Back on the hunt for an LED 2 or 3 mode Solarforce L2 / P60 drop in. High/Strobe if its a 2 mode, High/Low/Strobe or High/Med/Strobe if a 3 mode. Can be with or without memory function. I absolutely do not want a 5 mode.
So far I have only been able to find two options with those features, an Amazon unbranded $10 cheapo with no reviews, and a $200+ programmable one. Ideally I'd like to find one at a more mid range price, definitely under $100 and preferably closer to $40~$60.

Hello, I searched the forums and could not find any answer: looking for replacement glass gasket or o-ring for a P60 host. I was an idiot and ruined a perfectly good one today and can't find one available anywhere. TIA

Ksepticon, maybe consider Lumens Factory.
A package from them is like getting a small treasure..💡



Unfortunately Lumens Factory drop-ins do not have strobe which is a shame. I currently have the single mode triple with Nichia 319A Neutral White (4000K 80-CRI) and the single mirror finish with Nichia 319B Cool White (5700K). I like them so much I ordered two new variations yesterday.

Hi do you need the rubber O ring, or the little threaded collar that holds the lens in?

Does anyone other than Malkoff offer low'ish power, 4000k hi-cri drop-in's, something in the ballpark of 100-200 lumens?

Hi Buck.
Please explain.
if you don't want mode memory ~ (and prior to the new V2 just introduced) stick with a 1-level P60 module.
otherwise, the 2-level circuit is pretty basic ~ it simply remembers the last level used.
ie it becomes a 1-level if you never actually change the output level.
(problem is we forget what level was used, unless you consistently/primarily only use one of the levels). ;)

Cheers
Tod
Mode memory is the devils spawn....!

I picked up a Kdlitker brand p60 drop in that is neutral white, 700 lumens and is going in my little 3P build. I'm curious to see how it holds up over time.

How's it holding up so far? I ordered one with a 3500k 519a.
It didn't work too well with a 3P set up. Works great on a 6P or 9P. I love the more warm tint it makes it easier to identify colors. I definitely will buy more from them as its held up very well.

Good to hear it works on a 6p and 9p. Does it leave much gap between the head and body when tightened down?

Yesterday the KDLITKER drop in came in, 3500k 519a with smooth reflector. Good brightness with 1x li-ion, 2x li-ions and 2x or 3x cr123's so it should run all those just fine. They claim it's also regulated. Definitely not 800 lumens as listed but a good 500-600ish with a nice hotspot. After removing the outer spring it fits well and has the same amount of gap as a malkoff. I don't know what to expect with these inexpensive chinese p60's but if it doesn't break I'll be very happy with it.

Keep us updated on this dropin; looks really good. That excellent photo that has different shades of brown as well as primary red is very useful.

Can you describe the user interface and mode levels/sequence?
