Talking FS: RL-2088 'Frankenstein' Kit! With FlexModP3...

Great host for the new 3.5 Watt diodes using the FlexModP3 4 Amp driver!







This host is not cheap, but it is a unique, very good quality, solid build. I really like the thick stainless steel bezel... (holster is optional and does not come from every supplier)



DTR first set this host up with a FlexModP3 driver shown here:
2W 445 DTR Frankenstein Ultrafire RL-2088 Handheld Host

For a 445 build, you can get your diode pre-installed into an AixiZ module with lead wires soldered on from daguin or DTR.

In that case, you will just connect your diode leads, to my driver leads... ('Hot' option kit)






Note:

This host is also great with the very efficient X-Drive buck driver.

I have the X-Drive buck drivers on hand. I have 1.8 Amps, as well as 2.1, 2.4, and 3.4 Amps.

I can set up an X-Drive 'Hot' option thermal glued to the pill with lead wires, ready for your diode connection...

(after I machine the top of the pill flat, it can just be thermal glued there)






(FlexModP3 no longer available - use X-Drive mentioned above) I have since designed a 'drop in module' type of build for the FlexModP3 driver using this RL-2088 'Frankenstein' host...

See here for another review of this kit!



The FlexModP3 drop in design, makes for a very easy assembly to install your diode...

You can get a 445 diode pre-installed into an AixiZ module with lead wires soldered on from daguin or DTR

Note: You will not be using the back 'barrel' part of the AixiZ module. Just the front 'business end'.

This set up will use 3 X 18650 Li-Ion batteries in series using the stock battery holder that comes with the host. High quality AW batteries are recommended. I recommend using these:
AW 18650 Protected 3100 mAh Rechargeable Lithium Battery

Here's one source for the host that I have purchased from: (it came with the protective holster shown in the first picture of this thread)
Wholesale Ultrafire RL2088 SST 50 LED 3 Mode 900Lumens Flashlight

I see that this site also includes the holster for about $92 bucks: (but they will charge a lot for shipping)
UltraFire RL-2088 Luminus SST-50 LED 3X18650 High Power Flashlight wholesale source: UltraFire RL-2088 Luminus SST-50 LED 3X18650 High Power Flashlight [3052]









'Hot' option:

This design is using the diode case pin for the negative supply to the driver as shown below...







I want to mention that the negative contact points on the FlexModP3 (both input and output), are continuous. So if you wanted to, you could just connect the diode case pin to the negative pin (blu-ray or 445), and just connect to the negative output of the driver just like you can also do with a V5 FlexDrive if you wanted to...

But as the picture shows, I went ahead and just ran an extra wire direct to the negative input side of the driver.

The 445 diode case pin has plenty of length left for soldering an isolated wire to. Just remove the pink triangle piece from the pins. And you can solder to the case pin...











RL-2088 'Frankenstein' Kit pricing and options:

Note: I have seen a couple of different head designs on the inside of these RL-2088 hosts. Some do not need extra machine work inside the head, and some need the extra machine work. If there is extra machine work needed for yours, then there will be some extra cost. But I'm thinking that the newer ones will not need the extra machine work inside the head...



You can either send me your host, or I can order it for you... ($130)

(If you buy the kit, and also a 405-G-1 glass lens together, I will polish the face of the heatsink for free if desired)

* Heatsink - $39
* Polish the face of the heatsink - $10 Not perfect like a piece of mirror - will be very nice and shiny (but you can still make out some very fine machine or sand marks if you look close enough)
* (no longer available) FlexModP3 'Hot' option including driver, with fiberglass mount and battery contact end piece - $95 (current set to your specification)
* X-Drive buck driver 'Hot' option thermal glued to pill with lead wires ready for your diode - $58 (specify 1.8, 2.1, 2.4, or 3.4 Amps)
* AixiZ module - $5
* AixiZ 445 lens - $11
* 405-G-1 glass lens - $55
* 650-G-1 glass lens - $52
* Shipping will be 3% of total plus postage (PayPal fees plus postage) PM for total...
* Shipping Policy

The only parts missing from the list of options, are the diode and the batteries...


Gnarly!

Just a heads-up that the Shenzen-Wholesale website adds shipping on extra - and it's usually around $20 or so I believe. So that host from them ends up above $100 after all.

Nice pics!

If you wanted to lessen the gap between the focus adapter and the heatsink, it is really easy to just position the copper module a little farther into the heatsink just a tad...

But I can understand wanting to make sure the heatsink never gets scratched!

Default Frankenstein kit modded with Laserglow 10x beam expander!

This is my last insane creation: a fantastic Jayrob's Frankenstein kit with
a 10x modified Laserglow beam expander!
First of all, the major lucky was that the internal diameter of the
beam expander fits perfectly into the external diameter of the host bezel.
(with a very little gap allowing fine beam centering).
I have two beam expanders, one working with Hercules, another damaged.
I have scratched the coated film trying to clean it with a camera lens cleaning fluid,
but now this expander will be really useful for the Frankenstein kit.
I have removed the residual coated film with an ultra-fine 3M polish paste, so
no coated filters are over the lens anymore.

This is my Frankenstein kit configuration:

Axis 405-G1 lens;
Laserglow 10x Beam Expander;
3x Enerlion Samsung professional protected cells 3000 mAh each;
Diode current set at 1.8A.

In order to have the best output, these are the main steps to follow:

- First of all, untwist at max the lens of the 10x
beam expander, then shut on the laser and shot against
a wall (3 meters or more will be ok, but please use glasses
of shot against a black surface).
You should see a circle with inside a big unfocused dot line.

- Twist the frankenstein body and set the dot line horizontal
( -- , not | );

- Center the dot line left and right. It means that
no part of the line must be cutted, or you lost a lot of power,
and risk to overheat and damage the 10x beam expander body.
On the other side, the line shouldn't be too short,
or the 10x beam expander cannot reach short focusing.
To modify the dot line You must remove the 10x expander, try to
find a good focusing twisting the knurled disc clockwise/counterclockwise,
put the 10x beam expander back again and see the results.
I reached a perfect tuning twisting the 405-G1 knurled disc
at one and half counterclockwise turns (from the beginning of the thread);

- Twist the Frankenstein body to obtain a vertical dot line ( | , not -- );
with the help of the three set screws of the 10x beam expander, and moving
the expander body left-right, center the line in the middle of the circle
(aka the middle of the 10x expander big len).
When You have centered the dot line in both the axes, block the screws.
At the end of the screws there is some kind of rubber, so the bezel
cannot be damaged in any way. Please do not overtighten the screws.

Note: a thin knurled disc may be the best solution if You mind to use
a Laserglow 10x beam expander, because there is no enough room between
a thick knurled disc and the body of the beam expander. If the knurled disc
is thick, You will not be able to block the 10x expander to the frankenstein
host.

Now You have the most insane dangerous burning blue dot in the world!
Forgot to use it without glasses!
If You are pointing to a white/reflective surface, or You are too close
to the dot itself, You can burn Your eyes immediately!
Please remind what tremendous heat can generate a 2 watt perfect
focused rounded dot! At a distance of 15 meters, the wood
of a tree in my garden has started to smoke very fast and very much!

Good burnings and always keep Your eyes safe.

Richard.
