    Nice! Did you use any resistor with the RAW R/O?

    Photo's taken had a standard 3 volt CR2. Draws 700Ma @ 3volts.
    I have powered with RCR2 for a few minutes draws 1450Ma @ 3.5 volts. there is some volt drop on the RCR2.
    I feel Red Raw is plenty bright enough of a normal CR2.
    Adjusted focal point on Reflector also to produce nice smooth beam.

    Rob, does this mean I should only run my red raw off standard CR2's, NOT the rechargeables?

    I'll be looking for the mailman.......

    Thanks,

    Marc

    No, you can run of RCR2. He says Blinded.
    Just saying it is plenty bright enough of a CR2.
    I can add a resistor if you do not want to push your Red to 1450Ma.

    Sweeeeeeeeet. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Thank you again, Rob, for modding that for me - this looks like it'll be the default configuration for my Orb for some time to come, especially with the 3W white module still being available for me to swap this with. I particularly like that last shot with it on the Orb containers.

    As long as I can send it back to you for a led replacement/upgrade in the future (if needed), I'll stick with the un-resistored version!

    If I am going for a 'portable sun' it might as well be as bright as possible.

    Thanks again.....

    Haesslich, No Problem. ThankYou.
    Solar, It's not that easy with the Red. The Reflectors need 0.4mm of the small end to get a smooth beam.
    So really you need Reflector spacer & Red Raw Pill, Cost £17.
    Postage extra £2 for Uk.
    Marcspar, No problem with future Requests. I agree Belt out the most you can. Watch the heat after 5 mins.

    Just got my RB Orb back today - and damn, but it's bright. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] With the new reflector and battery, it lights up practically a whole room by itself, and the fluorescent properties of the RB are useful for locating dust, as well as the UV-reactive strips on money. Very prompt work, too. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I received my 2nd order yesterday with the red led and it is incredible to see SO much light come out of something so tiny.

    Thanks Rob! I guess I better start saving up for with a blue led....

    You should, Marc - it's worth it. Rob was the one who suggested the RB was damned bright, and a better mod than a LuxV, and he was right on both counts. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Incidentally, he repolished the Orb I sent him, and apparently redid the etching since it seems a little smoother than when it went in. Very nice work. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Almost sensual to the touch, as well, with the way it just fits in the hand - a heck of a difference after having carried the aggressive LH knurling or Aleph knurled lights for some time.

    What if I send you one (R/B)? Would you mount it and make it a drop-in?

    17 pounds for the red/orange drop in, reflector, space & glass. The same reflector, spacer and glass that came with the raw, right? Are the drop ins available without the extra items for less cost? (unless the spacer is different(?) and the reflector is also different(?))
