  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I made a quick dash into Walmart today for some camo paint (another story) and wanted to check out the motion lights. As I don't like working with wiring, I wanted something that wasn't hard wired. I came across this guy for $30...

  3. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    So it's getting to be that time again. We moved into our new house last June and dragged along our whole garden in plastic pots with reasonable success given the late start. Unfortunately the tomatoes and peppers were a disaster because we hit frost before we had many change to red. This year...

    I got my young son a Little Tykes Police Car and I am trying to add lights to it to make it look like the real police cruiser. It will have a blue/red mini light bar on top, functional headlights and tail lights, and strobes. Another guy did something like this before and I am trying to put my...
  6. Urban Survival
    Hi All Today I picked up a spotlight for my shed outside the back of my house. Also got a remote switch, so I can turn it on at will and light up my backyard to see whats going on. This got me thinking about SHTF lighting/security. I have a decent generator setup with transfer switch, a deep...

    I was at Walmart and noticed they had a dizzying array of different brands and lamp types. LEDs, Cree, etc.. Most expensive doesn't necessarily always mean the best. I intend on using the HL for power-outages, fishing, camping, hiking, shtf. What brand and type is a good, all-around...

    Hey Guys, So I looked for a thread on this but I haven't seen it discussed yet. How many of you have a nice new LED flashlight that dims, flashes or any number of other cool features? If I'm correct in assuming a Coronal Mass Ejection will do the same thing to electronics as an EMP think...
  10. General Discussion
    I was just wondering, do modern LED lights contain printed boards that could be destroyed by an EMP? The LED itself should be okay, but most lights consume batteries for max brightness, then fade quickly, rather than a gradual fade. I'm imagining that there is some type of circuitry involved...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've heard how electronics would be fried in case of an EMP attack (electromagnetic pulse) and am wondering if LED flashlight emitters would be fried too, or they'd be safe because they're so small and wouldn't catch enough of the pulse to be affected. I keep a couple in a metal safe just to be...

    surefire seems to be a bit pricey compared to brands like fenix , are the surefire lights worth it? or are they just more expensive because of the name. im looking at getting a surefire 6p led defender or a fenix ld10 or quark aa for an edc/defensive light.
  14. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    I am a flashlight junkie. At last count I had like 30. I have a lot of LED lights and I have replaced most of my Surefire lights with Cree drop in LED emitters. Something to keep in mind, in the event of an EMP attack or detonation, Modern high output LED lights are microprocessor driven and...
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    How many of you have an LED flashlight? The next time you think about buying a new flashlight, you might want to consider an LED. The bulb life is somewhere around 100,000 hours, and three AAA batteries are supposed to give around 80 hours of light. A few months ago I started phasing out my...
