    Default Building a fire flashlight

    I've finially decided to build a high output light like Mac's customs made a few years back. I purchased the 100w 12v bulb and a 2d cell mag light. I'll be turning a custom reflector soon enough. But I cant figured out the specs on the batteries. I can find Intellect 1400 1.2v NiMh in battery packs, but I'm not sure if they are the correct dimensions. Also, I need to modify the switch to handle the larger load. So any information on that would be great.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    You need to tri-bore the body of the Mag and get 12 (or 13) of these cells: http://www.cheapbatterypacks.com/pro...-1500-23A.aspx

    You will need to tri bore the battery barrel like this.

    Another option is tail switch like
    this.

    I just purchased 13 of the elite 1500 2/3 cells for 38.10(shipped). What kind of charger would you recommend?
