Wow…Dale strikes again! That is darn impressive, and seems relatively inexpensive for the output. The tint is also MUCH better!

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I bought the Trustfire 3T6 model back in 2013 when Amazon made a pricing error (I paid $3.95), and I’ve been waiting for another similar “mistake” to pick up a couple more to mod. Not a bad light in stock form, but really looks like it would benefit from newer LEDs and a better driver.

I want a cool white light about as much as I want Cool Ranch Soda.

I put an FET+1 driver in mine, running a single cell. I made a dummy cell to keep it 2 cell length as I like the way it fits the hand. With XM-L2 emitters, domed, and a host of tweaks for optimum performance it’s doing 10.76A for 3946 lumens with an Efest 3000mAh cell.

I like the beam profile with domed emitters, robo’s has de-domed and better throw at a cost of some lumens, but still it’s making a LOT better output than in stock form.

FYI if anyone’s interested in getting the Trustfire TR-3T6 version cheap they’re curently available on Amazon for $4.90 shipped. It’s probably a pricing mistake, but worth a shot.
