45. Nice!! I’m jealous. I am interested in getting a real strong thrower and probably a high power pocket rocket like one of those S6’s.

I have some S6 hosts that I can do with triple XP-G2 S2 1D’s like the one still listed, or with XP-L’s, however I’m going to be using drivers with a 30 second turbo timer with these going forward to reduce the danger of them getting too hot. For a real strong thrower, how strong? I think I can hit 480+ kcd in a 1405 but the 5A driver has audible whine in lower modes, or a proven 425+ in the 1504 for less effort/cost and no noise. With the new buck driver from Mountain Electronics, 500kcd in the 1405 may be possible at some point without audible whine, but I need to get boards, build them first, and test them.

What kind of medium modes do you end up with on the S6’s? Halfway decent runtimes? As for throwers….. yeah anything in the 425+ candela range would be good. That puts it in FF4 territory anyways.

Yeah it gets a lot better runtime stepped down. Never done an actual test, but I suspect around 90 minutes at 20%, 3 hours at 10%, and 10-20 hours at 2%.

The boards I have right now use a 30 second step down, I had requested they step down to 20%, skipping 75% and 40%. I’m not sure if Richard was able to program them that way, or if he had to eliminate 75% and just have it step down to 40%. I don’t remember hearing back what he did, so I’ll have to test the drivers to find out.

I also have some bare boards and components for 15 BLF17DD’s with guppydrive(sp?).

I also have red Convoy S2+‘s with the stainless switch I can do, not just S6’s. Though being smaller they will heat up a bit more.

I like the form factor of the S2 but I’m not a fan of the colored lights…. silver,grey, and black are preferable.

Awesome. Just surprise me. I am not a fan of the strobe…. so if that is an option….otherwise no big deal.

If the guppydrive drivers I just put together work as expected would you prefer that or the one I described earlier with the 30 second turbo timer. If you want the guppydrive and want it locked on a specific mode and turbo timer let me know and I’ll set it up and solder the second star to ground.

Edit: MTN17DD guppydrv drivers are up and running.

Take $5 off of the listed prices for the remaining lights. (new prices listed in original post) I’ll offer an additional discount via PM if anyone buys 2. Prices would still include USPS Priority shipping anywhere in the continental US, international shipping is actual cost -$10.

I’m looking to clear space in my “finished lights toolbox” so I can make some more.

I’m glad you like it!

Two more lights shipped this morning. Down to 5. Once a couple more sell I’ll close this thread and be posting some more lights I’ve been working on in a new for sale thread. Thanks again for those who bought lights already.

Both lights arrived today and are entirely as expected.

Nice and bright and very well modified.

Thanks Henry,

Tom
