So… you’re saying the softness of boobs might make them lose their zing after menOhmpause?

Let’s not even start on the puns related to electrical conductivity being measured in siemens.

In practical terms though, solder blobs are relatively easy to rejuvenate when necessary. Just re-melt it, maybe add a little solder, or file down the tip a bit (ouch), and it should be good as new. I’ve had to do this occasionally on blobbed drivers when the contact surface gets dirty. It may also be a good idea to clean the contact ring on a SRK-style light once in a while.

This kind of thing isn’t limited to just solder though. I also have to clean the battery (steel? zinc? nickel?) and contact post (aluminum) on L3 L10 lights periodically, since it gets thoroughly blackened during use.

I’m glad the Q8 has a thick contact ring, since it’s going to get worn over time regardless of what the battery tops are made of. With a thin ring like a regular PCB copper pour, wear is visible after just one use… but this thick brass ring will likely last pretty much forever.

I would not know, i rarely get to know one from the other sex good enough for me to ask for permission to examine her features that close.
And i am not the kind that jump at every little chance he get, that actually make me suspicious and work like a bucket of ice-water on me.

On a more serious note, would it be possible to make a contact ring with raised areas in the right places so flat tops would work in it too ?

Or am i overthinking again.

I think, flats tops will work with it now as is… sparkyDK. Smile

EDIT: If they are of proper length. Thumbs Up
…………
FINAL EDIT: … Sanyo GA flat tops will work because they are raised flattops.
Q 30 flat tops or any cell with flat tops like them… WILL NOT work.

My apologies for the initial incorrect informatio I gave. Facepalm

I’ve been watching this on and off since the beginning and it looks like it’s finally coming together into a really impressive light, well done and thanks to everyone involved in the design. Please put me down for one.

Do we have any rough timeframe on shipping the final version yet? Once approved are they ready to start manufacturing?

smile Sheriously, typical flat tops won't work, and not much you could do to the ring, because as you tighten the battery tube, the cell tops are looping round on the ring, and where they stop, nobody knows.

SANYO GA's are flat top, but unusual because the tops protrude higher than the wrapping - so they work, as long as the springs can handle the shorter length.

Or, if you simply use protected cells with the button already attached. As I recollect, somewhere above, it was determined that protected GAs with a good protection circuit did not seem to impact the light output vs an unprotected QA. Unless you are trying to squeeze every last lumen out of the light. But if this a concern, there are other batteries with higher amp capabilities you can blob and people can mod the light to try to make the whole power train act like a room temperature superconductor.

yeah i figured it would take some figuring out where the drum stop to make sure the batteries land on a “hill” on the contact ring.

But with design ( not the Q8 ) then i am sure they could figure it out and so the resulting flashlight could use any battery.
I am fully aware this are a done deal for the Q8 and that’s just fine i will just do something to the flat tops i have gotten for it.

But in future flashlights ( not least multi cell like the Q8 ) it would be nice if they would work with any type of the particular cells its build for.

But i have been wondering even if the “hills” was smooth for the battery’s to climb easy, the design of flattops and their wrapping might suffer damage over time as the batteries would have to go up and over those “hills” several times before they land in the final resting place.

Also i have been thinking if you should lathe those hills in the contact ring, or you could make do with just punching dents into the ring.

Now i am thinking ( i know i should be sleeping now but my brain will just not allow for that it seem )

How about if the 4 batteries in a light like the Q8 was staggered in a drum around a central pillar onto which you then screw on the end cap ?

This way the batteries should be stationary when the flashlight are put together, a bonus might be you can use bigger O-rings where the battery “drum” seal onto the LED end and the tail cap end, making for a bigger chance of a waterproof light and using larger more forgiving O-rings.

Off course this design will mean that the battery drum will just be held on the LED end with the friction of the O-ring when the end cap are unscrewed for battery change.

Holy sh,,,, ee now i better stop cuz now i have tail cap contact ideas too, i better go for a drive and get me some sugar water to get the creative juices going again.

sparkyDK, this is an already-solved issue which came up just a few pages ago. It simply requires a different design:

http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1133299#comment-1133299

The Q8 will not use this method though; it uses a SRK style ring instead. So… make sure the positive terminal is higher than the cell wrapper.

On a more serious note, would it be possible to make a contact ring with raised areas in the right places so flat tops would work in it too ? Or am i overthinking again.
I think, flats tops will work with it now as is… sparkyDK. Smile EDIT: If they are of proper length. Thumbs Up

smile Sheriously, typical flat tops won’t work, and not much you could do to the ring, because as you tighten the battery tube, the cell tops are looping round on the ring, and where they stop, nobody knows.


SANYO GA’s are flat top, but unusual because the tops protrude higher than the wrapping – so they work, as long as the springs can handle the shorter length.

Thumbs Up …. My apologies sparky. I was thinking only of the GA’s (because that is what I am using) and totally left out the test of the important facts about most all other flat tops. Facepalm

Again… my apologies. I shall now put on the Dunce Hat & sit myself in the corner the remainder of the night for the incorrect info I gave… that in all likelyhood could create confusion…… Facepalm .. Crying

Thank goodness Tom caught it quickly & posted the correct info. Smile

I’ll edit my post also..

Thats okay and not the cells i got for the Q8, i have a set of Sony’s VTC6 and a Set of the brown LG’s ( HG2 ), both flat top style i will have to do something about.

I am not quite sure if the GAs will be good without something done to them, as they have no button the spring should squease them less tight, so maybe a thud on the end cap would make connection go.
Then again as i understand the Q8 that shouldent matter if one or two cells momentarily get disconnected.

Man i cant wait to get my hands on this thing, just ordered a new sleeping bag tonight, so aside for a pice of tarp i am ready to go play survivalist in the forests of Denmark.
Forrest’s that will not be so dark when i am around, with or without the Q8 Wink

I’m number 340 on the list.
Someone from work wants a stupidly bright light and I think will qualify.
Can I be added again so I get another one?

I am happy that the light is “finished”!
But now that the luminus sst-40 is out (with real low Vf) i find it really a pity that we did not go for the dualfoodprint leadboard. Is there a plan for a GB in place for a dual leadboard?

You can make a plan, I once had a quote from Kerui Electronics for about 8 euro per board, 50 minimum. The contact is Sundy and she is on BLF under the name “leo ou”. The boards that they make seem high quality (my N119 boards come from there).

Hi, FNG here.  Can you summarize the perceived advantages of what you're suggesting and outline any other changes that would be required?

 

Thanks!

The advantages of a Dual footprint quad LED copper DTP LED board are that you can use all kind of LEDs in this light. At the moment you can only use LEDs that use a XP footprint like XPL, Nichia 309/319A, Nichia 219c. . .. But no XM-L LEDs no SST-40 no XHP50.2 . . .
The new ledboard would allow you to use this LEDs. Some (with different Voltage) would require a driver change and spring PCB mod, some like XPL2, XM-L, SST-40 and some more would only require a LED change. And you may ask why would someone do this?
Many reasons! To get a more prefered color temperatur, or LEDs with a higher CRI, or more output, better throw . . .
Simple it gives you an easy option to mod your light.
