    LED lighting is, to me, one of the great technological breakthroughs of our time. They are so much more efficient, converting more power to light rather than heat. Saves time and money in your home when you replace incandescents.

    These lil' lights are the handiest lights for those stormy, scary dark nights. Magnets in the back make them useful. Got a bunch of 'em in my hurricane box.......

    I have a couple of solar chargers for multiple kinds of batteries. I can charge almost anything from large 12V batteries down to AA/AAA, 18650's etc. Here are a couple of good products to have:

    I was given a 12V solar panel that needed a controller. I've been using this excellent low-cost controller. Excellent value:

    Lots of good ideas here...thanks @Misty Lu


    BTW The biggest issue with solar panels and charge controllers is figuring out what you need. My system is redundant, but I have numerous devices to charge, from cell phones to tablets, to IPads, to laptops, to ham radios, to LED lights.

    Yup, those guys take a flashlight fetish to a whole new level!

    Stumbled in there one time after googling "converting older SureFire 6Ps into LEDs". Holy cow! I never realized that a HH flashlight sub-culture existed till then. Those guys are really serious about their lumens....
