COMPLETELY outside the box..........

"Fat Star" Octa 8x SST-90 Colossus Led Flashlight @ 18.000 lumens -more beamshots-

This is absolutely amazing. We look SOOOO normal compared to this guy.
First off, this guy doesn't even have any duct tape laying arounf his shop.
Next, he machines his parts from stock aluinuum......

..Granted it's a little off the ecomodder beat.......

Carlos,

He mentions 9A in his OP, and has a photo of eight lithium cells in series. That's 30V nominal, so about 265W!

18,000Lm... that's like 18 headlights, or like one of these with seven CFL's and a parabolic reflector!

Ok, then NOT a headlight option, at least in its "current" form (ha ha, I made a pun).

But why? From his post "...then some security from the hotel showed up and asked me "friendly" to leave..." If it was me doing the asking, you'd better believe it wouldn't have been friendly.

I like the tag line from the following post, though:

Quote:
Maturity is knowing you were an idiot in the past, Wisdom is knowing you'll be an idiot in the future and Common Sense is knowing you should try not to be an idiot right now.
Though in his case, I'd change the word "idiot" to one that has seven letters, and the first one's 'a' :-)

It is very awesome. He never seems to say how log it takes to heat soak his heat sink/ mass. I'm guessing not long. If you wanted to use that as a headlight I'd guess forced air cooling would be necessary.
