    Default a few lights to compare to

    POST MOVED TO HOMEMADE & MODIFIED LIGHTS
    Hi,
    sooner or later I will be creating custom flashlight prototypes, I have one important question for the forum:

    To which light should I compare my creations to?

    - single 5mm led
    - multiple 5 led
    - luxeon 1, 3 & 5

    and regarding size?

    Please consider the following, if 2 lights share the same output tell me the less expensive one.

    is this really needed or a simple Meterman LM631 mcd output is enough?

    what is enough? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    big thanks

    I'd say it depends on the specification of your lights.

    It would probably be a good idea to compare lights of a similar design so if you make a single LEd light compare it to a well known single LED light etc. etc.
