    Rolleye11 Multi-level LuxV FlexMag1.5D



    Fivemega’s tri-bored 1.5D Mag, UCL lens, LuxV WW0S emitter, O-sink, blue glow ring, nFlex driver housed in custom made holder, switch modified to momentary pushbutton switch (off-on), running on 3x 17670 batteries.

    This light is constant current regulated and has 5 output levels (this nFlex driver has the new flashlight optimized user interface). Max output current is set to 1000mA and the driver isn’t potted.

    Lumens output: 147.7 – 192.0 Lumens.
    Lux reading at 1m using Meterman LM631: 209 – 1567 – 2870 – 4530 – 7300 Lux.

    Runtime on high using 3x 17670 (1600mAh) batteries (AW) was 2 hours 40 minutes!

    You can read more about the nFlex driver here.

    Thanks for looking.

    Icarus,

    2 hours and 40 min on high for a lux V at 7300? That's impressive!
    As always, the mod is an eye-pleaser.

    Yep, impressive runtime on high!
    Did I mentioned I kept this guy's head cool using a fan?

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    Icarus, I can't tell which I like better, your new creation or your stellar photography. I can't get over how each time you post a new light, you meticulously 'pose' each component for maximum visual effect. The clarity in the lens of the flashlight is remarkable.

    Do you line up all you shoes with a tee square?
    If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

    Hello Freddy

    Great light. Fantastic runtime.

    I also like the nice Ertalon batterie holder.

    Very best regards

    Sure is! I'm glad I bumped this to the top so Icarus could get some more recognition on this build!
