    Cool Tana Light Engines for McGizmo lights (Haiku, Mule) and modding service...

    Use email contact below, please...

    AT LEAST FOR NOW DON IS OK WITH SELLING HIS BEUTIFUL PARTS/HOSTS WITHOUT LIGHT ENGINE !!!
    Prices for his awesome creations are here:

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...-Ordering-Info

    We all know who Don is (McGizmo) and how awesome are his creations... he started as modder loooong time ago and for past so many years he's been selling awesome titanium customs (like Haiku and Mule)...

    .

    Haiku TripLED:

    $260 mod (Triple LED per choice, H17F driver, GITD if wanted per choice... also possibility for Dragon driver/LED setup, email for details)...

    NOTE: TripLED mod is a service - Haiku head (alone, no body, no light engine) needs to be mailed my way - custom pill goes from the bottom (like stock LE), aluminum heatsink, LEDs, optics go in from the front, meet in middle narrow section and wires soldered... ANOTHER NOTE: The mod is reversible to stock condition but will require desoldering wires from PCB, unscrewing pill from the bottom and pushing heatsink out - then replaced with stock reflector and stock/custom single LED LE.... No machining to stock titanium head is being done...



    .

    Haiku SuperLE price (replacement module):

    $140 (Nichia 219C in 4000K or 5000K, XPL HI in 3000K, 4000K, 5000K or 6500K, driver H17F)



    .

    EMAIL CONTACT (not Paypal address):




    Aleph 1, 2 and 3 heads are pretty much exploited fully and proper LE can be built at this point... Haiku might differ slightly from model to model (older XRE, newer XML, XPG2, etc)... generally, upgrading Haiku XPG2 to any modern LED (XPL HI, XPL HD, 219B, 219C, even XPE2 for tighter hotspot) is 99.9% compatible... I still need few days to test with XML and older reflectors...

    History:
    I asked Don if he'd be OK if I sell LE that fit his creations and, being down to Earth and awesome dude, he said he wouldn't mind (as long as stress that these LEs are not his creation and he has no credit in them)... another cool thing that somewhat surprised me (positively) is that he's OK to sell empty hosts... that said, I was glad that I can start a thread like this and that we can now have "something different" from his usual awesome offer...

    Bare in mind, these mods are not meant to IMPROVE on his design or performance... please look at these as parallel universe where more options to his beautiful lights is offered... Don's LEs he's selling for his modular lights are generally - GREAT.

    Hey Tana,

    great to see you offer light engines and TripLEDs for those McGs I think that´s going to spruce up a lot of them.....especially with the possibilities of the LuciDrv drivers.

    In addition to the light engines it would be nice if you could offer copper LE cans for McG lights.
    Thanks, CPF!

    How does this work, do you sell the engine and the buyer swaps it over or does it require the light/head sending to you for the mod.

    Just thinking, would be very cool to have a triple and a mule to swap about.

    Cheers,

    I hope there is a Triple option, but that might be more complicated (though it has been done)

    Need to look into multicolor (like XML RGBW) - depends on the driver clearences... if driver fits, it could be doable for both Mule and Haiku XML head... but first things first before that gets on the plate...

    TripLED conversion is planned for Haiku heads... Mule is just too small... both Haiku and Mule can get replacement light engines (like on that photo, that is made to fit Mule only) so members can swap their own...

    For Haiku TripLED, the head will have to be mailed to - me... Same like with Surefire heads...

    Looking forward to this!!! Interested in the Tri heads for the Haiku, just saw one SOYD made and spoke to him about it. Will yours be removable and able to put the original LE back in yourself, or will it be semi permanent as SOYD are?

    Haiku TripLED is not a module - the whole thing consists of aluminum heatsink with PCB/optics on the front and from the usual engine side there is a new brass engine with H17F driver which screws in - wires go thru heatsink and they need to be soldered to PCB once everything assembled - anyone with some soldering skill would be able to assemble it themselves (if they are uncomfortable to mail Haiku head for me to install it)...

    Also, it's reversible and easily returned to stock Haiku...

    Glass lens sits between two o-rings just like original setup (but thinner, transparent o-ring is used underneath both lens/optics) and it's water tight just as stock is... glass lens is still there to protect optics...

    LuciDrvFT, yes of course... another option will be semi-programmable firmware I call GroupTNT which has some basic most used mode groups (version of Guppy2 firmware)... Top Gun model is H17F driver with Luci2 firmware...

    that is one clean looking mule LE. is it correct to assume the LE's will also be compatible with the sundrop XR-U head?

    It will (but I can't be 100% sure until I have Sundrop head with me and ensure optimal fit)...

    In TripLED for sure... in single LED module not sure at this point...

    I'm interested in the XPL-Hi Aleph L.E. I presume it will work in the Aleph1/2/3 lights too.

    Ideally 4500K color temperature.
