Headlamp question

12 posts in this topic

Its kinda hard to explain but I'll try. The princeton lamp has a steady beam and surrounding light. You can point the beam almost straight out and still have plenty of light shine close to your feet to see to walk. And it is very bright light. I like to say that its similar to those really bright car headlights. So yes it does have a steady beam, but also produces light 170 degrees around it.

Bright light? I buy the brightest LED's made and I'm sure they are the same suppler Princeton and Petzal uses. There nice but if your looking for Bright White light, LED's cant give you that. Think of a flashlight in the fog and thats what you get with an LED. So ya there good and are easy on batteries but still not as bright as a krypton bulb. I buy LED's separately and the uses are endless.

Eh..Surface Tension

I have been kicking around the idea of rigging up some LED lights on my Vex, I like the low amp draw deal.

Have you tried this and where do you get the components. Can you get the goody's at Radio Shack?

Thanks,
Ed

Surface Tension,
I disagree with your flashlight in the fog statement. The Princeton Tec Auroras are much brighter than that.

These babies are bright and white.

The Princeton Tec Aurora LED Headlamp- does it have a focussed enough beam of light to satisfy my needs or is it a more diffuse
beam of light so as to not spook fish, etc?
I'd like a headlamp that shoots a relatively focussed beam of light- will this one make me happy?

    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?
