    Thoughts on retrofiting LED into L&M Arc housing

    Having an issue with my Arc not igniting the bulb. Double click will cause the bulb to flicker and I can hear a zipping noise from the light, but no love after that. Battery is fully charged. I contacted the company and they are wanting $150 if the ballast or bulb is replaced. They are suggesting an upgrade to their new LED equiv.

    With the above said, anybody have suggestions to either a fix or an diy led retrofit into the existing housing and reflector that would yield the same (or better) output?

    Thanks for any help on this one guys/gals

    I haven't seen a DIY for that particular housing. Parts are the same and you can get them all at ledsupply.com and digikey.com. If you can reuse the reflector you can save a few bucks.

    LED - http://ledsupply.com/creemce.php
    Reflector - http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...me=711-1067-ND
    Driver - http://ledsupply.com/03023-d-n-700.php

    You may have to have a heatsink solution if it gets too hot in the case.

    Or you could just gut an mc-e flashlight - http://www.dealextreme.com/products.dx/category.925

    Hope that helps.
