Any idea what the inside diameter of the tube is?
Too bad they don't make a matching head with a choice of incandescent or XP-G2 Or Nichia 219C. I suppose an XP-L would work with 16340? Anyway nice body and really nice tail but no head. Love to be able to build my iwn E1e.

The basic size issue is E are head load. So even from scratch, bigger cell = thinner threads. Im working on a body but it will be tail load so threads are stronger. But it will mean that head and tail are about the same size.
The heads are available in black, in the selection box you get the choice of HA and black ,in white and warm flavours. I do like the look and very tempted, trouble is i can find an E2e for around the same total cost(head/body/tail).
The classic example for me are the Beats headphones and earbuds. If one reads some reviews, the performance is only mediocre but everyone things the name makes it better. I will take my JLab earbuds for $30 over Beats any day of the week, especially if you are listening to music on your phone.All things considered, people will pay more for a brand label product than for an identical generic. But the true value of these utilities must be identical, if you're not, you know, insane, and actually believe a pair of $300 Air Jordons is somehow better than an otherwise identical but unbranded copy for $35.
Went back to LF's web page and looked at the 'E' offerings. Besides the afore mentioned E LED heads, they offer an E head only in black or natural. I am going to assume that it is an incan head, since all of the LED heads are fixed and one must select on option to order. That tells me that this head is designed for all of the E incan bulbs that LF sells. A quick email would tell you for sure if I am right or not.
But I have it on good authority that in a few months (with luck and Godspeed to LF) we'll indeed see LF heads for incandescent use that are E-compatible. I hope, like these bodies, the heads are more or less copies of the Elite head, and copies from the era before the superfluous and silly crenellations appeared. Let a flashlight be a flashlight, and nothing else, not a knife, not a weapon, not a bottle opener, just a portable lighting utility.
