    Thinking Newbie here with many questions...

    Hi,

    I discovered this site and have a mini mag that I would like to mod to led. There is SO much information here, that I thought it best just to ask my questions.

    I went to the thread for complete dummies in modifying, and I like how the really bright led mods look.

    My dream modified minimag would be the following:
    1. Modified to use an led or 2 or 3
    2. Tail cap dual mode on/off switch
    3. Fully regulated
    4. Uses standaard alkaline batteries and lasts as long as possible.

    Now, a few more questions: who sales the parts I would need. What is the best mod for my required conditioins. I didn't like the look of the opalec drop in, it looked very dim compared to the others.

    I can do the work myself if I have good directions to follow. I can solder.

    Also, once modified, will it still be controllable from spot to flood by turning the head?

    These questions should get me started.

    TIA,

    Viper

    When looking for MiniMag mods, here's a very good starting point from Auroralite:

    Warning: almost every mod done on CPF is listed so it may take a while to read them all.
