Headlamps
So i bought a head lamp from walmart the otherday, its the only one advertised with zoom/flood capabilities... 3 aaa's die within an hour. Is there any alternatives here that use a 18350/650, cr123a or cr2 batteries?

What do you want to use it for?

I've got one of these, SKU 5798100. It has a fixed lens with an orange peel reflector and is dimmable. I don't really use it on full very often, it's just for close in, so the batteries last quite a while (14500). It also has a mode memory so it remembers the last setting of the light. It doesn't have a useless strobe mode. It's great to use.

I have a helmet mount so if something happens anywhere riding I have some light...

I got some fishing trace wound on the dérailleur recently which was a real PITA removing. I never carry a phone riding, or not often.

Edit:

I just bought another 14500 flashlight too, an Sofirn SP10 v2 which fits in my pocket.

only after i got into "advanced" vaping and their forums i discovered there's such a big interest in Flashlights and knives.



but i guess i could pick any other object/subject and it would have its own niche of enthusiasts,i just don't get the correlation between vaping,knives and flashlights.

Come to think of it, I've always collected flashlights and with these new LED ones (and li-ion batteries) it's hard not to be interested in them. I have a stash of 14500 batteries so I have to put them to use. And it's not hard to find gear that is really good and cheap.

It's all these li-ion batteries that I've accumulated. You have a reusable power source so you can have the things associated with that. Basically, there's this whole modular "infrastructure" of USB and li-ion products that make it easy to consolidate items together under a defacto standard.

Hard to hold a gun in your hand when your phones in it.
