**LED Lights Lunatics

  • Using eneloops for my 1xAAA keychain light eversince I got hooked to eneloops,
    Highly recommended.
  • Any suggestion po na FL ang Brightness: Max Output 8000 Lumens tapos ang batt. ko po is 26650 li-on operated?.. Aiming for my first LED FL. Thanks.
  • @ian thanks. tsaka na ako bili ng eneloop pagdating ng mga FL. btw, ano ba ok na charger for eneloops? im not sure if my sanyo charger can accommodate AAA. puro AA lang kasi mga rechargeable ko.
  • btw, ano ba ok na charger for eneloops?


    Sanyo MQR06 or my personal favorite the MDU01. avoid using Nitecore UNintellicharger for eneloops


    Max Output 8000 Lumens tapos ang batt. ko po is 26650 li-on operated


    well just to put things in perspective this hulking Olight Marauder X6 puts out "only" 5000 TRUE lumens and requires a heavy belt-mounted battery pack.

    there are certainly plenty of flashlights that put out 8000 FAKE lumens hehe

    there is a separate LED bulb thread. pang flashlight, headlamp and lanterns lang dito
    <click here for link>

    but to answer your question, LED's are designed for rapid on-off usage. Some flashlights with a low mode produce less lumens in low mode by the simple expedient of turning the LED on and off hundreds of times a second

    the mythbusters already busted your mom long ago

    Bulb Longevity

    They tested one final element of this myth: frequently turning lights on and off decreases their life span, thus leading to greater costs. Grant setup a timer and relay to turn the bulbs on and off repeatedly every 2 minutes. After six weeks, only the LED bulb was still working. Based on this test, they extrapolated that it would take five years of ordinary usage to cause the bulbs to burn out.

    * busted *

    using a LED bulb in a place where its on for a long time (not the CR) will minimize the ROI. But these days with bulbs outside of CDRKing costing 120 pesos for 3 watts (suitable for the smallest CR in my house but not larger ones) its now not too much of a problem too use it in a CR where infrequent usage lengthens ROI

  • salamat sa reply sir pcruztemp. sorry nga po pala at nahijack ko pa ang thread, di ko napansin na di kasali bulbs.
  • magbasa ka doon. baka mali ang mabili mo na bulb or something. you might learn something
  • Purpose: EDC home use pag brownout, Bike Head Light
    Q: ano kaya sa dalawang ito ang maganda at magkano kaya ang estimate na magagastos ko sa bawat isang unit. kasama na yung shipping at custom fees. please suggest kayo ng method kung pano ang order-payment method-shipping etc. (1st time ko oorder online kung sakali - noob po talaga at gusto ko sana makatipid.)

    - di ko alam kung enough na ba yung 300lm ng T2 or kailangan 500lm ng T1 for bike headlight.

    never pa ko nakahawak ng ganitong flashlight at wala akong idea sa lumens. ang flashlight namin yung nabibili sa ace hardware na maraming led tapos built-in ang battery.
    - sa charging wala problema dahil pwede sa 18650 at AA ang charger ko.

    Solar Force T1 (1x18650) <click here for link>
    Runtime: (1pc 18650 battery)
    100% (505 lumens): 120 mins
    50% (202 lumens): 5 hrs
    10% (50 lumens): 30 hrs

    Solar Force T2 (2xAA) <click here for link>
    Runtime: (2pcs AA battery)
    100% (300 lumens): 60 mins
    33% (105 lumens): 2.5 hrs
    10% (30 lumens): 15 hrs

    edit:
    Ang hanap ko ay more on flood light with a mid range throw.
    I need better visibility ng surroundings and path ways na mabato sa gubat at pwede rin magamit sa bahay
    under 27$ pero good quality.
    baka meron po kayong alam na mas maganda dito sa mga pinagpipilian ko

  • If you have 18650 battery sa T1 na kayo mas mahaba ng runtime kesa T2.
    if wala naman sa T2 na kayo since AA lang ang battery na gagamitin.

    T1 = $26 + $2 (normal shipping 15-30days) + php 50 = 1246
    T2 = $23 + $2 (normal shipping 15-30days) + php 50 = 1108

    note: (1usd = 46php) ang ginamit ko.
  • @sledger17:
    thanks.
    bale 26$+2$ (28$) lang ang babayaran ko sa seller then yung 50pesos sa post-office na kapag i-claim ko ?

    paano kaya ako oorder nito at magbabayad ?
    sa website kasi after registering. nag-add to cart at checkout ako. tapos nakita ko isusubmit lang yung order.
    hindi siya nagtatanong ng payment methods or kahit anong may kinalaman sa bayaran. kaya ni-cancel ko nalang.

    Wala akong paypal at credit card.
    sa mga nakabili na sa solarforce ano po payment method niyo at pano proseso sa pag order. thanks
  • madami naman debit card na pwede sa online. get one
  • @tpc_jayem safest talaga ang thru paypal kaya need mo ng EON card ng Unionbank or eprepaid card ng BPI para malink mo sa paypal. Kakakuha ko lang ng eprepaid card ng bpi almost 1 week lang ang inabot yun nga lang may fee na 500 php thru online ako kumuha or pwede din maki ride ka na lang sa friend mo na may credit card if may option na pang credit card payment.
  • yun nga lang may fee na 500 php


    one time fee yun? mas mura ata ang smart money if i remember correctly
  • ^^ uu sir tama ka
  • Wow nabuhay ulit thread after ten days. For single 18650 light i would suggest any p60 host with dropin, modable, with available parts. Daling mag upgrade.
  • ok ba yung xtar xp1? o mas ok yung mp1s?
    magchacharge lang ng 14500 batts.
    may nakasubok na ba?
    thanks
  • xtar mp1s: decent basic charger but slow. accommodates different sizes via screw-on spacers

    xtar sp2: selectable charge currents (0.5A, 1.0A, 2.0A) so optimized for different cells. excellent 2-bay charger

    xtar sp1: my personal favorite it's like the swiss army knife of chargers hehe. selectable charge currents (0.5A, 1.0A, 2.0A). supports LiFePO4 and 4.35v cells. powerbank feature.


    take note xp1 is for short cells only. doesn't take 18650 so don't waste your money

  • thanks sir exilim.


    mukang ok yung yung sp1 for personal. hehe. pero ipapamigay ko kasi kaya i need a cheap but decent charger para ipair sa 14500 FL.
  • Mga sir, ano pong maadvice niyong flashlight para sa MTB, gagamitin pang headlight? mga budget 500-1k lang po sana. Pero mas okay kung 500 lang hehe. Yun po sanang 18650 ang battery kasi may mga battery nako na ginagamit sa ecig ko eh, para hindi na ako bibili ng separate batt para sa flashlight. Thanks po
  • ^^ sa ganyan budget sa online kayo makakahanap ng affordable LED FL.
  • ^^ ganun po ba sir, kung ba locally available? mga magkano po dapat ang ibudget ko? and saan po pwedeng makabili? yun bang mga binebenta sa ng mga bumbay sa bangketa matibay po ba? Thanks
