    Default MiniMag1AA/2AA Tri-XPE



    MiniMag 1x14500 /2x14500 Tri-XPE

    - Customized MiniMaglite 1AA/2AA
    - Mineral glass lens
    - Carlo 20mm triple optics
    - Cree triple XPE-2 R3 20mm round pcb
    - Copper custom made removable light engine
    - Constant current BadBoy500 driver
    - Brass battery contact

    LEDs are wired in series in other words each XP-E gets 500mA.
    The 2AA runs on 2x 14500, 2AA NiMH and 2AA Alkaline. The 1AA only runs on 1x 14500.
    Tighten the head turns the light on. Loosen the head turns it off.

    The nice thing is that (the 2AA) still looks like a stock MiniMaglite.



    I love copper, especially for heatsinks.

    It is very reliable too because there is no switch inside.

    Very clean! Single mode? How much current are you pushing it at?

    Nice job!

    It is not a simple drop-in. The head has to be bored and I use a different spring in the tailcap.

    I'm using a BB500 driver, this means single mode, 500mA. In total this makes output is about 10V x 500mA = 5W.
    Pushing the LED's harder is of course possible but then the head will get (too?) hot and runtime will be less.
    At 500mA and even 400mA this makes a very useful light.
