Default Upgrading the TRX's LED?

The other evening, I finally had a bit of a night hunt. The backlight of the Max was great. But the "light" on my TRX was abysmal.

Does anyone have any experience in replacing the little LED with a brighter one?

The LED is board mounted inside the unit (water resistant/proof) so not likely you are going to be able to do anything with that.. Also brighter would mean a different current need which you can not control.. So maybe a head light for target recover..

Right hand side of the board at the top edge.. picture is kind of washed out with the flash

The TRX features a removable shell, allowing direct access the LED, so that won't be a problem. The current, on the other handů

Did you glue that staple on the shaft of the Trx? If so what is the purpose is it just like tuning the garret wit a piece of metal?
