What size are the screws on the lynx lamps? I've lost one!


Depends.
I can send replacement FOC, X1000 and 2000 are 4mm stainless with nylon thumbscrews, the 3000 and 6000 are heavier and take 5mm screws.

The first lamps out had ordinary screws and I supplied free upgrades.

Why not drop me an email roy@royfellows.uk

Ordering Lamps

All communication by ordinary Internet email please, I need shipping addresses to be in writing to avoid errors.

I will not reply to any emails where doing so enters me into any contractual agreement with third parties, requires me to sign up to something, or is charged for.

I am building one now as all seems to be OK with mine. Will be supplying an extension lead so the flat battery can be carried in a pocket or mounted on a belt as an alternative to helmet mount. With the new high capacity, high discharge cells, batteries will get smaller.

The battery is heavy for helmet mounting but I soon got used to mine on a high quality Ecrin Roc. Would not recommend any of the big bat cookers on anything like an Elios.

I expect the price to be about the same as the X6000.

Drop me a personal email with your name etc and I will put you on the system for it.
Nothing new about lamps being sold even before they are assembled.

Off reply, but I am looking at a new low end lamp based on soft switching off a single button, I will see how it works out when I get one together.
Lightweight Lynx body, 2 Series LEDS at 3 modes. Battery meter part of single PCB. 6 components only and 10 minutes labour time to change anything. Cost under £100

If I do go ahead on this I wont announce until I have at least 6 in stock!

I once had someone''s lamp in for repair and they told me that they had a ''Petzl Duo'' that they could use. I didn''t sleep well that night and got up early to finish their lamp.

Ah well
Although not yet in production I thought I would spin it on aditnow first, see if anyone wants to comment.

The Lynx X_Basic is a complete break from previous designs in that I am aiming for the lower end of the market as a challenge to the home made/headtorch/Chinese bike lamp sector.

The lamp has only 6 basic components any of which can be changed in about 10 minutes. 2 LEDs, 2 Reflectors, a switch, and a PCB. Emitters are two Cree XM-L2 U2s.



(click image to open full size image in new window)

Unlike the others this one is soft switching and connecting a battery causes the battery level indicator to light up, it also acts as a pilot lamp. Green, amber, red, flashing red, down the scale, however it will continue to burn up to 24 hours on a diminishing rate.

The green light on its own as a pilot looks quite sexy, and just the job for chatting in company. Bound to draw comment.



(click image to open full size image in new window)

The button is an IP 67 waterproof push button which cycles through 3 modes.



(click image to open full size image in new window)

Standard outputs 170 mA to produce about 170 lumens at 25C, there is a middle mode, then full power at 1.7 amps to produce 1400 lumens. A long hard (On) press gives a flashy mode for those who like them, cannot be switched on accidentally for those who like me hate them.

I have deliberately kept the max output down so that the lamp will be sustainable on a 2 cell power pack, this keeps down weight and cost. The lamp weighs 170 grams which is about Scurrion territory.

The price when its eventually offered for sale will be £95, same high performance power pack as the others. As it’s a low cost unit I will be happy to post by First Class signed for so it will be £100 all in with postage.

Onto other matters, I have upgraded the X2000 to 2200 lumens at 25C, and also the floodlights are upgraded to XM-L2 U2s from XPGS, at same output.

I am looking also at discontinuing some of the slower sellers.

Dragon D1800s continue to outsell all the others, out of 5 lamps sold this week 3 were D1800s.

Tested the X_Basic in Cwmystwyth over the weekend.

Main concern was the essential peripheral light, seeing ones feet I consider essential for safety reasons, no problem.

The old Trigon was very good for this, so I have used the same reflectors, right up against the glass as in the Trigon.

The lamp actually runs three separate programs as well.

Quick touch is program #1 On, walk mode, middle, and max.
Longer touch is program #2, the flashes for those who like them.
Very long 10 second press is program #3, 10 different brightness modes starting with a low mode a lot less bright that the standard walk mode and progressing upward to maximum.

So something for everyone, which is what I wanted to achieve.

I have had a small number of instances of cables failing internally due to metal fatigue of the copper internal wires.

It is important to avoid an angle of cable to gland on either lamp or power pack of less than 90 degrees and cable under tension.

Doesn't the green pilot make your cheese butties look strange? Wink

How you fixed to do me a lamp before the end of this month Roy?
Got a trip coming up and the Workstar is a little bit tired. Cells are still good though. Smile

Hi people

I am sorry to advise that I am unable to take any further advance orders until further notice.
All existing orders will be met as will any warranty returns plus the usual standard of after sales support will continue.

I have to emphasise that this is only a 'hobby' not a full time business and that I have a rather diverse lifestyle which I want to enjoy while I am able in my active retirement years.

I would like to thank everyone for their support over over the years.

This is not the end of Fellows lamps, just a temporary handbrake so to speak.

Some models are available from stock, main issue relates to Dragons and X2000s
