CRX BumbleBee

Another small light I made today from this time electricians 20mm brass conduit fittings and some other bits & pieces to accompany the Plumbers version.

CRX Brass BumbleBee

This light is made from electricians parts as opposed to plumbers, powered by a 16340 cell with Nichia 219c D320 5000k emitter on a noctigon MCPCB and has a single mode restricted to 1A via resistor.
Length – 43mm
Width – 21mm
Weight – 57 grams (with cell)
Max – 310 lm

This sure is a stunner Steve

Or did you see the doctor, like Michael Keaton did in “Multiplicity”.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Another awesome flashlight CRX! What’s that black stuff between the brass? Is it some type of plastic paste? And I never heard of a QTC (Quantum Tunnelling Composite) pill before. Sounds interesting.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

So now we have a feral and a sterile light. Nice work. Smile

It’s a mix of JBWeld and a little graphite powder.
Yeah the QTC material can be useful in twisty lights like this where there is not really space for a driver, it’s not a perfect solution but works ok for variable output if everything’s smooth, just got to watch the cell voltage if not using protected cells.

Well, as much as I love the MT-G2 BLF-348 and the SRK (which I use every day, btw) I’d be stoked to own this one too. And I happen to be a licensed Electrician as well, so… Big Smile
