    Those look like upgrades for the E-series tail caps! Awesome!

    A grip ring would have either no threads at all or two threads (like the E2M / E2C adapters). I´m with S1LVA, shrouds. Nice to see two slots for tritium vials in the brass one on the right

    Some very good guesses, you guys are sharp. Its the first part of a custom E light:





    The first units have already shipped, with more due later in the month.

    Sorry, no trit slots. Thats more of a trick of the lighting.

    Hey EG!

    Do these have the same design specs as the 4.00 version of the Moddoolar heads?

    Yes, identical v4 engines, with the exception that they are LMH only. They lack the mass to support full time High mode.

    Ah, ok, that explains the LMH only option available. That's cool, since I'm planning to use it on Low & Med most of the time

    Haha! It's probably being held up in e-customs because the term "strike bezel" was used, which sounded too weapon-y and freaked them out

    I'm probably going to get lynched for saying this, but I'm not a big fan of tail shrouds. Are there plans on releasing one with a less prominent tail caps, or has this been added for safety or as an inherent part of the design?

    Rediculously bright on 2x18350. Seems brighter than my Quad R5 used to be, but I don't have it anymore.

    Got my Triple Copper E1e today!

    Everyone already knows about the awesomeness of the X-PG2s so I'll talk about the shroud

    Tail stand this sucker and it won't budge. It's just enough shroud so that the boot doesn't touch the surface, and it's not too deep so that it feels you gotta push your finger way in there to activate the light.

    I've tried out a McClickie pak (which is great, no negatives there!), a Z68, a scalloped E2d, a Delrin shroud, and brass one too.

    This copper shroud is one of my favorites!

    It's hard to explain, but it feels like it's not there unobtrusive even. I'm glad it was part of the light!

    Shoot us an EM, maybe your address is missing/suppressed/filtered.

    I'll see if Tom has some OEM plastic rings handy, see about an option for batch 2.

    Yeah, H3/XPG2 engines are running 15 watts, producing nearly 1700L on two cells (less than 3 amps!). This is true with the E2, Moddoolar Heads, and Drop ins.

    This is a dumb question, but I need to clarify so that I don't break anything. The triple heads of the E1e and E2e are the same right? So I can run the Triple from an E1e body on an E2e body?

    Are there any plans for an e-series Triad?

    Yes an option with an E-series Triad tail will be perfect

    Check out Oveready Insider 38, it showcases these limited lights and addresses how they will be released over the next few months. I lucked out and was able to score a triple copper E1e in the wee hours of the night yesterday.

    Yes you can - I asked Dan in an email as I have an E1e and E2e on the way (I would have photos but I have them shipped to work - I'll get them Monday). The difference is that one is black and one is grey. I ordered one with the 219 and broke down and ordered one with a cool XPG2.


    Interestingly I was on the site about 15 minutes after the email hit and was only able to get the E1e, I went back an hour later to check something and the E2e were available then. So you need to check early & often (just like voting in Chicago - early & often).
