  • Good for modding

    Pros:

    Very nice little light. Good quality compared to price. Nice machined. O-ring so its probably splashproof, but not waterresistant.

    You can get in different colors.

    Very good for modding.

    Cons:

    Non really except quality of original led. Its not very bright and rather bluish.No o-ring at the lens.

    OtherThoughts:

    As said very useful for modding. The pill in this light has same threads and dimension as the pill in a P60 dropin.

    Buy a R2 for throw or a R5 for flood and remove the reflector and springs from the pill.

    Unscrew the original pill and replace it with the pill from the P60 dropin. Use a RCR123A and get the smallest and brightest little EDC light.

    Maybe you have to sand down the opening of the reflector a bit to make space for the led depending of size. You may also have to put in a spacer between ledboard and reflector to remove any black hole in the hotspot. Try different thickness intil its gone.

    Bottomline:

    If you do the mod with a MC-E pill you´ll have the smallest pocket rocket in the world, but it will probably get very hot.

    Also very easy to mod with a different led.
