Thread: Titanium Mule Wave

  1. #1

    Default Titanium Mule Wave

    Hi Guys,
    This is a wave offering of a titanium Mule High CRI light complete (and if there is interest we can add the head only, to the offering)

    For more info on the High CRI LE at the core of this light, See Nichia 119 LED. The Mule head is the same design and physical form as the Aleph Mule head I used to offer in aluminum but this one is in 6-4 titanium. It has a 1mm thick Sapphire window. The 1x123 McClickie pak is the same pack used with the SunDrop and Haiku.





    The Mule Hi CRI is being offered for $410 plus shipping *

    I do want to state that my hope and intent is to process the e-mail orders for these on a first received/ first processed basis and ideally the response to your e-mail order will be a notification of shipment. I don't want to add to the number of communications by sending an acknowledgment prior to generating the postage notification.

    These lights are available on first come first serve basis; as determined by e-mail orders I receive which are clear, concise and include the must have information:

    In the subject line of the E-mail please state: Mule Hi CRI
    Your CPF name
    (if you have one)
    Your real name and mailing address
    phone number if international shipment
    Any exceptions to standard shipping, which is priority mail.
    If the shipment is domestic and you want insurance, please so state. (No insurance offered on international shipments)*

    For my general info on how I process these offerings, please refer to THIS THREAD.

    All of these lights sport some tool marks and various cosmetic singularities. Some may be obvious and some you may need to look closely for.

    If you receive one of these lights and decide that it does not meet your expectation then you can either lower your expectations or simply send the light back for a full refund. I won't offer an exchange for probably obvious reasons. (please don't abuse this offer)

    Like all of my Ti lights, the Mule High CRI is designed to be sealed from the environment and external pressure but I make no claim or suggestion that it is a dive or underwater light.

    Thanks guys!

    * shipping is via Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation or Global Priority mail. If you wish shipping via an alternative method, or signature confirmation or insurance on domestic shipments only, please specify in your e-mail order. If you want insurance, I will also add the expense and option of signature confirmation to your shipment.

    Yes.
    I don't want to confuse these waves with all of the possible combinations but that doesn't mean the can't be had. With the 6V LE, the drive level will be ~450 mA.

    If you guys want to figure out prices, The Mule High CRI head with 3S LE is $235 and with the 6V LE it's $240. Pack prices are as posted elsewhere.

    Don, I could not find what drive level the 3v Mule is driving the 119 Nichia at although I may have missed it. Would you mind stating it (or repeating it) please?
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine

    I tried to send a mail, but it comes back to me with an error message, e-mail was correct...

    The reason for the problem:
    5.1.0 - Unknown address error 553-'5.3.0 nlpi151 DNSBL:ATTRBL 521< 195.46.255.243 >_is_blocked.__For_information_see_http://att.net/blocks'
    Reporting-MTA: dns; mailout1.pt.lu

    What's this?

    EDIT : Seems to be on my providers' side, the problem, I just resent from my work mail address and it seems it went through. Weird, I mail constantly with Don..

    The reason for my mail :

    I want a Titanium Mule high CRI with a 2xAA body.

    It's a description given lights with no reflector and they put out a very smooth beam with no hotspot. Not much throw at all, but such a smooth and seamless beam pattern.

    fortean101,
    I coined the term mule a while back because I needed a name for a light and I wanted that name to reflect the nature of the light. I perceive the mule as an animal that just does its work with no glamor. Nothing to brag about. Unlikely to be any contestant; what contest?

    Guys,
    You can get this as a High CRI Head only and I am willing to offer the head without LE for those interested. If you want the titanium mule head empty with no LE the price is $110 plus postage.

    I didn't want to start this wave and confuse the issue with all of the possibilities. The price for a Mule that was host to a XP-G LED instead of the Nichia 119 would be the same.

    I need to get around to editing the UV wave with the addition of this titanium mule head as well.

    This titanium mule head has the same geometry as the previous aluminum version and some will note that it seems to have a short skirt when coupled with the battery pak. The O-ring is digested in the head but can still be viewed. This consideration was originally made for use with the SF L1 lights and other battery paks that had shorter penetration than typical or the standard.

    The mule head has a lot of potential applications. The LE in a Makai can easily be removed with no concern to reflector alignment or O-ring positioning and screwed into a Mule head and then returned to the Makai. Obviously the thermal relief would not be the same!!

    Don,

    What about the price of a head/bezel with the light engine in it but no body/battery pack ?

    Well, if no 2xAA pak is available by now, I'll take a "normal" Mule high CRI!

    I'm sure I can get a 2xAA pak later on, with another light, there will surely be one...

    E-Mail sent.

    Thanks!!!
