Nice lights. I like the crenellated bezel option that can be added to any light. Its been said before, but the ability to recharge is great too. How many recharge cycles do you expect from a set of batteries?

Interesting lights and website.
Ok, here's my fact:
"As a limited edition special purpose light, the 852 Search & Rescue features a massive 852 lumens with a run time of 1-hour 7 minutes.
This light uses a standard 4D host configuration with four quick change battery canisters as used in the Borealis Model One. Conveniently carried as spares, the quick change canisters are perfect for emergency field reloading of your 852 S&R.
The 852 S&R is appropriate for use in emergency vehicles, ambulances, fire trucks, police cruisers and helicopters, This is the one you reach for when you want massive power and long runtime, the one to reach for in fog, snow, and heavy rain.
In keeping pace as an easily accessible flashlight we provide a set of brackets to hold the light in your emergency vehicle."
Very cool idea, no fumbling around a vehicle for a flashlight. If I might make a suggestion, a vehicle charging unit along with the brackets?

Now I am using MAHA (Powerex) 2700’s and giving them two “forming charges” and matching them for capacity before
they are allowed inside the flashlight.

So, theoretically you can espect my BOREALIS to give you 833 hours for a $30.00 set of batteries.
50 minutes run time for 1,000 recharges equal 50.000 minutes or 833 hours.
I did the math a long time ago when I had batteries giving me 35 minutes, and the 123's that others lights use were cheaper.
But doing new math, we can compare the BOREALIS with the Surefire M-6 (500 lumens for 20 minutes on six 123's batteries @ $2.00 per battery)
That means that every 20 minutes you are spending to feed the M-6, $12.00 and every hour $36.00
So, $36 times 833 hours equal $29.,988.00
So, theoretically the Surefire will spend $29,988.00 in batteries before it can equal the $30.00 pack of nine rechargeable batteries in the BOREALIS.

I did read around and I do think that these lights must be one of the best things out there. The one that caught my eye wasn't about the lights at all: "My father took pride in the fact that when he fixed a watch, it was better than the original factory product. To that effect, he went beyond a manufacturer’s tolerances and tightened them until no discernible play in the parts could be felt.
That's craftsmanship. It seems that nobody takes that much pride anymore in their work. Most guys (companies) would rather make 1000 units a day that are good enough, there are few guys that would rather make 5 a day that are perfect. It seems that Juan's dad was one of those guys, and it's been passed on to him.
Thanks for the opportunity.

What is the purpose of the " Crenellated Bezel "?
November 17th, 2006 08:37 AM
Such a bezel turns the light from a blunt striking implement to a cutting striking implement.
My fact for the contest is that blackbearflashlights.com's registration expires on 07-Oct-2007, according to whois.net. :D

Isn't this technically NOT from his site?

My lights have gained a reputation for incredible brightness because of those things that I do, reducing internal resistance to a minimum, so that more voltage reaches the bulb and the light emits more lumens than the competition.
Thanks for the opportunity black bear.
