I have been saving my pennies for one of these. I can't wait to finally have a decent brand name light. PM sent. I might have to sign up at CPF now.........................................................not.

I think it will do you good to sign up over there, that way you can still spend say $100 a month of goodies, but instead of getting 8 items a month you will get 1/2 of the flashlight and then the other half after you have made the other payment.  Smile

they are little  .. kind of amazing when you set one next to the last BLF light or a B9 ss n-light .. they seem huge in comparison .

Ok. I'm officially jealous Sad Have to pinch pennies though. I've been buying too many lights recently... I kind of blame this forum. LOL

Guys, I recently upgraded my EZ AA I got from Boaz with an xp-g R4 3D tint emitter.  Wow!  This is now officially my favorite key chain light (Sorry fenix!).  If you have one already, I can't recommend this mod enough....  Beam is perfect, tint is perfect, and output is almost too good to be true.  I'll try and get a post up shorty....

I just made a drop in with a XP-G R43D and that is my favorite tint also. The question is what size star fits in the EZ AA because I can't wait to dot his mod? Thanks

I used the same 16mm xp-g R4 3D emitter from SB that I did on the nitecore ex10.  They file down quick, and the size you need to aim for is 12.8mm.

Good deal I will order another one, the star is pretty thin so it should go easy. Thanks for the inspiration.

Match, how did you get the pill removed from the head?  Did you just heat it up with a propane torch like the Tank007 E07?  I tried using the "extreme force" method and just ended up with threading gouges in my index finger..

Me too I have a 3D I'M dieing to put in mine but all I managed to do was gouge the shit out of it.

Boaz is on vacation this week, I am not sure if he has internet access or not so it might take him a little while to get back to you.

Well, I'm on vacation too...but figured I'd respond quick to this since I haven't posted the teardown pics yet.

Yes, I used a propane torch to heat up the head.  No reverse threading or any of that nonsense... it unscrews normally.  But it does take a bit of heat to loosen up the glue.  It may be unsettling to take a torch to a not-so-budget light, but that's what needs to happen.  Once heated up enough, the head should come apart easily enough without any galling.  

Once apart, the led can be unsoldered and replaced without further teardown.

For bonus points, compress the battery spring on the base of the pcb slightly and solder in place.  This will reduce the amount of twisting from low to high from 1.5 turns to just a half a turn.  This is what I did on mine.

Yikes a torch on a $40 dollar light that isn't broken uhmm OK I might pass on this mod.

Trust me I know, I have a coupe 501As with the XPG R4 3D tint and a R5A3 with a neutral XML. My EZ has a very neutral tint lottery winner tint on it compared to others I have seen. It will get done eventually when i grow some nuts and finish the dozen or so projects i am buried under now.

:)..I like that patient sitting in a corner .. the nurse comes into the psychiatrist and says " doctor there's a patient in the waiting room who thinks he's invisible" ...

 the doctor says to her .." tell him I can't see him "

 The Doctor is in ..

 break out the propane torch

What did i do to get a 5 star rating ???

I think it had something to do with sending gifts to mr. admin.

 It pays to grease the wheel.

How do i get a 6th star ??
