    Default Mag SST-50 & SST-90 heatsinks

    I have had a few inquires on making a few of these. How many people would be interested in Mag "D" size heatsinks for these new LED's??

    Would they be based on emitters or for MCPCBs? I'm in if it's for emitters only.

    hmmm... i haven't yet jumped into mag mods, been more into pocket rockets so far, but i do love these LEDs (have the sst-90 in my 6P only at 2.5A) I would be really interested if it worked well. I guess I would need to see how many lumens could actually be put out and maintain thermal management...if you could get a mag lite that did 1500+ without overheating I'm in no matter what the price.

    I'd be interested, about time for another MagMod.

    Question Re: Mag SST-50 & SST-90 heatsinks

    How about instead of a heatsink a whole body that acts as the heatsink for it? I am thinking a one piece of metal with fins and flutes, it would be able to hadle the intense heat of those SST leds.

    I think FM prototyped such a light, google search...... Bingo! here it is

    Too bad this did not came to be. Just an idea for you to consider.

    Hi Mac,

    Interested for star mount heatsinks...would be good if the mounting point could adjust deeper into tube?

    Emitter only.

    From what I have seen these emitters have to go higher than the standard P7 heatsinks.

    I only started looking around to see who was making SST heatsinks for Mags yesterday.

    Two for me please.

    I also need a "D" for a SST-90-W. Thanks for the update!

    Those are two different sinks right, or are you able to make a multi-purpose one?

    Copper is way to expensive and heavy and offers no substantial gain over aluminum for flashlights from what I have read.

    $70 per foot compared to $10 for aluminum.

    I am with Mac on this one. Technically Copper is better thermally, but Al is "really" good for the job at hand.

    I would be interested in D size and also the C if this is also for the SST-50. Are you going to have the emitter on a center ridge with the plus and minus pads exposed like I did?
    There really isn't any need for an HA finish either on these.
    It's interesting that the SST-50 has a wider center solder pad than the 90.

    I would take one D-size for the bare SST-90.

    Interested! Well, not really for SST-90 though unless you manage to make the heatsink gigantic.
    Awesome! I just got the Luxoulree Z4 bin XD-Q! Wait... are you saying they released the Z5 bin the day after I bought it?

    I'd be interested in a sink for a D sized mag and sst-50. I think it would make for a pretty cool single cell, dd aspheric.

    I'm interested in two SST-90 heatsink for MagD if you could ship internationally.

    Was there enough interest to start design on this Mac? Any updates?

    No one picked up on this suggestion. Seems to me that if heat is really an issue, designing the whole light to dissipate heat makes sense. Or is it the case that the heatsink alone is cheaper and does a good enough job for 99% of applications?
