Hi all. Just recieved my new neutral SS Peak with QTC in the mail from Bob today! Very pumped, I LOVE the QTC operation, and ramping is especially smooth with non-alkaline batteries.
I have some 10440 cells in the mail, but currently have been trying some different AAA cells. The trouble is, with most of these cells the o-ring is slightly exposed in the off-position, and to cover it up any more results in turning the light on. This is a little bothersome, and since I found the threading can theoretically close up to .100'' past the o-ring groove if in fact the battery tube spacing was better designed.
Now my question is, is it safe to grind down the brass contact on the head? I measured the contact protrudes about .020'' from the epoxy, and if I took even .010'' off I could greatly improve the situation for a majority of AAA cells. Also, is there any other modification I can do short of machining a new body to give myself some more room for the battery?
Pictures to follow...
O-ring Issue is particularly evident with an Energizer primary lithium cell:
