I don’t think that’s appropriate.

Can somebody post the link of KD 9A driver?

Look in this thread. 

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/11781

There is a discussion about whether it really is a good idea. I potted mine with heatsink compound and it still kicks down after 2-3 minutes on high. I personally am fine with it as this light does not need to be used on high constantly.

If anyone is planning this mod make sure to pot the driver with thermal paste. With doing that I get around 3 minutes on high before it steps down.

I bought mine from Rey @ Aliexpress and for $1.50 you get a spare lens, o’rings and switch. Mine was $89.90 shipped DHL and I got it in 2 days!!!! He also did an excellent job packing it. Rey is very quick on shipping your orders also…

Here’s a quick picture of the whole light, the top was not showing in the other pictures. It is 14” tall.

Pron! Flashlight pron that is. What a great light. Every owner opinion I remember seeing is about how nice it is build and how well it performs in both flood and throw. Some wanted more throw but that does not stop them saying it is a very good value light. Congratulations to you rikr. I am a little bit green right now Wink because I've always been partial to that model myself. And now it is outstanding value for money since they have come below 100 $.

I am still on the fence about it though since I would probably mod it and that seems like a lot of money for a mod host. But that is just me...

Here’s a video of it on youtube. The head part is actually a wee bit more massive than the X100.

Tadpole, IMO it was plenty appropriate!

Flashlight porn..Thats picture is!!!

Rey, is the man. Cant say enough about the service and the little extra’s that make a
good vendor a great vendor. Rey is abviously a flashahiolic himslef and packed 2 very large
heavy lights with plenty of care. i know hes tested each one, O-rings, lubricated threads, ultra clean and polished. This is my first purchase and in just an average joe, i wasnt expecting an X6 and DF003 dive light to appear 3 days after placing the order. Again, Rey making sure
the customers happy. Normally i would start with a comment in regards to the pricing and the
were simply too good to pass. I told Rey it was a no brainer, you just have to to but i dont think he understood.At the end of the day its the service that everyone will appreciate. The
fanstastic service and attention to detail is a no brainer..

Slewfish – I haven not. Im still waiting on the delivery. After i ordered i found another driver
with adjustable output via a Pot. I think the 2nd driver will work well with an STT-90 rated at as it is rated at 10amps-14amps max. I’ll update this or start a new thread with the modification. Get one, if you dont like it..I’ll take it off your hands..

Just received mine. Has a few nicks here and there but not too much of a problem. The two words I first said when I opened it was ‘holy crap’. These pictures really don’t do it any justice until you hold it in your hand. This thing is massive. It is a club. It’s daytime right now so I can’t judge it’s abilities yet but I can say for sure that this thing is substantial. If you’re used to 2*18650 lights or smaller this will blow your mindhole.
Also note, this is a soft battery crusher – meaning if you have panasonic NCR18650As it will crush the negative end of the battery. So I’m using my TF flames which don’t get crushed. A bit sad, but I’m not too bummed since it’s the cheapest SST-90 light out there right now.
Shoutout to Rey: I received it quick, thank you.
And also I can’t wait to mod this thing. I’ll order the parts next month after my exams are over.

I can say that it has a throw of 49k at 1 meter (slightly higher than stock STL-V2), but when calculated from 10 meters, only has a throw of 45k. VERY UNIMPRESSED. But it has more than 1000 lumens for sure, probably around 1400 going by ceiling bounce tests.
When I mod it to 9 amps, I predict the throw will be around 55k or so, and then I will probably dedome it.. or should I do it now..

EDIT: Actually I probably won’t dedome it. I want it to have maximum brightness, even if it means losing out on throw
EDIT2: I have to commend the heatsinking on this light. Temperatures after 15 minutes on high (6.5A) in celcius, ambient temperature of 18.1 degrees:
Head: 37.3
Main fins: 43.9
Secondary fins: 37.4
Start of battery tube (where I hold it): 36.2
Joint between first and second segment of battery tube: 34.3
Top of battery tube: 33.2

If you want a more ehm, how hall I say this, reversible mod than dedoming that expensive led, buy a XML already on a copper star from either DX or LED-Tech and then just stick it in there with original driver. XML on CU should handle it well.

And if you then want to de-dome that one it's only a fift of the price. You might even sell the original led and recover some of your money.

It is just a thought, my 0,02$ you might say Smile

Ledsmoke that’s actually not a bad idea. I’ll give it a go, that means I’d be running the XML at 6.5 amps.. I might have to pot the whole thing though to get proper heat management and doing that kind of makes it permanent..

On another note, where you unscrew the head at the bottom of the battery tube (like the opposite to the tailcap), I sanded it until it the colour came off and… I got an extra 68 lumens and 100 lux out of it… Kind of crazy to think it has that much resistance on the connectors. I will probably try to sand the tailcap spring when I get the time.

The TF X7 is actually a better idea if you are going for the copper MCPCB XM-Ls. It does 4.5A. People have done it also. Same reflector size.
