    UV LED's for sterilization???

    Wow, I posted this question 2 years ago so I am surprised to hear a response. It is amazing how much technology has advanced in the world of LED. I will have to study everyone's responses as I am still interested in this UV Led. Thanks all and let's keep the discussion going!

    Re: P60 XPG modules in warm, neutral, cool white/ SST-50 -90 P60 dropin Modules (part Tried reading through the hundreds of post about these dropins so I'll just ask. :thinking: Is there a SST 50 or XPG-R5 that puts out a very warm, almost incandescent tint light? Should I be using the AW...

    Bear defense backpacking light

    Horn sounds good. No thoughts on the Bear Mace?...is it just a gimmick? You all think a bright flashlight would help?

    Bear defense backpacking light

    I'd highly doubt a flashlight is going to help you much if a bear is in a bad enough mood to attack. IMHO, I don't know if there's much you can do at all to stop a charging bear...they can run in very quick bursts on flat ground and uphill, climb trees, don't fear water, etc. I've shined a...

    Sold/Expired (WTB) WANT TO BUY: SST-50 and XPG drop-ins and cheap 18650 hosts.

    Looking to buy some decent SST-50 and/or XPG drop in modules. Would like a Nailbender running multimode (preferably 3 mode) but open to other setups. Would also be open to other types of builds and LED's...like XRE, P7, MCE...so long as they are being run hard. I'm tired of DX/KD dropins and...

    Solarforce L2 / L2P forward clicky.

    Did you get the Romisen RC-G2 or the RC-F4 forward switch from ShiningBeam? I'm assuming the RC-G2 version since you mentioned you got it for less than $2.00. Any idea what type of current draw this thing can take?...meaning, do you think it can handle an SST-50 or MCE dropin? :sssh: Also...

    Ultrafire C3 SS now not cree XP-E Q5 but XR-C P4 (maybe)...

    I've never modded the emitter before but is it as simple as resoldering the two leads on the led board? If so, I may try it. thanks guys

    Spiderfire X-07 Stainless Steel P60 Host????

    Unfortunately, I read that the solarforce flat bezel doesn't fit. Strange as I would assume they are all the same size? Someone mentioned that Surefire bezel may fit but that's not certain.

    Spiderfire X-07 Stainless Steel P60 Host????

    Thanks for the great response. Now that I think of it, I alos have a 2 mode DX light and it does take a few pushes to turn the light off. In fact, I often forget that it's on a lower mode and shove it back into my pocket until I feel the heat :huh:. In any case, I'm interested in buying one of...

    Ultrafire C3 SS now not cree XP-E Q5 but XR-C P4 (maybe)...

    Hmmm...interesting post. I am bummed by the latest batch of SS C3's lately as well. Reminds me of the venerable and original black C3's that were great lights until they started cutting corners on the circuit boards. Both these lights were favorites of mine and I really should have bought more...

    Spiderfire X-07 Stainless Steel P60 Host????

    That's what I would think but a reviewer on DX claimed that he tried multiple switches in the tailcap and none fit :confused:. The reviewer said he put a single mode dropin in a 2-mode Spiderfire and effectively got a two mode light due to the tailcap. What I would like to know is how a 3 mode...

    Does anyone own the Spiderfire X-07 Stainless Steel P60 host that's currently being sold on DX as Spicerfire...SKU 23286??? I like stainless steel lights cuz they're damn near indestructible but just wanted to get some more info before I take...

    UV LED's for sterilization???

    Exactly...and a chance to do something good. It's unfortunate that one of the leading causes of death in many developing nations is poor water. It's literally like drinking poison.

    UV LED's for sterilization???

    Hey DrMaxx...you hit the nail on the head. That's kind of along the lines I was thinking but the technology is just not ready as far as LED's go. For those of you recommending Steripen...I'll be getting one for personal use but I had an industrial application in mind when first initiating the...

    UV LED's for sterilization???

    Hi all, I just got off the phone with SSC, Nichia, and Cree. Apparently, Cree has decided not to make anymore UV dies from what I am hearing. They've pushed it back for one year but it doesn't seem likely that they'll be carrying that product anymore (but don't quote me on it). In any...

    UV LED's for sterilization???

    I looked around and found a company producing UV LEDS in the 390-405nm range. Are these too far off from 260nm to be effective in sterilization. thanks again!

    UV LED's for sterilization???

    Thanks for the great info Andrew. The light that I'm after doesn't necessarily need to be high output. It will only be about a cup or so of liquid that I'd like to disinfect so I'm hoping that maybe 1 or 2 leds would work in such a small volume. You brought up an interesting point that I...

    UV LED's for sterilization???

    :sigh: Yeah, yeah...whateva...I never said I knew anything about this stuff. I'm a NOOB :naughty:. Go ahead and take your best shots :poke:and get it off your chest. However, I do have a specific application I'd like to experiment with and I need your help. When you say expensive, just...
