    Best rechargeable cells are AW brand protected cells. With the 50 lumen LF lamp, be sure you don't accidentally get one of AW's IMR cells for it. (Red Label). His cells are clearly marked on lighthound's site.

    I'm guessing you don't want to invest too much money for this rechargeable set-up. The Ultrafire WF-139 is a good, basic charger. You'll just need a 15mm Charging Spacer so the WF-139 can be used to charge the RCR123 cell you'll be using.

    With the WF-139... You have to keep an eye on it. This is not the sort of charger where you can go to bed, and just leave the cells charging overnight. This charger doesn't stop charging once the cells are full. You have to watch for the light on the charger to turn green, and turn it off right then. When you do remove the cells from it, it's best to wait a few minutes before installing them into your light.

    AS noted, McGizmo did some a few years ago. I just snagged one, will get some pics up soon. He removes the driver and bores the body. LE has to go a bit farther forward in the head as compared to a regular Aleph or E Series.

    Here are a couple of random pics that do not reflect the current collection:

    Looks like a stock tailcap with lanyard ring that Milkyspit modified and tagged.

    Looks like Milky did the resistor mod to it to lower the low. I just did one with a 100ohm resistor and it is super low. I plan to do a 20 or 30 ohm next. I need to label it just like that one. I got clear label tape for just that reason.

    The trick in taking them apart is that once you get the boot off, you need to use two small regular screwdrivers to pull off the pressed in plastic mushroom cap - carefully with one screwdriver on either side oppposite each other so you are pulling it straight up without pushing it to the side. It may still break, but then you just have to glue it back together when you re-assemble it.

    Forgot to mention-

    My new E2E-HA-CB came with a really neat black zipper up black nylon display/carry case with a nice heavy duty foam insert.. Not sure if that's standard issue for an E2E or what, but I didn't notice that was part of the deal at the time I ordered it.. I got the thing for $79 brand new from OP. I'm wondering if that's a mistake or what because they are selling the HA version with the nice case for the same price as a satin finish (non-HA?) E2E with no fancy case...

    Thought yall might like to know

    An E2e-HA for 79 bucks?? That's crazy! Are they still available at that price? I've only seen them in plastic blisters... I'd love to get that nice box as well...

    Hi phxccw,

    PM returned

    As gswitter says, it's "optics planet"...

    Sometimes they don't like us posting a lot of links around here and I can't remember all the policy on that so I didn't include it originally, I'm sure it's no big deal..

    I was originally just going to pick up a satin version for even cheaper using the CPF discount over at spyder tactical, but decided to go with OP when I noticed I could get the HA version for the normal price of a satin, that and I needed to order a Z46 at the same time and OP is one of the only places that carries those.

    Only problem with OP, which everyone seems to report, is that most orders get back-ordered and take longer than expected to ship out. It's not a bad trade-off to deal with though for the price point. I think mine took ~10-12 days from the day I ordered to arrive.

    -Eric

    I started W/SF 6p got E1L which I love and carry every day, but had have a C3 which now sits unused like the 6P since I bought an E1e after reading CPF post's and enjoying the E1L.

    P.S I'm sick and the only cure is an E1L W/ A Hand stamping E2d bezel for anyone trying to steal one of my flashlights.

    Dare I ask what that lot is worth or the answer too frightening to contemplate?

    I only have 3 - an E1e with a Fivemega bi-pin LA, E2e OD bored out for 17670 and running various LF lamps, and an E2E BK totally stock which I received only two days ago, and it looks gorgeous! The battery tube is a lot narrower inside than the OD version so it'll take more work to bore out for 17670 but when it's done I'll have the option of a Nitecore Extreme head for work. Already stuck the head on for curiosity and it's lovely.

    The TW4 is awesome being that it uses the KL4, but without the heat and only a slight decrease in output...but too bad you can't find the old KL4 anymore

    Here are my current models. For some reason, I keep selling my E2Es. I think I like the 17500 size best.
