Actually wierd, couse i couldnt get mine batteries to rattle even without the tail spring. Is why i was trying other solutions. If i put batteries in they stil stick out of the body…

Mine don’t give a rattling sound either but still it works. It’s normal that they stick out a little, about 0.5-1 cm

It’s as high as it gets. 3 A of current in series. Specs say that its 3 × 1000 lumen, but I think the reality is somewhere near 2000. If I remember right, the burning time before low voltage flashing was something like 45 minutes with those batteries. (I have the same)

Is it not around 1700 lm without any modifications already? Comparing to the other divilight i have rated at 1000 lm this TR-DF003 does not make it BRIGHTER but it does put out a lot more of a light. Much wider then other one using 1 led onlly. So the amount of light put out there is much bigger, the brightnes of the center is simply the same.

Well, I base my estimation on my other light which other people have made similarly. In that case seven XM-L T6 driven 3 A give 5500 lumen when tested. They should give 7000 if those rates were true.. In the “turds” case there is even more spill so I think the overall result after the mod is much nearer to 2000 than 3000. Somebody should test it?

How ever the torch is quite nice specially in clear water for it’s price, but after that mod you can’t use it for very long dive. That was one of the reasons I went for a canister light.

That one from intl doesn’t have strobo. The one from ebay don’t fit, it has to be a boost regulator, not a constant current regulator. Secondly that one is for only one battery and one led.

Congratulations Guys This very posts series is the reason to enteyour company, order a TURD and mod the hell out of it. I am 22years in NAVY nev er opened a flashlight to even change batteries… After five times of reading your posts I had the epiphany of tearing one apart. I’ ll contact fasttech for placing an order, Explain that my reading this forum made me an expert in recognizing fake trustfire 26650 batteries and receive a black old German grenade lookalike. In the process I am sure my C.O. will get angry about flaslighting every one aboard, wife will offer to present a new functional flashlight not to spend all of m y free time tweaking thebuoyanchor lookalike and kids will discover new bubble machine…deepdawng tu est le meilleur je te merci beaucoup.

I am also looking for a diving light, but for way less than that!
