Could the driver be installed in a other light with e switch? what size is the driver?

Has anybody tried an xhp70 led in the Catapult v6? Looks like it could make a nice single cell host with some throw.

I’ve gone as large as XHP-50.2 FWIW.

Took it from long distance pencil beam to wider beam medium range, better suited for my preference.

I am thinking of going XHP70 to my old U21 Wink for the same reasons.

Seeking the light.

not sure why u want such a big emitter ? it wont be a really good thrower with tight hotspot.

What mcpcb did you use and how did you center it?

Not looking to make it into a thrower.
I would have two, one with XHP35 for tight hotspot throw, and one with XHP70 for added lumens, efficiency, and better illumination up close.
I find most XHP70 lights too floody, so this could be a nice compact host that still has some throw.

okay, otherwise have a look on astrolux ft02, it has the xhp70.2 and similar size, maybe someone posted beam pics there to give u an idea.

I used the “Sinkpad XHP50 12V 20mm Copper MCPCB” one of the few 12V boards available and the largest I could find at the time. Really needs a larger one (28-30 mm) to clear the reflector bottom.

Couldn’t find anything off the shelf, so I centered by eye and used thermal adhesive to keep in place.

Thanks for the added info pc_light and mortuus

FT02 is a good idea, forgot about that host.
Also thinking the V6 might work well using Clemence’s new quad e21a boards for a high CRI beast.

You could use the 32mm MCPCB from kaidomain and cut the trace and bridge it with a cable to adapt the MCPCB to 12V.

Like so

Also there was a 32mm MCPCB from Maxtoch at banggood for a while, only could find it at mtn now http://www.mtnelectronics.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id...

(also for XHP70 http://www.mtnelectronics.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id...)
