Amazing detail. How did you measure the current through the momentary switch?

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Thanks, i just clamped a piece of wire to each end of the open case then use the DMM between bat- and the switch contact but it’s really just the same as doing a tailcap measurement.

The difference being it sounds like you include the switch in the circuit unlike most tail cap measurements, nice.

I use three types of two part resin depending on application.
Tommy Walsh clear resin.
151 clear resin.
These two are cheap.
Devcon clear resin.
More expensive but better quality.
Usually buy from *bay.
I think most clear resins will yellow over time but i haven’t noticed it on anything I’ve done yet.
I also use kaffuta UV setting glue from fasttech. I used this directly on the LED and sanded/ polished flush with the GITD ring at the front to protect the emitter.

Yeah those 10180 cells will give their lives if you ask them LOL , about 20-25c for short periods.
I’ve had some give out 2A but they don’t last long at that so i thought momentary direct drive would be a good idea for briefly lighting something up and the QTC for more extended runtime lower lighting.
A really useful setup worn on a neck chain.

I’ve also seen 1.5A from a 10180 before. Surprising, since their capacity is only 90mAH. Well, it figures to just less than 17C, but still seems like a lot, because they’re so small!

They seem to average around 60-65mAh, the 90mAh claim is a bit optimistic, unless i’ve just been getting the lower capacity IMR type. Smile

The MBI Nuke 10250 tests at 90mAh, i have two of them waiting for me to do something with…
