I thought I'd start a new thread, as Matt's old thread was about a single XP-G light.
I've got a light in progress using Matt's housing and sled idea.
All I'm waiting for now are the electronics.
The top row shows:
-Lexan outer cover- to be siliconed in place.
-1" tubing main housing, still to be cut to length once I measure final electronics.
-L-shaped bracket, which will get 3M Dual-lock on the bottom and velcro over the top. The light should mount well on a helmet and tilt nicely with this. It may also sink some heat.
-End cap with obligatory fins.
Bottom row shows:
-Regina reflector, to be cut down (Also an 18mm DealExtreme reflector on the way to try)
-Mini-Sled cut from 1" tubing- it's a nice tight fit in the back of the housing.
-Waterproof momentary switch
-Magicshine cable with cable gland stolen from old cell phone charger.
- XM-L emitter on a 20mm board, which goes on the front of the sled. Probably take forever from Dx, but they say they've packed them for shipping.
- L-Flex, which goes on the back of the sled front, behind the XM-L. - probably take 4 days from Taskled.
- Protected batteries and charger - already have 1S2P holders
The end cap will be JB welded to the back of the sled, to allow an O-ring seal between sled and housing for easy 1-screw disassembly.
Matt was kind enough to send some heat sink too, which I may mount later if needed.
I should have parts for more lights after this, once I decide whether I prefer the XM-L or a Quazzle triple.
