  1. DIY - Do It Yourself
    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...

  3. 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...

    A friend of mine is a hardcore flashlight hobbiest and he made this series. I wanted to share it with you all because this depth of knowledge on the topic is fantastic. He also told met that if you could have any flashlight in an apocalypse, it would be the Malkoff Turn-key HA Flashlight (MD2)...

    Great idea here. A family in AL was in a storm and did not have electricity for a long period of time. They were not preppers and ran out of candles and batteries. They used solar lights that you put outside to light a walkway. They let them charge in the day, and at night, put them in a glass...

    How many Lumens is enough in a flashlight? Or is it MORE than just Lumens? I've just had run of the mill flashlights, low brightness, not very bright for the most part. I bought a Coast PX20 from Lowe's a few days ago. It's rated at 125 Lumens and was around $25 bucks. It kicks my regular mini...

    What do you think is the optimal lumens for a weapons light? This is supposed to be a survivalist forum, so lets talk post SHTF. You and your family have planted a nice plot of peas, cucumbers, squash, snap beans,,,, and whatever else you want. To stop people from looting the garden, and to...

    I'm thinking about getting a half dozen or so 100-hour emergency candles and wanted to see if anyone has any experience with them. Else I'll stick with cyalume lights

    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...

    I have experience driving in some intersections in some places where there is no arbitration in the flow of traffic and prefer it. http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Europe/2008/0912/p07s03-woeu.html

    Like many here I have oil lamps, candles but I have recently changed my focus in this area to those solar powered lawn landscaping lights. I bought a dozen of those cheap $5 ones at homedepot. I am trying to find a way of making them slighty brighter, I switched out their cheap Chinese...
