Using Cree factory dedomed XP-L HI emitters in combination with the longer Rebel reflector...

The result is 1100 lumens in a super tight hot spot and amazing throw... :cool:

From Cree datasheet: "The XP-L High-Intensity LED is the first single-die LED to deliver over 100,000 cd in a 4-degree beam"


Video Demonstration:


That palm tree you see when I pan to the right is 200 yards away... :cool:






Here's a few pictures of the build...











Features:

* XP-L HI factory dedomed emitter on copper sink pad
* Custom heatsink
* Rebel reflector (longer)
* Multi-mode, user select 3 Amp driver (see below)
* Mag head turns for fine focus adjustment
* Super tight hot spot
* Long throw





Emitters:

The emitters are mounted onto a 10mm copper MCPCB...

Shown in the pictures, is 5000K... (my choice)

I have some 5000K, and 6500K XP-L HI emitters on hand, but can also get any of the following choices:

3000K 80+ CRI
4000K
5000K (neutral)
6500K (cool white)





Driver:

3 Amp (high mode) linear driver with low voltage protection...

Low voltage protection: At 2.9-3V the light will switch to an emergency low mode.

You'll love the Guppydrv option for this driver which allows the choice of 22 different 'mode group' settings for the ultimate in user customization. (see link below)

I like mode group 21 which gives me 4 brightness settings - with memory.

Here's the driver I'm using:

3D option:

Shown above is a cut down 'Stubby' single cell size using a Feilong 6000mAh 32650 Li-Ion cell. (I stock these shown here)

Another configuration that would be perfect for this driver is a 3D size using 3 X D sized NiMH cells...

I'm so confident you will never regret having it, that I'd bet my right arm...

Haaaa, you go ahead and keep your right arm, you might need it to keep making these cool builds .

As to the light it's definitely on my "want list" so we'll just have to wait till it rolls to the top. Got a JL 800mw 532 taking the top slot at the moment. So in time, ( not sure the neighbors will like it through) heeee, nice video. :)

Love great feedback... :)

I just received the flashlight last night and WOW! I can't believe how far and bright the throw is on this light! Totally pleased with the build; two thumbs up!

hi @jayrob. hope you're still around, I'm interested in one of these lights.

Yes these are my favorite of the Mag builds.

It's all the right stuff in a relatively small package.

I love the new driver with it's mode options, and the XP-L Hi de-domed emitter at 5000K is perfect. Add a Rebel reflector and the throw is amazing.

I still can supply the top notch Feilong 32650 cell as well if needed.

I'm liking the Xtar VC4 charger these days.

I can provide all if needed.

Just PM me for a list of options and if you want battery/charger, etc.

excellent. is there any way you could add the voltage meter like on my OG XM-L mag mod you built for me back in 2011? that thing is still a beast and going strong.

Not on this one because the Rebel reflector is longer and takes up the room where the voltage monitor gets mounted.

But not needed!

This driver that I'm using has built-in low voltage battery protection. :)

It will automatically kick down to a lower output if you have it on high. That's a warning signal that it's time to recharge the battery.

I wouldn't. 'If is isn't broke, don'f fix it'!

It would basically be a complete tear down. All new parts other than the switch. Voltage monitor and all would have to be taken out.

Better to keep that light and just add a new one to your collection. :)

Let me know in the PM if you also are adding the charger, etc.

Thanks!
