    Aren't those D batteries 5,000 not 50,000 mah! Also, did you know there are 11,000 mah D batteries out too?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "lens". Lens is the front glass of a flashlight. A reflector is metal cone, and you know what an optic is. Not sure what you are using.. I will find out when you post pictures!

    Keep up the good work!!

    Cool thanks for the response.

    It would be cool if you had a USL type adapter that would eliminate the magswitch (don't have prob with the switch it just takes up so much space).

    Those are powerizer C cells (I assume since they are rated at 5000mah).

    Much better to carry 5C's in a 4d than to lug a 5D mag around.

    My bad.

    I am a pretty big guy and I don't like carrying my 4D around at all. I can't imagine carrying a 5D

    I think he mentioned using two Fatman drivers driving two Lux Vs in series each.

    I've been waiting to build one of these excellent lights for some time now. The only part I still need is George's new Fatflex driver. I can't see using this without dimming capability and I don't really like the external pot option as much as the single button menu like the nFlex.

    I was planning one using two Li-ion 'D's or two of AW's protected li-ion 'C's if they are available when the Fatflex comes out.

    Excellent work, Changchung. It's amazing that even in your close-up beamshot that the beams all blend together. It looks like one emitter source.
    If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

    Thanks my friend, that is right, the light look like a single INCREDIBLE Led... I have a doubt about the Fatflex, this circuit is like the fatman but with dimmer? or is a driver who can i connect to my Fatman to do this feature???

    Changchung, if you use a thinner HS you can go with IMS20 or McR20 which produce a much tighter beam and nicer spill.

    As for putting 2x fatman inside a MagD it's no problem at all. You can do the 180 degree opposite each other or if you have the patience double stack and provide sufficient heatsink on the opposite ends.

    I manage to put 2x fatman and 1x nFlex inside a MagD head (stock) in the Sephiroth a while back using the same method mentioned above.

    Hi, thanks, i think for the moment leave this mod like that, i receive this HS for free, here, were i live is not easy find something like that, the cuter job take me around 2 months in find the right place to do it, and charge me a lot...

    The light throw what i have now is very well, better than before.
    I dont know how you fit 3 booster, one push botton and one pot, you I try to put a dual pot for the 2 Fatman and i dont find a secure and safe way.

    For the moment i am very happy with this new Magmod, but... If a the opportunity to buy one from you be great... You are the best, i am looking all your jobs for long time ago... Thanks for be there for help us...
