Aleph experts? Whats the closest Aleph in size to the E1e and the Arc 4? (My EDC's) Any pics? I'm not a fan of big lights, but I'm willing to take the plunge if I can get an Aleph in this range. Do the Aleph's carry big? What's the max amount of brightness out of an 1X123 on the Aleph system? Anyone hit near 60-ish?

Thanks,

Brian

I have an Aleph2 head with a 1x123 and a McE2s on it. This set up is about 1/4" longer than an E1e, and the ARC 4 I think if you got the FT tailcap it would probably be around the same length. I don't have one to compare to(yet).
As for the being bright that would be up to what LE you put into it.
Hope this helps some.

You can also try an Aleph 1 or Aleph 2 head on a vital gear FB1 body. Makes for a very nice, compact light, but doesn't have the two stage of the McE2S.

Had the Arc4+, and IIRC, the NG500 LE with a Lux III emitter and Aleph 2 head puts out a nicer beam and more light. Using a SF clickie tail on this setup makes for a nice package, though you give up the 2 stage capabilities. If you go 2 stage, 10 ohms seems like a nice resistor level for low.

I was wondering if the Vital Gear body (1 cell) was significantly smaller than the original Aleph2 body. Could it be possible to post a pic of the 2 side by side?

Interesting. So with a Flat TC it would be close in length to a Arc 4 / E1e...

Anyone know if the Stock E1e/Balrog bodies are shorter than the stock Aleph 1X123 tube?

A single 123A can drive the Lux III LED at 750ma and the R123A Li-on can drive the Lux III at 1000 ma, about 70 lumen.
