Maglite has accessory kits that have a red, blue, and clear lens. The older kits had red, blue and amber lenses. I am not sure from the picture what you mean by drop ins. I looks like just a colored lens on a Maglite LED.

In the pictures those are not drop-ins, but an irreversible modification in which wavelength specific LEDs were used

Illum, how do you know, is there a link to the original thread where these lights were displayed? I'd love to know because I'm a big fan of coloured lights.

Also, why should any emitter, no matter what the wavelength, be an irreversible mod?

In the first shot, none of the emitters seem to be glowing, but the wash of colour in the reflector area is of the colour of the light, glow powder? Tritium?

Fantastic pictures BTW, especially the last one.

Seems to me that an MC-E RGB would work well in the Mag's relatively large reflector. Has anyone done this? I'd be interested in a drop-in (with color-mixing a definite bonus!)

backstory: pt-54 became popular because it was part of the "leftovers" of harvesting certain projectors for their new InGaN high wavelength diodes. This discovery basically brought down the consumer price of these single diodes from several thousand dollars to ~$50.

those laser nerds *were* just throwing these things away until someone decided to make a light out of them. Apparently, they didn't notice that these things were friggin awesome.... I mean, not as awesome as the beautiful, and as of yet still unknown, InGaN direct injection laser diodes, but awesome in their own, sheer output sort of way.

The builder, jayrob, recently joined here (bout time, I noticed a marked increase in his interest in incoherent non-monochromatic light builds, tsk tsk tsk ;) ), and is known at lpf for offering very intuitive all-in-one kits for building your own custom photon stick.

+1 I'm fond of multi-coloured lights as well :thumbsup:

Seems (as already mentioned) like an RGB MC-E would be the perfect solution, switching would be the biggest obstacle I'd imagine ;)
