    is it possible though, to do a single mode 'room sweeper' light that has a regulated driver?
    My Milky E2E Room Sweeper is direct drive on a 17670 cell.

    You could e-mail Scott, and find out for sure if a regulated Room Sweeper is possible.

    PM sent. Once I found the list of projects, it appears I am looking at either:

    Boxter - Multi brightness in KL4 head with Seoul P4 emitter, max output roughly 230 lumens, runs full power on 1x rechargeable or 2x primaries, available in regular or high CRI warm white

    or

    Seoulmator - Multi brightness in KL1 head with Seoul P4 emitter, max output roughly 230 lumens, runs full power on 1x rechargeable or 2x primaries, available in regular or high CRI warm white

    I have a KL4 and a KL1 head, and would upgrade either. So I guess it comes down to which one yields a better finished product, and the cost involved.
    My lights: I've given up on keeping my light list updated!

    My Milky mod has landed!!!

    This is my first Milky mod, and it's the one I have been drooling over since I found CPF - the Project M (eXtreme version). It is another fine example of the premium work I've seen in many posts here on the forum. But, it's much better when I can hold it in my hand!



    It's a warm edition using 4xCree Q4 5Bs. Here are the specs:
    • Host: SureFire M3/Leef 2x18500 (LF3 C2M adapter) (also have Leef 2x18650 C/M when needed for more runtime)/SW01 Fatty tailcap
    • Emitters: 4xCREE Q4 5B
    • Heat sink: Solid brass
    • Power Source: 2x3.7v Li-ion or 3xCR123
    • Max Current Draw: 650mAH per LED x 4 = 2.6A
    • Runtime on Max: Approx. 2 hrs on 2x18650 (2600 mAH)
    • Programmed Output Levels:
      • MemoryUI (4-mode): 70L > 200L > 500L > 724L (max)
      • TheaterUI (5-mode): 2L > 17L > 70L > 200L > 724L (max)
      • TacticalUI (5-mode): 724L (max) > Strobe > 200L > 70L > Locator Blink
    A few pics:







    Here is a quick indoor beamshot I took compared to one of the only non-warm tint led lights I have left (Solarforce R2):

    Thanks for the awesome light Scott!!

    The wait on that one can be a bit lengthy but it has to be, it's one of the very best.

    No doubt - I had mudman cj mod my L1 with a Q4 5B, and I've had a hard time grabbing any LED light with a cold tint since...what you lose in lumens you gain back (and then some) in light quality.

    The only thing better than a light with a Q4 5B is a light with four of them...

    Hi Rich. That is an awesome M3 you have there! I hope you didn't have to scavenge those LEDs from Dereelight modules.

    P.S. I'm glad to hear that you still like the L1. It was hard to ship it to you.

    +1, that is a beautiful beamshot. I have that R2 you used as a comparison so I can identify with that matchup.

    Hey, Scott,

    You should have received an Arc LS in the mail, and also in email from me with thoughts about how I'd like to retrofit it.

    Waiting to hear from you.

    Cheers.

    It's an Arc First Run (which is a little different from an LS in its design) and it just arrived. Will email you about it when I have a moment.

    Hi Milky,

    We have a San Jose, CA meet and greed at Modamags home on 12/6/09 and I wanted to know if you can have my L1 R2 direct drive done by then

    I want to show it off because at the last 2 meets we had, not one Milky was present


    Thanks,
    Jose

    Jose, I'll certainly try. There are other lights ahead of yours and I also need to be fair to those folks... will do my best to accommodate everyone, including you relative to the date of your meet.

    Milky,

    Anything you can do with an old 9N? I want tons of bright flood. I envision sort of a Roomsweeper's big brother.

    Does anyone know how much the input voltage of a Milky U2by2 can be?

    Can i run it with 2*Rcr123 (8.4V)....?

    Hey all! Working like a Christmas elf to get a number of things out the door... but came up for air to answer these. (Then back to work! Owe some people lights and trying to wrap up as many as possible before Christmas.)

    Haven't done much with the 9N but I don't see why it couldn't work. We'd want to make sure you have a good quality power source in that light, and beyond that make sure the heatsinking is as good as it can be. Would be a nice build!

    Toby, the U2by2 runs on the same input voltage as a stock U2 would. In most (or maybe all?) cases, 2xRCR123 is a BAD idea. A pair of the 3.0V regulated cells available in some places could work, but those sacrifice quite a bit of potential runtime. Your best bet for a rechargeable would be a single 17670 or 18650 cell.

    M3 Ti Skeletonized

    Working on a minimalist M3 head with Ti bezel ring and a deliberately sparse, skeletonized look inside the head. It's not finished yet but here are a couple photos that give the general idea. I didn't bother to clean the exterior as this is still a work in progress.





    The head is on a Seraph M2C adapter and ultimately will ride on a C2 body bored for a single 18650 cell. The light will feature multi-brightness, multi-UI, miser capability, and reverse polarity protection.

    They're CreeXRE-R2WD. The tint is beautiful... just the slightest touch to the warm side of a pure white... and output is excellent. The narrow exit angle of the XR-E reflectors works to the benefit of the geometry of the M3 with relatively tall bezel ring.

    Scott,

    I never asked, but is my DD R2 going to involve a simple emitter swap or will ou provide one an additional heatsink or modify the stock L1 bezel to accomodate more heat dissipation.

    Also,
    I have your Cynator in my Surefire M1. Is it possible to make this a Mule type of build as opposed to a green. I love my green, but my sweetie wants a pure white tint Sometimes no matter how tuff and manly we are or think we are we have to listen to our better half.

    Thanks,

    Hi, Scott.

    Thank you very much for the list above. They all sound good.

    I am curious about U2x2. I think I would like the mod with XP-G. What kind of performance is it going to be with it? I think it will be close to the one with Rebel, just better.

    Have you done the mod with MC-E on U2? I am interested in that, too.

    I have got the Milky L-1 with SSC P4 USWOH. I like the tint of USWOH very much. In fact, I like it better than the so-called warm tint. If I decide to do something with my U2, I hope I can get similar tint, too. I like the sort of that pink-ish color. It works very good outside.

    I am just thinking about it. Thanks for the help.

    I was fortunate to pick up Karlheinz3's mint McGizmo 2Pak host with a custom machined MirageMan "mule style" flood head housing a GDuP CREE three level light engine - took the McGizmo 2Pak and put the Milky CREEmator on it, just like you - man, oh, man, what a light. It's beautiful - not quite as pretty as yours with the cool ano, but still gorgeous. Then put the MirageMan head on the 1x McClicky - now it's an amazing light, too.

    I think I could be happy with only McGizmos and Milkys....
