    After I finish the current batch, I'm taking a break for a while from building any new hardware.
    But I always enjoy talking lights if you need other recommendations!


    1. Check out the options page to pick your mounting options and batteries.
    2. Check out the pricing page. (Currently accepting Paypal or personal check).
    3. Then drop me an email at [email protected] and let me know which lights you need.

    *Builds 1 and 2 were permanently sealed. However, with the introduction of the user-replaceable lens design in build 3, I felt the need to change the spec from "water proof" to "highly water resistant." The lights will ship with a a high degree of "water-proofness," but care must taken to ensure a good seal if the lens cover ever needs to be removed.
