Enogear Copper Cube Teardown & Mods

Modded:Enogear Copper Cube Nichia 219C 4000K - FET15 - 14500 - Rv Clicky Sw - 870lm..

Stock:Nichia 219C 4000K on KD DTP MCPCB
14mm TIR optic
15mm MTN FET driver
Cyan GITD bezel & tail
Upgraded / recessed switch & cover

Max - 870lm OTF
Length - 75mm
Width - 17mm
Weight - 92g with 14500 cell

It took a fair bit of sanding/ polishing to get rid of the rough machine marks on the shell.

Original brass switch cover is not the best design as it can sort of half pop out at an angle when pressed on one side.

I was pleasantly surprised to find the brass bezel and switch retainer are threaded, nice threads in the body & pill.

These are also available in an 18650 version. Shipping was fast, taking ten days from ordering.

See Nicolicous review of this light here.

Slightly difficult to mod but worth it if you can Thumbs Up 

Carbon fibre optional protective carry case with clip.

I’ve always wondered where everyone buy these GITD parts. I would like to buy a GITD gasket one day.
Btw, as always, nice mod. And another flashlight on my wish list…

Nice work!

How do you make the carbon fibre case?

I just made that quick from some spare pieces I had.
It is 20mm x 18mm square tube I had left over from earlier builds with an 18mm brass ring jb welded in place at the front, some 2mm x 2mm magnets in the corners at the rear with a Zero Tolerance knife clip. There is some felt & kapton on the inside for a friction fit.

The bezel has a tube of GITD tape stuck around the inside of the body above the pill.
The tail bits are powder mixed with UV glue. Thumbs Up

Enogear did have an 18650 version but they seem to have closed shop.
These are a pain to modify.
