Default My New Toy !

I have a trusty Nitecore P36 (2x18650) flashlight that serve me well. Ten Lumen settings from 2 to 2000 that make it very useful.

But I need more power!

The new light, Acebeam K65, was on sale for $120 (was $200) uses 4x18650 batteries. It's a beast!

The light and the batteries came in today.

Turned out to be defective so I filed a return. They said I'll get a refund in a few days but don't return the light.

Some of the functions stopped working and it smelled burnt. I took the batteries out and put it back in the box.

Haven't said much about how the surgery went on here.
I have more pain since the surgery they fused 3 discs. Not sure what happened for sure but i now have Hep A & B. and i have a collapsed lung on my left side. Its lower lobe. I am on Oxygen and all kinds of different meds and shots what a mess of crap!! I'm tired. I don't have any energy I do the water changes with the help from Deb and Robert. I bought one of those Python water change kits that really makes it so easy on me. I have the layout with the trains. I have the fish tank, Movie screen with cable and also internet. This computer is just over a year old. I have shakes in my hands and arms. Have a very difficult time using a mouse. I haven't been on any of my forums much as i am just wiped out. I can drive but with the health issues i can't travel wit the rv anymore. I think i will be saleing my 5th wheel. it needs work done and so does the truck. I am too weak to even do a oil change. This all started after the surgery!! I am wondering about suing that doctor and hospital. Am holding for now to see what else i have. They are drawing Blood enough to almost need a blood transfusion! How is this gonna end? I have no clue. They have Meds to take care of the Hep A and B. I might have to have surgery to re-inflate the lung. If they can i might be able to go off Oxygen. This is going to be a on-going issue. If i get news i will let you all know. Sorry to bring bad news but If i stop coming here it might be for a bit or if i am in the hospital , it could be hard to stay in touch. I have scans of the lung and Blood tests and all kinds of junk!! Will let you know how all this crap works out. Later all

Damn Dan that's awful. Has to be a major screw up from the medical profession.

Did I say medical profession ?? What a joke they are.

I'm not feeling so hot myself. I'm in pains but their hands are tied from giving me enough drugs because of laws.

Might as well face it Dan, they want us to die off.

That's ok. It's my thread and you're welcome to all my threads.

You know, we are baby boomers and a big drain on the system as we age. Soon it'll be over with.

So far I've managed but it could've been better. I'm worried about Dan though.

Woke up this morning feeling like my lungs were being pulled out through my mouth!!! I don't think I can get over this without some major surgery on my lungs! I have oxygen and that helps. I'm sticking around to see what they are gonna do next. I guess I will find out. When I find out I will let you know. Thrills...

Too bad my Acebeam K65 was a bust and I'm still waiting on the refund (due by tomorrow). Anyway, on the CandlePower forum a member posted in my thread what he believed was the bang for the buck.

It's the BLF-Q8 which is the light modded by the nerds at the Budget Light Forum (BLF) and manufactured by Thorfire. Very impressive indeed, capable of 5000 lumen and 70000 candela.

Now he tells me.

It's for $45 at BangGood site (a steal!) but my bank will not allow the deal because it's based in China. Amazon has an upgraded model for $65 so I ordered it there. It'll be here tomorrow.

Gotta love Amazon.
