So about two months ago I made my own P7 4D Maglite and I've been hooked ever since.
For my next build, I want to do a Silver 2D (or 3D) Aspheric Mag. I have the lens on order and I'll get it in about a month or so. From what I understand, this is a drop in part with no modding needed. (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/50mm-18...s-optics-12834)
I don't really care if the LED i use is a drop in or if I have to build everything custom. I was going to use the Mac's Cree XM-L drop-in but I don't think that's focus-able.
I'm looking for any recommendations for what LED looks best with an aspheric lens, keeping in mind that I'll probably be using 3D Ni-Mh batteries (or some 18650 in parallel if i get the 2D size light). I'll also need whatever recommendation to allow the head to be focused in and out.
Any recommendations at all would be greatly appreciated. SST-50, SST-90, etc... Focus-able drop in preferred LOL
