Looks impressive. Mind not to go through customs with that suitcase.
Haha, imagine that
“No, it’s not a bomb, it’s just a very weird flashlight”
Anyone know if it possible to buy a luxeon V 4040 gasket anywhere?
Tool AA with E21A 5000K kit from virence.com:
Tried M21A (stock 6A driver) with dedomed SST-40 from kaidomain. I didn’t like the result, so after beam shots I put 4040 white flat instead (and it is awesome now)
One more build post for now.
It’s C8+ and SST-20 4000K from kaidomain (fb4?). Throws almost as good as GT mini with low CRI emitter.
Led4power driver with thermal enhancement kit for Convoy S2+:
Beam shot - GT mini WW (measured lux: 38), 4040 white flat M21A (lux: 100), C8+ SST-20 (lux: 33%)
Moded a deodorant cover to make a GITD diffuser for my Wuben T70.
I applied some Montana GITD spray and a piece of GITD tape in the interior for a better fit on the bezel!
Changed the outter ring of purple peds to orange on this E07.
I fixed my sw45 triple RRT-01!
replacement driver from Jetbeam
my first mod ever
and now I own all sorts of modding tools and supplies…
I feel like dancing!
major thanks to pinkpanda, CRX and Clemence for the inspiration,
and to moderator007, SKV89 and pol77
for all the support and encouragement to learn to roll my own…
First mod? That is worth dancing about! Great job JS. Something tells me this may just be a beginning… (modding is addicting!)
Today I modded my PulseLabz Guardian Series Signature Gaming chair.
I'm not a gamer and I'm not a small person. Actually it was more of a repair than a mod. The gas piston failed after the first week. Two weeks later I had a new piston in hand. The kind people at Pulselabz also provided some written instructions.
"The first step is to separate the piston from the tilt-lock mechanism above. To do this, first raise the chair to the highest position you can with the height adjustment. Then find a friend to help you, both with one leg pushing down on the metal base and the other leg on the ground, wiggle the chair upwards and downwards in a rhythm, with one arm holding the height adjustment lever in the open position and the other arm holding the backrest until the piston separates from the top.
The second step is to separate the piston from the metal base. As your old piston can go in the trash, the method we came with will damage it but its okay. What you can do is take off all the casters/wheels, and then find a concrete parking spot block, then holding the metal base, hit the piston really hard against the concrete parking block and it should pop out upwards
Let me know if there's anything I can help with."
I chose another route:
Too many mod threads so now i’m re-posting to my favorite one, sad day:
Got one of my dark blue 0.3mA aux boards installed today. Compiled a hex file with aux support and the latest Anduril features like manual memory, two level lockout brightness, soft reset, etc. The version with MCU support isn’t the most simple option but I did want the ability to turn it off.
It’s sliced LH351D 5K 90CRI LEDs also.
Dark blue board looks great Do you have maybe beam shot comparing sliced LH351D 5K with other 5000K led?
This one is the longest build with many failures so far.
Long time ago I ordered S2+ CU. The plan was kiriba-ru triple with Luxeon MZ 5700K. I wanted patina, so coating was removed, not ideally, but it’s not bad. The light was nice, but kinda green and extremely floody. So it went to rebuild box.
New idea was 4*E21A 4000K & 5000K mix and kiriba-ru pill. Wiring those little boards is quite challenging. Tried four times and finally destroyed MCPCB. Thankfully I had one spare. So I reflowed those little yellow guys to their new home.
I wanted to use 60 degree optic. Some time ago in another build I glued the plastic holder (which came with the optic) to the MCPCB. This time I couldn’t do it. Does not matter how hard I tried, the glue was all over leds. I cleaned the board and decided to use gasket for XM size leds.
Next day, finally:
That’s an interesting mod g_damian!
Which flux bin did you use for both the 4000&5000K?
And how many lumens does it make?
I used sm503-D220-L2-R9080 and sm403-D240-M1-R9080 from virence.com. According to 4x E21A 9080 CRI output test by Texas_Ace - Amazing tint and good output those leds should make 1585 @5A, so probably around 1200 OTF.
Not much of a mod, but it looks pretty.
I swapped the battery tube and tailcap from a D4V1 Ti onto the head of a D4V2:
It ends up around 2,400 lumens with a ~4.05V VTC6
After slicing and using a 10511 optic:
CCT is between 3978K and 4130K regulated and 4371K turbo (FET)
Duv is between –0.0015 and –0.0007 regulated and –0.0006 turbo (FET)
The hot spot is larger and more “even” than an SST-20 but less intense. A little more intense than 219 in a clear narrow optic I guess?
It’s kind of nice how it tracks a bit warmer and lower Duv at the lowest modes and gets a bit cooler and very close to BBL at higher modes.
Yes but it’s a lovely green.
