I love e series. There are more to buy and a couple I plan to have upgraded under the hood.

The malkoff VME head is essential to any e series collection. This is in my pocket today with an m31w.

Thanks for the tip. That is neat.

I just did a runtime test with the e2d incan head on an e1 with an 880 mah 16340. It ran for 55 minutes regulated and then shut off. The light got quite warm, and seemed to be about 30-40 lumens give or take. Useful little setup.

Kernel, Which P60vn copper (nickel plated?) shell fits MDX head that accommodates for hi/low ring?

I didn't know Vinh has two different shells. Heavier obviously for hotter setup's

The heavier "mega-mule" shell is for the 12-LED mule, or special requests.

The hi/low ring and the regular silver ring fits the triple/quad shell.

The “mega mule” shell fits the MDX head, but the rings do not fit to secure the dropin into the head.
The light works without a ring...the drop-in is kept in place by the battery.
I don't see where the ring would ever be needed...the driver spring will absorb the forces when it's dropped.
I keep the Mega-Mule 12-LED mule in an MD2.

Now if you just had to have the ring you can take a dremel to the ring and with little effort it'll fit just fine.

Roger that.. So it's the MD ring (either Al or Cu) ID that is too small and needs to be opened up a tad to fit the mega mule shell.. That's what drum sanders are good for. If not having to remove a lot of meat ID remains concentric

The bottom of the MD ring has a lip that sits on the bottom of the shell...so it doesn't have to stay concentric.

Yea it doesn't take much. in 2 mins I can fit it with a dremel.

I'll put some pics on here.

I'm still in the boat that the fitting ring isn't needed...and the high-low ring isn't needed when you have 6 modes including a "moonlight"

Now the Mega-Mule Dropin fits the VME and is secured if you want to run it on an E-series body. Quad shell does too.
