Well, A 2D host is what I have at the moment and that's about as big as I care to carry on my walks. I am curious however, how many Lumens and how much run time the 3 1/2D's provide?

You can fit 3 NiMH C cells by Tenergy in a 2D Mag. Just take off the paint inside the tailcap and cut the spring really short.

Then just go to Hardware store and get some PvC pipe cut to lengh and use as a battery holder. This is what I do.

With the new 3000K XMLs floating about, has there been any additions in the line of drop-ins?

Hard to say without measuring equipment, but about what my tk30 is as far as brightness but throw is superior. I use a 4D mag and I got my flashlight last week and I yet to charge my batteries. The guy who posted after you made a good point using c-cells instead...carrying a 4D takes a little bit to get used to, but plus side is that I can use it as a batting weapon as well as a blinding light. Just food for thought...

hmm... kinda wish i woulda saw this before i just got my Malkoff drop in... i was wanting the multi mode switch, maybe i'll get this for my 2D i have laying around. Can you run a 2 or 3 AA to D set up or the half D's pretty much the only way to go? i dont' have a charger and kinda am on a budget...

No sales for the drop-ins has slowed to the point that I will not be making another batch unless the demand rises.

The drop-in uses a 7135 chip boards with a maximum input voltage of 6v. It' not a fully regulted driver board.
