    Hahaha Quad-Cree Elephant-II (one more picture added)



    Quad-Cree XR-E
    · FM3V-2 Gun Metal 3" head
    · FM Gun Metal Elephant-II body
    · Cree XR-E R2 WC emitters
    · McR27XR reflectors
    · McR27XR centring device
    · MDXR-4-2 heatsink
    · MaxFlex2 driver
    · switch modified to momentary
    · 3x LIR 18650 cells 11.1V



    MaxFlex settings:
    UIB interface (5 levels)
    Output current on high = 1000mA

    Estimated output:
    4x 114 – 122 lumens = 456 – 488 lumens @ 350 mA (912 – 976 lumens at 1A).

    Estimated runtime:
    Runtime on high ~ 1 h 15 mins using 2200mAh cells.
    Runtime at the lower levels is ~ runtime next higher level x 2.

    Another Ellie spotted in Norway last summer and now on its way to Spain.
    for looking.

    Beautiful work Icarus! Clean and precise as always from you.

    I like all of the Elephant customs, but the quad is one of my favorites.

    Wow. Nice work! I gotta get back into this. 900 lumens in LED is awesome! A multiple LED light driven nicely by Li Ion like yours is sooo tempting...

    Nice Freddy!

    The quad-Cree is a great thrower, with great runtime. XRE's are old news, but my fav lights are built with them. It's hard to beat the throw of an XRE with the newer multi-die emitters.

    my friends for the kind words.

    Except for the aspheric mods this is the best throwing clustered led light I've seen so far.

    Hi Freddy,


    Good to see you modding again.


    Nice move going with the Cree emitters.

    I`ve lways favored them in the McR Reflectors for throw.


    Beutiful light and mod as always.


    Cheers,
    Benny

    Hi Benny,

    The Cree XR-E and McR27XR are indeed a great combination for throw.

    Hi criollo,



    Thanks for sharing, I'm sorry that I could not get those heat-sinks you wanted in time for your trip.



    With regards,
    Jo @ Britelumens

    Seeing your lights feel like watching the museum of Art.
