My annual batch of new year micromags is now for sale. I did a batch of six this time which accounts for the sales thread being a bit later than usual. I’ve used Mountain Electronic’s version of the FET+1 driver in these micromags as well as nichia 219C, XP-G3, or XP-L HI emitters on triple noctigon. These combinations uses direct drive off a high drain 14500 cell and the low forward voltage to drive the light to 6-8 amps on turbo at start up (amp draw varies depending on emitter used). There is around four to five minutes of run time before the light gives a low voltage warning when the battery reaches 3 volts. The battery is only providing about an amp to the emitters by time the low voltage protection kicks in.
These lights also feature the advantage of a dual channel driver to create a true firefly mode of about half a lumen (estimated in comparison to a D25A on firefly mode). Additional features include a 90 second turbo timer as a safety to prevent damage to flashlight/flesh, a four mode user interface (Moon-Low-Med-Turbo) with off time memory, a tailcap spring bypass mod to reduce resistance, and Carclo optics. My micro mags are all built as described here excepting that I use aluminum heatsinks instead of copper. I estimate around 1500-2000 lumens at start up based on testing by Djozz. Turbo should still be giving a couple hundred lumens when the low voltage warning flashes.
In the interest of full disclosure I have to say I’m not impressed with Maglite’s quality control on this batch. They’re still pretty nice but they do sport the odd nick or thin spot in the anodizing.
