SOLD - Maglite 2D 3up, with T6 leds, TIR Optic, copper heat sink and 8AA battery holder - Ship Anywhere

Hello,

SOLD

I have a 2D Maglite for sale. Please refer to the BUILD THREAD.

It has been modded to hold 3 XM-L T6 3C leds, with a Frosted TIR Optic. The leds sit on a Copper heat sink, backed up by an Aluminum heat sink. Power is via 3 NANJG 105C drivers in a Master/Slave configuration. The master driver has the E1320 5 mode program on it. The battery holder is a custom made 8AA (4S/2P) holder, with copper contacts and gold plated springs. I measured 8 amps at the tail cap on start up and it leveled down to 7.5 amps after 30 seconds.

I expect the light would only run on high for a few minutes, as the amp draw is fairly severe. (Use Eneloops). Don't use Alkalines or any other battery except NiMHs.

The bezel and tail cap are polished and it has a glass lens over top of the TIR optic.

Remember, this is a "Home Made" light, done with only hand tools. It is not as precise as you might find in a good factory light. It's more of a shelf queen, than a daily driver, but it is unique and I will not make another exactly the same as this light.    You cannot remove the head on this light.

 SOLD

Price is $70USD (CONUS) and $85USD Worldwide.

Payment is PayPal  valleau (insert the @ sign here) suddenlink.net

First person posting "I'll take it" in this thread, followed by payment and a PM with your full name and shipping address, gets the light.

 

Thank You,

Justin

Hi OL

Could you please guesstimate how much lumens your mag puts out please?

Edit: Sorry just went through your build thread and saw you already guesstimated it Big Smile

Actually, knowing the total of the tail cap amps, 7.75 amps, and some three finger figuring, I would assume about 2300 lumens would be a good estimate, but that could be all smoke too, since I can't test that. When I said about 1600, in the build thread, I didn't do any three finger figuring, so that was a very low estimate.

Anyone want to chime in here, go for it...

It's bright!

Assuming 100% efficiency, each LED will get 2.58 amps, but let’s round down to 2.5 amps because the driver probably isn’t 100% efficient (kind of impossible).
At 2.5 amps an XML will produce just over 800 lumens in IDEAL CONDITIONS – meaning adequate heat management. Since this is all in a maglite with what might quite possibly be one of the least surface area lights ever made we can also safely assume that this isn’t ideal for heat management. So let’s drop the lumen output by 50 lumens.

So, 750*3 = 2250 lumens.

This is just an estimation, but it’s safe to assume that it will output over 2100 lumens.

Also Justin, what is the ‘three finger figuring’ method you used?

That's when you are missing fingers, LOL. It's just an expression.

Lol

Does every one who buys from Old-Lumens feel like they just cheated someone? You can tell a lot of effort and care and parts went into this light.

The 2AA I bought off OL was $3 more than an unmodded version from a local store.
I love it and still use it everyday.

Texas, speaking from experience you'll still be bummed about missing out on it 2 weeks from now. Silly

I am pretty sure I will like it. Now that it is official that it is mine, I am in the giddy mode. I have read and re-read the the build thread and oogled over the pics there and here. A question has come to me.

What does this mean?

The only other modded light I have purchased was the “E1320 5 mode UF 2100”. It has no blinkie modes and has memory. To over-ride the memory, you have to cycle the switch fairly quickly, helping to minimize nuisance unintentional mode changes. I like this UI and think it would be icing on the cake if this is what is coming to me.

I googled the driver used and saw that by default, it is a 5-mode scroll-through: high, medium, low, SOS, strobe; with a two second memory. This would be fine too.

Sorry, I am mostly just thinking out loud as I impatiently wait for this light.

The master driver is the driver that controls the modes, this means that the modes are: Moonlight-Low-Med-High-Turbo like your UF2100.

I just received my modded mag here at work. I slapped some Eneloops in it and all is in good working order. The UI is as described above by scaru. The tint is nice and creamy.

Love it.

Thanks Old-Lumens
