Yes, I got them from CRX, I forgot to mention that :person_facepalming:
The aqua blue one already arrived with the split ring “embedded”, while the orange one (that arrived during the OL Contest due to the theme I had in my light) didn’t have that. So I picked 2 thin drills and added a split ring to hold it to the lanyard. That’s why they are so bulky in some parts :person_facepalming:
Black L2P with T head. Luxeon V2 4000k
Blue L2P. LH351D 5000k 90cri with cut and polished lens. I did it first time with this led and I can say that this is the easiest led to cut to dome.
Both have “Biscotti” 5A driver.
I think I used too long copper stripe for blue L2P because I had a serious problem to push it. I hope I won’t have to pull it out because I don’t know how to do it.
I did this build before “Barkuti described a problem with ”Biscotti” driver”:【convoy】S21E XHP50.3 HI available now - #2554 by Barkuti, and I didn’t even notice it. But everything works.
The EagleEye X3R is a micro-USB rechargeable flashlight…
Looks great MascaratumB! Did the driver drop straight in? What size is it and does USB charging still work? Tempted to pick one up.
Well, the led4power driver fitted in without issues, as the original driver also has 17mm diameter (with 2 small flaps that fit the “pill”, to avoid rotation).
There is no USB charging , because the new driver doesn’t have it. The charging port is implemented in the original driver, so when I took it out, it stopped working.
The rubber cover is still there, though (I may need to glue it to prevent eventual water infiltration).
Even without charging, this is a great host to make a DIY pocket thrower with an Osram led (Convoy 18350s tubes fit ).
It may be kind of hard to center it correctly in case you don’t have appropriate gaskets. The beam is not 100% perfect due to that, but it throws a lot
Although I don’t do some powerful throwers as you folks, I like to try some things.
Last weekend I picked my Convoy S2 w/ Osram KW CSLPM1.TG 2mm2 (w/ led4power driver set on 6A,SMO reflector), my EagleEye X3R w/ OSRAM KW CSLNM1.TG 1mm2 (w/ led4power driver set on 4.5A, SMO reflector) and my Convoy S2 with XP-L HI U6-3A+ (w/ 8*7135 Biscotti driver, SMO reflector).
Went outside and compared some beams!
