Yep, 18350.

I want a good headlamp, but dont want a cheap one and the good ones are pricey

RE: What did you get today?
Indeed. But the NW Spark I have (460lm) was well worth the money ($100 or thereabouts). For night navigation in a forest, the 3 lumens from the Zebralight H50 (I think I paid $49 just when they were launched) in lowest mode is fine and it's a lot lighter and more comfortable to wear than the Spark. Especially with a lithium AA in it - it'll also work with a 14500 but it isn't any brighter (66 lumens max)

The cheap ones I've had have all been junk. Apart from the not all that cheap Ultrafire 18650 one which does around 110l at full output. But it is very, very picky about the 18650s it will work with. It actually works best with a fake TF flame that seems to be exactly the right length as long as I apply King Kong strength to tightening the end cap.

Here I have 2x bottles of Don's Vanilla Custard juices, one is Don's own DIY recipe and the other is a GVC clone. Don's own recipe is just absolutely delicious and the GVC clone doesn't taste as nice but it does need a couple of weeks steeping so hopefully that will sort it out.


Thanks Don, I'm really enjoying your quick custard Drinks
Only problem now lis sourcing a good replacement for the NannyBakes cream flavour, finding out where my patient got the French (As in made in France with a label in French) vanilla flavour and finding anyone who sells Tino D'Milano flavouring. Got that from the 28VapesLater closing down sale. Fortunately I have enough of those for a while.

RE: What did you get today?
Got my Panzer SS 26650 mod in today from focalecigs. Pretty fast shipping this time. Damn this thing is heavy!! It works great though. All the threading seems really nice. The spring is a bit wimpy but that isn't too big of a deal. This thing could second as a pair of brass knuckles. As a kid I used to carry two D cell batteries in my pockets for fights. This would work better I'm thinking. Not that I plan on getting into any fights or anything. I could probably still kick someones ass but I'd be hurting like hell the next day even if they never laid a finger on me.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

Bic lighter worked good as a fist pack. I went for stealth with the 4nine, you went for the big guns

LOL that's the problem with going to a brick and mortar. It's like a kid in a candy shop. None around here to temp me though, probably a good thing.

Wow congrats on the Panzer Brad that looks real nice I'm loving my Copper 18650 version. I still think the SS one is the best looking though.. you configure yours the same as me Tongue

Some other folks have the skirts upside down Big Grin

@Scott congrats on your haul from your B&M visit, there's a few threads on the hammer and some good modifications done by a few guys to improve things.
I was using gords1001 hammer earlier this week and loved it Good

Probably my favorite and most used light these days. Wish it was reverse clicky, but the reverse clicky switches I got from SF felt like trash in use, so had to go back to the forward...
Awesome light!
