Thanks Relic38 for the info on modding the small sun ZY-T08 (whitewall pics)

Thanks Relic38 for the info on modding the small sun ZY-T08. I used your easy instructions for modding the carrier so I could run a SST-90 driver in mine. I’m using it to drive a de-domed XM-L2 U2 on a 20mm Copper octogon. I’m guessing it’s right at 7 amps to the emitter. I had to grind down the outside of the driver to make it fit but it works perfect. I’m guessing 1500 lumens or so and a throw that just says wow. I’ll post some beamshots tonight.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

My thanks also. I’m coppying relics ZY-T08 parallel to series cell conversion to make my own pocket flooder with MT-G2. It’s all in parts waiting for a day off to make it so.

sixfifty,

I got this from CREE XML2 datasheet. Is this really what’s happening when you have 7A to the emitter?

From this thread.

18sixfifty, do you have a link to the driver you are using?

This is the driver, I got mine from Wallbuys as a replacement for a driver in the mystery SRK that didn’t work right. Of course this driver wouldn’t fit or work either. LOL I did make it work but I replaced it with a DRY driver that I like better.

Thanks RaceR86. So it’s really driven out of specs and hopefully it will not burn out. Beer

You’re welcome guys, glad to help. I wonder what throw you are getting with that driven at 7A. probably close to 200kcd.
Ouchy, that flooder will be nice, it’s my favorite single MT-G2 light so far. The LustFire is my overall fav for MT-G2 with three of em J)

Welcome the night.

It’s a lot of throw that’s for sure. I seriously need a light meter and a good multimeter. If anyone cares to donate one please feel free. I swear I won’t use it for personal gain. Wink
