    That Q5 Mod gives really nice even beam. What kind of mod is it? I bet it wont take long for it to kill the 2xAA batteries

    Nah , the Q5 is 14500 + Lens , so I guess its cheating ...

    But just put up the beamshots just in case people have forgotten how woe full the little incan was ...

    The poor little incan just doesn't work very well. You've either got a hilariously shaped beam unfocused (one big ring way outside, a smaller one in the middle) or a horribly misshapen beam in the center (as shown). The LED version is SO much better.

    Its a very simple mod , anyone should be able to do it ..

    There will be a step by step guide shortly , for anyone that wants to upgrade there incan Mini Mag on the cheap ...

    Cost of a LED + Dummy cell or resistor and any other upgrades such as tail clicky etc . Should cost under $10 USD for the basic mod .
    Resistor and Cree should be like $5USD ..
    And the 14500 is cheap enough , so if you already have a WF-139 or a Trustfire 001 , you should be good to go .

    Ace beam shots thanks, bring on the mod bit!!
    I am even going to dig out my bits of a complete AA mag in the garage ready for the helpful mod update.
    I have modded a few already Romisen RC-F4 and a 3W police special.
