If anyone who frequents this area has not yet gotten one of these mods, I wholeheartedly encourage you to jump in now.

I have 3 of the 2 and one 3 upgrade and would not be happy to go back to the original setup. Make sure you get the boro upgrade too. I melted all of my original lenses before the new ones were offered.

Does anybody know if this CA1499 bulb will fit in a Streamlight TL-3??

If the TL-3 and CA1499 bulbs both fit this Stinger MOD, I'd expect the CA1499 to fit the TL-3 light, HOWEVER, their probably not enough juice coming from the stock TL-3 light to drive the bulb properly. I'm am not 100% sure of this. It's just an educated guess.

Got my kit today. Got more than I expected. I thought I was just getting the 2cell tube. Did not realize I was getting the 2cell tube plus extension for 3cell. Good deal.
:thanks:
Are there any $12 axial 22 watt bulb (FOR 3 CELL NON HP MODELS) left?

Received my order yesterday. The quality of this kit is SUPERB. The range of bulb choices made possible by the ability to use 2 or 3 cells makes this an extremely versatile and worthwhile mod. I am so pleased that it's time to order more bulbs!

:paypal:

5 wa1331 bulbs $30
2 carley axial 22 watt bulbs $24
shipping $5

Total $59

Thanks,
Max

I'll take the following:

1- $38 battery adapter kit
2- $12 TL-3 bulb (FOR 2 CELL NON HP MODELS)
2- $24 axial 22 watt bulb (FOR 3 CELL NON HP MODELS)
2- Borohead upgrades for my Stinger heads.

I mailed out my Stinger heads with the 9aa-3d adapter. I will PM you with this order.

A quick question, since the Pila batteries are now renamed would it be the 600P or the 600S batteries? Also are there any other protected LI-ION batteries that would work with these?

Yes, there are more axial bulbs available.

600P will work better than 600S
When you use TL-3 bulb, any protected 18650 can do the job.
When you use US bulb, most of protected 18650 will work.
When you use axial bulb or WA1331, Pila 600P will be best choice.

Fivemega,

What is the two cell tube plus extension that Keller Kane mentioned?

Could you add a picture to your initial post? Is this extension compatible with the former 2 cell adaptors?

Thanks

Is this just the 3x168a adapter that we're discussing, or is it an actual 2 cell tube with detachable 1 tube extender that is compatible with the 2x168a adapter?

Please post photo to show how it works.

Thanks

Stupid question: Can we get output/runtime comparisons for these bulbs? All the research I've done thus far has been on Mag mods, and I only recognize one of the bulbs here. I'm sure that some other people would benefit as well.

No, I can't break the kit. Sorry.

That's exactly what it is.

This kit will allow you to use 2x168A in your Stinger or convert it to 3x168A whenever more light needed and of course possible to go back to 2x168A

If you are using 2200mAh cells:
Super Stinger bulb will run over 2 hours per charge. (about 100 bulb lumens)
TL-3 bulb will run close to 2 hours per charge. (about 200 bulb lumens)
1499 bulb will run about 70 minutes per charge. (about 385 bulb lumens)
US bulb will run about 70 minutes per charge. (about 400 bulb lumens)
1331 bulb will run about 65 minutes per charge. (about 750 bulb lumens)
