Sometimes I don’t even wanna know why certain things are fluorescing…

This reminds me of the pictures someone on BLF posted several years ago. He used a UV light to light up his backyard and 100 scorpions lit up in the picture.

He then went around with some thick gloves and put them all into a bucket.

Did he proceed to feed his chickens with the bucket’s contents?

The new Osram “white flat” adds a lot of fun in flashlights that I used to call “throwers”… NOW they throw !
B158B :

(okay, this one is a black flat…) M3XS :

You get it, throwers are my new passion ! The aspherics are true lightsaber, and now that night is there as early as 5pm I have plenty of time (and excuses) to play with them ! Oh, sorry I have to check the chicken, better take a few lights with me Big Smile

"-X3-, is there any place in your house without a flashlight ?" 

My Flashlight public album (mods, emitter swaps, eye candy)

My reviews channel (French language, Olight, Thorfire, Sofirn, Lumintop : 60+ lights tested)

My personal channel (including Olight SR mini, S1, S2, S1A and S-mini disassembly)

Lucky you, X3, in this half of the egg it’s taking until well past 7 for the sun to be gone completely. With my current work routine, that doesn’t leave me with even 2 hours before I have to settle in bed. The slight flipside of it taking longer for sunrise is negated by my mega agitated pre-job morning schedule Sick

As such, I request more lightsaber photos to live vicariously through this cursed summer! Pretty please Big Smile

Currently enjoying the XHP-70 N2 5C Chimera

Here it is in moonlight mode with the dome from an led bulb as a diffuser. Nice secure fit.

No diffuser, 4” from a wall, camera image compensation disabled to show the hole. The emitter is bit off center but close enough for now.

My Photon Freedom Micro(s), of course
  • Click to on, click to off
  • But wait, if you keep clicking, you get Morse code/signalling mode!
  • Want dimmer light? It’s continuously dimmable.
  • Use it as a beacon for your keychain? 3 flashing modes and 1 SOS
  • Want a longer lasting beacon? It has a secret 50% mode!
  • It has a store demo mode (shut off after 30 seconds) that can be reactivated, to prevent battery drain
  • The switch is an actual separate input. It doesn’t just connect and disconnect the battery, like all twisty lights.
  • Comes in all the colors of the rainbow – including UV and IR
  • Water resistant, made in USA, lifetime warranty, comes with necklace and positionable clip etc.

==that is an awesome UI, I have a photon – why can;t any big lights just use that UI and BDWI (be done with it)?

Yeah they have an AA version but I think it’s out of production
