My new Triple XPG2 Sunwayman V11R Mirage

hehehe.

Running my triple XPG SWM V11R Mirage off 1 eneloop AA

Mouse over: Before.. Mouse out: After



Just wanted to goof around, and saw that the carclo triple optics fitted right into the bezel!

But the 3 little legs didnt fit inside the head.(So I had to do some surgery)

The 20mm triple noctigon also didnt fit inside the head.. so I shaved off quite a bit, and now it sits nice and snug in the head.

Just popped out the original MCPCB and connected the wires to the triple, and voila.. light... Wink

its a real nerd mod. Nothing spectacular, but it looks interesting.. the first Sunwayman V11R triple Wink


 

ps.

1. if you have the right tools, you should drill the head and make a nice shelf for the triple MCPBC.
    or add some copper that will go into the head and touch the led base.
2. Mine is touching the sides, but probably not enough to let it run off a 14500.

3. The domes of the optics are touching the inside of the head, so without borin the head, you would have to cut the domes a little to fit it inside the head better.

4. Because of this, the bezeld doesnt screw down fully.. If you have the tools, this would be no problem at all!

Maybe the first triple XPG running of a single AA battery?  Wink who cares!

Nice! What’s the runtime like?? Can it be measured in minutes?

I think its about the same as with the standard XML2.
The driver just boosts, and there isnt much of a "boost" in output anyway.. (except for maybe on a 14500).

So I guess its about 50minutes^60minutes

you could always give the driver a boost as well.. but then the MCPCB definitely needs to make more "contact" with the body... now the board is just touching the walls of the head.. but with a 14500 and a driver mod, you definitely need to mod the head.

The way I did it, you could always reverse and put the original XML back in, and nobody can see it was modded !

If you reinforce the thermal path somehow, and bore out the battery extension tube, you could put a Efest or other high drain 16500 in there and really put out some light!

What, you can’t carve out that battery tube with a pocket knife?
