Thank you for the M2 link T18, I like the looks of that! Smile

(about post #183) Hey T18, would you mind slowing down a bit? I can’t really find where your anger comes from but your rants with rather explicit language makes me not want to visit this thread anymore, even though I bought the E2L so I’m curious about what people think of it. I hope that the OP is not scared away by overheated reactions like yours, rather than by discussions over glue Sad

Yes, Please accept my apologies, it’s response to something someone aimed at me, but that’s not an excuse to use the language that you referred to and I will remove that, whether justified or not, I know better, I’m sorry..!

Hmmmm, apologies?? Well sure thing T18, they are accepted; it’s all good. Smile
But honestly, I am still trying to figure out what you are apologizing for. Shocked
I noticed you did delete your rather mild mannered semi-rant post, but I personally found no greatly offensive language in it as was suggested. And certainly nothing so terrible as to keep anyone from visiting this thread.But hey, if that is the case may the door not hit them in the keister on the way out. Wink

I’ll reluctiantly delete my “quote” of your now deleted post… since I will assume that would be your wish.

And if I were you I would not loose any sleep about your post “scaring off” the OP… I doubt he “scares” that easily.

If anything runs him off it will be the reaction to “glue” and requests for 50 or so individual variations of the same light…….. Big Smile
That would be enough to make any manufacturer run screaming for cover…. Wink

Stirring the pot” is generally ill-advised.

I’ll comment further once the light I bought arrives.

As far as I am concerned sometimes the “pot” needs a good stirring. Thumbs Up

Otherwise all the “ingredients” separate and clump together, that makes for a one sided taste for the “soup”. Always give it a good stir before you serve it up!!!! Thumbs Up

Also being the nice, easy going fellow that I am; I will just assume the Stirring the pot” reference above, below my last post; was not directed at me. Or at least not at me solely……… Smile
Because the pot in this thread has been stirred a bunch by several people already, throughout the thread; whether overtly or covertly. Wink

I figured since you deleted your post, and since I strive to be a Southern Gentleman; it was the least I could do to deleted my “quote” of your post. (Even though I personally did not see much wrong with it.)

Yep T18, I would have to agree whole heartily with your “Edit” above. Thumbs Up … Only problem is we are all still trying to figure out what that “something else” is. …… Big Smile

T18, who is Paul? Is it Jaxman himself or a reseller?

If I understood Jaxman correctly, he seems to have the same exact issues as Paul, people who request his flashlight without the “glue” and then they ask him to service the damaged light.

Teacher, that post did contain language that in my opinion in tone and in the use of words should be avoided on an internet forum, and which also would not stand the test against the rules of this forum: I would not like my son to read that post.

You know Teacher, I am so glad to call you friend because it’s time like this when I bow down and appease as always and you come along and kick me in my ass and basically tell me to get some spine and defend myself, that is to me is what a good friend does,
You know I don’t get mad easy least of all post something about being angry if I wasn’t actually angry, it takes a lot for me to go that far, so stir that pot, do what you do best and never ever change,
I’m just getting to old and set in my ways to change who I am and have no intentions of changing who I am,
For anyone curious I am just basically an easy going guy who loves flashlights, and I am respectful of everyone.
I would be happier though if some would show me some of the respect I show them, but maybe that’s just not going to be, beats me, I’ll just keep being me, for real, and decent, kind and understanding of everyone regardless of what stupid things they might say about me or what I post,
I’m not scared of them and won’t stop going to some thread because of some whining or claims of offended nonsense.
I appreciate that T18, I feel the same way. Hey man, don’t even think about changing who you basically are; just be you…. it will all sort itself out. Wink

If you get right down to it there is really very little for anyone to really get “mad or angry” about here on BLF. Pretty much for the most part it is just a bunch of people with a bunch of different opinions. Some do know more than others about certain subjects for sure.

A few even know MUCH more, and not just what they have read either; they know it also from practical experience & use. Thumbs Up…… but they usually have enough sense to stay away from the trivial jousting some of us seem to do. Wink

A lot of us, myself included; should probably take a lesson. Wink

Anyway, it’s all good………. carry on. Big Smile

No really thank you djozz, I was wrong for what I posted and I was also wrong about what irritated me to begin with, so as I mentioned if someone brings their personal feelings to me and says what’s bothering them as you did, you told me you felt offended, also that my post made you not want to come to this thread any longer, not exact quote but close enough, so being I am who I am I just do what is right, respectful and honorable and keeps this community in harmony, well until next time I guess.. ha ha NO problem djozz I have a lot of respect for you personally and I was just wrong, end of story..

What I’ve been fired already?
Oh, sorry misread your very nice comment, thank you, and who says I’m not..? ha ha
Jaxman is my number one vendor, and has been going back to about day 4 of open for business I think, back when it was just Jax, then some issues came up where that name had been used so it was changed to Jaxman.
I’ll back this product all day long and then some and there’s been some talk but I won’t say what really but you came real close to hitting a nail right on the head actually, but there’s another man who would be some tough, established and well very experienced in those matters that I’ve sort of pointed towards to fill that sort of role really, I hope it happens, we shall see as it sure would be better for everyone IMO all the way around to have a Western Rep for a number of vendors really, Jaxman is one for sure, high quality always.. Thank you again… G.

If you have a soldering iron, you can change the E2 UI by soldering stars on the driver.

Is this lighrt 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.

well I dont understand everything here,but it looks like in the case of using triple xpl hi or nichias we dont need spacers?but spacer we use also for better heat transfet right?so is in this jaxman host guaranteed good heattransfer?iam blind..I dont see copper in the head…correct me

The spacer is just to make up for the lack of reflector. A triple optic is smaller so we have to fill that gap. The spacer doesn’t help with long-term heat transfer either, but it does allow short bursts of direct drive for 30+ seconds. It’s possible this might not direct drive well because there’s not a chunk of metal to eat the heat, however, the pill is quite solid yes? It will handle non direct drive just fine, a triple can actually run cooler than a single LED because it’s running at a lower amperage so they are in a better efficiency range.

Feel free to correct me still learning.

Spacers in traditional S2+ (for instance) builds are required because the height of the LED PCB + Optics != The height of the original LED PCB + Reflector. Therefore, something is needed to fill in the excess space, and a Cu or Al spacer is used because they conduct heat well. However, this Jaxman was designed for a triple setup to begin with, so a spacer is simply not needed for parts to fit. It also has an integrated shelf, meaning that the part of the light the LED sits on is actually integrated with the body of the light. This means that thermal transfer between the LED and the body of the light is greatly aided. However, having a spacer means the light will have higher thermal mass, meaning that the light will take longer to heat up.

TL;DR? This Jaxman will conduct heat from the LEDs to the body of the light to be radiated off better than a spacer build, but a light with a spacer takes longer to heat up initially.

aha.ok.but I wanted to use xplhi..thats a maximum you can get in a triple.
so without a good heatsink it will be damaged on dd with fet driver I guess

You can most definitely use XP-L HI in this light (if you can get past the glue Silly . This light will have less thermal mass than one with a large spacer, but will also wick heat away from the LED quicker due to it’s direct thermal path. This means that if you have a direct drive triple with a thermal threshold, it will heat up faster, but also cool quicker. as far as actual results vs a spacer S2+ build, I guess we have to wait until someone does it Big Smile

Hi,

I am confused about something… exactly what is glued to what in the stock light? I saw the pics earlier, but:

- is the MCPCB glued to the built-in shelf?
- is the optic (feet) glued to the MCPCB?
- is the driver glued in (and how)?
- Are the head-to-body threads (or any other threads) glued?

My “impression” is that only the MCPCB is glued to the built-in shelf, to prevent the MCPCP and optic from spinning (and causing the optic to chop off the emitter) when screwing the bezel and o-ring in.

Is that correct?

EDIT: Clarified wording.

As far as we can tell, the MPCB is glued to the shelf.

I would love to see a 1x26650 version of the Jaxman E2L using Nichia 219B emitters.  tongue-out

I'd be up for a mule, as well.

As far as we can tell, the MPCB is glued to the shelf.

Ok, thanks. That’s what it looks like to me, too.

If (note the “if”) that is the case, then, modding (e.g., replacing the emitters with some other emitter) would only encounter the glue because of having to somehow getting the MCPCB unglued from the shelf?

Maybe instead of doing that, could the emitters be reflowed “in place”? I have done that in the past with some lights (Nitecore) using a heat gun. They weren’t triples though…
