Very tight beam – 52.8mm*41.5mm Aluminum Reflector with Copper Base for SSC P7 LED Emitters Reviews

posted by Packhorse on 07/03/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
This reflector offers an extreamly tight beam. Better than a 8deg MR16 or 6deg 10w HID when used with a P7 LED.
The copper base can be unscrewed and you can mount a bare emitter to it.
The base and reflector then act as a heatsink though I think you will also need more heat sinking.
Cons:
To get it to mount in a mag head flush you need to grind/machine down the lip. It took me 30 minutes with a dremel and sandpaper.
Be carefull that it does not get too hot as it seems to be coated and this may blemmish.
This then allowed me to use 2 x 1.8mm glass lenes.
Short range it does give a slight donut effect but its not a problem
Other:
Bottomline:
Very very good choice for a mag dive light conversion.
Im happy.
