    Default FS: DonShock's Mag Mods (SALE ENDED!)

    I need some electric work done on the house, so some of my infrequently used Mag mods need to go. I know sales prices have been down lately due to the economy and I've tried to adjust my prices accordingly. But if you are interested in a light but think I'm out to lunch on the value, feel free to make an offer.

    Here's the group shot:

    SOLD Stubby Set $200 (down from $225) SOLD and shipped
    - SubD size, fits 1D cell, with tail switch. Case included with set.
    - Blue: Shark driver, Quad Cree XR-E LEDs, with optics, 4AA in Modamag holder.
    - Black: Mag85, 3x14500 cells, momentary switch only since it runs the cells at more than their rated capacity. Extra battery pack due to short runtime. CAUTION: These are unprotected li-ion cells. The Mag85 runs at more than their rated capacity so should only be purchased if you are familiar with the dangers of using unprotected li-ion cells. If you do not want this risk, let me know and I can substitute a stock 3 cell bulb and AA alkalines instead.



    Penta Cree $120 (down from $150)
    - Mag2D host, Shark driver, Cree XR-E LEDs, metal reflectors, 8AA in ModaMag holder


    Mag85 $100 (down from $125)
    - Mag4C host cut down to fit 3xAW-C li-ion cells, M2 LOP reflector


    Royal Blue Lux-V $90 (down from $100)
    - Mag3D host, Shark driver with adjustable pot


    SOLD Red XR-C $40 (down from $50) SOLD and shipped
    - Mag2D host, Cree XR-C LED, fixed 400ma driver


    IQ Switched XR-E $40 (down from $50)
    - Mag3D host, IQ Switch levels: 100%, 50%, 25%, slow strobe, fast strobe



    Add $10 to each order (any number of lights) for USPS shipping anywhere in the US with delivery confirmation / tracking.
    If you need extras like insurance or international shipping, contact me and we can work out the added cost.

    I had to go back and look at my sales thread on the other lights I built at the time in order to find out what bin those XR-Es were. They are Q5 bin, WG tint.

    I've never done a full length run, so I can only provide a theoretical run time calculation. Using the 2500 mAh cells currentlyin the holder, the run time should be a little over an hour. And I've never had it get too hot to hold. Again, I can only provide theoretical lumens since I have no way to measure. IIRC, each LED is rated for about 200 lumens at the full 1A of the Shark driver, so the total is around 1000 Lumens.

    NOTE: I didn't think about the fact that purchasers or pre-built lights may not be familiar with unprotected li-ion cells like more experienced modders. I have added a caution to the stubby set that includes unprotected li-ion cells and added the option of replacing them with stock AA alkalines and a matching stock bulb. Sorry if this has caused any confusion.

    Few questions about the stubbies:

    What sort of switch is used in the '85? I'm thinking of using it with IMR14500s, which can take that load continuously, but then I'd want to convert it from momentary to clickie...

    Is the 1185 potted in a PR base, or is there a bi-pin socket?

    I don't recall the exact make or specs on the switch, it is a heavy duty model from a local electronics supply house. It's a good quality $20 one, not a $3 cheapy from the internet.

    As for replacing it, the hole is sized to fit the standard shaft diameter that most of these switches share in common. And the waterproof cover on the switch also fits the standardized shaft threading. Getting the switch replaced is the easy part, the hard part is rigging the switch terminals intended to accept spade lugs or screw terminals to make reliable contact with the tailcap and battery pack. That sometimes takes a lot of trial and error. I can look in my parts box, I may have what you need to do the conversion. I had done some prior work making tailcap switches using some 10A plastic switches and some PCB material that was copper clad on both sides. I may hove some parts left over. Here's a pix of that work:



    Finally, the bulb holder is a Kiu-style ceramic socket for bipin bulbs.

    Both lights take regular 3D alakaline cells. I have no way to measure output, but IIRC the manufacturers stated output at full power should be around 200 lumens on the XR-E in the IQ switch light and 700mw on the Blue LuxV.

    Last chance price drops! There has been little response so this will be the last set of price drops for this sale and this will also be the final weekend for the sale. Anything not sold by Monday morning will be withdrawn and offered free to family and friends.

    Sorry Xuen7, after the failure to communicate and follow through on your prior commitment to purchase the stubby set, I will not sell to you again at any price. Additional research online has shown that your prior commitment to me was not the first time this has happened.

    Xuen7,

    It's primarily based on our first transaction. You stated you would take the stubby set and only needed the shipping costs. Due to the amount involved and Paypal's proof of delivery requirements, that cost was fairly large. You replied that it was too much, which I actually tend to agree with, and did not make payment. All perfectly understandable up to this point, except that the proper order should have been to inquire about the shipping costs first, then only after agreeing to them, then make the commitment to buy. As an example, Benson asked several questions before finally committing to buy. And once he made the commitment, he paid almost immediately. Similarly, the offer on the Red XR-C mag was made by PM so it didn't put off other potential buyers, as your claiming of items when you aren't ready to make payment has done. But even if not done perfectly, the shipping cost problem was a minor hiccup and one I was prepared for and understood even though it took several PMs to get even that response.

    What really put me off was that after stating the shipping cost was excessive you followed up by wanting to buy even more lights, the same ones you are inquiring about again now, and the possibility of freebies. Even then, I was willing to work out the additional purchases, but insisted that payment be made for the purchase you had already committed to making but still had not paid for. Again, more PMs and no answers or payment even when you had visited CPF multiple times after reading my PMs. After several sets of unresponded to PMs with still no payment I assumed you didn't really want the stubby set and put it back up for sale.

    Quote Originally Posted by Xuen7

    Actually, if you had you made that original payment I was prepared to offer these same NIP stock mags I am offering now as sweeteners as you asked about. But since no payment was made and no other response was made to my PMs, no deal was ever completed. So the multiple additional stock mags you are asking about now could have been yours if you had only followed up on your original committment to buy and responded to my PMs.

    I had intended to keep the details of these problems private and not mention more than a minimum of why the stubby set was back up for sale. But your renewed contact after failing to respond to my payment requests on the first committment prompted me to respond more fully. I also find your response to yet another problem on another forum just a few days ago questionable. In one post you mention "... anyways this is my first time dealing in faulty items... what usually happens now? " But in another post just 2.5 hours later you say, without ever giving the seller a chance to correct the problem, "opps... already filed a dispute... i am quite forgetful i usually use the filing of disputes as a reminder.. or at least there is something reminding me that i have stuff to attend to... " So which is it, first time or so frequent that you use disputes as a reminder?

    For all of the above reasons, I won't accept any committment to buy that you make. It is too hard to get the payment completed and it would seem that a dispute is likely to be filed with Paypal. I actually consider myself fortunate that you did not make payment on your original committment to buy now that I have this additional information regarding your behaviour as a buyer.


    Penta-Cree, Mag85, Royal blue LuxV, and IQSwitched Mag Mods are all still available.

    For this matter I would like to first apologies for being un-decisive and making a commitment to you and backing out when shipping cost were too high for me. As for why i when on the enquire on more items after knowing the high shipping cost was because i have the idea in mind that it would be more worthwhile to ship a few more items together making shipping cheaper with bundle deals hopefully. Nonetheless, I
    know i failed to give you a prompt answer when you needed it as i was still deciding to still get it, i mean after all its a good deal to be honest and it is my lost. At the end of the day i made you wait for me too long. Really sorry about that.

    Actually, if you had you made that original payment I was prepared to offer these same NIP stock mags I am offering now as sweeteners as you asked about. But since no payment was made and no other response was made to my PMs, no deal was ever completed. So the multiple additional stock mags you are asking about now could have been yours if you had only followed up on your original committment to buy and responded to my PMs.

    Yes i understand that.

    I had intended to keep the details of these problems private and not mention more than a minimum of why the stubby set was back up for sale. But your renewed contact after failing to respond to my payment requests on the first committment prompted me to respond more fully. I also find your response to yet another problem on another forum just a few days ago questionable.

" So which is it, first time or so frequent that you use disputes as a reminder?

    It is my first time dealing with faulty items, but not my first time dealing with failed transactions. As the items came to me faulty, I do not see a reason that would not justify filing a dispute. I mean if the seller does settle this with me, i would just resolve and dispute and case closed. As i am often forgetful, i am afraid i did not meet the 45 days requirements to file a dispute therefore i decided to filled it. I also explained to the seller about filing this dispute and if at the end of the day there is no wrong on the sellers part and we do come to a compromise, i dont see any harm done and therefore no issue as well so whats the commotion here about?

    For all of the above reasons, I won't accept any committment to buy that you make. It is too hard to get the payment completed and it would seem that a dispute is likely to be filed with Paypal. I actually consider myself fortunate that you did not make payment on your original committment to buy now that I have this additional information regarding your behaviour as a buyer.

    hmm, i always believe that if you did nothing wrong, the dispute would be settled. Its not like i get back my money once i filed a dispute and like i say before 1 wrong gets highlighted and 10 rights wont make it go away. The next time sometime like this happens, there is going to be someone quoting from other forums digging up previous case senarios and using it. I believe if i compare my successful bought transactions you would understand my confusion. Anyways, my fault for failed deal, I am sorry. Good lucks with your sales.

    Penta-Cree, Mag85, Royal blue LuxV, and IQSwitched Mag Mods are all still available.
