    Getting a tight beam with xm-l's in divelights

    tight beam with 7xml possible?

    The leds and the driver arrived yesterday and i tested them. The beam is about 20 degrees with lots of spill, narrower if i increase a bit the distance between the leds and the optic. It's clearly not a dir style beam, but, it sure is ideal for night diving on a reef/wall.

    aspheric lenses have a focal length, so, if you want good throw you need to take this into consideration. so you need to test to find the distance between the led and the lens that will give you best throw.

    leds wired in parallel and in series

    it's easy to remove the leds, i did it. (same problem) hold the led with a small pair of pliers(you can find a good grip around the led-aluminium part) and then try to rotate the led, it will come of very easy AND DON'T WASTE MONEY ON DX AGAIN.
