    Default SOLD: Yard Sweeper: Mag 2C Tri MCE Copper Sink >2000 lumens

    If you wanted something that could triple the power of a Room sweeper type of P7/MCE light & yet want in a compact size.: Here is your chance for the compact Mag 2C Yard Sweeper

    Built on Brand new Gun Metal Color Mag 2C is one of my most practical Power mag Cs, over 2000 luemns on compact mag C, yet long run time (Relatively speaking, 5000mAH C-ion, 4.5AM pull = over 1hr, if your C-lion is 3300mAH, then about 45min).

    Tri MCE were taken from XTAR Howitzer, these are pure white tint top bin MCES configured in 2S2P. They are top bins, where Big C has measured over 1500 OTF lumens on the XTAR.

    I put these MCEs into Mag C, Direct Drive with 2x C-lions, added a small power resistor (0.22Ohm) to limit the Max current to about 4.5 Amp with freshly charged battery.

    The light is driven slightly harder than the factory Howitzer, Combined with Beefy Copper heat sink, this light is actually brighter than Howitzer which is almost 4 times the MagC size by volume!

    AT 4.5 AMP 2S2P, each die is seeing ~800mA, and there are 12 cree dies . This is equivalent of driving each MCE (4P) to 3AMP, slightly over the 2.8A spec.

    During my test, I have driven it to 5.5 AMP max seeing no issues on the copper sink before adding resistor to limit it to 4.5 Amp for reliability & longer Run time.


    Asking for $195

    Shipping to USA only. I accept two payment options:
    PP gift/money owned option: Shipping & insurance: add $9.
    Payment goods: PP fee/Insurance & shipping, add additional $14

    Summary of the Specs:


    Spec:

    • Brand New Mag 2C in Titanium Grey/Gun Metal color
    • Powered by 2x C sized Li-ion
    • TRI MCE XTar Howitzer, 2S2P (Pure White tint)
    • Beefy Copper Heat sink
    • Direct Driver with power resistor limit current to 4.6A
    • LED current ! 800mA per die to each of the 12 dies.
    • Estimated >2000 LED Lumens or >1600 OTF lumens
    • Expected to beat factory XTAR Howitzer which is 4 times bigger
    • Carbon Fiber Tri Centering Ring/Focus shim
    • Perfect beam, thanks to the nice OP tri reflector & CF shim
    • This will blow away just about any thing else on Mag2C
    • This will give you ~ 1 hour Run time
    • Massive amount of flood & it also throw very well!
    • Lite up the the whole backyard, thus the name Yard Sweeper!
    • How spot has very soft edge, smooth transition to spill, unlike sharp & harsh edge like SST-90 on Rebel SMO

    Battery Options:

    I left the battery tube stock, but there are more than one options:




    • 2x AW old protected C-lion with a an AW C-lion 10mm cell extender
    • 2x18650 IMR 18650 with recessed spring mod (Do not do spring resistance mod, make sure AMP pull is <5.5A, if over 5.5V, let the cell sit overnight)

    Cautions:
    Do not Run Other 18650, then can not handle 4.5Amp pull!
    Do not attempt to unscrew the head, the led are hardwired to the power resistor which is soldered to the
    switch, unscrew the head may risk of breaking the wires.

    Thanks.

    I forgot to mention that the light has a UCL glass on it with a chip out side of the reflector, if buyer rather want stock lens instead, just let me know.

    I Just tested 2x IMR 18650 4.15v pulls 5.5A. Def. should let it rest overnight, if use the IMR fresh off charger.

    you build THE BEST lights
    If and when the the big dookie hits the fan, and global chaos ensues, i want a couple of quality AA lights within reach.
