*****Eagle Eye X6 heatsinks ******CLOSED RUN #3 STARTED

Hey guys im just posting this thread on any interest on having more X6 heatsinks done ??? i would need 50pcs  either of copper or aluminum or half and half

 

here is the original thread http://budgetlightforum.com/node/36881?page=8#comment-761762

and i can have the made like Mitko ONLY IN ALUMINUM though where they are 2.8mm higher so u dont need to use the stock glass lens for little extra cost, so post any thoughts on the size change and what u like to order thanks

 

OR

Raise the height, but keep the same diameter so it stays snug.

Anyone knows if these same spacers can be used in the X6R?

sounds good to me if the height is raised, more material the cooler the LED Smile

I’ll take one (1) aluminium triple heatsink Smile

The extra height sounds good to me.

Yeah I didnt jump in last time, but I think I will this time.

If the optic sits nice in the head of the X6, then I agree in eliminating the need to use the lens as well.

With plastic lenses a lot depends on how you care for them and how much you care about them. They will scratch and wear more than glass if tossed around but are less prone to cracking. The weakness in these particular optics is in the legs which can snap off, mostly from shearing forces when installing or removing the bezel. That said, I still like the cute -3 over every other multi emitter optic I’ve tried in the past 7-8 years. 35mm(MR-11) may or may not be as ubiquitous as p60’s (closer if you include older bike light designs using MR-11 halogens) but it’s certainly a well tested platform size even before the X-6 came along. Cutter has been marketing a DIY bike light using them for years. I guess I come down on the side of the fence where putting a glass lens(no matter how clear)in front of an optic is redundant. A reflector absolutely must be protected since it cannot be safely cleaned whereas an optic while never again being as good as new can easily be re polished without removing any coatings.

If you build it they will come.

I'm in for probably 3, described with raising the height, I'm fine with that. Not sure yet for copper or alum, or combo.

I’m in for 1 definitely (maaaybe two, but don’t quote me on it).. not picky on copper or aluminum. (Preferably whichever is cheaper; i have too many flashlight projects that are sucking up my money hahaha). I like the raised height idea.

Ally cheaper, lighter, and the benefits of copper I believe outside the MCPCB have shown little gain? IIRC, copper can absorb more heat, but ally sheds the heat better?

But Id be down with whichever too.

I’d be in for two as I missed out on the 1st run. Ta.

Aluminium would be fine.

No better way to get rid of extra parts is to sell them as kits to guys in the USA :bigsmile:

Not trying to peer pressure you into taking on extra work… it was much easier for me to just buy everything from one person (you) as a “kit” ya know…

Edit: I’m still in for a solid 1… but definitely not two. Thanks!

I’m with Yourrid as to taking no preference in material, as long as the Al isn’t more than/as much as the Cu.

I am interested in two pieces of Aluminium (without the stock glas lens) if its possible to ship to germany.
Whats the price for two with shipping to germany?

It fits the X6 with this MCPCB http://intl-outdoor.com/noctigon-xp32-advanced-direct-thermal-path-coppe... and this optic http://intl-outdoor.com/ledil-cute3ss-triple-led-optic-lens-p-851.html , isnt It?

Agree. Would you still sell the kit to those outside USA? Its a chance to offload those parts. I would be interested to get a kit if its possible.

Any ideas what out-of-country shipping would cost? I didn’t jump last time because it was more than the parts.

Either Canada or HK (HK preferred, but whichever is cheaper).
