    No kidding! I think I see why the higher than expected price for this case. So the domed piece is made of plastic or metal and is it glued in place?

    Made out of black Acetal and will press into place, so hopefully no glue is needed.

    Gen 2 looks awesome! I hope there will be another run of them sometime since I've still been too lazy to build up my gen 1 unit.

    Matthew, do you know if the multi-xpg modules from the thread below, will work in these shells (gen 1 in particular)? Thanks.

    There will not be another run of GenII. This is the absolute last!

    Those modules are cutters, that person has just imported them to Europe so either module one or two will work.

    GenIII will be an amalgamation of the cutter 7up board and design cues from this light! This will be my last iteration of a dual lens setup

    Nice! I've got a spare 7 up board/optics which needs a home and was thinking another Troutie case was in order but perhaps...

    I have had some interest in some more units on this order, for me too add a few more units. I will need at least three more solid preorders. Any Takers?

    It depends on how the first one turns out. I might have to build another for my friend.

    I needed a name to develop my brand of lights, because these are designed and made in Sydney, Australia. I have decided to call my products...



    GILI


    It means "Light" or "Fire" in the language of the Aboriginal Eora people of Sydney, the original and rightful owners of Australia.

    I know they aren't due yet, but just wondering if there are any updates from your machinist? Are we still on track for delivery this month?

    Forgot to comment earlier, but I think that name is HOT! It is refined, memorable and just plain catchy. I think you have a winner with GILI!

    The Machinist has finally got around to this job, all front and rear sections have been made.

    The custom cutters required for the main body section have been made and are being used on the main section, hopefully everything should be done by end of next week.

    I have received all other associated material. Here is a quick pic.



    Amongst that pile is the switches, screws, silicone orings, silicone hookup wire, tinned power cable, grommets and molex plugs!

    Called the anodizer today. will be ready to pickup on Wednesday next week.

    Huge apologies for the delay's, the late arrival of custom cutters used on the main section threw everything out of whack.

    I would like to try and get everyone who hasn't yet paid the full amount (excluding whoever I haven't already made prior arrangements with) to pay over the next week so that I can get them all sent off on the same day.

    Please also note, that I cannot be held responsible for lost parcels when sent by standard Air Mail ($15.30 + $2) if you want insurance I can send it via Registered Post International ($26.50 + $2) http://auspost.com.au/

    I will be including 1m of quality two core tinned cable (which suits the cable grommet) if you want extra lengths please add $3/meter (price includes shipping)

    Here is a breakdown of what is due.

    Everybody except h22 and johnF sent the original deposit amount of $20 without including PayPal fee's (so this reduced to $19)

    So...

    +$119 Base Price
    +$17.30 Postage and Packaging (or $28.50 for registered + insured mail)
    -$19 Deposit
    =$117.30 Total excluding PayPal Fee's
    +3.4%+$0.30 Fee's
    =$121.60 Total Including PayPal Fee's

    Shrigg Paid - 5th May
    baexmeyer Paid - 7th May
    kwarwick Paid - 6th May
    h22 Due: Paid - 8th May
    h22 as above
    coldass Paid - 6th May


    If I have made an error please correct me.

    Don't forget to email me your correct address details! (as well as your CPF username)

    So I am thinking about setting up my MaxflexV5. I have some 4x18650 3.7 packs in series therefore 14.8v driving the 6xXPG also in series. I'll most likely run this to the max 1200mA (with the 5 Maxflex settings why not). I am looking for some help in choice of some settings...

    What do you all think the V Cut, V Med and V Low should be set at?

    What about thermal protection level? Matt any thoughts here?

    Any thoughts or experiences - mostly for the V Cut setting would be appreciated.

    Oh I should add I don't know if my packs are protected or not (they are packaged from an older Vicious Power HID - I can't easily get inside the carbon fiber pack...). Should this matter?

    Regarding the Thermal cutout, I haven't had a chance to do comprehensive thermal testing yet (I am waiting on large LED order from cutter) once that is done, I will post an update. But I would suggest keeping it at its minimum, default for now.

    AW's 18650 cells have a low discharge value of 2.5v, so I guess V Low (cutout) should be about 10v. But I am not an expert on batteries, especially the one that you mentioned, so it would be good if someone could confirm.

    V-med would be halfway in between 10v and 14.8v

    For the warning and cutoff voltage, you can basically take TaskLEDs default values (which are for a 2 Li Ion pack) and double them. So for V Cut set it at 12V, V Low at 13V, and V Warn at 14.4V.

    One thing to watch out for is a battery pack that sags significantly under load. I had this problem with a 4x 18650 pack that would drop 1-1.5V under the load of 7 XPGs at 1000ma, so it was triggering the voltage monitoring way too early. I ended up moving to a LiPo pack which has way lower internal resistance so sags a lot less under load.

    I would set thermal protection as low as possible... 60C in this case is a good starting point and maybe move it up to 70C if it triggers too quickly.

    My first guess was to double the 7.2V values in the manual. But it seemed to me that 12V V Cut was too high (most of the cells PCB are at 10 or 11V) and 14.4 V might be too low. But your right, in absence of alternatives I think I'll stick to your suggestion.

    Has anyone done the math on run times for 6xXPG R5 at various MaxFlex settings from say a 2.4ah 4x18650. I guess about 2hours at max - am I right (forgive my feeble math ability)?
