    Default Kroma with SSCP4 and McR20 mod....

    I saw won over in the Custom BST. How was this done? Was it difficult? I'm not interested in the UV LEDs. How is the main beam compared to stock, output/runtime levels, etc. That light looks awesome...

    IF you can get the head open...the mod is not terribly difficult. The output and beam quality are 100% better.
    I actually just got done messing around with mine about an hour ago and am so happy that I did it. I did't use the Kroma that much due to the crappy beam with horible artifacts all over. Now it is a VERY useful light with a great low and really bright high beams.
    If you have a Kroma I HIGHLY suggest modding it or having it modded.

    Thats' crazy....hmmmm now I have to decide if I should do that or wait to see what the Optimus can do. Unless I can get a new Kroma cheap.... What do you think the output of the main beam is? Did you have the 50 or 60 lumen version?

    Don´t get me wrong.
    I really like your mods!
    No playing with DX lights.
    Sort of "how can I get the last hidden lumens out of this %$#@ Aviator/Chroma/Beast..."
    Great!

    Think putting a P7 in to a Kroma is possible anyone? Just throwing it out there.

    There is not enough room. If you get it apart, you will see what I mean. Would be cool though.

    If you can fit a McR20 there should be enough room. Maybe not using the same Lux3 sink area, but using a pedestal of some sort. That's how I crammed a P7 in to an HDS.

    There's room... just have to make the mod more permanent. I.e. Cut into the heatsink. The biggest challenge would be then to adjust the Kroma circuit to drive the P7 properly.

    If I still had a Kroma, I'd give it a try. Sadly, no Kroma.
