    I have treated all contact points with ProGold, a contact enhancer, and tarnish and oxidation preventer to ensure your light will attain maximum brightness. After a year of use, you could reapply the treatment, putting a little in the threads of the tailcap, and in the contacts of the battery carriers if you want.
    ProGold treatment prevents oxidation of the contacts and tarnishing and they remain performing well for years.

    In addition, every two or three months the tail cap threads should be cleaned with a rag, to remove the black residue that accumulates when two aluminum surfaces rub together.
    Thanks for the offer!

    Do you sell the ProGold seperate? Couldn't find anything about it on your site - maybe I didn't look long enough?

    CLIFFH,

    Pro-Gold is not just a cleaner, it is a contact enhancer, it is made by Caig's Laboratories and is sold by Radio Shack and some music stores that sell electric guitars and such.

    It is specially helpful in the contact ring that is made out of silver in the inside of the switch. after I highly polish these parts I Pro-gold them to prevent future tarnishing.

    To all members:
    Great responses, I thank you all.

    Good luck.
    Best regards

    A fact on your page (not neccisarily in words) is that you can set newspaper on fire with one of your flashlights. :D

    If the above doesn't work for a fact then: The Borealis is suitable for illumination through heavily tinted automotive windows, in huge indoor structures, and for hundreds of yards outdoors.

    This is awesome of you Jaun. :) Thanks for the oppurtunity.

    Black Bear Bear Cub lights use Lithium-Ion battery technology. Much lighter than NiCd or NiMH batteries of similar capacity.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    In keeping with the Black Bear tradition of customization, we offer a

    choice of 4 reflector types to fit any field illumination requirement. Use

    the Reflector Selector menu to illustrate the reflector type that is

    exactly right for your task.

    "Besides the know-how, quality and attention to detail takes time"

    I've always appreciated the toughness of the MagLite, now it's just about perfect!

    One of my favorite features-

    "The Hard Anodized Type III bezel is matte black, with a slight color mis-match to the host bodies. However the HAIII coating offers increased durability, scratch and ding resistance."

    "The heat produced by the bulb of the BEAR CUB flashlight is not sufficient to warrant a special reflector so the stock reflector is used in the design. In fact, this light remains comfortable to handle even after it has been running for long durations, unlike many
    other high performance flashlights."

    A popular accessory for any Black Bear Flashlight, the Quick Detach Swivel allows the use of lanyards, belts and straps with your light.

    Particularly useful in harsh weather environments or any wet, slippery conditions.

    This simple accessory will insure that your Black Bear Flashlight is with you at all times!
    ------------------------------------------------

    This has to be my favorite feature. I have often wondered how to attatch a lanyard of some sort, and all of my attempts failed. I never thought of this idea.

    Great work and really nice lights.

    Some people (like many of my police officers customers that use the light on duty) can't wait for one hour and a half, so I have developed this 12 volts Bleeding lamp to take the over-voltage in 40 seconds.

    This is an old picture of it (I am doing now a better job)





    This is a close up of the charging port in the Rolls Royce battery carrier, you just plug the RC FAST charger there, and one and a half hour later the batteries are fully charged.



    Thanks to all

    The Home page of the website lists the motto: "When Bright Just Isn't Good Enough!"

    AND

    Black Bear Flashlights are not mass produced. Each one
    is especially hand crafted by Juan C. when you place your
    order. In operating this way, we can ensure you receive the
    individual service and customer support that you deserve
    with lights of our caliber.
    Thats neat that each one is hand crafted.

    Thanks for being so generous! Good looking site also!
