Re: A2 $urefire Strion Socket

So, for those of you that have these already, how much brighter is this setup over the standard A2 configuration?

I didn't have another one to compare them side by side, but it was noticably brighter. Maybe a little whiter. Also, hard to say without them side by side. I gave the A2 to my Dad for Xmas, so for him it will mean reasonable cost for bulb changes. He would have used the A2, but not as much when he knew the bulbs cost more than he would expect the flashlight to cost.

To my eyes, it's noticeably brighter. It's also whiter, and has fewer artifacts in the beam. I really like it.

Re: A2 $urefire Strion Socket

How secure is the Strion bulb inside the socket?
It's snug, and the socket fits tighter in the head than the stock lamp, so I'm not worried about it rattling the bulb loose. And given the bulb's lack of mass, I imagine any shock that's strong enough to free the bulb would irreparably damage the light first.

Re: A2 $urefire Strion Socket

Thanks. My intent is to use the TL-3 bulb, since I already have some on hand that I use in my 2x168A Stinger MOD.

The A2 voltage regulator outputs around 4V regardless of input (up to 12V I have heard), so I assume you are foing to change that before you run a TL3 bulb in it?

I could have sworn at one point in time, the 1st post said that the TL-3 bulb could be used. That's the only reason I bought these.
