Convoy M1 MT-G2 mod questions...

I am going to convert my M1 to an MT-G2 4000k light. I am considering either using a zener modded 105C with 12 7135’s or a zener modded fet driver. Since the light will be powered by 18650’s, I am thinking the 105C might be the best option.

What do all of you think?

On a side note, does anyone know of an 18650 battery tube that would lego with the M1 so I could run 2 18650’s?

Thanks Matt

EDC rotation:
KR4, SST-20 FA3 4000k (favorite!)
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (second favorite)
FW1A, LH351D 3500k (third favorite)
FW1A, XP-L Hi 3A
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
Emisar D4V2, brass E21A 3500k (night light of choice)

I built a C8 with a zener modded 105c with 12×7135s and a MTG2. It was running with 2s 18350ies or an extension tube for 2s 18650. It was not really a stunner, so I replaced the MTG2 with a XHP50! That’s a great deal brighter to my eyes and I like it much better!

My conclusion: go for a fet driver with MTG2!

I think you wont find extender tube for M1.
You need to use 2×18350.
12×0.35=4.2A, as for me this is enought for mtg2.
