I’m curious as to how that goes for you. Maybe I should order some drivers in anticipation.

I suggested in the MtnElectronics thread that RMM could maybe do a sufficiently large host order that Jaxman would fill it.
I think enough of us would line up in advance to make it worthwhile to hire someone to pack the parts up and ship them.
It’d be fun to find out how this flashlight shell handles a lot of different drivers and triple emitters.

Thanks Jaxman for being active on this forum, I bought one just now and I am not going to mod it, it’s going to replace my worklight I think the output is good enough. I’ll wait for a host to mod it, my triple XPL EE X6 and convoy x2+ are just sitting there if I need it, I think it will be perfect for my purpose. If you make a host don’t be surprised that you won’t sell as many as you think, people talk a lot of shit when it comes to this..“I’m gona mod this, I’m gona change that!” and sit on the sidelines and not buy it (most likely the peeps who posted on this thread will buy a host because they actually build shit). Kinda sucks with the demands Jaxman. We’ve put two K20’s in CRZ’s in the past year, never once did I ask Honda if they could sell me body in white with no engine so I can mod it.

I agree with you. We are really making a lot of demands of Jaxman wrt their new light, one that has only just gone on sale. For those of you who are willing to buy a whole light to experiment, good on you. $25 is not expensive for a well built host, and the triple LEDs are also worth a bit. It cost me about that much to get a S2+ host and a spacer, and that doesn’t include optics and whatnot.

If the design of the light ends up with some unforseen problem, that would only leave Jaxman further behind with a large quantity of hosts or random configurations no one wants. So I say be patient. Let the first batch of lights go out, let the reviewers do their thing. If things look good, we can proceed with ideas from there.

I do want thermal grease instead of epoxy or silicon.

CRX with 200+HP sounds amazing btw.

Hi Jaxman, I would love to buy one of these, but your Ali page will not let me. I click on my color choice and then try to add to cart and your page tells me to select color again. I have patiently tried every thing I can think of to buy this light. While I would like to purchase one of these, I am not going to waste any more of my time. There are plenty of other lights available to purchase………..please figure out your page problem.

Im not a modder but I sure do like to buy modded lights Smile
Is this light special because it is a triple tube light from a manufacturer?

If the host is special in some way he should slap a premium price on his host if he decides to sell them.
$20.00 bucks a host.

It is special because it’s (iirc) the first mass produced triple tube light, and the host is designed for triple plus optics. No funny spacers needed, plus a nice thick integrated shelf for heatsinking. It is also very affordable, $25 USD for the entire light.

However there are plenty of honest/impartial reviewers around, and good reviews are linked to increased sales. Whilst I don’t mind this approach, Jaxman would probably get more sales if they sent a few lights to a couple of the more impartial reviewers.

We’ll be seeing honest impartial reviews here as those of us (yes, me too) who bought the flashlight get some time with it.

I’m wondering what it’ll take to defeat the glue used to hold the LED in place. Heat gun?

Time will tell.

A few years back I’ve seen members here promising a positive review for free flashlights and not bring at all
shy at all about it.
I think it’s great when vendors call them out on it. Smile

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.

Please understand, we’re weird. Big Smile

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.

I don’t pretend to speak for anyone else, but for me, most complete lights I buy off-the-rack, I leave as-is. Call it laziness. If I don’t like something about the light (blinkies, the UI, etc.), I just don’t buy it, period. Lots of lights I just walked away from, because a review or comment pointed out some annoyance that I really didn’t want to deal with.

Otherwise, some lights I’ll buy only for their value as hosts, and strip them down to parts as soon as I get them. The UF F13, ferinstance. Typische annoying H/M/L/strobe/SOS, but acto an OldLumens vid someone posted, it looked quite moddable, so I got a few. Wellp, 22mm driver instead of 20mm, but doable. C8s? Damn, I’ve got an army of C8s, ready’n‘waiting for whatever LED, driver, etc., that I’d want to throw into it. Same with lots of ’502s and a few ’501s.

I agree that lights shouldn’t be epoxied shut (not unless the mfr has a no-questions-asked warranty in case the slightest thing goes wrong). But using Fujik instead of AS5 (or nothing) shouldn’t get them unnecessary razzing.

Once you open it up, though, don’t count on a warranty. What mfr in its right mind would cover a “hotrodded” light? “You break it, you bought it.”

Still, it’s really nice to be able to mod a light and not leave it bone-stock, if that’s what you want to do. As long as you’re not counting on a warranty, sure, make it mod-friendly.

I’m in no position to demand anything. I’ve asked Jaxman here in the past for a host and been delighted to be offered the opportunity to buy one (and Jaxman made hosts available to everyone here to mutual benefit).

Same situation here — they find out what we like because it’s useful for them to know, and we try to be helpful and not rude about it.

Yaaay, Jaxman! I might just get that E2L I was eyeballing… Big Smile

No hosts are being offered yet — send jaxman a pm and hope they’re keeping a list.

The 4mm thick shelf for the LED is good.
Not as thick as the 7+mm of the Zeusray but I’m not complaining.

Hope this isn’t a silly question, but is there any other way to get the E2L than through AX?

First, AX insists on displaying its pages for me in German, and other than “Klink” and “Schultz” I don’t speak German. (Yeah, yeah, click the set-language thingy, but sometime later on a different page, it’s back to the stalag again.)

Second, I’d rather not set up yet another account on another site, especially if I don’t sprechen sie deutsch.

Was hoping one would be available at GB, FT, Amazon, somewhere

Anything?

I feel your pain. I was very much upset with AE a couple hours ago due to their site glitches. I managed to ignore the language selection glitch but the mobile version Flat Stare I was trying to buy some Thorfire items but the page kept on changing back to mobile view every time I go to another page.

I ended up closing the tabs without buyung the items Tired

we buy light for a brighter tomorrow

Just go to English language site and put “Jaxman E2L” in the search bar if it’s not too exhausting…

..waiting for parts..

Still looking for 5” parabolic reflector (for recoil light)

I am having the same issuues, someone recommended to click on “global site” on Top Right.

I think there were many people asking him the same question about avoiding AX, so I suggested to start an interest group to get an idea on everyone’s preferences and to see the numbers.

I think Jax also mentioned in one of the threads in feedback section that he is now accepting paypal. I don;t know the details though.

Umm, I try to force it to the english site, and it still insists on redirecting to de.aliexpress.com.

Bugger them.

I’m not really understanding your having that problem Lightbringer, I logged in and bought a couple of lights from Jaxman on AliExpress using a Visa card and it was zero issue. They shipped quickly, enroute even now.
