    Default Introducing .......... \



    This project have been an extremely long journey. I had made designed it out in my head back in February. However, due to timing, parts availability, and work (real) priorities, I have been pushing it back further and further.

    Yesterday, while CroMagnet was working modding his JIL Rev, I took the time trying to start and finish this project. Originally I planned to use a miniturize fan for active cooling but after there was about 2 feet of 24G wires stuff in that thing. The fan will just have to wait til I can get my hands on a small grille or fabricate my own. And I also ran out of UCL since Tony got the last one for his father's 3W-DD.

    This light is fully regulated and it's dimmable down to barely on at 0.2W (??? 10 lm ???) to max power at 27W (650 lm). This is only the third Mag2D that will get to stay at my house as a permanent resident [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. The first is a Mag2HID so guess what the second one is [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    === "Sephiroth" Specs ===
    344g | 12.2oz w/o batteries
    435g | 15.4oz with batteries
    Power consumption: 0.2 -> 27.5 Watts
    Runtime: 40 -> 200 minutes
    Max Light Output: 650 lumens

    === "Sephiroth" Parts List ===
    Spash Blue Mag2D (yes stock!)
    2x FatMan driver (latest version)
    1x dual channel analog pot
    1x nFlex driver
    1x punny momentary switch
    1x Modified PQS-D heatsink
    1x Luxeon V WX1S
    6x Luxeon III TY0H
    7x IMS SO17XA reflectors
    1x Ultra-Void len
    1x 8AA-2D battery adapter
    1x Dummy AA cell
    7x Energizer 2500mAh NiMh

    Just couple beamshots for now. Diner's calling.


    "Sephiroth" dis-assembled.


    "Sephiroth" on Low ... "Sephiroth" on High
    Canon A80 | Manual | ISO100 | Shutter 1/2000s | Aperature F5.0 | Auto White balance
    This is the lowest shutter speed my little camera will do.

    Thanks guys for the kind words. This is my "second to last" mod til the big project start.

    icarus: Thanx for the proof read. Original post editted.
    jaids: This light have three different zone each of which is controlled by one of the drivers. The fatmans controls the upper and lower zone of the outer ring of 6x TY0H LuxIII. The center piece WX1S LuxV is controlled by the nFlex driver.

    Freddy, it's no secret.

    Here's my "final CPF" mod for this year.


    And here's the big project which is currently in assembly process. All the fine tunning and modding will start in December 2005.

    Jonathan, my congrats as well.

    However, I thought we were keeping you far too busy to work on that second mod. Listen up everyone!! Jonathan isn't busy enough, come up with some new projects for him! He is working on unauthorized, non-flashlight mods!!!

    If you don't know from the way my projects have gone, kids win over lights every time, so take the time for them!

    When you are old and gray, the kids will still love you, and will bring you grandkids, but the flashlights will have faded away and those you sold them to will only be demanding more!

    "We want a Cross pen sized light that puts out 15,000 lumens with an adjustable beam from 1/2 degree to full flood and that will run indefinitely without warming up while the miniature nuclear fusion power plant in it requires replacement only every 300 years, please! In addition, the CCT should be 5750 degrees +/- one half degree."

    Congrats again, cool new light and good luck!

    Bill

    Congratulations Jonathan! So, have you chosen his/her first flashlight yet? I just hope it's a hot wire [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    BTW, you keep this modding up and there'll be no reason for folks to go hot wire if they can get 1,000 lumens and 45 minutes of high from a 2D.

    Great job...and great job!

    Congratulations man that's some exciting news! Sephiroth is undoubtedly powerful, but I think it's only fair that you name your little one Cloud since s/he is gonna be even more powerful! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/happy14.gif[/img]
