    ... and if we just ... My new triple light, The Beast!!!!

    Hi, here my new triple light, very, very easy of doing, how you can see, I hope that like us

    I have used a square tuve of 40x40mm and PVC tube of external diameter of 40x40mm too.







    Now glued the PVC tubes to the aluminium tube



    Inside view, I have used too a "custom" inside heatsink how you can see



    Glued the 3 leds to the aluminium tube (I have used 2 Cree Q5 and 1 Cree P4, I know that have was better use R2 leds, but was that I had )



    I make holes in the square tube and I have soldered the cables...



    Now I have solder the cables to the swich, drivers and power conection, I have used 3 drivers to can use a battery of only 7,4 volts



    Inside view, I have used too a "custom" inside heatsink how you can see



    Another view



    Rear view



    Another view



    Power supply put on the tube



    Inside view



    Switch put on the tube



    Inside view



    I have isolated the driver with....(sorry, but I don't know how it say in english "manguera termoretractil")



    Another view



    Another upper view



    Bottom view, I have used a H-24 spacer from Cateye



    Front view



    Well, I still don't have ended the light, already don't have put the lateral caps, but I hope ended soon and put any beamshot

    Yes, are the "new" kennan drivers



    And I have used this drivers in several DIY lights and work perfectly....I use a Li-Ion battery of camcorder of 7,4 volts to powering...

    I had a "old" kennan driver and die too....I think that this drivers are better do than the olds...

    For now I think that will use the light only with 1 switch to all leds, maybe that in the future I change the configuration to switch 1, 2 and the 3 leds...

    Now beamshot in the country
