10x for your efforts about that, it seems to be a lovely torch indeed, will post again when i got it

Yet, i was wondering, meanwhile would you be so kind to post here a close detailed photo of those S4 1A emitters ? They could end up being from the “gold ones”….woah Cool

Lol, I bought one with 1A emitters, just to be replaced, I did think about them as being potentially one of the ‘good’ XP-G2’s. I will post a picture, Mitko!

Looks like far too much heat transfer goo.

It should barely fill the microscopic cracks in the metal surface and leave as much metal-to-metal contact as possible.

Unless the “new” means it’s some magic material that’s as good as metal at transferring the heat.

Applause! Good practice.

Unno, looks like plain ol’ Fujik to me.

If it dries rubbery, should be (relatively speaking) easy to pry off.

If thermal epoxy, well, yah, you’re SOL.

Yeah, but the idea here is to help manufacturers educate the folks they hire to build the flashlights — since we can’t talk with the builders directly.

And sometimes the manufacturers miss little things and we early adopters mention them. So I’m suggesting too much thermal goop as worth checking on.

It’d help to know what’s “special” about the thermal goop they’re using, and to hear that they understand how very little of it ought to be used.

Just, you know, nitpicking.

C’mon, is it too much for a guy to ask for his Nichia and shorty tube? Wink

I do hope it’s silicon based. I spent several hours removing a LED star epoxied down to a light once, tried heat, freezing, and enough prying that I eventually split the star into 2 separate halves, both still epoxied down.

Yeah, that’s one of those situations where you just Dremel out the damned thing.

Aw, shucks. They designed it to be uninteresting to folks like us.
What, they can’t imagine a better emitter coming along anytime, ever, that we’d like to swap in??

OR, they wish to ensure the quality of their product in order to have a decent warranty. Wink

Hm. Well, it’d be nice if they’d offer one that’s not glued down, for those of us who expect the improvements in emitters to continue over coming years.

I can see that they’d rather sell entire flashlights as new emitters come along.

hi dears,

If anyone need we use a silicon paste instead of the glue, we sure can do it for you .that is too easy .
but we will do it only our buyer reqire it.
To use a silicon paste is more easy and low cost than now.

We need proper thermal paste... not silicon.

tell me what,the size or the components,dear.

In my opinion,most users will not dissemble a flashlight and change the Lamps by themself.

You are right, for most users it is good to fix everything in place, it makes the flashlight more robust when it is dropped.

But here at BLF we are a bit different, usually we try to disassemble a flashlight even before switching it on Party
And only seldom we are happy with the leds, we want to be able to change them without damaging the flashlight.

It is very forthcoming that you are prepared to make a version of this flashlight without glue but normal thermal paste, thanks for that!

Parts would need to be packaged so that delicate parts like reflector isn’t scratched. This might seem stupid to mention but we’ve had manufacturers send parts all in a pile and reflector is ruined Shocked

Selling the host would be a good alternative also.
TIR is standard 10507 that we can supply easily, as well as triple MCPCB from Noctigon or whatever and driver will be replaced anyway for FET and so on…
Yeah, a host option would be great Smile

Slowly sinking into the dark abyss of addiction...MUST buy lights !

It’ll have to include the MCPCB though.

Looking for:

5” parabolic reflector (for recoil light)

For the very, very small percentage of people that do “tear a light down before they even turn it on,” there are literally hundreds of people – if not more, and yes, even right here on BLF – that don’t. For that small percentage that does do such a thing, to even hint at some type of complaint that Jaxman doesn’t provide such a moddable light is , well, quite self serving at best.

By providing not two, but three different LED options to the consumer for this light, Jaxman has more than covered the base for most of their potential buyers.

I find it rather obtuse to complain about a light available to consumers on a large scale while at the same time backhandedly insisting that their lights and designs would be any better. Different strokes for different folks. One needs to look no further than the design thread for the “vaunted” A6 to see evidence of this.

Mad scientists in their parent’s basement be damned while the rest of us use credit cards on AliExpress to buy Jaxman lights. Wink
