[size=+1]Please read completly before place your order.[/size]
[size=+1]Also see the review here. Many thanks to DM51[/size]

I have made these sockets completly from scratch to fit in popular A2 flashlights.
All you need to do is: Install Strion bi pin bulb on this socket and replace with original lamp assembly.
No further modification necessary.
Output will be brighter than original A2 LA
Get over 45 minutes of briliant white beam with set of 123s
Since forwarded voltage to bulb is regulated to about 4 volts and overdriving Strion bulb, output is much whiter and brighter than any other set up using single lithiom ion, also due to soft start, bulb life will be reasonable. You can also use Stinger low cost bulbs for longer bulb life.
Centering the bulb helps for nicer beam shape and hot spot.
Please do not use rechargeable R123A in this set up since will overdrive LEDs.
Each kit contains one socket and one new Strion bulb.
No extra bulb available.
Please expect to receive within 2 weeks in States and 4 weeks internationaly.
Price:
$32 socket only
$38 socket and Strion kit
Shipping:
$3.00 in States (up to 5 kits)
$4.00 international air mail (up to 3 kits)
It is [size=+3]necessary[/size] to pick next available socket or kit number, post your requtst here and paypal note. Your CPF handle in Paypal note is [size=+1]very very very[/size] important.
[size=+1]Example: :paypal: sent for kit#99[/size]
Any paypal received without above information will not ship.
Paypal: DO NOT PAY
Please, PM me for other type of payment.
Any comment welcome.

Re: A2 $urefire Strion Socket

Are there any comparisons between the stock bulb and strion bulb anywhere? Also, are there any approximate bulb life numbers between the stock bulb and the strion in this socket? Are we talking 10 hours of life for the strion overdriven like this? More?

I found the answer for one of my questions, comparison of Strion and A2 beam: https://www.candlepowerforums.com/posts/2136474&postcount=55

Thanks,

schiesz

Re: A2 $urefire Strion Socket

Paypal sent for kit # 16.
Almost didnt order one since I wanted a second one as a "spare" or in case I get another A2.
Anyway I compared this new socket with your first offering and this one looks "beefier" so thats what
pushed me over the edge to get another one:)
Thanks for listening to your faithful fans!
Happy Holidays!

Re: A2 $urefire Strion Socket

Centering the bulb helps for nicer beam shape and hot spot.
Exactly how is this achieved? Is it a matter of turning the replacement socket like you would a stock A2 LA, or does one have to play with the height of the filament as well?

Bi-pin bulbs sometimes need a little gentle adjusting to get centered - sometimes you need to bend the pins a bit one way or the other, or adjust the depth they are seated to get the best focus.
