O lantern ... (by KardeN)

Hello dear friends
Something I put at the forefront, in recent times, the principle - "less talk - more than listen." Which translated into English means LJ - "less write - more are viewing."
They say that if you follow the conventional wisdom saying one can and go for the smart. Ate more silent.
So that you have not got the wrong impression about my cleverness, I'll try to begin to shift the ratio of "silent - listening," that is "read - write," about the middle of the scale.
Let's talk today about the lights.
Flashlight - this is one of the items that caused probably many, many childhood delight and any adventure fantasy.
And now the torch, despite electrification started by German engineers before 1917 and continued electrification commission in the Soviet era - a necessary accessory, not only in the province, but also in major cities.
Not to mention the places where the lights Ilyich is not in sight, that is, in the nature.
My concept for lamps as follows:
- Lights should be a lot
- They should be in all cases in life
- They should be with him in the car, in backpacks and bags at home and work
- They have to use different batteries
- Spare batteries must be one set of two
- Spare batteries must be with you in the car, in backpacks and bags at home and work
- The cost of the lamp should not punch a dent in your budget
- At least one of the lamps must have a reliable, close to the maximum
And I can assure you that in any situation, at least one light I have.
That does not include the lighting units of Zenith on the machines and gun ...

Some time ago I wanted to buy a flashlight with multiple modes of operation, quality and not too expensive to not be excruciatingly painful in the case of every kind of adventure where a deleterious effect on the body of the lamp.
Forgive me, fans of "Shurik" and "dates", the choice fell on the company LED LENSER ®
and lantern M7 .

The first reason - German lantern.
Second - many modes
Third - the lower price compared to the Surefire and Fenix
Since the issue of the choice of the model has been solved, you can only buy it.
The choice fell on this store
Method of communication with the consultant on Skype store clarified features of each model, the conditions of use, etc, etc.
Since the price bracket for lamp placed me was limited to the price of three thousand rubles, the choice fell on the Lantern Series M7.
The so-called tactical series I, on the advice of a consultant, ignored, as lights in this series were not wealthy in terms of the operation mode of illumination.
Series "M" is devoid of such shortcomings and accordingly I drew attention to this instance
Then I wrote a letter with the name and coordinates of the Model.
Plus added a custom remote button ...

When you use this button, there is only one mode of maximum brightness without fixation.
That is, light can only work when the button is pressed.
All manipulations with the change of regime (called Smart Light Technology) glow made ​​using a button that is pressed in whole or in up to half of its stroke (non-fixed position). Depending on how many times recessed button that turns a particular mode.
Packages Lighting mode:
- Professional. It includes modes - maximum brightness, blink, SOS (auto feed signal using Morse code), strobe
- Power saving. It includes modes - maximum power and smooth change of power from 15 to 100%
- Tactical. It includes modes of maximum brightness and strobe.
You can see it on a video producer
In fact, regime change - the procedure is quite simple.
Next - the lamp housing is coated thumb to tightly hold the flashlight.
The head part of the lamp with respect to the longitudinal displacement of the cover smoothly changes the focus.
As a result, the designers' plans, get a wide beam of light without dark and bright spots, called "effect of theatrical spotlight."
If you move the head part of the way forward, it is formed by a narrow beam.
The system is called the Advanced Focus System.
Its main part - the optical element consisting of a lens, combined with a reflector.
To fix the front section in a given situation to turn the head of the left circle with respect to the cover.

Well, first impressions ...
Flashlight is very good quality.
Switch modes, despite the apparent complexity, very simple.
Average acts as official flashlight.
May be applied as an ersatz underbarrel flashlight. But ...
Because of its non-standard diameter for mounting on a variety of weapons suitable only Barrel clamps as eight. That to me is unacceptable. A bracket for Picatinny rails, such as these are too small diameter.
All filters and protective covers not.
Now, about the lighting ... The same effect theatrical spotlights, which, according to the manufacturer "... the illuminated circle of light and dark no areas that are heavily interfere with the use of conventional light ...", in fact, do have dark areas.
I am not a specialist, as inhabitants Fonarevki .
So I'll give just a few shots taken in automatic mode, so ... random ...
- The distance of two meters ...
As we see, cartoon circle clean failed.
- Mode beam. The distance is the same ...
- The corridor.
A distance of about 30 m ...
- A narrow beam ...
However, the light shines very well, and after checking the defensive mode (strobe), despite the manufacturer's written warnings about the dangers of such an experiment in their eyes, a long time to recover.
As for the cover, I was very saddened by his absence.
Until he came to look pouch FOB-3 from the MTR ...
P1000798 P1000800
Established clip very well kept light.
But does not protect it from damage ...
P1000801 P1000802
And finally - the more batteries - the better J
