    Legend LX Needs Modding

    Legend LX uses CR123A Lithium 3 Volt x 2. Lithium AAs are 1.83 volts each and work with most AA powered devices. Both are Lithium, but, different.

    Need advise for 2D [email protected] led mod

    He said this is for the kids tent and such, plus longevity, not lightsaber-ness. I say go with a Versalux PR-2 LED bulb from I have one in my 2D Mag, and it is very bright, tight focus and amazing throw (thank the Mag reflector for that). The kids can play with it all they...

    Fed up with the kroll

    I have 5 Krolls and all are perfect. One tsp-123 caused the light to flicker, so I unscrewed the Kroll and there was a manmade fiber (garment or carpet) in there. Removed it with tweezers, and it is perfect. Unfortunately, all of my Krolls are in Arc LS powerpacks, so I can't send you one. I...

    Hmmm, silly idea for a hurricane light.

    Great things, sometimes grow from silly ideas.

    Inretech 2xAA doesn't like NiMH???

    Re: Inretech 2xAA doesn\'t like NiMH??? The inretech, like the CMG Reactor (2AA), is designed to have optimal brightness and runtime on a pair of Lithium AAs. About 25 hours of light per pair. Both are Direct Drive.

    mag 1aa?

    It's ALIVE!!!!!! You done it. You know, that would get decent runtime with a solitaire bulb. I am interested in seeing how the MM does in that. I am also curious how the MM would do with a single NiMH.

    Suggestions for these? *beamshots added*

    Re: Suggestions for these? Uh huh, local: Mr. Bulk! You be on that Bra's good side: no pakalolo (he with HPD). Those 2D Mags could take a Versalux PR-2 LED bulb. I actually perceive it as brighter than my Arc LSH-S. Hard to believe, I know, but that is what my eyeballs tell me. Versalux PR-2...

    Hmm... What to do to my ARC LS Second

    Don't do anything to it!!!!!! It is way to good to modify. Modding an Arc LS is Sacralidge around here.

    ARC LS high vs low dome? any LS side emitter mods?

    Re: ARC LS high vs low dome? any LS side emitter m High dome for throw. Low dome for more of a flood (still way better throw than standard 5mm LEDs). Side emitter is designed for use with a reflector and not NX01 or NX05 optics.

    LED Bulb Request (Custom)

    Illuminated; Note 1: The bulbs AB made are resistored so they can be used with 3 Lithium AAs in series. These custom bulbs are single LED for Petzl 4.5 volt - E10 base. Note 2: I mentioned what AB can do, as he offered such to me, in our PM discussion. I prefer to use the Versalux PR-2 bulbs...

    LED Bulb Request (Custom)

    Since I haven't gone through the mods forum in a while, I just saw this. The ones AB built work just fine. I bought my Mega Belt brand New. So I paid full price for it. The one I got, came with the halogen (battery hog) bulb installed. At the moment, I am using a Zoom Adapter (Zoom that comes...

    Right Angle Mini-Lantern

    I would imagine that at least one person at Nichia Corporation keeps an eye on this particular forum in CPF. The extremely creative Don strikes again: turns out a useful item from an engineering sample!

    Can USB power a LS?

    I don't think so, but, I don't know the USB power specs.

    9200mcd S-ranked Nicias in the PT Matrix

    It might be useful, if you got a second Matrix Module and leave it as is. While not a light meter, it would still serve the function of comparison. I know they aren't cheap (not in my budget). As I write this, I am using my Solo/Matrix. It is my favorite for close in stuff. Besides, a 2nd unit...

    9200mcd S-ranked Nicias in the PT Matrix

    I use my Matrix Module for sitting at my computer keyboard and that, when I don't want the bright overhead lights on. Back in 1998, when I had moved to Columbus, Ohio, I bought this headlamp at the Walking Company. It turned out to be a rebranded PT Solo. When I learned of the matrix module for...

    9200mcd S-ranked Nicias in the PT Matrix

    John; Thanks for the info on this. I had been wondering the same thing, as I have a Matrix Module myself.

    Re: Regulated Headlight for rechargeables ->pix Great job, Slick! My solution to using an LS for a headlamp, was to buy an Arc LS headlamp mod from Silviron. I got the 4AA series/parallel version for doubled runtimes (14 hours w/lithium AAs). Given my total lack of shop skills, and almost...
