Ray-O-Vac Industrial Grade Flashlight mini review and simple modification.

Budget lights: RAY-O-VAC Industrial Grade LED Flashlights. Aluminum titanium bodies, heavy shock absorbing rubber shrouds on the head and tail. The larger, 3C battery 140 lumen, 2 mode version was purchased at Home Depot iin Arizona, USA. The light is OK, (for a budget light) stock, quite a tight thrower, but not up to flashaholic lumen standards. Immediately after purchase a quick disassembly was in order. Head, emitter and reflector were all glued, but with a flexible rubber cement type glue that was possible to break. The the emitter, heat sink, and reflectors were pulled first. Next a standard (P-60 sized) SST-50 drop was wrapped in with several turns of copper foil and pressed (threaded) it into the head. Reassembed, and Voila! A multi purpose, heavy duty, budget flashlight with a mega-bright high and a useful low. Mod took 15 minutes. There are plans to replace the stock emitter with an SST-90 and re-install with the original aluminum heat sink. Easy, fun mod, these bodies come in 2 x AA and 3 x C battery configurations, and they are built like tanks. Specs from the package: 9 meter /30 foot drop test, 140 lumens,38 hours runtime (on high!) with 138m ~(a football field and a half) throw. On low these tanks put out 45 lumens for a whopping 85 hours at 85 meters of throw. They come with three "C" Ray-O-Vac batteries, which were immediately replaced. The light has a "Lifetime Warrantee" and Home Depot USA is good about returns. $24 for the 2 x C, $15 for the 2 x AA.

Nice mod, lightknot! AFAIK this flashlight line is marketed under Varta brand in Europe and there are few positive reviews on them on flashlight-related sites, and although they're not top-notch lights they seem well worth the money. I wish Indestructibles were imported in my country, 2xAA model is surely on my list.

Cheers

edit: I've found out that Industrials a.k.a. Indestructibles are imported and retailed here by a Hungary-based petrol station chain "MOL" but the price is outrageously high, plus they don't seem to have 2xAA in stock. No luck this time...
