Make a $200 "tactical" flashlight for about $15
The "LumiTact G700" is a scam. It's really an Alonefire E17c G700, a 6-dollar Chinese flashlight. The LED inside is the few-years old Cree XM-L T6 (and some people even reported receiving a fake of that LED, called the Lattice Bright XML-T6).If you want a similar, but better quality zooming light, get the Brinyte B158 for about $30. If you don't need the zoom function, but want longer throw, buy one of the Convoy lights. Both of these come with the newer XM-L2 U3 or U4 LED, which is somewhat brighter, and far more efficient.Keep in mind that the Brinyte doesn't come with a 3xAAA adapter, and thus can only be used with an 18650-type battery (not sure about the Convoy). Even if you end up buying a light with the 3xAAA holder, it's better to run it from an 18650, as only then will you get the full brightness. Brinyte makes a special 18650 with a built-in Micro-USB port, which can be charged using your phone's charger. Alternatively, you can get 18650s from old laptop batteries, in which case you'll need an external Li-ion charger.
I used clear Rustoleum after the fine sanding. That truly is the secret. Well done.

I hate to break it to you, rain cloud, but you're trying to rain on a NINE YEARS OLD Instrucable. But hey... be sure to stop by some vintage articles about the invention of color TV to tell them you hate to break it to them about 4K resolution.
To be honest you are genius. Simple life hack can change your life but simple gadget hack can reduce your cost...:p
Hate to break it to you but you can get an LED tactical flashlight easily 5-10x as bright on ebay for $8-15, or a headlight if you prefer. And the batteries (if not getting cheap ones) will last a lot longer for brigher than this, plus they would be rechargeable.
