    Default MD26E/P60 Drop-ins - single XM-L2, triple 219B, quad XP-G2, XM-L2 Mule, Hepta XM-L2

    Hi, folks!

    I would like you to show you some of my new drop-ins. They are hand made and designed to perfectly fit Solarforce and Surefire hosts. Since they are 100% hand made, custom ones for other hosts or flashlight bodies are possible, too.

    Here are some details:

    • Hand selected LEDs - low Vf and perfectly matched at triples, quads and hepta modules.
    • Copper bonded LEDs in all drop-in models
    • LED-MCPCBs are glued using a Diamond thermal adhesive
    • High mineralic thermal potted electronic (even with diamond on request)
    • Best PTFE sleeved silver plated oxygen free copper wires (22 AWG) - Soldered with best Mundorf Silber/Gold solder (contains silver and gold)
    • Made of one piece of aluminum, some with copper cores
    • Custom circuits with different mode groups and extra functions like additional color modes, a stand-by mode, voltage monitoring, etc.
    • Real off-time mode memory or reset
    • Overheat-, voltage- and reverse polarity- protection
    • Beryllium-Copper springs


    Following some pictures of various models (newer ones at the bottom).

    Just custom orders. But I could offer some of them here on CPF, if there is a demand for quality drop-ins. Right now, the most expensive one is the Quad, which would cost $130, incl. everything. But there are also some special editions like a regulated MTG-2 Drop-in as mule or with aspherical lens, and also the "Hepta Mule", with 7 XM-L2 LEDs.

    I think, I'll keep this thread updated.

    Excellent looking drop ins. These might get me back into p60 lights again.

    What sort of custom modes can you do? Can each level be a specified current?

    these look incredible! i might have to get some solarforce hosts now.

    i would like to know more about your custom drivers.
    whats maximum voltage? how many modes? drive currents and such... is all this better done over PM?

    Details on the drivers would be great - these look very nice and high quality.

    Almost everything. Yes, you could choose individual lumen on each mode.

    Yes, I just ordered some XM-L2 U2-0D, which are perfect for de-doming. They will be direct copper bonded. The new batch will be limited to 3-4 units.

    Yes. There should be a little review on "the other forum" soon.

    2.7-6V for the boost-buck with up to 1.5 amps (88-94% efficiency) and 2.7-4.5V for the linear ones with up to 6 amps. There is also boost-buck prototype with up to 2.25 amps, but it's still a early version with lots of bugs. Custom modes are possible.

    BTW: Following a new RGBW-XM-L drop-in with a TIR/optic. It is very floody, but the beam quality is quite nice and smooth, even on a white wall. No visible donuts or artefacts.

    The quality of these drop-ins looks very impressive! I'm now subscribed to this thread.

    The "Hepta Mule"sounds especially interesting!
    Here is a list of my lights.

    Quad XPG2 or triple XML2, hmmmm. Could you make a triple XML using a Carclo lens? Or only a mule?
    tell us amout the regulated MTG2.

    Dedomed XM-L's use XP-G optics.

    I don't, sprechen sie deutsch so I don't know what it all said but on that German Flashaholic site Vinz also had pictures of an XML build with a copper "hull" or shell for the drop-in. Kind of a game changer for me. The work looks impressive, I can't wait to hear or read more. (I only speak Spanish and English)

    That was basically the first prototype. They are usually made out of aluminium because copper has hardly any benefits as long as you mount the led on a copper pcb.

    Any bean shots of the triple or quads?
    they do look like great quality units though

    hope the specs get posted soon

    yeah I've been trying to get more info to buy, do these fit an actual surefire 6P?

    No it won't fit a Surefire 6P, but it will fit a Solarforce host perfectly. This is by far the most exquisitely made drop in I've even had...great work from vinz!

    thanks, that is too bad, that's kind of like saying you can buy a porsche GT3 crate motor, but it'll only bolt up to a civic tranny and chassis

    Hey guys!

    I had to finish some "aspherical lights" first, but I'll finish some new drop-in models in a few days and will update this thread then. Sorry for the delay.

    LOL! I like the old Surefire hosts too. But have you ever compared a 6P to a P1D? Defenitly not a Civic!

    The problem with the old Surefire hosts is that I can't use the battery tube to dissipate the heat due to many different variations (stock, OR bored, custom bored, etc.). They also had to be much shorter, with a additional spring, to compensate the different lengths of possible switch configurations. Building such a universal drop-in, is just too much of a compromise for my taste.

    Anyway, following some pictures of my old 6P drop-ins (for McClicky switches):
