Some ReyLight on sale

Yes, it is the same case. The mcpcb is glued to prevent any movement that might break the wire when assembling.

Is that just the copper or is the Ti LAN MCPCB glued as well?

Both glued, including brass pineapple and copper mini.

Dang. I’ve been wanting to pick up a brass Pineapple to drop in a 2700K LH351D but I’m glad I saw this first.

If you’re going to swap emitters, wouldn’t a little hot air loosen the glue same as it will the solder?

The copper Dawn is not on sale but I notice for the first time it is available with sw45k 9080 219B’s.

I haven’t tried it on a Reylight, but I have removed many glued MCPCBs with just some careful prying. I don’t like them glued, but it’s usually just a small slow down not a roadblock.

I’m hoping to put something with higher R9 in mine, so I guess we’ll see how hard it is to take out.

The glued mcpcb in the brass pineapple was very easy to break. Easy mod.

Thanks for letting me know, it seems it might be less of a issue than i thought.

I was going to ask how you changed the LED, no need now :slight_smile: There’s a chance i’ll sell it on now to fund a Ti LAN.

That was a real nice pineapple. And later batches of the sst-20 3000k did not look as good as the one got in there. Maybe just go for both :slight_smile:

I tried removing the mcpcb in my brass Pineapple by using a cigarette lighter and prying. No luck. I actually deformed the shelf.

Thanks for mentioning and warning others. Maybe I was lucky…

Rey, is there an easy way to remove the glue for modding purposes?

It is, but it’s one or the other. I also have a standard Pineapple and that would have to go too.

I’m new to reylights, and am getting in the brass pineapple. Is there a bezel to remove? I’m assuming that’s how you are getting into the mcpcb to remove it? I just did an emitter swap in my e03 xeno, which seems may be a similar size to the pineapple and LAN? 98mm x 21mm

There’s a pill that you can back out of the head. The MCPCB is a bit tricky because of how it’s soldered. Some pics here: What did you mod today? - #9110 by gchart

Sidenote, the mcpcb of my brass Pineapple has a different shape than my Ti Lan, which is smaller and even more tricky

Thank is Gchart and Yokiamy.

Those pisture look exactly like the e03 pill and mcpcb I just did a swap on. I went in through the bezel And head, removing the reflector. I unsoldered that small mcpcb and reflowed with my hot plate. My mcpcb looked darker then yours when I was done as I messed up the orientation of the emitter, a couple of times. Still learning :person_facepalming:

Thanks for the info !

Yokiamy- do you recall if the mcpcb on your brass was smaller than 14mm?

Im not exactly sure which one, (i think my Ti Lan)
but one of them was square and sat on a copper pill where the square mcpcb exactly fits in the square slot.

Edit, this is my Pineapple

Awesome, thank you for the info!
