    Building Maglite - Need some Specialized assistance!

    I must say, shipping takes a very long time. I have not received any parts for my maglite mod yet... We just got hammered with 2 Nor-Easter's and so we have had many days without Postal Service... Still looking forward to modifying my Maglites!!!

    SWEEET!! Exactly what i was hoping from someone as kind as yourself! :twothumbs Only thing left for me to find is some AA carriers to get some ultimate power out of this emitter. BTW, which would have more battery life? 3 D cells or 9 AA cells? Would there be a noticeable different in lumens?

    very nice thread! Lots information! I learned something! So am at the point where... it really isnt gonna matter to me what type of LED i go with, i just want to be pointed in the direction of one or the other by someone who has a nice thrower maglite with aspherical lens... I am confusing...

    Ok, I guess i need to decide between one or the other. As for battery power, what voltage should run to these emitters and will i need 3D cells or 9AA cells?

    im only going for throw, so whatever produces a nice tight beam is what im looking for! so whichever is best gonna serve the purpose for a "spotlight" type of beamshot with the aspherical lens, then thats the emitter I want to go with. I was going to cut the reflector down so it would fit...

    I was going to use aspherical lens because I want a Thrower mag. I was assuming I could still fit a reflector in the head along with the heatsink amd lens, no?

    Can you make this conclusion? Also, which of the two is the brightest.

    Is the Q5 or R2 the same as the XRE you suggested? Or are hose ober options as well? Once you start throwing out more options you get me twisted up in choices! In an aspherical lens setp for throw, which of those emitters would you suggest? And where would you suggest buying the bare emitter...

    So the Setup would be... 3D Maglite Aspherical Lens CREE XRE Emitter ? - Heatsink ? - Battery Supply Ok so now I need to understand what battery supply i should be running for this setup and what Heatsink will be coupled with this CREE XRE. I would like to have a good amount of battery life...

    WOW! I didnt realize the amount of choices that is offered! Holy Smokes! Well.... I entire goal out of this build is to create a VERY bright (obviously brighter than stock maglite bulb) And with an excellent Throw. I am going to be using an aspherical Lens to increase Throw. My original...
