Here’s my first post! I am so new to all of this I don’t understand half of what is being discussed in these posts under the “General Info” much less when I start looking around at the other posts here. I have been on this site for more than 2 hours trying to find a post that has definitions so I can learn the terminology but have not been able to find anything. Is there such a post?
I am looking for a low budget flashlight and would like to keep a first purchase to less than US $40-$50 or so, for the flashlight, batteries and charger. If the charger I have listed below will work than I will just throw the monies I would spend for that into the flashlight and batteries. I got interested in getting a “bright” flashlight with a a variable focus from a flood to a longer throw while looking on eBay. Is there one flashlight that does both or should I buy 2 less expensive flashlights that separate the two focus’s? I have no idea what to look for and the more I read the posts here the more I realize I really don’t know what I’m looking for. What are your suggestions for a flashlight/s?
I have an model airplane charger, a Triton 2, 7A Charge, 3A Discharge, 10 Cycles, 1-5S Lipo, 1-24 NICd/MH, with temperature monitoring. Will this work for the batteries commonly used in these flashlights? I am assuming that it will but would like confirmation as none of the chargers I see listed have any specs on them. They just state they are this or that battery listed at 3.7 volts. Here’s a link for the specs on the Triton 2 if needed: http://www.robotmarketplace.com/products/images/gpmm3153-manual.pdf
My next question is the Triton 2 overkill or should I just make it easier and buy a less expensive one that plugs into the 110 AC outlet that will handle my current and possible future needs? Any suggestions?
I probably have missed asking some very basic question in all of this but I’ll start here and if you have any further information as to what I should be looking for please do tell!
