I want to make my 5-mode MTE (DX 12060) a 2 mode by removing the driver and adding resistors to the tail switch. I'd like to be able to run at full power and at 75%. Currently, the medium mode is reported to be about 30%.
There's been some discussion in the past about what resistor values to use, and I'm currently thinking I would need about a 1 Ohm resistor to bring it to 75%.
It's also been suggested to use a 2 watt resistor for this application. A 2 watt resistor is huge, and I cannot believe that it would actually fit in the tail cap of this flashlight.
What value and capacity resistors are included in the 2-mode lights from MTE, Aurora, Trustfire, etc?
