  • It's bright

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Holy god, this is bright. You seriously cannot look at it at all. I've already blown a power supply on this thing and it handles being overdriven for a few seconds well.

    Make sure you get a heatsink mounted to the back plate if you want to run it for more than a second or two. I'm possibly going to use a copper heatsink/fan and drill out some mounting screws.

    I'm overdriving this with 45v for a fraction of a second to use as an LED flash. It's bright.

    Cons:

    Will melt your face. (may be a pro?)

    It will burn you if you handle it for long without proper cooling attached.

    OtherThoughts:

    The tabs on the side are appropriate for connecting the power. It's not super obvious when you get it.

    Do not be looking in the general direction of this thing when you turn it on. It is brighter than the sun.

    I have no idea how long this thing will last, but I've been hitting it w/ 150W / 45v for a few seconds at a time to get more power out of it and so far I haven't had one die.

    Bottomline:

    Super happy with this light.
