Strange drop in , U2 x 2

Strange day ....  Bit of chopping and grinding and gluing ..   Now I just need a Driver [ Im going to try a sandwitch driver ] 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

So will it throw a hotspot that looks like a figure-8 ?

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

It will have an oblong spill and two hotspots side by side on a short distance wall shot, but maybe they melt together at a greater distance.

I did a dual XP-G R5 this way , and yes the beam is just a little funky Fig8 , but only a little , maybe 5% ..

But you only notice on white walls ...

Go outside , and it works real well .  So I had to try Dual XM-L U2 , my only concern , is getting enough current to the emitters .

Got my fingers crossed for at least 4A

When I saw the headline for the topic, I was like "where where where? need to get that asap."

But's it's a custom job... and I'm still struggling on simple emitter/driver swapping. But maybe some day...

The problem is the driver , the sandwich driver did not work ...  

Im not good enough to add 7135 chips to the existing driver , so what I have is a 850Lumen Dual emitter set up ...

Nitecore EX10 - XM-L - Dual XM-L 

The dual has no hotspot or throw , its simply all flood [ lets see how long the animated gif lasts ] , 

And for around the house its simply fantastic , just watch the grass ...

Really a huge amount of light! No heatsink problem with 2 U2? Which host you use for this DIY?

Hmm, if neutal emitters would be used it would make an awesome photographer flashlight companion! Pretty neat one!

Looks like a wall of light to me.  You're right about the hot spot; the tree simply disappears but everything else is bathed in light.

Host is my black L2P [ was dual XP-G R5 ] 

The tree in the background only vanishes for the camera , because of all the light bouncing back from the walls , its even better to the naked eye . 

2xXM-L , no , no heating problems , both emitters are quite underdriven . [ It gets warm , but so far I havent run it for more than 2 minutes ]
