimensions. Driver, MCPCB, Lens, reflector….

I occasionally look on ebay for vintage lights. Like the old copper plated.

That is cool, will have to look at my local DT. Their “Sunbeam” brand Alkaline AA/AAA’s are the best value in disposable batteries I have found…

It looks like old school meets new tech, but done on a budget…

That has 3 rayovac bulbs that I tested somewhere in this forum. They make the flange and non flange types. They are good bulbs and are waterproof.

I’ve never seen anything close to that at any of my dollar trees, maybe at the 99 cent store if it was painted plastic.

Nebo made a light called The Classic a few years ago.

This light looks very similar to the one shown here.

Here’s another chrome led light

If you’re handy with a soldering iron you could swap the low CRI cool white leds for high CRI and much better tint.

2300k-5800k 5mm LED 95+ CRI

Nichia sw45k, sw40, sw35, sw30

Nah make a slug that fits the i.d of the head and stuff a q8 mcpcb and reflector setup in it.
Its not a proper “polished turd” till you spend at least $50 on a $1 light!
