Nothing particularly ground breaking or ingenious here. This started as an exercise to get extra use out of the dozen-odd B90 batteries I have scattered around the house.

Step 1: Replace lamp assembly with LuxIII
The heatsink has a TV0J mounted and is being driven by a DownBoy 1000.

Step 2: Machine a tailcap to accommodate the longer B90 battery
Nothing special here, a spring pilfered from a MiniM*g has been fitted in the bottom of the tailcap

Step 3: Remove cam from stock reflector

Final assembly:

Once the light was complete, I realized that the 2C/DB/LuxIII combination is very flexible for battery combinations:

Stock 2C linered down:
3 x 123
2 x Pila 150s (or 150A)

With B90 tailcap:
1 x B90
2 x Pila 168A/S (linered down)

And, if you were fortunate enough to get your hands on one of MR Bulk's A&B battery tube, 6AA's.
