Hello All, first post here…
I’ve been searching Google and this forum, but haven’t quite found what I’m looking for, even after spending several hours last night reading many pages of posts! I’m sure I’ve missed something, but maybe this thread will put some info into one place.
I have an SK-68 purchased from AliExpress that I’m looking to modify, both for the fun of it, as well as making this light more to my liking.
I’m not requesting specifically for “What part from X vendor”; more like a guide of what to look for when trying to decide what parts to get. There are many very old threads with links to parts no longer available, so that why I’m looking for more of a guide. (Though specific links certainly wouldn’t hurt!)
I am primarily looking to upgrade the driver module with something that offers different modes than stock.
I understand that I will likely need to modify the pill since most drivers are about 17mm.
I can figure out based on specs how to select one with the modes I want, and which battery voltages they will run on… But how do you determine what amperage driver you want?
Ideally, I want a driver that offers 3-5 modes, works with AA
and 14500, and has High > True Medium > Moonlight (or more) modes, and preferably has mode memory.
think that for now I’ll be satisfied with the stock emitter. Suggestion welcome!
A replacement forward clicky switch would be cool if anyone has done this to the Sk68.
Any real benefit on these lights to a different emitter star?
Again specific links are greatly welcome, but mainly looking for guidelines so that there’s durable information out there as upgrade products come and go…
And yes, I’m new to flashlight modding, but more than capable of doing most of the work required.
