Without pictures, I don't think folks understand what kind of a beast you have built.  I hope you don't mind if I post a couple from you album that is linked to above.  If you do not want them here, I will remove them from this post.

I don't know the exact dimensions of those 3 reflectors, but they are for the Olight SR 90 which has a 100mm head.

The diameter is 88mm per reflector.

Super beam you got there, congratulations. Is it right if i say the diameter of the flashlight is around 250 mm? What host is that ?

I don't even doubt that Vinz has cooked something new. He really does thing on high level.

 

But you could put pictures of de domed emitters so we can try to guess Smile?

You are right men !
Vinz is a speciallist and he does his job with love.
No fucking money intress like ….

You do not see anything, when you look at the emitters.

I like to know self, how he do that… But this is Vinz secret.
I only have the luck,he did it for me.

When you want to see what is possible with XM-L2
look at his new creation: post 7

The beam in natural is pure white.

The beamshots were made at a flashaholic party .

So this should be XM L2 U2 1A driven at 7A. Normally by de doming it should have nice upper neutral white color(some says ugly greenish but I don't notice that in fields, in fact I see better than with cool white) and with this de dome method it remains cool white even cooler than original. Very interesting...

It looks like 400-500KCD light to me because by judging my aspheric(500KCD) at same distance mine would look more hotspot intense but this is of course bigger hotspot size. Can't judge the picture.

 

He could use some kind of fluid on phosphor... Maybe there are some fluids that phosphor absorbs without any harm to layer.

Yeah, it is 500 KLUX
but the spot is huge.

There is a lens direkt on the dedomed emitter.

No Lumen less.

I don't have luck with condenser lenses. Each I tried so far decreased my throw. But Vinz managed to dig something good.

Nicely done. Your light looks dangerous with the amount of throw it has. Wink

Hey! Who dares to post pictures of MY light?
The only one in existance that I know of?

LOL

Seriously: I do own the light pictured above and it is a special custom aespheric build by the German Custom Light Builden known as “Vinz”.
As far as I know it’s a one of, at least for the civil market…….(it was designed for Special Forces, Police etc).

Sorry…..

That is some crazy intense throw from that thing. Catadioptric lense?

Vinz builds some fabulous lights. Have seen some of his work before but those two are spectacular. Both probably way out of what I want to spend on one light.

Great work!! Really, it looks good to me, for the function part of its job. I would carry it any night to my shooting bench for some target illumination. Unless I used goggles for the spill light and a bee keeper’s suit for the swarm of mosquitoes that are coming, I might be done in a hurry, though. Smile

I like that you chose the single copper plate. I also like that you tried it with reflectors, good way to experiment. I too am looking at combinations of reflectors, to use in the group with lenses.

I can say that I would have installed a custom lens arrangement instead, but in some situations—money aside—the reality is that a cluster of reflectors can often be very beneficial over giant lenses in this range—this size of light. Reflectors from a known host also have a known beam profile and capability. If 3 fit, than 3 will work, and it’s get to the next task. Lenses have to do much more than simply fit inside a shell! A single lens will take some effort to tune the optical system to that host, because it would take more than one primary lens to achieve focus near that copper plate, while keeping a “known performance” level. If a 225-250mm aspheric lens was used with even a more shallow 0.40 NA to help lower lens weight, just imagine how much glass would still be at the front. You would feel it alright. A reflector and G2 trio isn’t a bad option in his case.

Special method and “no green”? I always called that proper dedoming, not special. Someone figured out it’s special when you don’t damage the item being used as the centerpiece. Heh! I’ve seen the “green”, and seen it well, but not from my own dedome. (Stock OLight factory dedomes, clean, but greens everywhere. Simple fix with new LED.) You can “spray” LEDs with a lot of things to influence their color, put glues around the die to keep 450nm bouncing around, they don’t really care until you start blocking lots of light to cause a thermal runaway cato failure. Heck, you can color the die with crayola crayons if you want, just use the right color. Don’t hold me accountable for the bond wires, burnt LED, and giving away the $1300 secret. I mean, taking a wild guess. I didn’t do it.

88mm per reflector. Hmm. 3* L-RADWs might fit in there. Smile Kidding, kidding.

Way to go on the throw and the light. Hope to see you keep your imagination working hard. Smile

I like bright lights, and I cannot lie.

Not me, but if it’s a good picture, throw some word or username in it like some of us do so we get credit when it’s tossed around the web.

But that is the stock Feilong D80 lens I think, right? The base of the light head looks like a J20 head base, but doesn’t use the same machining cuts as it internally. If it did, you could really up the ante of that light with “the driver”, for the J20 builds. Speaking of that…

That is a very nice looking build, part of why the J20 was picked for the monsters in the making—the cooling head is similar on the FeiLong, but a section of head material (~7 fins) shorter in length than the J20. I know theres a few stock lenses which will smoke that BV lens if you ever consider the upgrade. Those bezel spikes, I wouldn’t want to be in a hurry and have it roll off a table to land on a shoe. Bye bye big toe.

As far as I know juts an aespheric lens………but of very good quality.
Led dedomed, bonding wires strengthened and on top of that a pre-collimating lens, so not light is lost.

HAHA, no, my toe wouldn’t like that much either. Those bezel spikes are mean and even a bit impractical as the light does have some significant “back-throw”.
When you’re out in the dark and the light is on max it can really hurt your sight. A definite improvement point.

I don’t know which head was used and even if the original lens is still in there or whether that has been replaced.
What I like about this light is not only the excellent performance (for an aespheric the spot in insanely large, and therefore very practical) but the pure craftsmanship throughout the entire light. Nothing, really nothing can be compared to the quality of the original Acebeam/Thrunite components.

Extremely tight threads, excellent ano, the selectorring turns with just enough resistance and extremely smooth, nothing scratching, not even remotely, without any play.

Cheers
Nico
