    Im already planning on a heavy glowpaint coating in the inside lip of the blitz housing that surrounds the rim of the reflector.

    Have you seen my BB?
    Im sure the Blitz will look even more impressive!

    Wouldn't the glow paint lessen the lumens?

    Its not on the reflector.. only the outside rim of the housing.





    I added glowrings too.

    BVH, have you compared this to your Larry14K (knowing that the latter would not have the same color & hotspot).

    Lux, just from memory. The LK14 definitely puts out more light over a very, very wide area. It's just a site to behold! But I'm a "throw" guy so I like the Blitz more - or will when I build myself another one.

    Windy, how did you apply the glowpaint in such a clean and consistent bead?
    Was there a groove or something there?

    I"m not looking at it right now.. but there is a flat surface on the outside of the rim and I took a small craft paintbrush and put many layers of glowpoint on it. If you go over, its pretty easy to remove it with your finger and a paper towel to clean your finger while its wet.

    Somewhere there is discussion as to whether I should put it anywhere inside the reflector "like on the base of the bulb" as they do with LED's but decided it gets far too stinkin hot in there and may make fumes or discolor and best.

    The glowsticks were just a gaudy afterthought. .but I like them.
    Not good if your trying to hide with your light off!, but you won't lose your light in the dark with those tritium glowsticks "rings".

    There are also some very thin tiny ones a round the on/off switch to top and sides....

    I'm just a flashy kinda guy!

    Note the brightness ratings and length of duration with the different colors.. unless you really want another color, green will be the best and the "V10" products have the highest concentration of powder mixed into the product.

    If you did get it from the source you quoted.. it appears the "ultra glow" may be brighter and cost a tad more.. but I didn't see if they revealed thier brightness ratings and how that would compare I don't know.

    Good links Windy. I especially got a chuckle from the Glow Inc. site under the "police flashlights" projects. They use the following quote,

    "He used our product to paint glow in the dark rings around his maglight. His intention was to allow quick retrieval in the dark.To his surprise, it also had another more important benefit. He found that it had an odd calming effect on excited, disorderly, or intoxicated suspects. He found that the suspect would focus on the oddly glowing flashlight and would briefly be distracted from the anger. This brief distraction has proven to be adequate to slow the situation down. He says that almost all of his suspects completely focus on the flashlight and it greatly improves their behavior."

    Patriot say says in a 60's hippie voice, "wow man....that's far out flashlight occifer."

    Wonder how Lip's 84watt bulbs would go in terms of beam pattern in these Lightforce driving lights? As they use 100w XENOPHOT not HID.

    But the HID lights are way more $$$$

    I'm guessing it would be about the same as the Blitz 240 84W bulb mod...right? It looks like the same reflector from the same company.

    I was going to use it for a dual sport bike, Probably would need to add spaces as the beam would throw too far. Id like a big beam around 80-100m thow.

    That battery has an internal BMS under the shrink wrap that performs balancing after the charge is complete. The two smaller wires are the dedicated charge wires and the larger wires are dedicated discharge wires. Yes the ballast will get hot after a while. Another reason for limiting run times to between 5-7 minutes.

    There's a voice from the past!
    Greetings!

    I'm still subscribed to your thread...
    Have you built any 120v mag nasty lights similar to your 240?

    I now overlook the lake from a bit of elevation so would love more muscle obtainable with handhelds.

    Hi Windy! I thought you disappeared for good! No, haven't built any handhelds for a long time. I like the Heavy Iron military and aviation stuff these days. Good to see you here!

    Ok, great to see your voice! 😆
    Would be ok to put a tripod system on my deck if I didn't mind not being married......
    I gave my mule away lips made me to someone who needed it to spot deer in his garden but it was just a prototype anyway and the host shell was weak.

    I know you're projects are your babies and prob worth more to keep than sell.... Seems all the good stuff is that way anyway.

    Keep me in mind if you run across something I may be interested in that keeps it under several hundred bucks!

    Handheld is definitely desirable but I figured would cost more per lumen.. I have outlets to dedicate so that's fine
