I thought someone asked SF about this a while back and was told the KL1 could handle up to 4 primaries. Don't quote me on that though....

Go for it.......

I have 3 KL1s that I run with E1e bodies on protected rechargeable 123's. The cells cut out at 2.7V.

If you go with unprotected rechargeables pop them back in the charger when they start to dim.

From what I understand........it's 3.

I used to run a KL1 3rd gen on a Balrog 3 cell body with primaries .....but my tastes have gone to the single cell lights.

not trying to make this a sale thread but anyone wanting to know i think the body is sold but if you would like the kl1 shoot me a pm.

unless you can make me an awsome deal on the whole thing.

benchmade_boy: KL1 will run just fine on 2xRCR123 I used this setup quite a few times...
