    Highly unlikely to actually be 10,000 lumens but its pretty bloody bright and quite easy/cheap to make.

    In action.



    How to.

    Jesus. What would it cost to make, vs. buying a Skyray?

    Assuming hes not wrong about how much the LED costs, looks to be about £30 so roughly the same but I guess you get the added bonus of building it. Prob better to just buy off the shelf though...

    It"s got good spill but limited throw. It needs a deeper set Cree and some heat sink ;)

    Looks like it's mostly empty tube, the batteries weren't that big.

    One thought, why did he solder the batteries together; how the hell will he recharge the damn thing?!?

    I always fancied one but didn"t risk it in the end due to the iffy reviews.

    Currently using the Nitecore TM15 but it"s only a genuine 2450 Lumens on max ;) As used in Middleton mine report
