Thread: Ultrafire C2 SSC P7 mod (with beamshots)

  1. #1

    Default Ultrafire C2 SSC P7 mod (with beamshots)



    My modding skill is quite low, so workmanship is pretty inferior to other mods. But it works The LED is direct driven from 18650 battery. Runtime is about 45 minutes with Trustfire 2500 and the flashlight gets hot pretty quickly.




    I had to raise original reflector about 1mm. Now the beam is absolutely perfect, very smooth without any donut holes or artifacts. Hotspot is very wide and spill is bright.



    In comparison with DBS it doesn't throw very far, but it lights up very wide area and as you can see it is brighter than Trailtech 13W HID.

    It is just modded original heatsink.

    It looks like the C2 makes for a great host for the P7. I really like my HAIII C2 but I've been fighting the urge to leave it alone. The problem is that I don't really use it as it is. I think if I do the P7 swap I will use it much more often.

    What can I say...I'm sold.

    Looks good

    How did you isolate the base of the LED?

    LED is glued with Arctic Alumina Adhesive, so it is electrically isolated.

    So you didn't push it down hard? It's jsut sitting on top of the AA? I've found using AA if you push the LED hard down onto the heatsink, you can create an electrical link from the slug to the heatsink.

    I applied a thin layer of AAA on slug first and after 30 minutes I applied a thick layer on heatsink and attached the LED.

    Nice... what value resistor did you use?
    Does the color-tint or beam change as the light heats up?

    The LED is direct driven from 18650 battery without any resistor. I didn't notice any tint shift after it heats up.

    Good luck making that fit when it has no battery contact on it.

    I used a tri-flupic in mine, all three channels in parallel.

    How much current does the tri-flupic give the LED on high?

    Anyone know where to buy these optics? http://www.sekonix.com/modules/catal...P7-CL_spec.pdf

    With that collimating lens it will be possible to change this light from flood monster to throw monster

    so you did the run test for full 45 min and no heat problem?

    man my hands getting itch too

    Just wondering if that board from KD fit in C2

    I had to use 80mm fan during runtime test, in normal conditions it gets hot really quickly I also tested it as a bike light and there were no problems with heat. In fact it didn't even heat up.

    Thank you for the link, but I can't find optics for P7 there. You need optic specifically designed for P7, it is not possible to use optic for luxeon or other LED.

    If you want to see more beamshots and comparison with many other lights, just check my site. Outdoor beamshots, indoor beamshots.

    Hi,
    Have you had a run with this using it as a bike light.

    If so, how was it on the trail; and how was the battery life, I am very interested in an insanely bright LED bike light and this and StefanFS's A8 look like the goods.

    Just trying to pick a suitable host and setup without wasting too much money initially.

    Cheers

    Yes I tested it on a bike and it is really bright, theoretically it should be as bright as Lupine Wilma But the runtime is only 40-45 minutes, so you will need an external battery pack for longer runtime.

    Was it bright enough to make you start grinning? What bin did you get?

    I have CSXPI from litemania. Yes I had to grin, because this is the brightest LED light I have so far

    I just got my emitter today and installed it into my C2.

    What can I say but Holy s#!t this thing is bright !!!

    It is like holding a car headlight in your hand.

    I plan on setting up another C2 the same and then using the setup StefanFS did on his Tiablo A8 and driving them at 2.4a regulated rather than direct drive for a bike light setup.

    Hey - 1600ish lumens for approx $120 as opposed to a bike light that pushes 1400 lumens for about $1300. LOVE this new LED technology !!!

    Cheers
