would stock surefire lamps physically not fit?
May fit but won't focus.

why do you say this is limited to using a CL1499 bulb, would a Strion or TL-3 bulb not work well?
Strion and TL-3 bulbs are shorter than 1499 and again won't focus.

I'm assuming the Grey would be similar in finish to your E-series bodies?
That's correct and pretty close to $urefire gray colors.

QUESTION: What is the run-time on this setup using the CL1499 and the IMR 16340 batteries?
15 minutes with pair of IMR16340
And 45 minutes using 2 protected 18500


Will the stock Surefire clicky tailcap switches handle the current draw of these lamps?
This set up takes under 2 Amps and I don't think $urefire clicky fail.
It works for me just fine.


What's the size of the reflector, and is it removable?
Reflector diameter is about 25mm with LOP texture and of course removeable.

FM 1794 won't focus in this either?
Will fit and focus perfectly if you have or can obtain one. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I received mine today and noticed that there is some assembly required regarding the Carly lamp. The stems are very long and when installed hit the inside glass of the turbo head. Any suggestions as to exactly how long to cut these or is it just trial and error?

All CL1499 bulbs come with uncut legs or pins. You need to cut and shorten the pins to length of about 4.5mm from buttom of bulb glass.
Make sure to trim end of bulb pins.


I was wondering if your E-series Mini Turbo Head can be used with a P60 type drop in?

No, it can't.

Is there an available 3.7V bulb that will focus in this, to use it with a single cell body (E1, FM 1x 16340/1x 18500, etc.)?

Could be but I never seen this size 3.7 volt bulb.

Now I'm wondering about the 1111. Any guesses, anyone?

WA1111 is G4 and won't fit in FM bi-pin socket. Also it is T2.25 and too fat to go inside reflector.

The issue is that this head, together with FM's no-longer-produced custom socket, is engineered to focus with ONLY two lamps; one is the readily available Carly CL1499; the other is the FM1794 (custom-made by Carly for FM), available from only one source (not FM).

Not true.

I will take #2 black kit with USPS Priority shipping to CONUS with DC.

E2 Black Mini Turbo Head $49.00 + USPS Priority w/DC $6.00 = $55.00 total
:paypal:
Payment Sent (Unique Transaction ID #0EF65984V4502661C)

Thanks FM!!

Thinking of all the possibilities this could open up. I am wondering if a McGizmo 2 X AA body with 2 X 14500 cells will work.

Just a couple questions about this... would stock surefire lamps physically not fit? Also, why do you say this is limited to using a CL1499 bulb, would a Strion or TL-3 bulb not work well?

Very nice looking heads regardless!
