long time viewer, first time poster.

Im wondering if someone can machine me an aluminum (or some other material) battery case to be mounted on the back of a helmet. It will be for the new serv-light.

The battery is a 3.7v 6600mah pack with the following dimensions, 2.7165''x2.126''x0.71''

the case will need to have a flat spot that i can drill out to accept a waterproof cable gland, and i would like a little extra room for the cable so i can pull the battery out and unplug it.

I would love to do this project myself but i do not have the right tools for the job.

if any body is interested in making one or a few? could you give me a rough estimate of what you would charge.

thanks alot,
Alan Leedy

Welcome to CPF, adleedy.

I see your thread has been languishing in Custom Builders & Modders without a reply, so I'll move it to Materials/Mechanical/Machining for you - let's hope you'll have a response there.

I can make the battery case, but need more info on requirements. As I see it you are a caver, waterproof, easy swap out and helmet mount could be some of your requirements.

I have a small garage shop that I run during my spare time. CNC mill and other equipment. 40yrs in the trade.

If you still have the requirement,contact me.

Approx off the hip would be $65 thru $80 depending on design.

I believe that description is for an 18650 pack:
