do you know a powerful zoomie with dual control, tail switch and mode button?

I am looking for a powerful led (most lumens) zoomie that has 2 switches: one for mode control with memory and one tailswitch for on/off.. i intend to swap the tailswitch with a pressure pad so i can select strobe or turbo from the mode button and use the pressure pad to power up the flashlight in that mode. Budget: 50$ or less..

i found this: No Name Chinese Flashlight and it ships from Eu too, so that is a big plus.. but there is no brand, the led is a chinese made “XHP99” so it offers me no guarantee that it is better then a SK 68 replica.. Also, both of the buttons are on the side of the flashlight, so i do ont know if replacing the tailcap with a tail switch with a pressure pad will solve the issue..

Can you please suggest something better, i really have no $$ to spend on trial and error.. Also, do you know a spare driver that has this functionality?

not really, that is an odd combination of features

The Fenix FD41 appears to meet all your requirements except $budget.

Perhaps you can post a “Want to Buy” and find a used one.

then what about a really powerful zoomie with a simple driver and on of tail switch? i will make a custom press pad with dedicated strobe integrated and PCB .

i found this driver, is it any good?

or something like this, and just use a flashlight head for the build.. where i intend to mount it, i have room for 2 external 10-650 and just use a wire to the head.

what i need is for it to be blinding at 10-100m in the dark if pointed at you and force th oponent to look elseware.

i will mount it on my airsoft weaapon and use it like in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM68wadgibo

Sorry, no help from me.

Why not throw out the zoomie and get a Osram CSLNM1.TG led and install it into the Convoy C8+. Very narrow beam but 950 meters throw with a really intense hotspot. Even a Osram CSLPM1.TG for less throw but more lumens using Convoy’s 5A driver

A budget zoomy is quite difficult to find that’s bright and well made and not forgetting small enough to mount
