Surefire 8AX Options?
« on: October 07, 2006, 09:10:36 PM »
Yes, after being bitten by the hotwire bug, I'm looking around the house here and considering what lights I have that don't get much use for one reason or another.

Lo, and behold, I grab the 8AX.

What kind of tips or tricks are available to soup up this light?  I'm thinking something along the lines of ROP-like performance, but with a trimmer form factor.

Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks. :)

Hello DonL,

I am enjoying extended run time and a brighter and whiter light by using a NiMh battery pack.  I have several prototypes being field tested and hope to have some replacement packs ready for sale by the end of this month.

Over on CandlePowerForums in the battery section there is a thread "Twice the Runtime and Brighter" for more information.

I am not aware of lamp changes for better performance.
