Be careful with those 14500 cells as they don't exist , 1200mah and certainly 2300mah is made up figures. Iirc the highest is around 840mah from Sanyo , anything more is not happening . Who knows what's inside, could even be a 10440 cell packed with sand!
The pany B cells are good !
Avoid anything ending in fire and stick with good brands like KeepPower to name one. Panasonic , Sanyo , Samsung ,LG,Sony . Charger wise Xtar and nitecore do well priced decent chargers to get you going . Ideally ones with a voltage readout to keep an easier eye on things .

I decided to pull the trigger on the last best chance to own a red, a yellow, a blue and a toxic green Preon2. I ordered all the individual parts to make them from FourSevens. Now for the three day wait.........
Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.
I'm getting back into the scene after a few years away. I've got the following:
Acebeam K60 (bought locally from fstoplights - wow, it's impressive!)
2x Convoy S2+ (neutral white, 2.1a)
Manker E14 (Nichia)
Solarstorm X2 (neutral white)
4x NCR18650GA batteries
2S2P Solarstorm battery box
Now just gotta wait on the shipments from Gearbest, Kaidomain, and Fasttech!
Jetbeam Jet-IIIM | Jetbeam Jet-Ti M R2 | Solarforce L2M/L2P/L2T/T1 | Quark 123 | Quark Mini CR2 Ti | Solarstorm X2 | Fenix P2D Q5 (Lost in North Korea) | Acebeam K60 | Convoy S2+ | Manker E14
Coming in the mail: MX25L4CvnT, DriverVNX2, XPL pdt, ANSI lumen 5000, lux 185K, throw 860m.
Performance specs for this light are close to performance specs for lights that are significantly larger in head diameter and significantly heavier. Anything with some more throw and similar lumens is a lot heavier and bulkier.
This item has maximum throw to weight ratio in a 2.5 inch diameter package, with 5,000 lumens in a 550 gram package with batteries, versus similar performing lights that weigh about 750 grams with batteries, and that also have larger head diameter.
Now for the two and a half day wait. But I can't complain about that. Vinh mailed this to me a few days earlier than what was expected, considering the method of payment that I use. Thanks, Vinh!

Just ordered a DQG Ti VIII Titanium AAA/10440 (Neutral White) to replace my ancient Arc-P that has finally died (yes I've cleaned it, also wanted more than one mode and a brighter LED)
Solar force L2p, XML-HI v23B3, dr jones driver, SMO Reflector and 15mm isolation gadget. First build. Hope it goes right.
Of course it will go right, perfect in fact and look forward to the pics
Just got Efest 26650 Purple 5200mAh IMR26650 High Discharge Flat Top batteries, and my Cooley is on it's way. I also ordered some 4mil copper sheets I can cut to wrap dropins. Waiting on that and Vinh's Quad XPL HI 5000K, Brightest neutral with good throw $165 ANSI 2450 Lumen, 22K Lux , 300m Throw.
So what light is that at the end of the tunnel?

Unless she chooses a Lumintop AAA that we already have, then the D25AAA is all mine. ;-)

Very special! Thanks for sharing Robyn's best...
I love the "smoothies."
WTB: Aleph2 / Aleph19 style (E-Series) parts and lights in bare aluminum, brass or titanium ............ Thanks, CPF!
Awesome Rick, congrats!
Really like the MT10A. Turbo on a 14500 is short runtime but the light screams I have no trouble believing the poster that claimed it's actually over 1,000 lumens on a fresh IMR, and it's smaller than it looks in photos, at least to me. Pretty nice for a light that runs on literally any AA battery. The up-down buttons and forward clickly tailcap are nice too.
TN12 is still a few days out.
BUT now I'm also waiting on a ZL SC63 XHP35 and Thrunite Archer 2A V3...as well as a pair of Panasonic NCR18650GA, MH-C9000 wizardone, and XTAR VP2.
I hang around CPF for a couple weeks and suddenly my charges-everything Nitecore D2 isn't good enough and my SC62w is outdated.
