Mag64656

I bought a couple weeks ago. This is going to be brighter than about anything else you will see in person. On Lux Luthor’s Most Powerful MagMods it is Number 2. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?177171-LuxLuthor-s-Mo...

2D Mag and Mag64656

This is just from my iPod and much brighter in person. This is a 275W overdriven bulb running on 7 IMR MNKE 26650s.

You got one of those... Lucky! Care to estimate how many lux it puts out?

Lux I’ll have to measure. My meter does run low but the big reflector doesn’t give too bad of throw. Lumens are going to be 14-17,000 depending on how charged the batteries are. I’ll see what I can do for a lux measurement, but this particular bulb is all about flood. I did find that if I take the head all the way to toward the end of the threads it does have better throw. It does start fires and fast, but don’t look at the paper or you will be blinded.

Compared to some other lights, I would estimate this about 90k Lux. But, again, this is at at least 14,000 Lumens so that’s forgivable.

Yep, and it really is beastly. VPT of any kind will out throw it, but the lumen output of this really is insane. I’d have to turn on 3 of my biggest lights to equal this much power. 7 in series is kind of scary, but I’m using IMRs and I’m using Lambda’s tailcaps so at worse we’re looking at a Taepodong-2 here, so no worries, lol. I did get it with a spare and a much smaller filament bulb.

I’ve always had a soft spot for incans, but have never had any others besides a MC and a 28v Milwaukee. This is about as good as it gets with a 100CRI light. We should pass around this thing if shipping wasn’t so much, really.

Nice score.

Well, sir, you make lights we all lust after, really! This is cool though. I’m having a bonfire next month and a bunch of people over, you can guess what is going to start the fire, lol. Really, though I hope everybody can experience a good incan. JmPaul320…I was so close to buying the same light you have, I just couldn’t find any quality NiMh hi current cells, so was waiting to get something big.

And a person that can give missiles cool names. It’s hard to be scared when being threatened by the Nodong 1 and Nodong 2.

BTW, I’ve coaxed 20000 lumens out of this little puppy and it doesn’t start fires: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/15483

Lol, you’ve stumbled upon some degree of efficiency. Nice work. At the rate our gvt is promoting weapons sales, I don’t think they should ‘mess with t’xs’ let alone the US or even SK.

Yeah, no problem! Actually about any of the bigger mag mod incans will. I know even a regular MagCharger I can get dark colored paper to smoke. But, actually, you have to be pretty careful with these. I keep the tailcap off when not in use. It’s really like holding a hand held version of one of those 500W Torchiere floor lamps that used to be really popular, but still kinda dangerous.

I’ll try to get a real beam shot. Incans are most impressive to behold in person, 100 CRI has it’s benefits, but the actual warmth of the IR blasting out the front it what really blows you away!

Beam shots:These should be photo realistic to the way that these appear to the eye. Near bushes are 60 yards

First is Sipik SK68 clone with 14500

I have a 64638 to try as well. The filament appears to be about half the size. So I should get pretty decent lux with that one.

in the fm turbo head (same as the one you have) i got about 127klux with the 458 bulb… is the 638 bigger or smaller than the 458?

These are all rated 24V bulbs
Osram 64638 – 100w
Osram 64640 – 150w
Osram 64642 – 150w
Osram 64655 – 250w
Osram 64656 – 250w
Osram 64657 – 250w

I don’t have a 64458 for comparison, and cant find the Destructive test for the 638, but here is a comparison to the other bulbs that I have for this light.

L 64638 and 64656 R

The larger bulb really needs to be seated low in the reflector, so the head needs to be focused out quite a bit more than for the 638.

No, but that would be awesome. I’d be able to run a nice range of bulbs to their fullest and with constant brightness. Lots of benefits to regulation for sure.
