    Default 10000 Lumens?

    Take one Osram HLX 64655, 4 4Ah Nimh 6 volt sticks, one Coleman hand held spotlight, 3 hours time, a little solder, a new switch, a few connectors and what do you have?

    10000 lumens of blinding white power!!

    This thing is bright, it obliterates the 3 million CP Vector twin 12 volt light I have. Its beam is huge, bright and white.

    I can't even figure out how to do beam shots yet because it just eats everything else up.

    I may need to do a capture with my video camera and then pick out a frame to post.

    Thanks for the bulb, Ginseng!

    P.S. I just realized this should probably be in the Spotlights/Lanterns/HID forum.

    Mods, please feel free to move it if you wish

    Outstanding! The Ken4 has been reincarnated as the...Bill10K? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon3.gif[/img]

    Let's see the pics!

    Let me know if you want any more bulbs for backups. I've got a bunch of NIB spares.

    That's pretty impressive coming from a $10 dollar bulb . Let's see - for the price of a 35 watt HID, you could put 9 more in your light, but then you would probably need a license to operate it.

    Have you compared it with any of the HIDs yet.

    I'll try, but all I have is a cheap digital, I doubt it will do it justice!

    Admins, help!!

    What am I doing wrong to not get these to post correctly?

    These are NOT good images, the only purpose they serve is to give you a relative idea of brightness.

    The Mule battery was starting to fade a little, I had it on for 6-7 minutes before I got a picture and it had been run quite a bit today just for show and tell!

    Mule, partial charge, probably down 30% or so. I would estimate it was still making at least 1500-1800 lumens.

    10,000 Lumens! Check out the size of that hotspot! To the naked eye, most of that apparent artifact isn't noticeable because of the amount of light your eye has to cope with.

    As I said, not very good pictures, I'll do better when the Mule Proto is ready to post full on.
