For something different (non-titanium), here is a MirageMan customised Maglite host powered by 4x14650 LiIon cells (rechargeable from rear port) into which I put a de-domed SST50 with a DerWichtel 5A driver and heatsink. A very nicer thrower which I finished building back in 2012 and used the other night. Its a bit more violet coloured than the photo shows, all precisely and beautifully machined by MirageMan to fit the custom battery holder with charge port in the body and the head finned for a bit more cooling/aesthetic.

Hi,

Im new to the forum and have been lurking for a while prior to setting up an account. Your custom lights look awesome. How do I go about getting on a list / or better understanding the process / making a purchase. I don’t have a FB account.
Look forward to hearing back from you and appreciate your time.

Best regards,
Slickwatts

Wow that really brings me back over a decade. I had a Varabeam from Lambda lights I think it was called. It was my first custom light, 3C config, SST50, 3k lumens if I remember correctly. Kinda miss it should have never sold it.

Do I need an invitation to join the Mirage Man Facebook page? The "Join Group" button does not appear to be operational.

EDIT: Nevermind. It's working now.

Very nice light but FYI it is a 3D Maglite (not 3C).


I know that, it started life as a D light but was set up for C cells. That's why I said 3 C configuration. Not sure why I used the Cs, maybe I couldn't find D rechargeables back then. 🤷‍♂️
