Thread: TorchLAB V5 Triple LED drop ins - Programming, 3500L, Secondary LED

    The wasp and e thread has had a lot of time to build up and gather people's comments. The wasp head containing posts from the original release of the wasp with its bugs and hiccups and comments to how they would be addressed. The e thread was a continuation of the original release of the copper e series back in 2012. So with the v5 triple p60 having 7 pages since its release a few days ago seem about right.

Transplantable from host to host, from bored "3P" sized lights right on up to 2x18650 C-head C-tail offerings depending on your needs. Nevermind the hosts available from Oveready! I truly dig the versatility, not being limited to one size light. Really looking forward to getting mine.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    So can these heads run 2x 18350's and 2x 18650's? I've been given conflicting answers

    Yes you can run them on 2x18350 or 2x18650

    The V5 dropins can be run on one or two LiIon batteries of any size. Use two batteries for highest output (limited only by the battery's continuous current drain rating). The V5 dropins use temperature regulation so they are safer to use at high output than typical step down drivers. If using 16340, 17670 or CR123A then set the maximum light level to a safe value (see the programming instructions for OR suggested limits).

    Shipping notice received this morning. C'mon, USPS! Host ready and waiting. The programming looks very straightforward, well laid out. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to set up two 2-cell programs. 2xRCR for daily max output use, and 2x123's in a pinch. As is, at least the programs are easy to change and save. 1x18650 looks like a whole lot of output.

    Yeah, I'll be happy using a single 18650, reserving the doubles for rare occasions when I need to show off!

    Just wondering if battery stretch is enabled, that the engine would step down when encountering the lower output of a pair of primary lithium cells. I need to find some of my old CR123's...

    We can program whatever we want but, the board can only behave based on what it can sense. In this case, RCR123s and 123's have a voltage overlap such that if it reads 6.0v for example, that could be either. This is the same reason 2x123 mode must be turned on manually.

    One of the things 2xCR123 mode (turned on manually) does is allow for discharge past 2.8v per cell, taking advantage of the CRs greater discharge distance.

    First off, Merry Christmas! Got my dropin in yesterday's mail which suprised me! USPS is super busy but came through... Popped it into a bored HA Oveready 6P with 2x18350's and ran straight outside. The tint is great, the red mode is nice to have and will come in handy. LMH are well spaced out of the box. I got two pretty quick stepdowns every time I went into high, I'm guessing the resistance of my McClicky. Didn't step down with a ZeroRes tail installed. High is very impressive, giving both great spill and very respectable throw. It does get warm, and burn through 18350's pretty quick. I'm flipping the coin between my 2x18650 body and good runtime on high, and dropping to a single 18650 with 2x123 programmed as backup. Single 18650 output is nothing to sneeze at! Thanks, Oveready, it's a monster.

    Great review! ^

    Update
    Most modules purchased from the first batch, have shipped
    Still working on tracking but many will arrive tomorrow

    I'm posting the second batch on Sunday Dec 27th*
    This will be half the size of the first, and mostly clear optics
    They are split between XPL/red and 219/red
    They will be posted alone and attached to custom lights

    The next batch is due in January, twice the size of the first
    We probably won't see more 219 until February or March

    Its all good. Oveready have gotten good at releasing the numbers of dropins required to suit demand. Youll get one eventually.

    I know. I just got a wasp second hand, have been wanting one for quite some time. It's never a matter of "if", but moreso "when"

    How did I miss this thread?? Wow, I am slipping!

    I believe I read all the posts. If already answered, please excuse. Can the optics be swapped by us?? I doubt they can, but that would be really slick!

    3 Frosted show in stock right now. I want clear. I guess I shall wait till tomorrow and try and snag a clear. You guys can have the 219s. I am gonna pass this go around. I am going for pure output!

    Footnote: I have both the Amber & Red. I just freaking love the Amber. Nothing wrong with Red, but the Amber (to me) is just so awesome looking.

    Optics on these dropins are fixed.

    Thats a fact scout24! I have two XPLs OR Triples already and of course tons of 219 lights. The XPL they are using has what I, personally, consider it the perfect tint! When I consider the output differences, the XPL is a no brainer for me. But, I can also understand those who want the OR glory in 219 too!

    Thanks RI, I kinda figured as much. But that is all good. I will wait.

    I don't think they've dropped yet. I've been watching all day. They were down to 3 p60 drop ins with frosted lens as of last night, and I believe those all sold within the last 10 hours or so.

    So did you develop a nice hard callus on your index finger yet or do you need more Oveready products for further exercise?
