Thread: My New Malkoff Projects

  1. #1

    Default My New Malkoff Projects

    First of all, I truly appreciate all the support and kind words I've received on my Mag Mods. I apologize that I had to raise the price so much lately, but I had to do something to slow down the orders. I'm a one man operation and with a wife and 2 kids I was having no time for them. That and the fact that I don't believe in just throwing things together. I like to build them right.

    That said some of the new projects I'm working on are:

    1.) A Surefire P-60 style dropin that will generate in excess of 200 lumen and still maintain 1-2 hour runtime.

    2.) A Mag dropin version of my current Mag Mod setup. It will have the 900-1000ma output and be fully heatsinked. It should work in 2-5 D cell lights. A C sized version may not be possible.

    3.) A 3 Led version of my current Mag Mod. The driver is capable of outputting 2100ma. It should be a real screamer approaching the 600 lumen output range.

    I hope these are of interest .

    Thanks, Gene Malkoff

    Wow Gene, I'd really be interested in these products. And you can bet most everyone else will be also!

    I just checked your site and holy smokes! I should have ordered from you when you had pics of Maggie the dog and the "high-tech" lab on the Action Shots! (I couldn't decide whether to send or buy a new host; snooze you lose!)

    Keep up the excellent work, and looking forward to more of your modifications.

    2 and 3 more definitely are screaming for my wallet's attention...

    as for 1, when you say P-60, do you mean an incandescent drop-in? Or an LED drop-in similar to the ones available for P-60 lights?

    They all sound good to me! Any idea of potential costs?

    Default Re: My New Malkoff Projects

    The P-60 style dropin will be an LED version to replace incandescent module. I don't know about cost. It depends on the parts and work involved in putting them together. Right now I'm developing the drivers for these applications.

    If your going to use the rebel(I don't know if its even out yet) for number 3 you can count me in, any 600 lumen Mag esp if it maintains focus is a done deal for me.

    Hmm. interested in #3. However... 2100mah... is that 700mah per led? You should find a way to drive them to the max.
    Then stick in a 2 stage or something. lol

    I'd definitely be interested in #1 and maybe #3. Keep us posted.

    Default Re: My New Malkoff Projects

    I am interested in #2 for sure and #3 depending on runtime, etc. Of course, price is one of the main factors.
    Sooo... how much?

    Gene, we are interested in anything else you develop !


    You certainly have our complete attention.




    Regarding yer' family situation, there's only one solution:

    Put 'em to work on the assembly line.

    Make 'em start pullin' their own weight, for a change.

    They've been freeloading for much too long !

    Awesome lights 1 & 3! Although I wish that you'd also design a NovaTac that's about 1200 Lumens using the next generation Cree's. That would totally rock!

    hrmm... well I can tell you my brother will definitely want one of those P-60 dropins for his combat light! Sounds like a good birthday present to me. If you can deliver even 150 lumens for at least 1 hour (as long as it's not really really floody I will commit to purchasing at least 1 assuming price is below $60.

    I'm definitely interested in #2 and #3.

    It'll be interesting to see how you accomplish #2, fully heat-sinked. I'm confident it's possible, despite the fact somebody not long ago asserted the Terralux drop-ins were they way they were because it was "impossible" to heat sink a drop-in properly.

    #3 is interesting, as well. I've been interested in a "floody" Mag-format light for some time. I think there's a good market for it, Elektrolumens appears to have abandoned that segment, and nobody else appears to be doing it. I suspect the challenge will be coming up with some kind of assembly that you can easily install. IIRC, the reason Wayne stopped doing these is he felt they were too labour-intensive for the return.

    Of course: What I'm interested in and what I have the money for aren't the same thing , so don't take anything like my comments above as any kind of indication of my intent to purchase.

    Gene, yes, I'd be interested in all three! Do you actually have prototypes of any of these badboys?

    Yeah, the drop-in is a great idea. I don't think the word "impossible" was really the intention literally for the Terralux camp. I think those guys meant something more along the lines of that they didn't "feel it was worth the cost to develop" or "didn't feel there was enough interest from a mass-market standpoint". Either way, this will be a great opportunity for Gene and great for us flashaholics!

    No prototypes as of yet. But several parts of prototypes. As soon as I get something halfway together, another little light bulb goes off in my head. Then I have to tear things down to make changes. Eventually things get too cut up. Then a build a new one incorporating the changes. Unfortunately it takes time and money, which are available in limited quantities. You can get on my mailing list by creating an acct on the website www.malkoffdevices.com .

    Thanks, Gene

    Gene ,
    The P-60 drop in you are talking about, is that a LED drop-in for a surefire 6p flashlight? If it is, I am very interested?

    Default Re: My New Malkoff Projects

    Yes an LED drop-in for a Surefire 6P flashlight and any other lights that will take the
    P-60 module that are 6volts and maybe a little above.
