    Still running great (on 16650) even for extended runs on high.
    This light is the best thing I've had for close up stuff, better than any mule etc that I've tried.

    First time adding a pic. Hope you don't mind Nitroz.

    Not at all.

    I think the reflector looks pretty cool like that. And man what a photo! What camera was used for that?

    Yeah the reflector does look pretty cool and the way it smooths and blends the light is excellent. I really like this light.
    Thanks for the photo comment, I was actually trying to quickly come up with something as I had to find an image hosting site in the time I had also.
    The camera is a D7000 but the lens is a nice macro (105mm, f2.8).

    Body bored to accept 17650, or in this case 17670.


    More photos to come later. I blew a fuse on my lathe and had to order more, so it is down until the fuses come in. Arrrggghhh!

    Due to a request for throw I have switched this to a reflector and a XP-E2 torch LED that will be fed 1.4 amps to the LED.

    Default Kroma with McR20s reflector and 5000k XP-L2

    Well this is the first for me. I modded this Kroma with a McR20s reflector and a 5oook XP-L2. I think I have finally perfected the "SF" glow button.

    Here's some pictures.

    Here is another mod from the "Z" factory.

    This time we have a Surefire M1.
    • 22 mode programmable circuit, 1.4 amp high
    • Bored body to accept 18350 cell
    • Machined copper heat sink for maximum cooling
    • Pushes about 400 lumens on high



    Now for the pics!

    Hi,

    Wanting to mod my E2L one level 45 lumens. Just want to swap with a newer and more efficient led to go from current 9 hours to possibly 20 or 30 or 40 or however many hours. Same 45 or 50 lumens is fine.
    Will the same electronics work ? I don't want to change that. Is there a particular led that will work better ? also a warm tint will be good.
    Input appreciated.

    Default Nitrolon 9Z

    Here is a project that I worked on for someone here, I am sure they will chime in once they see this, or maybe it will just be a secret forever.

    This is a Nitrolon g3 that was turned into a 9z, sort of.

    On with the pictures.





    And the finished product.


    And for fun, here is a blooper that will be turned into something special. Basically I thought the person wanted it to look like a 9z and be smooth. Totally my screw up!
