I just use a lead light 240V (one that has a 5M lead on it) and convert to 12v. Just cut the plug off, add the alligator clips for positive and negative and then just buy a 11W 12V bulb from a light shop. Total cost under $30. Interesting tho. Be good to have a switch on it to turn it off inside the CT instead of getting up and going outside to the 12V battery and turning it off. Wonder what the wiring is to put a switch in?

Not really able to give you any advice on this matter as we have no idea where you are located...... This is where I have purchased some of mine from. http://www.jaycar.com.au/

I can't tell you specifically where to purchase this particular light but Jaycar are in Ipswich & you could try the camping stores as well.

Maybe you could also look at Repco.

Fenix TK40 640 Lumens AA Flashlight

Postby underthestars » Tue Apr 07, 2009 7:40 pm

I found this on the web and pretty keen to buy, anybody else had any experience with this brand?
640 Lumens sounds a little unachieveable in a AA run flashlight but I don't mind standing corrected if anyone has any advice or experience with this flashlight or brand.

hey guys went camping on the weekend at somerset. Was good but rained occasionally, but overall had a sweet time. Anyway ran into supercheap auto on thursday and found a sweet light that i thought i test out. i got it from supercheap auto for $65. i was really suprised at the quality of the light and the durability of the whole thing. A++. Super duper bright. we had it running of a deep cycle battery, and it lasted friday, saturaday, & sunday night from about 6 - 10 every night, and never failed us once, and went back into the box, with nothing broken and looking new :P

Anyway thought id tell you, and let you have a look.
