    Bogus1: I've sent paypal for 1 tri-flupic with a standard program and first class shipping. Thanks again for making these gems available again.

    I built a Aleph A-19XR with one of the flupics while I was watching Green Bay give up the ghost on Sunday. The light turned out great, but I kind of wanted Brent Favre to retire in a blaze of glory instead of throwing an interception in sudden death overtime.

    I also sent Fred a Flupic to put in my Blocky Boy.

    BTW, is there any kind of spec sheet on the tri-flupics around? I'm assuming that it has the same voltage limitations as the regular flupic, but that it runs three emitters in parallel based on what I've seen. But if it is more flexible than that, it would open up some other possibilities . . . .

    Actually the LEDs aren't driven in parallel. It is as the name sounds: essentially three Flupic drivers in one with each LED driven individually up to 1.2amp burst. To take full advantage you would need a 18650 or larger cell. If you want more info please be specific and I'll chew on Kevin for more data.

    Understood, I was using the term parallel loosely. The main thing I was wondering about is what the max voltage is, but I'm assuming that it is 5 or 6 volts and limited to a single Li ion cell. A wiring diagram would be good, too, although based on a quick look I think the markings on the board are probably sufficient.

    Well the picture being worth the thousand words probably works here too. Yes the voltage is the same as the regular FLuPIC limited to a single Li-ion. I've driven the single FLuPIC with great results with 4x AA NiMh cells. It overdrives the Crees and K2s nicely.

    Hi Bogus,
    Pack emm up good, the PO just lost 5 C-cells coming t me, out of a bubble envelope. Strange how one end somehow ripped open and then was taped back up with uspo tape and still left a hole open.. Grrrr

    Details on the PP order..
    Thanks again

    Billy D, the 150/800 Piglets have yet to arrive. Do you wish me to hold your order pending their arrival, or send the 50/500s in their place? The last option would be to ship two parcels, but that would cost more.

    acourvil, I hear you. I guess I lost spring chicken status now I can no longer read the fine print. That just happened this year. I think I'll keep blaming it on sitting too long in front of the monitor reading CPF

    Sorry if this was answered before.
    What high voltage limit for 50/500 Piglets.
    Can 18670 initial voltage in around 4.2 V. damage it?
    Thanks.
    Waiting for 150/800 piglets to come.

    Hi Russki,

    Sorry for the delayed response. The high voltage is 5v I believe, so a Li-ion is fine. It shouldn't be too much longer for the 150/800 boards.

    I managed to burn one FluPic with reverse polarity, and another light has been stolen at work. I need to replace these. I tried to order from your store and shipping of two 0.55" FluPics came to $26. That can't be true, please tell me what shipping to Sweden could be for two single 2.2 FluPics.

    StefanFS,

    Sorry to hear about your troubles with the store. I haven't heard of that happening. Did you select express mail? Can you please copy your shopping cart details and paste to me in a PM?

    First class would be about $7 and priority about $14 I think. My paypal is bogus1cc AT earthlink DOT net. If you copy your cart details to paypal and adjust for shipping that should work out. Please let me know.

    Hi Bogus1,

    What's the current limit on the tri-flupic? I have 3 LED's that are only rated to 700mA and would prefer not to toast them


    Thanks,

    Kris.

    Hi Kris,

    There is no real current limit on these other than DD on burst. Also I would need to know what you are running before I could give a rough guess. If your batteries don't have the capacity DD wouldn't be very high to begin with, however if you use the set levels and avoid burst you should be alright since you can program your levels from 1-10.

    Please let me know if this answers the question or if someone else wants to chime in.

    It would be for a AW 18650 running 3 white rebel 100's.

    Exactly the same as the light below except i'd like different levels.

    Hmmm . . . I thought that it had a 1200mA max per emitter in burst mode, like the standard flupic.

    acourvil,

    The tri-FLuPIC does have a burst of approximately 1.2amps if you have the battery that can provide the current. Burst is DD on these boards.

    KrisP,

    You can limit your LEDs in the area of 700mA, but I am not sure where that will be and I don't have rebels here to test. Otherwise I’d just be guessing.

    You could try adjusting the levels and measure the current to the LEDs until you find the max setting you want to use. Then you would just avoid burst or higher levels, unless you felt lucky or wanted a quick blast.

    I'm glad you are pleased. Care to share your application for these?

    The Piglets are hand built by Kevin (Goldserve) and take him a long time. These multi level buck/boost boards have been around for a couple years and yet there is a lengthy thread discussing a ‘new’ product manufactured overseas. Even so those boards are not being made available 'loose'. Sadly, after this batch is completed this may be the last of these boards that work well in ES cans and other standard size sammie applications. I will have another small batch of 50/500 boards and then a small batch of 150/800 boards and then we'll see.

    Eric thanks for update.
    I use piglet with R2 Cree in A19 with 18650 tube.
    It is the best combination of: 2 regulated levels, brightness and runtime to date (my favorite beam too).
    I use this light every day at my work, and can not be happier.
    I also in the process of building: 3 R2 Cree with Tri-flupic in Aleph 3 Head.
    And I have another project: Minimag light with R2 and piglet.
    I will post pictures if and when I am done and succeeded.
    I also wanted to build some lights using you parts. What stops me, there isn’t Cree canister in stock.
    Do you have plans to make more of this? I sort of fan of Cree.
    Thanks.

    Great projects! The Cree certainly has its advantages. This is true with TnC and mag lights where you can use the light without the head for lantern use and the glass dome is tougher than the gummy dome and doesn't attract dust.

    We will make more Cree canisters. One machine after another it seems broke down at the shop and had to be fixed. This has delayed restocking the Cree canisters as well as numerous other parts and projects
