This is an update for all those 1000s who mailed me after a few posts ago.
I have just collected 5 housings from my local CNC machine shop wanting to be ready for when the new leds arrive at chez Trout .
which if no bad things happen will be late Sept early Oct which is a bit of a bummer as I had hoped it would be before the darkness arrived.
The first one I will be building using some xpe leds this weekend for my own use untill the XPGs arive .
so a few pics to show what is happening
The Specs for the techy folks of the Lumen Liberator
6 XPG R4 leds if driven at 1000ma will push out 345 lumens each
6 carclo 10 mm square optics wide / medium / narrow / eliptical to mix and match to make a nice beam.
1 Maxflex driver to take the 14.8 volts from the battery and magic it up to 18 volts ish for the leds .
waterproof switch .
cable and connector to suit battery pack minimum requirement is a 14.8 volt li ion pack
the bar mount is in development at the moment and can only get better.
it will also be helmet mountable using some yet to be sourced velcro straps
No idea on the real price just yet but it wont be £50 but it will be the cheapest 2000 lumen light out there ( and it can be turned down so no whingeing about too much light).
If it turns out there are some folks interested in having one of these lights then mail me and we can go from there.
