So, any word on the KL03? Looks like a great mod host…

The KL02 is the light to get in this series. The KL03 is meh, bad PWM on low mode, typical slow strobe, emitter is bluish enough to make you not want it and a squishy switch when changing modes. For the price, OK for a host, if you do not want a lot of heatsinking. I honestly got the thing and threw the battery in, played with it for a minute and put it away… nothing outstanding like the KL02 is for simplicity.

If I get time, I will post pics of the insides, but I have a lot going on right now, so nothing soon. Thanks for reminding me on this thread Gunga!

It looks like a 17mm driver, the pill is skinny and the switch is pressed in. The switch has a junky feel and would be the weak part for modding this light. I am sure some of the gurus here could do something with this… I have not enough skill at this point, so it will be in my parts box for a while.

The reflector is aluminum and the nicest individual part of this light…

Wow. Thanks. Maybe I won’t pick up one of these for modding after all…
