***First of all, this group is still here, mostly for old times sake; sort of an archive. I have not been able to keep it updated with current information, or even show my current projects (which there were a lot since the last project shown on the photos page). I do ask that if you have any questions about high power LEDs, continue to post them and I will respond to them as soon as possible.
That said, I highly recommend that anybody, whether you are a member of this group or not, to check out the best and most current forum about high power LEDs, flashlights, electronics, batteries, etc here:
Again, go there, ask your questions; read up on the current news. You will be inspired by many of the projects there (flashlight modifications and others). I highly recommend becoming a member of the forum. The people at the "CPF" are kind and professional, as well as prompt to answer questions. Most members are experienced hobbyists, and some even have engineering backgrounds.
If you become a member of the candlepowerforums, look me up. I am registered as "Gryloc". I visit frequently and have my more current projects posted here and there. Just use the CPF search function. Enjoy!***
