1 Watt Side Emitter Luxeon over driven at 660 mA in a SF turbo head. The power pak
is a McLux single 123 cell and a E2C adapter is used for coupling to the Turbo:
Below, the Turbo is hosted on a McLux "LongTail" and driven by 2xAA batteries
Below is a line up with the Turbo, E1e and a C3/P91 hosted on the LongTail with 3x123's
A mini camera tripod attached to the turbo:
For beam comparison:
Starting at top left and going clockwise, Arc LS, KL1, 5 Watt HD Turbo, 1 Watt Turbo
Notice areas of grid wash out as well as full illumination by 5W HD Turbo. At a distance,
The 1 Watt turbo has a slightly smaller beam diameter with a less defined edge compared
to the 5 Watt but it throws remarkably well!
It is misleading calling it a 1 Watt as in this case, it is drawing slightly in excess of 2 watts.
NEW HOME :
The 1 watt turbo module now resides in a black SF turbo head mated via the E2C to
a McLux 2x123 size power pack. The battery used is a Copia 168b Li-Ion. Due to the high
current and resulting Vf of the LED, the Bad Boy 660 is still in regulation with the 3.7 volt
