    Suggestions, please, for what to do with a 2xD Incan. Maggie.

    You have to run 2 IMR 26650 cells no matter which way you go. You can get those LED drop-in via his website too. http://asflashlights.com/20-maglite If you truly want to stay incandescent you can solder in the Fivemega G6.35 bi-pin kit or get the drop-in G4 kit from Tadcustoms, but you...

    Tad Customs Bi-Pin drop-in kit for C size (updated 6/22)

    Thank you TAD for the info on the screw-on socket. I have concluded that your kit works great with the 10watt and the 20watt bulb you provided. I used the 30watt bulb and it melted the internal plastic shield and the positive contact wouldn't work anymore hence the light would not light up...

    Re: Tad Customs Bi-Pin drop-in kit for C size Maglites review Here are some random pictures of the build in question, which I have not done any resistance mods to it. Here you can see the bulbs get stuck in the stock Maglite screw ring....but not the TAD bulb. That one fits perfect.

    Re: Tad Customs Bi-Pin drop-in kit for C size Maglites review Thank you for the information regarding bulbs...Maybe that explains why the Osram Mag623 builds can be overdriven so much and don't go poof with 4 IMR cells. bigC

    Welch Allyn 06300 12v 20w bulb

    I go to bulbamerica.com and get my bulbs there. You will find plenty of other 6V~36V input bulbs there. What I find is that the 12V bulbs have to be driven with 4 cells. I also found that some of these will flash with this overdrive unless they are bulbs that are rated for 100plus hours. bigC
