3*AAA XM-L Mix-up

Now there's a true mix up.

An XM-L, with Trustfire printed on it, using 3*AAA, styled like a Romisen with a Sipik design-like zoom function....................phew........

It ought to be labeled Frankenstein !!!

That looks very interesting, I would love to try one. I made a direct drive 3aaa light for my girlfriend, it works fine doesn't have great run time, but the battery holder limits output to about 2 amps so it doesn't overheat. The problem is getting the zoom to work with an XML, it has always been a problem for me to get it to focus properly.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

Wasn't there a recent post about this light? (EDIT: It was a post by you Ledsmoke). Seem to think someone got it. It does look nice, but it's too much money for me to buy without knowing anything about it.

You can find them for less than 22 if you search eBay. I've been tempted a few times by this one

too bad you'd have to wait for %$!@#!$^#%&@ ever

+$7 for t6 emitter, $5 for driver, so a couple bucks extra for romisen? 

i think i saw it on manafont too, don't remember if it was xml or xre

The romisen RC-C8 i used to have, had a 20mm driver (beware if you plan to mod a RC-C8). Extremely well built for the price at that time however. Still quite above nowadays.

XM-Ls don't do zoom. At all.

I wonder what would happen if you heated/cooked this light would the orange bezel turn black and the black body turn orange??? Undecided Surprised Wink
