Nice Matt !

I have one aluminum X5 and one copper SC . Both are quads , aluminum is xp-g3 s4 3a & bistro firm fet driver and the copper one has 219C 4000K leds and bistro driver again . I just think they’re 2 of my top lights … Love

I have enough 219C’s but I am a little afraid of melting it’s face off! My 219C triple drew over 18 amps before I de-tuned it.

I bought this chunk of aluminium profile today (the flashlight is for size reference), 6×6×6cm, 4mm thickness. I showed it to my girlfriend and she said it was the most boring thing she had ever seen. Is it just me who sees endless wonderful opportunities with it? Love

Extruded aluminium with nice thickness of 4 mm… Hellooooo good looking Wink

That copper light looks pretty cool charles. Love

Inspired by this thread, I ordered two Lee filter books from a dutch seller. I got them today.

I love it that every filter sample comes with a transmission spectrum!

The Mateminco copper light still looks great, Despite the failed attempt by Neal, I hope that a group buy or coupon will come by again at some point.

I was in my local Microcenter, and found these in a bin near the check outs for $1.99, so I picked another one up:

I love these things. They are really great when working on projects, as the screws, etc. don’t all go wandering off (because this is magnetized)!

Thanks! The Mateminco E01 smaller head size & lighter weight make it feel better holding in the hand than BLF X5 copper.
I ask a friend purchased E01 for me from taobao.com.
About Neal GB failed, The only reason I can think of is the Banggood plain to sell Astrolux version in the near future!

Where did you get that black x5??? It would look real nice next to my E14. Last night I ordered a BLF A6, DQG Tiny 26650 7x XPG2 and a Lumintop SD26. The silver on the x5 and x6 are the only things holding me back from buying. Can you get an X6 in black too?

Bought a 4 drawer tool cart for my work/computer room from Harbor Freight on sale for $99.99 It’s use is for electronic parts and related tools. Took me 90 minutes to build. I’m very happy with the quality.

TN42vn a few days ago.FT 30Q were rattling a tad to much so I bought:

4 X 30Q BT.

I never experienced this! It is almost impossible to get a DMM reading on them within 10 seconds!,,,,,,,,the numbers just keep getting scrambled. It happened when I got them. Which was 3.42V,,way under specs[ Samsung specs 3.62 to 3.69v] for shipment.

After they were charged the DMM keeps giving me scrambled numbers.Three of them will eventually settle, the Fourth does not and I just assume it is close to the same as the others! I know it is NOT my DMM,,,every other battery I have it gives a reading right away.

It is frustrating because I always check the voltage after use and after batteries are charged.

A failure is not a failure unless we fail to recognize that something needs to be changed.
