Little light

It does take a couple of Lithium batteries, but I only paid $5.95 for the light (and the batteries) so :shg ... and it was exactly what I needed for there.

Sorry, didn't mean to get us off topic. :)

Dang it Charles!

:o

I am called the Gadget Guy by a lot of people who know me and now you've got me goin on a whole new thirst. I've just about got my CFO ( Chief Financial Officer) talked into a Honda Generator and now I'm going to have to start sneaking more of these LED lights in. I have a couple already with Head Straps that I dearly love for keeping both hands free. But these look great. I also now want a Car top carrier like yours.

Hey, maybe you need to create a '' Positive Gadget Thread''. Now that would be way good. Think of all the time you would save all of us.

Keep em comin.

>>five a day

Surprisingly fast, Randy! Problem is you don't know which flashlight is going to push you over the edge

>>where

Do a froogle search (the shopping engine of Google search) for "palight."

http://froogle.google.com/

In case you don't know about Froogle ... it's designed for cheap folks like me who worry they might not find the cheapest price on the world wide web. You can search for anything you're interested in buying.

Keith, I, too, love gadgets.

Problem is, if I compose a complete gadget list, my wife might find the list and figure out how much I spend on some of this stuff.

I admit, I'm sick. But I'm also not ready to seek treatment yet.

As a matter of fact, I'm headed over to East Peoria this morning, taking a little trip to the nearest Harbor Freight ... because I've hear Harbor Freight is selling a neat little flashlight that runs on a single Lithium 123 battery.

And, I've got to have one.

if you can't beat them...

If you can't beat them - buy stock.

Charles, Pam is going to wonder what's happening with her retirement money - buy stock in PALight now and try to stay ahead of the addiction, since it seems bigger than all of us. Make that addiction pay for itself! :)

Harbpt Freight

Harbor Freight is way gooooood. Now I have to go there today. There's one about 15 minutes from my house and it's always on my route when I do a ''gadget run''. You know; Sears tool department, Harbor Freight, TJ MAX ( thanks to my Wife), Williams Sonoma, Campers World, Cost Plus World Market, etc, etc.

Thanks a lot.

;)

Yeah, but Keith ... let me warn you, the Harbor Freight flashlight is a Xenon flashlight (not LED) that uses a single 123 Battery (about US$5 a piece at Walmart)(batteries cheaper on the net)(battery not included) and probably only shines for about a half hour per battery.

A 123 battery is a 3-volt lithium battery (sometimes used in digital cameras).

The flashlight is not all that practical to anyone except a flashaholic. (I can recycle my worn out 123 batteries in one of several 123-battery powered LED lights I own.

I just got back from the East Peoria Harbor Freight. They don't carry the light yet.

A flashlight that only lasts a half hour on fresh batteries!

You gotta be kidding me!

Nope, I'm not.

Unlike an LED light, that will burn forever on a worn out set of batteries (well, maybe not forever) ... lights such as the Harbor Freight lights are "put in the trunk of your car with a couple of lithium batteries (10 year shelf life) and then forget them until you have a nighttime emergency and need a brief blast of light."

If you need this type of light, the best one is sold at any Walmart .... a Brinkmann LX flashlight that runs off two (included) lithium 123 batteries.

That sucker is bright as all get out (for about an hour). Ask webmaster Michael about that flashlight I used to light up his Jeep's engine compartment while he looked for the source of his trouble.

The Brinkmann LX at Walmart would probably be a better emergency light that the Harbor Freight light ...

The Brinkmann LX xenon light (at Walmart) will only run for an hour on two 123 batteries ... so you get an hour of intense light for just under $10 of batteries (cheaper, much cheaper on the internet).

Why in the world would you want a light like this?

Well, imagine a pitch dark tire change on a busy highway ... chasing a lost dog or kid into some pitch black woods ... or helping a buddy in the dark, peer into his engine compartment (why do men do that, by the way?)
