I meant for mods, was actually wondering what the best upgrade would be for the L1+ because it deserves the best led~

Not even sure what is in the L1+ but from i can find on lumileds a PW01/QXOk/RYOJ is like the newest bined 1 watt lux but not really sure about all this stuff yet

I guess the L1P is R binned and thats just about it for 1 watt, the L1+ is just under that, so i guess only upgradeable to R bin, /shrugs~

I wouldnt mind a nice colored emitter in it since i dont plan on letting her leave the desk or back yard anyway..ever

Actually, quite a few of the Dorcy Metal Gear lights at Walmart have an R*** bin 1 watt led.
Just buy a few, keep the best and brightest looking one, return the rest and there ya go.  :-[
I have found RYOH, RWOJ and RYAJ 1 watt leds that were screamers in thier own right.

All my 1 Watt lights are modded with RXOH. They are available for only $7 each.

My new style Dorcy 3D Super 1W has an RYAK and, sadly to say, it makes whatever is in my L1P v2.5 look pretty darn green.

Of course, the L1P looks just fine unless it's being compared to something better.

Don't know, but my next project is the same thing in an Inova X1. I just like the feel of the X1 more than the Fenix. The emitter sits further forward and you lose the super spot characteristic of the stock X1 and end up with a very, very wide flood. He's done several Lux I and Lux III mods that require NiMH but we've talked about going the DD LiON route and I think that's what I'm going to go for.

Not sure on which bin to use... TY0K would be my first instinct...

Hrmm... LED_ASAP posted some pics on the other forum maybe a bit over a year ago concerning a Lux I or III in an X1 and he said what he did was pushed the emitter further forward and it greatly reduced the optic effect and it had a very wide spill beam though probably not much throw. Or maybe he did replace the optic with just a lens but I'm almost certain he didn't add a reflector.

my 'sams club' element http://element.rouse.com light has an RX1H it's overdriven to like 700mA and outputs about 1300 lux! not bad for $13.
