Streamlight Key-Mate vs. Russian optics - tam optics, Russian, Key Mate, Streamlight,
Being idle at home for the past few days due to heavy snowfall, I've decided to soup up my Dad's Key-Mate, which I've brought for a repair - little bugger flickered due to poor contact and its acrylic replacement lens was broken. Of course my Old Man didn't have the faintest idea what I've been up to with his favourite keychain light.

First I've swapped the stock LED (probably Nichia) with a 25.000mcd LuckyLight 5mm LED - the type I've already used successfully in my 9V flashlight project and MagLite Solitaire LED mod. Swap was a piece of cake, since the lens was to be removed anyway. Soldering iron completed the job in minutes. This also solved a flickering problem. Care should be taken not to fry the LED, though.

Having some spare coated lenses from a Russian-made LOMO camera lying around (Smena-8 IIRC), I've found a planconvex one (with a brass ring), which produced a discinctive Lenser-like spot with my new LL LED. Convex side of the lens is facing outwards (it's obvious that I've forgotten to blow out...

Review Streamlight PolyTac C4 LED

border=0
My everyday carry tactical flashlight is the Streamlight PolyTac C4 LED. The PolyTac comes in either the C4 LED or Xenon bulb. Comparing the C4 LED to the Xenon, 120 lumens vs 72 lumens, 3 hour runtime vs 1 1/3 hour runtime, 40,000 hour bulb vs 30 hour bulb, it's clear the C4 LED is the winner. The PolyTac's competition is Surefire's G2 LED. The G2 has been updated with an aluminum bezel and it's maximum brightness is now equal to the PolyTac, 120 lumens.
