Pretty much. I was wondering if they got warm enough to accomplish the task. I usually get distracted by something at work, and my coffee gets cold before I finish drinking it.

Been using this product below to strengthen my healing wrist and forearm and get my muscles back to where they should be.

Perhaps too late for Xmas now, but one of the best things I've bought over the last few years, that I use all the time, is a good flashlight. I think every guy should have a good flashlight.

There are a lot of quality brands out there, but I've found Fenix to be an excellent value for the high-quality that you get. There are lots of various sizes... I personally have a TK-15 and TK-22 and I always carry one in my photo bag, on trips, and have one for various uses around the house. These little things are small, but will make your old Maglites feel like a dinky candle. Amazing amount of light from such a tiny package.




I love these things so much I bought a couple of them as Xmas presents for family. They are not as cheap as lot of crappy flashlights you see at stores, but they are built to last. The sharp bezel is also not a bad sleeper self-defense tool.

How is that for strengthening the wrist ligaments?

That little LED on my cell phone is the best GD flashlight I've ever had. I always have it with me, it's bright enough for every application, and I don't have to carry around anything else. I've wondered if cell phone lights will put the small flashlight industry out of business. I doubt anybody under 30 would every buy one as they've grown up with a flashlight on their phone.

The problem with the cell phone flashlight is setting it up so that it aims at something you are looking at.

Mine sure as heck does. I got one in a Secret Santa here at work and it works almost too well. It's not a USB one, plugs into an outlet so it probably has way more jam.

Kept my coffee nice and hot till it got close to the bottom, then it gets insanely hot. Probably a firehazard too as I don't think it has an auto off feature. Kinda nervous to use it frequently tbh....I'd hate to be "that guy" that burnt down the office.

Perhaps. But it's not like little flashlights come with tripods, either.

The little flashlight on my iPhone is a great feature, and I use it a ton. However, these Fenix lights are on a totally different planet when it comes to power and coverage. It's like comparing photos taken on a cell phone vs a professional SLR. It's a great tool.

No ability to put on red filter for tactical ops.

Would not bang

Read the whole interchange after Fotze-ification and it is humorous.

Would also be the most downloaded app ever. Would probably need an external attachment though.

You mean like this? I got a couple of these at Bianca Amor's for a few bucks each.

Ta-da!

edit: beaten but mine is cooler. I actually have a Joby flashlight similar to this, but it has a rechargeable battery. Very awesome.
