I suppose but when you are comparing the costs of a $19 flash light + some cheap UV LEDS from e-bay vs $500 for this model XeLED-32UV-R-375 I just might be worth the work.
Have you used the UV ones?I have been using these and so far so great. Thought I would share my secret, cheaper than most and only a bit more than building yourself.
See the other listings for UV
Hey HJ,Hey SpectreTMM, I have 50 UV LEDs from BestHongKong on the way, total cost $9.99. They didn't specify a brightness other than 'intensly bright', however they are directional (20 degrees) and I plan on building a few UV spots with them. I will post results when I can.
The AC 110 LED spots have a stated intensity of 10k mcd, if that is for the whole spot that is not very bright. I have seen 10mm LEDs that are 60K mcd.
No Prob Slimey,I just ordered the 4 pack bulb package from joshschaf post. I will let
you know about the brightness.
Did not order UV light, just happy for the link. Sorry for hijacking the thread.
LEDs came in today, prototyped a quick spot with 5 LEDs, and I am happy with the effect! I'm gonna try and snap some comparison pics tomorrow night with the FCG. So a $9 bag of 50 LEDs, with $2.50 in 9 volt batery clips will give me 10 small LED spots.Hey HJ,
Thanks for the info. I ordered a boat load of the UV LED's From Hong Kong as well last yr.
I haven't had a chance to use them yet. That is why I was asking about the flash light at
the top of the thread. Please let me know your progress.
Thanks for the info.
