Some KL4 mods and variations........
Below is a KL4 with Royal Blue 5W emitter next to a KL4 which has had
the 5W emitter swapped out with a 1W Low Dome emitter. An extended E1 body
houses a Copia 168b 3.7 V Li-Ion battery.
Below is a KL4 bezel which has been gutted and a BB500 and 1W HD R2H emitter have
replaced the SF circuit and 5W LED. For size scale, it is shown next to a KL1 on E1.
The length is about the same but the KL4-1W has a Z57 clickie whereas the KL1 has a
shorter non lock out tail cap. In terms of beam, these two lights shown were compared
along with an Arc LSH-P with relative lux readings of:
KL1 - 330 lux
Arc LSH-P - 420 lux
KL4-1W - 820 lux
Below, a KL4 was gutted and a buck converter (DownBoy 400 from Dat2zip) was paired up
with a 1W HD red Luxeon LED. The existing PCB of the KL4 was bored out on a lathe to
accept the smaller converter board. The DB400 used has components on both sides and
most of them, including the IC controller are on the other side.
