I just picked one of these up on Aliexpress, and I am really impressed by the quality. I didn’t use it much in stock form (not the flashlight’s fault…I never intended to), but I can tell you that it is an excellent AA host. It is MUCH smaller and thinner than I anticipated. With some filing, I squeezed a triple XPL HI V2 5D Noctigon soldered to an MTN electronics copper S2+ spacer under a Carclo 10507, and dropped in one of MTN’s 17mm FET/DD drivers. It’s a tight fit, but it is INSANELY bright for a AA and handles heat very well. I can also confirm that the deep carry clips from both the Astrolux S3/SC and the Olight S1a fit it perfectly. Fantastic little EDC torch!

Wow thats a really cool mod. High output and beautiful 5D tint. Do you have any lumen estimates or comparisons with stock emitter?

I’m not great at estimating, but it was considerably brighter and more “floody” than my BLF X5. I would SWAG it around 2-2.5k. It’s WAY brighter than the stock emitter, and the tint is comparable to my eyes. I know color rendition is supposedly worse, but I’m not sure I’m learned enough to really tell a difference….

Holdon a minute. I’m confused. You’re saying it’s brighter than BLF X5 and you estimate 2-2.5k? Is this really running on a AA battery? That seems unlikely even for 14500.

What battery do you use? 2000lm means ~5A.

My apologies—it’s running a 14500, not a AA. 2,000 lumens may even be a bad guess for a 14500, but I don’t have a great frame of reference. My brightest flashlight is the X5, and it’s brighter than that.

Unfortunately you do have to shave the optic, but it still had quite a bit of real estate to spare. The inside diameter of the steel bezel is about 18mm, and you lose another 1-1.5mm to the lip. It still had quite a nice beam profile imo, though, for what it’s worth. I managed to hose up the driver trying to install a bleeder resistor for a lighted tailcap because, you know, I never learned to leave “well enough” alone, but I will post pictures as soon as I have it replaced!

Thanks for taking the time to answer! Hum, so the optics must be modded to fit properly…Well, that will worth it Wink
The MCPCB also needed to be “shaved” right? If I recall, the triples are 20mm diameter, so it may need a little filing!
Despite the lighted tailcaps ate nice, I don’t use them much, but on this light it deserves one Wink Let us see it when you’re done !!!

14500 is only a urgent selection for strong power need….

It will be some hot and pls attention the overdischarge of the battery.

Rgs

We love flashlights.
