    Hello? FourSevens Are You Out There?

    Do we know that "High Mode" is gone for good? The jump from 28 to 336 lumens seems too abrupt for me. I must admit it will take a lot to displace my original Titanium Quark!

    AC driver dimming solution?!?!

    I made a lamp with 8 Cree XREs 2 X 4 parallel drive from a surplus 16V laptop AC adapter with a buckpuck with integrated dimmer. This was the cheapest solution I could think of using UL listed components. I am nervous using cheap DX class AC components. Works great.

    2xAA host for P60 drop in?

    You can buy the Solarforce L2r (the 2AA version) for under $15 on EBAY. This comes with the Bezel, Body, and tailcap (just add drop-in). I bought the SAND colored one, very nice!
