I've read this thread a couple of time, because I thought I was missing something, but it appears I'm not. They look very nice, but $110 to store one battery? That's more than many lights, just for a storage tube. I would not spend that much, even though they do look very good.
very nicely done, very cool design, but helllla expensive just to carry one battery.
if there was a 500 lumen light on one end, then hell ya i'd buy one.....BUT.....hundred bucks or so (couple hun if converted to CDN $$$+shipping+duties+etc) just to store a battery? nope, aint gonna happen.
Love your work, but this is a months worth of food for me/
