9 led angle
several friends have seen these and wondered if leds can be upgraded and type of carrier.
i have never gotten my hands on one so cannot say.

Go to Dorcydirect.com and ask them via their Contact or Support link.
They’re very helpful folks in my experience.
Heck, give them the link for the thread, there’s always hope they might come by.

well i wound up with one.
its the new version.has a carrier with a snout with 2 contacts.
harder to mod but doable.
the older one is easy.spacer and 18650.
i doubled the brightness with the ebay hi cri leds and thats even upping to 2.7 ohm from 1.5 resistor.
the head is all plastic so no heatsinking like you get from a hf freebie.so it gets warm with no path to the body.
