Good for modding – MXDL 3W Flashlight Silver Reviews

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.
Other:
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.
