    Has anyone found any cheap lens covers that will fit the KX2/KL4 LED heads? Will any of Butler Creeks covers fit on there?

    Anyone have any ideas? I really don't want to spend $75 on the one SureFire sells...
    I use the plastic caps that come on the propane cells (Coleman) used for camping equipment. They fit perfectly.

    Had a E1L and E2L traded them, regretted it something on the lines of withdraw symptoms. So since then bought E1L, E1B, E2DL now I have LX2 on the way and about to get E2L again. I'm starting to feel better now Not sure about the wife though.

    Have the packages shipped to your business address, and just don't tell her. She doesn't need to know. Why upset her? It's not as though you're buying crack.

    I was partially joking I check the mail and she really can't tell when I get a new light because I have so many laying around anyway. Only way she can tell is if she catches me playing with it like MY PRECIOUS ohhh. It use to be I worried about getting caught playing with something else, kidding of course.

    Really though the tough part we been together so long and I have owned so many new lights she can tell when I am courting a new light or just fooling around with an older one.

    If I could get a X200A I could make one as my KL4 neck is loose.

    I have two E2D's. They are still in stock form. I am new to modding, so I would like to upgrade my E2D's to LED, so all the info is a bit overwhelming. Can you guys recommend a drop in?

    thanks

    I dont think there is a drop in for E2Ds. Only thing is to just buy a KL4, KX2C, or E2DL bezel.

    Or you can go after market. Malkoff M60 with VME head.

    Another after-market option is the TNVC E2 head.

    TMedina beat me to it.

    Those TLS heads work great. Surefire LED heads are another option, but can be expensive. I have two E-series lights wearing TLS heads. They work great. A good combination of both throw and spill.

    Another option, although more expensive, is to send your E2D to Scott (MilkySpit) and have him convert it into a Room Sweeper. (About 600 lumens out the front). From the outside, your light will look stock. He can bore the body to accept a 17670 rechargeable cell. The only downside is that the light will be direct drive. If you want tons of flood, this is your best option.

    Great thread guys. Does anyone know where I can get 2 long pocket clips for my E2Ds ? I do not want the SF Backup type. Surefire can't help because I'm in the UK. Thanks.

    Do you got anymore info as to how that works? Cause I tried it and it doesnt work. See the pics below.





    As you can see below the X200 LED battery contacts are side by side. Nothing like the KL4 or KX2C. So once the X200 head is screwed on, it doesnt work as the flashlight body doesnt touch the Negative contact and the CR123 doesnt hit the positive contact like it would for the KL4.



    here is a pic without the KL4 adapter.

    A new update on the DIY X2E homefront.

    I broke my KL4 trying to remove the LED/Pill module thingy. Broke the wires off the pill.

    However I now have an empty KL4 bezel. I was able to keep the X200 pill and drop it straight in.






    Once I get my KL4 pill repaired and possibly upgraded I can throw that into the X200 bezel for a DIY ICE.

    Guessing that Tempest meant that's what it looked like externally, but probably had a more kl4 like contact patch internally.

    Just looked at what Shelby had to say about it over on USN and you basically nailed it. "X200 head on a black KL4 adapter on an unmarked E body."

    I took a look at the ICE bezel you have and I noticed a drastic difference to that and my X2E head. My KL4 neck has a larger OD than my X200 bezel. the ICE is all the same. So there is a smooth transition from the X200 style front to the KL4 neck in the back.

    I guess I am an E-Series addict on a small scale - E1E, E2o and a E1B.

    Is there a vendor that sells the scalloped tailcap switch or would I have
    to purchase an E2D ?

    The Surefire website only offers the Z68, non-scalloped switch.

    Thanks

    I got my 2nd E2D tailcap off of the CPF MarketPlace. It was mint.

    The MarketPlace is a seperate site. You need to create an account there, then just post a new topic in the proper Want to Buy (WTB) sub-forum for an E2D tailcap.
