Just thought i'd share with anyone interested a camping lamp i've been using that has been excellent. I'd posted a request on here for recommendations and eventually got a lamp from ABR Sidewinder up in Queensland.
Anyone, long story short is that it's topped any of the lamps i've had before, so much so that i ended up writing to Derek at Sidewinder to thank him. It's rugged, has great illumination, easy to use and a good battery life.
It'll charge either in car or from the mains with it's handy stand and has a great magnet to stick it onto all things metal or a hanging hook for anything else. It's got a great rubberised body and on the lower setting (which more than adequately lights up our campsite every night) it'll run for 4 hours easily.
We've been on the road now for 9 weeks and it's been a great workhorse, used every night and charged every day, dropped, kicked, knocked into icy water and it's still as good as every.
Enough said, just thought i'd share this as the site has been so helpful to me finding this light that i thought i'd repay the favour. Retails for $50.

Hmmm sounds like the go for the boat, an all round anchor light, and a water proof fishing light that won't drain me battery.

You will fall foul in qld using it as an all-round. They're quite picky about it. There was a blitz at the Brissy river mouth last year and many 'factory fitted' vessels failed to comply as well.

Nice to get good feedback isn't it Derrick.

You and everyone else hears about the stuffups but seldom the good outcomes.

Well done Matt.

Cheers, Bruce
