I just learned they went out of business. Bummer, they made great LED lights the AAA, AA, and LS are great and were made in the USA to. Anyone know what the heck happened? Was it the lawsuit by Mag-light or was the ARC4 just a huge flop?

Peter Gransee has an ARC forum over and www.candlepowerforums.com. He lists his reasons for shutting down over there.

It's a real mess and a shame what happened to Arc. If you want to find out far more than you need to know then the CPF Underground is the place to waste some your time on this...

(Just my humble opinion)

I did a search and was unable to find that thread. Do you have a link by any chance?

If you join CFPunderground, you can read all about it.

I tell you, those people are even bigger geeks than internet gunnuts.

Pretty sordid tale.

Too bad about the company- I love my Arc-AAA. Glad I bought *several* when I had a chance.

Yep, the word loser comes to mind.

Peter was into people for several thouand dollars and continued to accept money when the ship was sinking. Last I heard he was going to face fraud charges.

What killed me was that insane Marijane Stinebaugh lady- she stole $29,000 from the guy while working for him, and then all but bragged about it on the forum, saying "yep, I'm fucked him". What a class act.

WTF???

Cool little flashlights, though...
