[MOD] no-name $1 keychain light

This is my first flashlight mod ever.
Host: no-name $1 keychain light.
Emitter swap: 5mm 3200K high CRI Yuji.

I think the result is fantastic.
Words can not describe the difference in light quality.

Big thanks to Djozz for the Yuji led and to Parametrek for the inspiration.

Nice work! I’ve carried Photons and fauxtons before but I don’t like buying coin cells.

Whatcha gonna do with the other 999 LEDs? LOL

Seriously though, where’d you get the Yuji?

Would one of these emitters work in a Fenix E01?

I’ve seen a thread about E01 swaps on ‘the other forum.’ Wink

Much better tint! Welcome to the world of modding. What are you going to mod next?

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Perhaps Clemence from http://wew.virence.com could sell these yuji’s. Or there could be an unconditional BLF group buy similar to the Nichia 219B 4500K 9080. I myself would order 50 or so 3200K Yuji’s from him in a pinch. Price is not the problem; the minimum order quantity of 1000 is the limiting factor.

Idea for my next Yuji 5mm mod

Cool

Unfortunately these lights are out of production and somewhat difficult to find second-hand.

Goshdogit: Thanks for sharing the CPF link, great find and inspirational.
Personally I think the Fenix E01 is great in all respects, except for the atrocious tint, beam artifacts, too high color trmperature (purple!) and low CRI of the Nichia GS. I would love a Fenix E01 with Yuji led.

Would it be possible to ask Fenix if they are interested in a group buy?
