    Default Introducing "PES2"

    Guys, I have spent numerous hours designing this.



    Yep ... just a bunch of circles.

    Anyone care to guess what it is?
    The first three to guess correctly and will get one free.


    Only three simple rules:
    1. Your guess must be posted in this thread. No PM, no email and definitely no phone calls.
    2. Only one guess per CPF member. Don't try to register multiple CPF handle. Sasha and the admins will boot all of us.
    3. You have to be "specific", you can't just say "it's a thing" that doesn't count. If it's a pheasant, you got to tell me it's a chicken, duck or turkey.

    It may or maynot have anything to do with flashlight.
    It looks like bolt pattern for a stunt kite to me

    Games winner announce when Draco pricing announce. You may change and edit your guess at anytime.

    It sure looks like battery tube with many cell size options:
    positive battery contacts for:
    1 D-size, 3 AA-cels and 4 AA-cels

    and if tube is large enough:1D, 3x18650 cels or 4x123

    Jumi: I THINK YOU'RE RIGHT!!!!! Wow good job!!! battery adapter to hold 3 or 4 cells!!
    I'm with you on this one!!

    EDIT I changed my mind!!!! I'm Not with you on this one!!

    Back to my original first repsonse. Heatsink. For 3-4 emitters. Has walls with cut outs for the 4 reflector setup. It's like a PTS/PQS v3 all in one!! Luxlunatic is right!!! I did say heatsink in my first post, but not the details... does that count!?? hah

    Looks to me like a combination PTS/PQS for emitters(you choose the application). Maybe I'm just dreaming of the D size PQS that I need !!!

    I'm with Jumi, Shaocaholica and Isaac on this, it looks like a battery tube / power pack, that accepts a wide configuration of batteries, either 1, 3, or 4 (especially with what look like 4-bored out sections).

    edit: actually it might not accept a 1-battery configuration as that middle one looks like a hole. maybe an opening for a charging plug or a positive contact maybe? =P

    Kelly: that would rock!! however I don't think you're right... But maybe that should be the next project!! I'd love selectable led color shower head at night. I shower with no lights on at night frequently. That would be cool!!!

    I do need a PQS to build a quad-true-cyan light..... I was thinking C sized light this time. 3C mag DD nimh sounds good, with a custom flu-pig for strobe/pulse/throb/etc

    It is a heatsink made to remove the need for PQS/PTS and Hotlips-style heatsinks in one :-)

    In the middle you got a little pedistal where you can put a single luxeon to use with the mag reflector,
    then you got three positions for luxeons that sits a little nearer the center than the quad ones because of then you can fit the (3*20mm?) reflectors,
    in the quad setup cutouts are made in the wall for the four reflectors...

    Am i right ?

    The new contact plate for the new Modamag battery pack, which will allow different battery setting(most likely to be AA or AAA)?

    It does look as though it's a 4xAA or 3xPila 300A/S carrier to me. Regulator circuit in it perhaps?

    I think it's a reflector mock-up for LED placements.

    Well, you all have guessed my battery holder contact plate idea(which was suggested to me by the ID of the originator, the hole in the middle, and the semi-circular cut-outs in the outer ring)...so I'm going to go with a pie-in-the-sky guess:

    This piece is the cover plate for a new type of intelligent flashlight switch--it had an up and down dimmer, and multip;le setting options controlled by differnet buttons.

    Hey, I didn't say it was a good guess!

    I'm quite sure it must be a 4 level rotary switch for selecting light levels. It is located at the tail and on the other side there will be a button. The identations will help the switch to stop at the right position so that the contact points will mate with the contact point on the circuit board. That the switch stops when it enters a level gives the switch a great feel, those of you who have a Stenlight headlamp know how nice switches like these are in use.
    Here is how the contact points on the circuit board should look like:

    i changed my guess. i think it is a thing use for charging of the batteries inside the draco.
    the circles and the hourglass shaped thing is uses to connect to the batteries. the center hole is used as a hole for the charger's plug(not sure how to explain) to go in.
