So while I have been figuring out what I am going to order to make my achesalot style light, I decided to pick up a Super Spot to keep me a bit safer while just on the road these days. However, now I have been bitten by the mod bug...
Upon taking a quick look at the light here are some thoughts and questions:
-It runs on 4 1.5V AAs, looks to be in series, so would that be equivalent to a single 6V battery?
-Just going on looks, I think a Seoul P4 (bare emitter) would be the easiest to fit.
-The fit will be tight though, there is a recessed spot in which the current emitter fits right into on the heatsink. (I guess I could file it down though.)
-It is supposedly a 1W light.. and from what I have heard it uses "Gen. III 1W Luxeon Star" emitter. (Does the P4 have comparable dimensions?)
-What resistor would I want to look at in order to drive a P4 at a decent current? (By the looks of it, I should be able to cut out the old resistor and solder in a new one.)
Any tips/help would be great!
(If pictures would help, I might be able to put some up later.)
