Re: Dirty water Midhandle build

Hey Mana, is that the bottom half of a cast iron chiminea from "Blue Rooster", without the chimney attached? I have a cast aluminum one from them. You ever cook any fish on it? Is good for steaming...

Re: Daily Vis report thread

I went out Tue & Thur the 11th & 13th, and the bottom vis on the wrecks dropped off to under 10 feet. the seas were 3 foot both days though. When does your week start?

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

Cuzza, the 16650 cells fit like a charm, and operate well. Still testing for duration. Am using the Orbtronic cells (2600 mAh). I ended up getting some mini Olight single-cell lights (non-diving)...

Re: Dive Buddies for Dutch Springs

That water there is really clear, due to the millions of zebra mussels. Fun stuff to play on too. Made many a trip there (2 hours each way) for several years starting in 2002. I used to start the...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

Here's some interesting trivia about small rechargeables.... The all electric Tesla cars use battery packs comprised of several thousand 18650 cells! These are about the highest watt-density...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

The "technical section" on the Xtar site had a good primer on batteries, capacities, charging, etc. Worth a look for sure. Yes, the dragon particularly caught my eye too. What a sexy looking piece of...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

That 3-display model is like their original VC2. Seems the 4-bay model has capability to go between 0.1 to 1.0 amps. but manual says "automatically selects" current. I like to "manually select...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

Cuzza, I also ordered a pair of Orbtronic's 16650's (2500mAh), and their "Xtar VC2 Plus" charger couple nights ago. Upon closer look at manual, reviews, features and video's, it seems the earlier VC2...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

I'm glad they worked out. I see too many people trying to cram an 18mm diameter 18650 cell into a light designed for 17mm diameter CR123's. At 2500 mAh, you should get plenty of performance, although...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

I'm in the market for a dedicated cell charger myself for these Li-Ion cells. For years I've used this one from Multiplex, but it only has alligator clips, and runs on as low as 10-volts DC, but...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

Terrific! I assume you already have a charger for your existing 18650's you plan to use? Which make and model charger is it?

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

CuzzA, follow the link below to "Orbtronic". The Link is to their "16650 battery & charger" page. This is the route I am going. $7.75 for each 16650 cell @ 2500 mAh! A standard CR123A cell is 1550...

Re: Mako 680 Lumen light questions

JFJF, follow the link below to the post I made to someone who was also trying to fit the 18650 batteries in place of CR123's. The 123's are 17mm diameter, while the 18 650's are 18mm diameter (by...

Re: Solid Light Solution for Ocean Rhino Guns..

Cuzza, Did you ever get the 18650 rechargeables to fit by removing the heat shrink jacket? I assume this is what you meant by "label".

I wanted to mention the 16650 rechargeable. It is "16mm"...

Re: wetsuit for Jersey

I would be surprised if they shrink, but compress, yes. I haven't used Yamamoto products long enough to know. However, the Yamamoto supposedly has 30% more air bubbles than standard neoprene does. As...

Re: wetsuit for Jersey

You will love the Mako suit! I keep 4 of them... two 3mm's in L & XL, and two 5mm's in L & XL.

Am equally comfortable in size large, just a little easier to don & doff with the XL size. Both...

Re: wetsuit for Jersey

I dove in Jersey today. Switched from the super warm Mako 5mm to the Mako 3mm today. 66F on surface, felt like mid to high 50s at 48 feet on the bottom. Felt fine in the 3mm. Think it will be my go...

Re: Mako 680 Lumen light questions

Armd1, Thanks for the tips. From what I've seen of the rechargeables, the have less mAh capacity over the disposables. I'll have to compare the specs again. And yes, the light takes 2 cells end to...

Mako 680 Lumen light questions

I've managed to shy away from any light that uses CR123A batteries, as they are not as common, and not as cheap as AA or AAA. But recently I found myself passing up too many high performance and...

Re: Mako Wetsuit Size, Thickness and Fit Question

I agree with Burnz, get the XL. I ordered their suits in 3 sizes before learning that. The Mako suits are great. I'm 5'-10.5" and 180, and although I started this season out in a 5mm Large, and it...
