with this osram led you can make a tube light with one led that out throws D1 with XP-L HI.

I“m interested in a LED, driver, and centering ring “upgrade” kit.
I really like my Emisars, but think the throw difference from the D1 to the D1S should be greater.
This would fix that!

Hey Hank, I really like how you jump on the latest greatest thrower LED. It can really make your products so much better than what you’ve shown is a good example.

But please let me join others with the question:
Is the driver going to be regulated?
Many of BLFers are savvy enough to use only weak cells with FET+white flate combo. But we’re an exception….you could artificially increase resistance in your host, but that would be a hack rather than a solution.

Tried this led with D1. It simply doesn’t have good enough reflector. It top half and bottom half has a little different focal point whith doesn’t matter with larger led like XP-L HI. I played with focusing for hours.
It can’t get any better than this.

Thanks a lot for the info.
I wanted to do the same to mine.
GT Mini, D1…some good lights that turn out to have too poor reflectors for that LED.
And actually both have been my white flat candidates. :/

Ok, you got me. I want, cause I like, a lot.

I have a D1S with the Titanium 18650 tube from the Ti D4, the D1S is black with the Ti tube, love it. Can you perhaps offer us a clear anodized D1S with the White Flat? Basically don’t bead blast it after machining and don’t put it in a dye bath, just straight from the machines and into the ano, then seal it. Could you do that? I’d (and many other’s I’m sure) absolutely love a clear machined finish D1S! Most especially if it could have the square blocky knurling of the Titanium D4 18650 tube… Oh Yeah! Big Smile



It may not be so simple….
That’s how thickly anodized undyed alu looks like:

That’s a different alloy and different thickness, but how thin would ano have to be to produce practically no colour change?

Hanks has said a few times that it would be limited to 5 amps. Hank, if you haven’t already put this info in the OP, that may help out.

Definitely interested!

I guess (or I hope), it could be even used as a star pointing beam for astronomers (backup for the banned green lasers).

We’ll find out when he’s ready to tell everyone. He doesn’t like to reveal things very far in advance.

Agro, I have lights that this is successfully done on… wouldn’t have asked if it weren’t possible. Heck, I’ve done it to parts myself. Wink

Good to know.
I believe we asked several manufacturers to do that already and nobody agreed. Sad
Any idea why is it so?

I doesn’t blame them. It designed for XP-L HI and it is perfectly good tor that. Maybe the big corona what show something isn’t perfect But 48 kcd still very good for this size.
Yes, the D1 reflector is designed for the XP-L HI, which does not produce good beam with the CSLNM1.TG upon testing, the D1S reflector produces good beam with the CSLNM1.TG LED.

Vinh from skylumen tested the CSLNM1.TG LED in the D4S and got 3,000 lumen with 126,000cd @turn on, please use this LED in your D4S!

Agro, a lot of the industry doesn’t like change, they’re used to hiding imperfections behind sandblasting. To take the parts straight from the CNC to the ano bath will show the machine marks from the tooling and while some of us like that the industry is afraid it will be seen as ugly or unfinished by the consumer market at large. So on the few occasions we have had success it has been in limited runs. I’m ok with that, a serial numbered limited run of 100, or 300, would be great. If they saw a quick sell out then they might be interested in taking it further, maybe a second run of 500 or 1000, who knows…

Very much interested as well, but also interested in exactly how the 5 amps restriction is implemented. Regulated would give you 5 amps pretty exactly, but using a FET, you can restrict it to 5A max based on the best fully charged cell with adding the right amount of resistance - very different solutions.

Most definitely purchasing one. Can’t have enough mini throwers to lend out, Maybe I’ll keep this one for self and lend the D1s more.

I would get both D1S and D4S with this new emitter but only if you make a 21700 version.
