    Yes, I got an email too. This is good news for those who have been waiting for Malkoff drop ins. Lets try to endorse Gene's products to other "unenlightened" friends or relatives of ours, so he will not run out of customers.

    there are only two body options for his dropin depending on your choice of drop in. one is the maglite ( c or d) the other one is the surefire (6p, 9p, c2, c3, z2, g2 series)

    In maglites you can only have upto 6 volts with his drop in so that's around 4 cells (d or c)

    with surefire, I think it's 9 volts. so 3 3volts cells will work.

    I just went to his site and read "the story"...

    Heck, I'd send money to this guy without a second thought about it... "CPF member recommended" or not!

    Yeah, I have the latest Q4 M60 in a 9P and it works great. I can't wait for the Q5 version, though!

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate the support! It was an agonizing decision. Back when I was young and had no dependents, I would have pulled it as a no brainer, but now whew!

    I just sent an email to Gene and Cathy and I hope everyone else who has one or more of Gene's wonderful drop-ins continue to support him. As stated above. With better availability, I see cool, unique birthday, Christmas, and special thank you gifts for friends and family.

    If you consider your time, effort, and materials you may or may not use to built anything close to what Gene does, it just makes more sense to get a top quality product that is worth every penny in realiability and confidence. That's why my first drop-in went to the wife....ok, not, she is getting the second on once I use that Duracoat stuff for a pretty lanvender M@glight!!

    This is the e-mail Gene sent out to everyone that was on his mailing list.

    Hello All,
    Just some news on recent developments in Malkoff Devices:
    I have officially turned in my notice at my "real" job and
    will be attacking this full time. December 10 is the official date. This
    was done after much serious contemplation and prayer. My wife is on board
    and it was actually her suggestion. This is a first as she generally
    regards my projects as nutty and sometimes entertaining. The electric
    squirrel shocking bird feeder was one of these famed projects. 300 VDC will
    discourage the squirrels and is fodder for some serious entertainment.
    However it does not impress the wife.
    With that said, I have managed to broker deals with some good suppliers. By
    mid December I should have enough materials to manufacture several hundred
    Mag C, D, and M60 dropins. I will have Q5 WG binned Crees for the M60.
    Output will be 220+ lumens for approx 2 hrs. I will have a low output
    version of 130 lumens for 6 hrs on 2 primary CR123's.
    I have designed a new driver for the Mag dropins that will allow for 1000ma
    on 4,5, or 6 cells. I've had a lot of demand for this particular
    configuration. And yes, you can use 2 rechargeable Li-ion cells. Any
    battery combinations up to 9v total.
    Hopefully by mid December everything will be available. It is my goal to
    keep most all the Malkoff Devices in stock at all times. Wish me Luck!
    Thanks,
    Gene Malkoff

    I'm subscribed to his newsletter, but didn't get the email. Maybe it's lost in a spam folder somewhere, but I normally get his mailings.

    Edit: Thanks 5.0Trunk for posting it. Sounds good! Good luck Gene!

    Excellent products at excellent prices. Made in America.

    Who'd ever think that could be a recipe for success these days?

    Congratulations, Gene.
    I own two Malkoff devices; will be adding more in the months to come.

    Gene, does this mean that the drop-in for 3-cell maglites will no longer run at 1000ma?

    Best of luck to you and your wife, Gene.

    I use my original hand-built drop-in in my 4-D mag everynight (purchased from you last May) out here in the wilds of the Pacific NW, and it has always performed flawlessly.

    I'm looking forward to more of your excellent products.
