Thanks Fivemega. I received the battery holder. It works great after I forfeited my man card and read the installation instructions. :thumbsup:


At first glance a man would be tempted to install it backwards, which of course, will not light up an LED. :crackup:

That's why you need to read instruction.

insert red marked battery holder to head side then install white plastic spacer, finally install tail cap.

However, I am glad it works for you and usefull. :twothumbs

I am going to be running one of these holders with Keeppowers 2500mah 16650's, but I have a few questions please.

I'm having a very hard time deciding between running either a Lumens Factory HO-M6R or their IMR-M6 lamps.

1. Will there be a difference in the color temperature between these two lamps? Although I want maximum output from my M6, I am concerned that using the IMR-M6 bulb will cause the 16650's voltage to sag more, resulting in a lower color temperature. Will be HO-M6R run better/whiter on the Keeppower 16650's?

2. How hard will the IMR-M6 bulb be on the lifespan of these cells? Would the HO-M6R lamp be more forgiving on the cells?

According to this, HO-M6R is 10.8 volt, 2.1 Amp bulb.
3 Keeppower 16650 can easily provide this kind of current while holding voltage as close as bulb requirements. So there is no problem at all and run time will be little over an hour.
Voltage of IMR M6 bulb is pretty close to HO-M6 and current draw is little more.
Since above batteries can still provide up to 3 Amps, therefore IMR-M6 will be brighter but not noticeable yellower.
If brightness is your main goal, IMR-M6 is your choice and of course, less run time.

Hello FiveMega. Thank you for the response. What is your opinion on running the IMR-M6?

EDIT: Response above answered my question. Thanks again.
