So running the light in direct drive using 2xalkalines or 2xNiMH looks like there should be no heat issue. Of course, output is also correspondingly lower. Relative luminous flux at 3V/150mA drive current is about 50% or around 50 lumens for the Q5. Not bad for a quick and dirty AA Mini Mag direct drive build.


Great information, thanks a lot.

You need to find a picture host :
Upload the picture to the host
then copy and paste the code to your post here on CPF
Ive used up my bandwidth for the month , so im in the slow lane ..

Just do a yahoo search for picture hosts ..

I received the light tonight and I really enjoy it. I like the optic you put in it, Its created the biggest hotspot I have ever seen. Where did you get them? Also what kind of reflector was used, it does not look like the stock mag reflector.

Once again thanks for the light!
