HD2010 Pill replacement

Just received my Tmart HD2010 yesterday and already I managed to destroy my stock aluminum pill trying to machine out the LED recess and was wondering if anyone knows any place to get a replacement? I saw the threads on here for copper pills but all are sold out. I’ve seen reference to a vendor “WB” but couldn’t figure out what the vendor name was.

If anyone bought a copper replacement and wants to get a few bucks for their stock one that would work as well.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I was able to salvage the one I destroyed. Still interested if there is anywhere to purchase them though since now its a bit beat up.

WB is probably Wallbuys. I don't see the pill there but just took a very quick look.

Try member VestureofBlood.
Hes made copper pills for some of the more popular modding lights—but I can’t say for sure if he did them for HD2010.

Looks like he sold out a while back…but worth inquiring…

Thanks for the info, I checked with one of the guys that was selling some but he did not have plans to make any in the near term. The light is currently working so I’m not really in a big rush. I will probably just keep an eye open for the next time someone does a run of them.

I have a pill you can have but shipping would probably kill the plan when Tmart has HD2010s at the moment for around $20.00 US. Let us know if you want it.

Yeah I considered the fact that I could buy a replacement flashlight for not much money.. If its the stock aluminum one I will pass but I do appreciate the offer.

I am disappointed that I paid $30 though, I guess I should have looked harder on Tmart for a different source…

He is the member I messaged originally. Unfortunately he is not making any at this time.

He is Attending CMU, He is in The Robotics Lab, and may supply them again, if he can work it into his Engineering responsibilities.

I may make some too if I can get into a machining class here in town. I have no idea when I'll be able to make pills instead of scrap metal though.

The low mode should be lower.

This was noted on another thread. It is for a HD2010.

At .94 cents apiece, ‘two is one, one is none’.

Havenot placed an order yet, still looking for the a cc, 3.5-4.0A driver.

No. That’s a P60 pill. It will not suit a HD2010.

It was noted in another forum post. But I believe you need to it into the stock pill.
