    10596

    Tri-Rebel w/ Royal Blue and Red, in a Saberforge blade. Need a stronger resistor for red. Right now it's a janky, bad setup that I won't show a picture of for pride's sake.

    Shoot. I was hoping the celophane would work. I've got the green LEDs started a little bit, and they are tons brighter (obviously), so I just think it's the rating of the pink LEDs that is sub par....

    Hello again,

    My last reply made all these promises of "tomorrow I will do this," but the pre-Halloween shopping and post-Halloween hangover took precedence. :)

    Correct. I knew it was 2A from looking at the PC 3.0 manual. Each LED listed a 20mA draw, so 100 should have been possible, and I had about 90. I think it's just the LED's now, myself. 2000-6000...

    I'll measure later tonight. I've misplaced my good digital multimeter, and I need to buy a new one.

    I was unaware the current setting had an unlimited setting. I have the PC 1.0 manual on a uSD...
  6. Not quite an EL question, but close. LED String

    Hello all,

    I've been working on "upgrading" one of my LED sabers to use a removable LED string blade. I'm using a PC 1.6 with 7.4V, and have ~90 LEDs set up in a series-parallel setup (~45 in...

    Alright, these guys are getting painful to work with. All the LED's work, but the purple won't shine for more than 2 seconds. I get it for a split second right on the line for the red's saturation....

    The LEDs are wired in parallel using potentiometers. I'm figuring I should switch to just using 3 pronged slide switches, so it's just on-off, no resistance to deal with.

    Alright, so with the lowest setting on the potentiometers for the red and blue LEDs, and green cut off, I get a hot pink shade. I realize the purple shade I posted last was terrible, so I took...

    I did it! The royal blue is beautiful. And the diffusion with the 18 degree lense almost seems to work better; at least the blue seems to have less contrast between emitter end amd the tip. The only...

    I may just end up gluing the lense on. My only concern now is how much light is lost in the space between the lense and the lower lip of the blade holder. With triple the lumens coming in, you could...

    Really? I would assume you bought the same lense I did; my lense fits nicely, but it doesn't exactly snap on. And so what I meant is that vertically there's some space I need to fill so the lense...
