    I would guess 2-3 mm. It's easy to figure out because you can see how much the LE is sticking out the back end of the head to determine how much is left to remove.

    Thanks Don! Is the beam pattern okay in an A19 head?

    It's a very tight spot.

    Hmmm. I may put some diffusion film in if I get this setup. Maybe widening the spot would be useful. I feel a mule may be too diffuse for norland work etc.

    I've been wanting a 365nm light for quite sometime to locate scorpions on our AZ reptile photo shoots. I also would like it to work well in hotel rooms to justify always bringing a sleeping bag. What current set up would your recommend?

    From my current offerings I think the SunDrop head would be the most appropriate choice given you applications. It offers a nice middle ground between full flood (Mule) and tight concentrated spot (Haiku).

    Has anyone ever tried this UV LE in a Makai head? Just wondering.

    I just put a UV LE in a Makai head and checked it out. You get a very tight and intense pencil beam of UV light.

    LarsB,
    Thanks for posting that link! Interesting and informative.

    Thanks for running the test does it also have any amount of spill like other emitters or is it solely the beam you described?

    It does have spill but it's spot is so much brighter relative to it.

    Hi Don,
    Can you put the uv led on the aa converter?
    Thanks

    Hi Dave A,
    Yes I can use the AA converter. the max current will be 300 mA which will still give you a good amount of UV light. I recently purchased some more of these UV LED's and they have improved on the output; 455 -495 mW at 500 mA. So even at 300 mA these new LED's could be putting out as much or more UV than the older LED's did at 500 mA.

    Would the Haiku be best for Norland curing? I also want the Haiku for looking for creatures In the vast empty openness, and complete desolation of the desert, I think I will skip the Hotel rooms....

    Say, if we get busted for something, could we use them in jail? Just to check how clean the authorities keep things?

    President GW Bush could have used one of these in the early days of his administration! Giving the OO a good sweep. Hey! I am Presidential historian, why would I not think of that? (With apologies to my friend President Clinton).

    I'm, looking for a decent UV light for ship/container, aircraft inspections. We have had a rash of invasive species here on our island and a good reliable UV light might well be a great tool for inspections. Oftentimes we have only two officers to a ship, so I am looking for something easily carried on my duty belt, long floody throw, most ship holds are lit so I would have to have something with a bit of power. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    I think the UV Haiku might give you the preferred beamshape for your intended usage.

    If the areas are lit, generally, the uv will have very little range, as surrounding surface brightness will tend to mask the appearance of fluorescence.

    If you can turn the lights out for the uv inspection, it will work MUCH better. When I do uv inspection, I kill the other lights if possible.

    If there's no switch etc...you can mask the light sources to block their light and make areas dark enough.

    HOW dark will be dark enough, for you...will be something you'll get a feel for.

    This advice is a year late, but still: I put my UV light engine into a Sundrop XR-U, for a little more focus but not a spot beam like the Haiku would produce.

    I agree. You can just put a Surefire diffusion lense on the head of the Haiku when you need a softer beam.

    Don's UV light engines cure Norland so fast it gets hot. I had to use a lower setting to avoid causing bubbles in the Norland.

    Depends what the diffusion lens is made of though, whether it will block the UV.

    Hi McGizmo

    Are these still for sale?

    Do you make lights on requests, or do you only sell the lights on your list? http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...-Ordering-Info

    I'm searching for a uv-flashlight to use when i search for amber by the sea. Amber is florescent under uv-light at wavelengths from 320-365. Preferable with the LED Engin LZ1.

    My budget is around 250 usd / 220 euro

    Cheers from Denmark :-)

    Hi,
    I do still offer these but unfortunately the only hosts I offer are titanium and beyond your budget. It is possible that you might find a viable host for the UV light engine in the B/S/T forum like an older aluminum Aleph Mule or there could be some other offerings out there I am unaware of that could use my UV Light Engine.

    I think the Sandwich Shoppe still has Aleph heads. You may be able to cobble one of Don's UV LEs with some older Aleph parts and maybe some Surefire E-series parts. Legos are fun!

    I've been searching the forum, but haven't been able to find it. The closest I could find was vinhguyen54 asking witch flashlights we would like to see modded.

    Does anyone build flashlights on request?

    I just found this thread... I have a Canon camera body that was modded by LifePixel that is a full spectrum body. I can use band pass filters and work in low IR upto about 975nm and well down into the UV range. I love to work in IR with landscapes but would really like to explore UV and could use an illumination device for macro to near macro work. I would love to find a true 365nm dropin that did not break the bank!
