So I’ve been meaning to start this for a few days now. There’s another Brinyte B158 group buy thread, where you can get this budget friendly beast for under $23 from Gear Best, before the $2 upgraded shipping charge. So check it out for more details.
Out of the box and with XML2 5-mode version you get about 58kcd, which ain’t bad for a zooming light. But what’s great about this light is it’s mod potential. It has an easily swappable solid brass pill, so you can carry a few different types of LED/driver combos with you. Anyway I had a spare red pill that I gutted and I put in a BLF A6 FET driver and a factory dedomed XPL HI… which gave me in the neighborhood of 170kcd. But you can easily get over 300kcd if you throw in a dedomed XP-G2, like Kloepper Knife Works did. Here is my mod video, and how I did it.
Anyway this is a mod thread, so post questions comments, and details on your mod.
