Imagine meeting that bad boy coming the other way. You would be blind for weeks.
A thing of beauty for the diy light builder
JFC now for MM there will be to limit for lights, a minimum one and a maximum one.
As I said before this is not about having the lumen war winner
this is about quality of light
and running 16 emitters at low current is more efficient lumen wise
than 4 emitters at full chat.
and a pic to back up how nice it is this is at very low power
I'm impressed ... I think I need one
thats the one trout yes
Just to update all who have said they want a housing
I am up to 25 confirmed from on here and MTBR so I am going to ask Steve to do me 30 housings for a few spare and one for me
I hope to know when they will be done very soon and will let everyone know when I know.
Thanks for all the interest.
Can I pre-book a set for March, please? I'm skint and need to wait till then for any cash available. A full set, the one for idiots, if I can.
BTW It's blooming impressive this light of yours.
sure email me . it is on the picture of the light .or in my profile.
By the way how do I get my email into my name
Sh1t the bed! That 'snow melter' is truly not-right! Does it not get mega hot?? You could cook a kebab with that.
Ha HA nope heat has a direct thermal path to the stem and bars which keep it pretty cold
So you get heated bars?
BTW, email me with bits you might need; I'll see what me mate can do.
Re: direct linking to email.
It should work, mine does.
Hi Update to all you guys who have ordered one of these housings from me.
I just had this email from Deesta the guy who is CNCing them
I've had to order extra material due to the number you want of the XPE's. I'm doing my casings today and tomorrow so should hopefuly get those out over the weekend Due to the time I need to do your csing, I'm not going to be able to do them until the middle of next week :(. We've got an urgent job that needs to be done but yours will be next. I'll be able to do one with the modifications on for you to play with though, so will get that to you as soon as.
Hope that's ok?
Also no news on dispatch on the stuff from cutters yet
I dont know if these fires are affecting them .
Thanks for being patient
Your lights might be all clever and stuff but I think these have a certain charm
Like it, light, floatation device, emergency firewood. Now thats thinking outside the box
Is it too late to order one?
How much would the batteries and charger be in addition?
no I am having extra housings made so still available
batteries you could mail smudgemtbuk at aol dot com
or use Turboferrets li ion holder and 4 li ion rechargerables
WCA are you safe with powertools
is that light for the bamboo bike some one posted on the old forum.
So basically all in it would be something like this
Batteries 4 x AW 18650 3.7 V RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM BATTERY = £47.80
(I don’t know if the above are top of the market batteris or not, these are half the price so would reduce the cost by circa £20)
Charger 1x ULTRAFIRE WF 139 DUAL BAY CHARGER = £17.95
All from [/url]
Battery holder 1 x Turboferret holder = £12.00
Battery pouch 1 x Turboferret puch = £8.00
All from [url= http://www.turboferret.co.uk/buy.php
Trout’s light self build = £120.00
Total (excluding p&p and fixing/holder) = £205.75
Would you provide a wiring diagram, despite having an A-Level in electronics I don’t feel overly confident about building? What kind of fixing would you use for bars I don’t really fancy drilling them?
Sounds about right and there will be a howto going up very soon.
Bar mount no problem you can have a M5 threaded hole for a lumi mount or the electron mount from chainreaction .and the housing comes with the bolt also .
mail me for more details.
yikes, Thats expensive for 4 Li-ion cells. If you want to go for a 'battery' rather than cells please email me.
I can build in either 2.6Ah or 5.2Ah capacities. (I only use high quality cells)
seem to have lost the ability to write links properly
Just visited the troutelight site.
Good work there Trout.
