Spontaneous Giveaway - Wuben TO50R aux boards

It’s been way too long since I’ve done a giveaway. I happen to have 3 aux boards I made for the great Wuben TO50R sitting around that needed a home!

Rules:

  • Post a picture of your TO50R with your soldering iron next to it, proving that you have a use for these. Picture must be yours.
  • Must be a BLF member before today (2020-08-14)
  • I will draw 3 random winners after 1 week
  • This mod is not for the faint of heart. It involves delicately removing the driver from your precious (and expensive) TO50R.

Fine print: I will cover US shipping. International folks may definitely enter but I reserve the right to ask you to pay actual shipping costs if you win (typically $14).

No walk, no want, no way, no Wuben.
But great idea for a GAW Thumbs Up

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I would love to have one of these, but I have no skills or guts to open that light and install the aux leds Tired

Still, thank you for the kind GAW and I wish good luck to the contestants Wink

I’d be willing to do the mod, but no TO50R Silly

Good luck to any who enter. Thinking about it longer, though, it might be tough to find three entrants!

I’m beginning to think that if you drew a Venn Diagram of (1) people with a TO50R and (2) people that are interested in opening up their flashlight… there’d be a very small overlap Sad

Maybe instead of picking 3 people, I could just say “if anyone wants one, just let me know”.

TO50R and a basic soldering iron…

Too bad I don’t have the soldering skills to do such a mod (but hopefully can find someone locally who can do it..).
Also, shipping likely steep to my country.

Sorry for my delay. I will attempt to get the bezel off and find out. Thank you.

No need to open it as the 46R is a three emitter light => unfortunately won’t fit.
