    I think so too. I think Spark should slightly lengthen the tube into which the battery fits. I put a ruler inside my Spark SD6-460NW in order to measure the depth of the tube. It was 68mm deep. My AW 18650 protected cell was between 66 and 67mm long. My AW 18650 cell sank 1 to 2 mm below the open end of the flashlight.

    I wonder if the Spark factory has ever varied the length of the tube into which the battery fits? If the factory has varied the length, it might explain why some of us have Spark SD6 flashlights with tubes which are too short, while others apparently have Spark SD6 flashlights with tubes of adequate length.

    For that reason I send mine back, maybe I received next week, I will see if that one had more room inside, like you say, they have to fit that and make it big to fit large batteries like the H600...

    Update, I receive the light, my protected batteries fit a little better, tight yet, well, I will had to try the small 18650 in the market... BTW, still waiting for the reflector, I must received it with the light but was not sent...
