    Pot on Fatman brightness!

    I have my 50k Logrithmic Pot on the Fatman dialed in at 13.5k and when I adjust it it does dim but not that much. Is it supposed to dim very much? It seems like it dims slightly with about a quarter turn and the rest it doesn't at all! Is there another pot I can use with a better range?

    Fatman Technical Resistance.

    I was wondering if anyone new what resistance to dial in on the fatman for pure 1 amp power to the LED's? Using 8AA batts to power the beast. In the technical it says 13.50K but according to candlepower forums various views some seem to think higher. Please help with this conudrum of conudrums!!!

    Best LUX III BIN For Fatman?

    Im going to run a 3 LUX III's of a Fatman powered by 8 NIMH AA cells. They have 1.4v when fully charged and 1.2 nominal, so what would be the best Bin for this setup. They'll have 11.2 volts at max charge and 9.6 at nominal. I know theres some experienced Fatmen out there that have the answers...

    Mag Mod investigation.

    I'm planning on my first mod using a Fatman convertor board using a possible 2 D or more. I'm not sure if I should use a 2 D with an 8AA battery holder or 3 D cells. I plan on running 3 3-watt Luxeons at 1 amp. The thing is with a fatman is the efficency better if you get closer to the...

    Fatman total output current?

    Can I run a fatman to have 3 amps of output current. I'm thinking about making a Trilux III Mag Mod. I've already made a Quad Lux L bin for voltage and it runs fine on 4D cells. It gets hot but works great and I only used a small high watt resistor in the tailcap. It runs at 1100 to start...
