    3rd build and getting a little better v.3up XPG

    Long time lurker around here, thought I'd finally contribute something -

    LEDs = 2 x 3up XPG's from ledsupply
    Optics = Narrow and medium Carclo's from ledsupply
    Driver = DX 1000ma, forget the model number
    Altoids can isn't permanent, I just needed a housing to mock things up for now

    Driven at 500ma for each side, I'm guessing around 800-900 lumins total after eff/lens losses. They did run a hot at first, but I extended the housing ~1/2" by pulling the copper end cap further back. I was a little surprised but this made a significant difference. Now they don't get above "warm" after 5 minutes of burn time with no air movement.

    Not the most efficient design in the world, but I wanted two very bright lights in two small & seperate packages.

    Don't ask about beam shot camera settings, everything was set to auto. Enjoy!

    Very cool. I like copper lights. How long are they? Where did you buy the bar mounts?

    About 5" right now. Mounts are $3.75 from DX

    Quality is alright - better than I'd expect for <$4, but I'd be a little disappointed if these were $20 CatEye's.
