Not everyone has a hobby charger, so sequential numbering is the only way to track a single weak or defective battery if you can't read each battery's capacity.

For those with Emergency Lights in storage, and know the disappointment of Vampiric Batt Drain due to Drivers, switches, ect... theres an easy solution! i have a toddler and MANY of his electronic toys come with small slips of plastic to keep the batts from being drained in store or stock shelves. i save these lil plastic strips and when setting up my E-Lights (with lithiums ofcorse!) i place one of these little strips in between the Batt and the endcap, OR in my 6AAA packs, just in between a batt contact and the batt. knowing that these are there, its not hard to remember to open, pull tab, re assemble and use! with 11yr shelf life and drain prevention (thats re-usable AND/OR disposable) i feel comfort in knowing i'll have light when needed, without the worry of alkaline death or keeping batts separate from the light (which often leads to finding my expensive lith-batts in Gameboys, mp3 players, and Wiimotes)

Another good idea stolen from a Quark Mini AA thread....
If you ever need to use a AAA in AA light, just fold and roll a couple dollar bills around the AAA as spacers. If the tail spring does not have enough length to accommodate the shorter cell, just ball-up a little aluminum foil at the negative end for a spacer.

... and a large o-ring to fill the void of the Grommet. Used on a HDS Rotary;
Thin rubber bands help get more grip on small 1xAAA twisty flashlights, and make one-hand operation easier. I make mine out of bicycle inner tube.
This has to be the most difficult I‘ve done to date!
I Gorilla Glued the snap so it wouldn't unsnap!
The primo accessory for a utilitarian light is to wrap some duct tape around the butt of the battery tube.
Now you've got some duct tape, and you won't break your teeth biting the end either.
The brighter the light, the darker the shadow.
Hello Im new hear this is my first post love the site and I love home made mods. We'll see if this thread gets revived. I don't know if this will work yet as I do not yet have a flash light ( however I am anticipating getting a a Fenix PD32 UE when the budget allows. BTW if anyone has suggestions on any other light that is similar I am open.) Anyways I wanted it to be able to tail stand and that light can't and think this will work. Take a SureFire filter and knock out the colored filter part. insert 1 or more 1 inch O-rings into the side of the filter that goes on the flashlight and put that on the tail of the flashlight.
I am hoping the o-rings will act as spacers making the clicky button submerged enough to tail stand and hopefully still have enough room to allow the filter to stay attached to the back of the light. mean while since the filter part is knocked out you can click on the light. If anyone tries this let me know if it works. Otherwise I will let you know when ever I get around to trying it. If it does work it should work with other lights that have a 1 inch diameter tail.
I find that the Nintendo DS, DSI, DSI XL clear cases make excellent lenses as they are made from polycarbonate and are generally quiet scratch resistant and quiet a few can be made from either the top half or the bottom. Some sand paper onto that lense makes a good diffuser lense as others have suggested.
Ball bearing swivels make excellent additions to lanyards allowing pure unadulterated movement and never any bind between the torch and the lanyard regardless how its attached.
