Under observation my tiny table light ..
a china toy , weighs very less,

consumed 110/- taken from a electric shop,not footpath :lol:.



Few tasks it has to handle,

Laptop light , Table lamp for all DIY needs and reading,
handy light also on power cuts, finally a torch.

There is nothing new china is making multi tasking lights all the time..

What is special here is it is a torch with a flip 6ultrabright LED panel.The panel tilts at 15degrees , so you can point the LED sets all directions... that is too much the price of 1 cup coffee in some places :).Panel can be hidden when used as torch.


I expect is to run 6Hrs atleast .. already running 1.5 hr with the charge while bought.. pics here :

Nice one Kaushik, let us know how you go. I have a thing for torches.

These LEDs torches really last long. I have a Maglite-LED and an andslite. The andslite is a little over 3 years old and is still running on its first set of duracells. The light is not as bright as when I first bought it. I tried a battery change and it glows up really bright. But, I am just pushing it to see how long it will last.

Light gave 7Hrs with 6 led panel on :)!

As a torch it will need charge only 2twice in a month.

dvdmk,
true 6 month is cool, but the hardware will not die, if battery dies ,i know some very good battery,a replacement will make it last 2yrs+.

As u know that is a half hour task for me.

santosh

how much u paid for Maglite? Here it is 1k+ with bill,lasts long...it is a standard torch all world over. Kwality branded LEDs (very reliable) have landed in SP road.

For smd work etc the panel of 6 LEd panel in my torch is awesome.


Caution: China LEDs in cheap torches may die in 1 year.keep that in mind any one who is buying.

BriteLite is one of the best among the LED high beam torches and i think they are the one who introduced the LED based torches (at least in middle east).

Fantastic results Kaushik. Please let me know where I can pick up one of these.

santosh,
how much u paid for Maglite? Here it is 1k+ with bill.
Mine takes 4(or is it 3?) D sized batteries and I paid around 70 Aussie dollars (around Rs.2500). This is the largest that Maglite makes using LED. I bought an Original belt hanger for accessory for it as well. Although it is a good price relatively, it is best bought from US.

For 1k with bill, I think it must be the Maglite Solitaire or the 2 AA cell pen torch. Definitely not LED. BTW, I have the solitaire as well and what a little beauty is it.

BriteLite is one of the best among the LED high beam torches and i think they are the one who introduced the LED based torches (at least in middle east).
Friend has the non-LED one and it is fantastic. I like the Maglites because they are built like a batton and can also be used for self-defence if the need arises.

My Torches wishlist:licklips::
1) Amazon.com: Stanley HID0109 HID Spotlight: Automotive
2) Lightforce 240 Blitz Lightforce - Products
3) Amazon.com: Northern Industrial Super SearchEye Spotlight - 10 Million Candlepower: Northern Tool & Equipment

FYI, there is also a Forum for flashlights: CandlePowerForums - Powered by vBulletin

Santosh ,

I picked one from a nearby store in kalyan ngr. I will
visit your place , together we well grab one.
Until your son touches it will be great companion.

Mr.light is not just a torch...
It is a more valuable tool for me, as i am going to do a
major SMD work .

Candlepower I used to visit..full of DIY
for me if one light is doing well i will not venture into.

Update:

There is a common habit of DIY people if they
find a small reason to try a project they just add it in the
TODO list .

Mr. Light dims 30% after 4 Hrs .I searched for possible fixes
and explored the LED driver circuits. Many use LM317
to make a Constant Current Source ,but there is a more efficient
circuit here :Super-Simple Power MOSFET Linear Current Regulator - CandlePowerForums

This will keep the LED glowing with same intensity even though battery voltage falls .It will replace the resistive
dropper already there.


Seems easy one and essential ;) ..!

hi santhol2,

look at these torches - they are combat torches - i use them on night treks- in combat they are used to seek and blind the combatant - after which you slit his throat with camus knife!

hi kaushik,

they just have a slap switch for on/off - no variable intensity and no memory - batteries last only for one hour - not practical for daily use at all!
