MTN Electronics: LEDs - Batteries - Lights - Chargers - Hosts - Drivers - Components - 1-Stop-US Source

I’ve turned my area and then some upside down, no carrier. I guess the ants are building a mega light or something….

Richard I’m glad to see your carrying the little 26350 cells. I’ll try and spread the word that they are now easy to get.

My little Supfire mini L6 runs great on them. Lots of output!

Thanks.

Speaking of the 26350 cells…question for Richard, or anyone. Could I run an xhp35 with a FET driver and four 26350s from Mountain Electronics? I know that the xhp35 can get burned out by too much current, but since the 26350s are only rated at 4 amp continuous, maybe they would be a perfect match. Wishful thinking?

I’m trying modify my Haikelite HT35. Or would I be better off running the MTN-MAX 1A-6A buck driver at 2.5 amps with two 26650s the four 26350s?

I know people have built Convoy L2 and L6 with xhp35 and 4 26350, but I can’t remember if it was with a fet driver or not. You do get more voltage sag compared to 4 26650 cells. Sorry, I don’t have any links.

My mini L6 runs on 2 26350 and I got 7.3 amps from them powering an xhp70. So they can do more than 4 amps.

How would the MTN-MAX 1A-6A buck driver produce 12 volts if you only use 2 26650? I think it would need 4 cells.

That is helpful, JasonWW, thank you.

It takes too long for me to search, but I found this from EasyB:

That’s pretty impressive.

You’re right, either setup would take four 26350s, my mistake. I also want to run an xhp70 with two 26650s and a FET. Typed too fast, got the two projects mixed up.

Thanks for the link as well.

Richard are you going to start carrying the sst40 led?

May be caused by 7135

That’s the infamous “raptor claw” vs “crappy sailboat” distinction…

Actually, we adjust the firmwares for each new batch of 7135s we receive, so that isn't the issue. We buy them thousands at a time direct from the manufacturer so we don't have to change that often, but each batch is slightly different so we have different moonlight PWM levels we adjust for each batch.

FTR, I replaced the springs in the TK75 carrier for manxbuggy1’s M6, bypassed all 8 springs, and it now makes 13,558.5 lumens at start on freshly charged button top Samsung 30Q cells. :smiley:

Richard is a nice guy… I ordered 8 of 26650, enova all-88 charger, d4 and etc last night… I paid the $23 shipping which I think it’s ridiculously high… lol . He shipped out the order very fast this morning… he also refunded $12 shipping… so the actual shipping cost is $11… I am very happy it…

Richard is the guy who actually take care of his customers…

Thanks Newlumen.

I know that everyone that has been around a while knows this, but if you are charged significantly more than what it costs to ship your order(s), we will refund the difference.

And shipping will likely be EXCEPTIONALLY fast. I placed an order for 3 LM2596 chargers Tuesday, and got them Thursday. I have to pay Amazon a hunnert bucks a year to get two day service. Mtn just does it.

Thanks.

A C8 with a SST40 and bistro…? Sweet…! Thank you Richard, that’s two of your builds I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on.
I love the way you build, spring bypasses and screw down on the mcpcb, that SST40 heats up and I thought about using the TM but when I went to set it up I started a timer and at over 5 minutes and inside with no air movement and I can still hold the light it is fine without TM especially if outside,
I’ve wondered about these emitters and now I know, I think they are great, really nice build RMM, thanks again…!
Really is Awesome, 2000lms… fully agreed, hot spot a bit fat, wondering if a butterfly centering ring will place that SST40 a bit further up into the reflector, it’s not bad at all as is that’s for sure and normally I’d never buy cool white tint but this tint is different, this is a really nice cool white maybe 6000k…? or is it my imagination.?.

Sent you the 3 D4 heads for re-flash finally just the other day with a note to hold the D1 I have on pre-order and if able send all together for return shipping.
Put in a couple a bucks to cover the cost of solder or return shipping, do not return the money…!! Please.!
Thank you Richard, oh, also got the Shockli’s today and two nice cases as well, very fast shipping as always and always a pleasure doing business with you sir…

I received my enova all-88, emisar d4, shockli 26650 button top and some windyfire today. Thank you for the fast $11 shipping.

Thanks everyone! Have a great weekend!

P.S. For those of you who pre-ordered the D1, we have received some of the lights and after testing will begin shipping them on Monday. We expect that all pre-orders will be shipped by the 22nd, but some of you will be receiving your lights sooner than that.

Hi, Richard. I received 2 of these from you this week. Thank you for carrying them. At 26.7mm they are a little fatter than some other 26650’s but they fit my DQG tiny 26650 3th perfectly. 2 days from order to arrival in Cali is outstanding.
Thanks again…

I didn’t see any mention of the driver design or how much power it has. Is it a constant current driver or fet?
