@accumulator@narfcake- you mean you can save battery life by storing batteries in a frige? Since it’s 12:15 in the New Year, you can answer this whenever,…Thanks! BTW, Have a Great One!! That goes to All You Meh-teers!!
@narfcake@shahnm- I know not about any per chance of any of your predictabilitiness, but you plainly mentioned u had more AAs than AAAs by the last time you looked in the Frige, so this sounds mo like confessionalness, or an itelleverybodymybusines disorder, or id for short! Nevertheless, since you have eludiness habits, I see you do practice a Batteriesinmyfrige syndrome! I thank you for the heads upiness. Thank Ya, Thank Ya Very Much!!
@decoratedwarvet@narfcake On the contrary, I verily propound that I have never once disclosed my battery stock status, either in absolute or relative terms. My AA and AAA battery aggregates, as with my C, D, 9v, CR2032 et al, remain proprietary information.
@narfcake@shahnm-then someone refered you to me, so evidently they know your top-secret obcessive compulsive disorders, or great idea activities. Whatever,…as I said, Thanks!! NOTE: Maybe, wikileaks, or Russian intell hacked into your brain, or ur Emails,…Or some Fat man on a bed did! If you wanna know who refered you to me, well, that’s proprietary gossip! Yea, we talk about ya’ll All the X!! No, I’ll give U that info If YWI.
@narfcake@shahnm-Okay, I’ll snitch,… narfcake did refer you to me, When they started talking about batteries, narf was the 1 who mentioned the ‘frige’ & posted that comment @ 12:12AM exacto! Please, don’t tell him that I said he told me about you which means that at some point you told him about yourself! Otherwise, how would he know to tell me about you?¿
I dunno, I’ve been disappointed before by keyring flashlights that were supposed to be surprisingly bright. I need to know if my car is surrounded by alligators before they try to jump me, so it has to be surprisingly bright from a good distance.
@TheFLP My worst parking lot adventure was after watching Alien in its original release. And then realizing my idiot best friend had parked behind the theater. And we now had to walk down a creepy, dark alley, KNOWING that the Alien was lurking behind every dumpster and in every shadow.
There was some justice though. He said when he got home he hurried into bed, and pulled the covers up for safety, then realized he’d left the porch light on. His Mom doesn’t like the porch light being left on. He now has to choose between the wrath of Mom, or being eaten by the Alien. He said he made it to the porch light switch in about three steps (which is impossible), one in his room, one in the hallway, and one to the switch.
Tempted. I already have too many flashlights, though. These have both a hook and magnets for just slapping up while you’re working and need an extra hand to hold the light, like in an attic or crawlspace. And with a few of them, you can leave one along your way to light up your path as you move materials and tools in and out to the work area.
@jro2020 I bought these because they weren’t rechargeable. My old rechargeable shop light was left plugged-in in the garage and the battery stopped holding a charge. I suppose I charged it too long and didn’t use it enough. Temperatures in the garage probably didn’t help.
Joby Gorillatorch. Bendable magnetic tripod light. AA batteries. Multiple brightness settings, including annoying strobe modes.
Good luck finding this one, it’s discontinued. They were $30 or so, and scalpers are asking over way $100 now. But you can occasionally find them at a reasonable price. The last I bought were from Amazon vendors in Japan. They took a while to get here, but the price was reasonable.
Or the Gorillatorch Blade, with a single Cree LED.
Striker FlexIt A flexible LED array, with central spot. Bend it concave to focus the light, or convex to spread it. Magnetic base, AA batteries, multiple brightness settings, including seizure/strobe modes.
I work part of my day in a dimly light warehouse and I am now in possession of way to many flashlights because of it. I have a Dorcy very similar to this design but it is 250 lumens and has a pocket clip which is very helpful. I have a headlamp on my head and the Dorcy hanging from the front of my my polo shirt and this is usually enough to find the box I need. Can’t thank my company enough from going from colored labels on the box to black and white labels that all look the same. By thank you I mean fuck you. Is colored ink really more expensive then your employee hourly wage? Oh wait yeah it probably is since I know what you pay but you still suck for changing the labels. Anyway,also have two much bigger Dorcy flashlights with what looks like a similar hook and the hook broke on the first use on one and the hook broke on the otherwhile trying to take it out of the package. I will say that Dorcy doesn’t lie about it lumens if it says 250 lumens it is if it says 600 lumens it is I have bought several flashlights from Amazon and there is no way the lumens are what they say they are. Also I live in Wilmington, NC and we experienced the end of days with that Hurricane this year and had zero power for two weeks so yeah buy those flashlights people. I do agree with the first few post that say AAA flashlights suck because they eat batteries way to fast and with this being 650 lumens I am sure the life of the batteries will be very short lived. I did pay 24 dollars for one 600 lumen flashlight that looks like a regular flashlight so 4 flashlights for 16 is a great deal. Maybe I can put on in every corner of the warehouse and stop looking like a miner when I work.
Rechargeable batteries have come a long way babe! I highly reccomend ‘eneloop’ by Panasonic Ni-MH batteries, rechargeable approx 2,100 times, made in Japan. Only takes 4 hrs to fully charge. Remember the early model ones took at least 24 hrs to charge and the chargers were bulky, ugly PITA’s. Plus, Costco carries a streamlined progressive kit with a case, make size ‘C’ and ‘D’ by slipping an ‘AA’ into a jacket. $30 kit is on sale for $20 about 3-4 times yearly.
@HoneyIMHome Eneloops are great, but so are some of the competition. Some tests I’ve read rated the GP Recyko (what a name!) higher than the Eneloop. I’ve got both, and they seem equal in ordinary use.
$20 for 16, and the price hasn’t gone up in two years.
I’ve been using the tenergy D cells (10kmAh and 8k mAh for the low discharge ones) in my modified mag lights, and love them. Eneloop in D sleeves just weren’t cutting it. <10 minute run times, vs now i’ll get nearly an hour on the highest brightness.
Arrived today and they’re actually pretty nice. Should be useful with all the options to hang/stick/clamp them places. The batteries are generic alkalines so it may be best to store them outside of the actual flashlight until needed. Not like any batteries from meh products have ever leaked before or anything…
