wquiles,

I'm suspecting my 1185 setup to be questionable, after reading so much about the mag85, i bought myself a MC for the purpose of transforming it to a MC85. When I got the bulbs (1185), and the first time I fired it up, I was like...umm..is that all this thing can do.

I using waion 9AA to D adapter, bulbs from flashlightlens, battery are Sanyo 2100mA with some Sonys & GP. My H3 bulb at 6V is brighter and put out more light than my MC85.

Xenon,

I tried it again tonight, but not only with the P90 but also with the brighter P91, and still no contest - the MC85 with LDF is still MUCH brighter.

Maybe the battery adapters from waion have too much resistance to really drive the 1185?
