    Default XM-L T6 3up bike light build log

    I just received my 3up XM-L t6 boards and Ledil optics.

    I will post more as I get into the machining but here are some pics. I am happy with the build quality and the Ledil Cute optics look promising based upon firing things up with the bench supply.



    Back of PCB and binning:



    It works! I tested it on the bench PS briefly and the vf was 10.3v at 3 amps:



    Pic of the Ledil Cute SS optic:



    I will be using a Taskled h6flex driver and trick waterproof Vishay pot and basing it on my earlier 7up builds like this:



    That's it for now. Will post more after I get to make chips.

    thanks for looking

    It is a bicycle light. I am really liking using a pot to adjust the brightness. No settings or anything to mess with.

    Update:

    I got the body machined, threaded and the heatsink done.

    heatsink machining:


    I threaded a long enough piece to build 2 or 3 lights for the heatsink.

    Rough light body threaded:


    Close up of the threads:


    The 3up xml cutter pcb is on the heatsink. Next up is wiring the h6cc and cabling + the external pot + machining the back and the mount...

    Thanks for posting this, however none of the pictures are showing up. Were they removed? There might be a problem on my end, but I can see picture of most other forums I visit.

    I have been considering doing a 3-Up XM-L build as well, but wanted to see your product for ideas.
