    2x21700?

    What is the latest word on this? Thought I ran across rumblings of an impending release months back...

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Very nice. Probably looking at a 15mm-20mm spacer if going the unprotected route.

    M61T + M91T Beam Shots

    If only to take advantage of the (relatively) high current delivery of cells such as the P42A/30T/40T3/et al. But going over that post in Porch with the melted TIR doesn't inspire much confidence in heat dissipation pushing 6A and above. A hotter HOT may need a Pyrex (or similar) lens.

    HDT...Sounds interesting. Anything on the 2x21700 front?

    2022 5G cell phones, best deals?

    I keep it off for another reason: To extend battery life. 4G LTE works just fine in most areas.

    What flashlight company has the best warranty

    Of those I actually had to deal with a warranty issue, SureFire. I am sure Malkoff is right up there, if not better (honestly wouldn't know, never needed to call them out on anything yet ;)).

    Pixel 5a and then flash GrapheneOS over the stock OS. Purchase unlocked direct or via a brick and mortar (online or in-store). Don't opt for a (bootloader) locked carrier version. 2.5 years of guaranteed security updates from Google. Else, spring for a Pixel 6 with just over 4.5 years of...

    Fraz Labs Mechanical Flashlights (formerly QTC Non-Battery Crush)

    Where is the love for the Lumenite 21700 :) ? Need one with the new engine and sans tailcap!

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Really depends on what they are willing to settle with in terms of amp draw. We see Convoy pushing 1x21700 to 8A, but don't expect Malkoff to push it that high with the Keeppower 50E. Definitely curious what they plan on doing given the 21700 power ceiling...

    Elzetta- The industry's best kept secret.

    I was going back and forth for an hour or so last night. Only it seems as if the HC may be the old XML-2 in a deep reflector. If it is at least XPL-HI, then I may be more receptive to the idea. Someone pick one up and let us know what we have here :)

    So Malkoff has 1x21700 bodies now. Waiting on 2x21700

    Interesting. Both of my tubes fire up M61/M61N/M91T without much issue: The lengthwise fit was tighter than I had expected. No o-rings involved. Production variance? Battery Station/Duracell/Energizer CR13A is what I have tried...

    So Malkoff has 1x21700 bodies now. Waiting on 2x21700

    You can run 2x123 in the 21700. I would not have posted that comment had I not tried across both tubes ;) A sleeve is not mandatory in a pinch. I am sure someone else with a 21700 will chime in...

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Ease of actuation (versus the standard 18650) is due to 1) the (slightly) increased width of the 21700 tailcap i.e. greater surface area to make contact with and the 2) tailcap edge which does indeed bevel in towards the button. The grip notches are clearly meant to ease threading/unthreading.

    So Malkoff has 1x21700 bodies now. Waiting on 2x21700

    You can run 2x123 in the 21700. Concerned about battery rattle? Loop a #114 ring around each 123 = Zero rattle. 2x18350? No problem. Reasons not to go 21700: If you insist on the tricap, prefer the style of the 18650 shrouded tailcap, smaller hands, limited access to 21700, or support for...

    The Malkoff Front Porch

    Internal switch threads, internal switch o-ring, switch itself seats into the housing and is protected. Even so, #208 at the rear and #115 up front with unprotected Moli P42A and M50 is not a problem. Appreciate the ability to unthread the tailcap without affecting lanyard wraps. Easier to...
