    Where to you guys "test" your light at night? I mean, we are in Singapore with more than 70% of our land catered for HDB flats and other buildings. I mean you don't go around shining at flats in the night rite? People might think you are siao or what. In parks, you also don't point your light anyhow, you might offend somebody and get hatam. Beside the off shore islands, where is the best place to "shine shine" out lights huh? (especially, if the light got good throw) BTW, I dun't hv many lights only Sl TL-3, some M*glites (which I am thinking to mod) and Inova T3.

    I always test my lights by shining them at the trees in the park just beside my house from my room window. Sometimes will shine directly at those monkeys up to no good in the park playground from my darkened room

    Another good place to test is the cemetary but not many left & also you may see things you don't want to!

    Geez! That's a USD$270 piece of gem!

    Thinking of getting a modified green laser pointer for fun. From z-bolt.com, modified to give out 4.99mW exactly.

    Full specs of the L2 can be found here

    It's basically a 5W LED light with 2 levels, 100 lumens on high (for general area lighting) & 15 on low (for close use) running on 2xCR123 batts. A good general-purpose light but 5W LEDs usually don't have ability to throw the light far. The length of the light is slightly more than 6 inches which makes it a bit long for carrying on the belt with a pouch or clipped on.
    Thanks Cyril... just that i've downloaded the pdf version of SF's catalogue and it says the L2 is only 65 lumens on the high level... i know U2 is 100 lumens at it's highest. hope sheares brings in the U2, but most of the time, after conversion, i find that the US prices are a bit lower... however, most don't ship overseas... any idea where i can order one online? price-wise, i think i wd get the L2, but i'm tempted with the U2...

    Where to gel NyoGel 759G? My M2 need it badly. The grease is "dried up". SF uses Nyogel for their expensive flashlight, I'll follow what SF uses. Scare ordinary grease will hamper the performance of my M2.

    Heh not really... only 3, 4, 5 and 6.

    Suprisingly, #6 gets used the least of these 4. (it costs 10C/min to run... more ex than making a call.... )

    #8 doesent get used either... wayyy too dim.

  17. #657

    Cool

    Folks,

    anyone of you has a Surefire G2 for sale? Pls PM me the condition, price and age of the light. thks.

    Try for a 6P instead. It feels allot more solid cos of the metal build. Anywayz Sheares has stock comming in in the 1st week of january.

    Thanks for advice. :Phone: sheares they says they cannot confirmed went iti will arrived.

    But I am looking at 2nd hand one becasue will be REALLY using it. Heard that the Nitrolon is better than aluminium for daily usage because you can't leave a scratch on the light with rough handling and this is the cheapest surefire one can get. Anyone selling one?

    This thread is so bloody long....Have we beaten the underwater photography thread yet? Anyway, my point is, I have learned a lot about LED torchlights from this thread... when I visit Hong Kong and Shanghai last time, I bought those cheapo "POLICE" lights to be given as gifts and a few models for myself.

    Now I always have a pocketlight whenever I go out, but whenever I forgot to bring it out, something happens that requires the use of a light, like last time a blackout in a Guangzhou residence, or leaving a factory at 3am in the industrial village.

    !@#$%^&&*

    Am thinking of getting a Nuwai 5W torchlight for about S$90.00 next time I visit Guangzhou....
