Thread: The Lounge 2018

    Vinh is a great guy for real. He sent me a neutral TN42vn90 head to test out against my cool white. I prefer neutral but the 6500K is a Fiat Lux so it's going to be a difficult decision for sure.

    Thanks Vinh!

    I'm pretty sure the VNX drivers are fet based ---- therefore Direct Drive---- only way of pulling more power is through cells--bigger wire-- less resistance

    I think it would be cool to play around with some of the new Nichia Optisolis in smaller lights!

    Fiat Lux Samples :-)




    D1Svn is Fiat Lux because its beam is 100%. A rare for a D1Svn. Rarely are flood lights Fiat Lux as all the beam are the same and nothing really stood out.






    Every order are in their own tray. Parts are named. If your light tuns out Fiat Lux then its your luck. I don't pick and choose or move them around. This is the reason why some 1st time buyers land Fiat Lux while big spenders doesn't have any. Some lights are Fiat Lux but V54 was not ordered so engraving is skipped.


    Sometimes I build multiple lights for my own inventory (which is rare, just no time) then I get to pick and choose the best if present. These lights sits on my shelf and gets sold as Fiat Lux. There is typically no mark up in price for a Fiat Lux. There is just no discount. This particular sample is the only among 30-45 TN42vn90 sold. Notice original bezel engraving match up with button placement despite gap between bezel and head as original tolerances are no longer present.



    Tail end V54 engraving also line up with button and Fiat Lux engraving via one of the three tail end ridges.



    Reflector& glass quality is 100%. LED is 100% centered. Beam and output is 100%. Notice the LED silver frame corner line up 100% with the factory and hand engravings.
    I am happy to realize how happy I am. Thus, a chain reaction of happiness.

    SR52vn90

    Hoping for 3500 Lumen and 300Kcd but missed the mark at 3000 Lumen and 240Kcd
    Other than that the performance is impressive hahah
    Very large hot spot and bright corona
    Perfect focus

    A lux of 240K while forming a large hot spot sounds like a successful flashlight.
    My flashlight preference is first to have a large hot spot. If I need more throw, then I need a bigger flashlight. Not more throw at the expense of shrinking the hot spot. Others mileage may vary.

    My guess was that he wasn't happy w getting 3000lm when that led can push upwards of 5000lm. This is just speculation though.

    The beam looks AMAZING as is for sure though!

    I'm happy with the performance. I'm just not Happy with the price that it would be with that performance...I sold this one for 300. Great deal for the lucky buyer though. If mass produced prive would be 450. At that price I want at least 3500 lumen and 300kcd....

    I only have a small designated time each day for R&D. It would be nice if I didn't have to worry about money so I can experiment all day long LOL
