HI guys. On another thread I posted a question t using a LUX V emitter LE in a Mule.
OK I received my Black aleph Mule today. It is rather nice.
Now pulled one of my LE's out of a light. It happens to be a LUX V emitter based. I am pretty sure it was designed to be driven with 2 cells. On that thread It was posted that this would not be an efficient setup. Not surprising. I don't care. I will play until I receive the NichiaLE...and will continue to play if that doesn't do it for me.
Anyway I installed it into the mule and lo and behold I get a nice even (This LUX V has a pretty good tint) light. As expected. It run's hot.
Now that I have used it for more than just a couple of minutes I have discovered that this does indeed run hot. I need a cool running LE!! I don't know what kind of run time I will get but for the time being it will do fine. I have a Nichia based LE it's way just for this Mule. I will be very interested in how they compare.
I have so many Aleph based lights around here that I reckon could try them all to see which gives me the best ...Well Best what? I don't know since for me the Mule is new ground. I am very used focused beams.
I will report back.
I am interested in your experiences with different Le's with different emitters.
