Thread: Triple Cree XM-L Mag-Lite .... and the story continues

  1. #1

    Default Triple Cree XM-L Mag-Lite .... and the story continues

    Now after the triple Seoul P7, here its successor the triple Cree XM-L!!



    Didn't took very long to put everything together as it was a pretty easy and simple mod. I used Cree MC-E reflectors which work pretty nice.



    I took this:





    glued that into the triple Seoul P7 heatsink and connected it with the 2.8A driver of the Seoul P7:





    and wired everyhing up:





    everything back into the flashlight:





    and then I got this ( the room lighting wasn't turned off during the shots) :





    Low mode:





    view from another angle:





    It throws pretty good

    Yes, I'm back! I have some of DW's heatsinks decked out with SSC P7 emitters so I will need to get new reflectors, or modify the ones I have.



    Almost all all of my other lights have been modded to XM-L or XP-G. No time to post..

    Hi Wichtel,
    long time no see!

    do you plan to sell these boards with a kit
    or is it for "private use" only?

    Extremely glad to see you back, your builds inspired me to do some of the ones I have done.

    The new XML reflectors work very well it seems from beam shots. I used the MCE reflectors with SST-50s with very good results.

    That's a nice looking design. A 3 XML kit will be nice.

    I'm interested in this as well. If I have one of your older Triple MC-E kits, will this fit?

    Default Re: Triple Cree XM-L Mag-Lite .... and the story continues

    Yes but the reflectors will stick out a little bit

    just for my understanding, pls help!

    when 3 LEDs are powered the drag from the Liions is around 9A???
    so regular 18650s would not work and I need IMRs?

    what if I have 3 cells the amperes are divided on the cells? 3 x 2,8A??
    sorry for my poor electronic background

    I have good news and bad news.
    First, I picked the parts up today and the reflectors throw pretty good.
    Bad, I mixed up some numbers so that the reflectors don't fit as planned. I think I have been a little bit in stress because of the exam period.



    Luckily I just got my new lathe installed. Just have to wait for the tools to get the reflectors right.

    Are the reflectors designed for the XM-L or adapted from another LED?

    BTW Nice work

    At first I have to say: good job!

    Did you have some comparisons to a triple cree xp-g R5?
    At the moment I use a selfmade cavelamp with 4 xp-g`s, and want to mod my old mag with a triple xml too.
    I need more and more and more light for good pictures in big caves.
    So a triple xml will be a good idea.

    Now my question, get the head of the light hot? It`s usefull to buy a heat-control?
