    Does anyone have the UltraFire SST-50 3.7V~4.2V drop in? The website isnt very specific, but it says its 3 mode and that it can put out 1250 lumens...Is this the brightest? I have a wf-502b and I want to get the brightest possible drop-in either 18650's or cr123's

    I've been reading about drop-ins and I figure they're called that for a reason. Are they all truly interchangeable? Reason I ask is that some manuf are proprietary on other parts of the hosts and tail caps preventing them from swapping around. I'm new to the forum, hence my elementary question.

    Wayne,

    Drop-ins are also called P60 or D26 and are designed to be interchangeable. The design is based on the SureFire P60 incandescent lamp assembly for the C, Z and P series lights. However, there are small variations that will require a bit of shimming or contact spring adjustment to get good battery contact and proper heat sinking. You can choose from very inexpensive P60s up to high-end makers like Nailbender and Malkoff.

    Hello everyone!
    I would like to be assembly by me one tri-XPG module...
    Can anyone tell me which driver should I use for a single 18650 cell and if there is a empty drop-in that may contain drivers, PCB and carclo optic?
    Or please can you give me the exact sizes of the P60 standard?
    Thank you!

    PS: aaand please could you also tell me which are the best tri/quad xpg drop-in on the market and where to buy them?

    I sure wish I knew which drop in I have that is in my Ultrafire WF-505B. It is the only more than one mode P60 I have that has NO PWM in the lower modes.

    Only my Fenix P2D and Regal EDC have zero PWM in lower modes. My Luma Incedio and Connexion have it but fast enough that it doesn't bother me.

    Can someone recommend to me a drop in P60 sized module that will work with a single 3V SureFire 123A cell? I have a SF 310R that I want to convert to LED. I was looking at the first page of this thread and while some will work, they are a bit pricey. Most of the DX links are dead, and those are the ones that fit my budget as well. I'm looking for something that will be fairly bright and has maybe 2 modes (strobe and constant). Thanks!

    Whoa ! big thread lol.

    i am after a single mode huge power p60 dropin, what are my options ? build or buy ? do i want a sst 50 ? 90 even or just a hard driven xm-l ?
    and how many otf lumens can i get ?
    help please, its going in a C2-twisty, I have two extenders for different battery options and runtimes - a voltage for primary option would be good.
    thanks

    Does anyone know of a lower power, neutral XP-G drop-in that would be suitable for a G2?

    I think around 150Lumens should be sufficient. 3-9 volt and 2 mode is optimum.

    Am I searching for the holy grail?

    hey jabe1, take a look at lumensfactory.com online shop, d26 led section, they have 3 mode xpg neutrals with the voltage you require, gives you 5% 30% and 100% = 1 Amp

    I have the e series version and use the 30% most - its prolly what your after, the dropins have memory too so as long as you dont on/off too fast it will stay at the mode you choose.

    Is there a cheap (under $20) 2 amp xml p60 drop in that will run on 2 x CR123?

    I love my Solarforce drop in but even though it is supposed to be safe for 2 primaries I think 3 amps is too much for the batteries.

    I prefer to use primaries.

    Glad to see another amber fan show up here. Now there's two of us (grin).
    If someone else comes along we can start a topic ...
    (Nailbender made me a very nice amber 2-LED dropin last year; I was just starting to wonder if there are better LEDs available.

    Malkoff M61WL - They call it warm, but my M61W is more like neutral. WL ~ 125 Lumens. 5hrs runtime. The M61L Hi CRI is quite a bit warmer, and perfect in my G2Z. Not multimode in a G2, though. (Can be 2mode in an Elzetta or Malkoff host, with a special ring.)
    Otherwise, have Nailbender build a 3-mode exactly to your spec - his stuff is fantastic. But you may need to do some math to calculate the current draw you want. He doesn't test or certify in composite/polymer hosts.

    A while back I was looking to make a warmer light setup, to be used as room lighting.
    When to a local Hobby Lobby and bought a sheet of plastic Amber, (report cover type of thing)

    It was on sale for like $1.00 or something,...good price.
    So I got it, and carefully cut out circles around a couple of different flashlight lenses I have.

    Just put on the underside of the lens, put your light back together.

    I know there are threads on filters ect.., but it was the whole $1 spent to do exactly what I wanted.

    cheers

    Could someone tell me the highest lumens drop int he 9P will take? And the longest lasting batteries to use. Would like to just go ahead and max it out if possible. Thanks

    This one is kind of dying out.

    You might want to look @ Nailbenders hi voltage XML drop.

    I'm not sure how many amps 3xcr123 can safely put out.

    I'd ask him.

    I'm still looking for the "PERFCT" drop.

    I'm hoping at some point to have VanisleDSM make me either a quad XP-E or XP-C in neutral @5.6a to run in my P60 headlamp host.

    My two current favs are my van quad XP-G and my Nailbender XM-L ~3.5a
    Tho the NB is on the cool side of neutral.

    I also have a Vinh 4a XML that pulled 4.6a straight from my 4x 18650 batt carrier.
    It's a monster! But probably going to sell or return as its just too warm for me.
    It's 3000k or maybe warmer.
    No green at all!

    Thank you "psychbeat" for the info. I made a stand alone thread but it got deleted and I was directed here. So not sure what is going on. As now I will have to make another thread asking some stuff. But I will also look at "Nailbenders" stuff. Thanks for your time, you've been most helpful.

    Anyone know of a single mode XM-L drop-in that takes a huge voltage input range(2.7-9)?

    http://www.batteryjunction.com/thrunite-p60-r5.html

    Is close to what I want. XP-G with the 2.7-9 but I can't find one for sale where it's actually in stock.

    Want a drop-in that can run off of one 18650, two CR123's, or two RCRs.

    Thrunite P60 XML. Battery Junction had them a few days ago. Lighthound is cheaper, but I think they're still out of stock.

    Can anybody confirm or deny that the three mode XML drop in here:
    http://www.batteryjunction.com/thrunite-xml-3m-42v.html

    Has PWM or Regulated output?

    Modes are nice. But when nasty PWM is around only high is worth anything.

    I have one nice drop that is three mode and no PWM. I wish I knew where I could get another!

    Check out Dereelight XM-L,..they have no noticeable PWM, even on Low.

    Also, they have 3C & 4A neutral tints available {you have to ask for the 4A}
    I should be getting a Low Voltage 4A pill by end of week or early next.

    Hi everyone. I hope I dont sound like a broken record and apologize for not wanting to sift through 35pages of posts, but can anyone suggest a HIGH QUALITY 3mode drop in that doesnt cost a fortune? A tall order I know but I would appreciate any help you can offer.
