Nice work! I have a few NovaTac and HDS lights that have been sitting around with different issues that I have plans to do this to but have been to busy with other modding.

The original design is great but I always hated the signal spring being so temperamental and not being able to use 18350 batts.

Here is a solution.. CRX Style: (click pic, it links to the original thread)

While that is a very cool implementation I like this mod much better, and 2300 lumens is insane! I know it is probably ten seconds but hey cool anyway.

Quick test:
0s - 2300lm
30s - 2117lm
60s - 1827lm (Hot!)

That's awesome!

I think I'll machine a new pill from copper even though it will still saturate from heat it will take longer.

You're the infamous "CRX" from BLF with all the crazy mods are you not?
