LuminTop EDC05 glass lens replacement

Hi All,

My EDC05 that I’ve had under a month has had the lens smash already. Dropped from a height of under 1m and onto wood – surely not toughened glass then? Can anyone recommend the right size lens replacement?

Thanks

Hi again All,

I managed to get a new head from Lumintop, which is great.

Now, to fix the old one. Has anyone modified their EDC05 yet? I managed to get rid of the smashed lens and O ring but the mental retaining ring remains. I thought I could unscrew it like that of the Manker U11 but put on rubber gloves and using the friction to unscrew it, but it won’t budge. Wondering if anyone else has had any success?

Thanks

How did you managed to get it, Lumintop customer service? I have only one lumintop for now, but i have a few coming in, including one EDC05, and is always good to know how to find replacement parts!

I actually contacted Lumintop directly about acquiring a new lens, and Leo responded to say I’d have difficulty doing this myself and offered to send a replacement head for $9 (£6 something for me) which I didn’t think was too bad. 2 weeks later I get a brand new head in the post!

I don’t know at this stage but I’m going to guess it is. I, too, have not seen any mod threads yet. Maybe it is too difficult to?

The bezel doesn’t seem to be glued! Have you tried thick gloves instead of rubber ones? You may need to apply much pressure to make it unscrew! If you got rid of the cracked lens, maybe you can stick something under the bezel from the inside to pull it!

It really doesn’t seem to be glued nor press fit!
But, in any case, you can use a lighter to “unglue” it, if that is the case!
