    Opinions on a vintage unopened surefire?

    Original B90 will be bad. If you arent into incan try to sell it. If you wanna keep you can run single Li-ion in adapter or 3x sub c NiMH. Lumen factory sells LED dropin for 8nx.

    Looking for a bare bones featureless taclight can't find anything plz halp?

    Elzetta is not cheap but indestructible. 150$ for fury defender is about original price. New old stock? Defender is fantastic + full regulation on liion 16650 but make sure your version has twist tailcap. You can use Z26 lanyard ring with it and it has everything you want.

    Worth noting that g2x tac. has clicky tailcap and runs on cr123. Running it on 16650 will work but with reduced runtime and output.

    I dont know what max. length a 2d tube can accommodate. There are 1x18650 B90 adapters for Surefire 9N available at about 132mm length, thats about 8mm or so longer then 2x D cells. Im thinking thats too long but 2x18650 can fit into 2d when cutting the spring so it might fit. Those will be too...

    Elzetta bravo or charlie with twist tailcap. B551 & C551 respectively. They run on cr123, non rechargeable. I think you can use 16340 in bravo but you loose capacity. Lanyard ring for Elzetta is available on their site. Malkoff MD2 meets criteria except momentary only, but you could use a Z41...

    What is the next big thig in LED technology?

    How is the brightness a problem? Are they too bright or lacking in brightness? The problem you describe was prevalent perhaps 15 years ago when multi 5mm LED lights were norm but LEDs have gotten a lot more efficient and brighter, nowadays there are countless high quality single Emitter LED...
