Big Gun???? Like the 3 FM3H, FM Fat Body HID lights I just bought? :P  Red, Gold and Gold Plated! :evil6:

Ken - those are some beauties!!!!!!!!!


Once your cross that 2000 lumen barrier (HID/Torch/etc) LEDs are barely holding a candle.  I still EDC LED though - like others have said they do they job for most situations - hard to check on the sleeping son with the Torch....

Oh - EM -

you are now a hardcore flashaholic - anyone willing to brave sleet and snow to take beamshots deserves a :headbang: !

Thanks for the pics!

I hope that's your house and not the neighbors, or there's gonna be some pretty pissed off neighbors!

Yep, that's the Mack Shack.  The "Christmas Tree" is a grapevine tree that our wife decorates up for every season, Red for Valentine's Day...  Oh, the neighbors don't mind, they are all pretty much asleep by nine.  LOL, Mrs. Mack just rolled her eyes when I went out... :sleepy4:

Awsome pictures showing the differences between the lights pretty clearly.  I have to figure out if I can take some pix with my Canon PowerShot S45 outside at night.  Have to get out the manual to see what all those other settings are about.

I'm gonna run my new FM3H-2 Heads this weekend with all my 623, 625, and other bulb setups....but this reflector is a winner, and interchangeable with these old heads.  I posted my beamshot of two Elephants in that thread below to show how much it cleans up those artifacts vs. FM3H SMO model.

this light is fantastic.. i'm working on a similar solution using 24 cells to overdrive the 64657 to 28.0V... i believe this light uses the 64655.. adding resistance from the ckt .. probably getting about 23.6V nominal to the lamp for 9410/6120 Lumen... (the lamp is underdriven about 3% due to ckt resistances)... could be a little more or less depending if the tailspring is fixed (35-40 miliohm is a normal maglite tailspring).

Great stuff though.. i remember a 'tester Mag250' a while ago from mac customs.. this is far more polished and yahoo.

I will be using the same host but black... likely to also use 2/3A but have enough extenders to use 4/5A so it's a possibility.. but with 28.8V source i can hold a constant 28V to the lamp.. the numbers work out like this:

28V to the osram 64657.. it's a '9000L' lamp vs 10,000 but it's rated for 300Hrs meaning... 'over drive!'... planning to push it to 27% overdrive to 320W.. that number is partially based on a logical amount of overhead for 28.8V battery pack.. but mostly based on the re-rating of bulb lumens: it takes 27.97V to achieve 15440/10030L

Thanks for the encouragement! now that i've seen it done.. time to do some tweaking!

WOW, that sounds pretty cool.  I'm trying to get Mad Maxabeam make one of these 250W lights for me since Mac isn't going to do anymore.
