    Here are 2 fun lego lights..

    Z2 with a C to M, M to D and a Megalennium head..



    and the same setup except on a LU60 adapter with a modified 1 cell extender.




    I had the N1 lamp in both, the spring on my tailcap is crushed so i couldn't get good battery contact though.

    T1/ TLS Kaidomain Light
    QtrHorse... My KD TLS T1 flashlight arrived today.

    The $29 TLS T1 Q5 head appears nearly identical (with some slight variations) to the Optics HQ TLS head I bought for $80. Output as measured in ceiling bounce test is identical and beam is pretty much a dead ringer as well. I think it's a great buy to upgrade a Surefire E-body to a Q5 LED for $29.

    Here are pics showing my Optics HQ TLS head on a Fivemega 18500 body and the KD TLS T1 head on a Surefire E1e body.









    Edited to add... it's become pretty clear to me that upgrading an E body to LED, while fun and interesting, the result really has a tough time competing with such lights as Quark 123 or Quark AA, which are much smaller, brighter, offer a huge range of variable output levels, and a couple of other output features... for less expenditure.

    I've done a lot of tweaks and legoing with Surefire 6P, 3P, and E lights and honestly, rarely use them now that I have acquired a NiteCore D10 R2, several Quarks, LF3XT, LF2XT, two L-Mini IIs, and Jet I Pro. Not that the Surefires aren't great lights, but widely variable output levels, ability to run with a wider variety of cell types, lower pricing, higher highs, lower lows, and typically smaller form factors all combine to make for some very compelling flashlights overall vs. Surefires. I still respect and enjoy the Surefires and play with them occasionally, but some of the more recent flashlight designs really have won me over.

    In spite of that.... I'm glad I got this $29 TLS head for my E1e. I had been running a floody KL4 head on this E1e and found the heat issue a little bothersome... this TLS Q5 head is bigger than the KL4, of course, but really offers a more useable light, in my view.. especially for the price.

    You raise some good points there DHart. I actually like the heft of the smaller Surefire lights and find them 'good in the hand' if you know what I mean.

    I tend to use smaller lights in the summer and revert back to big monster lego's for the winter, when carrying them about in a big jacket pocket is less of a chore.

    BTW great photography as usual

    The bird or the light?

    Light looks to be a Surefire E1E, (head, tailcap, and clip) but with an E1B body.

    What about this one? It uses a genuine SF C to M adapter.

    Yup, that's good enough to count.

    Just my little sharing...

    I use N62 bulb with FM3X and 2xFM26500(IMR-C), it seems that 2 cells are able to fully power the 3.7A bulb, now it really performs 500+ lumens in rechargeable format.

    besides, FM3X gives an impressive throw with N62, sharp parallel beam, strong and clean, it is better than wa1111 and 5761.

    Although N62 is a type of collection item and not practical, but I could not resist to use it to play with the turbohead, it is a quite interesting incan. lego for throw.

    Default SureFire lego question

    So I was really bored just now and decided to see if the head on my L1 (Cree) would fit on an L4 or LX2 body, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it did. The output on the L1 head is quite a bit higher when it is used on the L4 and LX2 bodies, and I get the dual output when it is used on the LX2 body.

    That having been said, is it safe in the long run? I have no clue whether it is being overdriven or if it's regulated on either the L4 or LX2 bodies.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The Driver for the L1 Cree is in the body so it is being ran in direct drive if I am not mistaken. It will not be regulated and may burn up because of this. I ran my L1 on a E1 body with an RCR at 3.7v but 6v may be too much. but I am by all means not all knowing and may be full of huey and could work just fine. Lets see if more informed people way in here.
