    Yes, there will be more C and D config #2s as soon as I can get hold of some more decent 5w or LIIIs.

    I'd be interested in LIII Hotlips. I've got 5 3D lights laying around unmodded.

    With a LIII direct-drive, it should run just fine off the stock batteries: simple, cheap, and durable. Great emergency/gift lights.

    Looking forward to modifying my shiny purple D mag that's already sitting in pieces in the drawer while I wait for the arctic alumina to arrive in the mail.

    I'd be interested in a hotlips D with or without a LS3. I have a spare LS3 begging for use, but you may be able to attach one better than I. Could I send you my LS3 to attach?

    The 2D I have is new with the cam reflector. Does this lend itself well to the Hotlips mod?
    Is the price still $16? And how much for one loaded with an LS3?

    Crux

    My Hotlips are here, my Hotlips are here! Yea! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif[/img]

    Unfortunately the stupid mail service must have delivered it very late, because I had the day off today and was checking the box every hour or so until nearly 4PM and had pretty much given up (the mail here usually gets delivered around noon, give or take an hour). Then I went to take the trash out at 11PM and just out of desperation I took one more look.

    So now it's too late to really build anything. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    But at least they're here! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    And they look awesome! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bowdown.gif[/img]

    So, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/twakfl.gif[/img] to the Post Office,

    and, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/buttrock.gif[/img] to Howard.

    Aloha, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink2.gif[/img] iG

    Drat! Thought I would try a quick and dirty 3 cell DD Lux3 on my old 3D Mag, but it turns out it's an older one with a larger ID. Oh well, I was planing on getting a new one for the mod anyway since my old one is seriously beat up. Would have been fun to play a bit tonight, though.

    The C size fits perfectly, but I was planing on a 5W for that, and don't have any Lux5 on hand.

    Hmmm. Wall Mart is still open, and only ten minutes away. I wonder what color 3 cells are in stock... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thinking.gif[/img]

    Yep, it's WAY old. And very thrashed. It would be a shame to put such a pretty heatsink in such an ugly body, so it's time for a new one anyway. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Now I just need to decide what color...

    Default Re: Premium Heatsinks for the Mag.

    I'm complete new comer to the CPF,(not even
    registered yet), and while I have spent several weeks
    'clicking' around reading through various
    threads/links; there is still plenty I don't
    comprehend.

    Response: Welcome to the CPF. Feel free to show yourself [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]


    1. Configuration difference #1 vs. #2, while
    recessed emitter vs. protruding? And how does this
    affect the quality of beam as you change the focus
    with a Maglite?

    Response: #1 is just the Hotlips. #2 has the emitter attached. Beam quality can be adjusted with the focusing head. It will go from a holey beam to a very hot hotspot. The Hotlips heatsink has raised pedestal meaning it can focus with different types of Luxeons, eg. HD, LD, SE. If you use a flat disk heatsink, you do not have the options. Best thing is to try it with a cut reflector and you can see the results yourself before mounting it in a flashlight body.


    2. I don't understand, other than reflector
    quality/shape of beam, and possibly the lens on the
    LED itself, why one 5w Luxeon LED will have any
    different lumens/lux output over anyother?

    Response: There are different grade Luxeons, as defined by bins which characterise the Luxeon's brightness/tint/voltage. More information on binning can be found in the forum or on the lumileds.com website. Use the search facility.


    There is a link to a supplier of the full line of
    Luxeon's including newer 3w(currenly listed white
    version out of stock) which shows that all the
    configurations of the bare Luxeon 5w are either 120
    lumens or 110 lumens(I think the side emitters are
    lower???). So why is it that the Streamlight TL-3 is
    shown as rated for only 82 lumen output. Thats a huge
    loss of output compared to raw output figure of 120
    lumens, glass or poly lens shouldn't make that big of
    a difference.

    Response: The SL lights are resistored to reduce brightness, hence increase longetivity of life.


    3. I guess I should post a few questions(not sure
    where on CPF would be best) about beam patterns. While
    I certainly like the size factor of the SL TL-3, I'm
    wondering if the quality of beam/uniformity of spread,
    when set to spot-to-flood is better with this unit or
    better with a D or C Mag? Pila 150s should fit in the
    SL TL-3, but how would runtimes compare with this to
    say a Maha D or C cell powered Mag. New Maha D-cells
    at $16ea. are rated at 11Ah. While 2 cell C size Mag
    5w Luxeon maybe poorman's version of smaller/better?
    TL-3, if you loose it/it's stolen, you'r not out
    $150-175 USD.

    Response: You have many questions here. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] You will be able to solicit a wide range of responses by posting it in the appropriate forums.... probably the Homemade and Mod or LED forum.


    I see no mention of amp draw, and voltage for these 5w
    LED's and I'm wondering if they come in different amp
    draw ratings, which could account for the different
    lumens output ratings??? So an 5w LED that has higher
    amp draw, will then have higher lumens output, but
    watts = amp x volts, means you need higher volts in
    this case. Are all of the 5w LED's rated for same
    voltage?

    I'm confused.

    Response: LEDs are current devices. To get more brightness, use more current. Check the binning information re LED voltages.


    Hotlips D size, available or 2, 3, 4 cell sizes?

    Response: Hotlips-D fits in any recent D M*gs (OADs)


    Hotlips C size, same question 2, or more cells(see
    theres that different voltage that you have not
    mentioned in the initial post.

    Response: Hotlips-C fits in any recent C M*gs (OACs). Adding a Sleeve will fit it into "older" bodies. See the first post for more details.


    Can you edit the initial post to clarify all of these
    questions? Voltage, amp draw, how many D or C cells
    these are for...and what is the difference between
    recessed/protruding?

    Response: Post your questions in the Homemade and Mod forums. Lots of knowledgeable people around.


    Can you provide link or remember which threads I can
    see beam spread shots with either your mod. or the
    TL-3 for comparision? Spot vs. Flood, can these be
    edited into your initial post(by the mods/admns???)

    Response: Please do a search in the forum. Lots of information available.


    Thanks for any and all answers you can provide,

    I'm quite keen on the D version hotlips with a white/white Lux3 attached. The mod I have in mind is a 3 cell D. Direct drive. Quick and easy mod for a newbie. I look foward to you having more LS's in stock. Count me in for one when you do.

    cheer,
