    The Mako Discussion Thread - A Titanium AAA Light

    Enrique, I sent an order email on the 10th but did not receive a reply until now. Am I on the list or should I try again to send an email? :candle:

    Kl6 reflector plus 1xC-cell body - rendering

    It would'nt be too fat, but since there has to be some space for the light engine, it doesn't go into the head anyway. The frnt end of the battery is sitting just at the end of the KL6 head. I know this would be expensive to have it made, but maybe I can get the opportunity to use a lathe and...

    Kl6 reflector plus 1xC-cell body - rendering

    Gi there, I just had a brain fart and wanted to check whether I'm out of my mind or if there's someone else who thinks this might be worth some more thought. When AW announced his C-sized (well, just about) lithium cells I immdiately thought how cool a single C-cell body fo the KL6 would be...

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    If the heatsink of your L6 is the same as mine, these shims will be (way) too thick. As I mentioned, the shim I used was cut from 0,2mm sheet material, which is ~0.008" in inches. Any more will just put additional pressure on your LED and 0.75mm will eiter crush your LED or keep the heatsink...

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    Resistored "low" setting (47 Ohm tailcap mod I am somewhat proud of, because it preserves the clicky for on/off and lets me choose brightness level by twisting the tailcap) provided 8:30h of runtime with protected RCR123s, then the light shut off. Output is about the same as a stock Fenix L1P...

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    I don't see anything wrong with running this on two 17500s, since the light still has the stock converter that will eat anything from 6-12V. You will of course get more runtime due to higher capacity though. Just did a test, 64 minutes of runtime on two protected RCR123 (nominal capacity...

    Maxlite Seoul P4

    Ok, I searched the huge thread about the Maxlite, but didn't find what I was looking for: what is the drive current of the Maxlite I on high level? I have a Maxlite coming and was also planning to put a Seoul emitter in, so knowing the drive current would be helpful to get an idea of what to...

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    DaFABRICATA, the how-to ist in post #9, there really isn't anything more to it! emitter swap plus shimming => done! :whistle: nanotech17, I'm by no means an expert on LED drivers, but from what I've read so far it depends on the specific circuit of your driver. the KL6 has a buck circuit...

    Opening Fenix AAA Heads (L0P, E1...)

    hi, here are some more thoughts on opening the Fenix L0x-heads. a while ago I tried to open the head of my L0-Ti, but I gave up on it because it didn't move at all and I was too afraid to mess up the finish with more powerful tools. today I read in another thread that EngrPaul has modded a...

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    hi, I don't know from first hand experience, I've just read here that the KL5 has a boost circuit that provides <6V to the LED =>will fry the SSC-LED. :thumbsdow you would probably have to install a new driver, too. regards, david

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    good evening, now a few words about the procedure of "seouling" the KL6. the heatsink/driver is easily removed and re-installed, since it ist only held in place by three little screws. with the gutted reflector, I was able to determine wether the SSC LED would provide a good beam prior to...

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    the modded one is the upper row of course.. :ohgeez: did I mention it was late at night when I posted? :whistle: I just measured current to the emitter (690mA) and voltage parallel to the LED (3.2V). when comparing this to newbies graphs, this seems to be very low voltage for that current...

    KL6 with SSC P4 - throw monster!

    ladies and gentlemen, I've been wondering why there hasn't even been talk of someone entertaining the idea of putting a seoul P4 in a surefire KL6 head. there have been some XR-E mods done to the KL6, with relatively good success regarding throw, but still, the narrow viewing angle of the cree...
