Long discussion and thoughts thread here.

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/27889

More info on the light here. The picture shows an XML-2. Specs say XML-2 U2, I will confirm with Ric.

Edit. TomE has done a comprehensive strip down here.

Why am i reminded of a light built from a bicycle pedal?

The Journal of Alternative Facts TM

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of alternative facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists"

To the best of my knowledge there's only one base unit, you can buy it with or without extension tubes. I have a 1 cell and a 3 cell version from WB, either base unit works with 1,2 or 3 cells without visible output variation.

+1 same here. Pretty sure the 1 cell versions I bought from WB were with buck driver circuitry. The 2 cell might make a nice MT-G2 host with a zener mod driver. Not sure of the reflector opening - will check this eve.

They do. I just bought four of them from WB and they are all identical. Only difference among the samples was one had orange o-rings instead of red.

Speaking of the light, I did some measurements last night, and the emitter shelf is up to 8mm thick! I’ll take some pictures of the light and post them here.. now just to figure out how.

Thanks MrsDNF!!! And cnq.

It look  like we don't have to wait for  a minimum amount of interested people right?

Mrsdnf, maybe you could link to 1 or a few reviews, mods, so people can get more excited.

The Yezl's are XM-L2, the DST is XM-L.

This was bought as a single cell - note the big inductor for buck circuitry. Nice flat pill top, single piece uni-body style and easy access to the pill top. Massively thick pill top I might add...

 

In this thread: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/27889, post #77 has stock measurements I made, post #86 has the prelim mod #'s and post #117 had final #'s, after the UCLp upgrade. My #'s may be a little high (optimistic?) but I use the very best cell I have, actually the Powerizer may be the best cell in existence - too bad you can't buy them anymore.

Thanks for the great pic Tom. It looks extremely robust. Is the stock mcpcb thicker than a noc or sinkpad? If so, any issues with reflector seating after the swap?

Oh boy - the mod was done a while back, this pic is from back then. I'm thinking it worked ok - using a lower profile centering piece, and possibly thicker MCPCB, but I believe these bigger MCPCB's are already fairly thick, in the 1.5mm range, close to a Noctigon or SinkPAD. For some stupid reason, I don't have many pics from the mod and the light is sold off to a relative, hunting/fishing activity. I can find out a little more from the stock lights I have.

Stock Yezl Y3 white wall beamshot here in the M12 review in the OP: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/32243. Don't think you can tell much, but, it's a wall beamshot...

Big Smile I saw the “Bang good” header so I went and signed up. Great! I was sent a 5% off Coupon with the code #5b3733. I ordered a item for $26.99. I entered the code and the pop-up said “Not Valid” and I ordered the item because my wife of 49 + years wanted it. So, what is the deal? My order number is #2612912, I paid with Pay Pal. What to do? Oops

The pic’s legend says “XML”. Did the “old” one has XML, rather than XM-L2?

I’ve ordered Version C of the group buy at cnqualitygoods.com.
The original YEZL Y3 product page has XM-L2 U2 in the title line but XML-2 T6 for the LED description. Both are XML2 but different bins.
I ordered anyway and expect it to work out.

Would that driver be hospitable to an MTG2?

Oh - on the CNQ product page? It's always been XM-L2 as far as I know, and pretty sure it's an XM-L2 T6 1A. RIC's website is crazy, whacky, frought with errors all over the place. I just went through some things, and boy, so many blank pics, wrong descriptions, conflicting info -- it's a mess. Thinking of ordering parts but worried I'll get the things I order...

I'm confident we are good with the group buy, just that the product listing has some mistakes and lots of missing details.
