    Default Upgrade pill for an old Ultrafire C3

    Hi all,
    I have an old (maybe 15 years old?) 2AA Ultrafire C3, first model, one-mode.
    I had to carry out the "solder blob" fix a few years ago because it did not always turn on, now this is OK but I wonder if there is a way to upgrade it with better, more recent, driver and LED offering a much better brightness (and more neutral tint).
    I'm looking to a "ready-to-use" pill since I'm not very confident in my soldering skills, moreover the "visible" part of the pill in my light seems a little crooked . Any suggestion for such a replacement pill, noting that it seems to be 18mm diameter?
    Thanks in advance.

    I doubt there is a ready made pill for it. Your best bet is to sharpen up your soldering skills

    Itís usually easy. Look at MTE electronics. They will sell a driver with leads already soldered. Thatís half the battle!

    Thanks Paul6ppca, but both Qwant and Google give me several results for MTE electronics, could you please be more specific?
