1 + 1 = 1 on a bun
Last order bought SKU 3731503 to replace the one in my hunting flashlight... Well the original module I threw in a drawer and gave 2 shits. Cleaning up I found a gutted mini flashlight tube in the same drawer. So.... I totally did the project in a very half-ass quality attempt.... And it came out wonderfully.




It's a tube for a flashlight that used a 3xaaa battery adapter, now it uses 18350s, and was maybe 50lm originally lmao. Now it's a mini thrower at 500lm~ 400 lm* according to manufacture (after alot of emails). LatticeBright V2 led.


.

I had to cut out a plastic lens also since that was missing from the body.

I'm happy to get spare shit out and working with something else. And happy to have a mini flashlight that can kick-ass. And another reason to use my 18350s.

I feel accomplished lol





The camo on the right is the exact same driver and led setup, that the black on the left was.... 9 POS LEDs, vs 1 led 4x the power of all 9 together lmao










I'm very happy, if you can't tell. Recycling and getting positive results! If I feel like it tomorrow I may take it apart to show all the ghetto "machining" that ended up working.

Had a tornado drop here yesterday. Powers out till Saturday.... The led module, between the original tube 18650 style and the ghettod up 18350, it seems more stable in 18350. The battery life/dim time is puzzling between a 3000mah 18650 and 750mah 18350. 18650 a fresh battery would go dead(3.5v) after 3 constant hours, now im seeing the 18350 hitting 6h and no notice in light dimming. Haven't checked the voltage yet but I'm sure it's good.




Far succeeding my expectations from this ghetto engineered project.








Be safe. Good night.
