Updated the UltraFire UF-10 with a Nichia 319ATE SM655 D440 6500K emitter for a nice hexagonal spot.
MTN FET driver, 16mm Noctigon, reverse clicky, 16500 cell.

319A Version rough numbers:
5.2A Max
Flood – 1036lm
Zoom – 392lm
Lux – 17000
Lux – 900
Throw – 260m

I had originally modded this light with an XP-L HI but always wanted to try the Nichia under a plano aspheric, I like it better now Thumbs Up

Although the camera doesn’t pick it up quite right the centre picture gives a rough idea of spot pattern.
It doesn’t quite reach the sky and has lost some throw with the new emitter but is still not bad for a compact wee pocket rocket Wink

XP-L HI Version rough numbers:
4.5A Max
Flood – 1120lm
Zoom – 406lm
Lux – 29000
Throw – 340m

That looks amazing.
Next best thing to a circular spot is a hexagon Big Smile

Yeah the hex shape is something different to the usual square.
MT-G2 would look great too.
