    Hey guys- just a warning on over applying AS-5 to p60 modules.

    I guess some creeped into the threads of my Linger module that Big C tested and caused it to dim n flicker. I sent it back to NB thinking the driver was bad.

    I had it slathered pretty good - guess its a bad idea to go crazy with it.

    AS5 is both non conductive and slightly capacitive. It's also only useful between very tight, almost microscopic gaps. If you need to fill a gap thicker than a sheet of paper you need to use a metal tape or foil of some kind + the thermal grease.

    ^^ word.

    If you look on some of the earlier pages in this thread Big C
    used quite a lot on some of the modules he was testing and
    did get improved results. I did the same but it eventually migrated
    to the threads on the pill and caused my drop-in to flicker and
    dim. just a smidge on the outside of the copper tape is probably
    best.

    They looked like rectangular shape to me, not square
    Just kidding.

    Corvette6769,
    The original version of PLI was also in the $57 range, but later on I lowered the price of PLI due to the camo color. Back then MC-E costs less than SST-50, the body of PLI also costs less than P-rocket. If it costs me more on this new product why should I sell it for less profit? I'm not in the business for charity, and I'm certainly not wealthy enough to do that. Just try to have my ends meet each day.

    Some people like 5700k color, others like 6500k,3000k and 4500k. Not possible for me to make P-Rocket in all different color range and have everyone pleased. Like you said, you can find lights on DX cheaper and brighter, which is great. But Shiningbeam.com is not DX, we are an American company and we can't survive on 10% profit like the retailers do in China. If you are not happy with our products' quality and price, just simply don't buy them.

    Hi BigC,

    Are you still doing this type of testing?

    Have you tested any XML U2 maglites? If so what is roughly the output @ 3A?

    Thanks

    Seems this isn't being updated any more. Sadly. Maybe it is time to un-pin it?
    Note to self, turn off flashlight when a plane is over head. Don't want them trying to land.

    As someone who recently purchased a used Surefire LX2, this makes me very happy. Looks like approx 240 lumens of output (initially) from a light rated for 200 lumens.

    The most impressive thing is that Surefire LX2 you can put a L1 XR-E bezel on it. Run a factory IMR 16650 cell and you will get close to 13.5K lux or so and about 300 real out the front lumens. That was my favorate Lego. Not very efficient since its direct drive and 1.6~1.8A but soo much lux from small bezel is cool.


    best,
