Thread: If CPF had an otherwise unavailable incan bulb manufactured, what would it be?

    Default If CPF had an otherwise unavailable incan bulb manufactured, what would it be?

    Hey friends;

    So we were in the other thread and the topic of getting a run of bulbs made came up. I felt it could use a thread.

    So, CPF... what do you think? What would it be?

    We'd probably stick to an existing base, right? What base? What voltage? How long is the glass?

    What incan would be great, but doesn't exist?

    Difficulty mode: vehicular application is off-topic.

    With the nudge from Leon2245, Lumensfactory was kind enough to make up four replacement bulbs for single-cell (3v) Surefire 3P's for me. Very nicely done, running one in my cut down G2 as we speak. Whatever you decide, it's well worth an email to Mark if you want a "stock replacement" type bulb made. =)

    Maybe you're thinking about JS' ring-potted Welch-Allyn lamps, specifically for TigerLights.

    NSN TL or the curvy thing?

    Somebody here, I thought it was 325Addict but it looks like I was incorrect, had a custom run of low-current 7.4V Incan P60 LA's produced (i.e. lower output than P90's).
    I thought it was a pretty good idea, they garnered quite a bit of conversation and had a good run.
