    Is that a special request or is it in the offering options?

    That is good then. I can at least see some usage for this pack now. Will look just nice running a 3v Makai with it.

    Etched clip vs. standard clip.

    I believe it's an option. I'm not sure if there's an extra charge. If there is it probably wouldn't be too much.

    It used to come with the BB finish lights. Now that Don is not doing BB lights anymore, he may or may not have any lying around. You'd have to email him and ask real nice.

    Hi NBP.
    Thanks for that image. It is a nice clip. Just dawned on me that I can use the clip as a way to identify which LE is in the host. (If you have more than 1)

    Thanks.

    What if you lathe the Mule head down to match the body? It looks like there is enough material to make it match the body. Does Don make a CRI Mule head? That would be neat paired with this body.

    The 1xAA pak is E-series geometry and this does restrict how small any head can be. I don't have any plans at present for different heads for it. I have been logging some time on a prototype AA converter (1.5V) which is pretty cool and anticipate being able to add it to the offerings within the next couple months or so. I will wait until I have a production version of the converter before getting into its details. The Nichia High CRI LED's are an obvious option for this pak and the new converter since the max drive current dictated by the power supply will be below the capacity of the LEDs.

    Brian. You should jump straight in. But beware, there is no getting out after that.

    Once you do it, you will agree with me that it is the best decision you will ever make. Make it soon.

    Should have cells tomorrow to try it out.

    With the availability of the 1xAA pak, it sets the stage for another McGizmo milestone. If the 1.5V LE comes to mature fruition, it will enable a large swathe of new users to enjoy the McGizmo lights. I do know for a fact that there are some people that do not want to be bothered with CR123 as it may not be easily available in where they reside or just too cumbersome to handle RCR123. Of course, one can say there is the 2AA pak. Many including myself found that it is a bit too long to EDC unnoticed.
    But with the single AA, it is a no brainer for anyone to use it.With easily available AA battery found anywhere in the world, McGizmo lights will become more appealing to the commoner or non flashaholics.

    All I can say is that Don is going to be a busy man.....

    Hi Don,


    Do these Paks use the EPDM o-rings also? If so, what size are they? I forgot about how my Nyogel likes to eat EPDM and that I had swapped to Viton on my 123 Paks. Might be time to order some o-rings for this size Pak. Thanks for your help.

    Hi nbp,
    Yes, these use the same #017 O-ring as the other paks do.

    .....
    Yes, you are correct. sorry for the confusion. With a 14500 Li-Ion protected cell this pak and battery can be used with any of the 3 volt (3S) heads or with a AA battery this pak can be used with an AA converter based head. The modularity of this system is both good news and bad news I guess.

    The resulting head would have very thin sides and wouldn't be very strong. It might even be thin enough to bend just from being dropped on the floor.

    Does anyone have the 1xAA pak and mule head combo as shown in the first post? If so, are you able to provide the overall length of the light?

    Cheers,
