    Hi Eric,

    I had a custom request: could I get a couple of extremely short "dummy cells" (or spacers) of standard CR123A diameter (16 or 17mm, I guess) by 4mm length ?

    Since 3P SureFires are tough to find (and expensive!), I have a SF L60 battery tube that is too long to fit (R)CR123's and too short to fit xx500's .... I measured the difference internally as 5/32" (or very nearly 4mm). I suppose I could use a couple of magnets instead, but would rather have something a bit more substantial for this "lego" light.

    Please let me know if you can help with this, and how much (for, say, two of these). Thanks !

    EDIT: I checked this measurement with a couple of different drop-ins, and found it to vary substantially depending on the length of the springs. However, I think that one or two 4mm spacers would probably give me enough flexibility to fit most of these which I might use

    Any idea how much current the 3AA to D adapter could take before melting?

    Probably more than most AA cells will ever give up.

    Hello Eric,

    no one has never asked before an adapter for side by side 18650 cells in a mag host? I need an adapter that can be switched for parallel or series for18650 cells....adattable also for 2D mag to 6D...if possible obvious!

    Please let me know, thanks.

    Hello Flex76italy,

    The adapters I build are non-adaptable to alternate configurations. If you have a specific configuration need, contact me via PM with that specific configuration for a quote on a custom unit. I have done a few side-by-side adapters for mags in the past as custom orders. As far as adapting them to work with different length hosts, that's just a matter of having dummy spacers made up to fill the empty space.

    Hello hippymill,

    Most people would just use a tube spacer to fill the void between the cell diameter and the inside diameter of the mag host and run the cells end-to end. In the case of a 2x18650>3D configuration, you would also probably need a short dummy cell to make up the difference in length, and a minor modification to the tailcap spring in order to make contact with the cell properly. Generally it is more common to do 18XXX cell conversions in C body maglites because they are a better use of space for cells mounted end-to-end.

    Hi Eric,

    Do you happen to make a 4AA to 1D series adapter? If so what's the cost?

    Thanks

    OddMod Please advise ...
    Could the 3aa(x3)=3D OddMod adaptor be constructed/wired with the 3AA (side by side) in parrallel and at the same time be wired in series for each 'D Cell' equivalent? This would limit total voltage to 3x(3x1.5v)=max 4.5v (if lithium aa's are used).

    I am trying to adapt the maximum number of energizer lithium AA bats within a 3D Mag, while not exceeding the 9.0v max rating for the Malkoff 3-6D dropin.

    The Malkoff Dropin info cautions:
    "The current output to the led is 1000ma on 3, 4, 5 or 6 D cells. It can be operated with rechargeable cells as long as the maximum input of 9 volts is not exceeded."

    CPF folk feedback appreciated also ...
