EDIT-WITHDRAWN FOR THE MOMENT-GOING TO EVALUATE SOMETHING!
ROP, Roar of the Pelican flashlight is for sale. I want to sell the ROP for $122, U.S.D. It is in brand new condition, Aluminum Silver Color 2D Maglite that is modified.
Buyer pays shipping, USPS and mailing insurance. Shipping on receipt of payment, PayPal or certified check or money order. I will honor the first “I’ll take it” without conditions posted in the thread. This is a private sale, consider the light used, no warranty or guarantee offered or implied. I check CPF in the morning, Mountain Standard Time, UTC/GMT -7 hours. Private Message the specific details please.
It has these features:
1. fivemega dual function removable cam SMO reflector
2. Borofloat window
3. One HIGH BULB & Two LOW BULBS, frosted HIGH and One LOW
5. Two Aventrade 4 AA to D, parallel battery holders
6. Eight UltraFire 3.6 Volt AA 900 mAh Lithium Batteries, rated 7.2 volts at 3.6 Ah, however voltage holds at 8.4 V off the charger during use for a time. That is higher than typical the NiCd and NiMh solutions.
7. One 2D battery holder and adapter to use with a lithium cr123, 3.6 volt charger
8. Maglite, silver color, 2D flashlight
9. 5 amp fuse in tail cap.
These things were done:
1.The maglite switch was modified using AWR’s instructions to reduce internal resistance.
2. The spring terminals are grounded with copper wire jumpers. I have measured 0.9 circuit resistance through the light now.
3. The battery holder allows 1 to 4 cells in parallel. The positive terminals had to be built up to accept the Lithium AAs.
4. I like to frost the sides of the bulb to remove artifact shadows, not the top. One of Two LOW Bulbs is not frosted but I can frost it if you want.
5. The batteries were charged once by an UltraFire 3.6 lithium smart charger and have not been discharge except for a few minutes or run.
6. 5 amp fuse in tail cap, automotive mini-blade. Low draws 2 amps High draws amps, this should protect from cirtcut failures and stupid stunts.
I like some mod projects just for the pleasure of making them up. Time to move on, I have no use for the light or these new parts. I had it completed and compared the beam to a couple of existing lights. The LOW BULB is very bright, about that of a MagCharger with an 1160. The HIGH BULB, well, check out CPF, many reports and they are true! So this project is new but deadlined. Each battery pack of 4 is the size of a D cell, by using the battery box and adapter I charged the pack using my UltraFire 3.6 volt lithium charger but the DSD will also work.
You all are killing me, I did a run time- 40 minutes, HIGH BULB, and then it dimmed to yellow. Wow, did I hit it on the head, that is 2.95 Ah for 4 parallel or 738 mAh each, not 900 mAh and that is just what AWR said it would be!!
So the light is running to begin with at 8.4 Volts, using 4.43 Amperes, bulb is running at 37 Watts.
