I just modded a Amutorch AL1 headlamp last night - 20 mm FET+1 driver, sliced 351D 4000K, Anduril2, 22 AWG wires.

Was a pretty easy mod. Bezel unthreaded easy, poked out the driver easily, decent access to the MCPCB. Kept the stock MCPCB - was about 20 mm diag but only 1.0 mm thick.

It's nothing fancy though - SMO reflector, no switch LED's. It says the tube is titanium but feels like SS because of it's weight. Little too heavy for a headlamp to me.

I wanted decent tint, decent throw, to use more like an EDC rather than headlamp.

Sounds like a great mod, and light! Very cool! Did you flash Anduril to the MTN-20DDM? Or did you have to replace the attiny on it altogether? I'm still unsure of the best way to remove/replace/alter tiny components on the driver. I have a KSGER T12, an electric skillet and very little skill. I've destroyed two MTN-17DDM drivers this week trying to install 20AWG wire and then find the excess solder causing high-only behavior. Facepalm Thanks for the headlamp ideas!

Ohh no, I don't use MTN drivers. I reflow my own from OSHPark driver PCB's, usually DEL's but many others as well. I got a hot air system - works great to remove components, either all or singles, even small in tight spots. Forgot what it cost but I got it probably from eBay, pretty cheap, nothing fancy. You can get those all-in-ones with soldering iron and hot air, etc., but I have a good Haiko iron - wouldn't give it up for anything.

This would be one interesting little puppy to stick a 15W laser module inside… LOL

Just goggle foxpro predator light firefly.

Cylons, watch out!

I found it accidentally. It has a mode ring on the tail. It is a bit like the solution from the Maglite XL200.

Link in the pics.

That’s to be expected of the FoxHawk FH-666.
