New build. mattaus silver coated copper P60 pill triple.
« on: January 03, 2015, 09:46:58 AM »
This light was built entirely around mattaus P60 triple pill. This piece of copper was machined to perfection and the coating was totally blemish free. The pill was built to take heat away from the leds so why not a light to further get rid of heat from the pill. As usual I had no idea where I was heading with this light at the start except it would have the triple Nichia again on copper and TIR to suit all from IOS powered by a 3 amp 7135 driver and 18650 battery. I had in my mind that I wanted a smooth looking light to match the pill.

mattaus's pill complete with leds and driver installed.



The head of the light. The fins are about 1.5mm in width 3mm deep.



A picture of the bezel along side the end of the head where the pill resides. The pill pushes in with a very light drag. Heat is transferred very rapidly to the head and the heat spreads rapidly to the rest of the light.



The tailcap.



And finally a battery tube.



Put lots of pieces in a pile.



And you have one of these.



Complete with finger print.  :-[



And finally a couple of pictures with another couple of triples.



A big thanks to Matt for making the effort to have these made and offer these pills to us. Fit and finish was perfect and all components fitted installed with absolute precision.


My favorite shot.  :)
When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.

That's beautiful! Wish I could afford the pill, though it looks like he's sold them all anyway.

Thanks. Yes they have all gone. Matts having a break from the lights for awhile due to time constraints.

Heres a few night shots. The distance to the far shrubs is about 20 meters.

The first is low being .15 Amp.




Medium. 1 Amp.



Hi. 3 Amps.



And for comparison an XML at 3 Amps through a 22mm 10 degree TIR.
