    Any to recommend? preferably in singapore......cheers!
    I called up Sheares Marketing and was told there are 2 brands you can consider. It is the Streamlight Twin Task series flashlights. There are different versions and sizes but mainly Twin Task provides user with the option of LED and Xenon incandescent in just a click of the button.

    Alternatively, you can check out LiteWave for the 3000 series flashlights. The 4000 series uses size 'D' batts. I saw 2 pieces of these in Sheares Marketing but I am not sure if they are the 3000 or 4000 series. You can call them up at 63330136/7/8 or visit them at

    All Surefire lover,

    I got news that Surefire is not manufacturing any lights for consumer in the first quarter of the 2004 as they will be concentrating productions on the new LX200 weapons light. If you are interested in Surefire's products, please wait no more or you will have to wait another 3 months.

    Regards,

    Default "c" sized torchlight

    Nikonian Foo --- U can also consider the pelican lights, the led supersabrelite/sabrelite and the non led versions use "c" cells... and thier built pelican tough with all sorts to be used in hazardous conditions ratings etc... they look quite neat too, some people may diss it claiming that the beam is too narrow, but in actual use, i find little difference between the more "flood" like lights.....

    If I'm not wrong, the temperature in the glove box can reach 40-50 degrees celsius. I think high power torches that uses CR123s or any other lithium batteries should be okay. Remember that nimh batteries reach around that temperature when charged in a 1 hour charger (or any other "fast" charger) too.

    As for the o-ring issue, Andy has a point, but the silicon grease should hold up because if I'm not wrong, low quality o-rings will just crack regardless of silicon grease or no silicon grease. Higher quality ones should last a lot longer, but still will give way in the end. Maybe 5 years? This is from experience, so your mileage may vary.

    I won't worry about the lithium batterys at all, even after 10 years in the glove box in a car under the sun everyday.

    Yes I did. No need to thank me. I am just helping out. It's just a call away.

    Thanks for sharing...That is but from a designer's point of view...I recall reading somewhere in National Geographic that in Namibia or some third world country people are using LEDs to replace flourescent and tungsten lamps to ease on power consumption so as to cut cost. Though the LEDs are more expensive to acquire, they are in fact sponsored. Now if only I know where I placed that issue.....

    hi,

    Could you guys recommend a good torch for diving? mainly diving. most the the torch you guys have talked about are water proof but mostly don't state if its for diving purposes.

    i was recommended this brand Longbow by one of the Dive shops, its on LED and very very bright white light.. well it cost a bomb.. well at least to me.

    Thanks!

    hey thanks,

    i have checked out these 2 brands already, and also the ikelite and pelican range, Halcyon, dive rite, etc,etc

    but their very bright torches ranged from 200-1kplus

    not so bright yellow beams are around 20-200 bucks.

    i have seen a few divers using LED torches and damn are they bright,

    so i was kinda wondering if there's other brands out there which could offer a better range then the more common dive torches, would like to keep it small yet bright.

    thanks :P

    Hi guys,

    there is something you might be interested to know. I was surfing in CandlePowerForums and came across this site Hyper-Lux V Flashlights by TNC. A look in their web site looks very promising. If their claims about a 5 watt Luxeon V LEDs running at 120 lumens is true, why bother to purchase the Surefire L4, L5, & L6? The only reason to go for Surefire then would only be the looks and built that's all.
