Last Friday I received some goodies from Led4Power and finally ended a mod I started in November!
I moded the Jaxman E3 into a triple, and changed the driver and LED of the Convoy T2.
No pics from the mod on the Convoy T2 , only some beamshots!
I must mention that if someone wants to mod this light, the MCPCB must be around 14mm. There is a ring that protrudes all around the shelf, and that hinders 16mm MCPCBs from fitting correctly.
Also, as the original flashlight uses a thin PCB plate (aluminum), a thicker one as those from Led4Power, will probably raise the reflector and the lens and will leave a small gap when screwing in the bezel of the flashlight. I put an o-ring in that gap
This said, I reflowed a Luveon V 4000K in a old “shaved-to-14mm” Led4Power MCPCB. I used a 4-6A LD-A4 driver also from Led4Power, with a spring cut to half to make the battery fit.
I also put another type of clip borrowed from the Amutorch S3 (stainless steel), and I “flamed” the clip with a small lighter/torch (sorry, can’t remember the proper expression for this process ).
I started this mod in November. Back then I started with a 16mm copper rod to make the pill; I cut it by hand and filed to make it for the flashlight. It was bought in a local store.
I used a triple MCPCB board with Cool White XP-G2 S4-1A (from Jaxman) and a Carclo 10507 from Led4Power. Both the MCPCB and the Carclo had to be shaved / filed / sanded to fit the head and the bezel correctly. In this process, I slightly damaged the optic, so sanded it a bit, not uniformly. It works, though
I drilled a hole in the shelf of the flashlight to make the wires (20AWG) fit. The driver is a 7-9A LD-A4 from Led4Power.
Around the pill I used a spacer bought some time ago in KD store from AliExpress. It helps a lot holding the pill in the correct place and it was perfect for this.
The pocket clip is a spare one from Nitefox ES10K, and I also “flamed” it with a small torch/lighter. Did the same with the bezel.
The threads form the T2 and the E3 are equal, so the parts are interchangeable. I wish the E3 had a round battery tube so that the clip was correctly aligned. I am still thinking about the possibility to add something between the tube and the tail cap of the E3, to make it align correctly!
The night beamshots are on Max output, with and EFEST IMR 14500 650mAh.
