Good for modding – MXDL 3W Flashlight Silver Reviews

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