Thread: The Malkoff Front Porch

  1. #1

    Default The Malkoff Front Porch

    Here's a place to hang out, swap stories, post pics and discuss all things Malkoff. Talk about your collection, what do you have coming, what is your grail?

    I'll start out with a few pics of my somewhat eclectic collection.

    I have an M61T and it didn't take long at all, for time to tell just how good it was!.
    I am waiting on a V3 219B drop-In from illumn to swap over from the cool white.

    You know it is what it is. A tough no nonsense reliable light.Great build quality, Very versatile due to the fact that it takes all of 60 seconds to go from cool to neutral to warm. And outputs from 20-30 lumens or so to well over 5-6 hundred.And then of corse thereís that customer service that literally is the best that I and many others have seen. YA I think you will be happy with it. What Dropin did you get with it?

    Hey you guys hanging out on the porch....Just got my MD4 body and 22.3 head that will hold the M91BN when it gets made. Meanwhile, I pulled an M61N out of an Elzetta Bravo that I had it in and want to put it in the 22.3 head to play with it until the 91 arrives. This is OK, voltage-wise, for two 4.2v 18650s? Donít wanna fry the M61N. Also, the 22.3 head contained a lens and one gasket and Iím assuming the gasket goes in first, between the lens and the head...right?
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    I hesitated on the Illumn N219 MDC 1xAA and now it's out of stock. Regret not purchasing one, but the reviews said it had somewhat obnoxious PWM so I avoided it. Maybe one will show up on the secondary market someday...

    Great! Charging up a new pair of Keepower I ordered with the light right now. I have a few 18650ís but use them only in single cell lights and always read to only use li-ions in series as matching pairs. Not sure if this holds true with protected batteries but better safe than sorry.

    I'm REALLY looking forward to receiving my Illumn 219. I'm not overly affected by PWM (at least I haven't been thus far). I'll report back what I see.

    Mostly, if you order from a good supplier as a pair they will match well enough.
    Also protected cells are a lot safer to use in series and the PCB will kick in if one cell discharges quicker than the other.
    If you have an analysing chatger you can check whether they match.

    Here she is...MD4 with the M61N...took it out last night...almost forgot how nice the beam is...Ive become somewhat of a high CRI freak but i'll have to say this one holds it's own. Very pleasurable tint and renders colors well. Hope I don't get too spoiled by the long runtime...might not want to put the M91BN in it...naw...but I might just have to look at another host for this M61N...

    That looks nice, much as i like the MD2 for its practicality. I always love picking up one of my MD4s just for the feel and balance.

    Well you will get 2 hours of run with that MD4 and a couple of 18650ís. Forgot about running it off of 3 or 4 primaries. Ouch! .

    Yes, it feels ( and is) very substantial in hand...itís the biggest light I own by far...not so easy to EDC but a fantastic light to keep by the door and around the house or walking at night.

    2 hours...I figured Iíd be getting more out of the M61N but thatís just me guessing...or do you mean when it gets the M91BN?
    Iíve got a bunch of CR123ís I got on sale but I wont burn through them with this...I save those as reserves for the HDS and the SHTF situation. God forbid...

    I may have to get an MD4 now, I was going to go with an MD3, but that looks really nice.

    Ya off of the 91. Hell with that rig and a m61N she will run quite a bit longer then that. 5-6 hours before it dims.
