Built my first triple! EE X6 XP-L V6 3D triple 11,3A

Finally every parts arrived. yesterday I built it. It makes 11,3A at tailcap on turbo. A17DD driver, XP-L V6 3D leds, Copper spacer and springs bypassed with wire through board directly to switch in tailcap with BLF PD68 high current switch board. I don’t know how many lumens cause I don’t have a light meter.
I like the very smooth transition from hotspot to spill. Best flooder I have.
The light intensity is comparable with a Convoy L6 in a room with ceiling bounce.
The noctigon is directly soldered on the copper spacer. I have a video of it. I will upload it with the video of the full built when I have time to cut them.

Wow nice!
I like this light just with a simple XML2 NW and stock Eagle Eye driver (bought it to swap the goodies from the Kronos X6 with but just liking it how it is lol).
So what you did, making it a floody triple, very cool!

Nice, this is a must-have build in every modder’s collection, I don’t use mine at all because of the weight but it was lots of fun to build. The beam produced by this optic is far superior to any small triple/quad carclo.

I like your idea of upgrading the switch PCB, might start doing so with my future mods! What is the oshpark link for ordering? Thanks

I built one a few days ago with XP-L V6 0Ds…she puts out a lot of light. Since I put a fet in my L6, the L6 is a tad bit brighter.

My favourite built light Smile for now..
I want to sell my Palight Boss1 but if I don’t I will build a triple C8 reflector monster of It with three XP-L HI or dedomed XM-L2 and between the three C8 reflector will be an S2+ reflector or a carlco 10507 with triple XP-L for flood. Independent switches for throw and flood. Big Smile

Those pre-drilled holes look nice, but then I wouldn’t have much use for my dremel anymore, lol.

Love it!

Will that upgraded switch PCB fit in a S2+ or BLF A6?

The diameter is 17mm. I can measure my S2+ tomorrow but I think it will fit too. The A6 I don’t know cause I don’t have that.

Nice build!

I agree it is a must-have (and although I have the parts ready for many months, I do not have it Facepalm )

Most excellent! Is that the Ledil Cute triple lens? Have you thought of sanding it out flat or are you happy with the pattern/output?

Yes Ledil Cute lens. I thougt about polishing but I try to use it this way and if I like it I will leave it that way. I built it one day ago so not used it much.

My grey S2+ switch PCB is 16.15mm but it has more room so very tight but it will fit.

Thank you all! More pics and videos coming later. Today I want to make the lighted tailcap for it.

Nice build Zozz. You have built the V6 now for the V8. Wink

And the lighted tailcap is working Big Smile
I used BLF A17DD driver, and 470 Ohm bleeder resistor on driver and 47KOhm resistors for each pair of the 6 leds in the tailcap. In the tailcap I used PD68s rev5.1 led ring board instead of the stock aluminum washer. This is for the 14mm rubber boot.
The six leds eat 0,106mA so if I use a 3000mA battery it will last for about 19 days.

Is that 0.106ma, or one tenth of a milliamp?

If so, that’s
3000mah / 0.106ma / 24hrs / 365days = 3.23 years

Either way, it looks great!

One tenth of a milliamp. So this way it enough for 3 years?

Gorgeous. Very nice work. I really like the way you did the lighted switch.

Two days ago I built another X6 triple for a hungarian forum member. I made more detailed pics of the build and video. Here are some pics and a link for the whole X6 triple album. I don’t know when I have time for video editing. But I have a nice video of the complete soldering of spacer, noctigon and the three leds together. After finished it makes 12A at tailcap at start and then drops down to 11A after 10-20 seconds.
