    Nice looking site

    The EXP 852 uses a custom machined
    host and huge power source containing
    11 - high energy rechargeable cells in a
    specially constructed Cadillac battery
    carrier

    This light uses the same high
    temperature switch, reflector and Pyrex
    lens found in the Borealis.

    The EXP 852 utilizes a Cadillac battery
    carrier with charging clips like the
    Borealis Model Two.

    The bigger reflector of the Bear Cub will throw the light much farther. My test

    target is 88 yards distant. The Surefire C-3, with 200 lumens barely

    illuminates it. The Bear Cub significantly illuminates the target and much

    more detail can be observed.

    Plus the Borealis can catch paper on fire.
    Even if I don't win I see one of your lights in my future.

    Well, I learned Juan hand builds these lights on a per order basis. As a craftsman I like that, especially when that craftsman not near slave labor in Asia!

    The Rolls Royce Borealis uses a RC Fast charger plug-in charging

    port. Charging is complete in 1 1/2 hours without removing batteries

    from the carrier! This is the ultimate in speed and convenience!

    You sell a bulb specifically to discharge the "overcharge" on the batteries in 40 seconds. That takes the voltage from ~13 to the acceptable 12 which is stil overclocking the bulb but won't flash it out.

    The polar bear flashlight uses no battery carrier. You just insert the cells as with any standard flashlight with one important exception. The Polar Bear comes complete with 3-rechargeable batteries good for hundreds of recharge cycles. Comparable flashlights use non-rechargeable cells with a scant runtime of around 20-minutes.

    Does this mean you can also drop in non rechargeables in a shtf type event?

    No battery carriers to deal with, you just drop two batteries down the tube as with a traditional flashlight.

    And like all Black Bear Flashlights, it’s rechargeable

    The Borealis is made from the "host" of a very well known flashlight in 3D format, 12 1/2 inches long. The advantage of
    the host system is that after the flashlight becomes dented and scratched from heavy field use, you can buy a new "host" at Home Depot, Wal-Mart, or similar retailers for less than $20.00. And ten minutes of your time will replace the special parts in the new shell.

    Unlike other rechargeable police flashlights, the Borealis works on a 12-volt system of high current NiMH batteries, which are needed to handle the almost three and a half amps demanded from the bulb. To cope with the increased heat, the switch has been highly modified and has an aluminum bay with a ceramic bi-pin bulb holder. The special high-walled parabolic aluminum reflector and the Pyrex lens finish the high-temperature system.
    I am a new owner of a BOREALIS and let me tell you folk's, it is an amazing light and will impress people you never thought you could, like "kid's". Mine were like WOW, now THAT is a flash light. They are used to me testing my new light's on them or waking them up with one. They are used to little 60 and 120 lumen light's I have.

    They are over it with just about any light I have until I got the BAD BOY in the mail and I woke them up with those 1050 lumen's.

    The original Borealis batteries were 1800 mah. They are now using 2700’s and giving them two “forming charges” and matching them for capacity before they are allowed inside the flashlight. The new run time (after a few charges-discharges) will be in the 50 minute range for a 1050 lumen light.

    Which by the way is AMAZING!!!

    I really like the idea that the buyer can change the host unit if/when desired/needed without losing the investment in the BB flashlight.

    Impressive Site...

    Post...

    The Borealis Model Three with the Rolls Royce battery carrier. This battery carrier holds all 9 cells as a single unit. The

    internal resistance of the carrier is the lowest of all our carriers (low is good!). The output of the Model Three is a retina

    searing 1050 lumens!. This carrier is perfect for use the our RC Fast Charger. In fact, the cells remain in the carrier

    even during charging. This battery carrier uses a built in charging port for convenient plug-in operation. The Ultimate!


    Thanks for the info...

    Great website and awesome products, Juan! And although I would rather not participate in the giveaway, so one of our members has the best chance to win, I may have to have one of those someday....
