I’ve been looking at your builds and the only thing stopping me is two sons in college and the big pay cut I took at work. Your builds are top notch and soon the XHP-70 dropin will be mine. I do wish you the best in your start up in building a company. So far your reputation around here will carry you far. Yes people his stuff is that good and then some.

I use thermal epoxy.   Arctil silver or Arctic alumina 2 part compound.

$31.15 shipping for one of these? Surprised If they were free they'd still be ~50% more than through your ebay store. Undecided

Hi Gj,

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.    Something is definitely set up wrong.    If you in NY the only way shipping should be $31+ would be express mail.

I must have the weight or something entered wrong.

Only $27.85 now, and it doesn't increase with quantity anymore, at least for the small stuff I tried like LEDs & the heat sink. The XHP70 Mag light is 32.40 for one, 36.54 for two, 43.55 for three. (Not actually considering buying three of those. Money Mouth Laughing)

Hmmm...     I will do my best to get to the bottom of this.      I appreciate your feedback on it.

When you get to the check out which services are you being offered if you have only a small item like a sinkpad in cart?

Ah, I see. There was no options for shipping until I went further down the checkout path. After entering my address again (Why collect it at registration if not to use it as a possible shipping address?) I get a page with shipping options. For one 10mm xp sinkpad the options are:

USPS First Class - $2.74

USPS Priority Mail - $6.40

USPS Priority Mail Express - $27.85

 

$3.14 for one heat sink, $3.54 for two...

Bump for good guy and great craftsman. This guy's stuff is jam-up!!! For what he does and gives his lights are steals.

It's the simple things that we take for granted that cost us the most

Hey, no problem at all man.    I'm just glad it worked out.    Presta shop is really a good platform, but the changes that do need to be made can be difficult.    Some of which even require rewriting of base code etc.     

The truth is you were still right, there is a small glitch.    Once you have logged in I see no reason why the system should wait until checkout to recalculate the shipping cost.      I would like to get this fixed as well because if it happened to you it has probly happened to others.   Some of which would just move on.


There is not a thread for use of the sink at this time, but if you run into any issue you can inquire in this thread.     They are a fairly simple build since the emitter and driver holes are engineered for readily available parts.     About the only other thing that needs to be done is removing the Mag switch tower and soldering leads.

Right, it's not a problem for returning customers but for someone researching on the internet and seeing that without any indication that there will be options presented later will move on. Imagine someone presented with that registering an account, and heading down the checkout path on hopes of finding a reasonable shipping option.Not gonna happen.

 

I just trued disassembling a Mag. How so you get out that retaining ring? I've never seen that style before without holes for regular retaining ring pliers. Is there a different type out there somewhere or is it proprietary to Mag?

It has so far defied my attempts. Perhaps a pair of needle-nose pliers could be re-ground to fit but there must be an easier way. Undecided

How long is the sale going on? I'm a little nervous ordering before I can even open these Mags.

I always drop the switch out the bottom of the light first ( there is a hex key hole in the center of it).  Once that is done I take a flat head screw driver and lift up under one end of the snap ring.    Once in a while you will have to put a second screw driver in through the switch hole to keep the ring from spinning long enough to pop it out, but usually this is not needed.

The sale is scheduled to conclude Monday of next week.

Your package will go out with tomorrows mail...

I just want to double check something.    When I was looking at that listing just now the way the item was described seem a bit ambiguous about weather or not the mcpcb was included in the sale.   I have changed it now to be more clear that it does not, however if you were under that impression, just let me know and I will stick them in the pack Smile  

Thanks again...

The heat sinks look great, thanks Matt.

 

They were picked up at 2:17 Saturday afternoon and arrived at my local post office at 7:47 Monday morning! Somebody must have switched their decaf to regular. Surprised

I purchased the new 5000lm 6d drop in from you last night. I’ll be running it on 2× 26650 5200mAh. Any idea what I should expect for runtime on high or what the max current draw might be?

Thank you for still making impressive drop-ins for Mags.

Well I got the same drop in about a week and a half ago, it is TITS! I am running two 32650 feilongs unprotected, I get like 3+hrs. Very glad to have this upgrade. One big important thing to note is you must tighten things in the proper order and not too much because of where the oring presses on the lens, I broke a lens like after two days :(, luckily I had spares. And you better have a glass lens or the plastic will melt like asap.

I charge my batteries in the van when I am driving between jobs. I have the vc4 and the stereo I built has a 2amp usb charge port. I want to get a second set of protected cells, didn’t realize the feilongs weren’t protected. I have like 30 protected 26650’s so I may make a sleeve to be able to use them.

*Edit: turns out my runtime of 3 hrs was wrong, using my mag as a hammer to bend over some nails caused it to change modes so it wasn’t running on high but 40% or some other mid setting. Finally managed to reprogram it, found it easiest to only partly depress the switch otherwise I couldn’t do it fast enough to enter the programming mode. Also, I had to physically press the switch twice as many times to enter the mode I wanted.
