Thread: High Powered "D" M@g Drop in *Updated with Prototype*

  1. #1

    Default High Powered "D" M@g Drop in *Updated with Prototype*

    The prototype has been completed. To keep cost down the LED used is the Cree-MCE LED behind the 35mm Fraen reflector. As you can see the heatsink is massive thermal issues are not going to be an issue. Now the question how many people would be interested in this at $89 Delivered (US)


    1D size light powered via a single 18650 cell or larger.
    3D Size light with either Alkalines or High capacity NiMH cells
    4D Size light with either Alkalines or High capacity NiMH cells

    Prototype Pictures







    Drop-in module will include 2 1/8th dowell pins for installation.

    I just received two Malkoff XPG drop-ins but I would much rather have these instead because of the multiple levels and higher output.

    Any chance you will make any for a Mag C? Same question a Glock, could these be used in a mag with a side switch removed? I have two Modamag tail clickies that I would like to use in a Mag C that the side switch has been removed/ cut out.

    I would be in for 1-2.

    I'll take at least one. I'd really like to see one with a bit more drive current, like 4-5A.

    These would be designed specifically for a stock Maglite. If there is enough interest I could make them for "C" or "D" lights.

    No problem Mac, completely understandable.

    What would qualify as enough interest (5-10, 10-20) to make them for a Mag C?

    I would still be in for at least one for a Mag D.

    2.8A version for Mag C, 5A version for Mag D would be great

    Yes 5a would be great. But I don't design circuit boards so 5a isn't a reality.

    All the drop-ins would be the same. The options I listed where suitable options for supplying the power to the drop-in.

    I'd be interested in one, perhaps two. Would you use J-bin, 5700k SST-50s?

    I would be interested. The host is so inexpensive maybe this is a good option for lots of light ?

    Where can you get glass lenses and OP reflectors for Maglites though?
    Can a stock swicth handle high amps or does that need to be modded also?

    Would definitely be interested in a C sized version. I've got an 2C sitting here that I've been waiting to make bright since I figured out I couldn't cram an hid in there haha.

    I'm intrigued. Can you elaborate on input voltage requirements? I'm interested in a C version.

    I have a 1D cut to fit an AW C cell. Would that be enough to drive the light? I'm not sure how that compares to the 18650. If so I'm in for one.

    I have another 1D that runs on 4AA Eneloops. Would that power the SST-50?

    Almost... 2800mAh drive barely does the SST50 justice. I'd be willing to pay more to a modder who could get me up to the 4-5A drive range with multiple parallel drivers.



    The C Cell sounds more appealing to me than the D Cell. Get it to even ~3.5A on a C dropin and I'd be all over it.

    Sounds like you're talking max 6v? I think 6AA in 3s2p would be best...
    Also I don't see enough room in a drop-in for parallel drivers. Would changing a few resistors on an existing board be possible? (4-5 amps would be nice who needs runtime anyway)

    I don't know about that....I've read with the bin I plan on using they output 600 lm @ 1.75A so 2.8a should give a slight bump to that.

    Yes........but not for very long. Nimh cells would run the light at full power no problem.

    I suppose a "C"-version with a driver that takes 8.4V would touch all the right spots for a lot of people who have a lonely 2C just waiting to be modded. Like me

    70 - 350 - 950 lumens? approx? on 4 x alkalines? (brighter on nimh)?


    yes, id take 1 for sure

    and maybe 2 or 4 more as gifts.

    pott the electronics please.(happy to pay some extra $$)


    will this dropin require modding the stock mag switch?

    If and when the the big dookie hits the fan, and global chaos ensues, i want a couple of quality AA lights within reach.
