First the beam shots....
S12 Factory VS S12DD
Outdoor S12DD Left VS S12Factory Right, Fresh charged IMR 26650
Restart after 15min in fridge cool down
Restart after 15min in fridge cool down Exposed Down
1) DD is 37% brighter than factory for the fist 2 minutes. After 2 minutes the edge is not distinct.
2) At 16 minutes DD appear twice as bright as Factory due to extreme thermal regualtion in factory unit
3) 15min cool down restart shows that DD output remain the same while Factory is now brighter
4) Tests were done with fresh charged Tactical LED Orange IMR 26650
1) IMHO 37% brightness increase for 2 minutes is not worth the mod!
2) Deactivating the thermal sensor is the best way to maintain the 800 lumen threshold for as long as possible.
