    PWM drivers? Help me please.

    Hey, I got a little technical question. If a PWM driver on 100% is direct drive, 50% LED brightness would be achieved by pulsating the voltage to achieve the correct amount of average voltage. What happens if my batteries are so depleted that my direct drive mode is basically as bright as the...

    Hi, I'm looking for a replacement battery for my Dell Latitude laptop. Usually you have the choice between super expensive Dell batteries or the china aftermarket stuff, which sometimes doesn't even have half of the capacity of the Dell one. Isn't there a manufacturer out there that actually...

    Dive light?

    Hey Vinh, have you have thought about building a high lumen dive light? Cooling wouldn't be a real problem anymore and high lumen dive lights are expensive as hell. I'd take one from you in an instant. :D

    Anyone still making Quad XP-G dropins?

    Hi there, I acquired a custom made quad XP-G dropin from VanIsleDSM a long time ago. It's still the best dropin I ever had and I have never needed anything else since I got it.

    Which cells to use?

    Hey, I ordered a Cree diving light from china. Now that I've recieved it, I doubt that it is properly sealed and I'm a bit worried about my cells being shortened. Should I use LiMn or protected Li-Ion cells to be safe ? (just in case...) Regards Tobias

    No love for the RRT-3 XML?

    Hi there, I'm just wondering why there's no active thread or any review about the RRT-3 tripple XML. Is it because it just has upgraded emitters and other lights like the Tiny Monster are completely new and fancy? I got a good offer from my local dealer and I'm trying to find a good...

    1550mA Triple XP-G with a single cell?

    Hi, I'm wondering if it makes any sense using a 1550mA over a 1100mA triple XP-G LUX RC board when using a single cell? My Moddoo triple gives about 2.7A current draw at the tail. Will there be any improvement with the new boards?

    Which 26650 cells?

    Hi, I just bought a 26650 host and I'm planning to use a 5.6A drop-in in it. Now I got two choices of batteries. 4000mAh IMR from lighthound or the new 4Sevens protected 26650 with 3900mAh.

    IR thermometer misleading numbers?
