hello and greetings from Germany. My name is wolfgang.
I’m new here, but i have a small collection flashlights.
In this forum I have been reading about 2 years as a guest.
I’m also a member in the german Messerforum.net , section flashlights - modding area. There I have already presented some modded flashlights
In the last 2 years I have modded about 25 flashlights, from 7-LED Burner up to the very small 16350 - flashlights. This EDC’s are my favorites because I can use it practically.
High energy-efficiece and of course the highest possible number of lumens are in my focus.
My software is written in Bascom (Basic).
I use the Tiny13 and Tiny25 as a processor.
As emitter mainly XML (T and U Bin’s) and XP-G are used. XP-E and XR-E are represented only in old lamps or replaced.
I look forward to an interesting exchange of information.
this is right, i’m often use the 7135 Driver, there are the best for one-cell Flashlights. Many Driver using a PIC as processor, i’m change the processor to a Tiny from AMD. It’s not difficult - i’m using a stereo microscope.
With the Port-outputs i can head for single or blocks 7135. This results a higher efficience as pure PWM . Lithium cells also have a Peukert effect according to my measurements.
Is it hard to individually wire the AMC chips to the outputs of the Attiny13A?
I was just wondering why this was more efficient than PWM; I just looked up the Peukert effect and seemed to understand it, but I wan’t sure how single/multiple AMC’s were more efficient than all AMC’s on PWM.
This is quite simple, at PWM, the lithium cell ALWAYS charged the maximum current, even if only in short pulses. I manage each separately the 7135, then I can expect with currents of only 350mA, or 700mA and so on.That’s quite a difference to 3A with an XML, and brings in a 14500 cell up to 28 percent more run time. See the Celltest
Also, I Nearing my Sophomore[2nd year!!] as a flashaholic,However, this is my 2nd day on here! That is the only area that I am ahead of you! I understand the basics but get lost when people talk about all the technical stuff!!
Lastly, My girlfriends Mom was born in Kindenheim, just west of Worms and 2 or 3 hours[?] Southwest of Frankfurt!
many people in the U.S. have German roots. When I was 6 months in the U.S. on the road, I’ve met a lot.
Do not fear the lamp technology. I’ve also started small, and now I build complete their own lights. It’s amazing what you can to put everything into the light in technology.
Many of my friends think I’m crazy, but some also have several lights.
Now I am waiting for a delivery of Ric-CN .
These last two lights will probably be the last being. I have then 25 lights, and that is enough or….
that has nothing to do with flashlights, but JOHNSON cream (Penaten) is the fat from sheep’s wool. The cream sticks enormous, and is extremely water repellent.
You can also take to the preservation of car bodies. Then it is called “fluid film”. It’s not a Fake.
