Astrolux EA01S internals picture request

Hi, Could someone with an Astrolux EA01S (4x emitter) post some pictures of the driver and how it's mounted to the flashlight body - please - if you have them? I'd like to know how they're heatsinking it. Can't find anything online. Thanks.

 

--EDIT--

 

Found a video online of an Astrolux EA01 (non-S) teardown. Picture of the driver below. Don't know if there is a big difference with the 'S' version. Looks as though Astrolux learned a lesson from the MF01 Mini and put a decent ledge in for the driver, but it's missing thermal compound .... Easily fixed.

 

Anyone know why they've covered the driver in putty?

Not exactly an EA01S but Tom E’s EA01 teardown may help:
