Thread: Mini-HID's

  1. #1

    Default Mini-HID's

    The Third Run has started!! Deposits are now being accepted.

    The original thread can be found here.

    http://http://www.candlepowerforums....ad.php?t=98946


    The Second run here.

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...d.php?t=100345


    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Prices is $240 + Shipping $4 us / overseas upon quote (Please add 3% if payed via Paypal)

    Mini-HID Includes

    -Stock 2d Cut down 3", re-threaded and bored to house the Welch Allyn 10watt Solarc Ballast and Lamp.

    -Tailswitch with positive feel 3amp rated switch. (Mini-HID only draws 1amp)

    -4 x CR123 2x2 configuration Modamag battery holder (Qty 1). 3 RCR123's plus 1 dummy cell could be used also.

    -Ballast is not potted therefore if ever needed it can be removed and placed into another host.

    -Modified stock relector.

    -I will not be offering the Aluminum reflectors in this run as there getting harder to find. The Stock reflector performs great. You can always upgrade later it's simple as uncrewing the bezel and poping in the new reflector.

    -I will need a $100 deposit for each light.

    Options

    -UCL $7
    -Grooved Head (With stock Anodize intact) $25
    -Grooved Head all Bare $35

    Who says size matters????

    I received My MiniHID today and all I can say is, Hot Damn!

    This little booger is awesome!! It out-throws every single light I own, except for the 15 pound Costco HID, but it fits in my pocket!! (I own alot of expensive lights)

    The finned head is actually useful, i find it adds to the grip when held by the head. This will definatley not be my last MiniHID. For the sheer brightness this thing puts out, the runtime on it is realy mind boggling to me!!

    If your on the fence, trust me, its worth it if your a raving flashaholic, simply a must own.

    Free !!!!!
    I may not be that bright, but my lights are!

    Wow, looks like from earlier plots an hour plus is what this light is capable of. PoliceScannerMan, are you able to get this amount of runtime?

    Default Re: Mini-HID's

    The runtime plot showed 1:20 of usable light.

    I don't accept credit cards directly, only via Paypal.


    All lights in this batch will ship Wednesday morning. I have 80% of them completed but the snow storm today killed the shipping plans for tomorrow

    Two quick questions, Mac.

    1) Can you confirm receipt of my paypal for one light?

    2) Was I lucky enough to make it into this batch?


    You can't tell I'm impatient or anything...I guess I'm just really looking forward to this one...don't have a HID yet, and I think I'm going to love this light.

    Yes your light is completed! You stole *My* Ballast and Lamp for my light!! I've made about 25 of these things and can never keep one for myself!

    All lights are completed

    Now you got me feeling guilty twice-over.

    The original guilt of buying another cool light that I don't really need (and will have to 'sell' to the wife) and double-guilt for stealing your light.



    Don' t worry tho'...'cause I deal with guilt really, really well.



    Thanks again, Mac.

    I got the impression from reading the thread that all the lights were spoken for. Are any still available? If so, I'd really like to order one!
