YEZL Y3 26650x2 Flashlight Questions

Anybody have this light and mod’ it??
I am looking for someone to increase the amps…It’s running xm-l2 T6 @ 2,5 amps. The light is very bright and throws the beam a long way. It has a very deep smo reflector. Fasttech sells them for $35.
I have one I will leave stock but am very interested in buying two more to have modified…
Thoughts?

light addict....yeah I've got the bug.

One of my favorite modding lights. R100 Resistor mod only after a Copper MCPCB XM-L2 U4 dedomed. Best running two cells ala one extension. No Copper with R100, stock aluminum MCPCB will float the emitter off the star. Don’t ask how I know. Silly

Even more

Time to get your feet wet. This is the place to find cool information to go from a tech not to a tech bee. If you show serious intent I’ll even supply five R100 Resistors free!

Easiest mod is to direct swap a XHP50 on sinkpad. No need to change anything else, instant ~2000 lumens bump! The stock driver can drive 6V LEDs no problem and it will draw ~2.4A with 2×26650.

Mine is modded with an MT-G2 on 26mm maxtoch mcpcb, basically just a LED swap.

There you go mass lumens or mass throw. Buy them all! BTW my dedomed U4 Y3 with lathe or file work needed to tweek focus and out throws my Maxtoch BLF-TE.
