Someone making P60 drop ins? I have a request (requires driver programming)
I'm not sure if this is possible, because I don't know if its the host or the drop in that does this, but I shall ask anyway.
I am purchasing a Solarforce L2P host and plan on running a single 3100maH 18650.
I'd like a module that has two groups, one set that operates with the head tight, and the other set with the head slightly loose (1/4-1/2 turn off)
this is what I'd like
400-500 lumens, cool white. With a hot spot and decent spill
set 1, head tight - 100%, strobe, beacon
set 2, head loose - moonlight, 7% (not exact, around 30-40 lumens) and 40% (somewhere around 200 lumens)
with a memory for last used setting.
Is there someone out there who will make me this P60 drop in with those specs without costing me an arm and leg?
I don't mind spending money on good gear so I'm open to suggestions if there is something already out there.
It's not impossible, but with what's available it's impractical. So it will cost you an arm and a leg. But then having multi set modes kind of go against what the P60 format is for. One pill has a specific set of modes, and another pill will have another set. I think that's going to be a much more realistic scenario.
best option would then be to just purchase the 100/40/10 that is widely available and just carry a single AAA light?
Or buying a different pill and changing them over when situations call for it?
The 100/40/10 is pretty good, but I'd like to also have maybe 5 lumens max as a low setting and also be able to go straight to 100% if I need to.
I guess it depends on what an arm and a leg is worth. 200 for a light isn't out of the question, and the body/batteries/charger is going to come well under 100 so I could spend another 100 on a pill without any reservations. Or is that still a low ball figure? I figure making a one off would be more expensive than making 100 or 1000 of something.
Thanks for your advice. I am still interested but I guess it all depends on what $$ figure someone comes back with
So I have been speaking to someone via pm, and I'm told that I need to get onto someone who programs drivers and I have reflected the thread title to reflect that.
a question, can I buy a pill and send it to someone to have it reprogrammed or does programming need to be done before assembly??
Also anyone willing to give this a go would be great. I'm considering buying a 3 mode XML pill to go with the Solarforce and that way I can get the light and start using it whilst getting this project underway.
Trying to make myself a 'one light for all occasions' light (yeah right )
