I've tried a search but come up dry, has there been any talk of a Leaf extender ala A19's for his bodies?

I've got a C-M 2 x 18650 and a C-C 1 x 18650 on order but a A19 type extender for 18mm batteries would be superb especially for the 1 x 18650 bodies.

Pretty please :D

That would be nice.

I had a little trouble using an extender with a leef body. I was trying to use a lighthound A19 HA (I don't think the HA ones are real SF parts). I took it to a local machine shop to have it bored to fit 18xxx cells. But it did not work with my Leef 2x18500. I had to use a spacer similar to post number 25 in this tread.

The A19 worked fine with my 9P tube, to bad my 9P only fits 17xxx cells. If you compare the shoulder to tube end on the leef to a real SF you can see the Leef is a little shorter.

In the end I got it to work. However if there was a Leef A19 18xxx that would be 2 less hoops to jump through.

I really like the leefs. I have 3 so far and am looking forward to tailcaps as well.
