I can't remember the classic....was it the long slender one with a spherical ball like end?

This link explains the differences but looks like both are 1.900 mAh?

I've been absent from the flashlight scene for awhile, nice to see allot of the same members here.
 The last couple of years spent touring the other toy forums, knifes, camp gear ect... but bright objects attract :)
 So what is new? My last lights were Mr B's CHAMELEON, couple of Fire Fly III's, oh and a TNC x-bin.
Is there new teck? what is the brightest led now? ........I know...and I will enjoy catching up within this forum

If I had a say, then I'd prefer HA-NAT, NO Trit slots, Dragon Driver...  but since I'm getting the "leftovers" from Light Hound, I guess I don't really have a say huh?  As long as I get one, I'm sure I'll be happy though, so no worries.  :)

My apologies KingSmono...:notworthy:

starfiretoo - I think Lips will (or has) open/ed a separate thread for the black chroming as I am not going to be involved in it except for building the lights after the process is done.

PKT - very sorry sir, see my comment to KingSmono above...

Mike75, 45/70's comments are just about spot on. :thumbup:

Kenster, gotcha covered, it's been noted on the list.

No apologies needed Mr B, it's always been first come first serve :)
besides I've enough lights for two lifetimes but yours are the ones I enjoy the most.
 I'm about to get into a little light with Wheels.....the Prius Hybrid, after driving V8 trucks for 20+ years
this will be the other mileage extreme getting 45-65 MPG. I rented one few weeks back and at night
with no noise I felt like I was driving a flashlight.

 congrats to those that got in......
Kenster I don't think you've missed a light in the last 5 years!

Darn Charlie

 I'm off the net for a few weeks and you come out with a new light.....@#!#
Just cause I went bad on the last deal.....knew I should have done that one
regardless of conditions.
 Well put me down if the list kicks back in. The pics on the original are awsome,
nice work as always.

Lots of lights use laptop batteries, the 18650's are a common laptop battery I believe.

Huh, wha... something about Troy's ass??? :)  ;)

While I appreciate Charlie's sentiments, I for one hope that you continue producing these little gems. It is an art form, a craft. No cheapie buy'em by the dozen light will ever compare. Troy let me play with his Ti Chammie one night, and I was so amazed at the quality of the light. I still am. I will own one of your lights.

It reminds me of an old adage that my grandfather used to tell: "You'll know quality when you touch it." It is so true with your lights, and a few others out there on the market.

Well said  :thumbup:

I finally bought 4AA eneloops for about US$13 last week at the IT Show here to use in my back-up/stand-by Nikon SB-80DX strobe flash and none too soon either as the 4 2600mAh Titaniums were near flat!  :o

Edit - Darn,  :( found them a bit cheaper here. (USD price shown)

Has anyone seen the eneloop Solar Charger on sale anywhere yet?

I have not seen the charger yet but it looks nice, there is supposed to be a hand warmer too.

Talk Story / Re: The Personal Fan MOD What do you think?

Yes, I heard that Lithium AA may not be good for all devices because of the potential to drain at a higher rate into the device. But remember, voltage drives current. Current can't push itself. So, the slightly higher voltage probably won't hurt most electronics unless they are pretty sensitive.

I had bought a batch of 50 of those "partially used" Lithium's.  Aside from having them in my Fenix lights, I put them in my remote controls, even had a pair in my wireless mouse.  So far, so good.  There were just so many I had to get rid of them before they just die of old age.

I put two in my little pocket fan and WHOA.  That thing blew a breeze that could blow back your toupee.  However, it had the odd habit of severely draining one battery before the other. So, I gave that up.  At first I thought it was due to the starting voltage being slighly off. Remember, these were partially used.

But it happens even with Alkalines I measured to be the exact same voltage.  Only there, the difference is no more than a few tenths of a volt, so it keeps running.  With lithium one battery could litterally drain half way into the red dead zone on the battery tester, while the other was still in the green.

Odd. Can anyone explain why a motor device drains lithiums uneven like that?

Oh well seems my dream fan has died but I came across this old post by Tron3, I wonder if he was using protected cells....if so it shouldn't matter if one dies before the other- right?
 I just want a fan that blows like crazy and run for the better part of the day.

This is great, I was worried there would be no interest in this thread.
Mr B , I had or may still have some old drawings that I did years ago for the housing etc.
In your concept I assume you had a motor selected, this is the starting point....overall dimensions
mounting pattern and such. If you have something in mind motor wise that I could work around I'd be glad to help. I have
access to a number of CAD systems.
I also have an old friend that casts his own props, he's a RC nut, but
may be of help if and when the time came for a conceptual run to get a blade sized to the housing.

This is product that I personally have wanted for years, thank you for the response.

Regards Phil :thumbup:
