I really like the Copper Eswitch option

Stock Massdrop CuTool in middle, the other two have LED swaps

I don’t mind the green tint in actual use, unless I compare side by side while whitewall hunting..
My brain quickly adapts its white balance to the environment, our eyes are not as sensitive as my phone camera, to flicker, tint, color, brightness..
And, I can swap the other lights copper heads onto the Eswitch Tool too.

Its fun to have a silent switch.. the regular tool clicks really loud, enough to wake a baby Wink

although, Im still loyal to my Maratac.. actually.. Ive been carrying more than one FlashToy lately


Note the 219C is 24% brighter than the 219B in the worm

E-SWITCH mod done on a Tool vn. No more burning holes in my pants. This turned out nice for what tools I was working with. Angle grinder, files, 100, and 150 grit sand paper, polish.

Congrats on your switch mod

fwiw, the ESwitch won’t give 3 modes with a fully charged LiIon, when using the stock Tool driver
Only high mode works until voltage drops below 3.8v (and yes, I realize the stock tool does not officially support LiIon, but I also know people who do it anyway)

maybe your toolVN does not have mode loss problem, since it may have a non stock driver that is LiIon only

Does your ESwitch work to give multiple modes w your Tool VN? Or do you run it single mode anyway?

I have full access to the UI of driver VN2. I run my ToolVN on 1% 30% 100% No memory. At 850 lumens turn on i cannot suffice with only 1 mode. I just had to reprogram the driver after installing the switch. I had a hard time reaching the programming mode and almost thought it wasn’t going to work. Then after 30min I finally got it to the mode group I wanted.

The TI tail spring seems to be of higher quality material and probably gives a slight bump in output when using direct drive current.

Lumintop was nice enough to let me buy the TI tail cap by its self.

awesome!
I was wondering if they would be kind enough to sell me a copper ETail Smile

it does take the ETail about 30 minutes to charge up the capacitor in the switch that enables the modes above medium, glad its working for you..

you are the first person I know to have tested the ESwitch with LiIon for ongoing use.. great to hear your driver works multi mode with the Eswitch, the stock driver does not, so one more plus for the VN driver.. nice kit Smile

@DIPSTIX Awesome flashlight, I would like to have a Tool VN too but its a little bit expensive Sad

Here is my favorite Tool, a copper with a E-Switch and a Nichia LED and……..it is low-med-high Thumbs Up
Love it and I really like the custom titan button!



I`ve just ordered me a copper with the e-switch from Massdrop, I am very curious how the 219c is doing Smile
And hello Jon, long time no see! I had some health problems in the last months but now everything is fine again.

Greetings!

Sorry for my bad english:-)

the Preon clip is a very cool looking addition .BUT the ebay seller thinks 9$ to ship a clip makes sense . I just paid 14$ for another reg. copper tool (using points at gearbust)…$14 for the clip is just wrong Silly

I want one …just not that bad

I did the switch replacmemt myself by emailing lumintop and asking to purchase a tool TI tail cap.
Successfully made the swap on my Toolvn Cu. The tailcap is handing the current perfectly. I have been using this light for over a year now.
