I am selling my modded and once repaired Haikelite HT70. The stock version had an LED burn out in a few minutes. Dale[DB Custom] was kind enough to replace ALL Four SST-70 with ones that were Two bins higher. He also added Thermal paste, replaced 18G w/20G wires, bypasses in the tail cap and driver spring, put an Infineon MOSFET replacing the Vishay-Dale SIR800DP MOSFET and reflector holes modded to eliminate shadow in the hot spot.
It certainly appears that this newish QUAD LED can NOT handle heat/high current.I never used the light on MAX for more than 2 minutes at a time, then resting for 5 minutes. The light literally has about One hour of total use!
I know the Quad XHP-70 has also had some failures.
One of the new LED’S is starting to brown/burn. I have put $220 in this light b/w original price/shipping and new parts. That is with Dale doing the work for free! I do not know how to mod and I am not putting another penny in this light. Hopefully one of you guys can use it as a host. I am sure there are plenty of other LED’S that will suit it well.
I want to Thank Dale again for his efforts.
-$75 Shipped USPS Priority Mail. NOW $68 NOW $61
-First one to say I WILL TAKE IT.
-All deals FINAL.
P.S This light w/ original box will Not fit in a Large Flat rate box[$21]. It will be shipped with out the box and ALL other accessories.
Although It is useless to me and after a $250 investment[including 8 X MJ1] I am not about to give it away for nothing…I get $60 for it or it is basically trash! I could change my mind on that. This light has been nothing but a headache since I was the First one to post on the GB on November 8,2019.
-I wanted NW,kept getting FALSE dates for availability. After 2 months of that I decided on CW.
- Finally got the light on January 31,2020.
-Within 2 minutes the LED fried
-DB Custom was nice enough to upgrade and repair at No cost.
-After the second use the LED started to fry.
From what I know/experienced this LED does not seem to handle high current and heat well.
So,for modders this issue is no biggie. For me it renders the light useless.As I said in OP I am NOT sinking another penny in this light.It is either a Total loss or I get $61.
