    You'll need to be more specific.
    Do you want flood, throw or a bit of both?
    How much do you want to spend?
    Single mode, multi mode, disco mode?
    How powerful do you want it to be?
    How long do you want it run?
    Rechargeable or Primary cells?

    Give us some answers to those, and we can point you in the right direction.

    If I were to buy a new one it would be for a duty light. Therefore I would go with either a malkoff or (most likely) a lumens factory with nichia 319 80cri. I have one on a carbine right now and am really liking it.

    Not sure what you mean? Lumens factory has been selling a nichia 319 drop in for a while- I have one! Itís nice! Of course Iím also still very happy with my Mx1 neutral malkoff drop ins. Even more than the warm ones.

    Best deal is customlite, best overall is malkoff, coolest is oveready or vihn.

    hello everyone I would like advice for the purchase of a good p60 triple dropin with at least 2 or 3 usable levels
    I like for example the sportac eagletac that I have with triple led nichia with 1 level, but unfortunately I have seen that the model with 2 has a power of 1 lumen which is practically unusable
    thanks for all the answers

    If it were me, I'd go to customlites.com and look for "Solid Copper triple emitter P60".
    You can chosse emitters and number of modes too.
    I use Oveready triples, and this is what I'd buy if i had to replace them.

    The best in class tripple would be the Oveready Triple. But I do not know if they currently plan do make some. The Oveready Triple can be programmed to several configurations and euns with one or two LiIon cells.
    Still looking for Surefire G2 in Orange.
    If you have one you don't like please PM me.

    1 lumen is actually just about right in many environments. May or may not be good for your application but I often like my ~1 lumen modes.

    I've just received a 1.5A current triple XP-E drop-in from Kaodomain with Red, Blue, and Amber emitters. Given the relatively low current, is it still worth wrapping this drop-in in foil, or not worth the effort?

    Not including SporTac drop-ins,, haven't purchased a 'budget' drop-in in years.
    So a while back I took a punt & ordered up a $15 unit w/ XHP50.2 emitter, figured what the heck.

    It arrived yesterday & all I can say is wowzer<<<
    no pwm on low and medium is very bright,, high is almost silly for a drop-in. What a buzz for $15

    now, where are my copper strips

    Any reviews on KDLITKER P60 drop-ins?

    They are offering triple-/quad-LEDs -- some with circuits pushed up to 5A (for strobe mode).
    There are also some reasonably driven to 1.4A (for Single-LED)

    I just put in one of the six dollar, 5-mode R5 (XP-G) drop-ins from BatteryJunction.com. It is brighter and has a better beam pattern than my old R2 drop-in and offers High-Medium-Low-Strobe-SOS modes. Six bucks. Unbelievable.

    Years ago I ordered alot form KD, various parts & stuff:: that tapered off and didn't place an order for a long time.
    Several months back ordered up a 21700 P60 host and was super impressed with the quality and more so, the value.

    Really, it's worth a go on a drop-in & it's not huge money risk,,,, I bet you'll like it alot.

    My 6P was my first ďnice lightĒ as a kid. My dad helped me buy it when I was in probably 8th grade, sooo 17 years ago or so. It was badass, king of the corn maze and flashlight tag, neighbor kids hated me, I was THAT DUDE. Lol then some years went by and it got replaced with an L1 lumamax when I was in high school and then HDS LX2 M3LT E1e tripled etc etc. so a month ago after looking at this thread and the rest of the internet i went and dug my 6P out after All these years and I got on lumensfactory site again and ordered a clicky switch, a new crenulated bezel, as well as their drop in 3 mode LED. The 6P is again one of my favorite lights and Iím very happy about this. With the ability to run primaries or RC, itís here to stay for another 15 years

    I have one of their single mode 319a drop ins and itís very nice. The three mode would be a great alternative to a M361, I just dislike mode memory.

    So I have been searching high and low for a flashlight with no hotspot. Since I have a bunch of empty Solarforce hosts, I naturally was also looking for a P60 dropin. No luck. Closest I could get was a triple or quad mule but then get like 3 or 4 circles of light partially overlapping. Looks like someone with stigmatism looking at the moon.

    How can I make a single LED p60 dropin into no hot spot?

    Sky Lumen. Talk to Vinh, he makes some nice mules.

    Since you're already using a Solarforce host, the "SOLARFORCE L2-CL1 CONVEX LENS" is an option. It's an aspeheric so there's no hotspot in the beam. The resulting circle of light is relative wide (~60 deg.), best for close-up or wide area illumination.

    That L2-CL1 part is only the lens and holder. You'd still need the bottom/copper/brass "pill" section of a drop-in, like the KDLitker ones mention here, for the driver/spring portion. Just unscrew the reflector portion and screw on the lens-and-holder and drop-in.

    That's exactly what I am looking for. I looked at this option but unfortunately I don't use Solarforce P60 dropins.

    I have seen some police using a handheld search flashlight with no hotspot and it lit up a big area like daylight with a hard cut at the edge. Does anyone know what they are?
