Default Wanted: Custom Tri-Star Rebel Flashlight

Not sure if anyone is up for this, but because it's an unusual custom job, I figured I'd try putting it up here. I'm looking for someone to make me a custom flashlight with a RGB Luxeon Rebel Tri-Star light source and a Carclo 44° Frosted Tri-Lens.

Here are some links to the components for reference:
Light Source: 3 Rebel LEDs Mounted On A 20mm Tri-Star Base
Selected Diodes: Red - 85 lm, Green - 145 lm, Blue - 58 lm
Lens: Carclo 44 Deg Frosted Tri-Lens With Holder

I'm interested in getting clean, white light out of the device, so I'm looking for the constructor to adjust the current to each diode to get a good color balance (if we can come up with a way for me to be able to do this, that would be even better). I will also need room inside to add an additional optics assembly (<5mm thick) directly on top of the lens (I can handle this part, as long as that part of the flashlight is easily accessible).

I know this is an strange request, but I intend to use this as a part in a scientific setup (and would like to save the time of having to construct it myself).

IF you are looking to Buy... Sell... Or Trade you are in the
right section...
But if you want someone to build a Flashlight perhaps
the Flashlight section would be more appropriate...

Lasersbee: Thanks for the advice. I saw this as buying someone's service (I wasn't looking for someone to do this for free), so I put it in the "Buy, Sell, & Trade" section. Do you think I should delete this thread and repost it in the flashlight discussion section?

RGB doesn't always blend into white well even when the are in a single emitter. Some RGB single emitters with a common frosted lens do an ok job.
With the 3 separated reflectors that you linked, it won't blend well at all. A lot of color bleeding at the edges. Plus the Tri-Star Base has the emitters too far apart for easy blending. I would actually grind the corners of the 3 leds to get the emitter lenses as close as possible, add a common frosted lens Then one reflector.

Couldn't guarantee "clean, white light" throughout till I tried, would likely be a little color bleeding at the edges. You could have a good white in the middle but the very edges might be a problem. Clipping the edges would perhaps take care of it.
I don't think I really would take the job but its interesting.

Have you estimated full component cost? Host? I see your leds + reflector: $21.43 +3.32
You wouldn't only want white correct? You would want 4 mode (red,blue,green,white) or each color fully adjustable for any color & every color with a preset (balanced) white mode? PWM or analog blending?

Default Re: Wanted: Custom Tri-Star Rebel Flashlight

HaloBlu: Thanks for the response. I wouldn't mind a little color bleeding on the sides, as long as there was a decent white in the center. The flashlight only needs one mode (balanced white). I chose a LED emitter with RGB diodes spaced like this to make it easier to engineer my custom optics layer which which is segmented into three parts, one for each diode.

I knew the cost of the LED + optics was at least $25. I imagine the host would make it a bit more than that, but I wasn't sure which one would best fit the unusual LED star and optics.

I'm sorry if I'm missing something, but why wouldn't you want all of the different color modes? Couldn't you just buy a white LED if you only want white?...

Default Re: Wanted: Custom Tri-Star Rebel Flashlight

Scottyzedinosaur: Thanks for the concern. I need separate color diodes, but not individual color modes for the scientific setup I need this for (and would prefer to save on the cost of the construction). If it would only cost a little extra to add a multi-mode feature, then I would be open to adding one. A red mode would let me use this as an astronomy safe red flashlight as well (that's only 2 modes though).

Oh okay. Well, good luck with your setup! i was just curious, because it would be cheaper to get a white LED. But I understand now
