Thanks, yeah a small boost to the 100lm stock light Smile
I tried another slightly different switch signal carrier in this one, flat copper ring with a copper bar soldered on.
Some silicone around the top to give it some spring onto the tail connection.

Great work on this, CRX. Thumbs Up
I’ve been going back & forth about modifying my NovaTac 120P (actually SPL-120), at first thinking a triple might be worth going for, but the FW3A really handles that form factor so well. Love the look of this mod though, I must add. So to keep the effort down, I think I’ll probably go for a single emitter swap.

Btw, I saw a while back last summer a post about a CRX modded NovaTac, an SPL-120. This ended up having an easier pill for modification, as the Noctigon would need less trimming. Was this true for all SPL-120 flashlights? The one I have came with a black anodized bezel…

The other style just over 200lms

Maybe my post in “What did you Mod Today” thread was misleading? This style of pill and driver gets you 500+ lumen’s.. I went back and edited it..

Seems to be a lottery as to what pill you get, I don’t know the defining factor. Date maybe?
The NovaTacs I have modded have had these types of pills, with varying outputs.

NovaTac SPL-120 SSC P4 emitter: 96lm to Nichia 219C 4000K 90+ CRI: 435lm

Novatac SPL-120 SSC P4 emitter 74lm to Nichia 219BT-V1 4000K 90+ CRI: 250lm
Novatac SPL-120 SSC P4 emitter 54lm to Nichia 219C D280 5000k 80CRI: 220lm

Novatac 120-E SSC P4 emitter 106lm to Nichia 219BT-V1 4000K 90+ CRI: 310lm

NovaTac 120P SSC P4 emitter 110lm to Triple Nichia 219C 4000K 90CRI: 1800lm

NovaTac 120T SSC P4 emitter 122lm to Triple Nichia 219C D320 5000K: 2300lm

NovaTac 120T SSC P4 emitter 100lm to Triple Cree XP-L HI v2 1A: 2240lm

That’s a sweet mod CRX Thumbs Up

I’d like to get one of these novatacs as they look like a nice light but I just know it’ll hardly get used (like a lot of lights I own) Tired

Yeah they’re quite nice, I don’t own any either, just mod them for others.
This one was well overdue.

Hm, I think you are leaving out an important feature. Most of your mods are also drool-cooled. Thumbs Up

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I have my Novatac 85T next to me that I already modded with an XPG2. I was thinking of making it a triple, I think you just pushed me over the edge! I still have a carclo optic from a previous mod job, just dropping in the optic and seeing how it would look makes we wanna do it!
