Hi, and thank you for the picture randyo, and I have to agree!
MillerMods, please set my up for a complete ARC Head and Body with the same spesification as mention before, Thanks!
thanks! that sounds good.Originally Posted by MillerMods
btw, have you tried the cree uv led in the arc aaa?
I haven't checked in on this thread for quite a while--what's the word on the Q3s?
Still haven't seen the Q2's which means the Q3's are probably a ways off yet. I hope we see the Q2's before the end of this quarter.Originally Posted by Trashman
Ah well, the anticipation is at least half the fun. Um, can someone refresh my memory on how all these grades compare to each other? The first post in this thread has a good comparison of P3 vs. Q3, but now we've got P4 and Q2 in the mix as well. Are Q3s significantly mo' better than Q2s? I can't tell the players without a scorecard!Originally Posted by MillerMods
With a P3 bin the output estimates go as follows depending on Vf and other factors:
3/4 watt ~45-60 lumens
1 watt ~60-75 lumens
1.25 watt ~75-85 lumens
1.5 watt ~85-95 lumens
With the Q3 bin the output estimates go as follows depending on Vf and other factors:
3/4 watt ~65-80 lumens
1 watt ~80-95 lumens
1.25 watt ~95-105 lumens
1.5 watt ~105-115 lumens
heres the raw lumen @350mA from cree datasheet:
as you can see they are very closely binned compared to luxeonIII
Hi there, sign me up for a 2 stage, Q3, Hi (1.5w), Low (75mA), head + body with international shipping, if its not too late, thanks!
I hate being a PITA. I guess I should post the latest changes to my order.Originally Posted by UncleFester
25mA, 1.5W, P4 WH. I'd love to wait for a Q bin but I'm frothing at the mouth to see this little gem. Maybe I'll get a Q bin later when they come available.
Ask not what Flashoholics can do for you, but what can you do for Flashoholics
I don't blame you one bit UncleFester, I was frothing at the mouth too! I would have loved to wait for the Q bin LEDs, but I've found my little light (with a P4) to be perfect just the way it is...... and it WAS worth waiting for. What a fine beam (smooth), and the ARC AAA body is easily as nice as everybody said it is.
I've found this little light to be a fine combination of simple, but elegant craftsmanship blended with cutting edge LED technology into a tiny package just a bit smaller than my little finger. Amazing!
This cute little gem has earned a permanent place on my keyring.
Ok, I'm in for sooner too. Please change my order from Q3 to a P4. Complete light. I'm .25 low 1.25 high.
If we opt for a P4 how long until we could get a light? (est)
If anyone opt's to change to a P4, they will get their light much faster. I currently have the following tints in P4's: WB, WD, and WH in order from coolest to warmest.
The estimate for time of delivery right now if you changed your order would put you somewhere between the end of this month and the middle of April.
I've always had the P3 on order, should I change to the P4? Would that make a diffrerence in timing or price? Is P4 now your default bin?
I do not know we can ask for a specific tint. Can you provide me with a WD if possible. Mynext preference is WC (I believe you got some of those in P3.)Originally Posted by MillerMods
I do not have paypal. Can you notify me as early as possible so there is minimum delay as a money order is sent and cashed. Also will need your snail mail address.

I would like to change my order.
I will still provide the emitter (a p4 WH) but I would like you to provide the arc.
P4 is now the default bin. I don't have any P3's and I won't be buying more.Originally Posted by Scottiver
I have plenty of P4 WD's. I'll let you know ASAP.Originally Posted by LEDninja
Done.Originally Posted by bwm
Man this light is great! Almost everyone who sees me using it wants to hold it. Some of them try to be critical :
- "Right, it has to work on a special and expensive cell"
- "Nope, just a regular rechargeable AAA cell"
- "Then the LED must be incredibly overdriven so the lifetime is only a few hours"
- "Nope, it is well withing specs and heatsinked"
- "Then it probably has a battery life of only some seconds"
- "Nope, half an hour on high and more than 4 hours on low"
- "All right, this little flashlight really IS incredible"
- "Sure it is "
Thanks to MillerMods! And good luck for building all the orders
EDIT : happy posting to me, this is my 1000th post on CPF
Thanks Erasmus I plan on ramping up my production a good bit here in the next week. I've been remodeling my house for awhile now off and on again. Time to switch gears again!Originally Posted by Erasmus
I'd like to switch to the WD P4 for now, other specs remain the same. I'll buy another with a Q3 when you have those in stock. Thanks!
OK, make both of mine P4's which you were going to do anyway. I've never heard of the tints your offering but my favorite in a LuxIII is a WO bin so if any of yours are similar to that then that's what I would like. Thanks.Originally Posted by MillerMods
This is a break-down of the way I see it for tint comparisons to Luxeon's:Originally Posted by Scottiver
WB ~ YO
WC ~ XO
WD ~ WO
WG ~ X1
WH ~ V1 (but the WH tend to be very white when driven at currents higher than 500mA, although that doesn't apply to my AAA mods)

Did you get this order change for me?Originally Posted by CodeOfLight
Alright I'll switch to a P4 bin, and change to 50/1.25.
