Here is the newest M@g custom to join the ranks. This build was designed to drive the XP-G @ 1.4A using the M@g rebel “deep” reflector. It’s overall output is significantly lower than several previous builds, but what it lacks in total ouput it more than makes up for it in throw. In fact, compared next to by quad XP-G, it has the “appearance” of being brighter due to the pencil like beam.
Thanks to ma_sha for his tutorial on m@g cutdowns from the tail which preserves the head focusing function. The size (1.5C) is a perfect fit in my hand and accepts all sizes of "larger" li-ion cells (26650, 26500, 18650). All maching done by hand with basic tools (hacksaw, dremel, file) pictured below.
Thanks to those that came up with the M@g C switch bounce fix (especially Aircraft800) that help solve that annoying level jumping with the multimode drivers.
Estimated ouput driven @ 1.4A is ~450 lumens compared by ceiling bounce next to my other lights.
