    How about Cree upgrades to one of his older luxIII ML-1's?

    In general, a Seoul P4 is an easier swap for a Luxeon since the reflectors are basically the same. I have a UWAJ ML-1 that I picked up from a fellow member. It is a four sided body with the "magnum" head and a stippled 20mm reflector. I was going to have Milky swap in an SSC P4, but decided the tint was so nice that a few more lumens was not worth it, for me.
    Will work for lights.

    Crenshaw and NotRegulated, Milky is very flexible with these mods. I can't speak for him of course but I'm sure he can do both of your mods. He's only an email or phone call away. Enjoy!

    Thanks, but was wondering if he starts with a L1 cree host, cos i dont want to have to buy one, ship to him, and ship back, but i guess he does then...

    But i think ill wait for my L1 Cree to come in first, and use it till its Useless.. then either get a new one from scott, of milky that one...

    Oh i cant wait to join the L1 family..

    You could try ordering from a dealer and having it shipped directly to milkyspit...or buy from someone in the MarketPlace and doing the same thing. I've done that a few times with parts that I needed him to work on, and I did the exact same thing with an L1 that I bought off another CPFer.

    The L1 Cree mod is simply amazing. The high mode of up to 180 lumen blows the stock 65 lumen out of the water...while the low mode puts out a very eye-pleasing 5 lumen for those late-night bathroom breaks or midnight snack attacks.

    Honestly, I have yet to see a better light than the milkyspit modded L1 Cree. I recently had to sell one of mine for $250, but in my opinion, it's worth over $300, easy. It is the most versatile light you can buy! The head is focusable, so you can make the beam a tight, focused light...but also de-focus it and have a broad beam for upclose needs.

    Whatever mod you choose to have Scott do for you, you won't be disappointed. His reputation here is impeccable and his craftsmanship is amazing!

    My ML1 Smoothie Magnum "with full-sized 20mm smooth reflector, Seoul SSCP4 USWOH emitter, and flat ultra-clear lens" arrived yesterday and I am happy like a kid
    Thank you, Scott!
    And thank you, Skalo, for letting me get this one

    If you can send Paypal I'll get your light in the mail today. PM here (might be full at the moment) or CPF Marketplace, or email..

    How does taking the L1 Cree from 65 lumens to 180 effect the run time?

    I imagine with over double the output the runtime on high would be around 45-50 minutes?

    Milky - you have a PM.

    Thanks!

    Had a quick quesiton for you though...can you do similar mods to the M1 that you can do to the L1? I really prefer the look of the M1 better.

    I just got back my second ML-1x. I think it's even brighter than the old one! Man, this thing throws beautifully and I simply love the UI on this light! Thanks again for an awesome job, milkyspit!

    Hi Mbley,
    The ML1e Is something Scott talked me Into, It's basically a Flat sided Surefire L1 host with a surefire E1e head, NG400 driver, and a SSC. The NG400 gives more than 2hrs of flat runtime, lovin' it.

    The beam pattern in the E1e is awesome, reminds me of my floodmaster but. with brighter and wider sidespill and a little hotter hotspot. I'll make a thread of It with pictures soon. Batteries are charging. Anywho, thanks for the interest.

    Sounds like another "must have" light
    Does it have 2 levels of output like L1?

    Thanks Mark,
    Yes It has two levels just like a Milky L1. Everything's the same except the head and the slightly more efficient circuit.
    I can honestly say this is the best ML1 variant I have ever had.

    lol thanks bondr006.

    I just got my ML-1x back from milkyspit. I had fried it when a friend of mine (ahem, cough cough) convinced me to put the head on an E2e body. Bad idea. Anyway, now my ML-1x is even brighter than before! I'd say it's pushing 200+ lumen on one RCR123!

    Thanks for the great job and fast turn-around, milkyspit!
