    Has anyone summed up/compared the various hosts?
    I was staring at the many similar ones -- for example google manafont "p60 host" or just look at those named WF- anything. Any clear info on which have more metal in the head as heatsink/better contacts or reliability etc? Too many choices ....

    Hi hank,
    not including the Surefire weaponlight models, there are over 170 P60 hosts.
    It would be very difficult to give full descriptions on every one,, some are not made anymore.
    ~ the list being a reference


    I'll add this,
    the only host I know of that the base of the drop-in (or pill) is directly seated to
    the body are Dereelight,,they do not need springs with drop-ins.
    This would be considered direct heatsinking.

    I'm sure there will be people saying 'this brand' or 'that brand' is better.

    It really comes down to what your comfortable with.

    Hi all. Newb here.

    Orbital,
    I'm sure it would be difficult to give full descriptions on all 170+ lights, but given the level and depth of addiction some here display, I bet some already have a mostly complete list of their own. What would be more practical is a spread sheet or something along those lines of the more popular or currently available models...something that would serve as a purchase guide for those looking to dive in.

    -cheers

    Solarforce P1

    consists of precisely CNC-ed aluminum alloy in HAIII finish, covered by a layer of GFRP (an extremely strong, lightweight, chemical-resistant and durable substance), providing users with a comfortable and heat-isolating grip.
    The ventilating design of the GFRP ensure good heat dissipation and effectively prevents overheating of the LED module. Flame resistant....

    Updated List with Rayovac DIY2AA-b made into a 2AA P60 host by ToyTank. Some larger drop-ins may be a tight fit.


    ....hope you don't mind I used a couple of your pics...

    Bayco Tac-200 - confirmed... Unscrew the Led assembly from the bezel assembly and anything from a P60, Malkoff, to a DX drop-in will fit. Although I quite like the XP-E that it comes with. It claims 4.5 hours on high @ 160 Lumens off of two primaries (I think 2.5 regulated) and it has a pretty tight, clean hotspot with plenty of spill.... More importantly to me, the LED assembly is quite beefy and I imagine does quite well at keeping the nylon body from melting prematurely.

    Got it while that free shipping place with tach in the name had it on sale for $19.99 and couldn't resist. I had to find out if it was drop-in capable. Due to financial troubles I've been forced to sell off about 90% of my personal lights but I kept all of my polymer P60 hosts and plan on doing a comparison review in the next couple of days.

    Looks like a Xeno got it on with a Surefire...

    I also think we should take any lights off the list that require any major modification of the light or drop in to work.
    I mean, I can unscrew the reflector off of a drop in, stick a standoff/optic between it and the lens, and turn a
    Brinkmann Armormax AA into a "P60" host...

    I hear ya,
    If a complete standard size drop-in can fit & function, I'll put it on the list.

    Honestly, not sure if there are any that don't fit that qualification , the 'list' is just a reference helped by the cpf community

    btw, I deleted all the DX crap, & really considering removing some of the re-re-renamed ones
    .. but then I get someone telling me to keep it for reference purposes...




    likin' the new L2N

    Ok, this is a great and comprehensive resource.
    How about just an astrix by currently available models, or, even easier to maintain perhaps, and astrix by the discontinued models (just tell us which ones you decided to mark!) Thanks for keeping this updated!

    The list is a Reference Guide, or Collectors Guide if you will.
    just Copy & Paste then Google a host your interested in, to learn whatever you can on it.

    CPFMarketplace WTB :http://www.cpfmarketplace.com/mp/for...hts-amp-Parts&
    is a good place to find one or look to trade.

    I'm simply not going to make specific marks to each hosts current availability, vendor, price, color, ect...

    ___________________________

    === Some re-re-rebranding of hosts have already been taken off the list or wont be listed at all.

    Can I buy one of these http://macscustoms.com/0ma188.web.of...P60DropIn.html
    and drop it in a Solarforce L2 host? Is that all that is needed to make a functional light? I'm kinda new at this and don't want to buy incompatible parts or blow something up

    Yep!

    What you need to take into account is voltage range & the batteries you want to use.
    Those drop-ins look to be optimized for 2 x cr123 cells,,, which can get expensive since they are throw away batteries.

    I'v had 6V drop-ins that were great w/ a 18650 cell, and some that ran terrible on a 18650 cell.
    {have not had a chance to try Mac's units though}

    Judging by the picture, it looks like a 8*7135 driver that can take up to 6 Volts. These drivers work most efficiently with the battery voltage 0.12V above the LEDs Vf a higher voltage will cause excessive heat dissipation. therefore a single LiIon will work best. You should check HKJs 18650 comparator for a cell that stays a long time above 3.3V at a current of 3A if You plan to get the XP-G version (The XP-Gs Vf is 3.12V at 1A). The XP-E has a Vf of 3.5V at 1A which will be too high for full regulation at 2.8A.
    Short summary: It will be best to get the XP-G version of this drop in and run it with a good 2900mAh or 2600mAh cell, the 3100mAh and 3400mAh will offer less runtime at maximum current.

    I didn't see any difference/emitter,, that said, the tint filer was already in place.

    Low mode is really nice on this drop-in

    orbital that is one real nice L2n you have. in comparison to my L2p's the L2n's threads glides like butter. would like to see a SS special edition of this one day. i do llike it with the L2-S9 tail switch though.

    According to this thread, it does not accommodate standard D26/P60 dropins.

    Ok so the T6A was 0.04 millimeters smaller in diameter than a DX Cree R5 drop in so i showed it a Dremel sandpaper "bit" and voila i have a P60 host.Sorry if i derailed the thread but if somebody was wondering its very easy to mod
