So original plan for this host was dual drivers to run 3.5 watt 9mm diode but week ago dropped my Ehgemus' s host from 3 stories up but was able spare the diode module so I built it in this copper host temporary but ended up liking it so much I ordered a new host from Ehgemus for my big build. So on with the pictures.

-9mm diode 445
-2.4 xdrive
-G-2 lens
-2× Aw 18650 batteries

The host comes in 4 pieces tail cap,battery tube,heat sink,focus ringer cap whatever you call it.
First feel is awesome, heavy and solid feel in the hand, got to give it to Sinner, it comes with focus ring for the g-2 lens, battery contact board, focus cap ,spring for the battery board,Allen key to tighten up the diode module.


Well since I built it before the photo ill just explain the rest. Ran my diode module into the heat sink, then ran the pos and neg leads through, can't see it but under the battery board he as a screw ready for the ground lead which makes it even easier, then soldered my pos lead to battery board then spring. Last thing I did was since the focus cap was slightly larger then the focus ring I used a dab of epoxy and waited till the epoxy starting getting harder then put the focus ring on and placed it on the host to make sure it all lined up right. Love the fact the host comes with everything you need, Sinner was a great host builder to deal with and couldnt be happier and plan on buying more from him later on down the road.

Last picture is a result of me trying to snap these pictures and burnt my wife's cabinet door that was 10' away but managed to burn it. Oops!!!!!!




Overall in really pleased with this build. Had to polish the host before the photo, had built up abit of tarnish from all the handling of this awesome host.

Good looking build, you can't go wrong with sinner's hosts! Nice touch with the GITD. :beer:

Sorry to see the collateral damage to the cabinets, hope you're not in the doghouse for too long. :D

Nice job, +rep!

Thank s everyone, this build was just smooth, favorite feature for me is the tail cap switch without the spring, just feels solid when you push to turn on and off. Sinner thanks for the great price. It was package very well. Look forward to getting g more host from you down the road, but dont build too many to sell or im gonna be broke real quick.

You should have played it all innocent,
like, "What? Where? Are you sure? That
doesn't look like a burn. Are you sure you
didn't burn it?" Then follow up with
ambiguous comments like, "That's weird."
