    Anyone mod 3x xml ebay light with task led?

    I was going to do a 2x xml bar light but by the time I buy the leds amd make or buy a housing I am far ahead to buy the cheapy china light and a task led driver to drive it. I know the batteries are poop but I will be a nice project when done.

    Anyone cracked open the 3 xml yet? The driver and reflector from the pics I have seen are stuck together.

    One thing to look at when considering those housings for mod purposes is how much surface area there is. Plan on a minimum of 1 sq. in. of surface area per Watt at the LEDs. That is the minimum I have found will keep the light cool with moderate airflow (8-10 mph).

    I am curious to see what they use for heat sinks. If I can use the space in there and beef up the hearsink.

    The only thing you can do is improve the heat path to the housing. You still need exterior surface area to cool the light.
