    MCE vs. XPE in the deesta housing

    I have only built XR-E lights in the past. Planning to buy one of the D-Star housings from deesta. My question is, how do they compare: light output, ease of working with, battery consumption, etc.?

    [edit] D`oh, i should have read the title! .........
    ok, i`ve got the MC-E version
    troutie did a tutorial (somewhere) which was easy to follow and highlighted any problems, easy peasy i thought!
    its wired 2p6s running on a maxflex
    max current to each emitter is 600ma
    runs on a 4 cell li-ion
    at full tilt readings were
    battery voltage 15.93volts
    current ............1.49Amps
    ...... 23.7watts
    Bright??? ohh yes!

    Thanks for posting this GBCircle, I was thinking of the same question. Deetsa's housing is really nice (and it looks like his new light is going to be just as great or better). If anyone has a Deesta light using XPE's I too would really like to hear your thoughts on the build.
