the design of the p60 drop in does not allow for proper heat sinking.

instead i would buy a DIY flashlight from DX and build your own XML or buy the KD C8 (which actually may be p60, i have no idea)

 

 

one thing that worked for me, was one of my OLDER Aurora V6 bodies accepted the pill out of a p60, that GREATLY improved heatsinking as it got rid of the reflector and springs. 

the brass pill screwed into the flashlight body. 

i am hoping when i purchase the XM-L p60 it will do the same

Best hu ?    Solarforce L2P or L2X , followed by regular L2 ..

Most of the other lights have , cheap clicky switches , but the Ultrafire C1 ? , might be above the pack ... 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Why is the L2P or L2X better than the L2?

Lighttake or somebody was advertising empty Trustfire 1200 hosts. That would be perfect for a XM-L. Not P60 and I'm not sure what kind of pill those come with, if any. The Ultrafire 1200 I have has a really big brass pill that screws into the throat and has amazing heat sinking. It is 2x18650.

I knew that was coming. I found his post here:

The hosts are at the bottom of his Black Friday special, but they are still pretty cheap. The problem is they don't include a reflector or a pill from what I can see. I would love to find a pill that would fit my Ultrafire 1200 so I could mount a XM-L to it instead of probably ruining the P7 on the current pill.

Probably they are "newer", and they are HA-III coated.
As i noticed in the inner side of the tube, are a little "gold" or maybe bronze color coating. My L2P (with MMP-1) is somewhere in the world, on a airplane, i hope arrive before Christmas.....

I have a few p60 hosts and so far the most heat tolerant host by a small margin is:

I suspect it is that way just because it has the most surface from all p60 hosts i have.
