    Default Introducing D-Pill

    First and foremost I have to thank the following people:
    - haveblue for bringing MicroMag to life [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/buttrock.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bowdown.gif[/img]
    - dat2zip for donating the MM rev1 board [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
    - PhotonFanatic for the lovely Lux3T TY0L [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink2.gif[/img]

    OK. A picture is worth a thousand word so I have 9000 words for you guys, plus some ...









    Thanks to ImageShack for Free Image Hosting, even though their thumbnail doesn't work sometime.

    === Light Specs ===
    FF2 CR2 - NG500 & turndown NX05
    FF2 123 - BB750 & turndown NX05
    MicroMag - D-Pill & NX05
    MiniMag - BB500 & NX05

    === Construction Matterial ===
    1x shorted|blank MM converter board - from Shop
    2x connection pins - from Shop
    1x emitter board - from Shop
    1x Luxeon III TY0L - from PhotonPhanatic

    This little baby runs on 750mAh 14500 Li-Ion so it's DD. You think it's crazy, maybe, maybe not. Since my 14500 is rated for 750mAh it's not that much current it's delivering. Fresh off the charger this thing is pulling 600mA and it drops down to 500mA after 15 minutes. My D-Pill #1 have went thru 5 battery cycle and it's still like a virgin. One weird thing I notice is this thing is even cooler than my NG500 to the touch after running for 5 minutes during the shootout. Can some of the electronic wizard help explains this.

    Runtime chart, temperature, and Lux reading will be posted once I borrowed CroMagnet's meter.
    Visually this thing is far brighter & whiter than most of my LuxIII lights. At 500mA the D-Pill is still brighter than my BB750 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon3.gif[/img]

    I had some beamshots vs Simba, ARC4+, and Aleph but my 1G CF card was lost/stolen when I brought it to work today trying to post [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon8.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

    One of the picture was pretty funny, I had all these light spread out so my "toddler" son would choose one. Guess what he choose Simba over all the others [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yellowlaugh.gif[/img]

    OK the plus some part ...
    The first one to guess what the "D" means will get a free D-Pill sent to their door, no matter where you are. Yes, that includes Timbuktu [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    The hint is the original name is in a foreign language.
    As an alternate if you guess what my son Andrew's birthday is you get it too.
    If no one guess it right by Feb 05, 2005 it will go to the Bay Area Get-Together Q1-2005 raffle.
    * Limit one guess per person per day. And only answers posted will count.
    GAME OVER - WINNER = ssteven1

    I'm glad the MicroMag got put to a good use. Small and cute, huh? I think the Micro is a common little light around cpf now. S'OK...I still think they are special and I carry one everyday. Shoot, you've inspired me to make another drop-in for a Micro. Have fun!

    watt4, deutsche [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crackup.gif[/img] but NO
    beam_me_up , Dutch Pill -> NO
    chimo, "D" is in a foreign language so NO
    jaids, driver is in english it's not foreign to U or me -> NO
    Sinjz, that's thinking but NO
    pokkuhlag, what is Drol, or do you mean drool?

    Man you guys are not even close. I guess we need more hint and loosen the rules.
    Ok one guess for date and one guess for "D" meaning. Those who posted words in "English" gets another try.

    [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] Oops typo, yes it was supposed to be drool. I think I've lost since it's not foreign to you [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img], I didn't notice it till Hallis said his posts weren't foreign words so it didn't count.

    My initial answers submitted via PM were:

    D = Dinh = Dinh Pill

    or

    D = The Chinese word "Dung" for Light = as in "Light Pill"
