CRX Brass Puck

CRX Brass Puck

This wee fella is made from an old brass coin trick I've had laying around for years.

It has three 4mm magnets on the bottom, one of which controls a momentary switch to operate the light as can be seen below.

Nichia 219B on 20mm KD DTP MCPCB
20mm x 1.5mm ARC glass
Cyan GITD bezel trim
Soldered brass LED shelf
Micro USB port
TP4056 ME charger board
(Modded to 60mA charge current)
120mAh Lipo cell
Potted internals
Magnetic
Momentary base switch
High - 126lm
Med -  56lm
Low - 10lm
Size - 29mm x 22mm
Weight - 52g

This light uses a SWM C10R driver and 120mAh lipo cell with micro USB charging port.

CRX Brass Puck

The light has three modes and can be operated while on a flat surface or by simply pressing the button.
A handy little night light when placed on the fridge or table top etc as it just needs a press on top to operate Cool
Press & hold while on changes modes. Has mode memory.

.

Not many build pics but some bits n' pieces shown here.

As a steampunk fan, I swear I want to move into the home where CRX lives!

Another great creation!

An enlightened mind is a joy for ever(ybody).

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

What do you use to pot your internals?

Very nice Beer ! It would be interested to see build pics and how you manage to stuff all that inside that small body.
Could you post a link of that charger board (TP4056 ME)?
Did you connect the battery output over the TP4056 board?

I used UV setting glue for the driver in the top and JB Weld for the stuff in the bottom half.

Awesome job CRX, I bet most people can’t even figure out what it is, until you turn it on.
I admire your creativity. Thumbs Up

Got it Thumbs Up , very handy little module. I’ll get a few of those for sure.

I suppose this only works with drivers that use momentary switch (side switch). Driver is blocking charging current from going to LED when flashlight is off.
Maybe I’m to ignorant but I don’t see how this charging module would be connected in flashlights with standard tail switches.

Nice work, CRX Beer

Thanks for the charger link, I didn’t know they came that small. I’ll be getting some of those for my parts box!

There is a few ways to do it, driver with momentary switch, an extra wire going direclty to the battery something like shown below, a charger/ driver like the the one in the Eagle Eye X2R or if you use a driver with a low moon mode that will work too but not the best method as the light needs to be on while charging. Maybe some other ways too?

New guy here just wondering if you would ever make one of these to sell? I just started learning about modifying lights so I think I’m a few years away from any of these builds lol. Your stuff is awesome!

Can’t blame a guy for trying lol. I always seem to find the guys doing really cool stuff after everyone else so they are usually pretty busy or booked up. Thought I would give it a shot lol.

Hi mate thanks, welcome to BLF. I do sell stuff from time to time but making lights by hand for the purpose of selling would not be cost effective.
To give an idea I think I could make one of these for £25 in parts and maybe six hours time, whatever that’s worth Wink
Good to hear you’re getting into modding lights, lots of good guys here covering all areas Thumbs Up

Thanks for the response! If you ever do make another one of these and are willing to sell please let me know! Your work is awesome can’t wait to see what you make next.
