    I think Peter has done LOADS!! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] The Arc holds up pretty well under the increased load. Yet to smell any smoking bits, but I'll bet Craig will find a way [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    Looks good, hehe. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Nice and bright!

    I'll try it once I get some N cells.

    Besides, I can't do it yet anyway. I am working on a trade for my LS. I don't think they want a burned up LS. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Ok, I finally found my stash of N cells. What did you use as a stubby dummy cell to make up the extra space inside the barrel? A washer of some kind?

    I can't find my roll of foil. The last time I used some was to make a lampshade, and the roll disappeared sometime afterward.
    Guess that means I sh*tcan a lampshade, eh?

    Ok, so I did that. It's brighter, but it's not a real major milestone increase.
    Relative brightness 1073 on a 123 cell, 1105 on 2 AA cells, and 1184 on 3 "N" cells. My photometer ate it, so I can't provide any real measurements in mcd or candelas. Only these relative total flux measurements.

    You could use a long spring out of another flashlight & drop it into the 2AA battery tube.

    What do you mean? It's 5:17am here! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] I work nights, and I'm off tonight so I keep the same schedule on the weekends.

    This same guy was selling Photons for $.99 cents each plus $3.50 shipping, well, the toilet was something else he was selling. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
