SOLD- 3- XML U2 Brinyte Light - Modified by OL - Use Three 18650 or Three 4/3AF NiMHs

SOLD - Brinyte BR3000 light that I have modded into a three U2 XM-L light using three V2 8x7135 Drivers (master/slave), with 3 - 4/3AF NiMH batteries.

br1

Please go to the build log for your questions.

 

This light uses three U2-(1B tint) XM-L leds with three 8x7135 Drivers (newer version 3040ma). The drivers are done as Master/Slave, per techjunkies method. The battery holder now has all copper plates in it, with gold plated springs. The batteries are 4/3AF NiMHs. The cosmetics mods were done by turning parts of the light into brushed aluminum and the rest painted with a textured brown, with clear on top.

 EDIT:  5/16/2012. I know this thing isn't going to move very easily, so here's the offer. If anyone wants this, but wants to use 18650 batteries, I will change the battery holder back to the original parallel 18650 holder style that is began with. Just let me know.

The price is $100  $85 $65.00 shipped Priority USA   OR   $115  $100 $80.00 shipped regular Airmail WorldWide. Just about a giveaway at this price!

Shipping is thru USPS -  Priority stateside or Airmail worldwide.

Payment is PayPal  valleau (enter the @ sign here) suddenlink.net

First person posting here and paying with PayPal, gets this light. It comes with the Batteries Included!

I'm curious how bright this is compared to being operated on Li-Ion?

 

I'm working hard to replace my dad's DRY with something more safe and less complicated in terms of battery charging, but I don't want to sacrifice much output.

Well, all I can tell you is each led is driven with a 3040ma nanjg driver. They are getting juice from the 4/3AF NiMHs, rated at 4200ma. I don't know.

I can't do any testing, since the only meter I have just screws up if I try amperage testing. I tried the way people tell me and all I get is a very dim (scary looking) blue light out of the leds and the meter jumps all over the place from 0 to who knows where, because it's jumping so darned fast. (ON every light I have tried it with). I don't know how people check anything with those stupid digital meters. I have not tried it with this light, because I'm scared to use it (the meter). I hate meters.

I know it is bright, but I can't take a good photo of it either, since I'm not good at that kind of stuff and I really have no place to take a good photo, so I don't have an answer for you, sorry.

 

ALSO, these are 4/3AF NiMHs and you would need a Hobby Charger for them.

Oh I didn't realize those 4/3AF batteries require a hobby charger. I apologize for wasting your time.

this charger available from eBay can fit 4/3AF (18650 sized) cells and has a 1.2V NiMH charging mode.  I bought one for a buddy of mine who purchased three lights from me.  Each light used a different chemistry cell and he didn't want multiple chargers.  This fit that niche very nicely, and for < $15 as I recall.

I will send the buyer an unmodded battery holder that allows for Li-Ion use, if interested.

Don't tear it down!! I'll take it.

Edit: Paypal sent 5/17 @ 1425.

Don't worry 'bout modding the battery holder-I can use it as is and I have a nimh charger.

I got it today. The pics don't do it justice! It's a beautiful job and definitely one of a kind.

It really becomes a blowtorch on 3 paralleled IMR's... the nice copper carrier is gonna replace a crap one in another DRY I have, so everything has a good home here. Cool

It's as bright as the regular DRY on high, so I'm well pleased!
