i would like to do a mod but unfortunatly i dont have the time and here in greece now we cant buy from ebay parts with paypal untill all this thing with the banks capital controls over. if i do a mod it would be only a replacement battery adaptor with 3 AA size that could be rechargeable with mini usb port from external charger, the 3R12 battery it really has too low capacity nominal 1200mah and need a better one. and a replacement of the incadecent lamp with one led or xenon would be nice! my mod interest its not so extencive like yours! you have made great job, congrats again!
if i made a mod surely i would post it, but not too much time lately, but i like your project, its nice to see all that old beautiful things get a new life and not only sea in drawer! i actually used the varta model 20 years ago as my back up military flashlight during my military duty service, i used in in a excercize, but the 3R12 battery had too low capacity and really dead after only few hours of use! but it was handy pocket size. i never knew back then that the metalic holder was actually meant to put it on your jacket button so you have hands free! you always learn new things!
hello, if you not yet buy a flashlight with leds there its available military angle head flashlights with 5 led head from the companies mil-spec and mil-tec, and they are cheap too. and you can also use the color lences too!. i buy 2 mil-tec ones one with D cell batteries and one with C size batteries.
great project! love how you made it! i have one same flashlight like the green, it only diferent it can hold one extra bulb inside the plastic holder! its made by Varta.
