    Default Terralux TLE-100

    Does anyone have information on the TLE-100 Maxcharger3 which is now on the Terraluxbiz website?

    It is advertised as a replacement LED for the Mag rechargeable system. Has regulated circuitry and claims 100 lumens with a 6 hour run time.

    Wondering if anyone owns one and could confirm the brightness and run time. Also what is the beam like......smooth and even spot, or jagged comet tail etc...

    This must be a very new product, since google search turned up nothing.......
    not even on Terralux's website. I think I would spend the $34.95 if it passes muster. Even tho, hmmmm, 100 lumens is not much compared to the OEM incandescent, but I like that run time.

    I don't know, that "shock mount" looks like it'd provide a lot of heat isolation/trapping inside the module

    I'm glad to see it uses a Fraen LP collimator, it produces a nice smooth beam.

    I would figure you could put vents/slots/holes in the mount to increase the cooling...

    I'm sure they have done testing to make sure it wouldn't overheat.

    Yes, these are brand new and we only got our first samples last week. They've been working on it since I was there last summer. The issue was how easily it fell out when dropped, hence the foam doughnuts. Heat hasn't been an issue and the run times are legit according to our tests. We sell a ton of the NiCAD replacement bulbs for the rechargeable Mags, more than any other bulb by far, they only last an hour or so at best & break when dropped. Just for the savings in battery costs and regular bulb replacements they are worth it in my opinion. We make LED replacements using those same Fraen lenses, good colimated beam, it's a 10 degree, narrow they are using, info here fyi: http://www.fraensrl.com/images/FSG_L..._Datasheet.pdf

    Yes! I have a question though. Is that a rubber or foam surround?

    It looks and feels like black foam. Also even when the TLE-100 is on for a long time it does not heat up very much at all.
