AR coated celopane.

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

That it’s gonna be floody. Not gonna be a lot of beam to shoot. But it should surely light up a large area, perhaps even a football field would show pretty darn well. So, with that said, we want to see “beamshots” of you Illuminating the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders! Beamshots or it didn’t happen! Smile

We used to go drink beer under the landing lights off Bachman. And do other stuff there… I think that they frown on that now.

I tried lighting up a cheerleader… she vaporized.

I really want to test it at a school playing field. But it looks like most of them are kept under lock and key these days… can’t be having the kids having fun, you know.

So does this driver have a strobe or not? (I really hope so...)

It has MANY different strobe and blinky modes. The firmware is basically the same as my SRK driver. The three main strobe modes are a slow 10Hz mode, a fast 16 Hz mode, and the random strobe that varies the timing and intensity of the pulses. There are also a couple of bike strobes that don’t blink full off, several beacon modes, and the programmable Morse code mode. You can program the driver to select the modes/order that you want to use.

Cool, roughtly equivalent to the 4 T5 fluorescent 4 footers I put in an 8’ fixture. 17,000+ lumens. A very nice room light! Orrrrr, a great bug attractor for going fishing! Smile

Great job on the finish work. If you water proof the array it looks like it would make a dandy hot water birdbath. Or maybe even deep fry the turkey. That is some insane amount of power.

Thanks for the latest update. Is there other members sitting and reading about this light with a smirk on their face and every few seconds a guttural noise emanates from the bottom off their throat out through half opened smirking lips?

Funny you should mention that… I had it sitting up outside (turned off) for a while. When I came back, a cockroachy thing was in the bowl. Let there be light! And He saw the light! And it was good! Smokin’ good. J)

Edited post 2 with some actual voltage vs current numbers for the assembled light. At 7A drive level, looks like it does 21,000 lumens. I can’t get it in my sphere for a real test. To get 7A, I fully charge the battery pack then use the “storage charge” function on the charger to drain the pack to 3.94 volts/cell. I have run the array at 10 amps (briefly) and it survived… doesn’t seem like a wise thing to do for long.
