    Yepp, us Europeans are really nitpicking when it comes to metric measures

    Especially the French, since they practically invented the meter and produced a platinum bar of that exact length in 1799 (the International Prototype Meter) that still can be seen at the Pavillon de Breteuil near Paris. I once visited this place to look at the meter since it is a nice example of the ideals of "exact science".

    But behold, after the meters invention it was discovered that:
    - the meter is no natural measure after all. The idea of one ten-millionth of the distance between the North Pole and the equator had to be abandoned since earth is not a perfect globe.
    - the meter bar finally produced is actually a little short due to miscalculations

    So much for exact science. Of course, the meter does seem to be a more exact measure than an average man's thumb.......

    While we are looking at pics, a Haiku pinning down a Sundrop in the snow:

    Looks like wave 2 is over. Did you mange to snag one barefootone?

    I swapped my Haiku head to a 2x123 Ti pack to use with a 3.7V LiIon.
    It really looks nice on Don's 2x123 pack. I only wish the electronics could handle 2 CR123s.

    My Haiku arrived today together with the first signs of spring

    (No, no snow drops yet but at least temperatures above the freezing point)

    It's absolutely marvellous, I love the overall fell and the three stages. Because I'm at work I took it to our storage room in the basement in order to test the beam and it works great, though I suspect that my LS20 would be more practical for a job like that (yes, we do have electricity in our archive but that would be rather pointless now, wouldn't it).

    Don, thanks for this wonderful light!

    Now, how does that proverb go again: "third time is a charm" or in German "all good things come in threes"? Well, I have to ponder that for a while

    I absolutely love my Haiku. Excellent output, beam and tint quality is outstanding. Three level function is perfect. Beautiful Ti machining. Beautiful design. Uses primaries or rechargeables. Super-awesome McGizmo!

    Right now, I really want to put a GITD rubber clickie cover on my Haiku as well as my Sundrop and my Q5 McThrower. Maybe some glow o-rings for the other areas...

    Hey Sgt.LED!!! What should I get and where? (lighthound?) I would like my Haiku to look like yours!

    Mine starts flickering after a few minutes on high using RCRs. I've tried 3 different kinds of batteries with the same result. Anybody else experiencing this?

    Default Re: The Titanium "Haiku"

    Nake,
    I hadn't responded because I have no experience with the R123's. I have just responded in some depth to your e-mail regarding this issue but since I have no experience with the R123's my response was based on speculation and guesses. If others who have the Haiku's and are using R123's can adds some comments or data points here, it would be helpful.

    I am using RCR123 black (old AW, before he puts a label on them, I think) and I haven't any flickering problem...How many minutes did you use it before flickering starts ?

    I tested 4 different R123s, two with protection circuits, two without. They were AW and Ultrafire. One each protected and non from the two brands, I don't know what the voltage was under load, but each was 4.1xV checked with a MM. With every one the flickering started after 90 sec. I waited 5 min. between checks to let the light cool down.

    I haven't had any issues using AW protected cells. Hope you get it worked out.

    I have the heads for the next wave completely assembled. I lack the McClickie power paks which are scheduled to be run by the machine shop in the next few weeks. I hope for the end of April to launch the next wave but it could easily go into May.

    Don, would you consider making a run of just these nice Haiku LE's?


    I have an Aleph or 2 that would be loads nicer if this was the LE in them!
    Doubt I'm alone

    Default Re: The Titanium "Haiku"

    These LE's are not compatible with the Aleph heads without some modifications as far as I know. They are host to the Cree LED in a different height than the original A19 LE's.

    Besides that, I am running out of the converters from the first batch and there has yet to be a new batch scheduled. What I have left was slated for this next Haiku wave with a few left over for R&D and back up.
