  • useful casing

    posted by jmsai on 05/07/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Good casing for 2 cr123 / one 18650 projects.
    Compact, Stands on tail, optics can be totally removed.
    Good quality.

    Cons:

    Very cree XRE orientated.
    One had a tail joint which got extended from factory screwing of the cap. Grease and careful remount while holding it in place made it shrink back to functional.

    OtherThoughts:

    Got two, modified one to host a SSC P7, had to rectify the led/driver insert, ad well as the reflector, makes a STUNNINGLY bright little LED, but it does not have a great focus.
    Modified the other one with a Cree XPG-R5 (and another driver) and got sensibly (just a tad under) the same results in total brightness, but with a more focussed beam.
    It is not an obvious task to wed the right led with the right driver in the right casing.

    Bottomline:

    To DIY or not to DIY ?
