I attempted to change the optic since that was pretty easy right…. riiiight. The only other triple optic I had was one that was supplied with a triple led on star from kaidomain.

It didn’t fit and at first I thought it was because of the different diameter (thicker) legs

After dremeling down the legs I then I discovered it was also a different height Facepalm

I think the led holes are also a different diameter

So it looks like this will be staying as a super flooder.

Nice work man. Cool stuff!
So how does the kaidomain optic compare to the carclo in terms of beam profile? Not talking about this particular light just wondering if you’ve checked and compared before.

What optic do you have —- I have had great success with sanding (1000 grit) and polishing the 10511 optic—when sanding kind of use your finger tip in the center—the optic is slightly dimpled in the center

I just recently got the kd optics and haven’t tried them at all so I can’t say.

That would be an option I would try if I had a spare. Not keen on screwing it up and waiting a few weeks for the next order to come in Sick

My opinion, you glued driver on wrong side. This not have sense.
Upside will coolnig fet and better read temperature.

Nice crazy design Smile

actually the fet laughs at currents like 10A, 140mW loss
AMCs generate more heat

also temp stepdown with long heat path on lower modes will be closer to case temp
turbo will be higher
