    Crazy It's all gone XR-E



    A bit of show & tell.
    I only got the Spy 005 today, What A stunning bit of engineering to Data.
    3-4 hours later It got the XR-E Transplant. I can't leave it alone
    The Orb was done for a customer. Big improvement. Not Something I am offering.

    I am not really ready to be able to offer in any sort of Qty any of the above, It is still work in progress.
    Feel free to use the Thread for questions about the Raw Series with the XR-E.
    As components become available I.e the XR-E & Refs to be ordered. I will be able to offer the Raw Series with the XR-E LED.
    Time frame is looking like 2-3 weeks.
    Costs to begin with are an extra £20 on top of what ever is ordered.
    As for drop in parts for existing NS/Ti or Raw owners it could be done, but may only be economical for the higher cost lights like the Ti.(Drop in XR-E assembly to be decided)
    There will be a new batch of Alu Raws Designed around the XR-E & the appropriate Mc Reflector.
    In the mean time I have a huge amount of back orders to clear (Due to Nano charger Shortages)
    Designs to finalize.
    Any body waiting for there order wishing to have the XR-E in there NS/Ti/DA may do so at the £20 extra cost & possible 3 weeks extra wait.

    To attempt to keep things semi organised, please if you have a order paid for & you want to spend the extra £20 on the XR-E. Just Send the £20 PP to Info@theorb.co.uk & I will match with your current order.

    New orders for NS/Ti can be taken but please anticipate the 3-4 week wait.

    So much for the show & tell

    David. Hats of to you for the design & manufacture of this truly unique light.
    I am turning down McR 19mm Refs as they leave a larger dia front end & still work Dam well. The 17 is the one in the blue headed Ti.

    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.

    I am definitely interested in a upgrade drop in. As for a run of TI xr-e NS's I may also have interest in picking one up.

    Rob,

    What bin do you expect to be able to get for the XR-E? Any beamshots or graphs showing runtime comparison with stock configs?

    Thanks,

    Part No. On Order XR7090WT-U1-0022 (73.9-100.4 lm)
    Sorry no graphs or beam shots, not my forte.
    They are brighter & more efficient, almost twice as.

    Hi Rob

    for the XR-E upgrade to my existing Orb Raw NS order...

    BTW, have you noticed any decrease in terms of heat?

    Thanks again,

    Yes, Perhaps half the heat. So many photons so little heat.

    Wow! Twice the output and half the heat?

    Makes your beautiful Raw's even more amazing little pocket rockets.

    Really looking foward to seeing my much larger and uglier HDS EDC get out performed by such a tiny torch.

    Are you able to do these dual stage still?

    Would there be a burst type feature as offered with the K2's & u bins?

    These look realy nice.

    I'm guessing twice as efficient is compared to ubins?

    So maybee getting near, or nearer, an hour on high?

    These look realy nice.

    Did i already say that? well i've got to say it again; THESE LOOK REALY NICE

    The Raw Da is pretty small. Are you modding it with the McR-17 XR for the Cree ?

    So not so low 1 hour with approx 70-90 lumens from the XR-E. WOW

    And you do a high / burst mode aswell that I guess direct drives the LED. What kind of current is the high mode at in the NS, TS, etc.

    If the "Not So Low" outputs around 70-90 Lumens, then what is the output for the "Oh So High" output?

    Wink2 Re: It's all gone XR-E

    Just a brief aside:

    I have a custom Orb RAW LE built for me by Rob with a "lowly U-bin Lux III" and the "not-so-low" 2-stage. (only ~40 lumens at 350 mAh).

    The cool thing I've noticed is that if you lube the RAW with excess Nyogel (which is technically non-conductive), you can easily dial in a lower brightness (maybe 10 lumens low) by twisting the RAW towards off just a bit after the "not-so-low" engages. At this low level, you can get upwards of 8 hrs of light just as before.

    Voila - a functional 3-stage RAW!

    Hi Rob,
    That Orb Raw K2 I got from you has seen some hard use in grim conditions walking round Cape Wrath. So, it's better to buy a new one than try upgrading mine? Are the new ones likely to cost much more?

    Always good to here your Ns is being used..
    The cost on top of the Raw Ns is £20 for the XR-E & modified Reflector.

    Hey Rob, do you have any beamshots of the XR-E Raw's? If not, then could you try to decribe what the beam looks like compared to say a lux III Raw Ns?

    Edit: Opps, sorry! Didn't see your previous posting about you not having any beamshots etc. Sorry!

    Rob,

    To update my order from a Raw to a NS + XR-E. I've waited a while for the chargers to come in so I'm definately not bothered by waiting a while longer for a XR-E!

    Thanks!
