I've been pouring over endless posts, opinions, beamshots, etc., for the last few days.
I'm in the market for a fresh light, & will be buying something tonight after I've had a few drinks :)
As well as a few hot P60's & C8's, I also have the Solarforce MPP-1 & MPP-2.
I'm really looking for something that can blow the MPP's out of the weeds.
From what I've seen here, I think I'm looking at something like a TR-3T6 or TR-J12, probably with a mod/driver replacement. I'm not sure if a large reflector single LED will do the trick, but I could be wrong (I don't want a laser-like thin beam).
- 18650 is preferable (don't have any 26650 gear)
- Modding is always an option.
- I don't really want to spend more that a pineapple ($50), but a little more won't hurt.
- Runtime on 'high' is not a particularly big issue, but I wouldn't want it throttling down after just a min. or so.
Am I on the right track here looking at the TR-3T6 or TR-J12?
Stock 3T6… Lots of light for the money and good runtime, but not super bright.
Resistor modded 3T6… Real nice! Cant be beaten for about 30$
3T6 with new high output driver (3x3A amp) … Holy shit,this turned into a bright light!
Yeah, I was looking for some more info on the new L2, but there was not much out there. @ over $40 bucks just for the host, it’s too much of an unknown…. I didn’t want to end up with a slightly better MPP-1….
I’m sure the TR-3T6 will make me happy, & in the mean-time, some of us will have posted more info on the L2.
