    New LED MiniMag, modified to use a Nite Ize tail cap switch

    I read the threads on the new MiniMaglite LED flashlight, and decided to go and see if the local Wally's World in Cottage Grove carried them. Yes, they had the 2AA, 3AA LED Mini-Mags, and also the 2D Mag. Didn't want the 2D Mag as I know the LED is not sinked properly. Anyway, I purchased the...

    Stacking Micropucks, driving a 3W at 620mA

    I was told it could not be done. I was told it could be done. So I had to try it. I ran two Micropucks in parallel, powering a 3W Luxeon Star. Initial test: I hooked up the two Micropucks in parallel, powered from two Duracell alkaline D cells, powering one 3W Luxeon Star. Initial current is...

    Custom Made Headlamp

    As a favor to a fellow CPF member, I made a custom headlamp for him. Here's a few pics: I call it "DW-1" It uses a 1W Luxeon Star emitter, with a Fraen LP narrow beam. I put a Micropuck boost circuit into the light, so any type of batteries will work, as long as the voltage stays at or...

    Turning a Spyder into a 72 Lumen Flame Thrower

    Recently, I saw a fellow CPF member's Dorcy Spyder flashlight, converted to use a Luxeon Star. I dedided I had to have one. Of course, I couldn't buy one, I had to make it. I decided to show a few pics of how I am doing it, in case a few other CPF people might want to try it. This light will not...

Give or take a few thousanths of an inch. Use a Luxeon Star emitter on a plate of aluminum. Place the Fraen LP on the emitter, and place...

    12,720 lux Cyan 5W *ag*ite 2D Mod

    Just modified a 2D Maglite for a CPF member. I put in a cyan 5W, and am using the reflector. I put in two of the sample 3-To-D holders, and 6 new AA alkalines. This CPF member wanted to break the 10,000 lux barrier, so instructed me to put in less resistance. I put in a 5 watt .5 ohm resistor (I...

    How to put a Luxeon Star into a Maglite

    I have had many requests on instructions on how to put a Luxeon Star into a Maglite. Of course, there is more than one way, or my way. This is how to do it using the kits I sell. Of course, you can make some of the parts yourself if you are able to. Here's the link to a web page (under...

    Pocket Zorch II / StunLux

    Blaster II 1W @ 4,600 lux

    I know it's hard to believe, but I have a Blaster II here, which I took a lux reading at 4,600 lux, at one meter. It's brighter than a 5W I have. I've been measuring around 2,500 on most of the 1W Blaster II's. This one seemed a bit brighter than the rest, and when I took the reading, I was...
