    Thanks Eric!!
    My Arc AAA-P is happy as can be sitting at your house waiting to get Creeated (ok - that's bad).

    Not looking good so far. The focus as many have already discovered is a problem for me. I'm still checking out some things though, so more to come. I ran out of time tonight.

    Thanks for the update, Eric. Food for all us who are waiting I'm sure =)

    If the focus problem equates to too much flood, that is more than fine by me. Perhaps an Ion killer?

    Things are looking up a bit. I'll be making a new bit soon for cutting the new reflector profile needed for the different viewing angle of the X-RE. The trial profile works well for flood, but I think I can do better. The stock Arc reflector angle produces a donut hole.

    As much as donuts are a good thing in the real world, as far as flashaholism is concerned, they're pretty much the damned devil.
    Thanks for plugging away at this Eric! I couldn't be more excited about outfitting my Arc AAA-P with a Cree XR-E!
    Thanks,
    john

    Way to go!

    It will be worth the effort - these things will sell like hot cakes!

    There's nothing more satisfying than showing something the size of
    a solitaire to the "non-enlightened" and then lighting up a room

    Have you performed any "trials" or do you have an educated as to how the CREE will project with the AA sized head? If you need one to practice on, let me know and I'll send you one of my extras.

    That'll be a different challenge all together. In fact, knowing what I've observed, it won't be possible with the AA version. That's because there isn't enough depth to work with to get the angle right for the reflector. It takes a very steep reflector to get these Cree to focus which is great for using very small reflector diameter.

    There's more work that has to be done to these because of the Cree needing modified to fit and the longer amount of time to cut the reflector as deep as it needs to be, so unfortunately I have to raise the price a bit to $120 with 2 stages and $110 with one stage for a complete head and body. The head by itself will be $15 less. Prices for more premium Cree's will have to be sorted out later. It's worth the extra money though, this light is so bright.

    Let the list begin...

    I'll let everyone know via PM or e-mail when to pay. There will have to be a lead time of about 4 weeks for these. Some may go out sooner for first impressions.

    Thank you, to all of my supporters. Sometimes it's a tough game around here.

    Eric-

    I think you already knew I was in for one, since you have my Arc AAA-P, but to make if official, here I am!

    it will also be a2-stage 1.25W but with a 50 ohm low.

    i'll paypal for both.
    The low modes are 25mA, 50mA, and 75mA. mA = milliAmps. I spec the power on high with power out (watts) because Vf can vary a bit and my driver isn't a constant current driver so the drive current to the Cree can be slightly different depending on the Vf.

    Here are some approximations for the Cree X-RE and my driver:

    3/4 watt = ~240mA drive
    1 watt = ~320mA drive
    1.25 watt = ~390mA drive
    1.5 watt = ~480mA drive

    Not yet, but hopefully in the near future. I'd like to get at least P3's in various tints.

    I'll confirm my earlier "I'll take it!" Can I send my Arc to you (are you using the new heads?) or should I just order a new head?

    2-stage premium, please!

    50mA/1.25watt premium Cree (I'll send the head to you) $110?

    Only new style heads can be used for this mod. You can ship me your Arc head or order a new one from me for $15.
