I need to report that i’ve placed CSLPM1.TG 2mm in GT mini using L4P 20mm 3030MCPCB.
I had protected 18650 nearby so i throw it in and ran the sucker. After few reflector adjustments beam was ok.
And now cute part, finally found IMR 18650 and replaced the protected cell but now ramping to HI is much much brighter. And then double click for Turbo showed angry blue!
Was a bit surprised cause some modders are running it hard in GT mini and i have to use protected cell 8/
Didn’t meassure amps on the tail cause of lack of time but i was curious did anyone else also got the same results and at which amps?
I’m not surprised, the PM1 has an extremely low Vf, lower than anything else (see the OP of this thread) so it will pull every bit of current a battery can provide. You depend on resistances in the system (internal battery resitance, springs, ledwires, FET) to keep the current restrained.
Thx djozz. I was too lazy to read all the way up but initial look at the first posts revealed what you just said. Will have to use it with protected only which is not bad since they are picking up dust these days.
I dropped a PM1 in my GT Mini, but if I put a 30Q in it, it turns blue on Turbo.
You have to use a lower drain cell, to limit the current at about 8A.
It’s not ideal, a new regulated driver would be way better but hey it’s cheap
I think my signature has a link to some posts about my Z1 build. In general, while it probably doesn’t have as high candela, it is more impressive than my MF02.
Edit: nope, but my post history will. I’m not on a computer right now or I’d find them myself for ya.
