Sometimes a handy little trick can make the difference in getting a job done the quick and easy way. Here are seven fishing hacks that will make you wonder how you didn’t think of these before. Get Rid Of Fish Odour From Skin – It can seem like there is no amount of soap that will get rid of that fishy smell that builds up on your hands after a day of handling fish, or worse, after cleaning your catch. While you need to use soap and water to get rid of grime and germs, running your wet hands over stainless steel will miraculously remove many odours from your skin. Whether you use a piece of cutlery, the faucet, the kitchen sink, or a steel bowl, a chemical reaction occurs and removes the odour causing molecules from your skin. Prevent Rod Ends From Sticking Together – Many fishing rods come apart in two or three pieces for easier transport and storage. The ends of the rods...more

Nighthawk Green LED Flashlight

he Nighthawk UltraLight – GREEN: Ok, so you want to know why we produce an UltraLight with Green Light? A green LED light was one of the first in the spectrum to be used for natural night vision. It helps preserve night vision while allowing for some illumination. Hunters and fishermen etc. prefer the green light because it is less likely to spook the fish or game. It also does not attract insects the way a white light does. Green light is also used by the military and outdoor enthusiasts for electronic night vision equipment, which is less sensitive to green light. However a green light can still have a bad effect on your natural night adapted vision, just like any other color of light unless it is kept very dim. The military likes it for their night operations because, unless viewed straight on, it is difficult to pick up with the human eye. Green is also useful in smoke-filled env...more

Understanding Solar Power for Beginners

A Brief History: The history of Solar power (photovoltaics or simply “PV”) dates back to 1839 when the first photovoltaic effect was discovered by Alexandre Becquerel, a 19-year old French experimental physicist. The discovery came as a surprise when Becquerel found a rise in the conductance of metal electrodes under illumination. Little had happened on the solar power development front until 1954 when Bell Labs announced the invention of the first modern silicon solar cell with an efficiency index of 6%. However, the high cost of solar photovoltaic electricity was made it impossible to be sustained commercially. In 1957 it cost 1,785$ for 1 watt of photovoltaic energy. So the use was limited to laboratory experiments and space engineering only. The first solar-powered satellite was Vanguard I which ran for eight years. So How does it work? The process begins when sunlight is...more
