I celebrate your incan E choice. Some LED comes into the same league as incan, but IMO, is not in the same ballpark, not yet, perhaps not ever, and the only compelling LED choices I see for E is what I would term custom work from Tana, Malkoff or Oveready; worthy product, but it is an investment. Incan is still a cheap thrill, cheap meaning inexpensive, and handful of lamps or incan assemblies and decent Li-ion cells might very well outlast the user.
Mark from Lumens Factory posts in this thread, so he'll know, and I vaguely remember reading something about it in a recent thread with a simple solution, something about a spring I believe. Point is, someone knows. I just looked, and searched, I can't find the thread or remember the details. It was a recent thread, not a few weeks old, requesting bargain 6P options, iirc.
Mind if I pile on the questions for Mark? He's pretty good with monitoring and answering.
I have been meaning to get a couple E heads (for a long long time, since the birth of this thread) with stainless bezels to complete two identical builds. I did not look closely at the pictures until recently, and noticed the stainless bezel finishes appear to be muted, not polished shiny. I was hoping to match the stainless bezels to my shiny stainless Malkoff clips. Is it possible to get a shiny polished finish on those stainless bezels? Thanks Mark.
Thanks! I just placed the order for 2x E Series Elite Heads, 5x HO-E1A 3V, 40 Lumens and 5x EO-E1R 3.6V, 90 Lumens modules. These will be very interesting to try out with my E1L and E2L bodies!
By the way: a question came into my mind: fully charged Li-ions are 4,2V. Can they safely be used with the 3,6V bulb or does the cell need to be below 4V? I have as well 17670 and 16650 cells.
Just got in a P60 to E Series head and a seraph head. Very pleased with the quality as always and will be ordering more of these E series heads.
I ordered these for spare bodies and dropins I had laying around and I think these P60 heads are more versatile than a VME. It’s fits and runs both my nailbender and Malkoff P60 dropins without any issues.
Now for the Seraph head, I cant get it to run anything on a Surefire 6p.
Any suggestions? Or are these made specially for seraph bodies?

Thank you for the nice comments, I am happy to hear that you liked our products.
The Seraph SP D26 heads are fully compatible with the Surefire 6P, but it was meant to run modules with the negative contact spring.
So you will need to put a negative contact spring on your P60 module if you are running one that does not come with one.
I will consider including a negative contact spring with every Seraph SP D26 head unit in the future to avoid future confusions.
If you need a negative contact spring, please email us over at the company email.
Thank you for your order, support and nice comments.
I found that interacting directly with customers is the best way to get in touch with demand for new products and also feedbacks that we can use to improve existing products.
Fully charged Li-Ion are 4.2V, we have kept that in mind so the 3.6V lamps are designed to withstand the higher initial voltage of the batteries so no worries.
Thanks for the answer Mark!
I just have another question: because I have the complete setup of the former Outdoorsman series I also have E2L AA model. So I can run the 3V 40 lumen module with 2xAA as well. Maybe a bit under powered with NiMh cells? But can I use it with fresh 2x lithium primaries? I think these are a bit more than 1,5V initial.
