FiveMega Custom 1D Light
« on: December 25, 2006, 11:24:01 AM »


FiveMega Custom 1D Light   

HA III  Gun Metal Grey with finned head and very grippy  grip.    :thumbup:



Nice and bright with an Axial 4 volt bulb running 4 Nimh in a FM custom battery pack with charging jack in rear tailcap.  Bulb is custom made costing $18 each. I fried my one and only turning the light on fresh off a charge…   :'(     Good host as Lux said, hot-driver running WA-1166 bulb with 4 Lith Ion in series, very very bright but short run-time...  8)



Also would make a nice LED mod light.

And he just did another run, this time with battery holder for 2 sets of parallel 2x14670 lithium ion batteries (4 total used) for 7.4 volt, which he is saying drives the WA-1111 at over 900L.  I am not familiar with that bulb.  His sale on these sold out in 12 hours though.  These are really sweet.

One of those on the way too.  ;)      Probably would have arrived Tuesday if the Post Office was open.  :(   


I have no sympathy for the day off as I had to work to make payroll in a small business...     :thumbdown:

I lucked out with one of these as well.  Can't wait to try it out.  It's a match for a 1.5 and 2D in the gunmetal gray--real nice finish and color.

Did your color of the new 1D match your previous gun-metal-gray lights.

My new one was on the purplish side...

I'm such a danged slow poke in my payment "system"--US snail mail (no PayPal) that I haven't gotten it yet unfortunately.  I just PMed FM and he hadn't even gotten my letter (and payment) yet so, I'm sure I won't have it until next week.  I do have an extra bezel that is the gunmetal gray HA which is a bit lighter and, on the purplish side as you have said.  I'm going to believe that the 1D I do get, being from the same batch as yours, will be lighter as well.  I'll let you know when it comes though.

I ordered my AW batteries on the same day as the FM payment, and have not received them yet....so you will likely have both at the same time, since FM has such lightning fast delivery.

As I posted on "that other forum" this little baby is very damn close to my best 1185, and 1D Mag66 (4x14500 series w/ AWR Hotdriver).  I really cannot tell a difference in brightness from the 1185 with throw and white walls.  You are very lucky if you got one of these 1111's promoted as 900L...even if a shade of purple different HA-III.

I ordered an extra battery pack of 4 X 14670 for the 1st 1D light that's pictured in first post. That light uses 4 x AA.

The tailcap will have to be shaved a little but should give more runtime and the ability to run WA 1111 bulb with that package. $6 bulb vs $18 bulb with more light...

Almost Mag85 output in a 1D package,   awesome...   :blinking:
