Pretty cool idea to remove the pill and make your modules 'swappable'...

Thanks for posting back!

For his red/rkcstr modules, you can use a 4171 with 2 X RCR123 rechargeable batteries...

For his blu-ray/rkcstr modules, you can use a 3405 with 3 X 10440 batteries. You can now get protected 10440's:

Default Re: FS: MXDL Host & Heatsink Combo! (4171 or 3405)

Update: The newest and latest 4171 hosts from DX, are a completely different style that the 'old style', and the 'new style' shown in my first post.

They can take 2 X CR123, but the batteries would need a sleeve, because the host will fit an 18650. Also, the heatsink is completely different. It has a cone shape at the bottom to fit this host.

This new host also has the head glued onto the host. But the pill can be removed (unscrewed) without removing the head.



So if ordering a heatsink for a 4171, please take note of the two styles shown below. And of this new style. I need to know which one you have.

The heatsinks for this latest style, will be a larger diameter material, and have a cone shape at the bottom to fit this host. They are a little more work to make, and will be $25 dollars each. Plus $3 dollars shipping...

Default Re: FS: MXDL Host & Heatsink Combo! (4171 or 3405)

Check out the update on the 4171 in the very first post...

According to DX customer support, they received the wrong lights from their supplier. So hopefully we can still get the popular 4171's. But I won't know for another week or so. They are checking into it.

But I have several other hosts that will make a great blu-ray build using a FlexDrive 'Hot' option. See the list here:
jayrob Build Kits, Lenses, and Other Stuff Listed Here!

I would recommend the 18650 kit, or the side button kit...

For a PHR, 100mA's would give good longevity to your diode. But most people push them a little, because they are only about $10 bucks to replace. I personally like 125mA's for a normal efficiency PHR.

You can get them pre-installed into AixiZ modules at Modwerx.com, so just PM me when your ready!

Ok, well as soon as I find out what's up with DX, then I will update this thread...

No more of the normal style 4171's on hand. Hopefully, DX will resolve this issue.

Default Re: FS: MXDL Host & Heatsink Combo! (4171 or 3405)

You know, if using a FlexDrive 'Hot' option, a 3 X AAA host is better than the 4171...

With a 4171/FlexDrive build, I install a silicon diode before the driver to drop voltage. And you must use 2 X 3 volt primaries only. Not rechargeable.

With a 3 X AAA host/FlexDrive build, you will have a lot more capacity. And have the option of using standard AAA batteries, or standard AAA rechargeable batteries if you want.

As far as looks and size, my side button kit is very similar to the 4171. Plus it is a side button clicky! (not to mention $3 dollars less!)

Default Re: FS: MXDL Host & Heatsink Combo! (4171 or 3405)

Jayrob, I was looking at ordering one of Mohrenberg's blu-ray modules and mounting it in one of these. Would the 3405 with 3x 10440's work well with that? Also is there anything that would help with the installation of the module?

Yes, the 3405 would be perfect for his rkcstr modules...

It has plenty of room inside for the full length AixiZ module. Even the version 2 heatsink style will have enough room. But the version 1 heatsink style will give even more room.

All you have to do is get two lead wires from the pill. When you take the stock LED emitter off, you will see how it is wired. There is a positive lead from the center of the round board.

The negative is the threaded pill. The connection is via a wire that is pinched between the round board and the pill.

I like to solder the wire to the outside ring of the circuit board, then remove the board and clip the other end of the ground wire shorter, and then solder my negative lead to it.

Then just make sure it is pinched back nice and 'snug' when you put the board back into the pill.

Using fine wire is best. If the wire on the rkcstr module is too thick, it will be more difficult to fit, but this host has plenty of room.

As an option, I will solder on two lead wires for an extra $10 bucks...
