Thread: SUPER Baby Pin Converters Are Here !

  1. #1

    Default SUPER Baby Pin Converters Are Here !

    UPDATE 12-16-03 - the title says it all:



    Just need to confirm that the heatsinks are indeed done -- no need to wait for them to actually arrive, if need be I could even make them myself by hand (just didn't feel like grinding out that many).

    So I should be contacting the patient people on The List very, VERY soon.

    Again, Thank You for your patience all this time. It will soon be very, VERY well worth the wait.




    I am trotting this one out a little prematurely because we don't have all the electronics down just yet, but the output is already so good that I just had to share it.

    We know what these lights are, right?



    That "1,001" on the masking tape is the lux reading at one meter this particular Baby Pin puts out. The McLux is my personal one built by the great McGizmo using a BB750, I simply added a Q4H Batwing 1W Luxeon and NX-05 optic.

    And here are the beams of these two lights in the same order:



    It is apparent that soon, we will have to practically Give Away low domes to get rid of'em. High Domes (Lambertians) rule!

    So the upstart-ish Baby Pin with its 1,001 lux output thinks it's a pretty bad guy, eh? Not when put up against its much taller basketball-playing jock cousin, the Super LGI:



    The tape on the Super LGI is just a way of marking my keepers. And here are the beam shots of these two in the same order:



    Yes, the typical story of the tall jock beating up on his short nerdy cousin. So the short nerdy cousin goes home and tells his also-short brother, but although not evident in this picture, the short brother works out and takes steroids:



    So when they put the gloves on, this is the result (same order):



    The brother's output matches the Super LGI's!

    Yeah but what's the lux reading, you ask?




    Introducing: the SUPER Baby Pin. And let me add that this is a preview only -- he is NOT done working out...

    Thank you, guys.

    Just to make it worth the wait for loyal BulkAlumni faithful, I'm trying to develop this light as not only the brightest for its size, but to offer at least one other feature not available in combination with that kind of brightness in ANY mod up until now.

    That's all I can divulge at this juncture, at least until I am assured by overseas partners that we can indeed pull this off. Otherwise it'll just be plain ol' "brightest in the world"...oh well, can't have it all.

    Damn you to hell Bulkinator!! You goal in life is to completely deplete me of cash isn't it?? I just got my Baby Pin and before I even burn thru the first battery you have something that kicks its butt. Maybe I should just wait for the Ultra, Super Duper, Mega, IncrediBaby Pin, so I can see thru walls with it cause it's so bright. One that you have to wear sunglasses during the day to turn on. Ok Ok I want one!

    Unnerv and Wolfen, Thanks. Please watch for the "real" sign-up post later on (or just e-me).

    mst3k,

    I think this is destined to be The One (I guess you can tell I watched The Matrix and Matrix II). But this one could change everything.

    Really.

    Hi guys, thanks for chiming in, we gotta see what the price will be once the new converter electronics are finalized and the extra features (if any) can be made to fit in there. In the meantime, please feel free to e-mail me (with your CPF handles)...
