    How long have you had your Borealis?

    I got mine today finally!!! I had been waiting and waiting until my money allowed this purchase, and can say without a doubt, IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY! Thanks Juan!

    I cannot believe how much light can come out of this thing. It lights up a room like you turned on a flood lamp. Outdoors it is all daylight! I cannot imagine what a BG would do if you beamed this across his eyes, but I know there is NO way he would see anything for a while.

    This would be an amazing LEO tool.

    I was going to just add a note to the other Borealis thread, but it is closed, so

    How long have you had yours? And is it still as impressive?

    I belive it's a super bright flashlight; post a pick if you can, even one at night with it shining on something!

    +1, I'd like to see some pics, too. I'm not very informed on the super high-end flashlights..I'm more of a maglite person, myself.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    From what I gather, it is a Mag-Lite body with a crazy emitter and fancy battery adapters that let you run a bunch of AA Ni-mH batteries. I think it's bright as hell. I'd like one myself, but think it's out of my flashlight price-range.

    Welcome to Black Bear Flashlights



    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. The Borealis features a 50-minute runtime with our new 2700 mAH batteries.



    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 don't think it's been discussed to death. I just think it costs more money than most of us are willing to pay for a flashlight and therefore most of us cannot provide any comments.
