    Odd request.
    can someone take pictures of the pill? The light engine.
    I have a Fatty, but I haven't been able to get a light engine for it. This is proving to be extremely frustrating. If you guys can help me out it would be very appreciated.

    I would have assumed a typical Aleph engine would work. Wrong?

    Correct obi. These Mirage_Man fatties were originally designed to take Aleph L.E with Cree-XRE emitters to be used in conjunction with the Aleph-19-XR reflector.

    As such, I believe that the can used for the L.E was an XR-can

    Here is an example of a Cree-XRE L.E which I sold a long time ago. This would have worked in the MM Fatty in conjunction with the McR19XR



    If I'd taken any photos of the underside, I would have added one here, but unfortunately I didn't

    Thanks a lot guys.
    unfortunately I don't know what an Aleph is or who made it.
    Is it customizable? Could I change the emitter to an XM-L?

    Also, I understand Mac made some pills for MM, will his xml edc.fit?

    Thanks in advance!

    James, I would prefer not to have technical discussions clogging up my thread. The thread was really designed to display Mirage Man customs, not create a public forum on light engines. Please start another thread in that regard if you so choose. Thank you for your understanding.

    I can honestly say these MM lights are by far & away the best lights I've ever seen.I absolutely love them & i hope one day Brian will make me a 1x123a fatty just like the one SILVA loves
    so here's hoping for the day i'm the owner of one of these master pieces.

    Is that a MirageMan head? Lumens Factory offers something that looks very similar.

    Please be kind, AWTYD. It's not fat, it's just thick-tubed. It can't help the way it was made.
