Thread: My New (Slighty Modded) Lumintop EDC18

    Default My New (Slighty Modded) Lumintop EDC18

    It's been a long time CPF, but very happy to be back. I have the Lumintop EDC18 to thank for sucking be back into this world. I just wanted to show some pics on my last purchase and some of the simple mods I was able to do.



    Parts List:

    (Since this light is very similar to the FW3A, the same parts can be used)

    I went with the Sapphire Lens over UCL
    The clear Carclo 10507 (just love the pattern) with the green trits from azhu over at BudgetLightForum (azhu is awesome btw. Highly recommend him!)
    You can pick up the same Carclo optics without trits from Neals
    Turboglow Glow Gasket Of course I used the green to match the bunny switch

    My Results:

    Everything fit fine (sort of, see below). I ended up using the bottom of my shoe to loosen the bezel. The optics in the EDC18 are one piece and larger than the Carclo optics, so you will need a lens to help hold in place.

    I ordered a 23*1.2mm lens from Neals, but they sent me a 23*1.5mm. I'm not sure why. The 23*1.5mm still fits, but I still recommend getting the 23*1.2mm if you plan to mod with carclo optics for two reasons:
    1. It would allow for the bezel to screw down enough to not stick up just a bit off the head
    2. If you’re using a carclo with trits from azhu, it would be less prone to overtightening which causes too much flex in the optics and risks cracking a trit.(no good at all)

    A top quality, gorgeous light from Lumintop. With the easy mods I've done here, along with the Anduril UI, this is by far the most useful EDC I've ever owned.
    I'm 100% completely impressed by this light.

    Hi,

    Your light looks really nice. I expect to have an EDC18 sometime in the near future.

    You should try some of these easy mods, if you haven't already. I'm sure you will enjoy it even more.

    If you don't mind spending more than what you spent on the light, I highly recommend these easy mods. It really turns the EDC18 into a very useful and beautiful light.
