Thank you, and you're welcome Ill try my best, but its going to be tough because there's no manufacture marking on the main IC:|

I have got a fix, not for the original driver, the components aren't beefy enough, but i have a 5 mode (((Low (10%), mid (50%), high (100%), strobe (100%), SOS (100%))) Driver circuit i can get my hands on and distribute It can handle 2.8-3A @ 2.7 - 4.2V. you will still kneed to hook it up to a laser driver though, but it gives you those power options And its Dimension are ( Dia x H ): 1.9 x 0.6cm(0.75 x 0.24in)

This is NOT the route I was looking for. If I was going to use this route then I would just use this driver for a 445nm diode. In this build I was going to do PHR at 120mA I'm looking to change a value on the tailswitch to render the strobe/high/low function on the negative side of the circuit. I know that its pushing it, but I was hoping without putting to much effort into it that I could use the tailswitch IC.

I mean there's no real way to mod the original circuit, unless you build one from the ground up, i gave up and just scraped off all the original components and hot wired my tail cap to be momentary

Dude i think your heat sink whomps mine! i built mine out of a lump of aluminum made from 24 pop cans XD, but check out my build, the photos are on my website I spent 3 hours using a variety of metal file's, drill bit, and hacksaw. to make my heat sink, no CNC machines or mills or lathes used >

I'll check it when I can thanks man. I can show you how to make one from home depot parts also. The trick to this sink which makes this host hard to work with is the little lip area given at the threads... There is a work around ill post later.

Hey man I checked up on your pics... your very tenacious your hands looked like the tin man off The Wizard Of Ozz. I'll PM you on a possible alternative on the sink one that will be less of a work out for you. I'll wait till I'm home with a camera. Good job on that heatsink your arms must be wore out, hope you were wearing safety glasses with that dremel.
