About Parametrek

What's this all about?

Well, I run a website called It started years ago when I had put together a spreadsheet of flashlights for the purpose of finding the perfect gift for my father. That spreadsheet eventually grew and became a website which has helped tens of thousands of people. Shopping for kit without a solid database is not fun, and so I've been slowly branching into more types of gear as I've needed them.

But if you are visiting here you've probably already used my site and are interested in helping out. There are 3 main ways of contributing:

  •  Finding and reporting errors. I'm only human and can only transcribe so accurately. Typos happen. And even if I'm perfect sometimes the manufacturers provide erroneous information. In either case posting a correction at the subreddit is highly appreciated.
  •  Helping other people. When you see someone asking a question that could be answered with a simple query, you can plug their query into the site. Share the URL and they'll see the set of results you've generated.
  •  If you still want to do more, that is where this patreon comes in. Your contribution means I can devote that much less time to dayjob related things and more time typing up specs.

What do you get for providing support?

Thanks to you the databases will be bigger, better, more up-to-date and everyone will get to enjoy that. I'll probably ask for your input when deciding how to further grow and expand the website too. Maybe there will be some extra giveaways over at  /r/flashlight. But there won't be any swag or exclusive content.  Just my gratitude.
