Thanks for sharing; that's one heck of a Handscheinwerfer !

Since lux is your goal, is there a reason you decided on reflectors over plano-convex (aspheric) lenses ?

Either way, it will prove to be a project 'an sich' to align the hotspots in triple throwers like these Surprised.

We like the little- useful Spill we got.

This light will be lost @ using an aspheric.

And we like to do it in an other way, to get the LUX.

You have to register on the German forum in order to see those pictures so I just thought that you could put it here via insert picture button?

Could someone please start another thread with pics of this build? Id love to see the build progression and what parts were used to achieve the final result. Its difficult to follow along with only a translator and no pics.

2M lux with LED! Can you imagine that? From the beamshots it lights up the trees at 700m like it was in daylight, truely mind-blowing.

The beginning is buying:

the reflectors, the host, the driver, touchy, the battery (5S Lipo), volt checker, LEDs, Alu rond 150 mm 20 mm, Copper rond 150mm 3mm, Srcews and cabel etc…, heat creme Big Smile

It is best when you have an lathe,or someone do it for you…

And it is not an easy job to build it.
The host seems really big,but it just look so.
Inside (Batteryroom) is full. No space at all…

Now we change the XP G2 R5 to XP G2 S2

DerWichteldriver @ 5A
and a new special dedomimg methode from Vinz
with a special finish.
No green tint and some procent more brightness.

Now 2,2 Mio LUX measered with a Gossen Luxmeter @ 32 meter.

Beamshots with some other modds and flashlights:

Is this just heating the LED with a soldering iron and then pulling it off with a knife while it’s hot?

Wow!, 3 close to 100mm reflectors.  What a thrower.  Great work.

 

EDIT:

How are you getting the heat out of the host?

And,

Do you have a source for those reflectors?

Vinz has a new system to dedome the LED (only he knows how to do it…)

The LEDs are on cooperstars
Then a cooper ronde (125 mm* 3mm)
Then a really big Alu CPU behind.

The heat does not come out .. But it is not a problem..

I bought them from an Olight distributor.

You said that there’s a special finish – is he spraying something onto the LED after de-doming to mitigate the colour shift?

Either way, this torch you’ve made is extremely awesome. It’s innovation! I love the idea of putting 3 SR90 reflectors together and driving XP-G2s @ 5A each. 2 MILLION lux. What the damn hell? Isn’t this Maxabeam territory? Very nice work Xandre, Fritz15 and Andi.

The beam and the light itself are total bad ass.  Thank you again for sharing.
