    Thanks for the beamshots.

    That is an incredible creation.

    Only a true flashaholic would consider that to be a reasonable light to take on a walk or a run.

    Gotta love CPF.

    Astounding beamshots - some of the best I've seen. They give a complete idea of the capabilities of this superb light. As JetskiMark says, a great creation!

    Very good beamshots, gives us a really good comparison on how bright this creation really is.

    How many hours did it take you to create this monster?

    Thanks for the approving words!

    I didn't count the hours, but most time consumed the mechanical work due to the fact that I don't have any professional mechanical equipment. So I had to improvise many times, for example I did some milling with a cheap simple drill machine stand (with many scratches to my hands...)

    The electronic part is more the kind of work I'm used to, but even this took much time because I had to deal with more than 500W (>70A at 7V...).

    For the software I could re-use a lot I already implemented in my two previously made lights.

    I think I started with thinking about the concept of this light in July 2008...

    Turn off that light! Last night I couldn 't leave my house without my sunglasses - in the middle of the night. I live about 15 km away in Leverkusen (Germany).
    The german word for flashlight is "Taschenlampe" which means "pocket light". But this is something like a suitcase light.

    Viele Grüße (regards)

    @DM51:
    That's really a great honor for my to have my light mentioned between all these legends. So now there is slightly more LED presence in this area, thanks a lot!!!

    @Packesel:
    I pointed my light direction Koblenz, so you must have seen some kind of diffuse reflections
    And that large your pocket doesn't have to be: Outline dimensions are about 18cm x 14cm x 8cm. Not really an EDC, but much smaller that a Thor or similar.
    But you are right, I do not call it "Taschenlampe" but "Handstrahler".

    That's obscene.
    portable extended use flashbang?

    I am extremely impressed with your work, and I love that soldering job.. with an actual iron.

    Weight is about 2,5kg.

    Portable flashbang is good......

    Just want to mention another application for my light:
    Usage as powerful photo light. In the photo below I used the flood at about 10-20W. Could have been some more next time, there is enough room left until max power....

    My daughter playing in the bathtub (both camera and lamp kept dry ):


    Forgot to mention: ISO100, F3.3, 1/100s, White Balance Daylight, no Flash

    I think your next project needs to be a lightsaber. I'm not sure how else you can top a portable stadium light.

    Again, this is an awesome work!

    For what you will use it?

    You just did it!!! You justified the need for a second one. Think of the nice shadows you will get with a second light @ a different angle and @ 50% power of the main light.

    @deusexeathera: Next light will be either a really small light (samller than my David) or a HID monster (HID > 500W, need custom designed ballast operating from 2s-4s LiPo cells).

    @toby_pra:
    Will use it for:
    - running in the woods
    - barbecue in the dark
    - light on a small sail boat
    - photo light
    - video light
    - changing tires in the dark
    - .........
    - FUN!!!!

    @CampingLED:
    If I build a second big light, it certainly must have more power than the one previously built

    But anyone who poses for more than a few seconds would catch fire. That would throw the shadows all off, not to mention preclude a second sitting.

    But if you build an "HID monster", then you really are building a stadium light. That's already been done. You need to do something different. Like learn how to channel the Force, for instance.

    Holzleim, can I order two please. I have this "burning" desire to photograph my neighbour's cats that are catching the wild birds in my garden.

    By the way, you mentioned "burning"......
    A piece of paper being burned by the MC-E's intensive light output. Note that it is pure visible light that burns the paper. The LEDs do not emit any infrared light like an incan or HID.
