You always need to add enough thermal capacity, regardless of the thermal transfer method. Don't forget that the host will be the majority of this thermal capacity.
Btw, did you know that aluminium has 3 times the thermal capacity of copper by weight? Only because copper weighs about 4 times as much as aluminium it wins on that front.
Sorry ma_sha, will stop now and wait for updates of this very usefull build
How about we rally together & sing "Kum-ba-ya" under the Swan blaster?
Currently at 42 million cps, it's about the length of VP turbo, just fatter, will need 200 de-domed VPT together to make-up the lux
I am actually thinking about selling this mag to fund a new lamp, 260W/0.8 mm arc, yum...
if you are selling the cbt90 mag, please make sure colonel buys it... my pocket book cant afford seeing a fs: cbt90 thread right now!
Yes.... I just said that.
I give up
but my light still has 36 modes
Why do you need a new lamp? Shouldn't it last for like 2000 hours?
Why has your light not beaten the Maxablaster yet?
I am having a hard time focusing the lamp precisely, a wide swing gets me anywhere between 38-43 million cps. The 3 point focus mechanism I copied from RA is a pain in the butt to use when precision focusing is needed.
Theory numbers always come short in front of the cruel reality of lux measurements, looks like a new 0.8mm arc lamp is necessary for swan blaster to beat maxa blaster in throw.
I need to build a new lamp module but still cringing at the thought of doing it again.
love the multi led 7135 wiring method of yours!
