    Another use for a good bike light

    I'm in Belize mentoring a dental volunteer mission. My Bentblaster is the envy of the other docs.
    (Easy2LED with XML-2 on copper and l-flex- just running it on medium power)

    We're working all day without dental lights.


    From Belize 2013

    I hope they're wearing good sunglasses! Plus if the lights go out at night you're golden

    At least it looks like you have power for the drill. Would be a bummer using a hand drill!!

    How come no dental lamps? Looks like there is power as there are fans in the background. How are recharging? Solar?

    got another question for you

    I have wanted to bring my lights and batteries with me on some of my business travels but have always been afraid of getting them confiscated, and that was just travelling within the States. Did you carry on or pack them in checked luggage? Did you get questioned at all? Just curious.

    No problem for carry-on. They didn't even ask.
    I had 3 lights and a whack of batteries too.

    We have electricity, suction, compressors, air/water abrasion, high speed drills, medical ozone- just no running water in the empty church we converted. I guess they just don't have portable dental lights- we had to fly everything in duffle bags, including thousands of $ worth of dental supplies I left with the local doc who has very little.
    They did have crappy halogen headlamps - useless. I'll see if I can send down some of the Fandyfire lights.

    Yep, I brought good sunglasses. Lights went out for a bit- no biggie.
    Check out the album if you're bored.
