LED torch lens? Answered
I have this LED torch, a luxeon 'MXDL' (next to a AA battery in the photo). It's a 3 watt LED torch (supposedly) running on a AAA battery connected to a joule thief of some sort (it has some sort of transistor, a capacitor, and an inductor), but it isn't that bright,( being about the same as a 3 5mm LED torch which has these lenses), but I still like it because of its compact size and light output. Anyhow, its throw is kinda poor, and I was wondering whether I could put a cheap lens onto it (from out of, say a camera's lens) to increase throw. Would it work? How would I go about it?
P.S: I found these AAA li-ion batteries online, but I didn't even know that those batteries existed. If I put one of them into my torch, they'd probably increase brightness a lot, but because they are only rated at 300mah, I really doubt if it would be worth buying them. What do you think?
