Hi fellow CPFers,
I am looking for a modded Maglite "D size batteries host body size" that is powerful, throws well, a little spill & reliable.
I cannot place any orders now for quite a while at Lambda Lights as they are always not taking on Custom Builds at the moment.
I would have loved to get a Varapower V2 Turbo.
So maybe I just need something like a good Maglite that has been Turbocharged.
I have a 4D Maglight with the TerraLUX MiniStar31M-EX LED Conversion Kit for 4-6 D Cell MagLites up to 1000 Lumens (TLE-310M-EX) TerraLUX MiniStar31M-EX LED Conversion Kit for 4-6 D Cell MagLites up to 1000 Lumens (TLE-310M-EX) installed and it has three modes and is pretty bright but it is nearly all flood.
I would like to know where or who I can get a Maglite that has been modded to put out a great throw beam with a little flood (to see where you are going still) beam reliably and without overheating with a reasonable runtime?
I have seen plenty of Mag mods but has anyone discovered the best mod so that the Mag still looks mostly like a standard Maglite?
I have the TK70, Olight SR90, TN31 and Dereelight DBS-T EZ900 Asherical amongst some others already.
The 3D LED Maglite is very spotty but not nearly enough lumens or lux to be of real use to a Flashaholic.
I would like to get a Varapower Turbo V2 light but orders are closed as far as I can tell.
When going to the Varapower website I get this message displayed "The Custom Build List is CLOSED.
Sorry, but we are not accepting any more custom build requests at this time" most times that I look at the website.
I have run both my Olight SR90 and the Fenix Tk70 continuously for over an hour (TK70 running 4 x NIMH 9500mah LSDs) each on the MAXIMUM BRIGHTNESS and never have any battery or overheating issues, but I believe that the Varapower range has shorter runtimes and conditions for using them.
I would like a Varapower in a 3D format as that is the High Quality D size NIMH 9500mah LSDs I already have plenty of.
How long does it usually take for them to start making CUSTOM MADE orders again?
Correct me if I am wrong but does that mean they don't have any standard stock lights except for the custom made ones where you select all of your options?
Update - I just received advice to look in the LEDs section on that website, but there are no 3D size format lights for sale.
I am already crying about it.
