Well I hoped to be adding my review of a similar build but I think I managed to kill my flexdrive. Going to have to wait until tomorrow after work when I can yank everything apart and test it once I reassemble my test load. At least I didn't LED my diode.

Looks nice. I think ill try to build some of my own.
Building something yourself is the most rewarding part about this hobby. Good luck and if you need any help along the way let me know.:)

A cheap soldering iron should not be too bad. Get some flux, shrink tubing and wire from Flaminpryo and some solder and you will be set.:)

You don't need to start a new thread. You just need to PM Mohrenbergh and he will set you up.;)

I actually have not had one of these in a while. I assume it was pretty warm but these had pretty large heatsinks so it should handle it about as well as any 18650 sized flashlight host out there.:beer:
