Cheap lightweight xml2 t6 with single AA(14500) D.I.Y. project.

Hi everyone;
I’m only a watcher on budgetlight for a long time.
Yesterday I complete a little 1000 lumen with single AA project and wish to share.
Firstly I bougt
the emitter from Fasttech.
It’s

And driver from Dx
5 mode 4 star 2800 mah led driver. It’s the best way to feed a T6.

And finally I need a little aluminum flashlight from anywhere.
And find it from DX.
http://dx.com/p/mini-0-5w-1-led-50-lumen-1-mode-flashlight-black-1-x-aa-...
It have more than enough quality and the is a pleace for hold driver and emitter like expencive ones.

Total budget like 5,7+4,2+3,5 (13,4) USD.

Montage is very easily.
Results are
Tank007 703 (110 Lum)

Xml2 T6 with 2800mah (14500 battery. No idea Lum)

Thanks for interest.

Volkan Ademoglu.

That will Not work like you imagine…
The problem is this driver, will not give you 2.8A with a 14500 and xml2…

I have learned that a good driven XPG sometimes is better than an under driven XML. So order a xpg2 from fasttech and compare the light outputs…

Hi Volkan! Welcome to BLF! Party

Unfortunately I couldn’t see your photos unless I go to Google Docs directly. You could upload them to Picasa instead?

Sounds like a fun little guy that puts out a bunch of light. I may have to copy you and make one too. Welcome aboard vademoglu!

Here is a similar driver for about a buck less:

Thanks for your good wishes.

The video link from last night .
I use the tail button with one hand. Because of this mode changes shown bad on video.

it is better you specify “mA” instead of “mAh”.
mAh is a unit for battery capacities, means mA hour
your driver’s current capacity is the amount of current that can handle, unit should be “mA”

Interesting build, do you have a way to measure the tailcap current?
