hardcore Petzl Duo mods?

Postby SpeleoRover » May 15, 2008 10:22 am

Has anyone done any mods to the Petzl Duo? I began thinking about the drop-in side-emitting LED for the halogen side, but now I'm wondering if replacing the guts with a couple of whopper LED's might be the ticket. Think big, fat, chartreuse cousin of a Sten. :big grin:

Any thoughts? :shrug:

There is not much room inside the Duo.
I am trying to figure out how to mod one at this time.
I have completely gutted the one Im working on.
One problem I an having is no heat sinking in the closed unit.
