Dear Mr. Flashlight Manufacturer...

When will be available a flashlight with a nuclear reactor inside to provide power to the LED and never have to use batteries? UNLIMITED runtime yeah!

 

err it was a joke..

 

Umm Please as somebody said, split the ON/OFF and the mode change switch into 2 different swtiches(or 1 switch to on/off in the tailcap as usual, and a twist switch in the head to select modes). Also hide the Strobe/SOS modes (available but hidden)

Dear Mr. Flashlight Manufacturer...

 

Provide good quality led flashlights with better led bins and without sos or strobes of any kind.

Dear Mr. Flashlight Manufacturer...

I want a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell powered flashlight (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proton_exchange_membrane_fuel_cell) .... It shoud be small enought to EDC and able to power my car (not only jump start it)...

 

Seriously,

just what the BLF AA-Y4E should have been: XPG R5, current controlled (no flicker, longer battery life), ultra low, low, high and full power, mode memory, not as big.

small Lcd display    or a row of 5 tiny led lights to tell you battery condition  or ability to start in any mode ..

 

Jump start the car or  reccessitate someone having a heart attack would be usefull too .

 How about a projecting i pad as well

 

Or tints that make your girlfriend prettier

All I want is a reliable, semi-affordable and programmable light with a standard PC interface. I don't care if it's USB, Firewire or a working implementation of RFC 2549. All I care about is that I can hook it up to a PC and either program it using a GUI of some sort or if that's too much too ask, flash it. It doesn't have to run Linux (I'm sure someone will still at least attempt to port it, and more likely than not, succeed), it doesn't have to do the dishes. It just has to work. A guy can dream, right? Wink

I'd love to see the IP over pigeon working! I imagine the interface would be complex though Smile

 

Looks like there are efforts under way to reprogram affordable drivers as MrLite clearly can do. The USB programmer and clip that doesn't want to work a lot of the time do get in the way though.

 

Imagine how much fun you could have trying to get RFC2549 compliant avians to do the job though.....

 

Google did manage the trick on April 1 a few years ago.

Maybe need to get some Google folks on board to figure out how to do it.

Heh. I hope I live to see the day when Google acquires NASA (with the US national deficit where it is, I wouldn't be surprised if the powers that be decided to have a yard sale of sorts - the sad thing is that I'm only half-joking) and puts all that brainpower to use. I'm too young to remember the first moon landing but I still vaguely recall being promised a flying car and the TV would never lie to me, right? Wink

 

And even though it sort of flies in the face of my beliefs on net-neutrality, I'd just have to have some falcons. I still remember coming home with my first 9600 baud modem, which, at that time, was so extraordinarily esoteric (and ridiculously expensive -- I guess that's the price you pay for being an early adopter) that they had to custom-order it from out-of-state. I reckon the kid in me wants to be at the cutting edge of the "avian carrier revoltion"™. Wink
