(Closed!) Relic's 3000th Post Giveaway: Select-a-Mod!

Closed, winner is Post #65 CheapThrills, as chosen by random.org.
Congrats!

Selection (as posted):
* Host: S4
* Emitter: XM-L2 3C
* QLite 7135 Chip Count: 8
* Mode group: 4!

 Thanks to everyone for playing!  I enjoyed seeing what everyone would like in an EDC.

Read on for important instructions! Smile

Last time I asked people to post what they would like to win.  That worked out OK, but now I have a different idea.

You get to pick your components and I'll build it up and send it to you.  That's right, just pick a host, emitter, and driver current in your comment and I'll order the parts, build up the light and ship it out.

To keep shipping costs down, I'm limiting the host to smaller EDC sized lights.

Note for those outside of Canada/USA: I'll ship it international, but I may ask for help with the cost, as it has increased recently. Please enter only if you are OK with this.

Rules:

  1. Must be a member of BLF on or before July 17 2013 (yes, anyone currently lurking has up to 24 hours to join and be a part of this one!)
  2. One comment per user please!  Your post number is your ticket, selected by random.org. Ticket zero is Mr.Admin, he's automatically entered.
  3. In your comment, use the format below to 'build' your light.
  4. Entries will be accepted for about a week, I'll give a warning shot about a day before it closes.
  5. Try to limit selections to the list below.  If anyone has suggestions for other parts, please note it in your comment and I'll consider them.  No guarantees.
  6. Based on stock levels and availability, I may need to ask the winner to alter their request.  We'll cross that bridge when we get there.

I'll do a quick build thread when the parts come in.

Comment Format:

Host: ___ (ex. S3)

Emitter type and tint: ___ ___ (ex. XM-L2 5C1) Note: Emitter will be on a SinkPAD or equivalent

QLite 7135 Chip Count: ___ (ex. 6)

Mode group: ___ (ex. 4)

Emitter: Nichia 219
Chip count: ? I’m not familiar with this. Whatever is needed to drive the 219.
Mode group: 4

Thanks

—- Edit —-
With each chip supplying 380 mA, it looks like 4 will provide 1520 ma ( Nichia specs 1500 max ).
So I guess it is 4.

This is a very novel give away. Nice thought relic38.
