Remeber this battery hoder we were all looking at a while back?
Well, an associate of mine found it's source. However, they insist on bogarting the thing [img]graemlins/icon13.gif[/img] . So, what to do? We are going to open up a mold and make them ourselves! [img]graemlins/icon14.gif[/img] Should be available in about a month. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Should be priced at approximately $2.50 to $3.00 each.
This battery holder holds 3 AA batteries, and is exactly the same size as a D cell battery. So two will fit perfectly into a 2D flashlight for 9 volts, or 7.2 with rechargables. You could use 3 or 4 or 5, whatever, to get the voltage you need to do whatever. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Working on behalf of all CPF members, to get the parts we need, to do the mods we want. Actually I really want them for a 5 watt flashlight I'm working on, but will share them with anyone who wants them. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
So how about a 2D *ag*ite, using two of these battery holders. Mount a 5W of your color choice, and use the new 30mm optics. Sounds nice, huh?
