    Question on Klarus XT11S

    The Klarus XT11S is a now very old light. There are many newer lights better heat handling and sustained brightness such as the Noctigon KR1 SST-40, Fenix E35 V3.0, or Convoy M21B SST-40.

    I use a Samsung 50E in mine, though it only just meets the current requirements. Samsung 40T, Molicell P42A or M50A, Sony/Murata US21700VTC6A are other options amongst others.

    The Osram CSLNM1.FY is an excellent orange-yellow emitter. It is full spectrum instead of the usual monochromatic colour emitters. It is available in the Convoy S2+ and some other lights.

    Fenix Fenix PD36R vs PD36 TAC: What Are the Differences?

    Fenix - you really need to replace the alternating frequency strobes with constant frequency strobes. It would make your lights much more marketable to light painting photographers.

    P60 sized led drop-ins (part 3)

    I have three KDLITKER E6 triple XP-E2 colour drop-ins and they are excellent. The Blue XP-E2 is much nicer than the almost violet Forensic/Royal Blue found on most RGB flashlights.
