Thread: Lumapower Lumacraft D-Mini Cree

  1. #1

    Default Lumapower Lumacraft D-Mini Cree

    I just received the Lumapower Lumacraft D- Mini Cree. Shipping took 5 days to Socal!

    Fit and finish is excellent. Machining is excellent. No flaws in the anodize II.

    Comes with extra o-rings, pouch, lanyard, reverse clickie and GID Rear Clickie cover.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Comes neatly packaged.

















    What caught my eye is a deep reflector.



    Came with the momentary on twist on off switch installed.





    I swapped out the switch to the reverse clickie with GID rear clickie cover.



    Top, D- Mini. Bottom, Fenix P1D CE



    Left, D-Mini. Right, Fenix P1D CE



    D-Mini @ 27"



    Fenix P1D CE @ 27"

    Great pics ernsanada. I didn't realise all the extras came with it. Mine is on the way also, in aluminum.

    I'm sure I will be buying more Lumapower products soon.
    The beatings will continue until morale improves!!!!

    Thumbs up Re: Lumapower Lumacraft D- Mini Cree

    Thank you, ernsanada. Great photos as usual. The "real world" beamshots in particular are great.

    And, Dad, your silver beauties are a joy to behold!

    Nice, simple and useful review as always, ersanada. Looks like the D-mini has a bright ring around the corona instead of a dark ring! Haha....

    Dad, the bare-al lights look awesome.

    The P1D CE is on high, it won't go into the lower levels due to fact it's a RCR123.

    It's a little throw monster. The D-Mini kills the Hunt Light FT01X Se U Bin. I'll try to post some beamshots tomorrow.

    Well, Ernie keeps showin' off his "family" shot in my Lumapower thread, so I thought I'd return the favor.

    Ernie, thanks for the great review and beamshots. My D-Mini didn't make in today so it'll probably get to me on Tuesday. However, your review will hold me over until then. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    I have done some hotspot Lux measurements.

    • At 1 meter with a Battery Station 3.7 V Li-Ion, ten readings : Varies between 6900 Lux and 7050 Lux.
    • At 1 meter with a new Panasonic CR123, ten readings: Varies between 5900 Lux and 6090 Lux.
    The ringformed hotspot is the probable reason for the variations. A VERY bright flashlight.

    The Energizer primary gave a very respectable 59 mins to 50%. My 750mA protected AW RCR only lasted 29 mins until the protection circuit kicked in and the light shut off. Second run with another cell was slightly worse at 27 mins. Results seem pretty reasonable, given what's been reported for Fenix P1D-CE on high.

    FYI, runtimes were done on my homemade light meter (photoresistivie CdSe cell hooked up to my DMM, attached to a standard milk carton for overall output measurements). The Y-axis scale is completely relative (my light meter is uncalibrated for lux, but has been verified to be perfectly linear within the range of light intensities reported).

    A couple of beamshot in the dark.

    Top picture without the lamp on and bottom picture with the lamp on. Makes it easier to compare. Distance to the white fence perhaps 80 meters.

    Good photos ersanada! It shows that the D-mini really does out throw the fenix! That hotspot is intense!

    I opened the bezel. It's hard to see the Cree because of the flash.
