    Default Hotwire Q: Bulb suggestion for 3D host?

    Hi all,

    I have a Mag85 (my first!) with AW's 3 level soft starter and while it's a great light, I am now wondering what hotter bulbs can I run in this? Would I get good results from an Osram 64610 with 3x Li-Ion D cells? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am a hotwire newb. Thanks!

    hi,

    gongratulations for your hotwire!

    first of all: li-ion cells are not the BEST for hotwire built...they are perfect for a mag85 (maybe the best type of batteries ) but they stop to work with high amps bulbs....they can hold 5,5Amps but not more....

    anyway you can run a lot of other bulbs for better runtime ()...like WA1331, WA 1306 or CL809...but I don't know if you are looking for more runtime........

    my suggestion, if you want to have an hotwire with more than 6Amps, is to get a good NiMh battery pack fro CPF member LuxLuthor....

    Hi Filippo!

    Thanks for the welcome to team hotwire (and back to team incan)! Basically my goal is whatever setup achieves max lumens with at least 30 minute runtime at max output, and a nice white-ish color (similar to the Mag85) on high.

    NiMH AA's are ok, I have a bunch of Eneloops...

    soory but seems to me that the best for what you want is just the mag85...
