Got these today, my prizes from the scratchmade contest.
I played with the DQG AA for about five minutes before i started disassembling it
The cool white tint version is pretty bad, not a nice tint at all but the light is good otherwise.
For those that have this light and wondering how to access the driver board, the bezel unscrews, the TIR and an o-ring pops out then you will be met by a threaded aluminium section in the head which also unscrews but is glued, you can see in the pictures below i have filed a notch in the top of it to preserve the threads and after some applied heat it comes out fairly easily, that is all that holds the combined driver/ LED board in place.
This mod involves a momentary tail switch, made with magnets and o-ring, a noctigon on top of the pill shelf ring and a 10mm FET driver below it.
