Frankenmoiz 26650 mod finished. (beamshot)
I finished the Frankenmoiz last night and it works great! It was a relatively simple mod all things being relative. 

I started by removing the stock switch which also contained a small plug jack for charging from a outlet. In it's place I put two switches. One momentary switch for the e-cig and one rectangular tail cap switch for a C8. I did this by drilling out a hole for the 510 connector and filing out a rectangular slot for the switch. I used JB weld to keep them in place although they were both very tight to begin with. 

To wire this up I bypassed the first driver which runs the USB plug with an extra positive wire to both switches. Then from the flashlight switch I put another wire and soldered it to the positive end of the driver and one to the positive pole on the 510 connector. the negatives are made by contact with the flashlight body. 

For the flashlight mod, I replaced the Q5 emitter with a de-domed XP-G2 on a sinkpad and jumped a resistor on the driver to up the amps. Later on I'll but a qlite driver in so it has the moonlight mode. The beam has a large flood zone but also a very tight hotspot. The reflector is actually half orange peal and half smooth. It's a very deep reflector for a small light. It has a nice solid heavy pill that screws into the flashlight which is also surprisingly solid. So it has good heatsinking. 

I'm running king kong 26650 INR batteries so it will handle sub-ohm easily. The USB charger works great and is accessed by screwing down the silver ring. The flashlight is a great thrower with plenty of flood and the e-cig part is very comfortable to hit. I hit the button with my thumb and kind of hold it like a phone. I can use the flashlight and the e-cig at the same time.  I'm very happy with this 
mod. It was fun and easy to put together and just makes me smile thinking about how goofy it is but functional too. E-cig, Flashlight, phone charger and in a pinch I can charge it with a solar cell.

Thanks guys. I have been wanting to build a 26650 mod for a while and this host seemed really cool and the price was right. $14 I got mine on evil bay but this place is legit as well. I have bought from them before.
