Thread: Dewalt LED conversion Fusion 48 2000 lumens

  1. #1

    Default Dewalt LED conversion Fusion 48 2000 lumens

    Did a search but can't come up with anything recent. The newest thread I could find was 2012. I'm really impressed that I can get 2000 lm out of my Dewalt flashlight 18 V and in fact I feel like a dummy for not knowing about this sooner. I had already done the $10 LED conversion when it first came out and I was not at all impressed!

    It states run times of three hours which is pretty amazing to me and exceeds my Fenix TK75 it would appear. But because I can't come across any info on it in the last five years I'm just trying to get some kind of input.

    Looks like it's only sold out of country in Hong Kong and I can't find it locally. It doesn't state whether it's a white or a natural or a cool? So anybody know what the K range is? Says Nicha K1 LED WARM SHIFTED. What does that mean?

    Also I'm concerned about heat, any problems with that much heat on the plastic base flashlight? I guess any input would be nice

    I did, I ordered two of them for $38 each inc shipping! Since nobody seems to know much about them I will definitely do an update. They also offer others, 1200 and 1000 Lumen.

    They should have have great run times I would think and tremendous light output with that huge battery . I hope .

    They say three hours. It's win-win if it actually works. 300' throw FLOOD light!

    You're referring to this product, I take it:
    http://www.thefusionlite.com/20lu.html

    With that big finned heat sink, and it appears not much connection to the body of the light, I could see it being fine heatwise, but can't say for certain. I'm not seeing how it is retained, however, since the it looks like the normal lens and retaining ring the tool light comes with have to be removed to fit.

    2000 lumens for 3 hours should be pretty easily achievable with the big 4 Amp-hour battery packs, but probably not the 1.5 - 2 Amp-hour battery packs a lot of the starter kits come with.

    With these run times and illumination , I could do away with my quartz light for construction jobs or painting . Maybe , depending on the color .

    So I received both in the mail several days ago. Shipping was extremely fast considering it was coming from another country. Unfortunately I had already converted over to the cheaper LED kit that was the first to come out for the Dewalt and realized that I had discarded the old screw head and plastic cover as the original LED came with a complete replacement head in one complete package.

    This upgrade however is like a bulb replacement and so you need all the original stuff that came with it. I am a prepper and a pack rat and I knew I had it but I didn't know where so it took me several days to locate The conversion was than very fast. But let down overall.

    Now don't get me wrong, it is still the best thing going for the Dewalt flashlight available and it's more than ample and much better than anything else. So I would still recommend getting It.

    That said? It has no real intensity. Yes it lights up a very large area, but not as well as I had hoped. And the color of the light is kind of hard to explain. It's looks ( i'm not good with colors) whiteISH, but has a pinkish hue to it. Compared to any of my Fenix lights, like the TK75, it's not in the same league. Even my PD 35 is much more white and much more intense.

    Even in a dark bedroom it's just not going to light it up to bright. Again now, maybe I'm spoiled because of my more expensive flashlights and maybe if I have never owned any of them I would be very excited with this conversion!

    But it's very reminiscent in terms of intensity (brightness) and color of the beam of the very cheap $10 LED flashlights you can buy anywhere!

    I'm still glad I bought them, as I say it's the best thing going right now, but don't get your hopes up with all of these numbers they throw out there about 2000 lumens and such.
