been at it again diy lights
I've been at it as well…..
Click to enlarge. 7 XPGs in a spare Lumicycle halogen can.
Battery pack is 8 Nokia mobile phone batteries from 7dayshop. The LEDs are run at below max power such that the can runs comfortably warm. About 1000 Lumens.
Just needs some sealant around the top of the battery pack and its all done.Posted 7 years ago

Out of interest where do people buy the LED's and lenses from? I've mostly been using led-tech in germany but wondered if there's some good UK suppliers?
If you Google Cutter Electronics you should find the place most people from here get them from.
I'm just in the middle of run time testing a Lumi led conversion. Currently up to nearly 6hrs for two cans on high power, each with 3 xpg (i think) leds. well pleased so far!Posted 7 years ago
