Got OStar?
« on: November 26, 2006, 03:46:34 AM »
I got a couple :)

The modified stock reflector had an unbelievable perfect beem at 2 feet but any farther had a pronounced donut hole. So I spent a few hours modding reflectors until I ended up with a Medium Stipple reflector which produces very nice beam.

Powered by 3x17670 driven by a MaxFlex.

This light has puts out some lumens without a doubt. It absolutely trashes a 3x UWOK Tri-Lux driven at 1000ma to each LED.

The 10W and 20W LEDs are manufactured by an indoor lightning firm from Taiwan. Yes, they are very bright indeed. I am trying to get the latest 50W LED sample from them. The 50W claims a 2500 lumen rating  8) but might not fit inside a flashlight host with its 4 cm heatsink.

This Ostar light of Mac`s decided to come hang out at my house. :D  It`s still traveling though! :(

Recieved a 15watt Ostar today. I`m hoping for a helping hand from Mac putting together a host for it. :-[

AW, I do like those monster LED`s! :thumbup: I`m getting ready to make a battery order from you. Feel free to send some LED`s too! :D
