I’m new to the forum so lets just start off with crazy stuff,
I see by a quick search I’m not the first to have this idea (my kind of people) but I never saw a post that it was actually done. (But there are a LOT of posts!)
So if it’s been done I guess these questions are moot.
The idea is….
Using a BLF / Atrolux / Convoy host with 2 well matched 18350 batterys for higher voltage.
Is it possible to use a “QLITE 6V+ Zener Mod - For 6V MT-G2/XHP” driver and a
“Cree MT-G2 Q0 5000K 6V LED on 16mm Noctigon Copper MCPCB” to make a small monster?
Bad heat issues! (I know it would be a short use light but just how short before it self destructs or you cant hold it?)
Could the 18350’s handle it? I have Xpower’s max pulse 10A. How long would they last?
LED fitting through the reflector even with the centering ring removed.
If the bottom of the reflector hole would need to be enlarged would that destroy the optics?
Would the reflector “bottom out” against the LED. Or would it need to be shortened too? (once again optics)
Domed or de-domed? De-domed would solve some “fit” issues.
Any of the hosts have a “Better Reflector” or “body” for this idea?
For the driver, add 7135 chips to increase driver current? how many? All 8?
A guess at total lumen output with bypass mod and extra 7135 chips?
One more side question…
I am planning to do the spring bypass mod (front and back) and was wondering if solder wick would work for the bypass?
Perhaps even wrapping the spring with the wick and soldering at the top and bottom. It would move quite well and look good too.
I have it on hand, but would it handle the load? It wouldn’t be carrying the brunt of the load as the spring would still be conducting as well.
Or is the load shifted to the copper being the path of least resistance. Not my area of knowledge.
Whew, that’s a lot of questions and thoughts.
Feel free to break this up any way you see fit to answer.
Thanks for your help and experience,
