    Default Where to get Lux-RC engines from now?

    Hi all,

    Firstly I apologise if this has been discussed before. I tired searching on my phone but that seems to be useless. If this has been answered elsewhere please post a link and I'll bugger off in that general direction

    Anyway as the title suggests Sergi seems to be spending all his time on that Fat Boy light of his and his site has had 'coming soon' under the DIY section for quite a while now.

    So if its even possible anymore, how can I order his triple light engines? Part of my problem is that I want to use that selector dialogue he used to have but that is no longer available.

    An email to him might be a bit more productive than a forum post....I should probably start there.

    Any clue what's going on?

    He seems to be responding to emails, so there's still hope

    Yeah as I said in my first post I sent an email so we'll see what happens.

    let us know

    Not like my budget can handle it at the moment, but he definitely makes gorgeous lights with a great output and excellent choice of emitters and color.
    Last time I e-mailed him he still had a few in stock and said he makes a batch every now and then.

    According to Serge they still sell them. Orders can be placed through the sales area of Lux-RC (which is Serge anyway).

    I need to email him back and ask if he still has various power drivers, or if they're all the same driver now. I need this triple for a very small light and I don't want to be sticking a full 15W unit inside...

    So from that he's stating what are the most popular but I'm guessing higher output cool white emitters would still be available.

    Well, good that you got a response, I am waiting on an order, hopefully it will be here within 2-3 months...

    Hey though, just so you know, I don't think posting someone's private message/email is allowed, so you may want to remove it.

    The question was asked to a business' sales department, and there is nothing private contained within - it's just an inventory update. Furthermore, this information is relevant here and would probably prove helpful to a number of people.

    That been said, just in case (or until a mod can confirm) I'll remove it.

    Aha, finally someone has asked the question I have been wondering for the past few months. When Lux-RC transitioned to the new website I was on the verge of making an order from them. Ugh - I have been checking the website every so often to see if they had the triples back up for sale. Hopefully they will sell me some via an email. The Lux-RC triples really are the gold standard for performance flashlights it seems. Can't wait to get some and put them in a few lights.

    Hi Mattaus and everyone!

    Please email me at serge[AT]lux-rc.com (replace [AT] with @) or Skype ("lux-rc" name) or PM. Skype & email works much faster :-)

    The triple engine current version is 334. You can download the datasheet from this location. I'm sure it answers most questions.

    Sorry for the mess at lux-rc.com, I'm not the best when it comes to web design job. Really busy with electronics now.

    Thanks for replying Serge

    One thing I'm not not clear on - are the different types still available? As per the data sheet A, B, C and D type (4, 6.5, 10 and 15W)?

    Guys, please note that the LE vesion is NEVER printed on the components.
    See the version printed in the board.
