I would to use a 25mm khatod since I have a couple of those, so a glass on top will be needed.

So, M1 spacer will fit Khatod quad optics. Similar to X5 spacer, it will consist from 2 parts, but now upper ring from SS will have place for o-ring (this means that glass will be sealed from both sides). If someone will find GITD o-ring with necessary size (29-31mm OD, 1.5/2.0-1.5mm thickness), it should looks great.

Sounds like you’re going for it Kirill.
I’ve always thought the M1 was one of the best designed hosts out there, but that 30mm lens really didn’t leave a lot of options for modding.

If I had to design this combinations for myself, I would prefer single 26.5mm M2 and 30mm M1. I don`t believe in this fins at all. I promise nothing, but if many things will meet, I will show you how do fins should look like. I prefer combinations that have so power that you can keep it in hand until battery is empty. S2-S8 can carry 5-6W, C8 7-8W. I have A6 with custom mid-head (see avatar) and single XP-L HI in direct drive makes this piece of copper so hot that you can fry mosquitos after 3-4 enters into turbo mode. This is less that two minutes, what`s next? I need flashlight for 15 minutes or more, and I don`t understand people that want quad XP-L in this size.

My previous message also means that those who want to use Khatod quad optics can make it in M1 (only). And those who want to build M1 quad will be able to buy kit for Khatod optics (only). Other quad conv. kits will be comparable with Carclo only (in Carclo I trust).

M1 conv. kit upper part is little bigger and more difficult, while 29×2 GITD o-ring much more expensive that I expected. I suppose I will be able to suggest them for $12-13.

If here lots of those that are going to use p60 drop-in with triple? Is it necessary to make additional part (‘liner’) with place for gitd o-ring?

Still have not found suitable GITD o-ring for triple. Anybody knows source where I can find various sizes?
Upd:
24*1.5mm from dx seems the only available variant.
By the way, what do you think about this liner material? X5 and M1 liners will be made from SS, while triple quad liner can be made from SS or aluminium.
Waiting you replies, especially from those who has built X5 with my spacer.

What are the benefits of an aluminum liner vs. a ss liner? The ss liner for the X5 fit/worked great.

I’ve tried the x5 spacer with and without the liner and it works fine… I think the aluminum liner would work as well.

Without liner nothing holds o-ring, so there is no waterproof.
I`m sure that aluminium one can work, I`m worry about transportation damages of upper rim, when I had made crimp driver version pills some users have receiced them with damaged rim.

Oh, I see but if you out the o-ring on top of the lens instead of between the carclo optics and the lens then wouldn’t it still provide an adequate seal?

Once I have damaged glass this way.
I just screw? (past simple) bezel until glass contact tir lens and then tightened little more (o-ring should be under some pressure). It looks great but several days after I took this host and glass was damaged (without any usage). Also I have heard that some guy damaged tir legs with same reason. So it is better when glass and tir dont have lots if internal forces.

Ordered a bunch of spacers, s2+, s6, x5, x6. Shipping was fast just under 2 weeks and everything came in a nice little container that was bubble wrapped. Will be using that container for bits and bobs in the future.

Thanks kiriba¡

What do you mean by “S2+ triple/single pill with RR”? I’m about to order S2+ triple copper pill, is this going to be an improved version or just a new batch?

RR means retaining ring. I hope we will do it.

So should I wait for it? Is price going to be higher? I already have stock brass retaining ring, would copper affect performance positively?

If you want to wait you should know it won`t be very fast, 3-4 weeks I suppose.
Price…It is hard question. Let it happen first.
Retainig ring will be same to stock and made from brass.

Seems that HD-2010 copper pill became little more actual.
18350 cells are available now.
This drivers http://www.cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=2249 and http://www.cnqualitygoods.com/goods.php?id=2248 are available too.
I realise that universal variant would be best solution, but seems it is unreal.
I see two different ways:
1. Make driver place fit one or both this boost drivers. PCB shelf should be little lower than stock for using MT-G2, drivers have big height, but anyway shelf can be thick enough cause driver place can be moved to the tail for single cell usage.
2. Make pill fit 20/22mm FET driver for 2×26350 cells usage. Double cells require more length between tail and pill, so driver place will be near stock, while shelf can be thick enough cause drivers are small height.
What variant would you prefer?
