WTS (Modded) Thrunite TN4A HI

This sale is for a modded Thrunite TN4A HI. This light was originally designed with a driver and battery carrier that used AA/NiMH batteries only but being as I like max output that had to change. The original driver has been removed and replaced with a contact board with a fet driver piggy backed onto it. The driver spring is bypassed and it has moppydrv firmware on it since the light has an e-switch. There is no low voltage protection set up on the driver and no turbo timer either. The battery carrier has been modified…it was set up as 4s but is now 4p and works fine with button top 14500 cells. The maximum working voltage for this driver is 5.5v so the batteries have to go into the carrier with the button towards the brass spacer and the tail towards the spring…if you put the batteries in the carrier incorrectly you’ll melt springs or worse…batteries. It’s got a XP-L HI cw led and it puts out a very nice beam…the profile is excellent. I tried it with a dedomed XP-G2 S4 2B (old style) and the beam profile was terrible. This light is very comparable to a C8 as far as throw is concerned but the C8 does throw a little further because the reflector in the C8 is deeper. The light comes with a holster and a lanyard. The price is $75 shipped via USPS priority mail in the US only. If you live outside the US I’ll pay the normal priority price but you’ll have to take care of the rest. If you have a light to trade or questions…feel free to PM me.

Wait a minute, you say it comes as a 4S (14500) battery carrier? Love Might have to get one and put a XHP35HI or HD for about 3000lumen in it!

What size is the original driver? And it is a smooth reflector correct?

Yep, the TN4A HI comes with a smooth reflector…the TN4A comes with an orange peel reflector. You’re going to have your work cut out for you on the XHP35 mod. The original driver is 35.4mm, it’s attached a contact board that screws into the underside of the head of the light. I had pilotdog68 design me a contact board that I could piggy back a fet driver to in order to get the most I could out of it. I was wanting to go the XHP35 HI route but there’s no real good way to put a buck in it without killing the driver due to no heatsinking. If you manage to get it figured out…a build thread would be great.

What does the LED mount too/got-ta be a shelf in there, no? I have several now extinct LD-2M2’s that I flip and mount to the LED shelf and wipe the driver clean to be used as a contact board, is this a possibility still?

It should be, I do still have the original driver. I also have another contact board from oshpark.
