Thread: cree torch conversion from strobe / flash to, on.

  1. #1

    cree torch conversion from strobe / flash to, on.

    as the title says. i bought a cree light and clamp to mount on my 17 hmr for bunny bashing.
    im amazed at the distance this little torch will go, but the annoying thing is, you have to go through the motion of strobe, flash, dull and then bright.
    does anyone on sd know of a conversion that can make the torch go , on off in the bright mode only.
    thanks in advance.
    regards mark.

    I too would love to know the answer to this, all I determined is the modes are controlled by the driver or power unit, not by the switch.
    I still have mine, but no longer use it for this very reason, I ened up buying another with only a single mode.

    Guys,

    Having a tiny brain I'm struggling to get this to work and it's also something I've been trying to suss out for ages.

    Please could someone put up an idiots guide to doing this. I've tried to follow the above but can't get it to work.

    Many thanks,

    ​Jim

    And I repeat doesn't work on mine.
    Most of the cheaper led torches about work on a sequence, you cannot make it do something it isn't designed for.
    The cheaper ones, like mine, will come on at bright setting if it hasn't been used for a few minutes, but if you use the rat tail switch
    as when lamping if you don't keep steady pressure on it it will go into sequential mode, short of leaving it off for 5 minutes or more
    there is no way but to let it cycle to bright again.
    Like I said earlier, I bought another that has only the one setting to replace the first.
