DeLight

Does the DeLight have a momentary pushbutton switch?

The switch on the DeLight can be used in momentary fashion. In the "on" position, you can blink the light by partially depressing the switch.

I just received the Klutch rechargeable Cree bulb lights in today.

Man, these things are bright! Better than I expected and thus far I'm pretty pleased.

It has a super-bright, central "beam" that is about 18" in diameter at 15ish feet. In addition to the "beam" it throws a fair amount of dimmer light to the outside that is sufficient to completely illuminate a pitch-black 10'x10' bedroom well enough to identify everything in the room.

I'll add more info as it comes, but just playing around with it today; I think these lights will be great companions.

It has replaced my Surefire Z2 (LED) as my carry light.

Recently bought a Coleman flashlight at Wal-Mart. Uses CREE tech, and is rated at 140 lumens for the white light (also has red & green LED's). So far, it's been a great $30 light. Probably will pick up a few more for around the house...

Not a clip, but a lanyard is included if that's any consolation.

Rechargeable Batteries...you may wish to consider the Sanyo eneloops.



Search them out on Amazon as the prices and the packaging (number of types and sizes varies).

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_0_...op&sprefix=ene

I just purchased item 11, which includes AA and AAA batteries, charger and carrying case.

BTW this is the best test of "budget" LED lights I have seen so far.

Bill you should provide a DeLight for testing. Good exposure.

Budget LED Lights Continued

The Romisen lights seem to get good marks for LED lights in the $10-25 range.
http://www.shiningbeam.com/servlet/t...hts/Categories
Looks like Shining Beam has a similar discount code when searched.

I still like the 4Sevens and Fenix for price vs. quaility best. I have had three that are used almost daily for over two years and still going strong.

The Quarks in addition to a 10 year warranty come with a nice set of accessories.
The high power (light) engines currently are the Cree Emitter XPG R5.

Discount Sales
Most all retailers (online) have discount codes which are available if sought. For example everything on the 4Sevens site uses the CPF8 code for a 8% discount. Many have closeouts, purging inventory of prior models. Sacrafice a few lumens and save some $$.


Example of accessories. Clips are a personal preferance. Many manufactures offer their lights with and without, some are removable and some are even reversable. The clip might act as the detent to keep it from rolling.

I purchased a "cheap" Coleman brand LED flashlight from Walmart it was about the $18-$20 range. This little light was brighter than I would have thought and very small only about 4.75" by 1.5" in diameter. I believe the package rated it at 75 lumens annodized black aluminum with the cannelure cap and a lanyard. It takes 3 AAA batteries and it has a good run time on the batteries. It is made in China, but most everything you buy on the cheap nowadays is.

Sams Club has a two-pack of LED lights labeled "Serengeti" for $28.87 (Type in stock #569309) . These lights are very similar to the Coleman model and on the package they are rated at 160 lumens and use 3 AAA batteries. The next time I go to Sams I am going to purchase the lights and give 'em a try. Unfortunately these lights are also made in China.

An LED light that runs from 3AAA is usually a piece of crap. They usually rely on the voltage drop of the cells under load to provide a semblance of not-quite-regulation and tend to use cheap components, like low-quality plastic reflectors, imprecise TIR optics, and low-bin LEDs. That's if you're lucky enough to find one with high-flux LEDs and a metal body. They also tend to have poor thermal connections between the LED package and the outside of the light.
