Thank you for the support, byfixer. Just trying to continue the passion, I am a Surefire lego lover myself so I want to bring more parts out for everyone to update and upgrade their lights. Both older and newer platforms.
And it's amazing I can actually turn on an E-series light wearing gloves now. Twist and go. You kind of could with a Z52, but not as easily. Who would have thought that would happen... Most importantly.. it just looks cool though.
I am thinking at a lumens factory 2 cell classic e series body that can take 18650 unprotected cells. Unprotected cells are fine with lumens factory e series heads as they have low voltage protection built in, but what about with my surefire defender ultra 1000 lm head. Would that drain unprotected cells beyond safe levels if I was not careful? Any other reasons why unprotected cells may not be ideal with surefire heads?
Well surefires are generally designed for lithium primary cells so they have no need for low voltage protection. Actually it would be a downside as you wouldn’t be able to completely drain your cells. So no, it will not have LVP. Other issues, well depending on the design you may overdrive the circuitry and ruin the light as the voltage for rechargeable cells are higher voltage. And a single 18650 may not be enough
