No, unfortunately.

This is why I specified the 219C if the LH351D was not available for your purpose.

I will do some research then to see if I can do a mod like that with the LH351D.  Would be nice to have a really special AA light in my collection.

Sorry, but I also forgot one thing.

Kaidomain does sell an SST-20 4000k R9080 LED with a 20mm MCPCB, so you should be able to swap it right out of the SF11.

The MK41 is a nice looking light but a little pricey.  It looks like it’s all throw and was looking for flood and throw.


I did not find a 4 X AA flashlight that is not a thrower. I put DC-Fix on mine http://budgetlightforum.com/node/42208?page=2 Robert

 


I couldn’t find a 4 X AA that wasn’t a thrower either.  Then I might as go with the cheapest one which is the SF11.  Still looks like a great little light.

DC-Fix made my SD4A super nice. I don’t have a before beam shot but I have a after if anyone wants it. Yes it was pretty throwy out of the box. DC-Fix gives it plenty more flood and still retains some of it’s throw.

I'd be interested in the after thanks.  That DC fix, does the film just glue on the lens?  I was always a little hesitant gluing something on one of my lens.

Great, I will search for it and give it a try as I have two SF11's in my cart and will mod one of them to see how it looks.
