    Notes

    • 2xCR123s are not recommended. Emergency use only, at your own risk.
    • For maximum performance, use with 18650’s or any size IMR cell
    • Use in 6Ps, C2s, M2’s, and Z2’s for best fit. Not recommended for non Surefire hosts


    FAQ
    • Do you have to cycle through low and medium every time?
      No, the last setting is stored so it will turn on to the same level it was set to when turned off
    • You show batteries in your purchase example, where do I find those?
      This thread is specific to Moddoo products, please see our other thread, here
    • Can I run this in my G2?
      No, these are very high performance and generate considerable heat. Operation in insulated (non metal) hosts will severely degrade the longevity of your new drop in.

    What are the improvements Moddoo made in these new versions? Also, are these using the the same driver (8x7135) as the first batch? What are the drive levels for each mode?
    Have a tritium vial to install? See my sales thread for Norland 61 optical adhesive.

    Nice EG, thanks, great to see its coming already!

    i have a couple of questions, originally i asked for a 1 level driver, but now im curious, could the 3 levels one be used with a McE2S switch?, ie in any level do the 2 modes from the switch (not the drop-in) work?

    i guess the 1 level driver would work with the switch no problems, but if i can mantain the functionality of the switch with the 3 mode driver i could buy that one instead.

    You would not want to mix a multilevel switch (which changes the amount of power going to the drop in) with a multi level drop in (which responds to on/off commands from the switch). Best to go with one or the other.

    Buttrock Re: Moddoo Customs: Triple CREE XP-E (reservations open)

    OK fellas,

    Here's a quick run down of the improvements made to the triples:

    Custom built solid copper LED mounting plate.

    LEDs are soldered directly to copper.

    3 screws hold the copper to a bare aluminum surface inside the solid drop-in heat sink.

    Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound is used between the copper and aluminum.

    Tight clearance between copper LED plate edge and aluminum heat sink result in over 50% more thermal contact area than a standard star.

    The drop-in is hard anodized black for superior thermal emissivity and durability.

    The triple circle logo is milled after the black hardcoat.

    Stiffer conical positive contact spring.

    Custom built copper negative contact fits inside the drop-in to ensure a perfect fit and conductivity.

    24 gauge mil-spec wire with 19 strand, silver-plated copper conductors, teflon insulated.

    I just got back from the shop and threw one together quickly so you guys could see it.

    I like the new changes. The copper and black combo is visually pleasing.

    The lenses are easily changed, correct? I would like to try a clear and then a frosted. Can we order extra lenses with the drop-in?
