I've been emailing with Wayne about the Shocker modding. Be interested to here what you think, and if you can do any amps or lumens/lux readings. Has he said what you can expect? Haven't looked at his thread in a while...

Testing it tonight, but first impressions is that it’s a heffer and a very narrow beam.

Will have it fully tested in a week or so. Thinking the tk75 might be a better option now but will see

Whoops, sorry folks, the machinist texted me to come tomorrow because they’re not yet finished, so I’ll have a visit then. Thanks for your patience, I’m very excited about them too!

No need to apologize in the least, this was very quick for a group purchase of custom made parts. Thanks.

70 copper pills is probably enough to dump into a kiddie pool and bathe in the glorious amount of coppery goodness. Just Sayin’. Wink

LOL @ unknown, while you’re probably right, I’d advise against it. I sure do love the look of that gleaming just turned copper though. Wow!

I can definitely feel the weight of those pills.

They total up to about 4 kilos, was quite heavy to bring them back. I’ll get to packaging and wrapping them tomorrow. Smile

Thanks for that, I've just returned from the shop and unfortunately the machinist said that he wouldn't be able to increase the number of threads because it was too close to the top. Sorry about that guys, but I think we'll have to go with 5 threads for now. Some changes I made today: -Ensured that when the HD2010 bezel is tightened down, the stock 16mm PCB has a snug fit and the 20mm copper Noctigon has a solid fit. -Allocated 25 HD2010 pills for the extended driver space and 15 HD2010 pills for the regular profile (stock 8x AMC7135 and East-92) drivers. -The PCB contact area will have a nice smooth finish for both pills. We're initiated production, will update you guys on further progress. Thanks!

PP sent.  Sorry for the delay.  I upped my order to 4 pills for the HD2010.  

2 with extended driver space

2 with regular profile

The low mode should be lower.

No problem, got it. Smile

Been quite a busy week, but since I don’t have school Thursday and Friday, I’ll be on my way packaging and shipping these pills.

Thanks for your patience guys!

zelee, that begs an old question…if a person were to offer to give you a Corvette, top of the line with the hottest engine, would you/could you accept it? The car itself would be free, but could you insure it? Put tires on it? Pay maintenance costs? The average person might not.

There are things in life that are free, but bring with them great cost. No offense girls, but y’all are one of those! Smile And there are things in life that are very expensive, but are not worth having. (cough cough Surefire cough cough) Sometimes, counting the beans is time wasted that could be more wisely spent enjoying the better things in life.

Most of us who have entered the wonderful world of modding are all too familiar with the escalating cost of what started out as a budget light. My new little chopped MiniMag, with it’s Triple Noctigon board populated with XP-G2 emitters and pushing something like 1000 lumens is a very good example of that. A common 2 AA MiniMag, now barely over 3 1/2” long, with a final cost around $50. Silly, isn’t it?

Not when you fire it up! Smile

Ok, so it does cause a silly grin. That’s what modes are for. Silly

I get the distinct impression that, once we get these pills of Ryans in hand, there’s going to be a lot of silly grinning going on!!!

Got it, thanks!

Everyone, please make sure if you want the 3x AMC edition of the HD2010 pill, your name is in the 1st post. Just checking in case I missed anyone!

You have a 2x and a 3x version of the HD2010 pill, Is that the standard version has clearance for the chip on the driver as though for 2 chips…in other words a stacked chip giving 2 chips on the board will touch the copper? And a 3x version will allow room for 2 chips or touch 3?

You have those of us wanting additional room in a “2x” list, with everyone else getting the 3x? By the description 3x looks like more room. See? I’m confused.

Sorry for the confusion. The 2x AMC version has room for one additional AMC chip to be stacked on top of the default AMC7135 chip (2 in total). The 3x AMC version has room for two more AMC chips to be stacked (3 in total).

If you’re planning to use the East-92 DD driver, you’d be fine with the 2x edition.

If you have 2x AMC chips in total, you can use the 2x AMC edition pill, but I’m not sure whether it would touch the top of the pill. It would be very close, however.

Here’s a comparison shot:

So the 3x is deeper, right?

I use a 17mm Qlite based on the Nanjg 105c layout, with 4 7135 chips on each side in stock form. I have been stacking a chip on each of the existing chips, 4 on each side of the board, but would like to double stack on the inside and keep the spring side clean with a single layer of chips. In that case, the chips would be 3 tall on the board.

So could I get the deeper pill please? I may end up doubling the inside, with another stack on the outside, for 20 chips total. I think the Powerizer 26650 will handle that. Want to see, at any rate! Smile

Thanks Ryan!

Yup, you’ve PM’d me about that, so you’re already one the list of 3x AMC stackers. I think there may be room for 4x AMC’s in total, not sure. Smile

Now if I can only make it all work like planned…

Was looking at my HD2010 this evening, with it’s XP-G2 on a 20mm SinkPAD and 16 total chips. Was working when I first picked it up, wasn’t working moments later. Sad The emitter will fire up with an external battery applied to the pad, but nothing through the driver. I have no idea what I could have done, but not planning on messing with it as it’s all about to be a moot point anyway! lol
