    Default What should I do to my McG PD?

    Alright, Ive decided I want to have DatiLED work some magic on it. its got a WIZ2x2 so 30ma/500ma drive levels and a 1D XP-G in it.
    Please choose an option in the poll and why you would go with that configuration.

    Thanks,
    Mossy

    Nichia 219 30/667 or 30/750. Might as well have Hi-CRI as long as you're upgrading. I don't think that head can really handle dissipating the heat from 1000mA, though.

    Mine is cerecoated aluminum for better heat disipation than ti.

    how many lumens would you estimate the 219 is putting out at 750ma

    I ha mine upgraded to a neutral xm-l with boosted high to 1000ma. I really love it. Also installed trit bezel with new blue trits and the piston went out to precision works for some more trit slots also. Here is a pic of my stock pd vs the neutral xm-l at 1000ma. Also a pic of the beautiful upgraded piston.

    I like the high beam at one amp.. How much brighter will an xpg2 be versus the xpg you have in it now?

    Not sure I think it's 20% brighter at a given drive.

    Datiled upgraded both my Ti PD and my aluminum one with neutral xm-ls. WOW.

    Ti is set below 1000ma for high, I have edc'd it quite a bit. Rocks
