    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Ya, I think you're right. The current E2 Super is definitely not the E2ST that I've had since it was first introduced. I actually like the lower lumen output of the old version, for the increased runtime. 900 lumens from such a small E2 Super head sure would be impressive, and I presume will...

    Mc Clicky

    I've only had one McClicky failure in the well over 10 years I've been using them. All but a couple of my Z41s have them (all from Oveready), my Malkoffs have them, my Moddoolars have them, my Prometheans have them, etc. It and the Elzetta high/low are pretty much the only switches I ever use...

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Wow, the porch sure has been quiet lately. I just received a complete Arisaka 600 series weaponlight, with the E2HT head, It's too bad the E2 Super Throw head was discontinued. It delivers a great throw/spill combination for contact to 50 yard usage.

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    The battery bumper o-rings and the boot retainer rings are not the same. I've got a couple boots with rings in my spares stash, so my guess is that they're a standard product that can be ordered.

    EB1 vs E1 hyper throw?

    According to the info in my Malkoff document, the 10,000 candela from the EB1 would compare closest to the old E1T. The E1HT's lux at 1 meter is spec'd at over double what the EB1 delivers.

    Who would be in on a 100k to 150k group buy thrower?

    It will depend on the size. If it's Hound Dog Super-sized, I'm not interested. If it's Hound Dog-sized or smaller, count me in.

    HD Super vs E-Series Beam Shots

    I won't even attempt to take outdoor beamshots. The Javelot, and a many other lights totally out throw the E2XT, but they don't fit into the palm of your hand. Size doesn't matter much in a handheld light, but it sure does when the light is mounted to a rifle. I need to compare the E1HT to...

    Elzetta- The industry's best kept secret.

    How does it act when the tailcap isn't installed? If you connect the battery's negative contact to the body threads, it should immediately go to high. If it does anything wonky, then the tailcap isn't the cause......since it's not in the electrical circuit.

    Elzetta- The industry's best kept secret.

    Good throw was something the Gen 1 lacked (for those that haven't used one). Are the optics the same for each generation?

    Elzetta- The industry's best kept secret.

    I guess I missed the latest update to the Alpha. I wasn't expecting the output to be 535 continuous lumens from an IMR cell. I've had a Gen 1 Alpha since they were first released, and might need to try out the latest version. My guess is that an IMR cell is required to get the full output...

    Elzetta AVS Upgrade (2021): Bravo and Charlie

    I don’t know how easily that would be accomplished, due to the potting compound. Matching HA certainly isn’t required, but even without excessive OCD, it would annoy me to be that different.

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    I did a run time test on low over a year ago. I'm not positive, but I think I stopped the test after 225 (or more) hours, and the cell was at 3.5 or 3.6 volts resting. My guess was that it would run for at least 300 hours. The run time is basically infinitely long for any real-time usage.

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Either the current M31 drop-in or discontinued M30 series will work from a single AA cell in an MDC body.

    Malkoff M31

    I don’t use the M30W very often, since it currently lives in an emergency-event Pelican case. I also use a. M31N to finish off partially used CR123s, but I’m not reducing my inventory of them faster than I’m adding to it.

    Yep, but the XT slaughters the Super in lux delivery, from a head that'll fit into a cargo shorts pocket. I really like the standard and 1860 Hound Dogs. I haven't used the XT for a few weeks......I should remedy that.

    Malkoff M91

    That's completely nuts. 15 hours of useful output from a CR123 or an hour and a half (or more) of 500+ lumen output from an 18650. I ran the V2 for an evening attached to an MD1.5 fed by an 18500. Output was reduced some, but it was still crazy bright. I have decided that the V1s output from...

    Malkoff M91

    The increase in brightness of the V2 over the V1, which my meter clearly registers, hasn't yet been proven to me to be a practical difference. I'm certain that by Monday, I'll know if the increased brightness is preferred over longer run time. Since the V1 is pretty freaking bright from 4.2...

    Malkoff M91

    They're so good from 4.2 volts that both are attached to 18650 hosts. If I want to use one with an MD3 or 4 body, it'll be from the initial batch. I'm going to do a couple quick tests with a KeepPower protected 3500 mAh 18650 to see how it compares to the AW IMR.

    Malkoff M91

    All measurements were taken from the same INR 18650 25R, and the same two AW IMR 18500s. Lux measurement taken in the center of a small 1/2 bath. Initial Release: 4.2 volts - 1.53 amps max, & 211 lux 8.4 volts - 1.54 amps max, & 286 lux Neutral : 4.2 volts - 2.1 amps max, & 280 lux 8.4...
