    Hi Chris,
    Any chance of an aluminum version?

    I guess I can start an interest list in Aluminum. I will make the 18650 version in aluminum also. It will probably be more of a discussion list rather than a sales thread since I am planning on making the 18650 light in aluminum anyways.

    I would personally prefer a larger head based on the D36 drop-in to match the proportions of the 26650 body, based on the generated designs above.

    Both look great Chris, exactly what I was looking for.
    Thanks for putting this interest thread up.
    I'm in for version 2 but will be happy with either one.

    I am sure that could be done. As of now it has an adapter and head for the P60 style drop in. Trying to keep the light as sleek as possible. I will check on the D36 Drop-in. Might be a little time since I don't have one of those heads or drop-ins available to take some measurments from.

    I didn't want to just make a large head when just using a P60 drop-in.

    BTW! The renderings don't do the finished work any justice.

    Thanks for considering the idea of a D36 head.
    With this head, the general proportions with a 26650 body would probably look more similar to the P60 light,
    but just a larger version.

    It would offer a longer run time because of the 26650, but also more throw because of the larger reflector.
    CPF'er "nailbender" has a thread for D36 drop-ins as well as for P60 drop-ins (which are in fact equivalent to D26)

    How much bigger is the d36? I also think the head needs to be bigger.

    The D36 reflector is 36mm in diameter vs. the P60/D26 which is 26mm.

    This is a light that saltytri made which has a 26650 body and a head which contains a D36 reflector just to illustrate the proportions:-

    Never mind...I just got my answer. I should read the opening thread more carefully.

    I can't believe I'm the only one that wants a light like this.
    OK go ahead and make mine.

    I guess the ones that saw it wanted a larger head. I haven't been able to design a larger head because I don't have a D36 drop-in. Now if someone wanted to loan me theirs, or let me know where I could get one for cheap, I would be able to design the head around it.

    I don't have a D36 head or drop-in yet but if the the D36 head will fit the above body and also the 18650 version I would be interested in all of them. I really want and need the 26650 body so if the D36 head and the P60 style head both fit both bodies I'm all for it.

    Yeah, I can't figure out why this 26650 host looks so long.

    I'd prefer a P60 head on a 26650 body, I guess. This host doesn't seem to take advantage of the size of the battery??

    Maybe I am just unable to size it correctly in my mind's eye.

    It is only 5.35" long, half of that is the battery.

    I'm having a good think about this host and I can't seem to justify getting one yet in my mind (but I'm working on it)

    * Ti can't take too much heat so DD IMO is out, (even a fairly hard driven xp-g will cook in Ti) so you are only getting 1000 extra amp hours runtime out of a 26650 battery for having that extra bulk and they are not protected (but maybe the 4sevens ones are)
    * if it had a D36 head/drop in you would get more throw but that's all - you still can't push any led hard ether way.

    I would buy a couple 26650 lights in aluminum and HA natural or black coating. I think there would be a lot of people who missed FM's offering that would in for a few too. This type of host would be great for the P60 quads being offered lately. A seperate D36 head to use with this body would be nice too.

    I am interested in making it, just not very cost effective to just make one. I will post a new rendering where I slimmed the battery tube down just a tad. I believe it looks a little more proportional.

    Is this a viable option? ..the ti is gorgeous but right now I think the d26 head on 26650 body in Aluminum is hotter, I'd be in.

    I may just pass on the aluminum version and get two of these.

    We might have one more person to get on this list. If we do you Morelite was able to purchase two, then this would be a go. I would have to get confirmation from eveyone on the list to make sure they are still interested.

    Is there a chance you will make an adapter and D36 head for these too?
