FT03 Osram LED mod?

Would it be possible to slap an osram 1mm2 led in the ft03 for vastly more throw? how difficult would it be?
I’m sorry for posting such a noob question but im really interested in turning the FT03 into the ultimate budget thrower.

You need a suitable mcpcb and driver.
A C8 is much easier to mod (as Geuzz opted for you)

What would the throw/cd be on a C8 modded with the osram?

200 + kCd.

But if you need a real thrower, i am willing to sell my GT to you, (1 MCd ) you are in NL as well

Afraid thats gonna be well outside my budget. not sure what you want for it. but i think i might just wait for the emisar D1Sv2, which will have 500kcd according to Hank

idk about dimension of d1sV2, but i assume it has same size of d1s, then it’s almost impossible to reach 500kcd

someone on reddit made one himself and got to 1km of throw: https://old.reddit.com/r/flashlight/comments/9xnc7x/emisar_d1s_with_new_...

link to a thread discussing the D1v2http://budgetlightforum.com/node/68732

The head on the D1Sv2 will be bigger than on the original D1S

1km of throw requires only 250kcd

if the head of new version is bigger, 500kcd is doable

The problem with white flat in an FT03 is the odd centering ring setup. ZozzV6 knows what he’s doing and has lots of experience, not saying you can’t do it but it’s gonna be a challenge for a new modder to get it centered well.

how did you do it? did you have to swap anything else besides the emitter? do you use a weaker battery in it just so you dont burn out the led?

I used MF02 XHP35 MCPCB and reflowed the Osram on that. On the driver I removed the fet and used the fet PWM channel to add a PCB with 12× 7135s (Cutted a convoy driver in half ) and control it with fet PWM.


So in turbo it using the first channel 7135 also so 13×7135 in total. Which means 4.55A max current.

Osram vs Stock SST40

Man! great job dude, i think i might just wait for the Emisar D1Sv2 for all that bother though.i might start with something a bit easier as my first mod, recommendations? i hear the C8(+) is a great light to mod. any interesting mods you can do with that light?

Buy a host only. Led4power 6A driver and osram led on MCPCB from led4power.com. Set the driver max current in config to 5A. And you can buy osram centering ring from Convoy Aliexpress shop and that way it is not so hard to do it. And you got around 200 kcd.
