This homemade flashlight is what I call the 'CopperLux'. It is constructed of common plumbing copper pipe parts. It uses one inch copper pipe, pipe cap, and pipe connectors. It uses the brightest LED in the world, a white Lumileds Luxeon Star. It has a Lambertian high dome, the latest type of Luxeon Star LED. This one single LED is equivalent in brightness to 18 - 20 5mm Nichia white LED's. The emmitted bluish white light is similar in color to HID car headlights. The battery life should be about 12 hours of high brightness, and several days of gradually diminishing but usable light. The tail cap simply firmly presses on. This flashlight uses 3 'C' cell batteries, and is direct drive, which is very much overdriving the LED, for maximum brightness. The most excellent heat sink properties of this pure copper flashlight makes it possible to overdrive the LED as I do.
