    Bulb opening of these reflectors are for use with T-1.5 buls and too small for LEDs.

    Any chance we could get a version of this that will work with standard e-series Surefire/Lumens Factory bulbs and the e-series LED drop-ins?

    I would love something like that on my Vital Gear FB3 and non-adjustable so that it's always in focus.

    You mean the Veleno designs drop-ins, or the LumensFactory ones?

    Don't they both work the same? I didn't know lumens factory had an e-series led drop in.

    The Veleno Designs LED fits in a stock SF head, whereas the LF one has its own reflector, and requires a LF head. Think of the same form factor as P60 drop-ins, but sized for E series; pretty cool!

    Let me first start off by saying that I am new to the incandescent world but the allure of icans takes me back to my youth when every summer at camp, all I had was a chrome rayovac and some comic books to pass the time. Flash forward 25 years and here I am, a newly indoctrinated flashaholic discovering the frontiers of the CPF community. I'm finally ready for my first incandescent experience, and who better than FiveMega to be my first ... Listen to this ... I just got my E2 Mini Turbo head, and wow, I got really excited. I actually ordered the E2 mini turbo head without realizing that I needed a bi-pin socket, OH NO!! So I quickly went on the marketplace hoping that someone out there would help me out.. Dan McCormack to my rescue and sold me one of his!! Thanks Dan!! I loaded a fresh bulb into my bi-pin socket and screwed it all together with a big grin on my face, ready to enjoy the warm glow of incandescent goodness... and then I hear the dreaded sound!!! POP!!! The bulb blew and my new E2 Mini Turbo head looked like a white smokey mess inside. OH NO, WHAT HAVE I DONE!!!!! So now, how do I open the head up so I can clean out the broken bulb and wipe the reflector clean? What a mess. Am I out of luck? Has this happened to anyone else? I don't want anyone to think poorly of FM and his great products. This was surely my fault and I know that I should have been more careful. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for listening

    Are the Bi-Pin sockets still available for this upgrade. Also can it be used with normal CR123A cells?

    In that case, can the reflector be opened up to fit a Veleno dropin? If so, do I want to use a teardrop-edition Veleno, or a hex-head-edition Veleno?

    Alternately, I suppose you could use an E2-Fire body, as they come with their own bi-pin bulb holder.

    The issue is that this head, together with FM's no-longer-produced custom socket, is engineered to focus with ONLY two lamps; one is the readily available Carly CL1499; the other is the FM1794 (custom-made by Carly for FM), available from only one source (not FM). Other bi-pin bulbs like Streamlight (Strion, TL-3, etc.), when used with FM's socket, are too short; they won't focus. Stock Surefire LAs, as well as LumensFactory LAs, are also too short.

    The socket in the E2-Fire body sits even further back. With this head on that body, none of the above lamps/LAs will focus; including the 1499 and 1794.

    It would be nice if FM made a turbo-head that would focus with "stock length" lamp assemblies. It could be used on stock/custom E series bodies with all the stock/aftermarket E series incandescent LAs, as well as custom E series LED tower modules (like Veleno Designs'). It could also then be used on the E2-Fire with the 1499 and 1794; in other words, design a turbo-head that could be used anywhere a stock E series bezel can.

    Just received my head (with 30% discount!), and will put a 1794 bulb in it.
    Hope it does give the promised output with 18350 cells too!

    I could not be alone when I lament that I would not mind if these heads were again available. Though I do not doubt the claim they are not rare, I am having a heck of a time finding any loose incan E Series heads (c'mon Lumens Factory incan E heads!). Perhaps naked2 has a point, however. If a FM E2 Mini Turbo head were redesigned to be focused for stock lamps, it would make it more versatile, as I imagine a washer-like adapter of the right thickness (if enough threading were available) could transform a head focused for stock lamps into one focused for compatibility with the 1499 or 1794.

    Lucky owners of the E2 Mini Turbo head should come back, brag, and detail how much fun they've been having with it, beam-shots in tow. TIA
