MYRIANN Tempered Glass Screen Protector, After 3 Years.

About three years and 2 weeks ago I got a tempered glass screen protector for my then new Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. A cheap one.

Its great! Clear and touch sensitive, can’t tell any diference in using the phone. Easy to clean, and so far I have yet to mark, scratch or stain it, and I’ve been on a messy construction/remodelling job site all week.
It was easy to apply, with a glasses cleaning cloth, the included alcohol wipe, and antistatic dust collector cloth… peel the back, press it in place, and press the center, and the adheasive magicaly self levels out all the air bubbles… It wasn’t even a one time deal, the adheasive will lift, and allowed me to move it twice to get the best fit, yet its still on there solid if your not trying to move it.
Now, it doesn’t fit Exactly right. Its a touch too big at the top and botton edges, and since my phones screen sits in a recess with a lip around it, the top edge of the protector is held just slightly above the surface of the screen… But its and area like 1/8” wide, but maybe 1/4” long above the speaker… Big deal

The same goes for the 1/8” wide bar that crosses across the bottom below the buttons, for like 1” its off the screen. Again, who cares?
Both spots are only sitting about half way up that lip, and because of the lip itself nothing can get under the protector in those areas, so it doesn’t matter. Otherwise its a perfect fit.
Here is the card that came with it, for the item/brand info if anyone is interested. This was like $6 shipped.

And amazingly it’s lasted all thee years. Mostly;

My phones screen by comparison is immaculate! Not a mark or speck on it!

I’d say that cheap $6 screen protector definitely did it’s job, and I more than got the good from it, and beyond the investment!

Single Cell CR123 Flashlights

Put this together last week for a thread at EDCC about single cell CR123 lights, just realized I should put it here too. 🙂 

My most used(also oldest) and favorite of my three single cr123 lights, has to be my Jetbeam BC10. Simple two modes, (no freaking strobes) perfect for averages spaces on low, and while its a moderately low turbo mode for these days, it’s eye shattering enough for pitch black times. 

This light is just bombproof, and comes back for more!

Next up is the Rofis JR10, with what has to be oneof the coolest light features this decade, the infinite angle head, which I love for hands free lighting. 4 modes from comfortable in small spaces, to eye splitting in almost any space, almost always plenty of light. Love the mode memory, No strobes, and fast easy side switch to change modes. 

It loses a couple points for its length to carry, and weight– both from the longer rotating head. (And maybe the custom brass body 😉 ) But all three of these get carbine red more than pocket clipped anyway, this one being the only one I pocket carry, and it is OK that way.

The third is my custom built Solarforce L2M withthe 1xCell body tube. 3 modes, reverse cycle orderis hard to remember after other lights, h-m-l, but it’s a good range. Once again, love no strobes! This is my extreme cold, big and easy to grip with heavy gloves light, doesn’t get carried many other times, it’s just so Huge for the average day, and forget pocket clip carry! Wider floody beam probablyhelps make up for it, but I never notice…

Also love caribiner carry, with that sith like evilchrome bezel on it, I always feel like I’m packing a lightsaber around!
