    Thanks, I will try it. Check for voltage?

    Which battery, combination do you recommend of the different brands for 18350?

    I would stick with 1x18650 - I've had good luck running Sanyo NCR18650GA 3500mAh High Discharge Flat Top

    Interesting how things pop up. I had freshly charged a set of AW 18350s over the weekend and loaded them in my Z70 host with an Oveready V5 XPL-Hi drop. Short operation in the backyard last night and... lights out. 🧐

    Turns out one of the batteries decided to die! It had been charged and used many dozens of times over the last few years but gave no signs during charging or use of impending failure. A quick check with my multimeter and that battery is toast. I’m taking its mate out of service since they were always used as a pair. Never ran them below 3.7v and promptly charged them after use.

    A fresh set of batteries and all is normal. 🤗

    Note to self... find new source for 18350s. Any update on the AW factory situation?

    Ordered a pair of those 18650's last night. Thanks!

    Yeah, the BOSS caused one of two of my 18350's to fry. It recharged, then fried again. Going to wait for my 18650's to arrive. Would have liked to see full power, though. If I had known, I would have bought the 219 Nichia.

    IMO the Sanyo (Japan) are equal to AW in quality

I noticed that there is a slight gap between the Black head and Black body but almost none for Patina head and Black body. I'm wondering if the problem is because Patina head doesn't totally screw down on the Black body.
    Sorry for the difficulty. It could the spacing but it may also be tightness.


    BOSS has a dedicated negative contact surface around the spring. This operates when the body is fully tight. Uncoated bodies also have a second path through the threads, that works when threads are clean. Black bodies have coated threads, providing lock out function by preventing the second path, leaving only the primary path. So the first thing to check when it doesnt fire up is that the body is tight against the head.

    If that doesn’t help there may be another issue. Please let know and we can try more steps.

    v5 is platform that includes power switch operation (BOSS) and electronic switch operation (fl33, hds). 481 is specific to E switches and is not appliable to clicky switches, including BOSS.

    Its possible the cell died under load and wont work in lower draw appications. its also possible the cell is alive, just unable to pass the tests v5 performs every turn on so ensure cells arent over taxed. Every BOSS is hand tested before shipping, let me know if new/other cells dont improve operation!

    I've had good results with AWT and my V5 light. Also I've been using rebadged Aspire 18350 1100mah cells.
    I get them from Ampsplus.co.uk who rewraps them as Ampsplus, but I'm sure there's other that do the same. He does ship worldwide, but how economic that works out i don't know.

    I'm looking for an HDS 325 Clicky. If you have a spare would you please give me a shout? Thanks. Peter

    ^ Keepower (China) does the same re-labeling for different companies. I wonder what mdgr'd cells will be under OR labels?

    Update.

    Had to get rid of several batteries that did not cut the mustard with the 70Ti Frost Boss. Found a pair of 18350 700 mAh which work. Turbo beam is a monster. Also found an 18650 that works. She's picky, but she's pretty.

    Question for the experts. Trying to chose the mode as part of an order was between HMLC and CLMH (color mixed). Not sure what this last one is.

    Sort of. That was an early test setup. Production looks like so:




    Small drive is for McClicky, big drive is for 'breaking caps', like forcing loctite when removing twisty kits from stock z41 tailcaps (near 2000 in/lbs)!

    All tips are custom made by tom, you'd need to ask him how

    Normally, but we are focused on frosted production this month so additional raw options will be trickling in on random days. Today is one of those days so several options are ready to order:

    Nothing does it for me like a good stonewashed finish. Like the light is already very well used but not at all abused. Ready to go wherever and do whatever. Completely unafraid to ruin its shiny surface because it has none. Uncaring of rub marks or wear marks, scuffing from holsters, etc...
    I love a light with no plating or anodizing for all those same reasons even more.
