    It's ok to store the AW 10440's in the col car right, as well as the 2 lithium's?

    I found [This] on CPF as a very general temperature guide for lithium batteries. On page 1 of [This] datasheet on the Energizer L91 you can see at 0 degrees Celsius they are much better than Alkaline versions.

    If I lived in the tundra I would probably put them in a small Pelican case, or something. The thought alone of being that cold though makes me sad. :(

    I have a Peak with some sort of Luxeon going in the passaround box.
    I have one with three LEDs that I like and keep by my bed.

    Still thinking/stewing on what else I want to donate to the give away thread.

    I was just playing around and figured something pretty cool out. I put a GITD o-ring in the gap between the head and body. It does not come out and does not get in the way of turning on the light. What do you guys think...?

    I've been putting GITD rings in various nooks and crannies in lights for a long time now. I think it's great if it doesn't affect the functionality of the light! =)

    What kind of discharge curve and battery life can be expected from the new AAA Eigers with XPG2, 200-lumen emitters. It seems unreasonable to expect 200 lumens for much time at all from an AAA-sized cell, so I'm wondering how quickly and how steeply it drops off. How much max output does a standard lithium primary cell give it? Thanks!

    I made the switch to a black lanyard tonight. What do you guys think... Here is the progress.

    Blue.
    The colour is nice and bright, it compliments the light. The bead on that one matches better as well even though there's no Trit.

    I agree with Shur that the bead in the first pic matches the stainless steel the best. The black paracord looks sharp too though. Are those just stacked 2-strand Matthew Walker's knots in the second and third pics?

    How did you do you connect your snake knot?

    Our questions are similar. =)

    Now that I think about it though, a 2-strand MW seems like a snake knot.
