Your thoughts on the 21700 format?
... is probably the main thing holding me back. Neither of my chargers have the slack for another 5mm. And after 21700 there's the new hawtness the 26800 which like 21700 a few years back is also barely supported by any chargers. Lastly it's not like 18650 is holding me back in any meaningful way - I require neither staggering luminz nor hours of runtime.As long as the batteries fit in my charger, I'm a willing to get different cells.
So if brand xxxx made a 25700 light with a 7Ah battery, great 'cause it'll fit in my charger.
Just NOT going to buy a new charger for it.
Got one of those I had almost forgotten about.I've got one of them just wired magnetic USB chargers will do any singular battery , solves the size problem as it has no cradle.
I guess today I rediscover old purchases - got a couple Lii-100s that might have the margin to squeeze a 21700 into.If you are willing to buy from aliexpress, LiitoKala has inexpensive chargers that will fit a 21700 battery for $5 to $10.
You must not have a Nitecore E4K. That light is the perfect size for getting a good grip and the large side switch makes it easy to operate. The user interface is a different story.Every time I grab something thicker than an 18650 light, I notice that I dont like the bigger form factor.
1*18650 light + a spare cell wins any time.
