what does stuffing an XML onto a Nitecore EX11.2 do to the UI ? All same settings available ?
and does it make more lumens, or just change the beam ? or both

Dont cheat me, im expert in using crap light

My latest mod!
HDS 170 (Golden dragon LED) to nichia 219!
Big thanks to Jake, got my HDS in back in the mail today. I have been playing with it all day and it is perfect now, my favorite light with my favorite emitter in it. Can't wait for it to get dark outside.
I have a SPA defense SPL-120 novatac .. Can this be modified? Thanks in advance
Your inbox is full jefff,
yes, ive owned this light before, so i know for sure it can be done. what led are you looking to upgrade to?
my favorite for the novatacs was the Luxeon K2 UVOE from photonfanatic.com.
this will cost about $35 + return shipping.

Are you still accepting work? PM sent.
Any idea on lumen gains if i swapped my hds clicky 200 to xml? Thanks!
you may gain anywhere between 70-100 lumens with an XM-L, depending on which one you choose. But remember that it will be more of a floody beam than the xpg, and when compared, the XP-G may look brighter, because it has a more concentrated hotspot than the XM-L. (XM-L will be a bit brighter than the XP-G, but the XM-L will light up a larger area than the XP-G would.)
PM sent about a mod on a HDS Rotary.
It seems that you've turned off the option to receive PMs.
Not a problem getting this done for you. I had a cool white rotary a while back and hated the blue tint. I foolishly traded mine, which i wish i never did.
All you need to supply is your light and the 219 on a 10MM board from illuminationsupply.
I can get it sent back to you within 1-2 days.
price is $35 + return shipping.
I'm a newbie to the board, just joined today. I've been interested in obtaining a sturdy LED flashlight that is clicky, has multiple output settings, and has the highest CRI possible. I bought a Peak Logan with the Nichia 219 a month ago. Really like the output, but it's very inconvenient for my needs since you have to rotate it with pretty much two hands to get it to the right setting. I'm an oral surgery resident and I spend a lot of time looking in people's mouths, with one hand holding an instrument, and the other hand holding a flashlight haha...
It looks like the HDS Rotary is also a great light, but it doesn't come with the Nichia 219 and after e-mailing Henry at HDS and Craig at Illumination Supply, it doesn't look like the HDS Rotary will come stock with the Nichia 219 anytime soon.
I put in the words HDS and Nichia 219 and your name came up multiple times because of this thread. Can't PM you because I just joined the forum, but wanted to ask you about the mod. I saw that you like your customers to put the Nichia 219 from Illumination supply and then ship you the LED along with the HDS flashlight. Just wondering if it matters which HDS light I buy, for you to mod it correctly?
Can you do a FOURSEVENS Quark[PRO] 2AA?
Hey jake i sent you a pm a few days ago about a mod on my hds. Havent heard back from you.
Seems like the xpg2 would go nice in a hds, anyone try it?
PM sent for an HDS mod. No rush at all, but I'm lookin' forward to hearing back from you.
Can you do HDS140GT to take a xpg2
