I don't believe that you can buy them from the shopp but I as many others have one. It's all about the light engine and not the head itself. I've built up a lux5 with a downboy 750 that i use primarily in my aleph3 head but it sees some fun time in other aleph heads as well. I'm sure if you really want one someone would build you one.

just ask the Aleph builders if they have a LuxV ready to go, the rest is just to determine your desired configuration.

I really like a BadBoy500 LuxV as it runs on 1x123 and 2x123 quite well, albeit not in regulation on 1x123.

From what I understand the Lux V's heat up too hot to hold after a few minutes. Is this true?

I have two Lux V's.Both are BB500's.I use them in all three Aleph heads.I have never had a problem with heat.The 500ma is a great chose.You get good brightness and run time with out alot heat.

Dito to David. All depends onthe drive current.
If I'd put my DB917 LuxV in an Aleph2 head I'll have a problem, but with a BB500 in an Aleph1 ... no problemo whatsoever.

I have a VXOS Lux V that I'm running in an Aleph III head at 750mA. I don't have any heat problems with it at all, although a 500mA bias is probably more practical. I like the 500mA bias for the reasons stated by bernie.
