New Home Depot Defiant 3D Tear Down photos and measurements
I will fill in more later. I just wanted to get the photos up and what specs I had.
Plastic Lens and Reflector. They look to be XP-G2 leds. I could be wrong, but they are small in real life.
I think it is a painted surface.
Might be Ano, but it does chip easily on the edges.

As far as I am concerned, it's not worth modding, but it would be a great 500-600 lumen light for a novice, due to the ability to use D Alkalines. Two modes, high and low. There is noticeable PWM on HIGH, but not on LOW, (with my camera, not by eye).
I believe it is painted, not Anodized. All threads are poor to just passing. The plastic lens and reflector are fair to poor.
As I say, great light for a novice or for the average person who wants a really bright light that will not last long on Alkaline batteries. Drawing 4 amps off Alkalines is like shooting yourself in the foot.
I'm returning it to the store. I only got it to give you guys a look see.
I just measured the leds. They are XP format, not XM format. Probably XP-G2 and it would be about right, 4 amps, 3 leds in parallel, 1.33 amps per led.
