great build, but little throw and little output.

The UDW Tripple Quad rechargable

here is my UDW tripple quad.
its 4 3w Luxeons in a Radioshack 4AA holder, with quad duel position switches, and quad lens styles.
each switch controls each light
they all have a dim position
the flood has a ultra dim position for long life

OK, that light is just weird. Anybody else out there with flashlights? If you have a digital camera and a flashlight collection, let us take a look.

My three Luxeon V lights:

Top to bottom - PocketMate-V custom (not to be confused with the actual PMW build by Hotbeam), U2 Digital Ultra, L4 LumaMax.

Bezel shot of all the lights.

Mag2HID, business end.

$25 large yellow spotlight (currently waiting for a big beefy 7AH 12V SLA when I have time)

Too many of the little things running around here, yes I kept a few dozen for myself:

Incandescent Surefires and small LEDs:

(I no longer have the E2e/L4+MN03 as shown, it's now an E2e-SG)

I should take an updated photo of the collection, maybe when I have time.

Re: time to show off our lights

Which probably explains where the avatar picture came from /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The top picture of the three Luxeon V lights effectively represents my variable-power light collection as well, with the exception of the L4. The PMV is adjustable using the dimmer pot (visible above its switch in the picture), the U2 is adjustable using the selector ring. If I do decide to get a two-stage McE2S for the L4, it would become one as well.

The U2 solves a lot of my problems and is possibly the most efficient light I own. 6 lumens for 40+ hours (almost 2 whole days of continuous runtime), 100+ lumens for those days where I absolutely need that shield of light, and everything in between. Level 5 is useful to double battery life without sacrificing that much brightness, level 4 doubles it again while still producing more than adequate light, level 3 is equivalent to a KL1 (the U2's backup) and level 2 is for the times I need more than level 1.

It's EDC'able (for me) and bezel down was the way it was MEANT to be.

Highly recommended, despite the price tag. The U2 literally ended my collection of practical lights and got me started on the impractical 500+ lumen beasts. Granted the price is a high barrier to entry, but I'm glad I decided not to compromise.

Yes, U2 is my favorite light as well.
