    Wink2 Pineapple Brass/TI closeout prices / Will reduce prices till they are gone

    I need money for new projects R&D so Im clearing my pineapple stock.

    Just in case, the pineapple body is a E-Series compatible body suited for Surefire E-Series, Aleph series, etc.




    Im selling the few units I kept for myself. No need for "I'll take it" paypal transaction timestamp will be used for the queue.

    Thanks in advance!

    Since PEU is offline at the moment.......

    Typically 18650s won't fit in pineapples but a 17670 will.

    The middle picture is a Ti pineapple, the bottom pic is a bare aluminum (not for sale) just brass and Ti this time.

    This is a sample of a light that can be built with these bodies!

    Are there any threads on the forum someone could recommend that would show some other ideas on what is required to build a light from one of these bodies? I'm really new at even considering building my own light.

    I have no idea where parts would come from or what sort of batteries would fit in these things or what could be expected for output lumens.

    Thanks

    The short, simple answer... start with any 2-cell Surefire E-series light (E2e, E2o, E2d, E2L, L4, etc), unscrew the head, unscrew the tailcap, remove the batteries, and reassemble using the Pineapple instead of the Surefire body.

    Beyond that, the possibilities are almost endless. See here, for starters...

    Hi, is the brass one pure brass or coated / anodized??

    Sorry for asking this question, but doesn't brass tarnish after a while?

    I have one, and it is pure brass. Yes, brass does tarnish. A little brass polish would soon bring a shine back

    It does tarnish, but the patina that develops is often much sought after.

    If this is not to your liking though, a quick spit and polish will bring it
    back to a golden sheen.

    Did you do that or is that a Kenster job? Beautiful polishing whoever it was.

    Pablo,

    Pardon me for asking but why is the insurance so costly. I'm not familiar with how they do it down there but typically UPS charges $1 per $100 over $100 dollars. I'm considering one of these but I'm a little leary of having it shipped without insurance.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Because local post does not offer insurance at all, so I take the risk, I put these extra money aside to cover lost units hoping that the balances are even in the long run...

    But, don't worry, local post for international shippings works very well and you can track your package until it leaves Argentina

    AndyTiedye: thanks, will ship on monday!

    Its not possible to bore an E-series body to accept 18650 batteries, you would end up with no metal to hold the top threads. Thats why all e-series 18650 bodies are made of two parts. 17670's are OK

    I thought you had posted one that you had made a while back.
    Was that a one-off?

    I made a Surefire U2 18650 body, it is possible to do it because the U2 head is male, so I had to remove the top threads and bore the body to make the female threads, this allowed to make the tube wider.

    Take a look:



    I think I still have some of these custom bodies, or should I say recustomized custom bodies
